Start Valentine’s Day with a lovely homemade breakfast in bed for your significant other. They will surely be caught off guard once you present a lovely tray of delectable treats for them the moment they wake up!


The breakfast can be themed according to Valentine’s Day – think heart-shaped toast, strawberries, raspberry jam…basically all things heart-shaped and red/pink!


2. Leave little love notes everywhere around the house

Psst…to do this, you’ll have to get the notes written and prepared before the actual day!


Write sweet nothings on colored pieces of heart-shaped paper and put them all over the house where they will see them. Mirrors, fridge doors and even in their wallet! That way, it’ll always be a pleasant and sweet surprise for them to receive a cute love note from you.


3. Fruits with cute messages

Use a marker with edible ink and write these cute punny messages on fruits that they will eat. It’s so cheesy but will surely warm their hearts once they read (and eat) it!


4. Romantic dinner at home

You can either surprise your loved one with a home cooked dinner or make it together! Dressing up your dining table with sweet décor that will set the mood for a romantic Valentine’s Day at home.


Since Valentine’s Day is all about spending time together, why not spend part of the evening cooking together?


5. Movie night

Instead of heading out to catch a show, stay at home instead for a quiet and intimate movie night. Complete it with some popcorn, wine, soft blankets and cushy pillows!


6. Dance

Who says you have to be out partying to dance? Simply put on a slow and romantic track and dance with your partner. You don’t have to be a pro or anything – just hold each other close and move along to the rhythm of the music!


7. Scavenger hunt

Apart from leaving notes around the house, you can also take it up a notch by making it a scavenger hunt! With each note they find, you can leave a sweet treat or present to reward them for finding your notes!


8. Vouchers

Spice things up with love vouchers that you can either print or draw on your own. Personalize them with things that you and your partner will surely love – this goes beyond Valentine’s Day, to keep the romance burning, of course!


Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about spending lots of money to show how much you love your significant other. Sometimes, it’s just the quality time that matters!
