Valentine’s Day is a special time for celebrating with your love or better half. If you want to make them feel loved, there are many ways to do about it. So, if you forgot to do something, don’t sweat! Just put a little effort into doing something fun and different this year.
Spending Quality Time Together
1.Arrange for dinner
You can book a reservation at their favourite restaurant or you can cook. It doesn’t even have to be fine dining. Often just putting something together in advance is a good way to show your Valentine that you care and that you’re thinking of them. Add some candles, turn down the lights, and it’s a perfect romantic evening.
2.Plan a day out
If you’re like most people, there are probably so many things to do in your area that you have just never gotten around to. Spend an entire day exploring with your significant other, and make a point of going places neither of you have ever been before. Go to a new museum, go paint balling together, or hike a long trail that you have both been interested in, but never had the time for. You never know–you might even get to see a fun new side of the person you love.
3.Go for a long walk together
If you go to a nature preserve or big park, bring a field guide to birds or wild flowers and have fun working together to identify what you see. If you’re in the city, do a self-guided walking tour together, wander down adorable side streets you’ve never noticed before, and make lots of stops to smell the roses.
4.Surprise your significant other with a weekend away
Book a few nights at a cosy bed and breakfast, or visit a nearby city for a few days. You might have to tell them to set aside the weekend for something special, but they don’t have to know where you’re going. Go all out, and make it a weekend to remember.
Affirming Your Loved One
1.Write your Valentine a note
Tell them how much you love them, and include specific things that you love about them, whether it’s how passionate they are about the things they love or their strong sense of justice or just the way they smile when they’re a little embarrassed.
- Usually the first attempt at writing a note is awkward and disjointed and you run out of space before you’ve said what you want to. Don’t stress: jot down a few ideas on a separate sheet of paper or write an entire first draft before you set anything down in your card.
2.Sit down together and tell your partner face-to-face what you love about them
Notes are nice and can be saved for another day, but few things are as thoughtful and affirming as having someone look directly into your eyes to tell you how much they love you and why.
- Try to make it about them. Say things like, “You’re such a compassionate person, and it really comes through in your interactions with people. They can tell how warm and kind you are within minutes of meeting you.” It’s okay to talk about how they make you feel, since you’re telling them why you love them, but try not to make it too self-centered. For example, “You’re such an open person that I’ve always felt like I could tell you anything,” is great, because it emphasizes a particular quality they possess and it tells them that you trust them.
- If you compliment them on physical features, be specific. Don’t just say, “You’re sexy,” or “You’re beautiful.” Say, “You have gorgeous eyes,” or “You walk so confidently, and it’s really attractive.”
Giving Special Gifts
1.Order their favorite takeout just the way they like it
When you know someone well, you learn their quirks: how well they like their burgers cooked, what they’re allergic to, that they can’t stand the texture of artichokes or hearts of palm. When you can actually order for someone, you show your love by actively paying attention to their likes and dislikes and communicating that you want to treat them well.
2.Send your partner, flowers
This gesture is classic, but that just makes it a clearer statement. If you know what their favorite flowers are, that’s great, but for many people, the gesture alone says it all.
