Create a 'love space'
A splendid idea on Valentine’s Day is to open your heart to your sweetheart and reveal your true feelings. Set up a website – a ‘love space’ – to express yourself. Keep the focus on romance with weekly love notes, romantic poems and photos. You can even add a romantic love song that your sweetheart loves. Depending on how you and your sweetheart feel, you can make the site private or public to either share it or keep it just between the two of you. If it’s private, you’ll feel free to open your heart and write about your feelings without a care in the world.
Even in a world of technology, writing love letters is still as cool as it used to be. Yes, the world may have changed and e-mails and texts may be the order of the day, but a passionate love letter still possesses that eternal charm and out-of-this-world romanticism that tonnes would die for. So get your pen to paper and pour your feelings out for the one you love. Use simple words, and say how your sweetheart has changed your life. Then keep it somewhere you know your sweetheart is likely to find it. Don’t worry if you’re not too good with words. Your efforts will pay off into a moment that both of you will treasure forever – trust us!
Slow dancing is romantic, sexy and a perfect activity for Valentine’s Day. Choose some good mood music. Clear a portion of your living room or den to give you space to move. Place candles around the room. Have a bottle of champagne chilling in an ice bucket. Ladies, this is a great time to go for that slinky red dress you’ve been waiting to find an excuse to wear.
Chocolates have been associated with special events since the ingredients were originally discovered nearly 2,000 years ago. The Aztecs made special chocolate drinks that were used for celebrations. Nothing melts a heart like Valentine’s Day chocolates. Whether your sweetheart prefers milk chocolate, dark chocolate, chocolate with nuts, or even truffles, these confections send a message of love. And while Valentine’s Day chocolates might not last long, the loving sentiment definitely will.
Flowers are one of the most beautiful ways to express your love. That’s why roses are an indispensable gift for Valentine’s Day. Roses come in a different colours and arrangements, but the most popular rose for this fun holiday is the traditional red rose. In ancient Western mythology, the red rose was the favourite flower of Venus – the Roman goddess of love and beauty. This makes the red rose the perfect gift for someone you wish to see your love blossom with.
