Valentine’s Day provides countless opportunities to express love – both to yourself and to those in your life that you truly care about. Whether you are in a romantic relationship or not is no matter. There’s always something you can do to show some love.
Here are a couple of creative ideas to spend this day:
1. Stay Indoors
As the big day approaches, restaurants will be overbooked and crowded at best. Why huddle with the masses when you can opt for some alone time with the love of your life indoors?
Of course, you need to bring some magic to the day. To make this happen, make a delectable meal for them and get a bit creative with the menu. Bring out the fancy dishes, layer up with an even fancier tablecloth, and add flowers, candles, wine, and chocolate to the mix.
2. Make a Card
When you create a card from scratch, it will have more meaning than if you simply bought it right off the shelves. Add your own words to the card to describe the person you are gifting it to – such as a warm note of appreciation or a poem. Then, copyright the card for additional fun.
3. Plan a Hunt
If you have children, help them hide clues all around the house. Tape chocolate treats to each clue. The clues should lead up to a meaningful Valentine’s Day gift at the end. Possibilities include personal certificates of love and services, handwritten notes of appreciation, or something a bit more expensive. Have your loved one follow the trail until they get to the end of the hunt.
Valentine’s Day is one of the best days to propose to the love of your life. If you have been going steady for a while and you’ve already decided that she is the one for you, what better way than to ask for her hand on the most romantic of days?
5. Single Your Friends
If you and your friends are single, think about hanging out together on Valentine’s. Being in the company of other singles, particularly when they are close to you, is a great way to spend the day.
A good idea would be to invite them over for some alcohol and comfort food, or a night out on the town. Whatever you decide, keep it fun to ensure that no one keeps wishing they were in a romantic relationship.
6. Write a Poem
If you are, however, in a relationship, think about composing something sweet and genuine for your significant other. Write the poem down on a mirror with lipstick or in the form of a letter that they can keep for future reference. Check your poem for language use by free essay checker software.
7. Go Stargazing
There’s something special about sleeping right under the stars with someone you truly love and care for. If you’ve got the money for it, head over to Kenya. They have wonderful wooden platforms covered with dry thatch. The beds are also moveable to ensure you get maximum exposure to the night skies of the African bush. Loisaba Conservancy provides all this and more.
8. Recreate Your First Date
Pretend that you just met and relieve your first date all over again. Look at your partner like they are new to you and act the same way you did when you first started seeing each other.
9. Go to a Hotel
Whether the hotel is far from your home or nearby, there’s something sexy about being treated to star treatment. The time you’ll get with your love will prove even more beneficial after Valentine’s Day.
10. Make Others Feel the Love
If you are single, go out of your way to make another person feel loved. This does not mean that you should display romantic love, no. Rather, do something truly loving – give the lonely kid in your class a small gift, make a donation to a charity, or volunteer with a local organization.
Over and above everything else, Valentine’s Day is more about others than it is about you. Make a point of showing others that you love and care for them, even if the love isn’t necessarily romantic. It will go a long way in turning their day for the better.
