Valentine’s Day, also known as the lover’s carnival, is for all the people who wish to commemorate love and show their fondness and affection towards someone, whom they are emotionally involved and connected with. Usually people, who are in a relationship or want to enter into one, celebrate this occasion. However according to me, it can be celebrated by anybody who is in a relationship and the relationship can be of a mother-daughter, mother-son, dad-daughter, friends, etc and age is no bar. There are different ways to approach it, but it is for everybody. It is celebrated on the 14th of February every year in many countries around the globe, where people spend time with their loved ones. So, good Valentine’s Day ideas are always a welcome thing during that time of the year.
There are many stories which are associated with this day. Some say that Valentine was a Christian priest, who was punished by a Roman Emperor – Claudius II for his teachings. Some say that Valentine was an Italian bishop and he was punished and thrown in the prison as he was doing things against the Roman laws of secretly marrying couples. While he was in the prison, he became close to the sailors daughter, and when he was about to die, he had written a letter to her which had the wordings ‘From your Valentine’. He had died on the 14th of February and thus this day is a dedication to him. This day is also known as the ‘Feast of Valentine’ and the celebrations begin 1 week ahead of the V-day. There are different days that are celebrated like the rose day – propose day – chocolate day – teddy day – promise day – hug day – kiss day, and then the V-day. It is also referred as the ‘Valentine Week’ and the rose day marks the start of it.
Cupid, who is known as a Roman God, is represented by the picture of a young lad with wings and a bow and an arrow, and it is known that cupid usually strikes when you get to meet the right person, the love of your life, with whom you would like to spend the rest of your life. There are some people who actually send anonymous letters or cards on this day as their good Valentine’s Day ideas to their much-loved.

Making it Big and Unusual
By and large on this day, many gifts and messages of love are exchanged between two people who love each other enormously. In fact, people start planning for this special occasion many days in advance to prepare with their unique Valentine’s Day ideas. Many women wait for this day and so it should be made sure that it is made unforgettable. It may not have to cost a fortune, but to make her feel special is of paramount importance.
Handmade greeting cards are one of the oldest and simplest ways of putting across oneself. Many people are not able to articulate themselves correctly and choose to pen down their thoughts and you never know, plain simple words also may do the work and create magic that no other way can do. Also, a handmade card all the time carries more weight and has an important effect than a purchased one.
A bunch of bright red roses or even a single red rose is also a traditional gift on the V-day. Every flower has got a language of its own and red rose symbolizes true deep love, warmth, and beauty. It is indubitably the most beautiful and attractive flower amongst all roses and is loved by each and every one. They are at times coupled with yellow roses which mean friendship and at times with white roses which mean genuineness, purity, and innocence. These are some of the romantic Valentine’s Day ideas that help many to express their love.
For couples, they can plan their own idealistic date. They can go for a candle light dinner to the same place where they met for the first time and spend a splendid evening together. They can also make hotel reservations, as change in the ambiance, surroundings is very much soothing. If time permits, one can also plan for a mini vacation which can be a converted into a Valentine weekend. This can be one of the good Valentine’s Day gifts that can be given to your dear one. In case, a getaway is not feasible for the two because of some reasons, this special calendar day can be celebrated at home only and can be made extraordinary. Giving a gift does not essentially stand for something tangible. Spending uninterrupted and valuable time with each other is a great gesture and has a lot of significance. Doing something unanticipated can surprise your beloved. I believe the key is to personalize your day to make it out of the ordinary for you and your partner and take pleasure and cherish the moments.
