Sweet Gestures Girls Actually Love on Valentine's Day
Smooth moves go a long way—promise!
(SPOT.ph) Guys, Valentine's Day doesn't have to be complicated. You might have something grand in mind to sweep your woman off her feet—and that's fine if you have the time and resources to do it. But remember: Even if she'll never admit it, she secretly loves the simple, cheesy stuff.
Serenade her—at work.
It doesn't matter if you're tone-deaf. Just get in there, do your thing, and wear your heart on your sleeve—yes, for all her co-workers to witness and envy. She might start cringing, but that will probably mean your Valentine's play is working.
Write her a sweet note.
When was the last time you hand-wrote a love letter for your woman? It's a dying practice in this age of texting and instant messaging. Don't overlook the simplicity of this act. Say something from the heart, and get it down on paper. And if you don't have any handy, you can always reach for a Cadbury bar.
This year, the packaging of the iconic chocolate brand features a space for you to write on and where you can pour out your emotions for your girl. She’ll be so touched, she'll treasure every word and won't want to throw the wrapper away. And the best part: Every time she reads your love note, she'll associate it—and you—with smooth, rich, and creamy chocolate. You win, sir!
Cook for her.
You may or may not be a whiz in the kitchen, but that's not the point. What you're really saying with a meal prepared by you is "I am at your service." Light a few candles on the dinner table and you're gold.
Go on a picnic.
This one requires a little bit more planning—picking the perfect spot, checking the weather forecast, putting a picnic basket together, getting a nice blanket—but she'll love the effort as much as being outdoors.
Drive to the top of a mountain or hill, windows down, and let the cool air flow into the cabin while playing her favorite tunes. When you get to your spot, have a blanket ready, lay it out over the hood, and just gaze into the galaxy with her.
Attend a public Valentine's Day event.
Just as long as it isn't obscene, girls love mushy public displays of affection. And where better to show your true feelings for her than at a Valentine's Day event? You can visit Bonifacio High Street on February 14 for #SayItWithCadbury: Love Out Loud Valentine's gathering. It's complete with romantic acoustic music, an interactive wall where participants can profess their love on a large LED wall, and Cadbury's Love Arc installation, where couples can pose for a sweet memento.
