Why you need to plan Valentine’s Day right now

For many people, Valentine’s Day is the ultimate day for romance. For others, it is just another day and not a big deal but whether one likes it or not they can feel the love fever from far, this can only mean one thing – February the 14th is around the corner. The good thing about this year’s valentines is that it is going to be on a Saturday, which means people can enjoy themselves without worrying about going to work the following day.

Creating the perfect Valentine’s Day can be lofty, but it’s an achievable goal. The trick is to maneuver through all of the hype to find the things that will touch your partner’s heart or make your currently single soul joyful. If you are not sure what Valentine’s Day means to your spouse, you need to talk about it. Otherwise, your unspoken expectations will lead to huge disappointments.

Regardless of your past or current thoughts about Valentine’s Day, there are ways to make Valentine’s Day special. Remember that Valentine’s Day isn’t just about giving and receiving gifts or sending flowers. Valentine’s Day should be a time to reflect on and share your love for one another. Everyone does flowers and chocolate on Valentine’s Day, which may be appropriate for your partner’s gift depending on what they like and appreciate. But why not make your Valentines gift something a bit more unusual; special and mostly memorable for example one can say ‘I Love You’ in Different Languages, or can plan for an experience.

Any die-hard romantic will tell you a gift is crucial when planning the perfect Valentine’s Day, but there is more to success on this occasion than merely choosing the right present. One can plan for an experience as well and they will have to create a duo-whammy of romantic bliss that won’t be forgotten anytime soon. These maybe a moonlight stroll to stargaze, a night cuddled up on the couch watching romantic movies and memorising a famous love poem to recite over dinner.

To make this exciting and probably for the love to blossom, one can add an element of surprise, of course your partner is going to know that you have something planned for Valentine’s Day and that’s okay. Let them in on a portion of the day’s planned activities so they can plan in advance too so that there won’t be anything stopping the two of you from having fun.

But many relationship experts agree that a surprise here and there ensures a relationship full of passion and affection, so don’t tell your loved on every little detail quite yet. Saying “i love you” at the local radio station and dedicating a song on air or to plan a romantic getaway and share the news over dinner.

But the most important thing is to focus on your partner. Just because you love Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean your partner does, and by taking into account his or her preferences for the holiday, you’ll be making the day special in its own way. Therefore, if your loved one is not into the occasion, don’t make them sit through a night of candlelight. Likewise, if they go gaga over anything red with a heart on it well before Christmas is over, giving them a peck on the cheek as the pizza delivery person knocks on your door isn’t going to cut it either. Instead, try thinking of some creative ways to be romantic with your partner, and you’ll create the perfect Valentine’s Day for the both of you.

One important fact to note is that Valentine’s Day is not only for people in relationships or married people. Single people also can enjoy themselves on this day. If you feel sad because Valentine’s Day causes feelings of loneliness and reminds you that you’re “just” single, it might help to realise that there are plenty of other single people experiencing Valentine’s Day too. Think about all the marvellous benefits of being single, from not fighting over the TV remote control to being able to keep your living space as clean or as messy as you’d like. But on the day one can take their family for an outing, a movie or dinner out or they can go with their friends to parties since this year’s Valentines is on a Saturday.
