That Valentine’s day is all about grand gestures, is just a sweeping generalization.
For those who like it quiet and subtle, this holiday of love is your day to take a short halt from the daily regimented life.
Make rest and recreation as the order of the day.
Tuck in the bed, oversleep, wake up to an unhurried day ahead.
Say sweet nothings to each other, catch a movie on a laptop, get some pizza home delivered and stay close to each other.
Make it that day of the year, when you steer clear of all the day to day hassle to be truly there with your beloved.
Quality time is a luxury, make the most of it this Valentine’s Day.
2. Fix heart-shaped goodies for breakfast in bed
Sounds cheesy to some, but morning mush is not outdated as yet.
Go big on an obscene display (as some may call it) of the candyfloss romance by baking your partner a heart-shaped cake.

Up the romance quotient by feeding your sumptuous spread to each other.
Works best for even those who don’t have killer culinary skills, a sincere attempt to fix a french toast totally qualifies.

P.S. I Love You.
Nothing beats love letters when it comes to romance.

Watch your love interest glow with the warmth of love and grace as she reads on.
5. Tug at her heartstrings with a song
Whether you are the girlfriend or the boyfriend, singing to your partner is going to stack you up some serious brownie points.
You don’t need to hit the right notes or set the right mood to serenade your partner.
Make it a spontaneous act, catch them by surprise when they are least expecting it and sing it out to the best of your capacity.
Choose an evergreen song that is not too challenging and is a constant on their playlist. It will bring a luminous smile to their face, instantly.

Let history repeat itself.
It’s time to reminisce about all those lovely memories you built together.
