Clean your room

Although this may not sound so exciting, cleaning your room for when your significant other comes over on Valentine’s Day can go a long way. This can include moving the family portrait that is on your bedside table to picking up the dirty clothes on the floor. If you even go as far as cleaning the sheets and lighting a few candles the setting for your night will be a lot more romantic. After a while, there is a certain level of comfort in a relationship which may mean you do not keep things as tidy as you would for a first date. However, this small effort can end up having a lot of benefits to your Valentine’s Day and your relationship.

Buy a sex toy

Sex toys do not take away from anything, but they will definitely add some spice to your sex life in your relationship. A lot of people think that if they want to bring a toy into their sex life then their partner will get the impression that they are not a good lover, which is not the case. There is no need to feel ashamed about bringing a sex toy into the bedroom and there is no harm in trying it once and ditching it if it is not working for you. Going to an adult store together will also open up a discussion about what you like and will give you the chance to choose something that will work for both of you.

Spend a night in a hotel

Whether you live with your significant other, have children or just need a change of scenery then spending a night in a hotel with each other could be a good way to spice up your relationship. Even if you just get a room at a hotel in your city, it is a great way to spend a night out and in at the same time. Order room service, get a bottle of wine and light some candles and you can guarantee you will have a romantic night. It is an added bonus if your hotel room has a Jacuzzi tub or a scenic view.
