Take your time to prepare for Valentine’s Day. You may think you can’t think of anything new to do and that you can’t beat what you’ve managed to conjure up in the past but never fear, our top tips are here!


How about sending a Valentine’s Day card before the date?

What better way to show you’ve planned ahead! Nothing beats a physical card (we all love to keep romantic mementos) but there are also e-alternatives online if you prefer. A simple message, “Can’t wait to spend Valentine’s Day with you”, will go a long way. You can trust us on this one!


Schedule a delivery of flowers a few days before.

If you order flowers in advance, they will probably work out cheaper and it also means everyone can enjoy them a little longer. A surprise delivery will help build a sense of excitement for the day itself. It demonstrates that thoughtfulness is alive and well in your house. The money saved by ordering in advance means that you can put a bit more towards the Valentine’s Day entertainment.


If you really want to make your loved one’s heart melt, memorise a line from a love poem.

Recite a line from a love poem over dinner. If you think that’s a bit over the top, write it out and slip it into your significant other’s handbag or coat pocket so they discover it on the way to work. That will be sure to put a spring in their step and a smile on their face for the rest of the day! It could also contain an element of surprise, hinting that you have something special planned for the day itself. Again, it needn’t cost anything and just by thinking ahead, it shows how much you care.


Instead of spending a fortune on an over-priced restaurant on Valentine’s Day, you’ll get more value for money if you plan a trip away.

You’d be surprised at what bargains you can pick up by way of special Valentine’s Day offers. A few days in the country will allow you to enjoy more time together without commuting and it sure represents great value for money!


After a delicious meal together, why not suggest grabbing your coats and taking a romantic stroll to get a bit of fresh air to revitalise you both.

A gentle stroll after a big dinner doesn’t cost anything and can be very beneficial in more ways than one! Creating a romantic playlist in advance that you can play on your return will take a little time, but shows you’ve taken time to prepare for Valentine’s Day. Maybe have some more champagne chilling in the fridge for when you get home and then you can both really kick your shoes off and enjoy the rest of the night together.

Valentine’s day is a special day for lovers, so get ready to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. It’s guaranteed to go down a treat. Make sure to share this blog for anyone in need of a plan on this special occasion.
