4 Tips for an unusual Valentine’s Day
§ Be creative and surprise your sweetheart with a totally unique, one-of-a-kind, handmade Valentine’s Day card. Use only your imagination, cardboard, glue, glitter and a pair of scissors like in the olden days to create your masterpiece.
§ Forget about cooking a lavish meal – it’s so much more fun to build gourmet sandwiches with slices of cold meat, gherkins, cheese and whatever strikes your fancy. Grab a bottle of your favourite wine and head to a safe picnic spot.
§ Play Scrabble or Monopoly or go for a walk – be silly, make each other laugh and spend happy time together.
§ Present your love with a hand drawn ‘I-owe-U’ voucher, promising to do something nice and thoughtful for him or her soon.
Enjoy a very special and romantic Valentine’s day with the person you love.
