Valentines Day Ideas For All
By Valerie Davis
Valentines Day is a very special holiday, yet it is one that many people dread more than anything. Valentines Day is about love and caring for one another and those who are alone often feel left out. There are some things that single people can do on Valentines Day to feel more loved and cherished and some things that they can do together to feel more accepted as the single person that they are. These are great because no one should be alone at this time of year.
If you are lucky enough to have a special someone this Valentines Day then you will need to find a great way to spend the day together with your loved one. You should choose something that you will both enjoy immensely. This is one day that should not be about sacrifice, it should be about being together and enjoying each other's company. If you spend the day doing something that you don't like then you are not going to be having much fun right?
Here are some great ideas to make use of with your partner this Valentines Day. Things that will help you to make the day as special as it should be for you both.
Start Valentines Day out right
Write your lover a love note. This will get the day going to a perfect start. If you live together put it on his or her pillow so it is the first thing they see when they wake up. Or perhaps serve it with a nice breakfast in bed. If you do not see each other in the mornings then have it delivered, perhaps with flowers. It does not have to be a long love note, just a few lines in the form of a poem, or not, just to let them know how you feel.
If you are not good at writing then you can try making a short list of your favorite things about the other person. Under each favorite thing you could have a short explanation of why you love that about them so much. This is always a hit and it is as sweet as all get out.
Make the gift interesting
If you want to give a more traditional gift that is fine, just make the delivery is unique. One of the best ideas is to set up a wonderful scavenger hunt for the gifts. You can put little clues around the house to help lead your partner to the special Valentines Day gifts. Or, you could tie a piece of string to each gift. This is a cute and amusing idea. If you have a few different gifts all the string will be funny and sweet!
Make dinner instead of going out
You could make your partner a special dinner in as opposed to going out for Valentines Day. This is a thoughtful and special way to spend the dinner portion of the evening. You may also want to make the dinner together. This can be a lot of fun and I am sure that you and your partner will have a load of laughs making the food. You can both make your favorite foods this way.
If you are of the singular variety this Valentines Day you still need to find something fun to do, this can be on your own or with some of your other single friends.
Here are some great Valentines Day ideas for singles:
Get out of the house on Valentines Day
You can go to a movie or a play and perhaps treat yourself to a decadent dinner at a restaurant that you would not normally splurge on. Go all the way and even order your favorite dessert. That is always a nice way to spend the evening.
Stay in this Valentines Day
My favorite thing to do is get a bunch of single friends together and have a party. You can have a chocolate party, or a wine party or any other neat things along these lines. You will have all kinds of fun toasting each other and chowing down on cheese and candy. A fondue is always fun and you can have cheese ones or chocolate ones.
It is a great idea to have each of your friends bring a different kind of wine, cheese and chocolate. This way you will have all kinds of great things to eat all night long.
