Tomorrow is the big day to bare all and show your feelings for a loved one. However, when it comes to Valentine’s Day, proper preparation must ensue. Our team of matchmakers at Kelleher Los Angeles is ready to help. Here are our specific tips on how to prepare for the most romantic day of the year!

The outfit – This is dependent on the date. Whether you are going to dress up for dinner and drinks or for a hike at sunset, it is important to choose an outfit that will make you feel your best. Go for comfort and class. Your clothing should make you feel confident on this special holiday. Valentine’s is the day of the year where both men and women get to flaunt for that special someone. From head to toe, choose clothing items and accessories that you love. Pick them out the night before (now!) so there is less stress when getting ready on Valentine’s Day.

The gift – We all know how difficult this part can be. Whether you’ve just started dating or are in a committed relationship, finding that perfect gift can be overwhelming. However, it is important to remember that as long as thought is put into the gift, it will be more than appreciated. This is an opportunity to show your date that you truly know them and what their interests are. Get them something they would really enjoy. And thankfully, we’ve got you covered! Take a look at our Valentine’s Day gift ideas for a little extra help. Just be sure to have the gift wrapped and ready to go well before you meet up with your date.

The activities – It is okay if you still aren’t sure what to do for the holiday. There are plenty of options. While it might be a little too late to book a reservation at a restaurant or to buy tickets to a show, you aren’t out of luck! Consider the following:

· Home cooked meal accompanied by a fire or an evening under the stars
· Spa night at home including massages, a bath, etc.
· Engage in an outdoor physical activity such as ice skating or hiking
· Scope out local events that do not require prepaid tickets such as an art show
· Road trip to the nearest national landmark

If none of these peek your interest, there are always other unexpected date ideas that you can go on with your significant other!

The anticipation – For some, Valentine’s Day can come with quite a bit of pressure. While a little anticipation is healthy, try not to get too anxious. There are several ways to beat those nerves. For example, consider a workout before the date. The increased heartrate and adrenaline will work to sweat out the nerves. Or, simply stay busy and distracted until it is finally time to start getting ready. Complete tasks you have been putting off. The busier you are, the less time you will have to think about (and worry about) the upcoming evening.

The maintenance – Before the date, make sure everything is ready to go. If you are the one who will be chauffeuring, consider getting your car professionally cleaned. Additionally, if the two of you anticipate spending any time at your house, clean there as well. Vacuumed floors, cleaned and folded laundry, scrubbed counters, and well-maintained furniture are all a must. Valentine’s Day is a special holiday. You want to make the most of it by ensuring that both you and your date receive the upmost care for an optimal experience. These details help contribute to that.

Valentine’s Day is more than just a time for roses or chocolates. There is so much more that goes into the day. We have provided this article in order to avoid all of the overwhelming preparation that goes along with the 14th of February. We hope that these preparation tips help provide you and your date with a beautiful night of romance!
