Love is sweet, and it’s even sweeter when you’re sharing it with someone you love. There is only one problem with Valentine’s Day, and that it can feel rather overdone – flowers, chocolates, making promises of love – it all happens February 14th and it’s coming around fast. Trying to figure out how to make Valentine’s Day the most perfect day for the person that you love can be hard, drawing a blank makes it all complicated. However, if you want to make your loved one swoon, try out these seven tips. No matter what, they’ll get a day to remember. Let’s take a look at how you can have a totally awesome day – without going bankrupt.
Get Ahead Of Yourself.
Have you ever sent a card long before a date? If the answer is no, you’re already going to lose. You need to let the person of your affection know that you’re thinking of them before the date comes around. Planning ahead shows you’re thoughtful and really looking forward to it. Plus, it’s often much cheaper to send cards early, as Valentine’s Day ramps the price tag right up. You could also choose to head to netvouchercodes so that you can get a great deal on a hotel. Booking it up early is going to save your wallet from a beating, and you’re going to get some fantastic deals on places you may not have thought about before.
Send Flowers From Your Phone.
Did you forget to order her favourite tulips? Don’t panic. So many apps out there now can support you buying beautiful flowers with premium discounts, and you can do same day delivery with money off for most of them! It may sound cliche, but everyone loves getting flowers. They last ages and they remind you all the time that someone is thinking of you. Preparation is key, so don’t mess this one up!
Famous First, Middle & Last Words.
It doesn’t matter who says they don’t, everyone loves poetry. Men and women find themselves lost in the words of Wordsworth and Keats, and Shakespeare’s words precede him. Find the poem she loves the most and memorize it. Then, write some of the lines on different card and dot them around her home. On the mirror, on the refrigerator, in her purse; anywhere she could brush a hand against it and find your gesture. It’s just a way to bring a smile to her face, and it’s free!
Beat The Restaurant Ramp-Up.
People mostly avoid restaurants on holidays because the cost shoots up. You can get vouchers for eateries online that will bring the cost of a meal down, but if you want to go all the way, set up a romantic dinner at home. Buy in her favourite foods, tone down the lights and scatter roses around the room. A dinner at home is far more intimate, exciting and there’s no pressure to send back a lukewarm lobster dish if you don’t want to! There are plenty of online recipes that will take your breath away so check them out here.
Book A Trip.
If you want to be truly spontaneous, you should have planned this months ago. You can scour online for deals if you look early enough, and you can be seriously fun with what you choose. Whisk her to a white sugar beach for a few days as a surprise, take her to Disneyland to ride the rollercoasters. Whatever you choose, the amount of thought behind it is going to make her fall for you over and over again.
Go For A Stroll.
If you live in the city, a stroll by the city lights, with some exciting street food to share, can be a very exciting date for you both. It may not sound like much, but your company together means you have a chance to talk about things that interest you, voice opinions on current events and talk together without interruption. It’s sometimes the simplest of plans that have the most meaning.
Go Home Together.
Well, at the end of a successful Valentine, it’s nice to get a kiss from the person you love. Be gentlemanly, chaste and unexpectant (but albeit prepared) for the end of the night. Don’t do anything you’re not comfortable with, and make your Valentine remember the day for a long time to come.
Some people think Valentine’s Day is tacky and that there is no need for a day to show off your love. However, it doesn’t have to be overpriced and commercial; not if you do it right.
