Valentine’s Day is a very special event for most women, so whatever you have planned for this coming February 14, be sure to make it memorable. And take note that it doesn’t have to cost a fortune, but making her feel special is essential. Similar with what I always do for Trice during our free time: since quality time is the love language where we feel our love for each other the most, I usually prepare some Filipino cuisines at home and spend the whole day together with movies and snacks. Through this, I realized that sometimes the best Valentine’s Day gift that you can give is the gift of uninterrupted time together.

And because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, start thinking about your plans, reservations and gift ideas to make sure that everything plays out smoothly. And to help you with that, here are some ways to make your significant other feel loved and special on Valentine’s Day:

Get away
If you know that your special someone is stressed with work or school, this would be the perfect Valentine’s gift for her. Through this way, you can combine the relaxation of a mini-vacation and a quality time together. So if you’ve got the time, money and freedom, then go for it!

Go for a massage
Who doesn’t want a relaxing massage? Massage is a must-do activity for Valentine’s Day! Time to book for a couple massage before you run out of slots!

Handwritten notes
I’m old school when it comes to doing surprises for Trice. I usually slip letters in one of her books/notebooks, because I love to see her reaction whenever she sees it –Priceless!

Love coupon
An excellent way to show your love can be through making love coupons or vouchers. These can contain promises, like a foot massage, be a slave for one week, and all depending on your willingness to do things for your love.

Flowers and chocolates
Flowers are always a popular choice for Valentine’s Day and a pretty safe option regardless of how long you’ve been with your girl. For some, flowers and chocolates aren’t that important, but it still symbolizes love.

50 first dates
Yeah, like the movie! Make your partner feel that it’s your first date. Remind her how charming you were when you were still wooing her. Think back to your first date, take her to the same place, eat the same food and do the same things that first sparked your romance.

Use this day as an excuse to express your real feelings, even with just a simple hug or constantly saying, “I love you” to her. Don’t over-think your gifts or plans and just do what comes naturally; because if you really know her, you’ll know how to make her happy.

So how would you make your Valentine’s Day special for your loved ones?

Nothing says “I love you” like going out with your significant other for a date that includes incredible food, stellar service, amazing music, and few cocktails. And those are what Dolcelatte offers on Valentine’s Day!

If you’re planning to celebrate at Dolcelatte, you can make reservations as early as February 6 to avoid restaurant-rush.

Whatever happens, do not leave your partner empty-handed. A card, flowers and chocolates are all cliché, but clichés become that way for a reason; they’re effective. Anything is better than nothing!
