Let's play ... it's Valentine's Day

Come February 14, many might not be able to afford a lavish day out filled with spa treatments, flowers, chocolate delicacies or dinner and, as such, might opt to stay at home. But that does not have to equate to being stuck on a couch.

Flair has gathered some V-Day activities to help you celebrate the day for lovers without digging too deep into your wallets if any at all. Put on your game face on and let’s play!

CLASSIC LOVE NOTES
Grab some pink, red and white paper and leave some spicy, love notes in unexpected places throughout the day for your Valentine. Stick them in his/her wallet, a pocket, in the bathroom on the mirror, a shoe, on the door handle of the fridge ... get creative.

V IS FOR VIDEO
Most if not all cell phones have video capturing capabilities. Find a quiet corner and record something for your love sponge. Let your partner know what will happen after dark. You get the idea!

St VALENTINE SAYS
Play St Valentine Says instead of  'Simon Says' and give your lover sexy tasks to carry out. Massage my upper body without clothes, have dinner on me … .

PAINT THE TUB RED
No not literally. But do add pink or red food colouring to the water in bath tub after filing it to switch things up a bit. Add some red, white and/or pink petals for an even more romantic ambiance. In proximity to the tub, have some finger food and wine to snack on as you soak away in each other’s arms.

VALENTINE TABOO/PICTIONARY
This one is self-explanatory. Play a Valentine's Day edition of the games Taboo and/or Pictionary. Spice things up with sexy prizes, such as an hour of sexual pleasure or have a fantasy fulfilled. 

GET COOKING
Get the ingredients to your favourite meals and both of you cook up a storm. This experience will certainly whet your appetite for more than just food, as well as set the tone for the after-dinner event.
