Last minute Valentine’s Day vacation

Give a short trip or vacation gift for a later date

You may not have time to book a hotel until Valentine’s Day, but since February 14 falls on a Monday anyway, your better half might not have had the day off anyway. Instead, book the coming weekend or in a few weeks and catch up on all the romance. A spa hotel or even a short trip to one of our neighboring countries or even a city break is a great idea after all.

And what do you do during the day itself?

Plan a romantic TV or movie night to celebrate the day of lovers

What hobbies do you have? Do you like to take pictures? Then take a walk to a place where there are beautiful things to photograph (e.g. a waterfall or a castle). Cinemas were closed for a long time because of Corona. Did your partner perhaps miss a movie due to this that he would have liked to see? Maybe you can find a DVD in a hurry or it is available at a streaming provider in the meantime. Then you could host a movie night at home.

The perfect last minute Valentine’s Day – Nice gestures on the holiday.

Romantic bath

Prepare a romantic bath with Valentine's decorations and champagne

If you want to make short-term gifts yourself, you can also opt for nice gestures and surprise your sweetheart with a little something for Valentine’s Day. In the evening, decorate the bathroom with candles, rose petals and other things, provide a bottle of champagne or wine and glasses, provide pleasant music and prepare a bath. This, of course, you can enjoy together. However, you could also decorate the bedroom .
