Did you plan something romantic for this Valentine?
The year is 270 AC. A priest named Valentine is about to get executed. The reason? Love.
The most popular story about Valentine’s life is telling us how love cannot be stopped to spread. In the 3rd Century, Emperor Claudius II was a pagan and created laws about what Christians were allowed to do. One of those laws was about the Roman soldiers. To make them utterly devoted to the Empire, he stopped them from marrying. But on secret Christian ceremonies priest, Valentine began to marry them.
After he was found out and put in jail, he fell in love with the jailor’s daughter. He wrote her a love letter in the last days before his execution and signed it “From your Valentine”.
This romantic story touches the hearts of the people and becomes the base of St. Valentine’s day celebration. A celebration of true love and deep feelings.
Even if at moments the day is commercialised, the importance of the meaning is so powerful and beautiful, that is almost impossible to stay emotionally passive on it.
How will you celebrate this year Valentine’s day? Are you running out of ideas?
I can offer you some.
THE TRADITIONAL WAY IS A MUST
The traditions are still romantic, maybe even more and more lately.
Flowers, chocolates and love cards are the basic of St. Valentine’s Day. There is no way your loved one not to expect flower, so you better get prepared for it. You can get her favourite flower or to stick with the classic red roses if you’re not sure what she likes. Glasses of sparkling champagne and dinner at the restaurant is one of the most popular ways to celebrate your love. You can go to a new restaurant and try a fresh international food – an experiment and different experience for both of you. That will add one more emotion for the evening.

DURING THE DAY – now that idea is worth to try
If you want to make a nice surprise, you could spoil your girl at work or home with roses and Teddy bear. This will bring a smile on her face and will set the mood for the rest of the day.
If you’re preparing a surprise for the evening, you can send her a text message with the dress code, or a small hint about the surprise to make her more curious and excited about it.
DINNER AT HOME – romantic way to say “I love you.”
The idea is to prepare dinner for you two at home. Even if you live together, you can make the place to look romantic with some candles and a blanket on the floor in front of the fireplace.
If you don’t like to cook usually, but you do it on this day, she will appreciate it, believe me. Glass of favourite wine, a single flower and soft music are a promising start of the evening for you two.
You could proceed the evening with a bath full of rose leaves and gentle fragrance. This sound like a night she will remember.
SECOND FIRST DATE?
Do you remember your first date? Where was it? What did you do?
A perfect way to celebrate your love on Valentine’s Day is to remind yourself how everything started.
Go to the same restaurant and reserve the same table. Buy flowers and order her favourite food. Rewrite your first evening or day together with the knowledge you already have. Talk about how your love grew from that day till now.
Remembering your first thoughts about her will bring more emotions, and she will do the same, trust me.
If you and your partner are outdoorsy, this is a brilliant idea for St. Valentine’s Day.
You can bike together, have a nice home prepared meal on the meadow in the park, a small boat excursion or just a simple walk. If you like climbing mountains or water rafting you can do that as well. As long as you spend the time together and you’re both having fun and feel the pleasure of being with the other, it doesn’t matter where you are.
