Every woman wants to feel wooed once in awhile. Valentine’s Day may be the ultimate Hallmark holiday, but it’s the perfect time to get mushy with your honey bun.
It’s an even more apropos celebration for lesbian couples because Valentine’s Day’s pagan roots lie in the celebration of Lupercalia. This festival celebrated the Goddess of Fertility Juno along with the coming of springtime.
So, how do you treat your lady like a goddess this Valentine’s Day? Here are our most romantic lesbian Valentine’s Day ideas for all budgets large and small to wow her this year.
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue: Turn a Humble Picnic Into a Day She’ll Never Forget
What could be more romantic than invoking this age-old adage of a wedding day? Even if you’re not ready to pop the question, be warned she might be ready to say yes after this picnic, you’ll wow her all the same with this simple but inspired date.
To make a simple picnic extra romantic incorporate everything a bride needs on her wedding day. Here are some ideas for a creative romantic spin on the traditional picnic:
- Something Old
- Did your mom or grandma have a picnic basket that they’ve passed down or used forever? Maybe you’ve got the table cloth from your family that they always used at holidays. Perhaps you have a favorite blanket that you’ve cuddled since you were a kid. Use them for this event to make it sentimental and special.
- Something New
- Buy a new gift for your lovely. This could be a bracelet or something fun and funky she would admire.
- Something Borrowed
- Play around with this idea. Does your girlfriend, or wife, love dogs but can’t have one right now? See if your friend will let you borrow theirs for a romp around the park for the day. Rent a double seater bicycle and ride together to your picnic site. Be creative, that is what builds the romance.
- Something Blue
- You could be cheeky here and add a block of blue cheese to the charcuterie board or find a basket from a thrift store and paint it blue. It’s up to you. Maybe you have a fantastic blue dress you look gorgeous in and could wear for the picnic. Or you could channel your inner Tennessee Williams and get your lady a dozen blue roses.
You’ll soon realize that the sandwiches have taken a backseat to cuddling and sky-gazing after this romantic and affordable afternoon adventure.
Take the Backseat: Do Something She Loves and Make the Whole Day About Her
Show your lady that you know her the best by planning her dream day.
Does your special someone love outdoor activities? Are they a daredevil? Take them rock climbing or hire a private guide to take you snorkeling in a new location.
Does she love movies? Grab all her favorites and plan a night in of binge-watching with all of her favorite candies and movie snacks. Not only does this give you the ultimate opportunity for snuggle time, it shows you’ve been listening and learning about her during your relationship.
No matter what your lady-love loves make sure the entire focus is all on her for this one special day. She’ll feel spoiled and special. The best.
Table for Two Please: Book Reservations at That Exclusive Restaurant At Which She’s Been Dying To Eat
If you have some cash in the bank, this is a great day to flaunt it a bit. This one can take some planning or an “in” in the kitchen, but it’s a night she’ll never forget.
Research the restaurant and reach out to them about how they can help make things special. Most fine dining spots have a chef’s table experience or something extra special they can do for a date night.
Ask what their ideas are and explain how much you love her. They’ll book you in and help you make it right. Pop for that bottle of fancy bubbly and enjoy the bliss on your lover’s face as she floats through the courses.
