ability to keep a secret







desire for romance

Step 1

Make reservations at a local hotel

Planning is key:
You'll want this to be a big surprise for your Valentine and it's one of my favorite ways to surprise my sweetie. Yours will love it too!
Call around your own city and find a nice hotel to make reservations at the best and most luxurious place you can find and afford. Usually around Valentine's Day, many of the hotels offer substantial savings, special discounts and include something else such as dinner, breakfast, chocolates or champagne included with your stay.

Step 2

Find free entertainment

Try to find a local hotel that has a lounge with free entertainment for the evening. Your loved one will think you'll just be going out dancing or listening to music... but, you know there's more!

Step 3

Pack lightly

Once you have the hotel reservations booked, decide what clothing items to pack in an overnight bag keeping it sexy and simple. You'll need to pack for both of you but, pack while they're at work or away so you can keep it a surprise. Just remember not to pack the favorite clothing item that they may want for your Valentine's date.

Step 4

Include romantic candles, oils, music, champagne

Massage oil

Body lotions
Healthy snacks

Step 5

Getting ready:
Pre-pack the trunk of your car while your Valentine isn't looking or just pre-register in advance earlier in the day at the hotel so you can already have the room ready and key in hand.

Step 6

Present the hotel key in a gift box

Bring a small box with a bow on it and place the hotel room key in it so you can present it to your Valentine later in the evening during dinner or the entertainment! Won't your Valentine be surprised!

Step 7

Let the romance begin

Enjoy each other:
Spend the evening in the hotel room focusing only on your loved one, no TV allowed. Enjoy music, a warm bath or shower together using the body products you've packed, a massage, conversation and anything else that comes to mind. Make an unforgettable weekend getaway for you and your Valentine.

Step 8

Enjoy an unforgettable Valentine's Day getaway!
