Spice Up Valentine's Day - 11 Tips to Make Valentine's Day Extra Special

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it’s time to think about ways to celebrate love and happiness with your partner. Whether you’ve been together 4 months, 4 years, or 40 years, there is always something to celebrate.

Valentine’s Day is an exciting reminder of where you started, where you are today, and where you are headed as a couple. Growing more and more in love sometimes takes a bit of input.

It may be hard to feel the spark with the stress of everyday life, but with a few gift ideas, you can remember those sparkling days when you first met.

Love is a verb, an action word, so get started with a plan of action today! Don’t leave it until the last minute.

1. Plan something out of the ordinary

Are you bogged down by work, chores, kids, or family without much couple time? Find a cool concert, show, or event, and buy tickets. The date doesn’t have to be on Valentine’s Day, but it would be best to find a date within a few weeks of February 14th.

Or, book a mini-vacation. Look for a romantic B&B near home that may offer extras such as a bottle of bubbly or a special celebration cake.

2. Connection is key

Whatever you choose, make it about your connection with your partner. A few focused hours at a restaurant can be just what you need to feel the romance again. Put those smartphones away and talk to each other!

3. Do something

Maybe you’re not a “holiday” couple and prefer to be low-key. A little something can still go a long way. Consider a small demonstration of appreciation, such as chocolate, going to a movie, or snuggling on the couch.

4. Try a little lingerie or lotion

Depending on how long you’ve been together, you might feel like you are stuck in a bit of a rut.

Use the excuse of a holiday to try something new. Surprise your partner with lotion, oil, or a simple piece of Valentine's lingerie. Or maybe introduce a toy to the mix for some extra fun. It’s vital to any relationship to mix it up, especially after several years together.

5. Celebrate with other couples

This is a less traditional way to celebrate but can reinforce the reasons you are with your partner. Choose another couple that is a good match, where you are all genuine friends. The interaction in a small group can lead to positive thoughts or a new appreciation for your partner.

6. Involve the whole family

Teach your children the importance of a solid relationship by making cards for each member of the family. Try enjoying a special family meal together, either in a restaurant or at home.

Making food in heart shapes, spelling “I love you” with veggies or fruits can be a creative way to get the kids involved, and it teaches them something about romance. Save the spicy stuff for after they go to bed!

7. Organize a scavenger hunt

Another family fun idea, or one for just the two of you with sexy clues. There is plenty of inspiration online to help you plan something that surprises, teases, and excites your partner.

It can be done anywhere, in the home, or at a workplace, or maybe a favorite area of town. The possibilities are endless!

8. Prep your bedroom for love

How many times do you survey your bedroom and see piles of laundry, clutter, and general messiness? This Valentine’s Day, give your partner the gift of an inviting bedroom that is ready for a romantic night in.

Think about soft sheets, mood lighting, a romantic playlist, a box of extras by the bed, and a sexy scented candle.

9. The element of surprise is often appreciated

A fun gift, experience, or date night will bring a smile to anyone’s face. Mix it up by arranging a surprise instead of something that your partner knows about.

Pick them up unexpectedly at work. Arrange for a babysitter but don’t say why. Have them meet you somewhere but don't reveal what you will be doing.

Enlist a friend to help with arrangements, so your other half really won’t be expecting whatever you have planned.

A note of caution, however: know your partner. Some people do not like surprises as much as others!

10. Simple can be special

While a big gesture may gain more attention, a simple act of kindness and thoughtfulness can be appreciated just as much or more. Think of what your partner truly values. Is it undivided attention, time spent together, a home-cooked meal?

Whether you’re on a budget or can travel at a moment’s notice, the best gift is one that is thoughtful and personal.
