Attention Lovers: Are You Ready For Valentine’s Day?

You may be wondering why I’m talking about Valentine’s Day when Christmas is barely over, and you’re still eating left-over turkey! The New Year has only just begun and, at least for those of us in the frigid North, it’s time to snuggle up in front of the fire and watch our favourite TV shows (again)!

But wait, the most romantic day of the year is just around the corner!

Valentine’s Day is February 14th and it will be here before you know it.

So, follow these 4 simple steps to make this the most romantic Valentine’s Day ever!

Plan Ahead: Remember the date, set a reminder for yourself, and start planning today – it’s never too early (or late) to start!

Choose a Valentine’s Day Card: Buy or, better still, make a card and add a personal, romantic quote, such as: “Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, Kittens {or insert favourite pet, car, etc} are beautiful, and so are you!”

The Best Valentine’s Day Gifts

The most romantic gifts that you can give your partner on Valentine’s Day are the one’s that come from your heart, not from your wallet. Consider:

The Gift of Time: Take the day off, spend some time together, go for a long walk, or visit the local zoo or art gallery.

Personalized Gift: Find a gift that will remind your partner of how you met, or places that you’ve been for a romantic getaway together. For example, turn your favourite photographs into memorable gifts such as his-and-hers matching T-shirts, plates or coffee mugs.

Engraved Gifts: Choose from a wide range of items that can be engraved with one or both of your names: key rings, tankards, photo frames, pens – the choice is almost unlimited.

But, just in case you are not creative, or don’t have the time, then here are some other ideas:
