Valentine’s Day is a day to show someone how much you love them.
Is a meal the idea that makes the day? Or is it a bouquet of flowers at the beginning of the day that really helps?
Looking at some of the most traditional ways to celebrate the day of love, take a look at the following five ways to woo your loved one Valentine’s Day.
1. Think about the card
The first step to starting a good and memorable Valentine’s Day for anyone is a card – and not just any old card picked up at the local supermarket in a rush with a sloppy verse that has no meaning.
A card should be picked with thought, giving great attention to the wording inside and not just the overall design – the design can be attractive, but the right verse can often be priceless.
2. Get them a thoughtful gift
The second point used by many is a little present for the recipient to open along with the card. This doesn’t necessarily mean a huge amount of money has to be spent – a simple box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers is enough to help the day advance in the manner to which you hope.
As with the card, it’s thought that counts for everything here.
3. Treat them to a meal
Particularly popular and one of the most common approaches used on Valentine’s Day, treating your loved one to a meal is a traditional favourite.
Each individual has a different approach to the idea of a meal – some prefer to stay in and cook a special meal complimented with a bottle of wine and candle light, whilst others choose to dine out at a local or favourite restaurant with their partner, surrounded by the same ideas of a home cooked meal with the added atmosphere of other couples.
Both are perfect ideas and the approach is totally up to the individual in charge of preparations, keeping in mind what their partner would prefer.
4. Bring romance to the bedroom
Ending where the day began, after a long a day, the bedroom is the place a couple can feel relaxed and enjoy the end of their day in any desired way.
What you need to keep in mind here is that your time in the bedroom on Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be like any other day – make it special by getting some rose petals and lighting some candles and end Valentine’s Day with a night to remember.
5. Pop the question
The point that can change your life and one that some people choose to put off, each year it seems as though more and more people and proposing to their loved ones on Valentine’s Day.
The choosing of the time on the day is totally up to the individual, although many choose to propose after a meal once the mood is relaxed and the enjoyment is at its highest.
Not everyone has the courage to propose – or accept a proposal – in public and so don’t worry if you decide to choose to carry out the nervous proposal at home with your loved one – each idea can be romantic and this solely depends the proposer.
A point to note if you do plan to propose is that the ring is something that your partner is going to have wear for – hopefully – the rest of their lives and so you need to get it perfect.
If you don’t trust your own judgement, that’s fine – give them a plain band and then ask them to choose their own ring. If you’re going to go for it and choose the ring yourself, however, make sure that you know exactly what it is that they like and don’t just assume they’re going to want a traditional engagement ring.
