At age five, you woke to the anticipation and thrill of paper valentines and white doilies decorated with taped-on heart-shaped lollipops. At age fifteen, your heart raced passing a folded note to your high school crush. Now that you’re an adult, Valentine’s day has taken on a whole new meaning.
Alone or attached, coupled or parenting, Valentines Day is the ideal opportunity to spoil yourself and those you love. Chill the bubbly, stock-up on chocolate delicacies, stop by the local florist and plan one of the most spectacular Valentine’s ever.
Here’s a few tips for making this the most memorable ever:
* Reserve a romantic Bed & Breakfast at a locale you’ve always longed to visit. Research your options to find the ideal inn exquisitely decorated, since you’ll want to spend most of your time indoors. Keep in mind, many popular suites book far in advance and require a minimum three-day stay.
* Book a three- to five-day ocean cruise to Alaska, Hawaii or the Caribbean. Day or night, the tranquil ocean waters and gentle waves have lulled the hearts of lovers for centuries.
* Plan a camping trip in the southwest and remember to schedule time for a warm, crackling bonfire under the stars, with blankets optional. Bringing the kids? Just pack the ingredients for warm s’mores.
* Book time at a spa for a day or weekend filled with luxury and indulgence. Today’s spas offer the best in skin and body care plus health and wellness. You’ll return to work – and life – vibrant, glowing and rejuvenated.
* Arrange for a romantic Valentine weekend at home. Secretly arrange childcare with friends or family members. Stock-up on candles, campaign and truffles. Then prepare a candle lit dinner for two, complete with a mouth-watering chocolate cake and a fresh flower arrangement. Then wake early to cook a hearty breakfast in bed.
* Miss time with your family? Take this opportunity to show everyone in your life how much you love them. Plan a family vacation to DisneyWorld, the Mall of America or a historical landmark the kids are learning about in school. Remember to bring pink and red cards and gifts for everyone.
* Solo? Don’t mope. Valentine’s Day is a perfect chance to reconnect you’re your friends. Visit your old college buddy on the east coast or plan a fun-filled girl’s night out.
Valentine’s Day is a great day to treat and spoil yourself. Plan well in advance and make it a holiday you’ll talk about for years to come.
