It’s Valentine’s day…. Love is in the air and you know, that even the smallest gesture can melt your better half’s heart. You don’t need to spend a lot of money to express your love and appreciation for the one you love. Sometimes, the most memorable presents, are actually the ones that require some imagination and a little bit of thought.
“Being loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage…” – Lao Tzu
Five amazing S. Valentine’s presents for 2017
GO TRADITIONAL AND SURPRISE HER WITH FLOWERS
Flowers were my very first gift on Valentine’s day. And I know this is probably the most conventional of gifts, however, I truly believe some things are so special, they’ll never get out of fashion.
Why not order a beautiful bouquet of flowers and get them delivered to her place early in the morning when she’s just waking up? If you happen to be traveling around Australia with your sweetheart or if you’re an Australian resident, maybe you’d like to check out Flowers for Everyone. “Our flower delivery service guaranteed in the same day if ordered before 2pm”. If you wish so, add a little gift with it, like a bottle of wine so you can have a romantic dinner together.
SURPRISE HIM / HER WITH A SPECIAL VEGAN DINNER
You can either go out for dinner…. or you can forget about the world and simply stay home. Cook a romantic dinner together, and enjoy every moment of it! Put your favorite music on, and rock that kitchen with a delicious organic meal.
One of my most memorable Valentine’s day, was actually when my sweetheart and I decided to stay home and simply spent time together, cooking and dancing in the kitchen.
Simple Chinese wok, spicy Thai, Indian curries, or that forever favorite Italian? If you need some inspiration, check out my vegan recipe section for great ideas of foods of the world. And remember that bottle of wine you sent with the flowers from Flowers for everyone? Enjoy it together!
HAVE AN AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE TOGETHER
Imagine the two of you…laying side-by-side, relaxing from the worries of the world, in a warm room with the relaxing sounds of peaceful ocean waves, the aromatherapy of calming essential oils, and the nurturing of a customized therapeutic massage. It is the perfect environment to enjoy a special bonding session for couples, to indulge in the shared experience of peace and well-being. You don’t need to do anything except relax and enjoy!
GO FOR A MAGICAL SUNSET TOGETHER
Climb the highest point of your city or village for a magical sunset together. If you have a nice (and safe to climb!) roof top you can go to, surprise him /her with this unconventional spot. Bring some food and have a picnic together while you watch the sun kissing the sky goodbye.
If you’re traveling the world together, this is a great excuse to explore a new spot together.
Love makes the world go round. With the stress of daily life, we sometimes forget to show appreciation for the ones we truly care for. Taking time to express your feelings, sharing quality time and surprise the other with a little gift, can bring us closer together, make our love grow stronger.Read More
