Valentine’s Day: 5 Tips for Planning the Perfect Valentine’s Day
Start the holiday season off right by planning your Valentine’s Day a little further in advance than most people. By doing this, you will save valuable time and money.
one. Set aside a time when you know you won’t be distracted or have other obligations to attend to. Maybe this means getting up an hour earlier or staying up later. On a work day maybe you take your lunch to the car one day and eat and plan in solitude. Remember we’re only doing this Valentine’s Day planning once. It’s not like it’s going to be an everyday occurrence!
2. Get ready to plan the perfect Valentine’s Day. If you get up at 5 am, make a nice cup of some hot drink that you can drink while you plan. Also play quiet music if possible. Think about why you love your guy. What has he done to make your life special and more enjoyable? Getting into a positive and loving state of mind will do wonders for your planning. You will feel more excited and creative and this planning process will go well.
3. Come up with a list of things your guy likes, as well as things he doesn’t like. Then, as you think of ideas, you can quickly delete them if you fall on the “don’t like” side.
Four. Consider where you want to celebrate Valentine’s Day, what time of day it will be, how much time you will have, and what the weather will be like. If you have kids, you’ll need to wait until they’re in bed and do something around the house or find a babysitter so you can go out, or have the house to yourselves while they’re gone. No kids, that will make planning easier for you! Will you be dining at a restaurant or at home on the patio or as an indoor picnic?
5. How is your budget? Do you feel a pinch? Then try doing something creative but easy on the wallet. Get out a pack of construction paper and some markers and cut out dozens if not hundreds of hearts! On each write something special, funny or romantic. Then throw them in his car or spread them out in his office. You will find them for weeks! If you have more leeway in your finances, buy a few bags of chocolate and turn them into words or hearts around the house.
