Go out for a Date:
So if you do not want to make it at home or do not have any expense problem or want to make it in a changed atmosphere go out and dine. Why only dine you can do a lot more stuff out side like movies, play your favorite sport, trying new cuisine, going to a disco . a night romantic party, a bit of alcohol, a cake surprise, a long drive, a musical evening on the road or lake side, view sunset or sunrise together on the beach, present a surprise full of flowers and bouquets, go for a bike ride, book a hotel room for a romantic night, and lots more list is endless!
First and foremost you need to consider your loved one's preferences. Do they adore upscale and luxury cuisine? Or they are happy with the simple and romantic dining? Are they obsessed over sports, music, literature, or any other topic? Settle on one or two areas of interest that you know your date loves, and then start from there it self to give your day a perfect kick.
Focus on the food. As food has remain the most important part of any occation than for this day too food is the main focus! Obviously the food should be of the preference of you both or just of your date! Be sure to work around any food allergies or dietary restrictions. Here's a few different options for dining:
Try something different in taste: Just try! Do not order in full as it may waste your money if you don’t like it!
Make it from your home: you can also cook your favorite dish and make your date taste you’re cooking!
Bake! Go to a bakery shop and buy a cake and cookies to start the day with cutting it!
Go for pure veg/non veg: yes you can go for only vegetarian or purely non-vegetarian cooking if your partner likes it
Set the mood in a romantic one. Whether you're going out or staying in, you can do a few things to establish a romantic ambiance and put your date in a good mood. Dress up like a gentleman/beautiful lady you must take a bit extra care for your appearance. Speak in gentle, loving tones. Hold your date, gaze and sit or stand close to him or her if you are comfortable in coming close and are use to all this then you must go for further steps
Arrange a gift. A Valentine's Day gift doesn't have to be expensive or huge. Go on only with the traditional gift of flowers on Valentine's Day. Also stuffed animals are popular or a card with a handwritten message inside, a self made gift is the most precious and beautiful one! Try it
A miniature rose plant is also a great idea, if he/she likes reading gift a novel with red ribbon around it, or a poem written by you, a photo collage of the two of you, etc.
The element of surprise. Try to give a surprise! Just by telling that you will be busy on the day (14 feb) and you suddenly come up in a car and arrange all the things up! Would be a great idea, or Your date might know you have something planned for Valentine's Day, but don't tell them everything you're doing. Surprise them with flowers at work early in the day and plan!
Do not forget to tell your loved one why they are so special to you. Gifts! Food! Dress up! All are at one side and expressing by your words is at another! So express it that how much you care how much you want him/her by your actions your gesture your behavior your attitude! As this day comes once in the year! And the first valentine is the most memorable one! So do as much as you want! Do not keep any ting for other days!
