A girl’s favorite time of the year is upon us. Well, next to Mothers Day. There’s always still a reason to celebrate Mothers Day, but for now, I’m talking about Valentines Day. We are less than a week away from the day that celebrates the love that people have for their significant other, spouse, mate, partner, kids, and other special people in their life. However, for couples, it’s where cupid plays a part. It’s the day when Cupid bares himself, “pulls back his bow and let’s his arrow go, straight to, your lovers heart”
Have you even thought about the hints that you need to drop, in order to bring him close to an idea of what you’d like to have? How about dropping a catalog on the kitchen counter, or the drivers seat of his car, or maybe even on his office desk at home or with his secretary at work. It’s just an idea of course. There are so many catalogue and online stores that are at your fingertips, where you can find some really nice items, such as: Jewelry, Home –Décor, Wine, Chocolate, Flowers and creative arrangements with an assortment of ideas, which incorporate money, into bouquets, chocolate into bouquets and even fruit.
Should you choose any of those items that will need to be ordered and delivered, keep in mind the time from now and then, that you have to do so. This is a florist’s busiest time of the year and it’s also the time that local grocery stores are talking orders for you to just pick up on Valentine’s Day. Here are three other ideas to add onto your order.
3 things that are sure to get the fire back into your valentine on Valentine’s Day
- Staycation: Staycations are so under-rated, when they really are the best things that can happen to a couple. They are a local means to a getaway, which means you are still in town should there be an emergency that you really can’t be excused from. They are the less expensive alternative to traveling to a destination. You save on the flight and transportation that you would have otherwise used if you traveled to another state or out of the country. They provide the rest and leisure that you need to get back to. They are quaint and intimate. They provide an opportunity to have some Me-Time and Us-Time, re-establishing the bond with your mate, through communication and intimacy. It’s a chance to be alone with your spouse/mate away from the office, the kids, the constant noise of having a family and you really get to let down your hair and forget that you’re only 20 minutes away from the house. It’s your all in one, access to a private place with a change of scenery.
- Couples massage: This is something that can be arranged while on the staycation. Many of the resort styles hotels feature an amenity deck, or space that concentrates on the needs of their guest, such as: restaurants, bars, a cafeteria, a pool, a sauna, a business center, a gift stop, nail shop… and most importantly, a Spa. Schedule a private couples massage with you and your valentines, as a reward. Show how much they are appreciated. When you are in a relaxed state of mind, you think a lot clearer and you’re overall health improves. It’s sexy, it’s romantic, it’s thoughtful, and it’s peaceful and tranquil. It’s a moment to relax your partner, in preparation for the evening ahead.
- Date night on the staycation: Go on a date while you’re on your staycation with your mate. As easy as it is to stay in the room for the entire night or day, whichever and for however long you’ve decided to stay, it’s much more worth it to enjoy the other amenities that are at the hotel. It’s really nice to dress up in the little red dress and take on the town without a care in the world for just a moment. Go out for dinner or ice cream. Catch a movie, walk in the park, stroll along the beach. You may decide on dinner at the hotel, where you choose to order-in, and stay in and indulge in, In-Room dining. However, those hotel in-room dinning costs add up fast. It’s just something to think about. Going out, may make it a lot more cost-efficient. Plus, if you take her out of the room, you leave time for that wonderful assortment of fruit and chocolate to be delivered to the room. She will walk in and thank you for it later.
