Valentine’s Day is the day, that gives you an opportunity to show your loved ones how much you love them, even though I do not think you should wait for this particular day to do so. But on this day, you can make it more special . Many people around the world celebrate Valentine’s Day by showing appreciation for the people they love or adore. Some people take their loved ones for a romantic dinner at a restaurant, while others may choose this day to propose or get married. Many people give greeting cards, chocolates, jewellery or flowers, particularly roses, to their partners or admirers on Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Whether you are spending the day with a special someone or just embracing yourself to say “I love you” first time, here are some most romantic thing and ways that you can do on a day that’s set aside for love.
1.Express your love with the Rose.
No gift says “I love you” on Valentine’s Day like a bouquet of roses. Express your words with a rose. Just remember the meaning of the colours. While lavender (or purple) are seen more on first dates and secret “love at first sight” times, white roses are a tradition for weddings. Pink, orange, and yellow roses are viewed as admiration, excitement, and friendship respectively. The yellow and pink are very similar and can be used for the same events. Finally, the red rose, as the colour expresses and emphasizes beauty and love. Red roses are traditionally exchanged by couples and people whom wish to express their feelings towards another.
2. Gateway together
Surprise your spouse with a special getaway together. The man who suggested this made reservations at a bed and breakfast, arranged for childcare, asked for time off from work for himself and his wife, and packed his and her bags. Have that special day just for you two.

4. Candlelight dinner
Is there really anything more romantic than this Valentine’s Day idea? Whether you are hosting this in your home or at an expensive restaurant, this is always a winner. If you’re at home, spread some rose petals around , light some candle , put some romantic music on and just go with the flow. Open a bottle of your favourite wine, or a chilled bottle of Champagne. If you don’t want to cook, then you can always have a take away, but I think cooking together is so romantic, so cooking would be my choice.

If you both just need to relax on Valentine’s Day then try this idea. Put together a Valentine’s Day movie ,something in the line of “P.S I love you ” and then pop some popcorn, open a bottle of wine, lay out a few chocolates and then relax on the sofa and give each other foot and back massages during the movies.
