Truth be told, us Allens haven’t had a proper Valentine’s Day! This will be our 6th one together, and we’ve yet to get it right! (We we’re both always on work trips over Valentine’s Day while we were dating, and since we’ve been married we’ve had to work all day and night on Valentine’s Day! WE SUCK!) We are BREAKING that habit though this year!
That being said, Valentine’s Day doesn’t need to be something you go all out for! We promise you will survive! <3 On the other hand, if you love love, love holidays, love going over the top for that special someone in your life, there’s nothing wrong with going all out either! <3 BOTH ARE GREAT!
We wanted to share our Valentine’s Day date + gift ideas with you all today! From chill to over the top, we hope you find something that’s perfect for YOU!
Take your chick fil’ bae to Chick Fil A! Come home to a cozy little scene with Netflix/Amazon prime movies ready to go! (We recommend “The Choice” on prime! Forts encouraged!)
Ice skating with a side of cocoa to warm you up! (Or cuddles. Either way!) If you’re in Utah, midway has the cutest little ice rink!
Sledding! Any hill will do <3 don’t forget to warm your lover up afterwards! (;
Dinner at home! Cook together, light a candle, play some music, dress up, and enjoy! Don’t forget desert! Chocolate covered strawberries are easy and festive! (And delicious!)
Create a “museum of love” or “book of us” for your lover! Take them to all the significant places in your life together or have things that mean a lot to both on display! OR take pictures of anything and everything that has helped build you as a couple and turn it into a cute love book! Can be as romantic and creative as you make it! Just have fun with it! <3
Car drives up the canyon with a love playlist made especially for them on repeat! (And maybe some Hershey kisses to snack on!)
