A Valentine’s Day She’ll Remember
Valentine’s day is just around the corner and it’s tempting to repeat the celebration the same way, year after year. However, if you want to impress, avoid predictability. To captivate your audience, you’ll have to get personal. There is no one-size-fits-all perfect gift or memory you can create without considering interests.
Give a triple-decker gift by creating a memory, bestowing a keepsake, and telling her the reasons you love her.
- Stage a room to create ambiance. For instance, set up an outdoor movie theater, inside. Throw a blanket and comfy pillows on the floor and surround the picnic area with an embarrassing display of flowers and lit candles. Cover the ceiling with helium balloons or add lights to create a starry night. Provide a delicious picnic dinner and project a romantic movie onto a wall.
- Create a scavenger hunt that sends her on a journey to all her favorite places and ends at a romantic evening.
- Sweep her away to a romantic getaway.
- Take a hot air balloon ride.
- Give her (or him) a unique experience, such as flying in an old J-2 Cub, two-seater airplane.
- If you live in warm weather climate, do something outdoors. Go hiking or to the beach and set up a picnic basket or table for two, that you just happen to stumble upon.
- Create a music playlist with her in mind.
- Write a poem or compose a song.
- Write a love letter – like a Darcy-to-Elizabeth masterpiece.
“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
― Darcy, Pride And Prejudice
- Create a book, write on stones, or cut out heart-shaped pieces of paper and tell her the many reasons why you love her.
Most women love jewelry, especially from someone they love. To make the best impression, consider her taste. Heart jewelry is not always the best option.
- Carve a heart and initials into a tree branch or stump. You could also bring the branch inside and use it as a centerpiece.
