Whether you’re reading this article a month before the most romantic day of the year, or you have just a few days until Valentine’s Day, we’ve got you covered.
In this article, you’ll find our best seven tips for a romantic Valentine’s Day.
Now, some of you may think you have to plan a big, expensive evening out, but we’ve got an even better plan for you for February 14. Create a romantic, vacation-like setting right in your own backyard. Let’s look at our favorite tips.
#1: Create a Special Invite
A few days before the date, create an invitation. You can buy a card at the store, do an online invite, or create your own handwritten invite.
However you choose, surprise your loved one with the invite, and you’ll already be one step ahead in creating a memorable evening.
#2: Create Ambiance
Now, it’s time to set the mood for your romantic Valentine’s Day. Think of all the romantic setting you’ve ever seen, either in person on in movies. Then, recreate it. Here are some suggestions:
- Set out candles around the hot tub and your outdoor area.
- Hang lights in the trees or from your pergola.
- Create a playlist of your favorite songs and be sure to include the song that means something to you and your partner.
- Use your hot tub lighting to create an extra romantic mood.
- Add some aromatherapy scents to the water.
- Set out a bathing suit, robe, and slippers inside the house for your partner so all they have to do is slip it on.
#3: Create the Menu
What will you serve on your romantic Valentine’s Day? Do you both have a favorite meal?
If you like to grill, consider whipping up your favorite recipes. Or, if you’d prefer, cook your meal inside. If you aren’t much of a cook or grill aficionado, you can always order take-out. If you go this route, set the meal out in your own dishes to make it a bit nicer.
Don’t forget dessert. Again, make it on your own or bring it in. Consider chocolate desserts accompanied by chocolate-covered strawberries. Or, if your date prefers, you can go another route as well. Be sure and add a dessert that means something to both of you.
#4: Create Your Drink Menu
You have multiple choices when it comes to drinks. Several options include wine, champagne, specialty waters, and hot chocolate.
Get creative with your choices and always remember hot tub safety.
#5: Create a Cozy Area
Set out some blankets and start your outdoor fire pit if you have one.
Final Thoughts on Your Romantic Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is always a great time to remember that the couple relationship needs nurturing on an ongoing basis. Take time to think about the others’ needs and try and meet them.
Remember, it’s the thought that counts, and your partner is sure to appreciate the work you did preparing the perfect date night.
Then, after February is long gone, don’t forget to do little things like this throughout the year to nurture your relationship. You don’t need a romantic Valentine’s Day to remind you of romance all year long!
