Much like men’s reaction to the sports tournaments, women see Valentine’s Day as an important celebration and with February being here again, every man in a relationship is running amok, buying flowers and planning for Valentine’s Day to make sure that their significant others feel loved and appreciated. This can prove to be challenging for men who yet to begin planning for the day and/or men who has trouble expressing their feelings in a more tangible way.
So let’s make things simple and memorable at the same time, as Simply Blooms helps you to make sure that everything can be done beautifully and in time.
Step 1: Plan Activities That She Likes
Try to remember and focus on the activities she may like. Has she always wanted to try ice-skating but never had the chance? Take her to Leisure Park Kallang. Is she an adorable musical nerd? Bring her to the Singapore Lyric Opera. Is she in love with fresh flowers? Go with her to the Flower Dome and/or buy her a bouquet of Valentine’s Day flowers with free delivery included.
Essentially, a man planning for Valentine’s Day should show his significant other that she is thought of and noticed throughout the year by surprising her and letting her know that the man she loves has been listening to her needs, even when it seemed like he was distracted. . Note that it’s the thought that counts so recklessly spending money on the most expensive gift in Singapore may be counterproductive.
Step 2: Order Take-Out and Food Delivery
If you waited too long to book a dinner place for Valentine’s Day, chances are many restaurants in Singapore would’ve already been fully booked. The alternative – ordering take-outs and/or get food delivery services – may seem less fancy, but it can be just as romantic. In addition to being able to stay in and get cozied up on the couch watching a romantic movie, ordering take-out can also show love and appreciation to your significant other in a delicate and more charming way. To begin, simply answer the questions below:
1) What is her favourite cuisine and/or restaurant?
2) What dessert does she like?
3) Is there a restaurant or dish that is special between you and your significant other? (e.g. – first dessert you shared, popcorn from the park you met, etc.)
Kicking thing up a notch, a person can make use of the flexibility that comes with ordering take-outs and/or using food delivery services to plan a special date. For example, a man can have the delivery man drop the food off at the beach where he proposed to his wife. He may also wish to set the place up like a restaurant – with fancy tablecloths, candles and if his budget allows, maybe even live music played by musicians.
The key, of course, is to design a personalised meal plan and show her that this day is planned specifically for her.
Step 3: Create a Romantic Playlist
Music sets the mood of the room so do remember to find out what music to play. For the songs to be played over dinner, do take step to make sure that the music is soft enough so that you can talk. Note that music can have other uses too. Does she like tap dancing? Better download some catchy tunes to add to your playlist. Does she like slow dancing? Soft, classical songs are the way to go. Additionally, one can do some research on his significant other’s favourite band or artist to create a playlist that she will love.
Step 4: Get Online Valentine’s Day Flowers with Free Delivery
Even the most practical woman can appreciate the beauty of fresh Valentine’s Day flowers. In fact, studies have shown that women are psychologically influenced by fresh flowers, and men are regarded as sexier when they are in the presence of real, fresh flowers.
Since fresh flowers require time to grow to full bloom and will wilt over time, it is crucial that the timing is perfect. The good news is, there are a number of online boutiques in Singapore that sell Valentine’s Day flowers and offer free delivery services to ensure that their Valentine’s Day flowers arrive at the best condition. Moreover, while physical stores may run out of Valentine’s Day flowers due to last-minute purchases, some online vendors like Simply Blooms may have stocks left as their flowers are made on demand, that is, the flowers are only cut from the fields when they are ordered. The delivery man will immediately take these flowers to the florists and once the flowers are wrapped, it will be sent to the address given.
It is also worth noting that Valentine’s Day flowers may be regarded as a clique so one should always go for Valentine’s Day flowers with a modern spin on it.
For example, Simply Blooms’ Magical Mystery series bundles the most beautiful flowers in an elegant box to surprise its recipients when the box is opened. It is, in its essence, a message of love safely tucked in an elegant box. Of course, there are also other ways to modernise this classical gift, such as pairing fresh Valentine’s Day flowers with matching plushies and creating unique combination of Valentine’s Day flowers to make a bouquet.
And voila, Valentine’s Day preparation is done. Good luck and happy Valentine’s Day.
