Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, guys! What do YOU have planned?
I will tell you the truth: I get nervous every time around this year, as I wonder what I should do this time around. There is the pressure to not disappoint, and I don’t want to focus on simply buying things because then you can get into the trap of having to spend more and more money each year. I also want to do something a bit different, just so that there is an element of surprise.
However, what I think is important is to show some appreciation for the other person, not just on that day but everyday. Sometimes the simple gestures can become meaningful, and sometimes jewellery is a nice touch!
Last year I talked about 3 Frugal Ideas for a Romantic Valentine’s Day. I believe that these ideas are timeless, and you won’t go wrong if you decide to try them out. I also want to recommend something else that I have done from time to time (and not just on Valentine’s Day): a weekend trip to a bed & breakfast.
I did this once to a farm B&B a couple of hours out west, and the place was beautifully decorated and very warm. We had a very delicious game meat dinner, and the room was very comfortable and even came with a bottle of champagne. This was a romantic time, and our next trip to a B&B also did not disappoint: this time we went a couple of hours to the east, to a B&B on top of a hill with a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains.
The owner was very cheerful and hospitable, and breakfast was delicious with crepes and fruit. The place had a heated indoor pool, and the surroundings were great because it had started snowing, and everything was frosted with a bit of snow like out of the Chronicles of Narnia. It was a very beautiful time.
I will close this with my thoughts: things come and go, but your memories will be cherished forever. Try something a bit different, and remember all of the good times that you had together, and make it a great Valentine’s Day.
