Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and you probably want to start thinking of ways to show how much you love your partner. Getting them a gift has always worked, but sometimes you need to think outside the box and come up with other ideas.
The following are six ways to surprise your partner on Valentine’s Day:
1. Breakfast in bed
This is the way to go if you want to kick off your valentine’s day on a high note. However, it can’t just be an ordinary breakfast. Make your partner his/her favorite breakfast and serve it to them like the king or queen they should feel they are. You can even use the food to pass a message to them, for instance, through heart-shaped pancakes.
2. Make them an album or compilation video of your memorable moments together
If you’ve been together for a long time, you probably have thousands of pictures and videos you’ve taken together. Go through them and pick those that you know have some emotional meaning or were taken during special moments. You may need your geeky nephew’s help to make the video if you are not tech-savvy.
3. Take them on a surprise getaway trip
A lot of couples never get to enjoy time alone and together, especially with young kids or jobs that don’t allow them to see each other enough. A getaway trip is perfect for getting you and your partner some alone time away from the regular schedule. The trip doesn’t have to be expensive. Even if just a day, you get to spend quality time with your partner without worrying about other people or responsibilities back home.
4. Be creative or crafty
Getting your loved one an expensive gift may make them smile, but what will bring tears to their eyes – hopefully of happiness – is giving them a gift that you made for them. Think of what they love and have a passion for. Use that as inspiration to craft the perfect gift. Something you can try is making them DIY cards with special messages that mean something just to them. This is far more thoughtful than generic messages found in other cards.
5. Take a trip down memory lane
Every couple has those moments that truly define their relationship and love for each other. Surprise your partner by going to some of the places where those moments happened, such as where you first met or where you first kissed. Reliving old memories together helps both of you remember where it all started and why you fell for each other.
6. Surprise them with flowers at their workplace
Flowers are accepted all over the world as the gift that shows your love for someone. Sending flowers to your partner at their workplace makes them feel appreciated especially since they get to show it off to other workmates. You can even go the extra mile and make the delivery yourself. You can include a heartfelt note saying how much you love them or what you plan to do to them later that night.
7. Have their favorite cocktail waiting for them when they get home
Research really exotic sexy cocktails, you know, the really pretty ones you have to make an effort to prepare with names like Blushing Geisha and Love Potion #9 . Get it all ready and then have it waiting for your partner when they get home. For bonus points wear something sexy to correspond.
