Think you have to spend a lot of money to make your sweetheart feel special? Not so! if you are looking for something romantic on Valentine's Day, check out these ideas on how to pamper your sweetheart and make him or her feel truly special.
A fireplace picnic - It's too cold for an outdoor picnic, so why not have one indoors? Get a nice fleece blanket and lay it out in front of the fireplace. Put some romantic music on the stereo, serve strawberries or other fruit, and includes some champagne on ice. Include a romantic boardgame for something truly special.
Sweetheart's Spa Night - Get a hot bubble bath filled with rose petals ready for when your sweetie comes home from work. Have a box of chocolates to nibble on and a glass of champagne or wine by the side of the bathtub.
Get the bed ready while your sweetheart is in the bath and put some fresh, warm towels nearby. Light some scented candles and gather up some washcloths and other items including massage oil, moisturizers, foot rubs and so on, and give your sweetie a massage! Afterwards, enjoy your favorite take-out in bed while watching a romantic movie together.
Another favorite idea is a "red hot lovers gift basket" that you and your Valentine can enjoy. You can purchase one of these from the many specialty shops at the mall. If you choose to give a gift to your sweetheart, make it a romantic one!
Now that you set a romantic mood for your sweetheart, here are some tips to make Valentine's Day last all year long:
- The relationship - your partnership - with your sweetheart must be a mutually supportive one that encourages the dreams and visions held by the other person. Always let your partner know that you value his or her opinions, ideas and - especially - feelings.
- Don't downplay your partner's heartfelt emotions. Don't say "You shouldn't feel that way" to a heartfelt opinion. This is what your partner is feeling at a particular moment in time and it is their choice to feel that way. Listen with understanding. The best thing to say is "I understand how you feel." And if the situation calls for it, give him or her a hug!
- It's not always easy to pay attention to "the little things." It takes effort and practice, and yet it is one of the most important parts of a healthy and successful relationship. It is the little things that count, and if they're left to simmer without attention, just like a pot on the stove, they can boil over into a major conflict.
Finally, and most important of all, love! Show your partner that he or she is special every day of the year!
