Romantic Ideas For A Memorable Valentine’s Day -

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and this year, you want to make sure it's a memorable one.

Chocolate and cards just won't cut it. You want your loved one to feel special, to see that you put in a real effort this year, and most importantly -to demonstrate your love and commitment to your partner.

It doesn't matter if this is your first Valentine's Day together or your 20th, It's the one day a year reserved for couples. It gives us a chance to slow down the pace of the daily grind and to focus our attention on the one person who means the world to us.

The origin of Valentine's Day is steeped in mystery but legend has it that Saint Valentine sent the first Valentine's card while locked away in prison after trying to help Christians escape the harsh Roman prisons.

The valentine's card he sent out was to a young woman who just happened to be his jailer's daughter. She visited with him secretly during his confinement.

Because they didn't have long to talk, he would hand her

a small card with loving messages, and the beginning of what we now call.

"Valentine's Cards".

"Valentine's Cards".

Saint Valentine sent his final card the morning of his execution with the scribbled words, "Forever in life and death, your Valentine".

Linen Romance -

One of the most traditional and classic ways of starting off a special Valentine's Day starts before we even put our feet to the ground.

Serving the love of your life breakfast in bed is not only romantic, but it will put her in the right mood for the remainder of the day.

Even if you both have busy schedules and full work days, you can treat her to a special breakfast a bit earlier before you usually awaken.

Set your alarm clock and rise up, you are going to make her an incredible breakfast in bed!

You could also switch it up to dinner in bed, which can be even more romantic as you're both winding down from the day, the lights are low and soft music is playing in the background.

Choose some comfortable (but sexy!) sleep wear, crawl into bed and share a romantic meal. Make sure that you set up the right atmosphere with clean sheets, scented candles, light music and turn off the T.V or phones.

You want a quiet and intimate dinner between the two of you.

Music Of Your Heart -

Music plays a significant role in every romantic setting and what better way to show your love than by creating a compilation CD for your loved one with all of the songs that remind you of them.

With the accessibility of audio technology, you could record a special message at the beginning or end of the CD that describes what they are about to hear OR inject special messages in between songs that describe why that specific song reminds you of them, and what they mean to you.

Bubbly Intimacy -

One of the most memorable Valentine's Day that I have ever had was so simple to create but yet so incredibly intimate. My lover had a bubble bath waiting for me when I got home from work.

Scented candles adorned all four corners of the tub, and a brand new fuzzy bathrobe, slippers and massage oils were carefully placed in a gift basket by the tub.

Oozing sensuality, I was instructed to get in and relax. He then began washing my body, starting with my shoulders, back, legs and even my hair.

This is the stuff that dreams are made of, and it's not only easy but affordable to set up.

Consider leaving your lover to soak and relax while you escape to set up a delicious meal.

There's nothing better after a warm and relaxing bath than

a hearty meal to finish the night off.

Messages in A Bottle -

If you have trouble being romantic, or perhaps you even feel awkward expressing your love openly, this is a fantastic way of getting your message across.

Messages in a bottle will take your lover back to the romance novels of her youth, and represent secret love that every woman will melt to.

One of my friends put their own little twist to the messages of love.

Rather than just messages professing his love, he created a romantic treasure hurt where each message was a clue as to what to do next.

Go Ahead, Rub It In -

Another classic and romantic idea pulled straight from Saint Valentine's little black book! It's no wonder that massages are so incredibly adored as our skin is the largest sensory organ in the entire body.

To prepare, you will need to purchase massage oil or lotion, keeping in mind that your partner may prefer specific scents.

The next step is to set up a massage "bed", which could be a flat tabletop, a padded exercise mat laid firmly on the ground (make sure to place a warm blanket or thick towel on top of it to make it more comfortable).

Make sure to eliminate any noise and distractions, by turning off phones, cell phones and other mobile devices, shutting off the T.V and if you have children, call Grandma to baby-sit! This is a time meant for just the two of

you and you want it to be as peaceful and relaxing as possible.

She’s Got That Loving Feeling -

Ladies, don't let your man fool you! He wants a romantic Valentine's Day as much as you do.

In fact, men often have the need to feel loved and desired even more than us women! So, to kick off his Valentine's Day in style, here are a few ideas to get you started:

Gifts Galore

Today is the day to spoil him rotten! You want to start by following the classic traditions of showcasing your love on this very special day.

Consider a stuffed animal and if he's a sports fan, try for a teddy bear wearing a jersey or t-shit with his favorite sports team logo.

Buy him something he's been wanting but would likely never buy for himself, like a music CD, DVD, clothing, or anything else that is affordable

and bound to be a hit.

Take A Walk On The Wild Side -

One of the greatest obstacles for both men and women isn't in wanting to express the way that we feel about our partners but in being ABLE to express ourselves to the degree we wish we could.

This year, you are going to spice it up by shocking, impressing and leaving your partner dazed and confused as you release that sexual beast inside

of you!

Consider buying sexy lingerie, something you wouldn't normally wear. You want him to expect the unexpected!

There is no greater way to express your desire for your partner than by going all out and doing something creative and perhaps, unusual for you.

This is also the best way to spice up a relationship especially if you have been together for many years.

Romantic Getaway -

Nothing puts the sizzle back into a relationship or brings back the spark than changing your environment.

