Valentine’s Day is the one day of the year that is solely dedicated to love and companionship. For many this day involves spoiling each other with flowers, cards, teddy bears and chocolates while others prefer to surprise each other with a small gift or a night out to the movies or dinner.
Think back to the beginning of a relationship where sparks flew, gazes longed and passion was ignited. What happened you must be thinking? Effort is the answer and too often people slip into what is easy and comfortable. Make the change this Valentine’s Day and bring the romance back into your life.
Originating in earlier Roman Festival Lupercalia where women would put their names in an urn and have them drawn out by a man of whom they would be then committed to for the next year and more often than not these matches would end up in marriage.
Romance is a key factor to a healthy relationship and helps to keep the “spark” alive between couples. Even if you are away on the day a simple phone call or a card with your name and a small gift will still show your affection and commitment to the one you love.
Some ideas to surprise your loved one this year would be to let them sleep in, bring them breakfast in bed (bacon and eggs on toast or pancakes are always good). In the language of flowers a single red rose or a bundle or roses stands for ‘I love you’, in Victorian times suitors would present flowers to their love with each flower representing a different meaning, a rose is definitely the way to go.
Whether you choose to show your love with a bunch of flowers to your loved one, a gift voucher to be pampered, a movie, a card, chocolate or anything at all, just celebrate with your loved one and spoil them!
