Valentine’s Day is a day for celebrating all that you love about your partner and finding ways to make him or her feel special. There are plenty of ways to make your partner feel special, no matter how long you’ve been together. Take a look at five ways you can impress your significant other this Valentine’s Day:
1. Cook His or Her Favorite Meal
Gather the ingredients to make your spouse his or her favorite meal or perhaps something they’ve been wanting to try, but haven’t had the chance. Only do this if you’ve got some sort of skills in the kitchen. Otherwise, you might end up ruining the meal part of the evening. If you’re not a whiz in the kitchen, you can always order something from their favorite restaurant and present it beautifully by candlelight.
2. Get Some Great Lingerie
Flowers, chocolates and lingerie may be customary Valentine’s gifts, but who said that was a bad thing? This February 14th, surprise your loved one with a new-and-improved version of these classic gifts. Instead of roses, why not spring for a nice potted succulent she can keep on her home-office desk? In place of department store chocolates, get a gourmet mix. If you generally wear black or leopard print lingerie, consider trying something new for this special day, such as a sexy bow teddy or racy red lace. Chances are he’ll love it.
3. Write Them a Love Letter
Sit down and write a love letter to your partner this Valentine’s Day to make the day even more special. You don’t have to be a professional writer to tell your loved one just how much he or she means to you and how happy you are to have him or her in your life. Get some pretty stationery and handwrite a love letter. Pour out your heart and soul and hold nothing back because it’s something he or she will cherish for the rest of their lives. Make it memorable and special to make the day as special as it can be.
4. Send Him or Her on a Scavenger Hunt
What’s more fun and romantic than a scavenger hunt that takes you to your favorite places throughout the city? Or maybe just throughout the house? Plan a scavenger hunt for your partner that sends him to a new place with a creative and heartfelt gift at each location — maybe something brings back memories you two shared together. Remember, this doesn’t have to be something extravagant. It just has to be meaningful and creative if you really want to get the most out of it. So start thinking about clues, hints, and riddles you can use in your scavenger hunt and the places you want to include on it.
5. Surprise Her with a Nice Piece of Jewelry
One way to show your partner you love her is to surprise her with a beautiful piece of jewelry. Engraved lockets, heart-shaped necklaces, diamond earrings — they’re all great, but you’ll really win her over with something personalized. Opt for a piece that symbolizes your love story. That could be a necklace imprinted with your anniversary date or something more subtle like the coordinates of where you met. Gifting customized, hand stamped jewelry is like writing a love note she can wear to always keep it with her. Win, win.
Planning the Perfect Valentine’s Day
Making your Valentine’s Day as special as it can be by finding new ways to impress your significant other is the ultimate gift. Just remember to be creative and think about what would make your spouse most happy before you begin planning the day. Whether you cook their favorite meal, get a nice piece of lingerie, send them on a scavenger hunt, write them a love letter, or get them a nice piece of jewelry, you have plenty of ideas to get you started.
