Are you finding yourself in a situation where it is too late to prepare anything for valentines day, but you still want to make an impression and don’t want to look like you forgot about it?
Here is good news for you: it doesn’t matter the number of days you thought about it before, neither does it matter the amount of time or money you spent preparing for it. All that matters is the impression you leave. So, forget about buying perfume and flowers. Here are 5 things you can still do with little preparation to impress your better half.
Life is about creating memories, and especially about creating memories of the ones we love. Capture your love and make a photo shoot with your partner. Take photos of each other indoors, or go to a park nearby. Don’t forget to ask someone to take a few photos of the two of you together so you can remember the day.
Write down romantic notes
Sit down together on valentines day with 52 smaller sheets of paper in front of you. Start writing down the romantic ideas you have together. To give you some ideas, those could be: Plan a special date and pretend it is your first date, Take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage or Organize a bubble bath in a jacuzzi. Roll your notes up and put them in a jar. Every weekend take one out and do it.
Hold the baby
You’re a young family? Let your partner do what they want to do, for one day. Let her go to the spa or wherever she wants to take care of herself and her well-being. Let him go with his friends to do some sports activities or visit a game. Take care of the kids and don’t call every hour to ask things, only emergency calls are allowed. You are a pro team if you promise this to each other.
Get the red-and-white checkered blanket and find an old basket. Put two plates, silverware, a good bottle of wine and cheese. Add bread, fruits and chocolate and head to a lake, park or mountain. You’re living far up north? Here is how you prepare a picknick in the snow.
Endure their hobbies
True love is accepting each other for who they are. Something really sweet you can do is endure a hobby of your partner that isn’t really your thing. A marriage or partnership needs to be treated with great care, and this is a wonderful contribution to that. And hey, the return favor is on your partner 😉
