This February, as temperatures plunge (at lest here in the UK), it's time to remember those we love in order to warm our hearts at least a little.
Here's a rundown of ideas for Valentine's Day that can make it all the more memorable.
Here at Vanacci, we've introduced our range of symbols to say more with our jewellery. A heart can now be added to pendants, bracelets and wallets to make that statement of love all the more impressive. A custom message can also be added to make your gift truly special. Don't forget that our jewellery can be infused with perfume, which, when combined with your engraving choices, makes it totally unique.
Sounds obvious, right? Well, make sure it's booked in good time. Valentine's Day is one of the busiest of the year for dinner reservations. Perhaps where you go is special to the two of you, perhaps it's really fancy, perhaps it's simple and honest. It doesn't matter as long as you're both there enjoying each other's company. If you can't get the reservation at the place you wanted, hit Trip Advisor and see what hidden gems you can visit. You might even find a new favourite spot.
Alternatively, a home-cooked meal can really add to the atmosphere. If you're looking for ideas for a new dish to try or how to make something from scratch, YouTube has a wealth of instructional videos that can guide you all the way from 00 flour to al dente pasta aglio olio. Binging with Babish is a great channel for trying out meals from movies and TV shows, with instructions on how to make each dish. Some may actually require two people to accomplish so it's a great way for the both of you to spend the evening together. Making fresh pasta is fun and takes a lot less time than you'd probably think.
If it's feasible, why not take the weekend away instead of focussing on Valentine's Day as a single event? As this year Valentine's Day falls on a Thursday, a long weekend starting Thursday night isn't out of the question. Check out Airbnb and see what's available nearby for a quick getaway trip.
Make your own gift
This is a wide-ranging field but if you can figure out what your other half likes, why not try and make it? Most towns and cities have local artisans offering workshops and courses, ranging from pottery to woodworking, arts and crafts to sewing. Some of these activities may even be appropriate for two people to engage in, perhaps making something that the two of you can use or appreciate. Even if you're not particularly creative or artistically-minded, it's a fair assumption that your loved one will appreciate the effort you've gone to to make something for them.
Wine tasting is a popular activity for Valentine's Day, so why not give it a try? Cooking classes and workshops are also fun things to do with that person you share your life with. Learning to make a new dish or tuning up your cooking skills will have a positive long-term impact on the tow of you and a shared positive experience is worth its weight in gold. Check out what your area has to offer on Groupon to see if you can also get a bargain.
