Some people in this world roll their eyes at a red rose on Valentine’s Day. Then some never tire of the roses, the jewelry, the candles, the music, and every other entity that makes up this day. Such romantics are the ones keeping Valentine’s Day going even after all this time, and if your partner is one of them, then it would be wrong to disappoint them with sad-looking flowers and a regular dinner.
Outrages, over-the-top romantic gestures are the way to go to satisfy the ultimate romantics in your life. Even with the pandemic, there are plenty of creative ways to indulge your partner’s romantic tendencies. The following are five great ways you can celebrate an unforgettable Valentine’s Day.
The house-bound date
You may not be ready to venture outside because of the pandemic, but you can still go big on Valentine’s Day. Use your bedroom as the main room for romance and fill it up with flowers, flower petals, and candles. Remove whatever is unsightly or unnecessary, such as laundry, and make the bed look as clean as a hotel bed.
Once you set the mood in the room, then it’s time for dinner. Instead of preparing a full meal, why not serve drinks and desserts? A luxurious bourbon such as Eagle Rare Bourbon or your favorite wine paired with a range of stunning-looking desserts can make your dinner date feel more like an extravagance.
Try to stay locked in the room and keep your phones outside. Have your favorite music playing in the background, and avoid switching on the TV if you have one. This romantic bedroom date is designed to get you reminiscing and talking about your future hopes with excitement and no interruptions.
Read the love letters of famous people
If your partner loves reading, this is the romantic gesture to go for. Reading the love letters of famous people is an infectious way of falling in love with your partner. It’s easy to feel closer when you read the love declarations of the men and women who excel at writing.
You can find various love letters online or in books. Some of the most romantic letters include the love letter Johnny Cash wrote to June Carter Cash and the letter written by Frederick Wentworth in Jane Austen’s Persuasion.
Picnic under the stars
If you hope to get out of the house, but you’re not ready to be around people, then a picnic under the stars is the romantic gesture to go for. This date doesn’t need much to feel romantic. A blanket to sit on and a sky full of stars are enough to set the mood, but you can always take it to the next level.
You can bring your partner’s favorite food and drinks in a basket and a telescope if you have one to look more closely at the stars. If you don’t have the telescope, you can download SkyView—an app on your phone that explains the history of the stars you are looking at.
Remember to find a quiet spot, somewhere where you can feel like it’s just the two of you in the world, so you don’t get interrupted by a noisy crowd.
Recreate your first date
If your first date was unforgettable, why not recreate it for old time’s sake? This one needs some thought and planning. Go to the same places and do the same things. Ideally, eat the same food and listen to the same music. If you’re lucky, you may still have the same clothes, or at least, similar pieces that you can put on and make your partner wear for the ultimate throwback date.
Propose to your love
Although you shouldn’t propose to make a grand gesture, proposing on Valentine’s Day is the ultimate romantic gesture for a romance-addict. Your partner may have been waiting for this moment her entire life, so planning well is critical here. It’s essential to know about your partner’s dream proposal and dream engagement ring so you can try to match her expectations.
A great way of getting inside your partner’s head is by going through her Pinterest page if she has one. Pinterest is known for being the ultimate mood board for women. There, you may find pictures of engagement rings and other images that could inspire your proposal.
Even if you are married, this romantic gesture may still work for you. Why not use Valentine’s Day to re-propose to your partner? You could use the same engagement ring or get your partner a new one. During your proposal, you could talk about why you are proposing again and the reasons you would remarry your partner in a heartbeat. This is a grand gesture for a married couple and a way of reaffirming your love to your partner.
So there you have it, five ways to indulge your partner’s romantic notions in a way that will leave them grinning for days. There are only a few days left for Valentine’s Day, so if you’re planning a romantic gesture, you better get going.
