We asked some of our favourite romance authors (and general romance experts) to describe their idea of a perfect Valentine’s Day date!
A special dinner hubby and I have prepared together, then watching a favourite movie of ours and a nice bottle of wine and a great chat is the perfect evening for us.
April 25th. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist that terrible Miss Congeniality joke.)
My ideal Valentine’s Day date would take place in total seclusion – an island somewhere with so few people around it’s almost deserted – no queues for restaurants, no hassles with parking, no mood-killing background music. Just me and my partner spending the day exploring, swimming, reading and relaxing followed by a sunset dinner and a night under the stars.
One that lasts a lifetime! Truly. Oh, that we all find someone who believes that being thoughtful and kind, washing the dishes without being asked, giving foot rubs, kisses, and I love yous as often as humanly possible should be a daily occurrence, and not just one day of the year.
A romantic dinner (that I didn’t have to cook!) preferably with candles and champagne and no phones.
Going out for a romantic dinner with my gorgeous husband.
Spend quality time together. Put down the phone. Turn off Netflix.
It’s the little things. A hidden note. A cup of tea. A hug.
The element of surprise. A gift. A dinner. A book.
Location. Location. Location. Visit a favourite place. Visit a new place.
Make every day Valentine’s Day.
