Just in case it slipped your mind, Valentine's Day is this Sunday. No need to panic and get nervous if you forgot, I have some quick and simple ideas that will make your significant other feel special.
Take it old school and start off with writing a love simple letter on paper to your significant other. There's something about writing your thoughts and feelings on paper that is sincere and genuine. Sometimes you end up sharing feelings that you would've never communicated verbally.
"It's the simple things that make the biggest impact. "
Valentine's Day doesn't have to be celebrated over dinner reservations at a fancy restaurant. Surprise your loved one with a romantic breakfast to let them know how much you appreciate and love them. Not a chef? Warming up some buttery croissants, brewing their favorite coffee or tea and a fresh bowl of strawberries will do the trick.
Nothing sets a romantic ambiance like candles. Candles bring a sense of warmth to a space while spreading a pleasant fragrance. If you are worried about leaving the candles burning unattended a great alternative is to get flameless candles. Tip: Use odd numbers when arranging candles. This will create aesthetic balance.
Everyone is going out to eat on Valentine's Day, so why don't you be different and cook a romantic dinner for your loved one. Set your table with fresh flowers, lit candles, wines glasses and your finest dinnerware. After all, this is a special occasion. Again, not a chef? No worries, order take out from your loved one's favorite restaurant and serve it on your best dinnerware.
There's something about the richness of chocolate that screams romance. However, you don't have to be cliché and purchase a heart shaped box of chocolate. Be specific to what your significant other likes. If they love a certain brand or type of dessert than that is what you should get. A great alternative to a box of chocolate is to make a cup of homemade hot chocolate with dusted chocolate flakes. That is sure to warm your hearts together.
However you decide to celebrate Valentine's Day I hope you get the opportunity to reflect and appreciate the loved ones around you.
