Valentine’s Day is only a few weeks away. For many this means flowers, chocolates and a romantic dinner for two, but if this isn’t your idea of fun that doesn’t…

There are so many thoughtful ways you can show the one you love how much they mean to you and you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Sometimes the sweetest gestures are the simplest. Here are some of our most romantic ideas to show them you care.
You don’t need to spend hours on a piece of poetry, just a few heart-felt lines straight from the heart will be treasured always.
Music is so romantic, the sound can set the mood while the lyrics will make a statement for you. Give your lover a special album or dedicate a meaningful song to them.
You don’t have to take your loved one out for an expensive meal. Nothing could be more romantic than a lovingly home-cooked meal. Go for aphrodisiac foods and eat by candle light.
Get some pretty lingerie on and perform a striptease as you take it off. Frilly undies could leave a lasting impression on him, while silk shorts would be a lovely surprise for her.
Buy a romantic DVD you know he’ll love and watch it together in the dark with a box of chocolate love hearts and a bottle of bubbly.
Get some lovely massage oil and treat your loved one to a sensual massage. Who knows what could happen next?
There’s nothing quite like breakfast in bed, brought to you by the one you love. Make it special by giving him/her their favourite foods with a special twist such as scrambled eggs with smoked salmon on fresh crusty bread, or croissants with butter and jam and a freshly brewed coffee. For lovers of kitsch, you can even print your love message on toast!
There’s nothing quite like a scented bubble scented candle-lit bath for a perfect end to this most romantic day of the year. Get some chocolates, pick a favourite bubble bath oil for both of you, and get some candles, lie back and relax!
