**Don’t miss your chance to enter the incredible Valentine Giveaway at the bottom of this post and to check out more ideas from the sponsors of the giveaway.**

I love the opening scene in Mary Poppins where the wind changes direction and you know something special is about to happen. Bert is the first one to see it coming and sings in a whisper…

Winds in the east, mist coming in. Like somethin’ is brewin’ and bout to begin.

Can’t put me finger on what lies in store, but I fear what’s to happen all happened before.

Well, what if the winds were to change direction in your marriage this Valentines Day? What if something really special took place in your relationship? And what if YOU were the one to plan this something special? If these questions intrigue you, you’ve come to the right place.

We want to provide you with ideas to surprise your spouse in a special way this year by helping you do something you may have never considered. Why? Because romance doesn’t happen independently in marriage; it takes intentionality to make it happen.

What came naturally when you were dating, now takes thought and purpose.  It may have happened before, but it needs to happen once more.

There are so many great ideas, but what makes something romantic for one might not work for you. This is where studying your spouse and knowing what they love makes all the difference.

Check out our Romantic Valentine Ideas for Him or Romantic Valentine Ideas for Her to see if something stands out to you. Or you might want to choose one of our fun date night ideas, dinner date ideas or creative date ideas. Or use our ideas as a springboard for your own unique idea.

Don’t quit reading…there’s an incredible opportunity for you to win some amazing prizes for your Valentine at the end of this post!:-) Make this a Valentines Day your spouse won’t soon forget!

  2. Jennifer Fulks says:

    My favorite thing about my valentine is that he has taught me what unconditional love looks like.

    • Debi Walter says:

      Jennifer,
      What an excellent example your husband has demonstrated to you, his wife. He is emulating Christ and His love for the church. Love it!

      • Jennifer Fulks says:

        He really does. I have suffered from horrible pms mood swings and he never gave up on me, even when I was a most horrible person and would say awful, hurtful things to him, he endured and believed that it was not really the true me who was being so terrible. This past summer, life just got so unbearable and we were on the verge of divorce, we were going to counseling with no luck then in late September we both accepted Jesus back into our hearts and lives after more than a decade away. Our lives, our marriage, my mood swings, everything has changed so dramatically. Life is so amazing now! My 30’s were such a dark blur. We celebrated our 21st . anniversary this past November and we feel like newlyweds all over again.

      • Debi Walter says:

        I have chills hearing your story and how God met you in your darkness! Wonderful news and Awesome Savior!
        Blessings to you and your husband!
        Debi

  3. Cindy B says:

    Congrats on the upcoming 35th year! This past November we celebrated 43.

    • Debi Walter says:

      Cindy,
      That amazing!! 43 years together–so what do you tell people is the reason you’ve made it this far? I’d love to hear!
      Debi

      • Cindy B says:

        Jesus! And a load of determination…….
        Let me start by saying, Mr. B and I were not raised in Christian homes. Neither one of us knew anything about the Bible or anything about marriage. If that was not enough, we had several other strikes against us…….

        Strike 1~Divorce was rampant in our families. We had some in our family that got new spouses like some get new cars!
        Strike 2~When we married, I was 16, Mr. B was 18
        Strike 3~ We were both the oldest children in our families, and since our parents were divorced and the dads out of the pictures, we were the Alphas of our homes.

        BUT……we had a determination we were going to break the divorce cycle!

        We both came to know the Lord 5 years into our marriage.
        We have served the Lord for 38 yrs. now. Even though a miracle had taken place in our lives, we had a lot of baggage to work through and throw out. I thank God for Grace & Mercy,

      • Debi Walter says:

        You said it so well! The only reason any marriage makes it through decades of good time and horrible times is the kindness, grace and mercy of God! Thank you for sharing part of your story with us. It will bring hope to those who may be discouraged in their relationship right now. What a testimony you have!
        Blessings,
        Debi

      • Cindy B says:

        Thank you Debi.
        I am ashamed to say, but it is our testimony, that is was only 3 1/2 years ago I finally learned what true biblical respect and submission and being a helpmeet toward my husband was. I thought I knew before, I thought it was my duty as his helpmeet to make him the perfect husband, the perfect father, and even the perfect pastor.
        Because of Gods patience with me, His mercy and grace……. I now have a private facebook page to help other wives get it right earlier in their marriage than I did.
        So for the discouraged – never give up! There is always help, no matter how long you have been married or how old you are.

