If you love to love, why not plan a Valentine’s Day that includes the whole family? And what’s more, it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune.

The key is to find an activity or event that both your kids and your partner are going to enjoy. This may sound tough, but the chances are your significant other is really just a big kid at heart so this immediately makes your job as the Valentine's Day organiser a lot easier!

An enjoyable plan that involves all of the family doesn’t have to be an extravagant gesture either.

Here are four ways to make the day super special as a little crew:

1. Devote the morning to cooking scrumptious cookies and cakes with the kids. They will relish in getting a bit messy and you will have a hand in the kitchen, so it’s a win-win for all.

2. Follow it up with lunch out at the park or beach where the kids can play in your line of vision while you get to relax on a picnic rug with your special someone for a romantic lunch.

3. Add in a cricket set or a soccer ball to make it more fun. Play parents vs kids, or gang up on ‘Dad’. This will be a great bonding session, and an easy way to get your day’s worth of sunshine.

4. Finish the day off with a trip to the ice cream parlor or a dip in the ocean.

The best thing about this plan is that it is stress-free. No one is going to feel loved and appreciated if your’re trying to rule the day with an iron fist, so just unwind and enjoy yourself. Valentine's day is, after all, for you too.

So, take the holiday of love with proud conviction this year. Get silly, have fun, be romantic and most importantly prove that there is always enough love to go around!

Will you be spending Valentine’s Day with your family?
