Valentine’s Day ideas 

Valentine’s Day ideas, say what now? Christmas ain’t even cold in the ground and I am sprouting Valentine’s Day ideas!! But in blogger world everyone knows; there is no such thing as being too early to prepare. Have been blogging for almost 4 years and have seen Christmas ads in July. The only late being advertised celebration is Valentine’s Day since we need to wait until after New Year to advertise.

I was sat at home minding own business when I read on social media about what people are expecting this Valentine’s Day. One girl said she was hoping for an engagement ring 💍{a girl to dream right}? I mean if that’s what both parties want then why not but if it’s just one side thinking about it, ah well. Last year I put together a Valentine’s Day Wishlist, then I had a reason to celebrate. This year though I won’t be celebrating I thought it would be fun to put some Valentine’s Day Ideas together.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

I love Valentine’s Day but I am also not one to go all out about it, because I feel love is everyday not just one day. It is always nice to see all the ads on TV most unnecessary and some unrealistic but it is still nice to see them. The sad part it too many are over commercialised and lose the true value of what most of us consider Valentine’s Day to be. The ideas I am sharing below are some that I have done/received before so I thought I give someone some ideas.

Dinner Date.

One of the most overused but fun idea during Valentine’s Day is to have a dinner date, now you can go out or cook at home. I feel cooking at home is much more romantic and most cost-effective but I can appreciate the need to go out. Not all mammas are able to have some free time to themselves so date night is the perfect excuse.

Jewellery Gifts

Over 60% pf he time, the most received gifts during this ‘celebration’ is jewellery. As someone who’s a sucker for jewellery I can never complain but sometimes it can become to dull and meaning less. However you can take a different path and check out  Berganza antique jewellery, for a unique and gorgeous gift for your love. Not men like to wear jewellery so you could pick up some cufflinks or personalise a watch with a sweet message.

Flowers 

Flowers are not just for women and they do not have to be bouquets all the time. Men do like flowers too, some like plants so they can look after them others are ok with flowers that wont die easily. I love having flowers in my home though they tend to die after a week so I now get orchids.

Make time for each other 

This might be totally easy for me to say since I am newly single, but looking back I think making time for each other is very important. Whether you’re a SAHM or office worker, I think it’s important to allocate sometime to be with each other. Remind each other of the time before the kids, the time before the careers or the honeymoon phase. Whenever or wherever you can, make the time for each other and not just on Valentine’s Day but always.

And there you have it, my Valentine’s Day ideas. If you’re planning to celebrate with your love, I hope these ideas help and if not then have fun anyway.

    I don’t like to get overly lavish gifts for Valentines Day. I’d rather get surprised with loveliness throughout the year although I do love a romantic home cooked meal

    • I can relate to that for sure

  • La French Connection

    I never celebrate Valentine’s day, so for me it’s just a regular day. But I’m the least romantic girl you could meet ahah!
    Still, I hope you’ll enjoy your night very much!

    • I am one for celebrating myself so I am sure I will think of something

  • fashion-mommy

    I find Valentine’s Day to be a nightmare, overly busy restaurants with substandard service is a real problem. We tend to celebrate on a different weekend now.

    • We used to do that time when it wasn’t too crazy

  • Deborah Nicholas

    I love a quiet night in and hopefully hubby will cook something for me! Usually though i end up having to buy my own flowers and pay for a take away! oh well maybe next year! lol

    • Hahahaha girl I will be buying my own flowers this year and cooking for myself. Here is to hoping your hubby does it for you this year

  • I think there’s nothing better than staying in, cooking a meal on Valentines.

    • So true and it’s even more romantic

  • Wow I haven’t even thought of Valentines Day yet, I am still clearing up from Christmas lol x

    • Hahaha I know right, but you know in blogger world everything starts early

  • im not fond of valentines day. i prefer staying in and away from the busy crowds

    • I am the same, I don’t mind going for dinner a day or two after or before

  • This is the first time in a long time I’ll be celebrating with someone, but I’m not sure what we’ll do yet x

    • Awww how sweet, well whatever you guyz decide will be awesome

  • This is the very first year that I’ll be celebrating Valentines Day with someone and although I want the day to be special I don’t want to go too overboard. I’ll be a very happy bunny if I got flowers x

    • Awww I too would love some flowers even if I am single lol, might just buy some myself

  • GlamourGlitterGloss

    I am single and I will be spending Valentines weekend with my fellow single friends and having an anti Valentines Day of sorts. Hope you have a lovely time

  • Shannon Bryson

    I’ve actually finished my shopping for valentines day already, isn’t that crazy? Lovely list here, one year I made my partner a cake for VD!

    • For real? Oh wow like when did you start shopping, before Christmas?

  • Kiyshia Goche

    If Easter eggs are in shops then its definitely too late to start thinking about Valentines. I like how you cover different gift ideas from budget to splurge. thanks…might have to start thinking about preparing for it!

    • Aww thanks Kiyshia, it definitely feels late night talking about V day when Easter Eggs are already on display

  • We are on a budget for things like Valentines this year with baby on the way, but we will likely have a cosy date night at home with a movie and make a special dinner x

    • I think V day shouldn’t even be about eating out but just spending time together weather at home or not. Good luck with the baby

  • Laura

    I love receiving a special gift for valentines day as our anniversary is a couple of days after… a Chanel something something <3 xxx

    • Hahaha I love that, a chanel something something

  • Hannah Latoya Bond

    I’m not really one for Valentines day. I’ve also seen loads of Easter Eggs starting to appear

    • Oh wow I need to visit the stores and start getting easter eggs

  • Jodie Whitham

    Already seen easter eggs in shops, so have to agree it’s not too early. Also feel showing someone you love them shouldn’t be one day. I also believe valentine’s day should be about showing family members and friends you care. I sometimes feel if you say you dislike v day you sound like a bitter single, but never liked it much in a couple either. I do think it is a nice way to remind couples who have been together longer to make the effort. It’s easy to forget to do the nice romantic gestures when you’ve been together a long while! x

    • That is so true Jodie, whenever a single person says I dilike V Day people think you’re bitter lol.

  • Beautyqueenuk

    If Easter eggs are already in the shops then it is definitely not too early to be discussing Valentines Day x

    • For real? Easter Eggs are in stock now?? Oh wow
