Valentine’s Day Guide: What Are Their Love Languages?

Can you smell the sweet scent in the air? Is there a new spring in your step?  Or perhaps you’re feeling a tingling sensation on your skin? Well, guess what? You’ve been bitten by the love bug because we’re officially in the month of love! The time has come for you to show your significant other just how much you adore them and to speak their love language. We’ve put together a nifty Valentine’s Day guide to help you turn up the romance and make their heart light up. Of course, you could do this on any day of the year but expressing your love for them on Valentine’s Day 2022, is what matters most! Nobody wants to feel left out, especially when all their colleagues, friends and family will be flaunting the marvellous gifts and grand gestures their partners did for them. So, get out a pen and paper and take down some notes!

What To Do For Valentine’s Day

Don’t use a one-size-fits-all approach on your partner, that’s a no-go zone! Rather do the things that speak to their love language. This can range from saying words of affirmation, spending quality time together, doing something nice for them to physically touching them or showering them with gifts. Don’t know what their love language is? Don’t fret! We’ve created a fun and easy love language quiz to help you out (Psst, you can use it to find out your love language too!)

And…what was the answer? Are you surprised at all or are you already a pro at speaking their love language? Now let’s get into our Valentine’s Day guide on what you can do for them in the weeks leading up to 14 February 2022 or for the entire month!


Act On Romance

If their love language is acts of service then you better roll up your sleeves and do everything that’ll whisk them off their feet, both literally and figuratively! You can bring a hot cuppa coffee or tea to their bed while you help the kids get ready for school. Serve them smiles on a personalised chopping board with ‘deli’-cious cold meats and un-‘brie’-livable cheese assortments.

You can also cook up a storm. It doesn’t have to be a 5-star Michelin kind of meal (But if you’ve got the skills, why not!) Or, you can do something out of the norm like wash and pack away the dishes and also clean up the garage. Whatever you decide, just make sure you help relieve your loved ones from chores or their daily workload.

Don’t Lose Touch

Physical touch… do we need to say more? If you already know your partner’s sweet spots, then this love language will be a breeze for you. You can smother them with chocolate-coated kisses that’ll make them go ‘cocoa’! You can touch their heart by dedicating a special song to them that they can listen to on their personalised wireless earbuds. Their heart will not only skip a beat, but it will also be breakdancing too!

Why take them to a spa when you can bring the spa to your home? All you need is some sensual massage oils, fragrant candles to set the mood, a soft personalised gown to slip out of and your hands of course! We also have alcohol gifts that come with kinky handcuffs or X-rated fortune cookies if you want to spice things up a bit. This month is the best time to be all hands-on and make sure your special someone feels close to you in every way possible.

Talk To Their Heart

Next up, we have words of affirmation. Your nearest and dearest need to be reminded and reassured that you think they’re amazing and are doing great at school, work or in general. Surprise them with a scrumptious box of snacks that says, “you are my moon and stars”. You can also choose any personalised gift and add any message that’ll make them smile and feel encouraged whenever they read it.

Even though the words, “I love you” carry so much weight and impact, your partner needs more than that. They need to know why you love them and the things they do that make you happy. Send them a love note inside a romantic card detailing all the cute things you love about them. Let them know they’re on the ‘write’ track with a journal filled with motivational words.


Time To Show Up

Now if quality time is their love language, one-on-one uninterrupted time is the order of the day! Take a page out of a fantasy book and plan a whimsical Valentine’s date that’ll give them butterflies. Make time stand still when you take them outdoors for a picture-perfect picnic under a blanket of twinkling stars. And if you sprinkle a few fresh flower petals on the floor, bring chocolate-dipped strawberries and their favourite bottle of alcohol, they’ll be on cloud ‘wine’!

‘Tick’ all their boxes when you spend alone time with your number 1 creating unforgettable memories. Whether it’s a dreamy staycation in South Africa or a jaw-dropping holiday trip overseas. The highlight of their day is every special moment spent with you, so make it count!

The Gift Of Love

This brings us to the last love language, receiving gifts. And do you know what’s the greatest gift of them all? When you get them a flattering and swoon-worthy gift from NetFlorist! It’s not to say they’re materialistic or anything. It’s the fact that you saw something online and thought of them that matters. Make them clap their hands in delight with a dazzling piece of jewellery or a ravishing arrangement of red roses. If you do this, they’ll only have heart eyes for you.

You don’t have to break the bank and splurge on expensive gifts. We have adorable and affordable Valentine’s Day gifts for under R299. From ‘tee’-ribly hilarious custom T-shirts to candy jars filled with sweet love for your one and only eye candy. So, there’s no reason for you to show up empty-handed on the biggest celebration of the year!

You don’t have to worry about being tongue-tied this month. As you can see, there are lots of things that you can do to speak their love language fluently on Valentine’s Day and 365 days of the year! And with our handy Valentine’s Day guide, your words and actions will not be lost in translation. Don’t leave it up to Cupid, you can leave your hubby, wifey, boyfriend or girlfriend love-struck with a romantic and meaningful gesture that speaks straight to their heart! So, what are you waiting for? Put this advice into practice and leave your partner speechless.
