Celebrating Valentine’s Day in Madrid

Written by Daniella

Love is on our doorstep every February 14th and we’d better be well prepared. As Valentine’s Day approaches all Madrileños are already thinking of how they will celebrate this romantic day with their better half. Some people are not very well prepared though, and they will buy a last-minute gift. The most romantic of us will think of a wonderful plan to impress our partner. However, there are those who prefer to show their love with events throughout the year, instead of doing it on this specific day. They have nothing planned for the 14th. But if you do want to buy something special or plan a romantic day, ShMadrid will give you some interesting and very attentive ideas!

If you are one of those people who has trouble preparing in time, one of those who leaves everything to the last moment or one of those who is always forgetting important dates, we have some good advice for you, so you don’t look like a complete fool. First, and very important, write down the most significant dates in your agenda or on your calender. Think birthdays, Valentine’s Day, and especially don’t forget your anniversary. You have no excuse anymore, since nowadays your mobile phone or tablet has ideal applications. If you want to give your lady something, one of the things women like most (generalizing, of course), are flowers. A beautiful bouquet of flowers is a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. If you don’t know which flowers to choose or don’t have the time to go and get a nice, big bouquet, you can always order a home delivery service online. Most of the time they can deliver the same day you order, but remember that on Valentine’s Day, that can be a little more complicated to do. Check out Interflora for your perfect home delivery bouquet. If you want to take your partner to diner, but don’t know exactly where to go, you can book the most romantic restaurants in the capital at Remember to check out the special Valentine’s Day offers they have on their website.

If you love to surprise your partner and want to plan impressive activities, the team of ShMadrid also has ideas for you. We think that your partner is a very lucky person! So here are our suggestions: What is more romantic than looking at the stars with your partner? Well, now you can buy one. Yes, you heard it right, you can buy a star and name it yourself at Buy a Star. Great, right? Surely this will be a big and unexpected surprise. And if you’re not looking up at the sky at night, but during daytime, it’s a wonderful idea to arrange this original way of communicating the love you have for your partner: hire aerial advertising at Aeropublicidad. On their website you can check the locations they cover. Now you can say “I love you” or “Marry Me” in a very special way. Besides all these special gifts and events, always remember that the most important thing you can do for your relationship, is to understand, to respect, to love and, of course, be patient with each other. Happy Valentine’s Day!

What will you be doing for love this Valentine’s Day?
