A Step for Love

The chaos of the holidays is now over.  But let us not forget that the day of cupid is fast approaching.  While many of us may still be putting away our holiday loot the holiday of love is just around the corner.  Perhaps you are waiting in baited anticipation for that little jewelry box.  But instead of making it about what you receive here are a few ways to make the day of love about both of you:

1.  Take this opportunity to take the pressure off your partner, tell him or her you are planning the evenings festivities.  Fill the night with your partners favorite things.  Cook his favorite meal or order his favorite in.  During dinner you have a playlist  filled with these great love songs: 

  1. Lips of An Angel – Hinder
  2. Rude Boy - Rihanna
  3. Thank God I Found You – Mariah Carey
  4. My Life Would Suck Without You – Kelly Clarkson
  5. Love Me If  You Can – Toby Keith
  6. Every Little Thing She Does is Magic – The Police
  7. All I Want is You – U2
  8. Whenever, Wherever – Shakira
  9. Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad – Def Leppard
  10. Heaven – Bryan Adams
  11. You Belong With Me – Taylor Swift
  12. Crazy Love – Michael Buble
Perfect song to finish the playlist with

Follow dinner up with a montage of his favorite movies, when the lights are out who knows what may happen.

2.   Have your honey meet you out for a couples massage.  While there, be sure to buy the lotion they use.  That way the next time you are inclined to use it your partner will be reminded of this intimate relaxing moment you shared together

3.  Give him an album of photos from a  photo shoot for his eyes only.  Many companies are now specializing in these boudoir photos.  Some to look into in the Chicago area :

4. Plan to act like kids.  Doing something carefree and void of holiday cliché will take the pressure off and you may find yourself valuing this more then that fancy dinner.  Perhaps tie on some rented shoes and bowl a few rounds, go a few rounds of air hockey at the arcade, or take each other on on the pool table.

Whatever you may do, remember the day is about celebrating your love.  It is not about what you do or don’t get but a time to remind that special person in your life how much you care.  Don’t put emphasis on the day being perfect just concentrate on your love for each other
