Valentine's Day falls on a Thursday this year, so there aren't
many day-of events. Luckily, plenty of our favorite family
destinations have chosen to host Valentine's Day events ahead of
time. Check out our list for dances, craft nights and more.
We all usually think of Valentine's Day as a time to
shower our loved ones with sweet or chocolate treats. But there are
plenty of ways to make Valentine's Day special for your kids that
don't involve a sugar rush (and of course the subsequent crash from
that short-but-sweet high).
From pink pancakes to spagetti and sweet-balls, we have a
full menu of lovely foods to serve your family from breakfast to
dinner. Valentine's Day has never tasted so good.
From stained-glass hearts to tissue-paper flowers, these
Valentine's Day crafts are sure to melt hearts this February.
There's nothing quite as special as a handmade gift, but we all
can't be artists. Luckily, there are plenty of talented people on
Etsy, an online marketplace for
handmade and vintage goods, eager to sell you their creations. And
one of the best features about Etsy is that you can search for
sellers by their location, which means you can still shop local
even on the internet.
We've rounded up our favorite picks from Chicago-based Etsy
shops for gifts for babies, kids, moms, dads and anyone else you
might want to share some love with. We've chosen gifts that not
only help you show someone you care, but also show Chicago some
love as well.
