Couples on the Clock: How to Create Magical Moments in Valentine’s Week Despite Busy Lives
Valentine’s Week is a time to celebrate love, but for busy couples, it can also be a time of stress trying to fit romantic gestures into their packed schedules. However, you need not worry as even the busiest of couples can make each day of Valentine’s Week special with a bit of creativity and time management. Here’s how to keep the flame of love burning bright, despite staying on the go –
7th February: Rose Day
Busy in back-to-back meetings? No problem. A bouquet of roses can be ordered online and delivered to your partner’s workplace or home. The ultimate way to start the Valentine’s week celebration! Besides, it’s a sweet gesture that says ‘I’m thinking of you,’ even when you are on the go.
8th February: Propose Day
Take a moment in the morning to send a heartfelt voice note or video message that won’t take more than 5 minutes. It doesn’t have to be long; even a few seconds can be enough to leave your partner smiling all day. Later in the day, you can go down on your knees to propose the love of your life.
9th February: Chocolate Day
Why not order a box of gourmet chocolates as a Valentine gift to be sent to your partner or arrange a quick coffee break if you work close by? Share a piece and a moment together, no matter how brief.
10th February: Teddy Day
Gift a cute teddy bear with a personal touch. You can choose to record a message or attach a note to the teddy that your partner can keep on their desk or bedside. It’s a cuddly reminder of your affection that they can hug even when you’re unable to catch up due to your busy schedule.
11th February: Promise Day
Make a promise that’s meaningful to both of you. Perhaps commit to a future date night or promise to always kiss each other goodbye. Send an e-card or a text with your promise that your partner can look back on.
12th February: Hug Day
This one might require a bit of scheduling, but try to meet for a quick hug during the day. If you can’t physically be there, send a funny GIF or a picture of a hug. After all, it’s the smallest gesture that can bring a smile to your partner’s face.
13th February: Kiss Day
For THE day, you can choose to build anticipation! Send flirty texts throughout the day or a cute kiss emoji. Plan a call where you blow kisses to each other or share magical memories of your most memorable kisses.
14th February: Valentine’s Day
Finally, regardless of how busy you are on V-Day, make it a point to spend quality time together. Have breakfast in bed, enjoy a home-cooked meal or if you can’t avoid work commitments, plan a Netflix and Chill night. The key is to be present and enjoy each other’s company, even if it’s just for a short while. Don’t forget to get thoughtful but unique Valentine’s gifts too. It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small – just get your sweetheart something that would make him/her shed happy tears
Incorporating these small yet significant gestures into each day of Valentine’s Week can make your partner feel loved and valued, even when life gets busy. It’s not about grand gestures but the thought and effort you put into making each day special. So, use this Valentine’s Week as an opportunity to strengthen your bond by making time for love, no matter how occupied you two are.
