Love is in the air again and while it is a highly commercial season, may I suggest giving the gift of a memory? Sure a dinner date and a gift, but a bit of creativity woven in can create memories to last a lifetime.
Sometimes the novelty of a relationship wears off after a few years and the fast pace of our lifestyles leave little time for us to do all those romantic things that we used to do at the beginning, but you can be sure your romantic side is still in there somewhere.
Your beau may not let on that Valentine’s Day means anything but if there’s anything we can be sure about, it’s that both men and women love to feel valued and the best way to show this is to put in some time to add your personal touch.
So, whether you want some ideas to set the tone or a sweet idea that won’t break your bank account, here are some quirky ways of injecting some creativity in your Valentine’s Day plans.
Promise Bae the World – and make good on that promise too
You might want to take the time to look loving at your love and let him/her know that you’ve noticed the efforts made to make the relationship work, the little gestures of kindness and consideration that can often go unnoticed and be taken for granted.
Doing the chores without being prompted, calling in the middle of the day to ensure you are okay, ignoring your little annoying habits that used to drive him crazy.
Then you let it be known that you feel that your boo deserves the world and you will do everything you can to deliver that.
Then you’ll want to go out to the office supplies store and get yourself a small globe, package it and have it delivered with the reminder “Because I promised you the world” or “You’re my world.”
You can tweak it to your own taste but you get the idea. It can be a precursor to the main event or an accompaniment to your gift.
