Valentineâ€™s Day Ideas 2012 : Top 10 ideas to treat your loved one
Valentines Day 2012â€” the day of love! But sometimes Valentineâ€™s Day can end up being the least romantic day of the year with the majority of people buying the same thing for their loved one year in year out. The same old flowers, chocolates or even a dodgy card can put you in the dog house, resulting in the infamous Cupidâ€™s arrow being aimed at your head not your heart!
Many people seem to celebrate the day out of obligation rather than celebration, but the best advice is to â€˜thinkâ€™. Put in a bit of original thought and it will be obvious that you have made some effort this time round.
So what can you do make your loved one love you in return on Valentineâ€™s Day? The team at realbuzz.com have come up with some great ideas to ensure that Cupidâ€™s aim is as true as your intentions.
1. Go for a romantic meal
Weâ€™re not talking about your usual run-of-the-mill lunch or fast food joint. Pick somewhere different, classy, and preferably expensive. An establishment with Italian or French tones will be a safe bet to ensure a successful evening.
2. Cook a meal
If you donâ€™t fancy a meal out, then why not cook one yourself? Even if you think you are the worst chef in the world, it is likely that your efforts will be appreciated. Get yourself a decent bottle of wine to compliment the meal â€” or wash away the nasty aftertaste! Remember â€” donâ€™t try to cook anything too ambitious and the key to it all is timing.
3. Consider making something for one another
The one sure fire way to give your partner something unique is to make it yourself. It could be something as simple as a card, or you could try being a bit more ambitious and use your home PC along with a bit of your creative genius to make something; a collage of photographs of favorite times together perhaps? You could even try writing a poem or compiling a list of things you love about your partner or possibly making a CD of songs you both like.
4. Get pampered together
More and more and more places are making their facilities open to couples who can enjoy being pampered together. Even if you are not into all the treatments, you can still go along, sit back and relax while your partner receives the attention they deserve. If you canâ€™t get away, consider doing all the pampering for your partner â€” buy some sensual oils, candles and turn your home into a spa for the evening.
Okay, so itâ€™s the obvious choice, but who isnâ€™t partial to a bit of jewelry or a nice watch? If you donâ€™t really know what to buy then try asking one of your partnerâ€™s friends what they think they might like. Remember to keep the receipt and donâ€™t be offended if they donâ€™t like it â€” it is better to swap it than waste your money.
6. Spend some quality time together
Forget nagging about how each of you spend your spare time â€” why not get together? Go for a round of golf, take a long walk or go to the theatre together â€” any of your favorite pastimes. Consider doing something that the other person enjoys â€” you never know, you may actually enjoy it!
7. Visit a romantic city
If youâ€™re feeling really generous then head for a romantic city. Some popular romantic destinations include Las Vegas, New York and San Francisco, or for a mellower romantic break you might want to consider heading to the beaches of Honolulu. Donâ€™t use the excuse that you have left it too late â€” you can still book a romantic break away for a weekend in the future. Just print off the tickets, wrap them up in a red bow and leave them on your loverâ€™s pillow â€” the perfect gift.
8. Celebrate with 12 days of Valentineâ€™s Day
Like the Christmas period everything doesnâ€™t necessarily have to end after the day in question â€” romance is not meant to last just one day! You could prolong the fun by using the days following to do a special act or gesture. It doesnâ€™t have to be anything big â€” just something that lets your partner know you are thinking about them.
9. Flower ideas
If you really must say it with flowers, then consider doing something original. You could have rose petals strewn around the house, in the bedroom and bathroom, or simply arrange to have them delivered to the workplace or the restaurant where you may be eating later. Just donâ€™t turn up with the same box standard fare and definitely nothing from a gas station!
10. And if you happen to be by yourself â€¦
Maybe youâ€™re one of the many who is without a significant other and maybe alone on Valentineâ€™s Day â€” but this does not mean you have to miss out on the fun. If you donâ€™t have anybody to spoil, why not take it as an opportunity to spoil yourself? Treat yourself to a bit of pampering, buy yourself something nice, or head out for a fun evening with a friend. Spend the day doing what you want to do and make it a special day just for you.

9. Sometimes we make love with our eyes. Sometimes we make love with our hands. Sometimes we make love with our bodies. Always we make love with our hearts.
