Valentine’s Day is coming up in a few days and many couples already have their day planned out. From expensive dinners to cute picnics, the options are endless.

So, it’s time to change the game and switch it up. It doesn’t need to be complicated. As they say, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” 

Here are our three picks for simple ways to spoil your other half this Valentine’s Day. 

Make a mixtape

It may sound old school but it works. Mixtapes are a great way to rekindle the nostalgia of your first dance together, or even the first time you guys shared a smooch. Throw a few songs on there that really mean a lot to the both of you. If you really want to keep it old school, consider getting a cassette with the songs recorded on it and gift it with a cassette player. It’s the thought that counts, right?

Netflix and chill movie night

Okay, so maybe you won’t be needing the blanket to snuggle up with your partner thanks to the Durban heat, but a romantic movie, popcorn, and other snacks are the perfect option - and not to mention that it’s so simple to set your couch night up. If you’re living in the digital age, stream your favourite romantic movie, or grab a DVD from your local store if you prefer old school. Add the snacks, candles, pillows, and a fan to cool things down and you’re set.

A soothing spa day

Life is busy, and sometimes all you need is to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all. If you have a hardworking partner who can’t seem to put his/her laptop and phone away, consider booking a spa day to treat the special person in your life. All you need to do is call, book, and spoil – it’s that easy. 

The Camelot Spa at the Pearls Mall, Umhlanga is the perfect spot to do so. They are described as "an ambience of professionalism and luxury, Camelot Spa at The Pearls Mall epitomizes a tranquil oasis in the bustling coastal town of Umhlanga."
