Romantic Valentine Ideas and Valentine Day Gifts From Washington DC to Seattle and Spokane

It must be that time of year again. Valentines Day, February 14th, 2015 is heading our way.  There are amazing cupid ideas springing forth for enjoying this celebration of romance. Many couples become engaged or get married on Valentines Day. Personally, I would love to see the emphasis and action on love year round. As Anne Wycoff says in her Essay on,  "Love Is A Verb" on

                                                 LOVE IS AN ACTION WORD

For those of us who are out of touch with creative thinking, I would like to share some valentine ideas.  First of all romance does not mean you must spend enormous amounts of money to prove your affection for someone. There are fun ways to valentine the man or woman in your life. If you are into gifting, preview some of the suggestions below...but fist here are some creative ways to valentine.

Take note of hints and desires, not needs - being impractical at times is fun because not to many of us want brown socks on Valentines Day. Maybe socks or undies with hearts will bring an endearment. But endearment and memories is what you are after.  Consider the following:

If your love interest takes their lunch to work, pin your valentine on their fruit or slip it in the bag/box. Maybe you love to bake and cookies are a favorite. Say it first thing in the A.M with an amazing breakfast.

Find 10 ways to make your Love Interest happy and write it out as a proclamation or a coupon book to collect on.  Do at least two on the list - on Valentines Day- take action of the rest through out the weeks ahead.
    ie      give you a foot rub  - cook your favorite meal once a week  -  have your ladies night out here or poker night here once a month -  start a new sport together - take you to dinner at our favorite restaurant - wash your car once a month - (do what continually makes them happy).

Create a romantic dinner for two at home. This really takes effort if you have children requiring care.
Work on the details (babysitter) days ahead, menu, shop, cook... so you are not worn out that night.

If you - are or your love interest is into APPS - download their phone or IPad with... A Free App
