Are you looking for ideas on how to create the best romantic mood this Valentine’s Day? You know what I mean. Candles, chocolates, fancy drinks, soft cushions to snuggle into. Check out my ideas on how to get in the mood for love this Valentine’s Day.
Set the scene at home.
What sort of Valentine’s Day celebration are you creating? Maybe you want to recreate the spa at home. You can easily do this with the Apothecary Time For You Gift Set from M&S. It contains everything you need for a romantic spa at home, whether you share it with someone else or simply indulge in a little pampering.
Maybe you are planning a romantic movie night at home. Then you need luxury velvet cushions, blankets to snuggle under, and low lighting to enhance the sexy mood. If the weather is still cold, you could use an electric blanket and get cosy.
Make your room smell nice.
Scent is important to me, and I’m always complaining to my husband when he comes home from his smelly job and brings the stink into our home. I use a lot of scented candles! There are some that are perfect for the Valentine’s Day mood, and I personally recommend Woodwick Candles. They smell gorgeous, they last for ages, and they make a crackling sound that makes for a perfect romantic atmosphere.
Maybe you aren’t so keen on using candles. Then you would benefit from a home fragrance hamper that contains reed diffusers to make your room smell nice. These will bring the home spa experience to life in your living room or bedroom!
Candles are not just about smelling nice. They add to the atmosphere in your room, so choose your candle colours accordingly. Red is associated with romance, green can promote healing, purple is good for mental health, or you can choose a colour changing candle that will give you something to focus on when you need to quiet your mind.
Wear the perfect sexy outfit.
Who likes to dress for the occasion? Me! Valentine’s Day gives us a great excuse to try on some sexy lingerie and step out of our everyday “vanilla” persona. If you are not ready to go all out, keep it simple and wear something you feel comfortable in. Your partner(s) might appreciate the “less is more” attitude in this scenario.
Maybe you are having a proper date night, in which case you need a cocktail dress or an outfit that you want to be seen wearing. Go on, try something different. You’ll be amazed at what it does for your confidence!
Share some tasty food and drink.
If you are setting the table for a Valentine’s Day meal, you could make it extra special with champagne flutes or fancy wine glasses. Even if it is just another weekday meal for you, the small touches can make a big difference to your partner(s). You could serve up a personalised mug of tea when they get home from work and have some luxury Valentine’s Day chocolate ready to share.
Take care of yourself.
Maybe you are single this Valentine’s Day, and you just want to show yourself some love. After all, only we know what we truly expect in life. So why don’t we treat ourselves? You could start with some nice perfume that will relax you. Eat your favourite food, and if you don’t want to cook, just order a takeaway. Watch something that makes you laugh, read your favourite book, relax in your favourite chair. Self-love is the way to go!
