Valentine’s Day isn’t just a holiday for lovers, its a day to tell the important people in your life how much they mean to you. Use V-Day as an excuse to tell your lover, bestie, mom, or anyone you wish how much you care! Every year since I was a little girl my mom would give me a small Valentine’s Day gift (usually a heart chocolate) and it was always such a sweet gesture that I now enjoy using the day as an opportunity to make others feel special! We have curated a selection of Valentine’s Day cards just for this purpose.
Create a Romantic Setting
Set the scene for a romantic evening with some candlelight, yummy wine and delicious eats. If the weather suits (which at the moment in Cape Town, it most definitely does) why not set up a picnic in the garden or on the beach for something different!
PS: If you need some recipe ideas for the evening, don’t forget to check out our Summer Thyme recipe series including Thyme Crackers & Hummus, Grilled Lemon & Thyme Chicken and a Champagne Jelly Dessert, they look super impressive but they’re so easy even I can make them. 😉
Give A Gift
Show you care with something pretty. A piece of jewellery is always a winner, alternatively present your loved ones with a special art print, a gift perfect for friends, family and any loved ones. My hubby tends to get a bit frazzled about gift ideas, so I like to send him gentle reminders whenever I find something I like to take some of that present-pressure off!
And a Few Ideas For The Man in Your Life
I plan on celebrating this Valentine’s Day with an old tradition of seeing a girly movie with friends and then having a romantic dinner with the hubster on Valentine’s evening. What are you doing this Valentine’s Day? Let us know in the comments below!
