It all starts on February 5th – the night of the Super Bowl. This may just be the event he remembers most this Valentines Day! 🙂

- Personalized Crossword Puzzle – Take some time with a Scrabble board and make a puzzle using words that represent all the things you love about him or things you did that were special this past year, or for your entire married life. Transfer the crossword puzzle onto a piece of paper or cardstock. Once you finish – write clues to go with each word. On Valentine’s Day spend time reminiscing while he solves the crossword puzzle. Or you can build your own crossword puzzle on-line at Discovery’s Puzzlemaker site. This is easier if you’re computer savvy. Or here’s another Crossword Puzzle site to try, thanks to Tara!

- Countdown to Valentine’s Day – Plan to give your husband a surprise every day from Feb. 1 – the 14th. It can be a simple note in his lunch, baking his favorite cookies, back massage, washing and massaging his feet, etc. The idea is to do something special for 14 days.
- Romantic Dinner At Your Place – Send your husband an invitation to have dinner at “your place” on February 14th. Make arrangements for the children if you can. If you can’t, then plan your evening for after they have all gone to bed. Tell him to arrive at a time where you know you’ll be ready. He will need to take a change of clothes with him to work. Then, fix a four course dinner to be served in an unusual place – be it outside under the stars (if the weather permits) or in the middle of the living room using a card table, or in your bedroom. I’ve found it really fun to set up a nice table in a completely different part of the house – it makes it feel like your away someplace special. Use a nice table lamp for a centerpiece or candles if you prefer. The idea is to make it the most romantic table for two you’ve ever enjoyed! And girls – you can dress really sexy for this dinner since it will be for HIS eyes only!
