Happy Valentine’s day my sweets!

What a beautiful day this is – a day to celebrate love – love for yourself, your family, your pets, your significant other.

Scratch beneath the surface of the commercialization, and you’ll see that this can be a beautiful day indeed…a day to pamper yourself and your loved ones just a wee bit more than you do usually.

Here are some ideas for you.

For yourself:

  • Have a bubble bath with candles, wine, some music, a book
  • Indulge in your favorite foods – forget about health food for a day – indulge in some yummy cakes or lasagna instead
  • Dim the lights and meditate. Try some of the meditation music and guided meditation clips on my blog
  • Meet up with your girlfriends for  a day out in the town
  • Spend the day doing something you love – photography, art, cooking…

For your significant other:

  • Try doing something extra special that they wouldn’t expect – for me, it would be cooking up a meal!
  • Rekindle the romance – light some candles, put on some soft music, curl up together and watch a movie…or talk…or…
  • Go hiking together
  • Leave a love note on the steamed up bathroom mirror

Need a last minute valentine gift idea? Try one of these!

Got any ideas of your own? Tell me!

  1. Hee hee! Check out my post my friend – I would say it’s the opposite of yours 🙂 But you know, I had to stick with my cynicism in order to write a proper semi-etiquette post 😀

    I really like your suggestion to meditate – I can think of no better way really, to show yourself the love then by blocking everything out and tuning into your own spiritual needs. I’m still working on my ability to meditate!

    You will have to share the details of your V-day extravaganza with the hubs!
