It’s that day of the year where love fills the air… So why not go the extra mile, and do something sweet for your lover this Valentine’s Day?
1. Post-It Notes
Try leaving sweet little notes in hidden places all over the house so that your loved one will be reminded of your love for them whenever they open a shoe cabinet, fridge or dresser! You can even write something which is relevant to the hiding place, like “Thank you for always making me such yummy dinners” in the fridge. No fanciful words, no long stories, just a sincere sentence from the bottom of your heart.
2. Breakfast in Bed
Yes, the weekends are really precious for all of you to catch up on our sleeping and peeling yourself off the bed early in the morning to prepare breakfast is really a huge challenge. But love is always a choice, if your partner knew that you specially woke up earlier just to prepare them a lovely breakfast, I’m sure the look on their face is more than enough as the reward for your hard work. You don’t have to whip up a full English breakfast if you don’t want to, just some toast, cereals and milk will do just fine.
3. Plan a Surprise Holiday
Try planning for a surprise vacay all on your own- choosing of location, booking of airtix, accommodation, taking leave off for your spouse if they’re working on their behalf, packing of the luggage etc. Preferably on a weekday, when they’re preparing for work, pull out the luggage, throw them their passport and say “Baby, we’re going for a holiday!” Now, that is something.

A full body massage after a hard day of work something is the best way to convey “I Love You”. Best thing is, this can be easily done so! No planning nor expenses required.
5. Words of Assurance
Sometimes, after being together with someone for a long period of time, it is very normal for us to take the other party for granted. The things which they do for us as something that they should. But honestly, no one is obliged to do anything for anybody, isn’t it? Try telling your partner how much you appreciate them and remember to name exact activities so they can feel recognized for their effort and hard work all this while!
6. Hi dear, the household chores is all done
Take a half-day off and help your partner to do finish the entire household chores that needs to be done! They will love it when they come back to a spick and span home with the groceries all stock up in the fridge.
7. Memory Lane, one step at a time
Do you remember where you guys first met? The first meal or movie? Or what you did at your wedding? Reminisce the little details about your own love story while being cuddled up in the comfort of your bed with a bottle of red wine by the bedside.
8. Sending a bouquet of flowers, just because.
Send a bouquet of flowers or any other gift which you think your partner will love, just because. No special occasions to celebrate, just to remind them of your love.
9. Hugs from behind
Hugs from behind, enough said.
10. Late night dates
Remember those late night dates you have had when you were dating? Relive those days by having an impromptu date night out and just do whatever you want! Go to the beach and enjoy the breeze maybe? Or go to that quirky little café which you always wanted to try.
