Valentine Alert: Ideas to Celebrate Valentine’s Day on Thursday

Valentine’s Day is here and lovers around the world are gearing up for the annual celebration of love. This is the day to tell the one, they are on your mind. But there’s a minor glitch.

This valentine may not be the ideal day to plan an over the board romantic date since it falls on Thursday! But don’t let that stop you from showing your partner a good time. Wondering what special can you do on a week day? We have got you some ideas that can make your Valentine’s Day in pink city make the cut. Checkithow !

For married couples and those living in, nothing can beat the intimacy of breakfast in bed. Prepare a healthy meal of things your partner loves. Decorate it nicely on a tray with a good morning note and some coffee or juice. A healthy kick start is best before the cheat meals that await you later in the day.

For those young love birds who live apart, a nice morning walk will suffice. Go to her place, wake her up with a sweet call, tell her to come down and walk along the streets. The fresh morning breeze, chirping of birds and motor sounds of the rising city will make the perfect companions for you two.

If you can arrange a car, then it’s even better. Take them on a drive to Jal Mahal or along the Central Park, the two prime locations of Jaipur that look absolutely stunning in the morning. Go another mile and take them on a long drive to Nahargarh Fort, watch the sunrise bring the whole city to life which is mesmerizing to watch. Bring a hot insulated mug of coffee and Maggi for a cozy breakfast. Share your food and spend some quality time in quiet together. Go home and come back to drop them off at work. Before they leave, gift them a nice outfit for dinner later in the evening. Don’t let them open the gift until later. Let the anticipation build for good!

At lunch, arrange for a dessert to be delivered at their desk. Order anything sweet they like. It can be a sweet, a cupcake, cookies or even ice cream. The thoughtful surprise will surely woo them. Add in some fresh flowers as well. Everyone loves a fragrant reminder of love on the most romantic day of the year. She will fall for your gestures over and over when her colleagues swoon over your little surprises!

For later in the evening, plan a happening night at a bar or lounge. Keep it a secret. Tell them to wear the gift you gave them earlier in the morning. Bars and pubs offer some exciting offers on Valentine’s Day for party lovers that you can take advantage of. Make time to browse in advance and book yourself before it’s too late.

Drink your fill and dance your hearts out with your lover in your arms. Let the party animal in you unleash itself. Have fun, sneak in some spontaneous romantic kisses, make the night count. Most of all, keep it all about both of you.

If you are not the party wild kind, then a quiet dinner at a lavish eatery can make a good choice. The Stag Café opposite Amber Fort is a chic place to eat under the starry sky. Take in the view of the brightly lit Amber Fort along with the intoxicating smells of food and cool night breeze.

Eating out may seem like a routine for long dating or married couples. So how do you spice it up? Recreate your first date! Take them to the same place, order the same menu and revisit your memories. Take pictures of the night. Make a deal of recreating your outings every once in a while. A cozy dinner at rooftop of your apartment, or the balcony can be a good option as well. Indulge in conversations.

Talk about the time that has passed and the future that awaits. Couples living apart can make a romantic night out of Valentine’s Day by packing take out dinner and going to some open public space to eat. This is good time to talk about your feelings. Say it out! Tell them how you feel. You’ll surprised how well it turns out without the mandatory lavish hangout at a restaurant or bar. After all it’s not the place but the person you are with who makes things special and out of the ordinary, isn’t it?

For those bursting at the edge of ordinariness, the unusual Hendrick’s Gin is infused with the curious, yet marvellous, essences of rose and cucumber, delectably supported by no less than 11 botanicals from the four corners of the world. Created in 1999, this whimsical concoction produces a wonderfully refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma.

About Hendrick’s:

Hendrick’s is a delicious super premium gin, made with a number of unusual twists to deliver a most curious arrangement.  Unlike ordinary gins, Hendrick’s is distilled in Scotland in two utterly dissimilar sorts of still – Victorian Bennett and rare Carter-Head still, under the watchful eyes (and nose) of Master Distiller, Lesley Gracie. www.hendricksgin.com

Hendrick’s is made by William Grant & Sons – an award-winning, independent, family-owned distiller founded by William Grant in 1886 and still controlled by the fifth generation of his family. The Company distils some of the world’s leading brands of Scotch whisky, including the world’s favourite single malt Glenfiddich, , the handcrafted range of ‘The Balvenie single malts’ and the world’s third largest blended Scotch Grant’s, as well as selected other spirits, including Tullamore Dew and ‘Sailor Jerry’.

Bidding Adieu To Jaipur Literature Festival 2019 Until We Meet Next Year !

Once again the twelfth edition of Zee Jaipur Literature Festival has come to an end. Yet again this year’s festival was an upgraded version of the previous year. Starting off with well-organized things like no on the spot registration for any day thus, resulting in fewer crowds on the weekends and second, putting up the sign boards to guide people with the sessions being held in which area. The rest was the same like dressing up the Palace with colors, Book Store- to buy books that are being launched at the festival, Food Stalls- to munch on your favorite dish and Bazaars- to add more stuff to your closet. Now without further ado let’s talk about the sessions and the speakers and give you a brief summary of what all happened at 2019’s JLF.

Day 1- As per the rituals, this year started off with Shruthi Vishwanath’s Morning Music of a wonderful rendition of spiritual poet Tukaram. The inaugural session opened the Festival’s Session with Sanjoy K. Roy, the Managing Director of Teamwork Arts; accentuated the need to respect the writers in today’s world.
