It can be difficult to surprise them with something different if you have been together for several years.
I have put together a list of unique ways to show her you love and appreciate her this Valentines Day.
If you live together you may not have noticed all the jobs that they do around the house. What kind of things do they always do that you never do? What things do they always do that you take for granted? Is there a job that you avoid because you hate it and leave it for them to do? Start looking around you, what gesture could you make or what could you do to make them feel really appreciated. I guarantee that if you use your imagination and do something they aren't expecting this year they will be impressed. Seriously impressed.
Sometimes the simplest of things are the ones they will truly appreciate.
Here is a list of some ideas:
Breakfast in bed at the weekend
Looking after the kids at the weekend so they can sleep in
Make dinner for the weekend and do all the cleaning up afterwards
Set up an indoor picnic for them complete with candles and rose petals
Make cute post it notes telling them what you love about them and stick them on the bathroom mirror
Put post it notes with cute messages all around the house for them to randomly find
Take them somewhere nice with a picnic and what the sunset together
Set up a cosy place with blankets, candles and snacks and binge watch your favorite shows together
Make a Date night jar, write down all the romantic things you would like to do together and put those ideas into a pretty jar
Print out some love coupons that they can trade with you
Have a phone free date night, where you do't go on you phone
Make your own DIY basket full of their favorite chocolate and treats
Take them somewhere new and fun, like a trip to the local ice skating rink where you can have a lot of fun and laughs together
Make some homemade valentine cookies for them
The key to a successful Valentines day is to remember that money spent has nothing to do with the value they see, if they know that you have planned and organized to something special for them they will appreciate it so much more.
