    Valentines Day Ideas - The Ultimate Guide 2021

    Valentines Day Ideas


    Valentines Day Ideas


    Whether you are in a long term relationship or have just met an amazing woman, it’s safe to say thatsome men need a little help when it comes to planning Valentine’s Day....and that is perfectly ok.

    From a woman’s perspective, I get it, I am personally guilty of saying something along the lines of “oh it’s ok if we don’t do anything” But in reality, I want a really good surprise. So yes, I will admit, women (not all women) can sometimes say one thing but secretly mean the other, the gents just need to learn our language right? (no pressure) 

    So this Valentine’s Day, I have decided to create some ideas to take the guesswork out and give you some inspiration. You can then pick and choose how you see fit for your special lady. 

    Personally, I am the type of woman that LOVES a surprise, doesn’t have to be expensive, just the thought that counts...sounds cheesy right? But in all honesty, seeing a man try is the sweetest thing.

    If your woman is a mother like myself, I can say that showering her with appreciation will be a good idea. As a mother of little children, our time and effort for self-care quickly get pushed to the back as we are putting our children first. I can confidently say that if there is ever a way that makes me feel beautiful, I will take what I can get.

    I created my companyAruke with the intention of making women feel beautiful while in the comfort of their home. So I may know a thing or two about it. 

    Ok, so let’s get into some Valentine’s Day ideas….Covid has also been considered in these, so don’t stress, I’ve got you.

    Valentines Day Ideas


    1. Picnic - prepare it all, so all she has to do is enjoy it with you.
    2. Winery tour. 
    3. Gaze under the stars. Learn about the stars first or together by downloading the Google Sky Map, it will show you what stars you are looking at. Make the area really beautiful with candles, an outdoor rug, pillows, blankets, wine, cheeses, and other snacks.
    4. Dinner reservation that has a Valentine's Day theme.
    5. Road Trip to bushfire affected areas to support local restaurants (if you are in this type of location)
    6. Karaoke.
    7. Cooking class (either a go-to or online). Get some aprons and make it fun.
    8. Art class (some classes offer with wine included, there are also at home online options)
    9. Ice skating.
    10. Getting up early and driving to see the sunrise, coffee in hand. (If you have cold mornings, don’t forget a blanket to snuggle in together)
    11. Comedy show.
    12. Boat Ride (some have sunset dinner options).
    13. Salsa dancing class (online options also)
    14. If she is the one that cooks at home, turn your home into a restaurant, create the table arrangement (google for inspiration) and make her an incredible dinner and dessert. Don’t forget some background music and good lighting such as candlelight.
    15. Go to a museum.
    16. Do an Escape Room challenge.
    17. Volunteer together.
    18. Perfumery (create a scent together).
    19. Go hiking.
    20. Day Spa retreat together. 
    Valentines Day Gift Ideas


    1. A piece of luxury sleepwear, always a winning gift, check outAruke for a range of womens sleepwear designed by Australian designers. 
    2. Hot tip: I can confidently say that every woman I know is not a fan of love heart-shaped jewelry, yet men seem to go for that option.
    3. Homemade appreciation card - write her a letter, tell her how much you appreciate her and what you love about her.
    4. Lush bath products (they smell delicious and are handmade)
    5. StarDate Map, this is a personalized map of where exactly the stars were sitting on a particular date, for example, you could choose the date you first met or your anniversary.
    6. A year of compliments - get a jar and place handwritten compliments on them, 365 so each day she can take one from the jar and feel amazing. 
    7. Book her in for a day spa, facial, or massage.
    8. Adopt an orangutan through charity, your donation will help an orangutan of your choice, they are SSOOOO cute!

    11. Get her chart read by an amazing astrologist, I loveNatasha Weber andNadine Jane Astrology 
    12. Monogram cosmetics case
    13. L'occitane gift sets have beautiful body wash and body creams.
    14. A relaxation hamper, find a nice looking gift basket, and put together her favourites such as wine, chocolate, skincare, some good books in areas of her interest, foot soak, handwritten card. Anything you can think that she will love, put it in there. 
    15. Jump ontoEtsy and type in Valentine’s Day for her, a tonne of personalized ideas will show for you.
    16. If she likes crystals, Rose Quartz represents “unconditional love” 
    17. Hourglass candles are a great quality brand of candles, if she likes sweet smells, get the Tahaa Affair, it smells like chocolate.