According to a study by Lava life, the large majority of couples who were surveyed claim to have had better sex with their partners in hotel rooms and other places outside of the home than they ever have had in their regular bedrooms.

Special Presentation -

One of the most romantic things you can do for your partner on Valentine's Day doesn't involve expensive jewelry or anything that hurts the pocketbook.

Instead, handcrafted cards or a scrapbook that showcases either a year's worth of memories and events or perhaps if you've never considered creating anything like this before, you can include many years of memories from being together.

Scrapbooking is a fun and heartfelt way of giving a special gift that is unique and creative.

Advertise Your Love -

While this idea isn't for everyone (if your partner is shy, you might just want to skip it!) but for those who want to go all out and truly profess their love in front of the world, there are many options available to you.

Consider calling the local radio station and planning out a public dedication to your partner. Just make sure to time it correctly so that they are sure to hear it! (Tip: Consider taping it to offer as a keepsake).

From The Heart To The Home -

No, you won't be required to invest thousands in new furniture or have to even rearrange their existing rooms. Instead, decorate their apartment or house with an "I love you" theme.

Consider red and white streamers, balloons (helium filled with bows and ribbons), a Valentine's Day cake, cookies and other treats.

Add love notes (even sticky notes will work!) all over the place, red and white heart confetti, you name it - anything goes!

When your partner enters the room they'll see an instant splash of love, and if possible, there you'll be in the center of it all!

Love Coupons -

Not sure what to get your partner this Valentine's Day? Let THEM Decide!

Create a love coupon book that entitles them to cashing in on many different favors. From back rubs to giving up the remote control for a night, you can easily customize an entire coupon book based on your partner’s desires.

This idea is not only affordable, but it comes straight from the heart, as every coupon will be based around spending quality time together.

Other ideas: Rather than giving them the entire coupon book, Consider hiding coupons around the house for your partner to find.

Put a love coupon in their briefcase, under their pillow or in a book they're reading!

Melody In Love -

Not a great singer? You don't have to be! There are online services that offer to create a lavishly produced song for that special person in your life.

Offers a unique opportunity to present your partner with a truly memorable gift, a song that is performed by your choice of a male or female recording artist with your partner's name injected throughout the song.

It's truly a touching and beautiful way to show you care and trust me, it will be a gift they will never forget.

Dancing The Night Away -

Dancing The Night Away -

One of the things most women look forward to on Valentine's Day is the opportunity to dance with the man we love.

You don't have to go out dancing to be able to share an intimate moment together.

Just turn the lights down low, turn on some romantic music and offer your partner your hand in a slow dance together.

This is one of the most traditional ways to celebrate Valentine's Day yet it's often overlooked with so many people focusing on more elaborate plans.

Bring Back The Memories -

If you have a drive in theatre in your area (and there are still many in existence, just check your local yellow pages), Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to turn the hands of time back and become nostalgic!

Drive in theaters can be very romantic and during Valentine's Day weekend, it's likely that they will be running a romantic feature film so call ahead and mark down the times that are available.

Pack a picnic lunch complete with a comfortable blanket, and prepare for a intimate night together.

Watch the movie from the car, or sit out for a picnic lunch, and enjoy each other’s company.

This is one of the easiest and most affordable Valentine's Day dates possible, and it will bring an old time flavor filled with memories.

Star Gazing Lovers -

If you are looking for an all-original gift idea for your partner on Valentine's Day, nothing is more romantic then claiming a star in the sky and naming it after your lover.

Imagine being out under the stars for a romantic walk together and being able to pull out a full coordinate guide that reveals the star you have chosen to be named after your partner.

For Men Only -

If you want to make Valentine's Day extra special for your wife or girlfriend, the ultimate gift you can give is her is in handling ALL of the details!

Set up childcare, book reservations at her favorite restaurant, book a night at a nearby hotel where you can spend the night together after dinner.

Don't ask her anything! Set up all of the details yourself and then surprise her with this special date.

Treasure & Pleasure Hunt -

Treasure hunts aren't just for kids at birthday parties; adults can certainly enjoy the thrill of the chase just as much!

Consider planning out an elaborate treasure hunt that leads your partner to each destination with love notes, offering simple clues as to what to do next. Start with giving your partner one little clue while offering "rewards" along the way.

For example, when my best friend did this for his wife he started with offering her a love note, which instructed her to go to a certain address.

For example, when my best friend did this for his wife he started with offering her a love note, which instructed her to go to a certain address.

This address, the local florist had a dozen red roses waiting for her with a note attached that led her to her next destination.

From one place to another, each stop presented her with another love note and another gift.

Conclusion: Thoughts -

Valentine's Day is all about being with the one you love. The most important thing to remember is that just by honoring the love you share with heartfelt and meaningful expressions, you will make their day a very special one.

You don't have to spend a lot of money to celebrate your love together. Even a quiet evening at home filled with romantic movies, a delicious meal and your partners favorite dessert can serve as an incredible night to remember.

It's easy to forget to take a moment to pause and show our partner that we really care, and that's what Valentine's Day is really all about.

We're given that much needed reminder that we need to pay attention to the things that truly give our lives meaning.

I wish you and your partner the most memorable Valentine's Day of

your lives,

Your Name
