We are all hopeless romantics at heart, waiting for a Prince Charming to sweep us off our feet, or to kiss Cinderella at the Ball. Valentine’s Day is one day a year where everything is about love and romance. We encourage you to take this opportunity and create a Valentine’s Day that is worth “ah-ing” over in the cinema. Your very own movie-worthy Valentine’s Day. Here are some ideas to make that happen:
Waking up to your loved one on Valentine’s morning is one of the most special feelings in the world, especially when they are handing you a delicious breakfast plate. Start the day relaxed, and warm next to each other. Feed each other, and then kiss each other.
Being surprised and showered with gifts is something that leaves you feeling giddy, without comparison. Wrap up a box of chocolates, put freshly cut flowers in a vase or sprinkle rose petals leading to the bed for an extra bit of romance.
Unfolding a letter with carefully handwritten words, that have been thought out and inspired by your partner is one of the sweetest gifts you could ask for. Find some nice paper, and a fineliner, and write out a special message. It’s pretty unforgettable.
Treat yourself to a luxury massage for you and your partner, or if you are feeling adventurous, grab some body oil and give a sensuous massage to each other at home. This is sure to get you feeling relaxed and excited for the night ahead.
Spoil your loved one to a candlelit dinner, over a delicious three course meal, to really make them feel appreciated. Include aphrodisiac foods in the menu to increase the sensual feel of the night. Check out this (blog post) to see what these stimulating foods are, and then have a look at our (menu) to plan your romantic evening.
Walk along the beach, or sit atop a rooftop, and watch the sun go down over some bubbly and soft kisses. There is nothing more movie-worthy than a magical kiss with a beautiful view.
After a romantic dinner date, go home and relax to a famous Valentine’s movie. Some of our favourites are: “When Harry Met Sally,” “Pretty Woman,” and “Crazy Stupid Love.” Grab a blanket, slip into something more comfortable and cuddle up.
