It is our goal to make Valentine’s Day about everyone this year. This 2020 is going to be our Twenty Plenty – because we have plenty of love to give! The challenge above ensures that everyone can show love to literally whoever they want – even to strangers. Let’s be honest, we all need a little love! With the giveaway included, Kikki and Franki gets to show some love too.

Although we’re showing love to others, its equally important to show yourself some love as well. Take a bubble bath, light those candles, do a skincare routine, sleep in on the weekends or even buy yourself some flowers! Whatever puts a smile on your face, do it. You deserve a little special treatment too, so take this month as a reminder to love yourself as well as others.

We can’t wait to see how creative you all get with these challenges. Join us from the 1st-14th of February 2020 by participating along with us! Keep an eye out on our Facebook and Instagram stories because we will be participating along with you all!

What does Valentine’s Day mean to Kikki and Franki? Well, it’s quite simple. This day is supposed to be a single day of love, but we say that it can be the beginning of a lifetime of love. We treat all our loved ones so special for 24 hours, when we can do it all day, every day. This year, we are determined to make sure that all the sweet and thoughtful love that we give lasts longer than a day. 2020 can be an entire year full of love, care and kindness. We can all be a light in someone else’s day, even if all the love we can give at times is a simple smile.

Showing love to others doesn’t have to always involve these huge gestures (although now and then, those are pretty amazing). Showing love can be asking someone a simple “How was your day?” and genuinely listening to the answer. It can be a statement like “this song reminds me of you” that can just squish a person’s heart. It can even be a sweet “mommy and daddy love you!” note in your kid’s lunchbox! It is entirely up to you.

As humans, we are hotwired to show love automatically. Even though this is true, we completely understand that some people find it difficult to show affection to anyone, so we’ve put together a few simple tips on how to show affection to others, especially if you’re not the “lovey-dovey” type.

7 simple ways to show love every day

  1. Smile at everyone. Yes, everyone. A simple smile can brighten up someone’s dull day!
  2. Tell someone something you love about them. Let’s be honest, we all love to receive compliments and a little confidence-boost can go a long way.
  3. Always say “please”.
  4. Always say “thank you”.
  5. When someone asks how your day was, always ask how there’s was in return. Being a good listener and caring about their answer really shows a lot more love than you think.
  6. If you can’t give someone advice, give them a hug – they probably need it. A hug speaks volumes when words don’t do justice.
  7. Flowers – yes, they actually work – especially flowers for no reason. And if you’re not a flower type of person, any small and thoughtful gift would work, even chocolate!

7 simple ways to show yourself love every day

  1. Speak success and victory into your life. Your words are your most powerful weapon.
  2. Have a “quote for the year” and stick to it. Make sure it motivates you and comforts you at the same time.
  3. Don’t be so hard on yourself. You’re allowed to make mistakes or have a bad day. Be patient with yourself.
  4. Have some necessary “me-time”. Whether you ready a book, cook or even take a nap. Make sure to take some time out of your busy schedule for yourself.
  5. Look after your body. Whether you work out, eat better, or just have a home-based spa day. Whatever you believe will be good for your body, do it.
  6. Have a sleep schedule. Trust me, this directly affects your mood every day.
  7. Every time you think a negative thought about yourself, directly oppose it with a positive statement. Be kind to yourself.

Without love, none of us would be here. It sounds cliché, but it’s true! No matter what you’ve gone through, no matter what you’ve witnessed, you deserve the kind of love that makes you feel nothing less than pure joy all day, every day. There is nothing that can replace that gap in your life except raw, honest love.

Okay, we all knew this was coming (LOL). Valentine’s Day is kind of a way bigger deal to all you love birds than it is to anyone else, and that’s totally okay! With that said, the Kikki and Franki girls would like to give some Valentine’s Day advice! We all know what it’s like to have no idea how to celebrate this day of love. It can be super frustrating, especially when you’re really trying to meet your partner’s expectations. We would just like to bring some relief to all you couples’ by mentioning some really fun date ideas! You’re welcome boys!

14 Unique Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day 2020

  1. Visit the planetarium together. Let’s be real, we don’t have enough stars to see in Joburg.
  2. Go somewhere neither of you have been before for a hike date.
  3. Have an art picnic. Get creative with art supplies and canvases and have some fun!
  4. Go to the Pretoria Zoo. Come on, when was the last time you went to a zoo!?
  5. Take a road trip to anywhere for a romantic weekend away.
  6. Have a movie-night in your backyard. Don’t pretend you have no idea what this is, we all have wanted to do this before (lol).
  7. Go for a hot-air balloon ride. Yes, we can actually do this in Joburg.
  8. Go horse riding for the weekend. Like, legitimate horse riding in a huge open field.
  9. Go to a spa for the weekend. We all deserve a pamper weekend and your man will enjoy it too.
  10. Go ice-skating. So, what if you fall? Bails and fails make for the best memories!
  11. Have a bonfire together – who doesn’t love roasted marshmallows!?
  12. Go dancing for the night! “A little party never killed no body…”
  13. Have a “flip a coin” date. Have 2 options for a date and let heads or tails decide your entire evening. Have a spontaneous time!
  14. Just. Do. Nothing. No social media. No TV. Nothing. Just alone time with your partner. Mute the rest of the world for one night.

These ideas will guarantee the perfect Valentine’s Date! Feel free to post and tag us to let us know which date you choose! Use the hashtag #kikkiandfrankidateidea so we don’t miss your post!
