Valentine’s day is less than a month away and you’ve probably already decided how you you want to celebrate it with your loved one. You may want to pop the question or if it’s too early for that, you may just want to spend a good day with him/ her. It’s a day of love so definitely everything should be perfect. For your perfect day, we’ve got some perfect ideas. Here’s a list of ideas you can choose from, to make your day of love extra special.

1. Just The Two Of You

A candle light dinner at a restaurant or some drinks at the bar is something you might have already done many times. It’s time for something new, something that’s more intimate, romantic and involves just the two of you so that you can be your true self on that special day. You can book a hotel or luxury holiday villas in Cape Town,  where you can spend the entire day cuddled up with each other, watching movies, talking, enjoying some wine and chocolates. Nothing is more romantic and special than just spending the entire day with each other in a beautiful place.

2. Impromptu Road Trip

How about surprising your loved one with a surprise road trip? Driving on beautiful country roads, listening to your favourite tunes, holding hands and just getting away from the hustle bustle of the city, doesn’t that sound like the perfect valentine’s day celebration? You can even include a surprise gift at the end of the trip when you reach your destination to make it extra special. Your partner is going to love getting away from the city with you and it will be a memorable trip, one that he/ she will remember for life.

3. Take a Trip Down The Memory Lane

How about going back to the first place you met, at the same time and preferably in the same clothes (if you can)? Recreate the first date as much as you can, tell each other about the first impressions you had and talk till late in the night. This will be a nice trip down the memory lane, bringing back all fond memories and it will bring the two of you closer.

4. A Movie Night

How about booking an entire movie theatre and watching your loved one’s favourite movie while cuddling with each other? You both will get the privacy, the experience of watching your loved one’s favourite film on the big screen and also a great celebration of valentine’s day. You can get all the favourite snacks of your loved one and end the day with some drinks and a romantic dinner.

5. Scavenger Hunt

Just giving a gift to your partner on valentine’s day is old news, it’s time to make the gifting process more interesting. Organise a scavenger hunt around town and make things interesting and challenging for your partner. Leave clues around town for your partner to find, riddles to solve and the ultimate clue should be to the gift.


The main aim of valentine’s day should be to spend time with each other and let your partner know how much you care about and love them. It’s important that whatever you plan, it should consist of spending good quality time with each other. It doesn’t matter how much money you spend on making that day special for your partner, what matters is that you be there with your partner that day and make some fond memories. If you are far away from your partner on valentine’s day, write a poem or letter and send them with chocolates and flowers. Your partner will like nothing better than to be reminded of how much you love him/ her even when you’re far away.
