You want to show her you think she’s amazing … and you want her to feel it in every pore of her body. It’s possible, it’s not that hard, and it doesn’t take nearly as much effort as you might think. To rock her world, follow all ten steps or pick any one of the steps for a quick way to show your love. Ladies, you can turn the tables and use these tips on your man to give him a Valentine’s Day he’ll never forget!

  1. While she is out of the house (at work, shopping, with family), straighten up the house. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just dust everything off and put away the clutter. Just knowing that you were thinking of her and trying to do something nice for her while she was out will make her feel good.
  2. Before she comes home, chill some wine (or put on the pot for tea). Prepare hors d’oeuvres – something simple and light. Make sure it is something she likes to eat.
  3. Hide love notes around the house. Put messages on little sticky notes – something as simple as “I “heart” you – and hide them in places she will find them over time. Put one on the mirror in the bathroom, one under her pillow, one on her computer, even one under her coffee cup. Hide one in the cupboard and put a couple in places she may not find for a while. She’ll be delighted with the message and the playfulness.
  4. Set a relaxing mood: lower the lights, light some candles, have soft music playing. Make it seem as though your only wish is for her to come home to a loving, peaceful environment.
  5. Just before she comes home, run a very hot bubble bath. Leave the lights off in the bathroom and fill it with candlelight. Sprinkle the bath with rose petals if you have access to them.
  6. When she comes home, greet her warmly. Ask about her day. Tell her you missed her. Pour her a glass of wine and offer her the hors d’oeuvres.
  7. Massage her feet. While she is enjoying the wine, kneel in front of her and massage her feet. Foot massage can be an intimate and erotic act. Careful not to tickle!
  8. Take her to the bathroom and show her the bath (the temperature should be perfect at this point). Make sure you’ve left a book for her to read nearby and have soft music playing – perhaps even a mix of love songs that you’ve made for her. Leave her in peace for her bath.
  9. While she is bathing, lay out tickets to a show or movie that you know she wants to see somewhere where she will find them. Arrange all the details – a sitter if one is needed, plenty of time to get ready, dinner reservations.
  10. Take her out for a special evening. Dote on her, pay attention only to her. Remind her often of how much you love her, how special she is, and how lucky you are.
