The advantage of being married is that you always have your beloved with you. Make the most of this advantage, and read here about some of the exciting ways to celebrate your first Valentine's Day after marriage.
Love letters always work! Especially after marriage because it is the last thing that your spouse expects. A love letter brings back romance in a very youthful and innocent way. You do not have to be a poet or a writer to pen down love letters. You just need to have a heart filled with love. If not a letter, then write small 'love notes'. Once you are done with the writing, find places to hide these notes, so that your spouse keeps finding them all day long. Hide a small note in the toothbrush stand, put one in the shaving or make up kit, and keep one in their lunch box. Make sure the way you deliver the notes is as special as that letter! Or if you aren’t so creative, a lovely scrapbook does all the work with your feelings pen down on it.
There is something about cooking that heightens the chemistry between couples. Perhaps the lovely aromas do the trick, or maybe it is the accidental touches and brushes that ignite the fire. Decide a menu comprising of your favourites. Knead the dough together, share a long kiss when you wait for the curry to boil or the microwave to beep. Have a few good laughs reminiscing about the funny moments in your life since marriage. The whole experience, right from the time you chop the veggies to the time you slurp dessert from the same bowl, makes you wish that the lunch lasts forever!
After a leisurely lunch, sprawl out in your living room and enjoy a great movie. Choose a romantic comedy; the combination of romance and laughter can be the best to stimulate your romantic bone. Talk while you watch the movie. Make analogies between scenes in the movie and moments in your life.
Towards dusk, put up a tent in your backyard or garden and pretend you are in a secluded forest or desert. Light candles, set a table and enjoy a moonlit dinner. Dance together. Do not forget the bottle of wine chilling in your refrigerator. Keep replenishing the wine glass and lose yourself in the romantic ambience. End the beautiful day by making a promise. Repeat your wedding vows and fall in love all over again.
Take a break from first-year dinner and family functions and spend your valentine’s day away from home, solely with your hubby. A staycation is ideal where you can book a fancy resort or a hotel in or around the city limit and enjoy some cosy alone time with each other. What’s a better way of celebrating the day of love than this?
You are not able to spend alone time with your partner as you stay with in-laws but you can definitely get your time inside the bedroom, right. It’s the perfect day to play out your sexual fantasies. Have a role play and put those handcuffs to use. You can make it a night to remember.
So, go ahead and have a romantic time with your newly-wedded partner this Valentine's Day. Let us know which idea best suited you as a couple and how was your day! Stay tuned with us for lot more ideas to celebrate your valentine’s day.
