  1. Wow! This is a long list of awesome ideas. Everyone will definitely find the perfect activity this love month. I really like the activities that you can do with your family like the scavenger hunt, Valentine’s Day dinner and covert cupid. In addition to this, I think we should also include our aging loved ones in celebrating Valentine’s Day. We can show our love to them by helping them with their daily activities, running errands for them and by spending time with them especially those who are inside facilities. Spending time with our loved ones s definitely the best gift we can give to them.
