Three little words; I love you. Though traditionally valentines day is reserved for romantic love I think its a great excuse to remind all those that we love how we feel. Of course we like to go completely overboard, shouting it from the rooftops having valentines breakfasts, blowing up balloons and turning it a celebration.
Give that someone, be it your partner, son, daughter, friend, mother father, sister (you get my drift) something to make them feel loved, be it balloons blown up to fill a room or sent ready to fly out of a box, a message in a bottle (the modern version with a selection of favourite photos or video saved to a memory card), favourite homemade goodies always say i love you, and flowers, be it paper, freshly cut or a potted something that can grow can never be wrong.
If you're looking for a card that holds the right sentiment for children perhaps rather than an 'I love you' card which might not necessarily mark the day as any different, write an invitation for something you love to do together. Filling the day with memories of all those things you love to do.
Give children a personalised packet of seeds wrapped up with pretty paper and a big bow. Something to plant that can be nurtured, that will grow, blossom and just like love grow bigger every day.
