Valentine’s Day Activity: Love Coupons for the Family

valentines day love coupons

Acts of Love are the best gifts you can give, in my opinion. You are going to love this Acts of Love Coupons for the family idea and all the fun that comes with it.

I prefer gifts that tell me that you actually thought about me and considered my likes and desires when purchasing a gift. Or that you spent time making me something. And even better, spending time with you and sharing life over coffee. Those are gifts I enjoy receiving. When we first got married my husband liked to purchase extravagant and expensive gifts for me. I always ended up returning them because I prefer the gift of time, service and conversation any day than an expensive $200 bracelet.

I have three boys and I want them to know that:

  • Love is not expressed with expensive extravagant gifts.
  • Valentines day is not just about boyfriends and girlfriends.
  •  That our time and service can also be gifts of love that we share with each other.

I shared my heart behind this last year here in this post.

How this works:

  1. The week of Valentines day give each family member a set of coupons.
  2. Fill out your coupons for each individual in your family.
  3. Give one coupon a day to each family member throughout the week.
  4. You can’t write a coupon for something that you can’t do yourself (unless you asked permission to the person helping you first).

End with a fun Family Valentines celebration we do a scavenger hunt for the kids and end with them finding their Valentines day treat read about it here.

***Don’t forget to plan something special for your spouse. ***

It’s important that our kids see that we make time for not just them but also for our spouse. At the end of this month a group of mom bloggers and myself will be joining forces to bring you 14 Days of Dating our Husbands. Hopefully, this will encourage you and give you some ideas.

Stay tune for more  fun or you can follow us via your favorite social network to get our updates:Twitter,Pinterest or Facebook and our readers preferred way via email.

Feel free to right-click image and cut and paste it into your word document and print out. I think I will have it out all year.
