I am delighted to welcome my dear friend, and author extraordinaire, Victoria Blisse,to my site today to share some fantastic Valentine ideas!- Over to you Victoria…
I love Valentine’s day but it seems to get more commercial as time goes on. At casa de Blisse we tend to keep our budget low and get each other things that really show we care. They’re the ones that make the best impact. If you’re struggling to think of cheap but good pressies, I’m here to help.
This is a classic! Everyone loves music and every couple has at least a handful of songs that remind them of each other so collecting them together and you’ve got a guaranteed present with heart. A thoughtful And it will only cost you the price of a blank cassette or CD or a little USB drive if you’re going all MP3 and modern and stuff. Much better than some commercial collection that you have to shell out a small fortune for right?
Write a love letter.
People don’t write much anymore. Take the time to pick up a pen and some lovely paper and write to your dearly beloved.
When choosing a pen to write your love letter with make sure it is full of ink and isn’t going to run out on you at any moment! Writing in colour is always sweet but bear in mind that poison pen letters are often written in red and it can be seen as quite an angry and harsh colour.
When you sit down to write your letter be in a relaxed state of mind. It might help to have a photo of your lover or some other memento to look at for inspiration. Don’t force it just write how you feel. It doesn’t need to be Shakespearian in its grandness; the whole idea of a love letter is that it comes from the heart. If all you want to write is “I love you with all my heart” then that’s all you need to write. If you are more inclined to go on for a few pages then do so. Write as much or as little as feels right.
Content wise try to keep to your own words. If you quote someone else, give them credit for it. It is not going to impress your dearly beloved if they find the heartfelt letter they received was actually composed by some dead guy to his wife several centuries before! Again I stress the most important point; a love letter is from the heart. Be sincere and true to your feelings and give your lover something they can keep to remind them of you.
Yes, it is a little cheesy but writing out a little slip of paper which entitles your lover to something special is a way to make the Valentine’s fun last a while.
*An hour long all over body massage.
*Butterfly kisses to be placed wherever your lover wants them!
*A meal cooked by you and the washing up done by you too.
*A night of passion!
*Acting out a kinky fantasy of their choosing.
If your loved one is going to be in work/away for some or all of the big day then this is a way to remind them of you. Take a sexy photo, whatever you want to do but remember if your partner’s at work they might get into trouble for viewing incredibly explicit photos! You can email or send your pic via text and I know your loved one is going to be thrilled by it!
Buy them a book
Preferably one of mine. Well you knew it was going to come up in the end. But seriously, a book is always a great present. Buy a paperback, second hand is fine as long as that book is one that will thrill your partner. Purchase them an ebook or two and load them onto their ereaders. The gift of a good story is always one of the best you can give.
I hope I’ve helped you come up with some ideas for your presents! Here’s a couple of Suggestions if you fancy buying your sweetheart (or yourself) a bit of Blisse this February.
In Paperback pick up Tempting Rendezvous. http://victoriablisse.co.uk/books/tempting-rendezvous
Curvy single mum Leanna is waiting for a man, not just any man.He has to be handsome, intelligent, funny and dominant. Enter Joe, he’s a masterful business man who brooks no nonsense and who punishes Leanna in just the way she needs, just the way she likes.
He appreciates her curves and uses every excuse to get his hands on them! Passion sparks between the couple, Naughty liaisons and public games all play to their deepest desires but can their love blossom? Will Joe give up his workaholic lifestyle and Can Leanna learn to trust another person with the most important thing in her life-her child?
And my latest ebook offering, Literally Bitten:
Books brought them together, blood lust binds them, but can her puritanical father pull them apart?
Lily loves fiction and has done since she was a child. It was her escape from the harsh reality of life being brought up by just her over-protective dad. Tom only ever reads textbooks, claiming that there’s enough to fascinate in this world and that he has no need to read about pretend places. But when he walks into Lily’s book shop he finds out they have a lot more in common than he first thought.
When the young couple take a trip to the famous vampire and human bar, The Point, Lily gets a shock. Her estranged father is there as part of a Purity protest; he is violently opposed to her, Tom and anything that the cult calls unclean. Which is just about anything fun.
Can Lily and Tom overcome these prejudices and their own inexperience to find love that will last forever?
A huge thank you to Victoria for visiting today! What brilliant ideas for Valentine’s day! I’m going to leave this page open for a while to see if my husband fancies giving it a read.
