Valentines Day is not too far away now. It’s crazy because the Holiday season seemed like it just ended. But don’t let that tarnish the idea behind Valentines Day. It’s very important, especially if you’re married.
It’s a day where you spoil and give your spouse undivided attention. Attention like that is really hard to come by these days. Part of that attention is a gift and there are many things you can do. Here are just a couple, very creative gift ideas.
Create an experience for you and your spouse. This can almost be a combination gift where you both help pay for it. It can be elaborate like a weekend getaway or something smaller. I opt for smaller where you become a tourist in your own town. Go see a show, then a romantic lunch. Then a rendezvous in a hotel room followed by a romantic dinner.
A memory is going to be harder to do because it usually has to be something big like a vacation. A memory is something that is an extreme experience. I would only do something like this if for some reason it’s a very special Valentines Day. But a good example would be getting engaged if you are not yet married. Maybe renew vows or something like that.
A tradition is something cherished, but it has to be started. So if you are going to take your spouse on a dinner or something like that, make a vow to return to the same place each year.
But to make this more powerful rather than just the same place, you have to bring something too. For example, you can each bring a small scrapbook of favorite memories from the last year.
Finally you can just bring out the luxury. Most typically, these are going to be things like jewelry and fine chocolates. But how about you step it up this year with some fine lingerie. Most men get their wives cheap looking stuff, but you can get pure silk lingerie.
You can also make a romantic night by buying a luxury dress and laying it out for your spouse to get into with instructions. Then keep leading her with messages and things like that.
As you can tell, all you have to do is use your imagination and you can really create a great Valentines Day. Make it special and bring back the luster to a wonderful Holiday.
