Four Ways To Enjoy Valentine's Day This Year


Valentine’s Day can be a funny time of year. There is often a lot of pressure built up around the day, whether you’re single, married or in a new relationship. James and I have been together for just over nine years and so we have had our fair share of Valentine’s Days together. 

We never make too much of a big deal about it however and don’t even buy each other gifts. We usually just like to have a nice meal at home and use it as an excuse to spend some time together. Although I know a lot of people like to give gifts or think of exciting and romantic things to do. So whether you’re wanting to treat you man to a Men’s Trimmer, or your lucky lady to a beautiful new fragrance, have a read through these ideas if you’re in need of some inspiration this Valentine’s day…


PLAN A SURPRISE


It may seem like a bit of a cliché but planning a surprise for your loved one for Valentine’s Day can make it truly romantic. I’m not saying that you need to book a weekend away in Paris and spend a fortune on a swanky hotel (although that would be freaking amazing and if anyone wanted to do this for me I certainly wouldn’t turn it down!) But something that they would love and wouldn’t expect would be a Valentine’s gift. You could buy them their favourite sweet treat to have for pudding, run them a hot bath to enjoy before you go out, or pack a picnic and drive to a romantic spot. 

BUY A GIFT


One way a lot of couples like to celebrate Valentine’s Day is by buying each other gifts. It’s a lovely time of year to treat the one you love with a little token to show them you care. Flowers, trinkets and chocolates are very popular gifts but if you fancied pushing the boat out then jewellery, watches or fragrances are another great option. 

SPEND TIME TOGETHER


One of the most important things about Valentine’s Day (and my personal favourite) is to take the opportunity to spend some time together. Whether you decide to treat each other to a surprise or a gift, be sure to spend some quality time with your partner. We like to celebrate Valentine’s Day by having a meal in and cracking open a bottle of wine. It’s nothing special but it is an excuse to have a good old catch up and a bit of a laugh together.

DON’T LET THE PRESSURE BUILD


So whether you’re single, spending your first Valentine’s Day with your partner or can’t think of a way to out-do last year’s celebration, don’t put pressure on yourself. Remember that Valentine’s Day is just one day out of the year as is not the be all and end all of any relationship. If you put too much pressure on yourself or your partner it will feel forced. Relax and have a fun time no matter how you decide to spend the day, as long as you’re together, that’s all that matters!


Will you be celebrating Valentine’s this year?
