Looking for Creative Valentine’s Day Ideas?
If you’re eagerly anticipating Valentine’s Day this year (or perhaps dreading the pressure of planning something wonderful for your sweetie), then this article will provide you with some handy tips for making it a romantic day to remember.
Let’s face it: guys get props for creativity. In order to please your sweetie, you’ll want to think creatively and put forth that extra little bit of effort in your planning. Sure, every woman loves chocolates and flowers, but could there be a more trite or cliche’ way to express your love. Instead, consider tickets to a play or concert, dinner at an off-the-wall location, or a daytime picnic in the park. The idea doesn’t have to be outrageous (like hiring a skywriter to blast your names across the sky) or expensive (like anything Richard Branson might come up with) but it should simply demonstrate that you put some thought into this year’s Valentine’s celebration. She’ll love you for it.
Often, the answer is right under your nose if you’ll only start paying attention (and even if you’re not paying attention most of the time, there’s still time right now to start!) Hints are dropped, flyers or magazines are left lying around, and comments are made – and all of these hold clues to the answer of what might make the perfect gift or activity for Valentine’s Day. Maybe she’s recently complained about stress, tension or physical discomfort. In that case, a massage gift certificate may be just the ticket. Maybe a getaway weekend is the key if your partner feels they are working too hard, or say they “need a you heard your sweetheart make a recent comment about something she thought was lovely or unusual? Buy it for her! If you can’t afford the whole thing (maybe it was a diamond necklace) then make an effort to give her at least part of it (“Honey, I know it’s not as glamorous as that diamond necklace you were admiring, but I wanted to give you something sparkly and beautiful this year because I love you so much”).
Get Her Feedback
There’s nothing worse than spending a lot of time and money planning a special event for that special someone, only to find out it’s not what they really wanted. If you can find simple, subtle ways to get some feedback on some of your ideas, you can avoid this kind of disappointment and plan a Valentine’s Day that truly shines for you both.
By following these simple steps, you will certainly create a memorable and romantic Valentine’s day that you both will cherish for years to come.
