7 Ways to Experience Valentine’s Day Without the Kids

valentine's day without kidsPIN IT!Valentine’s Day is a day to not only be loved but to also be told that you are loved. This doesn’t mean you haven’t been telling each other this every day but February 14 comes with a special magic that we all love to experience. Sadly, for a lot of married couples who have kids, this doesn’t seem to happen often as there are bills to pay, kids to tend to, the home to clean and life as a whole to deal with.

For some of us, forget about Valentine’s day coming up and we’re clueless on what to do for our spouse which is why I have written a few ideas on how you can still experience Valentine’s day without kids. Yes without the kids all you have to do is to find a way to get them out of the house for the night or take Valentine out of the house.


Surprise your spouse with a candlelit table for two in the bedroom, make a really nice meal, after dinner you can throw in a massage in the bedroom and end the night with a romantic movie.


I absolutely love getaways! They can be the most romantic thing ever also considering the fact that you get to spend time in a neutral place makes it more relaxing, plan a one night getaway, it could be a surprise or you can both work on it together but making it a surprise pulls out the magic in it.


Go on a date with your spouse to where you first met each other. Ooh, how much memories this will bring back! Talk about the valentine magic! My husband and I closed down the restaurant chatting for hours the night we met.


Surprise your spouse in the office before lunch, take them to the parking lot and ask them to go eat lunch with you, wear something really sexy underneath your outfit and let them get a peek. Once they’re riled up, immediately you get into the car, give them a good and passionate kiss, and tell them you will be waiting for them at home when they get off.


If you are with words, write a really good romantic poem, design it and frame it, ask your spouse to go get some air with you outside, present the poem by reading it aloud. Writing not your thing? How about a painted or drawing? Anything handmade is sure to knock their socks off.


Take a day off work and spend the whole day together at home. Fill the bed and room with roses, take a warm long bath together accompanied by some good wine and music.


Have people from different countries all over the world write love notes to your spouse. This is one of the most romantic things I have ever done. If you are looking to do this there is a Facebook group where you can find people all over the world willing to switch notes with you. Get at least 15 notes that say “Dear (Your spouse’s name), (your name)’s love for you is so big that it has reached (country)”.

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?
