This Valentines Day ditch the ordinary, and somewhat mundane, treats and gifts and give your partner to a special day within the comforts of your own home. There are lots of things you can do and share together to make the day one to remember.
Spend some quality time together in a warm, bubbled filled bath. Turn off the bright light and create a romantic atmosphere with tea-lights and scented candles, sip chilled champagne and have warm towels to wrap your loved one in. They will adore sharing the experience and your thoughtfulness.
Surprises are always nice on Valentines Day. Place a single rose in an unexpected place, for example in the airing cupboard, in the cupboard under the sink or in the fridge, stand back and watch the smile appear on your lover’s face.
Chores are not romantic, however, lending a hand, or swapping chores, will brake the boring routine, and show that you have put some thought into making life a little easier for your partner.
Build a temporary den from blankets, pillows and cushions and invite your Valentine to share a quiet evening watching a romantic film, while selecting their favourite chocolates and sipping a glass of wine or scrumptious hot chocolate topped with marshmallows.
Create a restaurant at home. Set the table, dim the lights, chill the wine and order a take-away or cook-up your own special treat to impress. Take it up a level by transforming your bedroom into a hotel retreat. Clean the room, put fresh linen on the bed, plump up the pillows, scatter roses petals under, or on top, of the duvet, and place a gold foil wrapped chocolate on the pillow for a surprise that will show you have conquered the art of romance.
There are many ways you can share a fantastic Valentines Day without having to leave the comfort of your home. Check out this infographic to see how.
