Now to our valentines post……
I’m not a strong believer in valentines day because I feel if you TRUELY love someone you will show them everyday, with small things, but as things go valentines day is approaching and a few of the people here at Dxb Blog thought it would be appt and helpful to do a post about valentines, what it’s all about, gift ideas, where to go and such glorious topics! So here goes .. “Dxb Blog goes Valentines”
Well I think we covered what it’s all about for me personally, but as a general worldly consensus it’s about LOVE. The union of two beautiful hearts, showing and expressing their dedication, passion and LOVE for each other. Exchanging of gifts, Romance, the color red and so on…. Now I don’t puke at love I just don’t believe one day is enough.
Contrastingly, St.Valentine was a Christian martyr who dates back to the 5th century for the sake of love and marrying young lovers and the day he was sentenced to his death (14th feb) he was said to have wrote a letter to his lover and signed it, your valentine. This dates back to Rome and has connections with the roman festival; Lupercalia. A festival that involved sacrificing an animal and whipping woman with the dry skin……
Moving on… Now you know the basics…
Traditional: Roses and Chocolates
That dress, shoes or outfit she’s had her eye on.
Personalize a picture for her
A picture mug
A snow globe
A locket with pictures of you both
A pendant to her favorite bracelet
Her favorite perfume
A spa voucher for you both
A voucher to her favorite shop
Personalized photo, mug, snow globe, stationary-pen
A spa voucher for you both
A grooming voucher
A new wallet
A bracelet or chain
Something to do with his favorite sports team or favorite band
Just a few ideas for you to tamper with….
Now … Where can you spend your “LOVE” day? Or what to do to make it extra special?
-Spend the day together at the beach!
-Make him/her breakfast in bed with a flower… “Kisses for breakfast early in the morning”?
– Go on a hike or picnic!
-Miracle gardens Dubai
– Take a walk around the Souq at Madinat Jumeirah
– Try the Abbras in various locations(like Dubai mall )
– Ice skating
More adventurous for your money-
– Take him/her out for dinner;
Our top 3;
Al Qasr beach dinner: At 2,800 per couple with house beverages and 2,200 with soft drinks. That view though… <3
Pool decks of JW Marriot by business bay, enjoy dinner under the stars: At 1,850 with house beverages and a red carpet entrance .. It should be a dazzling night.
A seven course meal at Rang Mahal by Atul Kachhar: At 1,150 per couple including limousine pick up and drop off and a gift box and red roses upon arrival, what more could you want?
-Spend the day at a spa together, there are lots of valentines spa offers on cobone, groupon.
Here’s a few our team liked;
Jumeirah Zabeel Saray; it doesn’t matter the occasion for this, The saray is perfect for anything but it’s an extra special treat to sweep up your loved ones! Located on the palm, you have options to lounge on beautiful beaches too!
The ritz Carlton spa; these guys have pulled it out with their couples offers and treats, enjoy it together!
The intercontinental festival city will show you how certain basic grocery items like lemongrass, ginger and honey can blow your body and mind with their valentines special!
Go crazy activity!
Go karting, Ski Dubai, bun-jee jump, Sky dive, the sky is certainly not your limit in this magical city!!
