10 Ways to Show Love this Valentine’s Day

It’s February and everyone’s mind is on Valentine’s Day. Aside from being a day for lovers, I believe that Valentine’s Day is a day when we can show love to those around us. That includes your family and friends. This Valentine’s Day try something different and reach out in love to those around you.

Here are 10 creative ways to spread that love this Valentine’s Day.


Write a ‘thank you’ note

There’s nothing as important as showing those you love how much you appreciate them for being a part of your life. This Valentine’s Day, write a ‘thank you’ letter to those you care about. Write out just exactly what you appreciate about them.


Plan a special meal with your loved ones

Let’s face it: food is a great way to bring people together. This Valentine’s Day, plan a special meal with those you care about. It’s not only a good excuse to have a good time but it can turn into a moment where you can create wonderful memories. And food has a way of doing just that.


Tell those you care about how much you love them

This is similar to writing a ‘thank you’ note. The only difference is that you tell others how much you care about them face-to-face. It makes it really special and more personal. Visit those you care about and tell them how much you love them. Those three words (I love you) said from the heart are so special.


Buy your loved ones something special

Now when I say “something special” I don’t mean something expensive. I mean something that is thoughtful no matter how small it is. For example, a picture frame with a picture of your whole family is something your parents will appreciate. A simple rose is also very special. What is important is that it comes from the heart.


Give a warm hug

You have no idea what kind of problems people go through on a daily basis. Depression, anxiety and loneliness are just some of the problems majority of people go through. Sometimes a love-filled hug is all they need to make their day a little brighter.

Reach out to someone in need

If you think that Valentine’s Day is only for those you love then you are wrong. It is a day when you should also reach out to those who have no one to love and care for them. This Valentine’s Day, plan a visit to old people’s home or a homeless shelter and show them love, support and reassurance.


Do a random act of kindness

What’s one thing you can do for someone to make their day? Offer to do the dishes. Carry the bags. Do the shopping. Clean the house. Pick your loved one up from work. Take the dog for a walk this time. Do something thoughtful this Valentine’s Day.


Get flowers and chocolates

This has become a cliché but it is still a favourite on Valentine’s Day. Carefully pick beautiful roses or just one rose. Accompany them with your loved one’s favourite chocolates. But most of all, give them with loads of love straight from the heart.


Plan a special outing with your loved ones

Why not spend Valentine’s Day with your loved ones? Pick a lovely spot. It could be a nice restaurant or a little café in your neighbourhood. Use it as an opportunity to have fun, relax and share love.


Plan a surprise

Make Valentine’s Day fun by surprising your loved ones with something special. Is there something that someone you love and care about has been longing to have? Is there a show or concert they want to go to? Give those you love little surprise gifts that they would never have dreamt they would receive from you.

Goodbyes are always hard

Today is the last day of January, and believe it or not, unlike many others, I am a bit sad to see January 2018 go. Goodbyes are always hard for me. January has been a very long month as usual. It has gone on for so long, that at some point, I thought it would never end. I am always a bit reluctant to say goodbye to January because it means the new year has started for real, and I have to get on with it.

January started off slow and quiet. It has been full of ups and downs, with the fever coming around, leaving me feeling horrible. It was my birthday some days ago, and I had a good time celebrating with the family, not letting the sickness take over my special day. I have also been very busy with blog work and my other freelance jobs. Also, I finally got the time to list some items on eBay. I got so many items to get rid of, and I am looking to give many to various charities and sell the rest on eBay this year, so wish me luck.

I am looking forward to February and all what the new month brings. It is the Valentine’s Day month of love, so expect some lovey dovey posts on Fashion and Style Police. I plan to work hard and play even harder in the month of February. Going easy on myself is one thing I am working on this year, so a lot of me time has been scheduled to get some quality TLC.

What was January like for you? Do you have any plans for February? Do sound off in the comments section, let’s chat.
