Valentine ’s Day doesn’t have to involve heart-shaped boxes full of chocolate or dozens of red roses. If you want to pamper your better half, you can do it in different, more personal ways.
How about arranging a spa day?
An At-Home Spa is the perfect solution if you want to pamper your partner without spending a huge amount of money. Indulge in the luxuries that you are normally too busy to enjoy. Take a warm footbath together and follow-up with a foot massage, buy a facemask at the drugstore and perform an at-home facial – your partner will surely enjoy it. For that extra wellness-feeling place scented oil in the room and transform your living room into an exclusive spa.
Turn up the cosiness with an At-Home Cinema experience
You can also get his or her favourite movie on DVD or streaming and get cosy under a warm throw with popcorn. This is the perfect solution if you want to celebrate the day but don't want it to be a big deal. If you want to make the evening a bit more special than the regular Sunday night in front of the TV, then place an air bed in the living room and make it a perfect place to snuggle with lots of pillows and duvets.
And of course, remember the all-important snacks – a good movie demands a decent amount of delicious snacks. Make sure to buy your partners favourites and serve them in small cute bowls.
A homemade dinner is always a winner
Sure, it is nice to eat at a fancy restaurant but it can also be quite nice to stay in and cook yourself. By preparing a home-cooked dinner for that special someone, you show him or her that you care and put some energy into the night. If you’re not the new MasterChef then fear not – the meal does not have to be fancy – if set a beautiful table you are going to win lots of points.
Place a decorative vase on the dining table (maybe with some beautiful flowers), and set the table with some decorative plates and glasses – and don’t forget the romantic candles! A cosy setting will make your food shine and your partner grateful for the effort.
Happy Valentine's Day!
