Valentines day is hours away, if you aren’t prepared already you better get prepared.
- Love our wives whole heartedly
- Raise the bar
- Instigate intimacy and love
- Mix it up
- Thoughtfulness of mind body and soul
Valentines day is often left to the sidelines now a days with so many busy people out there trying to make way.
So for my dadpreneurs and husbands who struggle sometimes to show your love for their partners, here are a couple tips to redeem yourself this year and to show your partner she means the world to you:
This may be too late for some of you. Restaurants are likely already booked, shows and pubs are likely going to be as well. Just remember whatever you plan, either just for your wife or involving the whole family, needs careful thought and preparation. Don’t be afraid to plan Valentine’s Day together should she not be expecting a surprise!! Either way, it really is the thought that counts and she will appreciate it.
Valentine’s Day a family get together:
Here’s an alternative for us dadpreneurs and over time working husbands trying to pay the bills. Write cards to your children, encourage them to make gifts for their mother or your partner, and then schedule “the family love feast” where the cards made are read and family love stories and goals for more love are shared.
Do something small a few days before or after V-Day:
Gold star power and super browny points! Show your true colors by planning something extra loving and sincere before the day. Show that its not just valentines day that makes you want to celebrate and show your adoration and love for her.
Dudes, you can do it! Meditation is not that hard! Do it with me now after reading this next paragraph..
Close your eyes and calm yourself down. Now clear your mind of bills and deadlines and start thinking of why this person won over your frozen cold heart. Remember why you are so in love that you are even reading this. Now think of how this amazing human being, that puts up with your faults, would love to hear and feel from you. Writing this down while you experience it may help you to remember how to present this to her. She’s the love of your life. She’ll love the words, thought and warmth this cold valentines day. Trust me.
Write her a letter from your heart:
While you meditate this is a bonus. Just write down all those amazing memories you experienced together. Your first date, the first time she did that thing, you know… just write it down and how it affected to your soul when you thought of those memories or of her.
Last minute Mathew? Your welcome: Cook dinner at home:
You made it this far with them. You’re either in deep trouble and last minute or you aren’t afraid to follow instructions hehe. Here’s the order of the evening:
- Make sure the children are at Grandma’s (unless you’ve opted for the family Love Feast).
- Plan your menu carefully.
- Make a flashy-looking menu.
- Flowers on the table (nothing expensive).
- Plan for the entire evening.
- No TV, unless it’s a movie you have thoughtfully planned.
- Under no circumstances does she do the dishes.
- Dessert and coffee, later.
(dadprenuer?) Sneak away from work and meet her either for lunch or coffee during the day:
This may not be possible for all those overtime or manager dads. But, if you are an entrepreneur like myself and you can get the time away.. surprise her with flowers in person at her work. Here’s a clue, such creative efforts mean more to your wife than expensive stuff incase you are head over heals I bills still from Christmas.
Imagine you’re asking her to marry you, think about what you would say today, and then say it:
Write it down. You can present it to her after you’ve finished re-proposing.
Leave a love note:
Don’t be afraid to leave some posted notes around the house. On the mirror saying how amazingly beautiful she is and you can’t believe she gets more and more beautiful with age. You can do a variety of these, like a map or trail leading to a rose peddle covered bed or just on the way out the door as she leaves for work for the day.
Pro tip question to ask yourself about her:
I love her because…
Now go out and Enjoy!
