Sometimes it is not possible when you have a family to have a romantic couple like Valentine’s date you once had. But that does not mean you have to skip it. There are lots of great ways you can enjoy it with your children and your partner. As well as sending them gift baskets NZ here are some activities you might want to try out.
Do some crafting!
Rather than buying Valentine’s Day cards how about you all sit together and make each other cards? Get some card and everyone can choose the colour they think their recipient will love. You can decide whether you are keeping it easy to clean up with crayons and pencils, or going further with stickers, paints and maybe even glitter! Parents with young children tend to have a variety of crafting supplies already. Tissue paper, old wrapping paper, and more. Just make sure that everyone is going to get a card so no one is left out! When they are dry display them somewhere prominent.
Bake some treats and have afternoon tea
Baking together is a lot of fun and you can make heart-shaped shortbread and other small treats that would be good with an afternoon tea. You could have something sparkly if you are staying home and they can have grape juice or iced tea. If you are not great at baking there are doughs you can get from a shop and cut out those, or you could just order one of the afternoon tea gift baskets NZ you and the children would love and they can help set up. You could make your own finger sandwiches to go with it.
Head to a park
Children love going to a park and you could make it into something longer and more special with everyone going. They can entertain themselves for some of the time while you sit with your partner. You could take a picnic to enjoy even. Come up with some family games to play, create a treasure hunt for them and just have a good time.
Have a night in together
You could have a night in with the children watching a movie or playing board games. Get in gift baskets Auckland full of snacks you and they love. Choose chocolates for Valentine’s but you could also have gourmet popcorn, retro sweets, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, nuts, marshmallows and more.
Enjoy some adult food when the kids are in bed
When you have spent some time together as a family and the children are tired and heading to bed you could then have time together as a couple if you are not tired yourselves! This might be time for the adult-themed gift baskets Auckland. You could treat yourself to some cheese, crackers and wine, or try some gourmet or unusual foods. Or if you have not eaten yet, instead of eating out at a restaurant get in your favourite takeaway, or try something new! Enjoy that romantic meal but just have in the comfort of home. You could even dress up for each other.
