5 Cosy Valentines candles, gifts & date ideas for him and her
Romantic Valentine's Day 2024: Cosy Gifts and Date Ideas for Couples
With Valentine's Day approaching, it's the perfect time to think about some cosy gifts and date night ideas for this special day. Whether you've been together for a few weeks or a few decades, nurturing the spark can be of the most challenging, yet important parts of a relationship. It definitely can be done, but it requires some work and mutual effort from both partners. Whether you're after a bit of fun or something more romantic, I've got some lovely gift ideas that will make this Valentine's Day memorable for both you and your partner.
1. Personalised Valentine Candle
Will you choose naughty or nice personalised candle? Imagine a candle with a funny or sweet message, and his or her name on it. Take a look at our Valenties candle collection and choose between a playful naughty message that lights up the evening, or a heartwarming one that shows your love. It's a unique gift that's sure to be a hit, it will make a lovely Valentines gift for him!
2. Cooking Together:
Turn your kitchen into a lovely date spot and cook a delicious and nourishing dinner together. In our house, one of us leads the cooking while the other helps out. It's a great way to have fun and bond, without getting in each other's way. Cooking together can be a real joy if you organise it right.
3. Card / Board Game Night:
At first, when my husband suggested playing a card game, I thought it was a really lame idea... until I started playing. I got hooked and never again refused to play against my husband. Games like Scrabble, Monopoly, or Jenga can bring out a playful side and add a bit of competition to your date that can spice things up later in the evening. It's a great way to spend quality time together and enjoy some laughs.
4. Classic '80s Movie Night:
For a bit of nostalgia, why not watch an '80s classic? Films starring the likes of Jean-Claude Van Damme or Bruce Willis are perfect for a trip down memory lane. Do you remember when your parents would send you to your room because of the steamy scenes (and lots of shooting)? Well, now you're the parents and watching something like "Die Hard" can be a great fun, especially with the old-school effects, cringe scenes and sweet love story, that make these movies still enjoyable in 2024!
5. Traditional Romantic Evening:
Last but not least, never underestimate the power of a classic romantic date night. Once the kids are tucked in, why not have a dinner lit by candles, with soft music playing in the background? It's a time-tested recipe for a night filled with conversation, cuddles, and connection. Dress up, feel fabulous, and enjoy each other's company in the comfort of your own home.
These are just some of my own tested ideas to make your Valentine's Day special. We should show each other love and appreciation all year round, but it's nice to go a little extra from time to time, and Valentine's Day gives us a great opportunity for it. Have a fantastic Valentine's Day!
