Valentines day is only a few weeks away, so it’s about time we started considering ways to surprise the special person in our lives. Some people say that Valentines day is too commercialised and just another day for the card companies to make money, but we think that’s nonsense! Valentines day is the perfect time to show your other half what they mean to you. Don’t be a Valentines day scrooge – treat your other half with one of these great surprises:
1. A Handmade Card
A handmade card is the perfect place to start, especially if you believe that Valentine’s day is just another day invented to make card companies money. You’re outsmarting them and showing your other half that you care! Even if you lack creative skills and the card looks as if a 3 year old made it (a 3 year old with no hands), your other half will be overjoyed that you spent so much time making them a card. If all else fails, fill it with glitter and hearts so they’re virtually covered in love.
2. Sexy Underwear
You can either surprise your other half by buying them sexy underwear, or wearing sexy underwear for them. If you’re a woman looking to buy some gorgeous underwear for the special day, Le Beau Lingerie is the perfect place for you. If you’re a fella looking to buy your special lady some undergarments, the same goes for you – just make sure you pick something that she’ll like and not something purely for yourself. If you’re a woman buying for your man – one of those thongs with a funny face on the crotch will probably satisfy him.
3. A Meal In a Posh Restaurant
Sometimes, you can’t beat a meal in a posh restaurant. How posh the restaurant is depends on your standards; you could take them to Jamie Oliver’s restaurant for some top nosh, or Pizza Hut if that’s more your thing.
4. A Homecooked Meal
If you just can’t afford the meal in a posh restaurant, whipping one up yourself is a great idea. Not only is it a thoughtful gesture, you show you care by slaving away over a hot stove for your other half. Just make sure you don’t cook them oven chips and egg, pizza and chips, chicken nuggets and chips, or anything else that is a) too easy and b) bad for your health.
5. Pamper Them
You could start in the morning by making them breakfast in bed, then run them a relaxing bath with meditation music and candles. Offer them a relaxing massage to ease their aches and pains, and the rest is up to you. Wink wink.
6. Whisk Them Away
A weekend away is sure to surprise and excite your other half. You could take them anywhere, whether it’s another country or simply another city.
Now you have no excuse to ‘forget’ the most romantic day of the year – go ahead and treat your loved one!
