30 Simple Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Celebrating Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is coming and I know people are wracking their brains trying to figure out what grand gesture can they do. I’m all for grand gestures. They’re fun, exciting and can make a person feel special. But let’s just be clear about one thing, Valentine’s Day isn’t the only time you should show your partner, lover, SO, boo-thing an extravagant gesture of love. Ok, I’m done with my mini rant. As we enter this Valentine’s Day season let’s keep in mind that small gestures are just as meaningful as the big ones and less expensive, just saying. Here are some small romantic things you can do to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

  1. Do something small every day leading up to Valentine’s Day. Hmm, I may have to do this one myself.
  2. Make breakfast in bed.
  3. Do a photo shoot. Feel free to spice it up if you want.
  4. Make handmade cards.
  5. Have an indoor picnic. I’ve personally done this and it was amazeballs!
  6. Leave a cute note on the bathroom mirror for your significant other to see.
  7. Make dinner together.
  8. Plan a day to do his/her favorite things.
  9. Send a sexy picture. Who wouldn’t like that?
  10. Wake up and do all the chores and errands—without being asked or complaining. Just do it.
  11. Leave a rose on his/her windshield with a note attached—guilty as charged for doing this one too.
  12. Wash the car.
  13. Buy his or her favorite cologne/perfume.
  14. Make a creative coupon book (free favorite meal, free massage, etc.).
  15. Get adventurous. This is right up my alley. Whether it’s skydiving or snowboarding, the experience will bring you two closer together.
  16. Make your boo lunch for work—and hand it to him/her when he or she is heading out the door.
  17. Take a trip down memory lane and visit the place you two first met.
  18. Run a warm bubble bath.
  19. Write a poem.
  20. Introduce him/her to your parents. That’s when you know things are serious.
  21. Try an activity that your partner loves to do, but you don’t really do with him/her.
  22. Go to the park and play. Unleash your inner kid.
  23. Wear some sexy pajamas to bed—especially if you typically go to sleep in sweatpants and t-shirt.
  24. Wake up and randomly start kissing your SO.
  25. Lay up in bed all day with your partner.
  26. Make a playlist of lovey dovey songs.
  27. Open the door for your partner. Men don’t seem to do this much nowadays, but ladies, it’s okay for us to do this too.
  28. Iron his or her clothes for work.
  29. Make a scrapbook of you and your boo’s memories.
  30. Surprise your partner with a quirky gift that shows how well you know him/her.

Love shouldn’t cost a thing—well, at least not a lot. There are so many little things you can do to show your significant other love. Here’s a longer list by She Knows that has 100 small gestures you can do. Comment below on which romantic ideas you’re thinking about doing or any other ways you have to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