      • Debi Walter says:

        Amen! Don’t apologize for the timing of God in your life and marriage. He is never late, but in the delays He gives us a unique testimony to help those He will send our way.

  4. Karin says:

    My favorite thing about my Valentine is his kind, loving, patient, understanding heart. He loves me in spite of my weaknesses. What a sweet post! Glad to have found your blog through Paulette’s reblog!:)

    • Debi Walter says:

      Hey Karin,
      We’re happy to have been found!:-) It sounds like your husband is doing a good job representing Christ in your marriage. Wonderful!
      Hope to hear from you again!
      Blessings,
      Debi

  5. Chris Duchardt says:

    My Favorite thing about my Valentine is that she has loved me through somethings that other women may have given up on me during those times. She has stood by me during my “recovery” and lifestyle changes. Taking away my smart phone and installing protection software on our computers was the best thing she could have done for me! Love you my Dear Melissa!

    • Debi Walter says:

      Chris,
      Sounds like your wife has taken her wedding vows seriously. What an example. Thank you for sharing, and we’re glad you took the time to comment.
      Blessings,
      Debi

  6. Lisa says:

    My favorite thing about my Valentine is that he loves me, and it shows even when (especially when) I’m not very loveable.

    • Debi Walter says:

      Lisa,
      What a gift it is to be loved in such a way. These are the elements of a lasting marriage that stands through all the storms of life.
      You are a blessed woman.
      Thanks for commenting,
      Debi

  7. John P says:

    The favorite thing about my Valentine is that she still takes my breath away after 35 years of marriage.

  8. belcanto10r says:

    One of my favorite things about Valentine’s day is that it isn’t really special…My Beloved deserves the best of me all year and we work toward making EVERY day like Valentine’s day. We dont’ always succeed (Probably less than half the time) but the effort is rewarding!

    • Debi Walter says:

      What a great goal and mindset–to make everyday Valentine’s Day. But it is nice to do something extraordinary from time to time. Thank you for sharing your heart and excellent idea.
      Debi

  9. Destiny says:

    My favorite thing about my Valentine is how patient and loving he is with me! I never knew someone could love me as much as he does.

    • Debi Walter says:

      Destiny,
      Sounds like your husband is loving you as Christ loves the church–think of how patient and loving Christ is with us. So glad God has blessed you with such a husband. A gift from God!
      Blessings,
      Debi

  10. Brian says:

    My favorite thing about my valentine is simply that she is mine, my partner in the adventure of life, Everything else is just icing on the cake. And there’s a lot of icing. Like, I’m taking corner piece with upper and lower border trim and icing flowers squeezed on.

  11. Melodye says:

    My favorite thing about my valentine is the way he cares for me. After almost 40 years of marriage he still puts me first. Always serving, in sickness and in health. He’s the love of my life!

    • Debi Walter says:

      Melodye,
      And he has always loved you extravagantly. That’s what I love about being your friends–your marriage inspires our’s to be better. Love you both!
      Debi

  12. Jill W says:

    My favorite thing about my Valentine is his sweet, patient, loving nature.

  13. Adam's Eve says:

    My Valentine is so patient and kind with me, even when I’m in a horrible mood. He tries really hard to cheer me up. My favorite thing about my Valentine is his unconditional love and respect for me.

  14. Patricia Reagan Milstead says:

    My favorite thing about my Valentine is that he has taught me how important communication is to our marriage. We have been married 16 years, this is a second marriage for both of us, and raised four kids together, through it all he has always pushed for us to talk things out. He is my sweetie and he makes me laugh.

  15. Kristen says:

    I like spending time with my husband.

  16. Markus says:

    My favorite thing about my valentine: her smiling eyes!

  17. Jenna Marlow says:

    My favorite thing about my Valentine is the way he plays beauty shop without complaining with my 3 and 6 year old!:)
