Although we usually don’t think about our parents on Valentine’s Day, they also should be reminded about how much we love them on this special day.
Our parents are the first examples of what a relationship looks like, they help us get through a lot, and they helped raise us. They have been there for us and have seen us at our best and worst. What would be a better way than to give them a surprise and show them some love on Valentine’s Day.
Now because your parents may have plans, you may want to plan on giving them their gift before or after Valentine’s Day. There is nothing wrong with that, in fact it will even be a bigger surprise to them that way.
Make them dinner!
Either do a small dinner or a three course meal. If that sounds too intimidating if you have any siblings maybe you can ask them to help you out.
If you haven’t cooked before try something easy. Chicken and pasta are pretty easy dishes that you can’t mess up. Buy some bread and have salad ready and BAM! Dinner is served.
If you are comfortable in the kitchen try to make their favorite recipe. My parents love Asian food, so I would (if I felt more comfortable in the kitchen) try an Asian inspired recipe.
Treat them to a date night!
Whether it is a trip to a spa, restaurant, or movies; your parents deserve some time to themselves. You can always buy a gift card for them. To make it extra special make a card to go with the money for their date night.
Make something for your parents.
This one is really simple. Just get a 52 card deck from a dollar store and get creative! I made one for my mom and she loved it! There are so many different ideas on how to do this if you need help. Just check out pinterest if you need some help
