Valentines is few days away. What are your plans?
Here are few ideas, how not to break a bank and have most wonderful time!
Picnic! Dig out that thermos and make some tea. Pack some healthy snacks and make sandwiches. Or if that isn`t a good option, grab some ready to go healthy choices. (Mozzarella sandwich,Fruit Salad or sushi?) Local park is a great option and lets your pooch be out too.
Make a meal! Breakfast: Put some play in your day; make an artistic and positive statement with what you have! Lunch: You must know her/ his favorite food – go where you can have it! Dinner; fake it until you make it! No matter your cooking skills; go with idea that you are master chef of the night! There is nothing more cozy and sexy in same time as cooking for beloved. Put that music on, light those candles! Don`t forget that timer while you dance around love birds!
Sweet Nothings: Note with coffee! Slip a sticky note in a book, briefcase. Shoot a naughty email or text message. More kisses and hugs. Whatever it takes, to make them feel Wanted,Loved and Cared for!
Make something: DIY is a front runner! Check out how to make paper roses, bracelet or even do a painting! Whatever it takes, to be 100% You not made in China!
Bouquet and Chocolate are nice… BUT! What about instead of what will die in few days get something that will last longer? Get those pretty bush roses in containers! Some you can keep the way they are and some you can transplant in the garden to remind always of your passion. Instead of chocolates, get that awesome cheesecake or bake muffins! Or check out BevMo for latest wine and imported brews for selective taste buds! She/He will be happy that you remembered their favorite kind or had a courage to suggest something new and special from that kind! Dare and go out of the box!
Movie time! Its at least 2 hour quality snuggle time. Let your guard down and let it be romantic and cheesy! Get that “Notebook”, “The Vow”, “P.S I love you” from Redbox or Netflix! Ice cream buckets, blankets and throw those shoes off! Get comfortable and enjoy! Or take her to one of newest chick flicks? Happy wife- happy life! You will see gratitude glow and believe me, not only that for such “unselfish” move.
Conversation. Actually whatever it is, take that time out of your day, stop talking about problems, work and enjoy each others company! Its that simple! Sit down and talk. Not about world problems, budget cuts or politics. Spontaneously learn about each other, with random questions! Put yourself at ease, relax and enjoy the company of a person you hold dear.
Not a Couple day? No Problem!
Friends! Get that girls/ boys night in or out going! Don`t be sad that you don`t have somebody close right now! Have a good time, with people that appreciate and love you for who you are! Have a blast!
Don`t even dare to get depressed! Get that movie, get your favorite food, go to that concert, invite a friend over, do that long distance call, have a manicure/ pedicure, dye those hair. Remember; To be LOVED by yourself is the first rule to have any capability to love other! On the other hand, do you know how many people are actually stuck in relationships because they don`t want to be alone? Tons! So don`t be sorry for not having somebody right now as many people out there hate their partners and aren`t happy at all!
Funny thing,that I heard today was “Valentines day is for men who need to make up for what they don`t deliver through whole year!” Keep in mind -to not be like that,as that indicates how actually important is the other person for you! You might say you aren`t vocal enough or don`t show feeling easily, but how in the world can the other know; how they make you feel and why at first place you are together! Show your affection on daily basis, not only on calendar dates.
