1. Valentine’s Day Breakfast (above). Wow your love with this sweet breakfast idea by Wilton. There are so many ways you can vary this – trade a bagel for the donut, strawberries for the raspberries, etc. Be creative and don’t be afraid to get the kids involved!
2. Gummy Bear Heart Cookies. This is one recipe my kids will be really excited about. This idea, from One Little Project, involves baking with gummy bears! Use red or any colors you like. Blogger Alicia says, “The chewy and sweet gummy centers are the perfect contrast for the buttery and crumbly shortbread cookies!”

4. Heart Thumbprint Platter. This idea, from Simply Kierste Design Co., would make a great gift for a parent or grandparent this Valentine’s Day because “it captures a moment in time that is so fleeting–it won’t be long before their fingerprints will be bigger.” What you need: a white serving platter, glass paint and a Sharpie. We love this!
5. Chocolate Bars Made Special With Free Valentine’s Day Wrapper Downloads. Is there someone you love more than chocolate? Just print the labels, trim to size and secure with glue.
