We have officially entered Valentine's week, and we hope you have started planning things for your partner. But just in case you didn’t, then don’t freak out as we have curated a long list of ideas that will leave your partner in awe!

To surprise your partner, grand gestures aren't always necessary and affordable. The easy way out is to buy chocolate desserts for Valentine's Day- but that too, has to go along with some creative ideas. This year, we want you to surprise your partner with something thoughtful and unexpected, no matter your budget. Here are 21 easy-peasy ideas to spark your creativity-

Low-key and Lovable:

  1. Leave love notes hidden around the house: Start their day with mini love messages hidden next to their coffee cup, inside the laptop bag or on the breakfast table. To make it even more interesting, you can keep cute little heart-shaped cakes.
  2. Recreate your first date: Relive the magic of your first encounter. Go to the same place where you met for the first time or visit a place that you both love.

  3. Breakfast in bed: Make a special breakfast, but make sure to add lovey-dovey elements like a toast cut out using a heart-shaped cookie cutter. To add the extra punch, keep Valentine special cookies on the side.

  4. Movie night with a twist: Instead of the usual rom-com, choose a movie from their favorite genre or one you haven't seen together. Make popcorn, light some candles, and cuddle up!

  5. Board game bonanza: Dust off those dusty board games and have a friendly or not-so-friendly competition!

  6. DIY spa night: Give each other relaxing massages with scented oils, and pamper yourselves with face masks.

  7. Stargazing under the moonlight: Spread out a blanket in your backyard, download a stargazing app, and enjoy the beauty of the night sky together. To make it more special, prepare two cups of warm tea or coffee and sip together while you gaze.

  8. Romantic scavenger hunt: Leave simple clues around the house or outdoors leading to a special surprise, like a picnic basket or a heartfelt gift.

  9. Create a personalized playlist: Compile songs that remind you of each other, your favourite memories, or inside jokes. Share it and dance the night away!

  10. Cook their favourite meal: Put on some music, light some candles, and recreate their favourite dish from their childhood. A meal is incomplete without a sweet treat, so order for him or her Valentine's day special desserts like heart-shaped cakes and chocolates.

Creative and Thoughtful:

  1. Write a poem or song: Even if you're not a poet or musician, your partner will appreciate the effort and the sentiment you put through your creation.
  2. Learn something new together: Try learning something new, you can bake together by watching youtube videos, you can try learning a contemporary couple dance moves- which otherwise you would’ve never tried.
  3. Volunteer for a cause they care about: Keep a list of charity organisations ready- it can be online or offline. Donate together for a cause you think can make a difference.
  4. Plan a weekend getaway: Do some research and plan a gateway- because even a one-night staycation at a local hotel can break the routine and add some excitement to your week.
  5. Frame a special memory: Choose a photo that captures a happy moment, frame it beautifully, and present it with a loving message.
  6. Plant a tree together: Sow a seed and together- this will symbolize your growing love, and will create a lasting reminder of your Valentine's Day celebration.
  7. Paint the room red- Go a little over the top; arrange red roses, red balloons, and special red desserts in your room.
  8. Make his or her favourite playlist- Create a special playlist of songs that your partner likes. Play those tracks over dinner or early in the morning during breakfast.
  9. Craft a personalized scratch card- If you love art and craft, then it’s time to unleash your inner artist. Instead of regular cards, create a DIY scratch-off adventure card! It's a unique and suspenseful way to unveil your surprise trip. Gather some cardstock, paint, and sprinkle your creativity.
  1. Dress up- Choose a dress that your partner loves to see you in. Even if you are not stepping out, slip into that dress and celebrate at home by ordering some best valentine's day desserts.
  1. Plan a treasure hunt- Present your loved one with a beautiful gift, but with a twist! Let your partner do some hard work before they receive their special gift. Strategize the game in such a way that your partner will receive small gifts and lovey-dovey desserts on every milestone he or she crosses.

We hope this blog helps you with ideas! Chop-chop, start working on these ideas! On this lovely note, all we would say is embrace romance and make this Valentine’s Day special with Love and Cheesecake.
