Show your love and appreciation

We often forget to show appreciation for our loved ones and tell them how truly special they are to us. Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love and it’s a good reminder to show important people in our lives how much we cherish and appreciate them. This doesn’t just have to be a partner – it could also be a friend or family member. But we can celebrate love all year round.

Think about something sincere and heartfelt you can do for a special person in your life. Here are some ideas to inspire you:

Cook one of their favourite meals – you can prepare the meal for them or cook it together.

Share your favourite pictures with them – looking at photos together is a great way to remember the wonderful times you’ve spent together. You could select some old photos and print a copy for them, or even create a photo book.

Organise a picnic – pack some snacks, drinks and a blanket and take them to a nice spot to have a picnic together. You can browse our recipes for food and drink ideas.

Write them a gratitude letter
– reflect on why this person is important to you and put it down in a letter to give to them. You may like to read the letter to them.

Do something they enjoy
– set time aside to join in activity they particularly enjoy. For example, you could watch their favourite movie or show, listen to their favourite music, drive or walk to a favourite spot, or get out in the garden together.

Pay them a visit – if you haven’t seen them in a while, taking the time to visit them and having a chat could make their day.
