50 Ways to ask ‘Marry Me?’ on Valentine’s Day

It’s no good planning a wedding if you haven’t even popped the big question yet. Here are 50 of the best ways to let that special person know that you want to marry her/him. Then you will really have a story to tell to family and friends.

1. Do it the old fashioned way. Get down on one knee with a rose clenched in your teeth and the ring in your hand just before you are about to eat dessert in a busy restaurant.

2. Have a waiter bring you a small cake with the ring inside of it. (Be careful that she doesn’t swallow it).

3. Take her/him to the theatre and ask the stage manager if he will ask her/him to marry you after the final curtain. This is the perfect ending to a perfect evening.

4. Turn up at her/his office in the middle of the afternoon armed with a red rose, a bottle of champagne and a glass with the ring in it.

5. Write ‘will you marry me’ — her/his name in chalk on the street out side your apartment in big enough letters so that she/he will notice it.

2 Most Romantic and Sensual Valentine’s Day Ideas

Doing things together makes a Valentine’s Day really special. Get inspired for some really romantic and sensual things you can do together with your Valentine to make this Valentine’s Day truly memorable and fun.

1. Romantic Hot Spots at Home

Find a romantic spot within your home to romance away the evening. Dress up the spot with candles and flowers and/or plan what special activity you can do there together. It could be sipping wine, watching a movie, cooking together or anything else you truly enjoy doing with your partner. If you are married and have kids, just lounging together and talking about ‘non serious’ stuff is in itself a great thing to do on Valentine’s Day.

Finding a romance spot right at home also gives you the luxury of ‘not having to drive back‘ after a fun and relaxing hour.

Our top favorite romantic spots within the home are:

Bath Tub or Jacuzzi

The bathroom is the perfect place for a romantic rendezvous. Create a comfortable warm temperature. Light a few candles, put on romantic music and make a bath ready. Use rose petals and soft fragrant bubble bath depending on your mood. Invite your lover in by a trail of rose petals.

Fireplace

Especially in the colder months, and during cool nights, the fireplace is an excellent place for a romantic date. For added ambience, place candles around the open fire, spreads a soft blanket and put out your favorite treats to nibble. Share a glass of wine, cuddling together, talking together or play a game.

Bedroom

An often overlooked romantic hot spot is your own bedroom. Since it is your own bedroom, it gives an immediate sense of confidence and is the perfect place for a relaxed, sensual evening. Use luxurious linens, lit the room with candles and turn romantic music. Alternatively, you could watch a romantic movie or give massages.

Under the Stars

Head out in the garden or on the balcony, if you have one, and get cozy with your partner inside a warm blanket watching stars and sipping wine.

The Loft

Your attic can be a romantic hideaway. Hang some paintings on the walls, prop a mattress on the floor with lots of pillows and a soft blanket and you are ready for a secret rendezvous with your Valentine.

Kitchen

Good food and romance go hand in hand, so it is no surprise that the kitchen is a part of this list for romantic hot spots. Have a romantic cookout together and then enjoy the prepared meal right in the kitchen.

2. Romantic Breakfast in Bed

Start the morning right and all the day can not go wrong. Surprise your beloved with a delicious breakfast in bed. Some ideas for a romantic breakfast in bed are:

  • Cut vegetables into cubes, hearts or fun shapes

  • Cut strawberries in the shape of hearts

  • Make thin pancakes, and pour chocolate syrup or jam to write “I Love You” or make a heart shape.

  • Bake waffles in a heart-shaped waffle maker

  • Server freshly squeezed fruit juice and coffee or tea

  • Buy the muffins and croissants from the baker and warm them up in the morning

  • Serve freshly baked rolls in different sizes and variations

  • Make a toast with the words: I love you or a Heart Shaped Raspberry Jam Toast.

  • Make the breakfast very special by serving champagne

  • Bake cookies in the shape of hearts

  • Muesli and yogurt or cottage cheese or fresh (red) fruits

  • See more Valentine’s Day Breakfast Recipes

  • Hide a love poem inside the breakfast

  • Put a red rose on the tray

  • Put candles on the tray

  • Sprinkle rose petals on the tray

If you have kids, you can either choose to involve them or give them breakfast in their own beds.

20 Fun Ways to Gift a Diamond

For growing number of young couples in the early years of marriage, the custom of giving a diamond Anniversary, Eternity or Alliance ring—the band of diamonds that says ‘my love runs out at the circle’s end’—is a symbol of love’s reaffirmation. It is a custom that is stronger and more powerful now than it has ever been. Most women still want a diamond. It’s the stone of choice for brides. They’re beautiful, precious, timeless, lasting and traditional. Diamonds…Their power and indomitable force came to be acknowledged as the perfect symbol of love. Diamond is considered a manifestation of the most important power on earth: the power of love.

The diamond symbolises love and appreciation and can be gifted in very imaginative and special ways. Throw away the velvet box.

1. Take your love out for a romantic dinner and pamper her to the hilt. Have an arrangement with the restaurant, so that when dessert is served, the diamond ring is used as part of the topping. Your lady love won’t be able to resist the diamond-encrusted offering!

