Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and lovebirds all over the world prepare for the year’s most romantic day. Some plan to buy the traditional red roses bouquet or a heart-shaped box filled with chocolates while others choose to make a DIY special gift. In any case, one thing is for sure: every present must be accompanied by awesome Valentine’s Day greetings

You know it, even though you’re afraid to admit it, that Valentine’s Day card and what it reads is more important than the gift itself. It shows your beloved ones what they mean to you and plus they last forever. It’s something you can find after years in a drawer and remember that special day on the 14th of February 2019. So, the question is how to write the best Valentine’s Day greetings. 

Check out our postcard Designshop. Here you can find the best and most romantic Valentine’s motives to send them easy and fast as a postcard.

What has to be in a Valentine’s Day Card

Not all of us have a poet hidden inside. And that’s totally fine. You can still write a 3 to 5 lines text that will make your darling’s heart melt. All you have to do is make this text sound unique. Think for example, what you like the most about this person, a special moment you share during the day or an inside joke only the two of you laugh about. Then all you have to do is write it down in your own words.

Even if it doesn’t sound as poetic as you wish it did it still is much better than writing just a cliché phrase. If you fill the card’s blank page with just an overused quote, chances are your beloved one will think that you saw this Valentine’s Day card as a chore. And that’s exactly what you must avoid!

How to choose the right type of Valentine’s Day card?

Ever since Valentine’s Day is a celebrating day for couples, romantic cards of all kinds, shapes and colors fill the shops already since early February. But especially nowadays you have a bundle of possibilities which kind of Valentine’s Day greetings you want to send. You can choose a pop-up Valentine’s Day card, add your favorite photo to the front page or send a personalized card.

Last minute citytrip tip #1
Choose your destination

Last minute citytrip - The perfect destination

Before choosing the right destination you have to think about how you’d like to spend your time on your city trip. Attending cultural events and visiting museums? Tasting all the local delicacies in high-end restaurants and street-food markets or just taking lazy walks by day and hitting the dancefloor by night? Most cities have a little bit of everything but each one has its strong point. So the question is what it is you’re looking for.

Book your flight

Once you’ve picked your destination, booking a flight is your next step. As last-minute tickets are usually quite expensive, you’ll have to look harder in order to find the cheapest way to get to your destination. As the name implies, Lastminutetravel is a site that helps travelers find the cheapest flights and accommodation -yes you guessed it right- for last-minute trips.

Book accommodation

Last minute citytrip - The perfect accommodation

Spending your vacation in an accommodation you like is one of the most important aspects for an enjoyable trip. However, finding a room in a centrally located hotel may be a challenge. Chances are you either won’t find any or the ones you’ll find will be super expensive. So it’s time to start looking for some alternatives such as booking an Airbnb property or arranging a house swap. Homestay and Love Home Swap are some of the most popular sites for house exchange but keep in mind that you’ll have to do some in-depth research before finding a proper match.

Whether it will be a cultural tour, a gastronomy tour or a pub crawl it’s up to you, but in any case you’ll probably discover more than if traveling on your own. Each city has many professional tour guides and locals who are willing to take you to the most hidden corners. Tours by Locals and showaround are very helpful platforms for arranging such walks around the city.

Make a plan

Last minute citytrip - Make a list

If you don’t want to miss out on something while visiting a city make sure to make a plan beforehand. No matter how nice it may feel to just land in a new place you know little about, it can cost missing some really unique experiences and attractions. Visit A City is a website and app that lists some of the most significant landmarks in cities all over the world and suggests trip itineraries based on the time you’re planning to spend there. If none of them suit your taste make your own itinerary from scratch.

Think who are you traveling with

Last minute citytrip - Choose the right Travel mate

Before planning your itinerary think who your travel companion will be. Especially if you’re traveling with kids you need to take into consideration that little ones wouldn’t really appreciate spending a lot of time in a modern-art museum or an experimental theatrical play. The same logic, of course, goes for the older ones, so make sure to talk with your travel buddies before making any detailed plans.

Must-haves

Last minute citytrip - pack a suitcase

Packing the perfect suitcase for your last-minute city trip needs just as much planning as the rest of the trip. Make sure to pack both comfortable and stylish clothes because a city in the day feels totally different than in the night. You don’t want to forget your comfy sneakers if you want to enjoy endless walks around the attractions and neighborhoods, nor your high-heels if you want to experience the city’s nightlife. Travel size beauty products and cosmetics are certainly a must-have if you want to keep and look fresh the whole day.

Shopping

Last minute citytrip - Shopping

You might not have shopping in mind while planning your trip, yet not many people return from a city trip without an extra piece of clothing in their suitcase. Cities brim with high- end boutiques, second-hand stores, and flea markets, so even if you want to resist the temptation of adding another t-shirt or fluffy sweater to your collection no one can guarantee you will actually manage. Therefore, make sure to leave a bit of space in your luggage and add a few extra bucks to your budget.
