You don't want to miss out on an excellent opportunity to spice things up in your love life, do you? Make this Valentine's Day an affair to remember. Get started with these fun dating ideas!
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
If your date is an Aries, you've got a tough road ahead. They will have huge expectations from you, fulfilling which may prove to be a tad too difficult. However, there's something that never fails to excite an Aries-adventure. Visiting an amusement park would be a great way to rekindle your relationship. The perfect gift for your Aries Guy would be the latest gadget; something that he may be dying to possess, while the ladies would definitely not mind a pair of gemstones studded earrings.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It's really not that hard to bring a smile on the face of your Taurus sweetheart. Where romance goes, they are pretty traditional. They are cool with being gifted flowers and chocolates. But, there is one catch: if you plan to go traditional, make sure that everything is perfect, the best wine, the finest China and the best restaurant. Well, if that makes you nervous, there's something else you can do. Since most bulls love to indulge their senses, prepare a sumptuous meal, redecorate your bedroom, add some drops of lavender oil to an oil diffuser, experiment with the lighting to set up a warm and cozy atmosphere and soon your Taurus sweetheart would be eating out of your hands. Gift your Taurus darling something that they can make use of, a warm sweater or a dress from the best or at least their favourite brand. A music CD of their favourite band will warm their hearts too.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
The twins are strongly attracted to places that give them the opportunity to bring out their social side. A trip to the museum, bowling alley, a cafe or a place where there are lots of people is certain to make them happy. The trick is to keep the date easygoing and simple. What's better is to make a list of all those lesser known places in your city, grab a camera and take your date along to explore the city and each other too. An assortment of gifts would thrill the Gemini; present them with a gift at successive intervals during your date. You may gift them travel accessories, a camera, a book reader; just keep it useful and simple, nothing flashy.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Cancerians are romantics and nothing makes them happier than a hot date with their lover. They don't like to be surrounded with too many people and derive happiness in solitude. If a candle lit dinner is not your idea of a fun date or if that was what you did the last year, visiting a museum will be a good idea. But what will be great is to gift them your time; sign up for a pottery class or salsa class, so that you can spend some time together, not just today but later too. Cancerians love to be pampered and spa vouchers would make for excellent gifts. Also, something that you made especially for them, like a knitted pair of gloves or even a simple card, is really going to thrill them. And remember the presentation matters a great deal to them, so take time to wrap your gifts and do it with love.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Of course, your Leo darling would have their hopes high and would want you to take them some place royal. Now, you can either be intimidated or take charge and plan something really special. How about obtaining the VIP passes to an important event in the city? If that's not possible, then you can take them to a photo studio or set up one in your home and take pictures of your sweetheart all day long. Leos, so love to be in the limelight. And don't forget to plan a sumptuous dinner for later in the evening. It's all right to stroke their egos and treat them like superstars, which they may not be, once in a while. Gift them something that screams attention- a limited edition watch, a jazzy pair of earrings, tickets to their favourite concert or a theatre in town.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
They might have the reputation of being the nitpickers of the zodiac but the Virgins are actually quite sweet and genial. They appreciate if their partners do something special for them, even if it is something as simple as cleaning the house or offering to do a chore for them. Organize a sports date. Since Golf is an elegant sport, it will definitely go well with Virgo's taste for refined things and the need to stay fit. That's what you call killing two birds with one stone. Books, home appliances, coffee machine and other such practical gifts will definitely score with your Virgo sweetheart.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Got a Libra to impress? Do it in three simple steps. Step 1- Dress up in something sexy and comfortable. Step 2- Choose a fun mode of travel to reach your destination. Step 3- Visit a lovely but naturally blessed place. Librans are nature lovers. Peace and tranquility appeals to the Libran mind. Your Libran partner can't thank you enough for getting away from the maddening rush of everyday life. They prefer places where there aren't many people around. You wouldn't have to worry about people complaining about your PDA. Another great idea would be to visit a planetarium and do some star gazing together. A gift hamper from their favourite cosmetic brand, candlesticks, picture frames and good music will make your Libra sweetheart leap with joy.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
It is hard to discern the many moods of the Scorpio, but they do love to have fun. So set up a football date with your mate and watch them go crazy as you battle for their affection. Play poker. That'll surely be fun, considering how good most Scorpios are at keeping a Poker face. Gift them something dark and mysterious. A deck of Tarot Cards, a pair of shades (they like to stay incognito) or you may just gift shopping vouchers so that no one knows what they've bought.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
This Valentine's, get cheesy. Turn your room into the cheesiest Chinese, Italian or Indian restaurant; good food is important though. And don't forget to dress the part. Rent a rom-com and watch together once you are done teasing your Sagittarius mate with all the cheesy pickup lines in the world. Sagittarians love surprises. Surprise your Sagittarius mate with tickets to a special concert or to a romantic getaway out of town. Antique gifts, travelling books or gifts to cultivate their hobbies will also be a good idea.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Capricorns are known to be workaholics but it doesn't hurt to take a break and go on a trip once in a while. Book a trip for your Capricorn mate. If that's not possible, opt for a little picnic in the laps of nature. Choose a place that is beautiful and obviously romantic. Watch the sunset together, go for a stroll with your Cappie sweetheart and don't forget to hold hands; the goats love to hold hands. A bottle of expensive wine or something that you made yourself, like a knitted pair of gloves will make them more than happy.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Give into the whims of your Aquarius partner, this Valentine's. An amusement park ride or a horror movie is sure to thrill your partner. Aquarians are also quite compassionate, so visiting an old age home and spending time with those who aren't as fortunate as you will also make your Aquarian mate quite happy. Video games, the latest accessories and scented candles are certain to please the water bearers.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Go visit that music concert or set up a date on the roof of your building, complete with some wine and roses. And if you can, a roadtrip or hiking in the Himalayas would be great too. Hide love messages in the home or better yet, clues leading to their gift. They'll love you for it. Make a collage of photos or a special video telling them how much you love them.
