Come tomorrow 14th February 2018 the whole world will be celebrating Valentine’s Day.
It is a very important day as people express their love to loved ones and exchange gifts as well as perform certain activities to commemorate this day.
Lovers often go a step further in displaying affection to each other as well as express their love once again.
This Day has always followed a similar pattern year in year out. First, the town turns red as people wear their favourite red outfits as well as the influx of red roses at every corner of the town.
It is also a time when shops cash in on selling chocolates and sweets as couples rush to impress their loved ones with gifts associated with the day. All the bakeries in town will be filled with red and white cakes.
Not to be left out from the script is the chilled champagne and chocolate covered strawberries that couples are enticed with, the dinners, offers and sales for gifts.
However, we have a few tips to help you with this year’s Valentine Celebration.
According to Frankie Essex, “a girl would want to be wined and dined, pampered and bought something a little sexy on the most romantic day of the year.
For her it’s the little things that count, and surprises are good. Leaving little hidden gifts or cards around the house that your lady can find through the day is so romantic.
Leave them in places she can easily find them like the bathroom cabinet, her undies drawer or her handbag.
Get her some sexy lingerie– the old classic that never gets old! This is a great gift for her as well as you and her can both enjoy it later on.
Spoil her – Girls like to be spoilt! Perfume, chocolates, flowers, make-up are all perfect gifts for any girl. I also love my shoes so if a guy bought me a lovely pair of shoes I’d be over the moon.
Treat her to a nice romantic meal out- On Valentine’s night out with just me and my guy is perfect. Somewhere quiet and romantic where you can just be on your own together.
Treat her to a pamper session at home -Get some candles, some massage oils and dim the lights and really make her feel like a princess for a few hours.
For ladies please do unto your significant other what you expect from him. He doesn’t forbid nice gestures.
Still more suggestions from others
Have a group date at someone’s house or a chosen place. Gather a bunch of people for a stay-at-home group date or outdoor date and split the duties. Keep in mind that if your party consists of both singles and couples, there should be an even number of single men and women so that no one ends up feeling like a third wheel.
Give your lover a dozen roses and do it with a creative twist. Give eleven red roses and one white rose. Attach a note that reads: “In every bunch there’s one who stands out and you are that one.”
Send a Gift to her. Send it to her with a note that says, “I wish you were here.”
Unplug the TV. Put a note on the screen saying, “Turn me on instead.”
Write him a little love note. Insert it into the book he’s reading.
Make a custom banner. A big banner to welcome him home from a trip or just to say “I love you!”. Use construction paper and crayons, or poster board and markers, or old sheets and spray paint.
Dear guys, don’t just walk into the house tonight the way you always do. Pause on the porch; ring the doorbell; and greet her with one red rose and a bottle of champagne.
Get creative. Any gesture is better than no gesture at all.
