Sometimes we are in such a fast paced lifestyle that we often do not get time to plan special surprises for our partner. It is definitely not easy to latch yourself to mind blowing surprise plans all the time and I feel it is enervating not all the time but at least when you are struck with work and too many other things. So here are 5 unique and quick ways to celebrate your valentine's day.
1. Book a Table at a nearby restaurant for Two :
This is very cliche and may sound not different at all , but in the pursuit of making it too special with limited time we might miss out the fact that simple things are sometimes the happiest and memorable ones. So , get on to yelp and find a fancy romantic restaurant , book a table , along with which pop a Champagne , have good food , nice little chat and pour your heart on him.
2. An open air Movie plan :
This is something that we only get to see in movies , but that is not true. These things happen in real life too. Google if you have any open air movie events near by where you can sit in your car ( or just jump on a grass with a throw if its warm enough) , with some food and non alcoholic beverages (coz you have to drive back home safe). Enjoy the experience of watching a movie under the sky and stars.
3.Recreate your first date :
Remember why and how you fell in love with each other. Recreate the whole scene within the surroundings , get him a nice shirt and slip into a similar dress in which he first saw you or remembers the most. These do refresh your memories breaking all the fatigue or routines that we might have got used to and you can breathe in fresh love and warmth from your partner.
4. Special Candle light dinner at home :
Nothing can beat the special home cooked meal & dessert experience of course with special ambiance and some candle light. This is one of my favorite ways to surprise mine. It comes in handy when you really do not want to go anywhere but still do not want to miss that surprise element of celebration in love. Gather some scented candles , tea lights and a special dessert recipe for the celebration.
5. Get a Room:
What I mean is - Yes , when celebrating at home feels boring and cliche , you should browse for nice local resorts with special amenities and book for yourselves (especially if you do not want to drive long). When the atmosphere changes , everything changes , it lightens up stress and affects your thought process, brings you closer to him/her by breaking the everyday cycle of work pressures and more. It is often much required to take a break from the routine.
Of course , I have not spoken about Valentine's day gifts. But for me it is all about the experience , mindfulness and peace. You can always give each something that you want to , but primarily making each other feel special and loved is what is predominantly important on this special day of celebrating love.