10. You donâ€™t marry someone you can live with â€“ you marry the person who you cannot live without.
Valentineâ€™s Day Poems 2012 : Top 10 poems to allure your â€˜someone specialâ€™
1. My Choice Of Love (Raymond Oluferanmi Solanke)
If love comes in colors,
I choose blue,
If love comes in flowers,
Iâ€™ll choose rose,
If love comes in songs,
Iâ€™ll think of choosing Blues,
But if love should come in human beings,
Iâ€™ll definitely not think twice before
Iâ€™ll choice you!
Becauseâ€¦..You are my choice
2. There For Me (Angela Guo)
Youâ€™re there for me when Iâ€™m lost
Youâ€™re there for me at every cost
Youâ€™re there for me through snow and rain
Youâ€™re there for me when Iâ€™m in pain
Youâ€™re there for me to heal my cut
Youâ€™re there for me no matter what
Youâ€™re there for me like an angel from above
To watch over me and teach me how to love
3. Youâ€™re in Love (Kolle)
You wake up and heâ€™s on your mind.
Another subject, you canâ€™t find.
You used to think it was just a bluff.
But now you realize, youâ€™re in love.
You see him and canâ€™t help but smile.
Think of him for miles and miles.
Weak in the knees when he comes through.
You know his eyes see right through you.
You donâ€™t care what people say.
You want to be with him all day.
Seeing him you canâ€™t get enough.
And you can see that youâ€™re in love.
4. Love (Patricia Kena)
love can be good love can be bad
we all want something we never had
is there a soul mate out there for me
that special person one day we will see
someone to hold you in their arms
hands touching holding palms
sweet passionate lingering kisses
bodies fingerling heavenly bliss
I know someday I will find
that soul mate who is loving and kind
I know you are out there waiting for me
Youâ€™re in my thoughts, in my dreams
5. I Will Love You Forever (By Amanda Nicole Martinez)
I love you so deeply,
I love you so much,
I love the sound of your voice
And the way that we touch.
I love your warm smile
And your kind, thoughtful way,
The joy that you bring
To my life every day.
I love you today
As I have from the start,
And Iâ€™ll love you forever
With all of my heart.
6. Look For Me (Anonymous)
I found a leaf
(an autumn leaf,
beside a puddle yellow leaf)
Iâ€™ve launched a thousand other leaves
but this one was for you
And if this leaf
should not reach shore
Iâ€™ll launch at least
ten thousand more
So if you pass
then look for me
beside a puddle
or a tree!
7. You Are To Me (Anonymous)
Nothing can describe, the way I feel for you
Your love is warm and precious
Your heart so pure and true
Heavens angels brought me
To knock upon your door
To give you all my love
To keep you wanting more
The special bond we share, will guide us on our way
To a perfect life were dreams come true
What more can I really say
We were brought together, never will we part
Your my special gift
Your my shining star
Iâ€™ll love you unconditionally
With all my heart and soul
Iâ€™ll never break your spirit
Iâ€™ll always keep you whole
8. To Spend Forever (Anonymous)
I give you my heart,mind,body, and soul
I give you my love, for you to make me whole
I give you this promise, the promise to try
I give you each breath and the tears i cry
I give you my past, my future and NOW
I give you my thoughts and my hopes in this Vow
I give you my voice and the music i sing
I give you forever by accepting this ring
I give you my world all the pain and strike
I give you my hand and learn to share life
I give you this kiss and there words i say
â€œIâ€™ll Cherish you always as of this dayâ€
I give you my faith that these words are tru from now until the end i promise 2 you
9. Ifâ€¦Then (Anonymous)
If liking you was a mistake,
I would never be perfect.
If I had to sacrifice everything for you,
Everything would be gone in an instant.
If exercise was my obstacle from you,
Iâ€™d run a thousand miles.
If taking my life is what I had to do to have a moment with you,
Give me a knife and Iâ€™ll be Juliet.
If wishing everyday would get me you,
Iâ€™d wish every breathing moment.
If finding a genie meant being with you,
Iâ€™d search every lamp.
If finding a pot of gold meant youâ€™ll stay with me,
Iâ€™d go under every rainbow to find a leprechaun.
If Iâ€™d have to sacrifice all my privilege for you,
10. A Walk In The Meadows (Anonymous)
Starting the journey of thousand miles.
