Love is in the air and we can feel it! The shops are filling up with all things red and heart shaped, and the florists are going out of their way to prepare the most beautiful bouquets for the special day; there’s nothing like a bit of romance to brighten up your day.
Whilst we shouldn’t use Valentine’s Day as the only day to show our appreciation to our loved ones, it’s the perfect opportunity to express your undying love for your partner or crush.
If you are looking to steal your Valentine’s heart this February, take a look at our top five tips to swoop them off their feet.
Cook their favourite meal
The way to a man’s heart is through their stomach, and surprisingly, women are the same too! Instead of getting flustered over booking a table at some cramped restaurant with a set meal, try cooking their favourtie meal from scratch, pour a glass of wine and dine for 2.
Have a cosy night in
Invite your crush round, stock up on their favourite snacks and let them choose a movie for you both to watch. Set the mood by dimming the lights, lighting some tealights and snuggling under a blanket together.
Go for spontaneous drive
Hop into your car with your Valentine and take a left turn followed by a right turn and keep repeating the pattern until you end up somewhere fun. You’ll have a great laugh along the way!
The whole baking process is always a fun one and the end result is usually even better! Throw some competition into the mix by baking and decorating a cake each and see which one turns out the best. Don’t worry if things get a little messy, it’s all part of the fun!
Go For a Picnic
Pack up some Valentine-themed treats such as jammy dodgers, strawberries and wine and go for a picnic in a lovely place out in the countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
