Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to show your love for that special someone in your life. This year, don’t just take them out for dinner and a movie – do something creative!
Here are 10 Creative Ways To Celebrate Baby’s First Valentine’s Day:
1. Send Some Baby Love
It’s so cute to make or buy Valentines and send them out to your baby’s sweeties – think grandparents, aunts, uncles, tiny baby friends. After all, who wouldn’t want to receive a love note from your adorable little one? Create cards of your design, or head over to Pinterest for ideas.
2. Take Dad to Lunch
If your guy works while you’re at home, make plans for a special lunch or dinner date with you and your baby.
A mid-shift visit from his baby girl or boy will brighten his Day and make Valentine’s Day extra special for everyone.
3. Red, White and Pink It Up
Of course, you’ll want to dress your trim in the colours of the Day. The stores are filled with special Valentine’s-themed outfits, or go shopping in your baby’s drawers for companies in shades of red, white, and pink (bonus for ribbons and lace!).
4. Start Something Growing
Start a seedling in a small pot indoors to symbolize the love you have for your brand-new baby. Choose something you can relocate outdoors when the weather allows, or buy a sweet potted plant that you can nurture with the same heart you do your baby.
5. Make Handprint Art
Preserve the memory of your baby’s tiny hands and feet through handprint art. You can go simple with a painted print or make a plaster print for something more ambitious and permanent.
6. Visit the Conservatory
If your town has a conservatory, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to visit with your baby and sweetie. Your little one will love looking at the beautiful, brightly cultured flowers; maybe they’ll even have roses, that symbol of love. Bonus: because the cosy greenhouses are always lovely and warm, they’re adorable to visit on a cold winter’s Day!
7. Start a Tradition
It’s your first year with your love bug, a great time to start traditions. Maybe you’ll get your baby girl a charm bracelet and add a new charm each year (wait until she’s three and it’s no longer a choking hazard before giving it to her).
Or consider starting a particular brag book about your little guy, to fill with pics and memories, and make long-term plans to give it to his spouse-to-be many years in the future. Anything to record the sweet, sweet love you feel for your little one right now!
8. Write a Love Letter
You didn’t know you could love anything so much; now’s the time to pour all of that adoration into a letter to reread to your baby on Valentine’s Day in the future. It’s something you will both treasure forever!

9. Do a Special Valentine’s Day Photo Shoot
To capture baby’s first Valentine’s Day, our parent photography expert suggests taking a fun self-portrait of you and your beloved little one and including your spouse/partner and the entire family if you can!
The forward-facing camera on your iPhone or other mobile device is perfect for this, or ask someone else to take the picture for you. Remember, it doesn’t have to be a perfect photo – it’s the love that counts, and the image will help you remember the moment.
