Sitting next to you is like taking a sip of eternity, the sun, the stars, the sky, never tasted so good. – Christy Ann Martine

Nothing is more romantic than celebrating a commercially driven celebration of love – right? I will check my cynicism in for some therapy just now. If you aren’t planning to do the dinner date at a restaurant, here are a few romantic Valentine’s Day ideas:

  1. Spa date (home or at a fancy smancy spa)
    Since hubby is already took me a the spa in January, I think he can wait a bit longer to go for another spa day. If you don’t have the funds to go to a romantic spa, create your own spa night at home. You can get some really awesome products from Clicks and Dischem that won’t cost an arm or leg.
  2. Romantic picnic at home or in a park (if you are at the beach, even better)
    I love having picnics at home on the balcony overlooking Kyalami, under the stars. This is perfect for me. No mess, no fuss.
  3. Recreate your first date
    This is soooo romantic, but in my case it would have to be me getting Woolworths. I had to put eyedrops in my cat’s eye every 2 hours or so and well, he had to come to my home for dinner and sneezed due to allergies.
  4. Romantic ice cream tasting date night (great for all the heatwaves we are subjected to)
    We love ice cream so this would be perfect. It would be even better to sit on the balcony looking at the city lights while dining on gourmet ice creams.
  5. Movie night at home or the cinema
    Movies, popcorn, peace and quiet… yay! This I do regularly so, skip.
