When planning a special Valentine’s Day for your love, make sure you keep their preferences and desires in mind. A lot of women love to receive Valentine’s Day jewelry, but you don’t have to spring for a diamond ring or break your bank account on a tennis bracelet just to prove your love. If you put a little thought into it, you can give your special someone a happy Valentine’s day just by doing something for them you know that they will love and that they will know is a personal gift from you.
Order Flowers Early
If you put in the order for your lover’s Valentine’s Day flowers early, even though you’re ordering them for delivery on Valentine’s Day just like the next guy, the flowers will be much cheaper than ordering the same flowers for Valentine’s day at the last minute. Sometimes you can pay as much as six times as much for the same dozen roses if you order them the day before Valentine’s day.
To save money on Valentine’s Day flowers without compromising flower quality, there are some florists, such as Proflowers.com, who provide flowers directly from the grower, in a bouquet that is shipped to your recipient inside a delivery box.
Direct from the grower-shippers like Proflowers is much cheaper than having the flowers delivered by a florist. The only drawback is that very occasionally, the flowers don’t make the trip in the box as well as they should, and your recipient may receive a damaged bouquet, which will be replaced by the company. Also, the flowers are not hand-delivered to your recipient as with a local florist, so if you are looking for attention and bravado in your Valentine’s Day flower gift, you may want to stick with a local florist, and maybe add some balloons to the package.
Make Dinner Reservations Early
A great Valentine’s Day dinner is essential to planning the perfect Valentine’s Day for your love. Depending on your Valentine’s Day sweetie’s preferences, you should make reservations at a fine restaurant and have a lovely meal. Make sure you book reservations at least a week, if not two weeks in advance, or you will probably find yourself waiting in line for a table at the Olive Garden or Denny’s.
Or, Cook Your Own Fabulous Candlelight Dinner
However, if you’re on a budget and a little handy with a spatula, check your local grocer for deals on shrimp or steak and cook your own Valentine’s Day meal. There will usually be listings in your local grocery flyers for what is fresh, high quality, and on sale, and you can often find a good price on fine steaks, shrimp, or other fresh meat. If you cook your own candlelight dinner, tour Valentine’s Day meal will be cheaper, higher quality, and your sweetie will love that you cooked it. You can arrange a setting for a romantic candlelight dinner fairly easily using online etiquette guides for table settings, and you can cook a great meal just by finding and following a simple online recipe from web food authorities such as the website for Epicurious or Food Network’s website. Rachael Ray and Giada DeLaurentis are two good Food Network cooks who offer recipes on the web which are gourmet and are pretty easy to reproduce and plate on your own.
Close the Deal for Snuggle Time
At the end of the zapoznanstva, once you’ve wooed your love, it’s time to close the deal. Rose petals and flowers are a common gift for Valentine’s Day, and some aspiring Valentine’s Day Cupids like to spread roses out in a pathway or on a bedspread for a Valentine’s Day surprise. If real rose petals are expensive or they are not available, you can also choose a cheaper flower to save money on your floral costs during Valentine’s Day.
In addition to petals, candles, and perfumes, chocolates are a great gift for Valentine’s Day because they are, in theory, an aphrodisiac. Godiva Chocolates seem to have a greater impact on the ladies’ swoon factor due to their fine packaging and extremely high quality of chocolate. The Valentine’s Day chocolates in the grocery store, like Russell Stover, simply do not compare in the level of quality and impact that they have as a Valentine’s Day gift. If your lover likes chocolate, they will definitely notice a high-quality chocolate gift, so make sure you choose a chocolate that your Valentine will really love.
Above all, make sure you remember that you are doing this for your Valentine’s Day love, and regardless of what advice people give you, keep in mind that you know your sweetie. If you remain confident that you know what to plan for your lover’s perfect Valentine’s Day and make the necessary orders and reservations, everything will fall into place.
