Oh Valentine’s day, my least favourite of them all. I’m usually a rather festive person – I love christmas, adore easter (
mostly for the milky chocolate eggs), but for some reason I just can’t get warm with Valentine’s day. I don’t know but to me it just seems kind of useless and artificial. Why would I need a special day to go out with my boyfriend? Duh, we do that all the time anyway :D But even though I personally do not like Valentine’s day that much I am aware that some of you might be fans of this weird holiday. So I’ve come up with some things that might be fitting for the good ol’ 14th of February.
Valentine’s date ideas ?
Now that I think of it I realized that me and the mister actually never had a real valentine’s dinner. Last year we were in Frankfurt and because we’re stupid, we completely forgot that it was the 14th of February and surprise, surprise didn’t even get a place at McDonald’s to eat. And the years before we didn’t care either. This year however we already reserved seats in a fancy restaurant because we learned from our mistakes and will be spending the day in Hamburg, eek exciting! Here are some other ideas for valentine’s dates:
- Book a table in that fancy restaurant you wanted to try for weeks
- Go to the cinema
- Why not have Valentine’s brunch?
- Arrange a date night in – order pizza and watch some movies
- Cook a delicious 4 course dinner with your beloved (we did that for new years and loved it!)
- Spend the night in a hotel, even if it isn’t that far from home
- Enjoy the day at the spa
Make someone happy
Valentine’s day is all about making your loved ones happy. So why not just make yourself happy? Buy some new shoes or that lovely purse you’ve been longing for all month. Enjoy some me time in the bathtub with some candles, special edition of course. Or simply order yourself some delicious pizza and forget about everyday stress for a couple of hours. And hell yeah, eat all the chocolate !
I honestly couldn’t care less about receiving gifts on valentine’s day. I’m more than happy when the mister takes me out for dinner. But then there’s all the sexy lingerie, the yummy chocolate and the special editions – how can I possibly resist that? I already set my eye on some really lovely things that I might or might not treat myself to for Valentine’s day. That’s why I wanted to share some of my favorites with you – aren’t they just SO pretty?
What do you think about Valentine’s day? And what do you think about my picks?