2. Gift her a beautiful porcelain doll and place a gorgeous diamond bracelet around the doll’s hand. She might initially go ‘ga ga’ over the doll, but once her eyes settle on the bracelet she won’t be able to stop talking about it.

3. Gift your wife a book of poetry with some of the pages folded together. Hide a sparkling treasure inside those pages.

4. Before you leave for work leave a big wrapped box in the middle of the living room so that when your partner comes home, that’s the first thing she sees. When she opens the box she will find a smaller one with a special note or poem from you. The boxes will get progressively smaller and the last box will contain your diamond gift.

5. Take your wife for a long drive and ask her to get a cassette out of the glove compartment, when she opens it, the diamond ring will be lying there. Or you could ask her to take a particular cassette out and have the diamond ring in the cassette cover.

6. Propose to your girlfriend on your birthday. Say you don’t want to open your presents and would rather she did it. Make sure the first present she opens has the ring in it. You can pop the question once she has unwrapped the gift.

7. Tell your partner that you have taken a keen interest in musicand you would like to put up a show for her. Your grand finale? Pulling out a diamond necklace out of your hat!

8. If you wish to make her work for the gift, try organizing a treasure hunt. Strew rose petals from the doorway to the bedroom so that the moment she enters the house, she will be entranced. Leave fun clues for her around the house, so that each time she solves a clue and reaches the destination she receives a small gift like perfumes, chocolates, etc—the beautiful diamond gift will be the spectacular prize at the end of the hunt.

9. Replace the bookmarks in her favourite book with a pair of earrings.

10. If she’s an animal lover bring home a little puppy or kitten. Tie the ring around the animal’s collar with a ribbon.

11. Buy your love a heart-shaped box of candy and replace one of the pieces with a diamond ring. When she opens it, she’ll be in for a nice chocolicious surprise!

12. When she’s not looking, slip a diamond bracelet onto her key chain. She might not notice the addition immediately, but it’s sure to guarantee a second look and a delightful shout!

13. Renew your wedding vows on your anniversary by gifting each other new diamond rings!

14. ‘Dress’ her favorite bottle of perfume with the solitaire ring.

15. Cook your wife a romantic dinner. Using a ribbon, tie a diamond ring to the stem of a champagne glass.

16. Express your love by giving your wife a foot massage. When you are almost done place the diamond on her little toe. This is one massage she won’t forget!

17. Place a diamond ring on the knob of the alarm clock….. What better way to start her day.

18. Give her the handbag she always wanted with a diamond ring inside it.

19. Replace your man’s old cufflinks with diamond-encrusted ones.

20. Surprise her by coming home a little early from work. Ask her to close her eyes, take her hand and slip on a diamond ring.

Be Romantic Today!

With so many couples running hectic life’s today it is not surprising that there is very little romance in relationships. Valentine’s Day is just the perfect occasion to bring back romance into your lives.

Romance isn’t just about going out to a posh restaurant, or a dozen red roses, but a relationship does need romance to survive. Our life’s run in a routinely pattern, we get up, shower, go to work, take care of the kids, spend time with friends, and so on then go to bed.

On average we spend 10 hours a day with our partner, at least 7 of those sleeping. So how can we make time for romance as well as everything else that needs taking care of? Don’t fret, it can be done!

It started with a kiss
As soon as you wake up give your loved one a kiss and tell them how much you love them. Then before he/she leaves for work give him/her another kiss. This will make them feel good all day and will let them know how much you love them.

Give him/her a call
How long does it take to say “I love you”? A second. Even the high flying executive can afford to take a second out of their day and it is a second worth using. Phone him/her and tell them that you love them and have being thinking about them all day. The two of you will feel loved and will look forward to seeing each other.

Flowers
On your way home stop at the local park and pick a few flowers. Most people would go out and buy a bunch but I personally think that it is more romantic to pick them. It shows how much thought and work went in to getting them. Then when she greets you give her them.

Wait for him/her
If you are home first, be waiting at the door for him/her and greet him/her with a kiss and cuddle.

A surprise cuddle
When he/she is sitting doing what ever it is they do sit beside them and give them a cuddle. You could rent a film and snuggle up together for the night. (Go on forget the housework it will still be there tomorrow.)

A meal for two
If you are the one that rarely does the cooking in your house, surprise her with a candlelit dinner for two.

A bath together
Run a bath ready for when your loved one comes home from work and join him/her.

These are just a few ideas to help you out. Remember a kiss and a cuddle is just as romantic as being wined and dined. But spending an evening out is also needed today and at least once a month.

Romantic Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Valentine is a day lovers want to celebrate in leisure and in the most rocking way. Generally, they do not want to rush at the last minute. That is why most get involved with the preparations one month prior to the occasion. Celebrations can be done in any way, be it with presenting chocolates, red roses, and other fabulous gifts. However, to make it a memorable day, one needs to do something extra in addition to the usual. You can surprise your sweet heart with some of the ideas given below:

Are You Residing in a Snowy Area?

