Break the routine
Do you have a guest room? Use it for a romantic setting: dimmed lights, scented candles, food platter and champagne. Changing rooms will add excitement to your evening. It’s like going to a hotel, without the expenses!
Of course, there are the classics: eating out (remember to make a reservation, as it’s a very busy night !), flowers (expect a big bill, prices go up on Valentine’s Day) and chocolate. Whether you want to go all out or limit your spending without putting a limit to your feelings, here are a few more suggestions for you.
Make a playlist of sensual songs that will incite you to get closer… Need ideas? We have a few song suggestions for you, all of which you can buy online (iTunes, Zik). Get ready for a romantic evening!

Stick Post-its with sweet words on them all around the house. On his toothbrush, on his car rearview mirror, in his wallets, etc. Need help? There are quite a few websites that can help you express your feelings!
Technology at the service of love!
Bombard your loved one with sweet emails or text messages. Have you a lot to say and want something different from the traditional card? You only need a few minutes to create your own blog and pour your heart out! You can easily limit the access to your blog, so your man will be the only one able to read your declarations of love.
Forget about the rest
Concentrate on your presence. Pay attention to him. No criticism, no interruptions; only loving looks and compliments! No talking about work, kids or family: it’s all about you two!
Kiss each other! Have a 15-minute kissing marathon! What a nice way to express your love.
Write down everything you like about your partner on a pretty piece of paper, roll it up and tie it with a red ribbon. Write absolutely everything that you can think of (no censorship!) and give it to your lover.
Offer him a box of his favourite chocolates and personalize it. Under each chocolate, put a a sweet word, a wish or a compliment.
If you can’t afford a night of passion, it’s still possible to make bedtime a fun time! Tuck your sweetheart in, kiss him on the eyes, give him a relaxing massage and whisper in his ear to declare your love!
Turn off the lights and television. Look at the sky through the window or go for a romantic walk under the stars. Hold hands and let the silence carry you.
Remember that expressing your love should not be limitied to Valentine’s Day. Make it a regular event!
