2  Romance isn’t always defined by flowers, chocolates or a candle-lit dinner. Thoughtful gestures can also be romantic and speak volumes.

3  Translate I LOVE YOU or your special message into to a foreign language and write it on a note, card or a text. It’s playful and a little flirtation goes a long way!

4  Send a Valentines Card through the post. Even if you’ve been married for several years, buy a stamp and get your card delivered in the old-fashioned way. We all love it when the postman arrives with an unexpected card or letter that doesn’t come in a brown envelope! From witty to serious, Valentines cards are always welcomed and a simple way to show your affection. Don’t forget to make sure that it is  S.W.A.L.K.

5  Book an Experience Day or an adventure such as a Theme Park, something a little daring to excite. Statistics say that doing something thrilling will increase the heart rate and stimulate desire between you.

6  Say it with Chocolates. Mood enhancing Phenylethylamine (PEA) in chocolate is renowned for its euphoric effects and releases the hormones Norepinephrine and Dopamine.  Always opt for Quality rather than Quantity; ensure it’s a trusted brand and that the presentation is as fabulous as the chocolates themselves.
