A list of the 6 best Valentine’s tips
Valentine’s Day never used to be about love for me. My father’s birthday is the 14th of February, so the ‘day of love’ has always been about him. Only I’ve had a lovely boyfriend for the past three years and, although I do think Valentine’s Day is somewhat overrated, I find I secretly love doing something a little special with him, too. So I start brainstorming early every year.
Do you already have plans for this year or do you have no idea what to do? With or without a boyfriend, Valentine’s lover or hater, I have a number of tips to make 14 February a special day.
No Valentine? No problem! Plan a date with your best girlfriend. Why should Valentine’s Day only be for couples? It’s just as much fun to show your best friend what she means to you in a special way.
Take a walk on the wild side
Is there something you always wanted to do but never dared? This Valentine’s Day, take up the challenge and plan that long-haul trip/balloon flight/bungee jump. It’s bound to give you a huge kick and show you the kind of power woman you are!
Who runs the world? Girls!
Show that you don’t need a man to turn Valentine’s Day into a party. Go out on the town, hit the gym or treat yourself to a spa. Whatever you do, make it your day!
Surprise your lover
Is there something your boyfriend or girlfriend has always wanted to do? A masterclass with a top chef, a city trip to Berlin or paintballing? Do it together this Valentine’s Day.
A trip down memory lane
I once wrote a long letter to my boyfriend. In it I told him what our relationship means to me and the feelings I have about it. I covered everything, from the day we met to the present. He loved reading it all from my perspective.
The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach
Bring out your inner domestic goddess and make a delicious fancy dinner for your boyfriend or girlfriend. Light some candles, pour a glass of wine (or two) and enjoy a special meal together.
I already know what I’ll be doing on Valentine’s Day this year. I hope that with these tips, I have also been able to give you some great ideas for yours! And don’t forget to buy a nice lingerie set for this romantic day. If you feel beautiful, it shows. Do you already have a set in mind?
