Love is one of the great things that makes life worth living. We have special days such as Mothering Sunday when we can honour those we cherish the most. February is a focal point for romance and particularly this year with a Leap Year meaning us women can pop the question if the mood takes us. Here are some great ideas for celebrating Valentines Day in style whether you are in a new relationship or in a long-term partnership that needs a bit of a romantic revival.
Jewelery ideas for Valentines Day
When someone gifts us jewelery we feel so special. My family were big jewelery buyers because mum loved shiny items such as necklaces and earrings. She had a box full of fancy rings too. I like beautiful jewelery too and am hoping my husband will treat me this year. Ideally I would like a necklace and a matching bracelet.
There are few people who do not like to receive a lovely bouquet of flowers. My mother was not a huge fan as she preferred house plants. However she would always appreciate iris and freesia. I adore receiving flowers and have a dream that someone would send me some every week. They add colour and sweet smells to the home.
Getting away from it all is good for us at any time of year. Different couples would go for diverse locations and accommodation choices. I would like to spend a week of peace and harmony on a canal boating holiday in the UK. Other people might prefer a luxury cruise or even camping. It is about working out what you and your partner both enjoy. Forget what other people think and do what works for you.
Keep it simple
We all have our fantasies about the perfect Valentines Day. Unfortunately most of us have to work to a limited budget. If we have children, we cannot just take off whenever the mood takes us especially if we lack a strong support network. That does not mean we should not celebrate Valentines Day. I love it when my husband cooks me a steak dinner and then we spend time watching a film together. Simple pleasures really are good enough sometimes. If you are short of cash it is always worth checking out special seasonal deals online.
