With time marching into February, the loving eyes are now all set on Valentine’s Day, the day of love. A lot will happen on that day. The day brings a promise of a fresh start, of a bond in which couples would wish to be locked forever. Some would express their feelings. Some would renew their vows. Some would say ‘I do’, to be in an embrace that is endless and pure like gold wedding rings.
The day translates how much you wish to be there with your partner. But if you are married then it has some tricks. If your moves go right, then they will be remembered for long. And definitely, it will shower you with perks. Often couples complain about the routines of being together. You can break the spell. If you follow the crowded track, the day may turn out okay. But don’t expect perks there.
A little off the track would spice up things. It does not matter whether you are married or planning your days together. Here are some ideas that you can always explore.
- How about stealing some time off from the bustling city?
It is not just who is planning a great day for your love. A lot are thinking along the same line. The drawbacks would be overcrowded parks, restaurants, and other tourist spots. You would not find a single spot for your ‘us time’. Put on your travel shoes and pack your bags for a day to some exotic locations. It may be the seaside or the mountain. Or some virgin beach where the waves would dance at your feet. Sounds fun? If your partner has the bug for thrill why don’t you skydive together? Or, trek in the mountain? The silence would sing along your throbbing hearts.
But do plan well. If things go wrong, perks would make way for pangs.
- Your love like food? Voilà!
A fancy restaurant is always a safe option. But their Michelin stars lack your loving touch. So don the apron and get your hands on a good recipe book. Or ask Alexa or Siri to guide you. Yes I know, it is Friday and you are tired after the week’s work. But sometimes switching roles is like the sparkling fizzle of the wine. It gives the spirit, ‘spirit’. Just be sure about what she loves. Later, set the tables with some candles. And definitely, some good romantic music. At times, it is truly the food of love.
- Woo her again.
She loves you for your charm. Then why not cast that spell again? Think of every possible way that you can make her fall in love with you again, from the mighty to the minutest. It can be your eyes to find her smile as the warm breeze or it can be your six-pack. Well, in the second case, you have to work hard for next year’s Valentine’s Day.
For ladies, you can try this as well. Just this time you can woo him instead of being wooed.
- Ring the Bell.
Are you planning to propose to her or him on that day? Then you have to find a ring. You may go for the platinum or diamond-studded ones. But gold wedding rings are also good. Simple, yet sophisticated in many ways. You have to find a unique spot. The place can be somewhere you two have a lot of memories. Just make sure that your love gets your full attention and not the cacophony of the day.
- Trade the tradition for a new one.
You don’t have to follow all the rules. You two have your own world to spend a lifetime. Then why don’t you set some new rules? Breakfast in bed kind of a tradition is well-known? Why don’t you give it your own twist? Like getting that in some exotic place every year. Or, write a new vow every year. How about planning a getaway together? Maybe, a bike trip to the mountains? Looking forward to it as a ritual would bring you closer.
- Forget cards
No one can express your love for your partner better than you. Don’t buy one when you can make one. It can be a pocketbook with pages full of your loving memories. Or a book with dreams that you have. All it needs is a personal touch.
You just have to spend some time to come up with the right way to make your partner feel special. The effort is worth the delight at the end of the day. Taking a step out of the box would make him or her feel precious. And your love definitely deserves that or you would not have loved him or her so much.
