Music plays a significant role in every romantic setting and what better way to show your love than by creating a compilation CD for your loved one with all of the songs that remind you of them.
With the accessibility of audio technology, you could record a special message at the beginning or end of the CD that describes what they are about to hear or inject special messages in between songs that describe why that specific song reminds you of them and what they mean to you. Purchase printable CD covers from your local store and create a personalized cover for your CD. Add their name to it and the date and year, so that you can both remember the exact Valentine's Day in which it was given. You could even use the services of Kunaki.com for this.
The songs don't have to be just the regular old songs either. Create a more personalized version of your CD by including songs from movies you've watched together, or from your first date. What was the song that was playing on the radio when you had your first kiss? Your first dance? If you're married, include music from your wedding and/or from the birth of your children. Music is a part of all of our lives and it lives in the backdrop of our memories. Bring it to the forefront, show them you have been paying attention and give them a homemade gift that they will always remember. Consider slipping the CD in their car for a fun surprise and make sure to wrap it up in pretty red paper!
Another great Valentines Day idea is to have a bubble bath waiting for your partner when they get home from work. Adorn the four corners of the tub with scented candles and place some massage oils in a gift basket to use after you have both bathed. Purchase bath oils that will provide a relaxing and silky bath. This is the stuff that dreams are made of, and it's not only easy but affordable to set up.
Consider leaving your partner to soak and relax while you escape to set up a delicious meal. There's nothing better after a warm and relaxing bath than a hearty meal to finish the night off. Make sure to warm up your partner’s towel by throwing it in the dryer for a few minutes before he or she is ready to get out.
If it's later in the day, lead them into the bedroom where you have the traditional setting of flowers, chocolates, music and serenity, while you dance with them. All your partner wants on Valentine's Day is your attention, your acknowledgement, and of course, you. The best memories are always from the simple gestures of love and devotion, so don't over think it. Gaze deep into their eyes, giving them your full attention. Take your time with every little thing you do.
If your partner prefers showers, you can spice it up just the same. Opt for a nice, candlelit shower with music, candles or incense. You can have a lot of fun with this and it will be a night to remember.
