4 ways to celebrate Valentine's day in Nigeria
For Nigerians, valentine’s day is a way to show love, express it by buying gifts for their partners, and of course, getting gifts and other romantic gestures in return.
Note that even though Nigerians mostly celebrate Valentine's day with and for their spouses, they also do with their family members.
Let me also tell you that beyond the gifts that you give to your loved ones is the experience that you create with them. This is something most Nigerians value. So, let’s get to it already.
Everyone likes to feel special and cared for. More importantly, we all like to show off to the world and everyone around us the amazing things that we have. For instance, when we buy a new car, we want to take pictures with it and post it on social media so that everyone can see it. It makes us feel good and proud of ourselves. This exact feeling is what people get when their spouse send gifts to them at their place of work where everyone around them can see. It’s like showing to the world that they have a perfect relationship with their spouse.
So, if you are thinking of one way to celebrate this year’s valentine with your significant other, then this is an idea I promise you’d be glad you considered.
If a cosy experience with your spouse is something that you are considering, then this is one of the ideas that you should be considering. You can choose to go to a spa clinic or have a masseuse or masseur come over to your home to give you both a message.
If you choose to go get it done in a spa, then you can just easily look up some of the great spas in Nigeria online. A majority of them have great spa deals and gift cards that you can opt for.
A good day to visit the movies is on valentine’s day in Nigeria. There are usually a couple of new movies at the cinema. Plus, most of the movies viewed at the cinema around this period are love and romantic movies. I’m pretty sure that will be great for your night.
Have you considered planning a romantic in-house dinner for your partner on valentine's day in Nigeria? It’s one of the romantic things to do. I’d mostly suggest this for men because most women are not used to the idea of men cooking or setting up a romantic dinner. You can either cook the meal yourself or make an order. However, the most important thing isn’t just the food, it’s how you set the house. So, go get your candles, music and of course, the meal, turn off the light and call your partner into the room. I’m pretty sure they’d be shocked because they thought Valentine's day was going to end without a gift or any romantic gesture from you.
That’s it, guys. Try one of the 4 ways to celebrate valentine's day in Nigeria mentioned above and you would have a memorable valentine's day experience.
