We all love prepping surprises for our loved ones. These surprises can be for birthdays and anniversaries and of course, Valentine’s Day. If you want to make this year’s Valentine’s Day more special, here are a few things you would want to keep in mind.
First, we have the dinner reservation. You could do lunch if by chance the 14th falls on a weekend or the two of you happen to have days off, but dinner by far is more romantic. Think about it. The starry skies, candlelight and just you two is a perfect start to Valentine’s Day. It need not necessarily be dinner at some fancy restaurant. It can even be at a restaurant the two of you have been wanting to try out or some place she has mentioned saying that she wanted to try out. Unless you are visiting a franchise or regular coffee shop, be sure to have a reservation made in advance because these places can get pretty crowded during Valentine’s Day.
Next on the list for Valentine’s Day essentials are your Valentine’s Day flower. Of course you can stick to the regular red roses, but unless it’s her favourite flower or you have just begun dating and do not know her favourite flower, be sure to stay away from the roses if there is any possibility.
Another good idea is to check with your restaurant if there is any way to keep your Valentine’s Day flower there in advance as a surprise. While your lady might feel neglected upon picking her up with no flowers, it’s always a nicer gesture to surprise her after!
While gifts aren’t always mandatory for Valentine’s Day, it’s always a good idea to have a small trinket of made available for your lady if that is possible and falls within your budget. Again it adds to the element of surprise and makes the night even more memorable.
If you happen to be working with an extremely large budget at hand, do get creative and step beyond the standard dinner reservation. If it works for you, check the possibility of booking a night out in town for you or to your favourite resort for a surprise weekend getaway.
The thing about Valentine’s Day is that it’s not only the standard day for your proclamation of love, but it’s also a great day to go that extra mile for your love one. It’s also a great day to go down on your knees and propose, if that’s what is in mind for you!
