Whether you've been together for years or have a first date coming up on the day itself, Valentine's Day can be a very exciting (or nerve-wracking) time!
Each Valentine’s Day, there are endless articles online listing ways to impress your date on Valentine’s day. Most of them focus on fine-dining restaurants. Why not go for something more unique this year? If you want to make sure the love is still alive between you two, it's always good to keep your relationship spicy and interesting — try these 5 tips that will help you do just that!
1. Try sustainable gifting (Give a gift that lasts)
Impressing your date on Valentine's Day is a lot more than just getting them the right gift. It's about making it a memorable experience, too—and that starts with what you give them.
We're not saying you should go for the cheap stuff and leave out the card, but if you're looking for something that lasts and want your date to feel special, try sustainable gifting! It's not just good for the planet—it's also good for your wallet.
The most important thing to consider when choosing a gift is that it has to be valuable and compliments their interest. We know it sounds like a no-brainer, but it can be easy to forget when you're swept up in the excitement of the love season. That's why we recommend giving dessert lovers out there a gift they can use every day: our Heart-Shaped Plate!
They're not only lovely, but they're also versatile and environmentally friendly! The plate can be used as a durable jewelry plate and is made entirely from sustainable materials and produced in 100% Food Grade Melamine that are manufactured with the highest quality in Malaysia. It's food-safe, lightweight, and offers sustainable options.
2. Give the gift of a good meal
Valentine's Day is the perfect time to show love. You don't just get a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates—try to make an extra effort!
Cooking is a great way to show someone you care—and it can be even more special when it's done with someone else in mind.
If you really want to impress your date with your cooking skills, try making something that's simple but also delicious- partnered with an elegant dinnerware to finish the presentation! Maybe try something like lasagna or chicken piccata? Don't worry if it doesn't turn out perfectly—if anything goes wrong, just laugh about it later!
Don't forget about dessert! The most romantic dessert is always chocolate cake (or cupcakes) plated perfectly in our heart-shaped dessert plate with options to choose from! (pink, red, swan and rose), so make sure you have some on hand for after dinner!
3. A simple note that speaks of your feelings
If you're looking for a way to stand out, consider giving them something that shows off your creativity and makes them feel special.
A simple note that speaks of your feelings (and makes them laugh) is a great way to go. You can also take it up a notch and create an origami heart or some other kind of art project that shows them how much they mean to you.
Make sure it’s handwritten! If you type something up on your computer, she might think that it was done in a hurry or that you just printed out an email and signed your name at the bottom. Handwritten notes are always more special than printed ones!
This will show them that you put in effort and care for them, which will make any date feel special.
4. Gift the Sweetest Moment
Love is in the air—and we have the sweetest ideas for impressing your date on Valentine's Day!
You're going to want to make sure your gift is the sweetest hour of her life. She'll be expecting some chocolates or flowers, but she'll be blown away by something a little more special: rose bouquet cupcakes!
This classic treat from Sweetest Moments is sure to make her heart melt. Their rose bouquet cupcakes come best with our season of love gift set! And best of all? They're delivered right to your door! Just use the code SWEETESTFEB2023 upon checkout to get free delivery.
5. Don’t forget the flowers!
Don't forget to send flowers! They're a traditional way of showing someone that you care about them. But wait, don't panic—we know what you're thinking: "What am I going to do? Flowers are so cliché!" And we agree, they totally are.
But if you're looking for something more sustainable than fresh flowers that will wilt and die within hours of being picked, consider some alternatives. Handcrafted dried flowers or hand-crocheted bouquets are both beautiful and long-lasting (and there are plenty of tutorials online if you'd like to make your own), The Plate Story also has their own artificial soap flowers on their season of love packaging which also makes perfect table setting decoration!
If you're not into crafting yourself but still want something special, consider ordering from a local artisan who makes their own dried bouquets. Not only does this help support local businesses, but it also means your flowers will be unique and one-of-a-kind!
Above all, A sustainable valentine date celebration isn’t really more expensive than an average date, it just requires some thought. We hope that this guide has been helpful to you in making sure that your Valentine’s day is all it should be. If you follow along, you’re sure to get your Valentine impressed and delighted!
