Some of the best Valentine’s Days I have had didn’t evolve, spending a ton of money. They were spent having quality time together doing something we both love.
I would much rather spend time with my husband than worry about how much he spent on me. He still often surprises me with something even though he’s not supposed to. Rat!Whether you and your love are hoping for a romantic holiday or a chill evening, here are 14 of our favorite date night ideas for Valentine's Day, all of which you can do at home! Click To Tweet
Getting out to a fancy dinner with just the hubby on Valentine’s Day isn’t always possible with kids either.
Our babysitter has a life too, and I’m sure would want to celebrate the day as well. We didn’t feel like imposing this year. Luckily, we don’t have to go anywhere to be romantic with these Valentine’s Day ideas.
No matter what romantic thing you have up your sleeves, remember to set the mood. Candles, music, and flowers can go a long way to making a night at home feel special. We often opt for flowers from Nearly Natural.
All of their artificial flowers and plants look great all year long, and you don’t have to worry about them wilting in the middle of your grand gesture.
Take this phalaenopsis silk flower arrangement, for instance. Its bright blooms don’t need water, won’t die, and most importantly, will make for a gorgeous Valentine’s Day dinner centerpiece!
To be honest, I would rather receive an artificial plant than cut flowers that die within a couple of days. Are you with me ladies?

Quotes About Love
“Being married is like having somebody permanently in your corner. It feels limitless, not limited.”
“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”
-Robert A. Heinlein

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: where I does not exist nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
