Valentine’s Day is but a week away so we hope you’ve got a plan. Just in case you were still searching for ideas, or aren’t sure how to spread the love on a work day we’ve rounded up a couple suggestions. From romantic gestures to cute gifts there’s an idea here that you can pull off last minute.
1) Serve breakfast in bed
There’s more than one way to enjoy a romantic bedroom on Feb 14th. When Valentine’s Day falls mid-week it can put a damper on your elaborate evening plans with work looming the next day. Make the most of your morning by serving up some breakfast in bed. It’s a simple gesture that makes your partner feel celebrated first thing so you remove the pressure of finding ways to be lovey-dovey throughout the day. You can always double up on the romantic plans later in the week when you have more free time.
2) A gift with personality
Chocolates and roses and Hallmark cards all make for lovely gifts, but they don’t show your significant other how much you know about them and how much you care. Think hard about something they could really use and give a gift with personality this love day.
Love to travel? Or simply love to sleep? If you have a partner that could use some shut-eye then a pure silk sleep mask is a luxe and romantic gift.
For the partner that seems to be constantly losing things there’s a tech-savvy answer. Tile Bluetooth trackers keep an eye on your essentials so you don’t have too. Fights over who last had the car keys will be a distant memory. Available even at the last minute here.
3) Write a love letter
There was a time when letter writing was the only communication in a courtship. Bring back the romance of the olden days by pouring your heart out on a page. We bet you’ll write something much better than any generic card. The sweet thing about this idea is your partner can hold onto it and look back whenever they want to feel your love. Perfect for long-distance couples as well.
4) Bake a sweet treat
Anyone can buy a cake but it takes a bit more effort and attention to make one. This one is especially impressive if baking is not your usual forte. Pick up a set of heart shape cookie cutters in MyDeal home and garden for an easy way to bake up some love. A piping kit wouldn’t go astray either if you wanted to complete the look.
5) Surprise them!
Since it’s a workday, why not stop in for a surprise visit? Take them out for lunch or a coffee at their favourite cafe. Or if you know they’ve been having a hectic day/week show them you care by bringing lunch and a kiss.
It may be a Hallmark holiday but that doesn't mean you can get away with not celebrating your signifcant other. Make them feel loved without letting on you made plans at the last-minute!
