It’s that time of the year already when love is all around us. Or in a less Hollywood-ish way, we’re fast approaching Valentine’s Day. And while you may have grand plans to spend this day just like last year’s and the ones before that – working and watching TV – how about you actually make it worthwhile for your partner and, of course, yourself?!
Make 2017’s Valentine’s Day the most memorable of your decades-long marriage, in fact-and that, without spending extravagantly. How?
Here are 9 affordable ideas of Valentine’s Day gifts for her- 9 ways to make this lovey-dovey day as amazing for her as it gets-
Hand-made flower bouquet
Anything hand-made is far more special than even the costliest of online Valentine gifts. While there’s a range of items you can make for her yourself, from teddy bears to a beautiful chair, go with a flower bouquet. Buy flower online – her favorite ones – and decorate them together in a beautiful vase with chocolates and soft toys around. Offer her this piece of beauty the first thing in the morning.
A Surprise breakfast date
Those costly dinner dates are over-hyped. Period. So instead of planning an end-of-the-day romantic candle light meal, give the day a perfect start by taking her on a surprise breakfast date. Plan for this a bit early and pick a good breakfast restaurant in advance. Keep it simple and casual. Be on your toes and look enthused for the whole day ahead.
Chocolates, chocolates, chocolates
Even in her 40s, nothing would make her happier than a pack of delicious chocolates. Okay, not ‘nothing’… But still, chocolates are not only the-must for every special occasion as this one, but they’re also the perfect remedy for nearly everything! So fill her Valentine’s Day with chocolates (and chocolate cakes). There are many online stores who not only have an amazing collection but can also deliver the pack of chocolates to your home throughout the day and surprise her every time.
Reminisce the old, sweet memories
You two have spent so many years together—experienced so many experiences and created so many beautiful memories. Time now to take some time off and re-live all those wonderful moments; the way you met, the first time you kissed, the marriage, the first trip together, and so many other ‘firsts’. By the end you will realize just how much you two love each other and want to spend so many decades to come together.
Leave love notes for her
Even if you’re not a writer, leave sweet love notes for her throughout the day— on bed, mirror, in wardrobe, balcony, drawers and more. You don’t have to be a poet; just write in simple words and be more expressive. Tell her all that you always wanted to tell but couldn’t. Let her know just how much you love her and want to spend the remaining of your life together. Keep it sweet, simple and short. And please, don’t look for ‘ideas’ on web.
Prepare her a delicious lunch
For a change, it’s now time to cook for her. Even if you’re the worst chef ever and think you could seriously mess up the lunch, cook anyway. It’s not as much about the meal per se but your effort that’s more important and considered. So look excited; ask her to take a seat and (try) to cook her favorite lunch. Do it on your own—of course, with a recipe book (and fire extinguisher, just in case) by your side.
Plan a memorable vacation together
When was the last time you two took a trip together? And not to your ‘durr waale’ relatives but on a romantic escape? If it’s too long to even remember, it’s now time to plan a vacation together. Choose an ideal destination and aim for the coming holiday season. Sure, it’s going to be a bit costly! But it’s all worth in exchange to that million-dollar smile on her face.
No movie… a romantic play instead
Movie dates are for regular days. On Valentine’s Day you might want to do something different and exceptional. So instead of taking her to the same movie theatre and watch a cliché Rom-Com movie, take her to see a romantic play. Look around for what’s playing in your local theatre and book in advance.
Make the next morning equally special
Keep the romantic feel of Valentine’s Day alive even on 15th February. Get up early the next morning and prepare her a decent breakfast. Offer her chocolates and cakes and fresh Valentines Day roses. Top online stores are your go-to destination for everything here. Make sure she feels just as special the next day, week, month, and the whole year.
These are 9 amazing ideas to plan a memorable Valentine’s Day 2017 for your wifey. Now you know, get to planning right away.
