Wondering how you should spend your Valentine’s Day this year? Look no further: Cupid has you covered. Read along to find out how to ask someone to be your valentine, what to get your valentine and what to do on Feb. 14.
The start of the Valentine’s Day festivities should always be the way you ask someone to be your valentine. The classic way of asking someone to be your valentine is with candy and flowers. Conversation hearts are a great way to ask someone with a few words.
Something from the heart, like a handwritten card or note is sure to be a pleaser. Sentimental is always the heart of Valentine’s Day. If you would like to continue with the creative theme, homemade or store-bought (Cupid doesn’t judge) cupcakes with a hand-frosted “be mine” is sure to excite.
Selecting a gift for your valentine can be a tricky task. Getting your valentine something you know they really enjoy is the best way to go. A favorite restaurant gift card or their favorite drink will put a smile on their face.
If you would like to dive deeper, getting an activity for you to do together on Feb. 14, like Legos or a puzzle, is also another great gift.
Flowers are a great way to show your blooming love. Bonus points if you can bring them their favorite flower. Make sure they also have a vase to store the flowers in! Better yet, go the extra mile by arranging them for your sweetheart, and even keeping a flower for yourself so you know when it’s time to replace them.
While Valentine’s Day dates are typically spent in a restaurant sharing a heart shaped pizza, there is an array of things still to do. Dinner is a great way to enjoy company, but this does not have to be limited to going out. Cooking dinner with your valentine can be a bonding experience.
If going out is more your style, the movies are a great way to enjoy time together with less conversation. Along with this, a coffee or ice cream date can be another way to get out. Staying in and reading is another conversation-less date idea for Feb. 14.
Another way to get out on Valentine’s Day is to share the love by volunteering together. There are plenty of places that would appreciate two helpers on this day. Taking the day to go shopping is another way to be together.
Overall, Valentine’s Day is a day full of love. And with Cupid’s guide, you are sure to have a great Feb. 14 this year. Stay tuned for a friend-centered guide for Galentine’s Day next week!
