With the holidays behind us and Valentine’s Day before us, it’s not too early to be thinking of fun Valentine’s Day ideas and clever gifts for the love in your life. Check out the following ideas:
- Make a Mission Impossible recording that says something like: “Your assignment, should you choose to accept it… is to meet a handsome, dark-haired stranger for a romantic dinner at the _____ _____ Restaurant tomorrow evening at 7 pm. I suggest you take on the role of a mysterious and ravishing beauty.” Feel free to give more hints and tips, then leave the recording in an MP3 player with a note that reads, “Play Me.” Rent a Mission Impossible movie that you can watch together for after dinner.
- Kidnap him! Blindfold him. Drive him around until he’s thoroughly lost. Then take him to his favorite sports bar, sports game, favorite restaurant or maybe a romantic inn.
- Hire a limousine to pick up your husband at work. Send the driver inside to get your husband. Be waiting in the back seat of the limo, dressed in your finest lingerie, sipping champagne or wine and listening to “your song.”
- Cook your love’s favorite meal and greet him at the door when he comes home with a glass of his favorite beverage, wearing only a flirty apronand a pair of sexy heels.
- Pretend you are both royalty. Rent or borrow sparkly jewelry, dress up, then speak to each other in a British accent throughout the evening, followed with a viewing of a James Bond movie.
Express Your Love
