How to make your valentine feel incredible…

Valentine's Day Banner

Valentines day is fast approaching and I bet you haven’t even thought about a gift yet have you? ¬†Well before the panic sets in fear not, Cheeky Little Prints are here to help you ūüôā

Are you one of the lucky ones?

Do you have a special person in your life?  If yes, believe me you are very lucky.  There are lots of lovely people out there who are still looking for their perfect partner.  So if you have found your Mr Right or Mrs Right, make sure you hang onto them and really take time to appreciate each other.

A little appreciation goes a very long way…

Valentine’s Day is a day of love, a day to celebrate your relationship and show your partner just how much you love and care for them. ¬†There are endless ways in which you can make your partner feel incredible ranging from very simple and thoughtful gestures to elaborate gifts and experiences. ¬†Maybe you are in a relatively new relationship and you are really not sure what to do to make your partner feel special. ¬†Perhaps you have been together many years and you feel you know each other very well. ¬†Either way, giving your partner the love and attention they need, want and deserve will never do your relationship any harm ūüôā ¬†Here are a few suggestions you may want to try this Valentines day…

Love and food go hand in hand…

You can’t go wrong with the tried and tested romantic meal for two. ¬†You could opt for a local restaurant but make sure you book up very soon as they get booked up quickly. ¬†But we have children I hear you say, so that means finding a babysitter! ¬†If this is you, simply have your romantic meal at home. ¬†Put the children to bed, a little early if you can ūüėČ and why not dress up, making an effort will make your partner feel special and you will feel good too. ¬†Why not cook your romantic meal together, cooking with your partner can be a huge amount of fun!

Adventure awaits…

Plan a fun activity you can do together, a common interest, something you will both enjoy. ¬†Seeing as Valentine’s day is on a Tuesday this year you could plan your activity for the following weekend. ¬†You could either plan the day together or why not surprise your partner. ¬†Visit a favourite town, go walking in the countryside, spend the day relaxing and recharging in a spa, go away for the weekend or embark on an adventure. ¬†I quite fancy doing one of those tree top adventures or if you love horse riding (like me) book a hack together at your local stables.

Capture your special memories…

Life is so fast paced these days, we rarely stop and take time to really appreciate what we have and reflect on the precious people and animals in our lives.  Memories are made everyday with the people and animals around you, yet how often, if ever, do you stop and capture those memories?

You can capture your special memories by simply taking photographs, but what happens then, do they stay sat on your phone or perhaps you post them on Facebook or your other social media accounts?  Why not look through your photos and pick a favourite one of you and your partner and also with your children and pets if you have them.  Once you have chosen that special photo get it printed onto a nice canvas so you can hang it in pride of place on your wall at home and look back at that memory for years to come.

Large silver heart charm with hand & footprint and hand inscribed name.

A popular gift for Valentine’s Day is jewellery and it is easy to see why, who wouldn’t want to receive a stunning gift from the heart? ¬†With so much jewellery to choose from though, it can be a little overwhelming to choose the right gift. ¬†If you are looking for something extra special to show your partner they mean the world to you why not have a bespoke piece of silver keepsake jewellery created for them?

Cheeky Little Prints specialise in handcrafting high quality jewellery that showcases your loved one’s unique prints. ¬†Choose from fingerprints, hand & footprints, pet’s paw prints, horse’s shoes, kiss imprints and special messages! ¬†Why not capture your own fingerprint or kiss imprint in stunning silver jewellery so that your partner can keep a part of you with him/her wherever they go? ¬†If you have children, your partner is bound to cherish a gift showcasing your children’s hand & footprints, capturing that unbreakable bond that links you all together and makes you a family ūüôā ¬†For those of you that have children with four legs and fur, you are likely to earn extra brownie points for capturing your treasured pet’s paw print in stunning silver as a surprise for your partner!

The power of the written word…

Never underestimate the power of the written word. ¬†If the thought of having to pour your heart out into a lengthy love letter brings you out in a cold sweat, then you will be pleased to know you don’t have to write an essay! ¬†I imagine the beads of sweat are now beginning to form on the brow of a few men right now! ¬†Simply leaving little post it notes around the house with little scribbles of love will go down a treat!

The other thing you can do, and my Sister’s Fiance did this last year (and it was a real winner!) ¬†is to get a nice gift box and some coloured paper. ¬†Cut or rip the coloured paper into lots of pieces. ¬†On each piece of paper note down something you love about your partner, note down anything and everything! ¬†Do you love her eyes, do you love his smile or the way he laughs? ¬†Perhaps you can’t wait to get home as your partner gives you the most amazing cuddles! ¬†Sometimes it’s the little things that actually turn out to be the big things and mean the most in life.

And most importantly LOVE yourself…

Let’s not forget those of us who are singletons this Valentine’s Day! ¬†So if you are still looking for your special someone, don’t be sad, celebrate being you. ¬†Take some time to pamper yourself…. ¬†Ladies treat yourself to a new dvd (Bridget Jones’ Baby has just come out) and snuggle up in your pyjamas with a box of delicious chocolates and paint your nails to make you feel fabulous ūüôā ¬†Or why not get a group of girls together and go out to the cinema, stopping off at the nail salon on the way of course! ¬†Guys, spend some time chillaxing with your favourite sports programme/box set or if you are adventurous go out cycling or climbing.

Oh and if you fancy swapping those around go right ahead, I am sure there will be some great manly films at the cinema and if you feel a desire to paint your nails too gents, why not, it will certainly be a talking point in the office the next day!  And girls, why not dust off your trainers and find a piece of adventure, you never know, you might bump into a lovely guy doing just the same as you!
