Valentine's Day

Of all the holidays in a year, Valentine’s Day is among the ones that guys worry about the most. After all, if there’s one day that they are expected to step up and show their loved ones how much they value them, it’s on this day.

True, there can’t be any specific set of rules on things that guys should do on Valentine’s Day because every woman is different. However, there are still some guidelines that could help you make this a memorable holiday for the both of you.

With that, here are four ‘Dos and Don’ts’ that guys should remember on Valentine’s Day:

1) Don’t Forget About It

It has been a tough year for everybody and chances are, a lot of special occasions were missed due to the restrictions in your area. It makes it even more important that you remember Valentine’s Day this year and what it represents for you and your partner. She might not tell you this (or maybe she will), but it is a big deal. So, do not forget about it!

2) Do Plan for Something Both of You Will Enjoy

You must plan for both of you – not just for her and not just for you. It means that you must take time to consider what the two of you will equally enjoy. Whether you’re ordering food, choosing a movie to watch, or checking out experience gift ideas for couples, make sure that both you and your special someone will have fun on this day. You might even want to consider planning it together. This way, you can be sure that what you’ll do and have on the day is something you both agreed on and will look forward to.

3) Don’t Go for a Generic Gift

We live in a time when searching for the best Valentine’s gift takes nothing more than searching on Google. As such, there’s no excuse to choose a generic convenience-store bought bouquet of flowers or chocolates. While those are lovely presents, you should at least get your woman her favourite flowers and treats and try to personalize them as much as you can!

4) Do Try to Make It a One-of-a-Kind Experience

Remember that it’s not like any other day – it’s a day when love is celebrated, so you must make sure that your loved one feels that. Don’t take her for dinner where you always have dinner or spend the day like you would on your usual dates. Add some flair and do something unexpected for her.

Why not choose from one of the couple experiences in Edmonton offered by Epic Experiences, for instance? From archery lessons to a Canadian Rockies helicopter tour, there’s undoubtedly something that could make this year’s Valentine’s Day one for the books. It doesn’t even have to be a big adventure, as you can even choose to surprise her with a baking or cooking class, or perhaps a relaxing aroma massage. The important thing is that you do something out of the ordinary on this day!


Valentine’s Day is indeed a big one that must be celebrated, not only because it’s a romantic holiday but also because now, more than ever, people deserve to celebrate life and love. Hopefully, the dos and don’ts discussed above have given you an idea of what to do on Valentine’s Day!