Walking through the meadows, trampling all the harrows
Holding each others hands, lost like denizens of pariah clans
As I looked at you , and you looked at me
I see your shinning face with mirth and glee
I drown in your fathomless black eyes
With no desire to reach the corner
Your silky hair flying like cloud flakes
Casting the fears asideâ€¦never losing each others sight
Making our lives a guiding starâ€¦shimmering and bright
No waverings no flounderingsâ€¦setting the path right
Still sensing your sweet fragrance
Relishing every single moment of romance
Valentineâ€™s Day Gifts 2012 : Top 10 gift ideas to impress your partner
With February 14th fast approaching, card shops and store fronts are rapidly turning red with heart-shaped reminders of the most romantic day of the year.
â€œValentineâ€™s Day comes with a great deal of expectation and stress. If you havenâ€™t been together very long, finding an appropriate gift can be difficult, while if youâ€™re married or in a long-term relationship, thinking up new ideas to impress your spouse or partner can sometimes feel like a chore.â€
â€œWhile not all our ideas are suitable for all couples, weâ€™ve tried to offer gift ideas that vary from inexpensive to expensive, and from friendly to more intimate.â€
Any jewellery is a welcome gift, but to be in the number one spot, it has to be the ultimate item of jewellery for Valentineâ€™s Day â€“ the diamond engagement ring. After all, valentineâ€™s day will be the perfect opportunity for those who are considering proposing to their girlfriend (or boyfriend, for that matter).
2. A romantic weekend in Paris
Or a romantic weekend anywhere for that matter! A trip to New York, Prague, London or a secluded place in the country would be equally welcome. Itâ€™s getting away together that really matters. It is worth remembering that the little extra touches such as flowers, Valentineâ€™s balloons, chocolates or champagne in the room on arrival, will make all the difference.
3. An experience day for two
An experience day for two can be a great surprise. â€œBook something that theyâ€™ve always wanted to do, such as drive a Ferrari or jump out of a plane. While the activities might not be romantic; the fact that youâ€™ve made their dream come true, certainly is,â€ comments Sophie Baxter from Big Fat Balloons.
4. A romantic meal at your favourite restaurant
No Valentineâ€™s Day gift list would be complete without a romantic meal at a favourite restaurant. But itâ€™s the little touches that can make this gift extra-special. It is beat to book well in advance and request a table in a secluded corner. A bottle of their favourite wine or some champagne will make the evening more exciting.
5. Champagne and chocolates
While not the most original idea, champagne and Belgian chocolates are still a welcome gift. Presentation is key. Having them delivered to to the recipient home or work or making sure they are wrapped beautifully will make your Valentineâ€™s gift feel more special.
6. A huge bouquet of flowers
Itâ€™s easy to add a twist to this traditional Valentineâ€™s gift by ordering the recipientâ€™s favourite flowers and colours. As every month has a special flower, do some research and include the flower that relates to his or her birthday in the bouquet.
7. A teddy bear
Everyone needs a big cuddle from time to time, no matter their age.Those who canâ€™t give a cuddle in person on Valentineâ€™s Day, can send a teddy bear to give their loved one a big hug. Sophie Baxter, Director at Big Fat Balloons explains â€œTeddy bears are a huge hit at this time of the year. Me to You teddy bears â€“ with love you messages are especially popular as customers can find a bear to suit most recipients.â€.
8. An evening to yourself
Couples with children often find the most romantic thing they can do is spend time alone together. Arranging for a relative or friend to have the kids overnight and enjoying an evening together can make for a special Valentineâ€™s Day.
Even for those who donâ€™t have children, an evening in can be equally romantic. They could cook a special meal for the two or for a complete break, order a takeaway.
9. A movie night in
Valentineâ€™s Day doesnâ€™t have to mean going out and spending lots of money; why not stay in and have an intimate date for two. A few red and white glow in the dark illoom balloons will be ideal to create a romantic atmosphere. Instead of going out to the cinema, why not recreate a movie theatre at home with a romantic film and snuggle up together in your very own back row,n.
10. A romantic walk
Weather dependent, a walk can be a great way to spend time together with no distractions other than the beauty of the surroundings (and each other!).
Itâ€™s worth remembering that on Valentineâ€™s Day, itâ€™s the thought that counts. So the most important thing this Valentineâ€™s Day, is for couples to remember to let each other know how much they love the other!
