If you’re in a committed relationship, you know the stress that comes with planning the perfect Valentine’s Day. There’s the perfect gift to choose, the perfect day to plan, and luckily, the perfect person to spend it with. Regardless, waiting until the last minute can make Valentine’s Day planning all the more chaotic and stressful.
Now that the holiday season has finally come to a close, you officially have the time needed to plan for Valentine’s Day. Here’s why you should always plan early for the most romantic day of the year.
Valentine’s Day 2019 is on a Thursday
This year, Valentine’s Day is scheduled to take place on Thursday, February 14. While Thursday is one of the most un-sexy days of the week, it also means it’s going to require more effort to plan than working with the luxury of a weekend date. As such, you’re going to have to plan in advance to make the day special.
During weekdays, you’ll find that about 50% of limousine services are already booked by businesses. So if you’re looking to reserve a classy limousine for your special night out, you’ll need to plan ahead.
Finally, it’s likely that you’ll both have to work on Valentines Day, which means you’re running out of time to request the day off. You also might want to talk to your spouse or significant other in advance if you’d rather wait until the following weekend to celebrate. As such, you’ll need to decide on the celebration date to plan your special day accordingly.
Booking trips is a hassle
There’s no better gift for Valentine’s Day than going on a luxury vacation with the one you love. After all, a recent survey revealed 71% of couples, both married and otherwise, claim that talking and reconnecting through quality alone time is the best reason to travel together on vacation.
Everyone knows that booking flights and trips should be done in advance if you want to get the best deal. If you’ve waited until after the holidays to book that special destination vacation, now is the time to lock those plans into place. Otherwise, you might find yourself scrambling at the last minute to book a room, let alone find the best deal. Now that you only have a month and some change left, it’s time to start hotel-hunting.
There are plenty of after-Christmas deals
Now is the best time to shop for the surplus products that stores weren’t able to sell over the holidays. There are also plenty of bargains and deals hoping to cash in on those holiday bonuses. Regardless of the reason behind the sales, getting the best gift for Valentine’s Day might be right after Christmas.
For example, some gaming laptops are being sold for up to $200 off in some locations. Whether you’re trying to book a romantic getaway or want a physical representation of your love, grabbing those last-minute deals might save you in the long run.
You might want to plan a party
Valentine’s Day is known as a romantic holiday for two, but countless singles, friends, and family members also celebrate on the loveliest days of the year. You might need to get a small token for your parents or buy chocolates for your children. Family members also appreciate the love around Valentine’s Day.
It might seem exhausting to do so much planning right after the hubbub of the holidays, but there is less time to plan for Valentine’s Day than you think. With this special date only a few weeks away, it’s time to plan sooner than later if you want to make it a day to remember.
