Roses are the traditional flower of love, however the colour of the flower refines the message further, for example Red for true love, Pink for devotion, and Orange for passion.

Dinner out and gifts not your style? Then bring romance into your home, this is a time to make your partner feel special and important, so make an effort. If morning is ‘your time’ try a yummy breakfast in bed, with flowers and a loving card or poem on beautiful paper. Alternatively, try an evening experience…create the mood with candles and beautiful flowers on the table; low lighting and soft music along with a delicious home cooked dinner. Turn off phones, emails and any form of Social Media. Cleaning up can wait till tomorrow, follow up dinner with a romantic movie together at home, or whatever…this evening is for Romance without interruption.

Homemade gifts show your love and are willing to make an effort. Give your love a selection of ‘promise coupons’ to use, either ‘at will’ or monthly for the rest of the year. The ‘promises’ can be anything you are willing to do for your partner…a massage; breakfast in bed; a scheduled date-night. Keep the mystery going by placing the coupons in envelopes marked for specific opening dates, to reveal the surprise? Set the mood by accompanying the first Valentine’s day envelope with flowers and something delicious that they will love.
8. Revisit places you love
Maybe Valentine’s Day is a time to relive some of your special moments together if you have been together for some time. Revisit places that have meaning for you, it could be the place where you first met, or where you went on your first date. Maybe a road trip to a winery or brewery that has happy memories. Consider finishing the day with a sunset cruise, or an evening picnic to watch the sun go down (be prepared and take a blanket) while you just enjoy some Romantic time together.
