Steal Her Away to Steal Her Heart
Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year, which means that the opportunity to book a dirty weekend away is still possible.
Okay, so you may be cutting it close, but that can be turned to your advantage. Using last-minute hotel booking sites can be a brilliant way to find a bargain and, with a bit of imagination, the perfect setting for a romantic few days away from prying eyes.
Airbnb can also be a fantastic last-minute resource, due to cancellations or unforeseen scheduling changes. Whether a cabin in the woods (all the more chance for some outdoor fun) or a penthouse looking out over the city skyline is your bag, put a little thought into it and break away from the norm; a change of setting can do wonders for your love life.
Don’t spill the beans until you really have to. The preferred way to create a magical surprise is to drag it out for as long as possible. Tell your significant other to prepare an overnight bag and pick her or him up. Drive or travel to your destination and playfully avoid the big reveal until it’ll make as much of an impact as possible.
