Make Valentine's Day Memorable: Massage, Sweet-Nothings And Other Romantic Ideas

Feb 14, 2008
Valentine's Day is fast approaching. For a lot of men, the day of hearts may seem a little bit overrated as the color red invades the surroundings and heart shapes float practically everywhere. But you can't stop this romantic day from being popular. After all, lovers all over the world patronize and partake in this tradition every year.

This may not be your favourite day but you know how much your wife or girlfriend loves this romantic time of the year so here are some great Valentine ideas for you to share with each other:

1. A romantic hot stone massage is one of the best gifts that you can give your special someone. First you have to study about this style of massage by reading online resources and books or getting short course training from a skilled therapist. Next, invest on hot stones and natural oils by visiting massage online stores. Create a romantic ambience by lighting up scented candles in your room and having a little wine toast or a romantic dinner before the session. (Just take note that after eating, it's important to let her rest for at least one hour before giving her the massage.) It's a sure thing that your loved one will appreciate not only the pleasurable massage but more importantly the efforts you have put into making the day very special for her.

2. Plan a romantic getaway. Surprise your sweetie with a plane ticket to her favourite vacation spot or to the place she's been dying to go to. The element of surprise is the key on making this romantic idea work. It would surely delight her upon knowing that you have planned something romantic for the two of you. If you already have kids, it's advisable to leave them to the care of a trusted relative or baby-sitter and to indulge on the vacation just by yourselves. Don't forget to plan the activities to do and sights to see so that you can make the most out of your Valentine getaway.

2. Make your own gift. Handmade gifts are adored by many people because of the effort put into it. Instead of showering her with a dozen of roses, why not give her a scrapbook with photos of your most memorable times together? Guys may not be fond of doing things like these but that just makes the whole thing even more thoughtful.

3. Take your sweetie to that movie she has been asking you to watch with her or to that concert of her favourite band.

4. A day at the beach is also a terrific way to spend Valentine's Day. Frolic on the sand, bask on the warmth of the sun while walking down the beach and reminiscing your best times together. A nice picnic with sumptuous food is also a nice addition to this day. When night time comes, lie down on the beach to end your day with some star gazing.

5. If your loved one is crazy about doing extremely exciting activities, plan something outrageous for the two of you this Valentine's Day by going skydiving, paragliding or bungee jumping together. Add a little romance to your extreme sport by giving her a kiss or screaming how much you love her before you go dive into the sky.

6. If you're both lazy to do anything and just want to spend this day to rest and relax without having to go through planning and preparation, it's also a great idea to just cuddle up on the couch and pop some romantic movies into your DVD player.

Even if you're not big on this day dedicated for romance and love, it's important to give meaning to the things your wife or girlfriend values. If she loves this day, make this Valentine's Day special for her by giving her a whole day she will never forget.
