Can you believe it? Some people didn’t realize today is February 13, meaning Valentine’s Day is almost here. And there are probably many others who haven’t realized it yet.
Now, let’s dive into the history of Valentine’s Day. It goes way back to Roman and Christian traditions and got its name from St. Valentine. Over time, it turned into a widely celebrated day that reminds us how important love and connections are.
Quick heads up: No anger here—just a suggestion to try something different instead of the usual dinner dates and one way gifts. By now, all hotels and eateries are booked! Don’t roll your eyes.
Since Valentine’s falls on a weekday this year, it’s a good idea to plan activities that won’t take up too much time.
Here are detailed but easy ideas for both guys and girls to make this year’s celebration special:
Sip and paint : Get some painting tools, enjoy a glass of red wine, and create art together. Talk about your relationship or make plans for the future.
Senses Gifts: Give gifts that involve each of the five senses.
- For hearing: Make them a playlist or send them a jewelry store music ,Concert tickets, a record player, audiobooks, or a thoughtful voicemail.
- For touch: A cozy blanket, massage oil, a beautiful robe, or a shaving kit.
- For taste: Plan a homemade dinner, get a food basket of their favorite treats, or cook for them.
- For smell: scented Candles, essential oils, their favorite perfume, beard oils, bath bombs, or scented salts.
- For sight: Take them to a movie, get them books, a camera, sunglasses or plan a cozy movie night at home with snacks- not the usual Netflix and Chill where the tv rather watches while you make out. Sit through the movie and finish it.
- Spa Day: Treat your partner to a spa date after work with massages and pampering. You can even do a couple’s treatment for an extra special time together.
Fuel Coupons: Give practical yet thoughtful fuel coupons. Every time they fill up, they’ll think of you.
Flower Surprise: Forget the idea that some people don’t like flowers. Send a beautiful bouquet to your partner’s workplace for a day-long smile.
Love Jar: Take a jar and write down reasons you love your partner. Add some sweets if you like, and give it to them as a heartfelt gift.
This Valentine’s Day, break away from the usual and create simple, thoughtful moments that make your relationship even more special.
Keep in mind that you can show your special someone they’re cherished without splurging. Opt for gifts within your budget. And for those planning intimate moments, be responsible and prioritize protection.
As for us singles, expect some playful online gift commentary. From plastic flowers to standout gifts, we’ll be chiming in “awwwn” and “God when?”
This is my treat to you. Yeah, don’t mention.
