14 Valentine’s Day Tips to make your loved one smile this February 14
Everyone loves to be spoiled on Valentine’s Day. But, did you know those Valentine’s Days that are most fondly remembered are those with a personal and unique touch?
Our team are romantics at heart and take such joy in being part of this special day for so many people. We got the best Valentine’s Day tips that will always put a smile on your sweetheart’s face.
- Recreate your first date - take them back to that first date and pucker up for that first kiss
- Pack a surprise picnic – there are so many stunning parks on the Lower North Shore to take your love to this Valentine’s Day. My favourites are Tambourine Bay, Lane Cove National Park and Wendy’s Secret Garden at Lavender Bay. A basket with wine and cheese, plus a beautiful bouquet of flowers, will top off the surprise perfectly.
- Plant a fragrant rose bush – show some ingenuity and creative thinking by planting a rose bush so that you can pick your own roses next year.
- Create a candlelit dinner at home – if you don’t normally cook, a sure-fire way to show how much you appreciate your loved one is to plan the menu, do the shopping and cook dinner for them. For a romantic touch, decorate the table by making a heart from red or pink rose petals.
- Spell it out – organise four bouquet deliveries to your loved one. Add a card to the first that just says ‘L’, then for the next three, spell out ‘O’, ‘V’, ‘E’.
- Plan a treasure hunt – handwrite love notes and hide them around the house. On Valentine’s Day morning, provide a map for them to find the treasures of your heart.
- Double the romance – there’re few things more romantic than a bouquet of roses on Valentine’s Day. One of my best Valentine’s Day tips is to organise delivery of the bouquet to your door. Double the romance by drawing chalk love hearts outside before it arrives.
- Take a ride – jump on the ferry at Greenwich Point and give your sweetheart a single red rose in a box. It’s easy to carry on board and will dial up the romance as you float across the harbour taking in some spectacular Sydney views.
- Be traditional
– organise your red rose bouquet with the team at Pure Flowers now so you don’t miss out! Did you know that the number of roses you choose holds a secret meaning?
- One red rose means ‘love at first sight’
- Six red roses mean ‘I want to be yours’
- A dozen red roses mean ‘be mine’
- Two dozen red roses mean ‘I am yours’
- Or, be different – you can choose to steer away from classic red roses and instead order a beautiful wildflower bouquet, an arrangement of their favourite flowers or a glorious seasonal bouquet.
- Sunset views – jazz up your Valentine’s Day evening by watching the sun set across Sydney from local vantage points – Blues Point Reserve, Bradfield Park or Observatory Hill.
- Make every month romantic – don’t just stop at February 14! Send them a card on the 14th of every month to celebrate your love. Start with delivering a card with a picture of roses in February, then choose one of their favourite flowers each month to adorn the front of the card.
- Learn how to make your own bouquet – take a class, either just for yourself or as a couple, to learn how to make your own bouquets here at Pure Flowers.
- Make this your year – it’s traditional for women to propose on the leap year date of February 29. Why wait? If you want to be with the love of your life, tell them now and surprise them with a bouquet of their favourite flowers.
