Hi lovelies! As it's Valentines Day tomorrow, I thought this post would be an interesting one, as I'd love to hear your thoughts on this! Personally, I think that some of the best Valentines ideas ever are those that come from the heart (cheesy but true), so a romantic night in with all your favourite foods, rather than a fancy night out, a bunch of your favourite flowers rather than generic roses etc etc.
For me, my best ever Valentines Day was last year, I was working on Valentines Day and didn't have a lot of time to get ready before our night out and yet, I came home and Darren had bought me new perfume and a dress that he knew I'd been eyeing up, so that I didn't have to stress about getting ready for our meal. It was also a special one as I was working in a Primary School at the time and got lots of adorable hand written notes from the kids!
I can't say I've had a worst Valentines Day and I certainly wouldn't say you need to be with someone to have a fab day. Some of the best Valentines Days can be a girlie night in with your friends! I personally think you're going to have a rubbish day if you're sitting in moping about being single, because let's face it, it is just another day and there's no need to stress about having the perfect Boyfriend and bunch of roses on one day if it doesn't bother you too much the rest of the year.
I think there's too much pressure to get Valentines Day just right though and sometimes the worst ideas for Valentines day are those that are over-thought. Thinking you have to go for a fancy meal in a restaurant you don't feel comfortable in and that you must get the champagne chocolates that you don't even like just because they're in a heart shaped box, can ruin the day. If you want to really show your partner, friend or family member that you really care, it's better to find something you know they'll love, whether it's a fancy restaurant or ordering Dominos and watching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix.
For example, this gold spray painted dinosaur may be the worst gift ever for some (aka me), but if you're a dinosaur lover, then this is a seriously thoughtful present. Think Ross from Friends.
Something super sweet and thoughtful like this may be perfect for some people, but for others it may be far too sickly sweet and cringey. Personally I'd make a jokey version like '52 Reasons why I put up with your Sh*t' because I know my Boyfriend would find that much more fun and entertaining than something overly smushy!
And finally, definitely do not do this.
