Don’t: Forget the date!

This happens way more often than it should, but it’s hard to remember days like this with work on your mind, family to look after and money to worry about. Put a reminder on your phone or write it in your calendar, you don’t want to be the one that needs to be reminded every year of the day put aside specifically to celebrate your love!

Do: Discuss Plans with Your Partner

Before the big day, have a conversation about how far you are going to take celebrations. It is no secret that some people just aren’t that bothered about Valentine’s Day so you need to make sure you’re on the same page. Are you going to go to the cinema for the evening or spending a romantic weekend away together? These sorts of conversations will mean that you will avoid disappointment and potential arguments!

Don’t: Spend Your Night on Your Phone

It is almost natural these days to grab your phone out of your pocket when you have a second spare to message a friend, post a picture or browse the internet. If you are going to have one night where you aren’t filling in your friends on the latest gossip, or watching the most recently uploaded hilarious video on YouTube, this is the night! Make sure all of your attention is on your partner, the world can wait for a few hours!

Do: Buy Your Partner a Present

Whether it’s something small or extravagant, it is important not to turn up empty handed. A beautiful bouquet of flowers is a great choice for both men and women and can be customised with favourite flowers and colours. It doesn’t have to be expensive or time consuming to get hold of, a present that has some thought put into it is always a winner.

Don’t: Leave the Card Blank

When it comes to writing a card for your loved one, of course you will sign your name, but is that good enough? You don’t need to write a paragraph about how the world will end if you didn’t have each other, nor how much your partner lights up your life. You don’t even need to write “I love you”, but show a little bit of affection!

The cards you can buy with printed poems inside or paragraphs about love will not cut it on Valentine’s Day; make sure you say it from your own mouth, or pen. If you’re feeling creative, why not make your own?

Do: Make It About the Both of You

Valentine’s Day holds implications that it is ‘women’s day’, and that men should treat their lady. In fact, the 18th Century saw a change in the meaning of Valentine’s Day that once was associated with courtly love (lust between a knight and a married woman) to becoming about celebrating couples in love. Ladies make sure you spoil your man as it is his day too.
