Our mothers are really something damn special. For a lot…
Valentine’s Day, the national day allocated specifically to remind us that there are over 7 billion people in the world and some of us are still alone, is just around the corner. And we’re here to help you find cute Valentine’s Day ideas for your partner.
So whatever stage you are at in your relationship, we’ve looked high and low on the inter-webs and beyond to come up with some cool Valentine’s Day ideas this year. And not only that, these ideas won’t cost you a fortune!
Ah, the honeymoon stage. It’s the best. Your heart skips a beat every time you see each other and you are at the point where you still find each other’s habits and idiosyncrasies endearing instead of what they really are- annoying as all hell.
Normally this stage is pretty early in the relationship where you still want to spend every second together. So why not take advantage of this? Instead of outlaying money on flowers, chocolates or a teddy bear, why not organize an activity together instead? Do something fun and revisit your youth by building a fort out of blankets, having a nerf gun war or playing hide and seek in the park. Or if you want to spend a little bit of money rock up to your nearest airport. Be spontaneous! Book the cheapest flight going wherever and stay the weekend.
A couple of years into the relationship
We’re not implying that you are in any way less in love than the initial stages of a relationship. However, the longer we are in a relationship life and other distractions tend to get in the way. Sometimes after the honeymoon period, we can accidentally get in the habit of taking each other for granted.
Instead of spending a lot of money this Valentine’s day, why not put together something that reminds your partner that you still think they are a bit of all-right?
Hide heart-shaped post-it notes with your favorite qualities of them in their lunch or book they are reading or in their jacket pocket. Create a jar of notes starting with I Love You Because… Or pre-plan 12 dates; once a month for the rest of the year and make sure you go on them.
Valentine’s Day Ideas for Family with Kids
Having a family is hard work. Creating miniature versions of yourself is the best thing you’ll ever achieve in life, but it’s also challenging, stressful and time-consuming. And it leaves very little time for romance in your relationship.
So this Valentine’s Day, why not declare the day a child-free zone, no matter who you have to pay, bribe or blackmail. Get someone to mind the kids for the day and ban all conversation that involves them. Spend the day being just a couple again.
Married For Years and Then Some
If you’ve been married for years and then some, we’re sure you’ve come up with some cracking Valentine’s Day ideas for gifts over the years, or at least, be doing something right to keep the romance alive. However, if you have gotten a little complacent after all this time why not do something really special this year for your partner?
Why not take your partner back to the restaurant you went to on your very first date, if it’s still around? Or turn the first photo you ever took together into a beautiful canvas print. It’s the perfect affordable gift for your significant other. Purchase one today here!