Lovers residing in areas where there is abundant snowfall can check out this romantic Valentine’s Day idea. All you need to have is a red can of spray paint. You may be taking it as a joke. Seriously speaking, it will turn out to be your best Valentine’s Day. Think about a beautiful love quote, or you may address your love with witty quotes; do whatever you must, but expressing your love is what matters in the end. To surprise you now, you do not have to paint the quote on any piece of paper or cardboard, but on snow. Is it not a chilling idea? You may decorate the walkway with luminaries. Be sure you do all this 20 or 30 minutes before the arrival of your Valentine.

Well, you can easily imagine the charm of glittering red paint on white snow. We hope that you will execute the plan in a very nice way. You can be the one featuring in the evening news with a perfect gift for your valentine. Be ready for her appreciation.

Love Notes

Another Valentine’s Day romantic idea requires you to write a few sentences about your love on different decorative sheets. Do not tend to pen down long sentences. Next, cut out each sentence and outline each strip with a marker or crayons. You may hang these strips from your chandelier; place them all over in your room. You will certainly surprise the one you care for with your creativity and spirit of love.

Especially for Wives

You may become a little crafty too. Get a red constructive sheet, rose petals, and Angel kisses. Trace out your feet on the sheet and place it at the doorway. Place more of these feet starting from the doorway leading to your bedroom. Next, decorate your room with Herschel kisses, balloons and red roses. You may adorn your room with stuffed toys too. They are always fascinating. Dangle a large heart from the ceiling right in the center that reads out a love quote addressing your partner. Your valentine will just love the idea. It is a nice way to renew your love bond.

Love Poems

Wake up your poetic instincts. Everyone loves to listen to their praise, and so will your valentine. Therefore, get some innovative ideas regarding the use of vocabulary from different magazines and the Internet. You need to astonish her after the dinner that you may arrange in her honor. It is not necessary to sought out different restaurants to celebrate the occasion. You may plan the dinner at home too in candlelight. Prepare the menu according to favorite dishes of your spouse. Just wait for a round of applause.

A Gift of Love

You may present such a gift that your partner has been waiting for long, like jewelry, a trip to any romantic city, or a movie. However, whatever you do, your valentine will cherish your company most of all.

3 Romantic First Date Ideas

First impressions are everything when it comes to meeting someone new, and regardless of how hard it might be at first to make a good first impression, you can still find a lot of crazy and funny ways in which to get a good one which will ultimately bring a second, a third and maybe a 4th date.

That being said, when it comes to the first date, everything has to be perfect, or funny enough that it just does not matter, and seeing as most men struggle with this aspect, let us look at 3 romantic first date ideas that will rock her socks off.

1. The Online Florist Gag

Here is something I like doing, not only because it is fun, but also because it stirs a lot of positive emotions within my female partner. What I do is get a hold of an online florist and come up with a very romantic flower arrangement. It has to have a lot of red roses, a few white ones, and a very special rose, usually an ice blue one or a green one hidden within the flower arrangement itself, with a card that says “there is always something different and exciting in every single thing that we hold dear to our hearts”.

2. The Research Genius

This requires doing a lot or research and a lot of recon on your potential partner. You must keep in mind that you are not a stalker, you are not a creep and by no means of the imagination a weirdo. You are simply gathering as much information as you possibly can in order to give her the best and the most romantic first date of her life. This will not only impress her but it will definitely mark you as the alpha male for her.

3. The Clumsy Model

This is by far the hardest one that you can pull off. You basically have to look as good as a super model but act a little on the clumsy side, making her feel relaxed around you and showing her that no matter how good you look, you are still a great guy that she will most likely love to spend time with.

This is especially hard because if you are too clumsy you will come off as being insecure and too flawed for her tastes, and if you are not clumsy enough you will come off as someone that is trying too much and you will obtain an adverse effect pretty fast.

So if you want to really flex the romantic muscle, you should boost your creativity level and find something unique and put it in the way that would benefit her, making her feel like she is the most important person in the world on that date.

This is what most of the first dates around are about and keep in mind that the result and the reward for this is well worth the effort that you put in it.

Alternatives to Roses for Valentine’s Day

February 14 is Valentines’ Day. Consumers buy around 180 million roses, 36 million boxes of heart-shaped chocolate and 188 million greeting cards. And this is only in the United States. Valentine’s Day is celebrated in United Kingdom, Canada, Mexico, Australia, France, Denmark and Italy. It’s a pity that the rose; heart-shaped box of chocolates and fancy greeting cards are the potential things for distributing on Valentine’s Day.

Are there any other ways to say “I love you”?

Roses are traditional, but other flowers are becoming increasingly popular as Valentine’s Day gifts. You can give alternative Valentine’s Day flowers instead of roses. Red Flowers of all kinds are favorable. Other red flowers include amaryllistulipsdaisy etc. Fragrant flowers such as jasminegardenia or stephanotis and exotic orchids can be glamorous Valentine’s Day gift. Flowers are perceived as a personal and intimate gift.
