Chocolate boxes; teddy bears; rose bouquets; diamond jewelry; these are the classics when it comes to Valentine’s Day gift giving. While you can’t go wrong with a classic, celebrating a love that has seen quite a few February 14ths already sometimes requires you to go a little deeper.
Maybe this year, you want to express your love for your significant other in a more creative, meaningful way that will stay with them for much longer than a stuffed animal or a few pieces of chocolate. If that’s the case, check out these ideas for romantic Valentine’s Day gestures that send the perfect message to your sweetheart!
Cook up a classic candlelit meal.
Like we said, you can’t go wrong with a classic. But how about a romantic classic that’s just a little more personal for this Valentine’s Day? Create an intimate and ambient date night at home by cooking a delicious meal and setting a romantic scene. Make your partner’s favorite dish or share a special recipe from your culture or family traditions. Light a few candles, set a few dinner plates, and voila—a dreamy Valentine’s Day date neither of you will soon forget!
Take care of the daily chores.
Does your wife always do the laundry or wash the dishes? Or maybe your husband is always the one walking the dog or making the bed? This Valentine’s Day, take over their usual household responsibilities and gift them with some extra “me” time. If you’re feeling really romantic (and ambitious), try doing it for an entire week!
Set up a spa night.
Turn your home into a relaxation destination for your honey with a night of pampering just for them. Draw a bubble bath with candles and a glass of wine. Put together a basket of facemasks and foot scrubs to do together with some calming music playing. Or put on your masseuse hat and massage their achy, tired muscles until they feel like they’re in heaven.
Give them a love letter.
Gift your SO something meaningful that they can go back to again and again and be reminded of the depth of your love. Write a letter telling them how you feel about them, what you love about them, and the things they do for you that you’re grateful for. If a letter isn’t your style, write those same things out on sticky notes and post them all around the house for them to find and put a smile on their face.
What better way to set the mood on the holiday of love than filling the house with beautiful decorations of red, pink, and white? Transform your abode into an Instagram-worthy photo op with romantic décor to celebrate Valentine’s Day and—more importantly—your love for one another. You might scatter rose petals on the floor, set up ornate floral centerpieces on the tables, string up hanging hearts on the ceiling, and of course light candles galore! For a really stunning and unforgettable scene, get your hands on some Valentine’s Day balloon décor made by a balloon art specialist. An archway of balloon hearts, colorful balloon columns, or a balloon sculpture of their favorite animal will really make an impression!
Plan a movie night.
If cozy and casual is more the vibe of you and your partner, arranging an atmospheric at-home movie night is a thoughtful way to show them you wouldn’t want to be a homebody with anybody else. Turn the living room, bedroom, basement, or another comfy area into a movie theater for the night. Pile up pillows and blankets, stock up on snacks and drinks, and binge your favorite movies or ones you’ve been wanting to watch. After all, Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to stay in and snuggle with the apple of your eye.
