Make your Valentines Day special

Posted by atreyee on February 9, 2009


Unlucky are those who are hit by the cupid bug in March, because for them, the ultimate day of expression, the Valentines Day, is almost a year away. Ah! Anyways, let’s concentrate on the present for now. It’s the sweet time of Valentines Day once again and the fragrance in the air is diffused with the scent of burning hearts. It’s a special day for those in love. Let’s take a synoptic view of a few doable which can make your valentine message special.


Short-city breaks – If budget is not a constraint, or at any rate, you have pursed up some moolah for the day, then you can go on a Short City Break. We will all vouch how a nice, virgin ambience makes us say things we had ourselves not conceived of and a lot of that turns out to be really pleasant. Think of jet-skiing on the Barbados beach or a cuddled up ride on Venetian gondola or just sometime together at place proximal to your home. The idea is peace and a conducive ambience.


A dinner for the belly and the heart – Valentines Day dinner calls for romantic ambience which is flushed with the theme of love. Add gastronomic delights served intermittently. Good food and a romantic aura pack quite a valentine punch together. It need not be a candle-light thing but remember not to cluster too many things. Easy flowing emotions with equally easy-flowing food and a touch of inebriation in form of soft sherry or champagne; you can’t get it better.


Say it with the magic of flowers – Valentines Day bouquets coupled with Valentines day greeting cards or Valentine shayari might not be the costliest things materially but their reach into the human heart is redoubtable. Say it with the rose and lilies, bougainvilleas and orchids and perhaps you will say them perfectly.  Not without anything is flower held synonymous with love itself.


The Valentines Day gift ideas also depend a lot on the inclination of your partner. An intellectual companion might be delighted with a creative poem, a self-created Valentine card (complimented well with love letters and love quotes) or a well-expressed Valentine message while the chirpy little doodles might wish for something along the gadget, gizmo or attire line. Soft toys still rule a lady’s heart and if you have the financial gumption then you can’t still beat a diamond. Time can’t whither the statement” Diamonds are forever”.

Innovative ideas for a happy weekend

Posted by atreyee on December 18, 2008

Quick weekend getaway: Surprise your partner by inviting his/her friends and heading off for a quick weekend getaway. Don’t worry too much about the place. It’s the soul that matters more than the place. If you experience that extra romantic spark igniting within you, then step a bit ahead and present yourself as a dessert package with a simple bouquet (try out something other than those traditional rose bouquet; orchid can be a good option) and 2-3 verses of a mutually favorite song (believe me, it works even better than a live Britney or Enrique concert).


Have you been longing to have a great weekend with your partner since ages?  Why don’t you rack your brains for a creative breakthrough? Well, it’s of no use now as weekend is just round the corner. Instead try out these simple tricks below and have a happy weekend for sure.

Bottle message: Now for those who are wondering what on earth this is, it is even simpler than you can imagine. Choose a wide necked bottle and fill half of it with a favorite drink of your partner’s choice and then explore a bit of the creative edge within you. Either you can tie a bow around the neck of the bottle and attach a lovely message in the ribbon or you can serve the bottle on a plate decorated with flower petals, along with a heart-shaped message hanging from the cork.


Choco-fantasy session: You do not always need a reason to run a knife through your favorite chocolate pool. Simply get your favorite flavor with a ‘Happy Weekend’ message and indulge in some ‘creamylicious’ moments.

Big-day bash: If it’s your beau’s birthday or your marriage anniversary, be prepared to shell out quite a lump sum. These are the most precious tags that would sparkle throughout your memory album forever. You can arrange for a family get-together and make sure that every member has something to say or enact. If you want it to be a cozy affair, then you can take your partner out for a movie and surprise him/her with a birthday or anniversary message on the screen before the movie begins, or at the interval.

Have a great weekend ahead!
