What She Really Wants For Valentine's Day

First and foremost, I would like to throw a little disclaimer out there that this post is not to be taken seriously at all. It's something a little different to my usual content but I thought I'd mix things up a bit and attempt to write something quite funny. As a young girl, tv and movies can be a big influence in idolising big and very unrealistic gestures in a relationship; on that basis I have collated a list of what she really wants this Valentine's day according to the movies. 


what she wants for valentine's day
1. Roses.. and lot's of them with petals scattered all over the bed. Not forgetting the candles! 
Remember Stephanie and Jeremy from the latest season of Celebrity Big Brother? Some actually brand them as love's young dream and well, it's no wonder after Jeremy took to Twitter this week to share a snap of how he pulled out all of the stops for Steph... Roses, all over the bed. Take note boys!

2. Date idea - A cosy beach bonfire.. Tumblr is the one to blame for this. All of those gif's of couples roaming around the beach with sparklers, then sat by a bonfire wrapped up all cosy together in a blanket with toasted marshmallows. Of course not forgetting to engrave your names into the sand inside a big and very artistically drawn heart. This Valentine's day, take her to the beach.. Not Nando's. 

3. Of course, the best way to propose is to take her for a slap up meal then halfway through, carefully slide your clamshell to the other side of the table. She opens it and what do you know, there's a ring inside! And even if you're not looking to propose, no girl would say no to a Pandora ring. Just remember it has to be the princess heart tiara ring, no other ring will do. 

4. Spending the day out together? If you're not planning a surprise getaway to Paris then don't even bother. If you can imagine anything more perfect than a Valentine's meal at the Eiffel tower then I salute you.

5. Spending the day in together? A few rom coms on the couch wins a woman's heart every time. Plus don't forget the nutella. And a spoon. And ice cream. And the number for your nearest pizza takeaway. 

6. Hoping to impress a woman you've been in love with from afar? Go to her window, throw a couple of rocks to grab her attention, (It worked for Romeo, right?!) serenade her with your best One Direction impression (It has to be 'little things' of course..) and she'll be yours quicker than you can say Harry, Liam, Louis and Niall. Oh and if you can play the guitar, 4 brownie points for you Glen Coco. You go, Glen Coco!

7. She wants breakfast in bed. But she doesn't want jam and toast. She wants her toast cut intricately into heart shapes, with a bouquet of roses and a teddy on the tray. And if you really want to impress her, you can never go wrong with heading down to Starbucks, remembering her order; right from the soy milk to two shots of caramel syrup and heading straight back home to bring it to her in bed. Now that, is serious couple goals.

8. She doesn't want your £1 card from the Card Factory. She wants a love letter, something deep and meaningful and written straight from the heart. Rolled up and tied with a bow. Let her think you've forgotten about a card and leave it somewhere for her to find, every girl loves a surprise. No matter how much she insists she doesn't, she does. 

9. Never. I repeat, NEVER. Get flowers from the gas station. Or a pencil either. Now that's really bad. According to Instagram, peonies are the thing right now so turn up at her house; peonies and a note in hand. You'll be in for at least a decent kiss, whilst she spends the next half an hour trying to decide which filter to use on her photo and whether the hashtag '#couplegoals' is relevant or not.

10. What she really wants is every single MAC lipstick ever made. Fact.



I hope you enjoyed this post lovelies. I know it was something a little bit different from me but hey I suppose I can be funny.. Sometimes - haha! 

Of course, this was just a bit of fun and if there's anything I would like for you to take away from this post then it is that love isn't all about big and romantic gestures. Yeah, they're nice but they aren't the be all and end all that they are portrayed to be in the movies. Love is all about appreciation, trust and respect. So this Valentine's day even if you just crack a joke to make your partner smile then that I'm sure will be enough. So grab your blankets and movies for a cosy night in or get your glad rags on for a big night out.. It doesn't matter what you do as long as you spend it with those you love. 

Until next time,


What have you bought your better half for Valentine's day?
