Valentine’s Day – Simply a day at the beginning of every year marked with a post-it prompting those ‘in love’ to show how much ‘in love’ they truly are.
Marketed as a day for couples, endless images reflect the perfection of a candle lit dinner for two, trimmed thornless roses and a loving gaze shared between two people.
But, what happens when that love turns two into three? Or even four?
Show me a Valentine’s Day billboard reflecting the modern day family. Let’s throw a crisp white high chair and bedtime blues between the seats awaiting our February 14th couple... Hmmm, not so appealing anymore huh?
There will come a time in most couples lives where diapers creep in on date night.
If you have children you will know how hard it is to organise some time alone. So, if a candle lit dinner for two is the ultimate gift on Valentine’s Day, I imagine most mums and dads involuntarily cancel themselves out when deciding to celebrate this popular occasion.
More often than not, it is a haphazard scurry to the shops for a nice card and a box of chocolates, a gift that may have been well intended, but really holds little impact let alone lasting memory.
As mums and dads , we tend to look on days, such as Valentine’s Day, as a little indulgent silliness that got thrown out with first dates and the on-again-off-again single life. When you have kids, everything else lacks importance. And, the smiles and cuddles they give, well, those moments are worth more than any candle lit dinner for two or single stem rose.
When your child looks into your eyes, that is the moment you realise exactly how much love can be shared between you and another person.
This Valentine’s Day why not give a gift that, not only reflects how you feel, it will be remembered as the day a Little Prince or Princess joined in on the celebration. A perfect gift for the keepsake box and a thoughtful way to bring your children into a day that really is not just for couples.
Show daddy how much he is loved and appreciated by his little Princess, or tell mummy how much a little boys heart belongs to her.
Give a unique and unexpected gift that will bring a smile to any parents face on a day where love should be celebrated by everyone in the family.
