Affordable ways to show you care
Sadly, it’s easy to forget that Valentine’s Day is about romance, not money and elaborate gifts. Hotspots Magazine has come up with several affordable, yet sweet ways for you to spread the love.
Chances are, you’ve probably stopped spouting romantic promises after week six of your relationship. Sit down and take the time to remember why it is you fell in love with your partner and write down how you feel. You don’t have to be a poet to get your point across.
Take a stroll together.
Yes, walking on the beach sounds like the cheesy stereotype of romance, but when was the last time you took the time to stroll the sands hand in hand with your man? And nighttime on the beach screams romance.
Have a picnic.
Those who aren’t into strolling along the beach might prefer packing a picnic and having one on the sand. If you have a nice yard, you can even have a picnic there – pack some wine, cheese and other favorites, spread a blanket and play your favorite tunes and really enjoy the outdoors – together. Don’t forget the bug repellant-it is Florida, after all!
Do the two of you watch the Food Network every night in awe of the talented chefs? Do you fancy yourselves stifled Martha Stewart types? Choose a recipe that intimidates you, yet sounds mouthwatering and get together and create it. To make it even more fun, you can dress up when its time to sit down and enjoy your meal!
Choose the mushiest, most cavity-inducing romances, light some candles, pour wine, and grab your snuggliest blanket and watch together.
Have you been told that you’re good with your hands? Put them to good use by massaging your man! Put on the spa music station, light some candles and don’t forget the scented oils.
Take erotic photos of each other
Needless to say, you have to really trust your partner in order to do this, but if you do (or if you’re an exhibitionist and have no issues with people seeing you naked), you can have a lot of fun doing this. Hang a sheet on a wall for a backdrop, if you can, and feel free to use props!
Go old school and make a mix tape… on CD
Remember the feeling you used to get playing a tape that a crush made for you? Remember the thrill of wondering whether the songs he chose were about you? Give your partner that loving feeling by putting together a song list that is special to the both of you. Personalize it by hand making a cover (perhaps featuring the two of you?) for the CD jewel case.
Any of these super romantic tips will surely make you the king of romance this Valentine’s Day.
