Travelling for work frequently does not only mean meeting new people and experiencing new sights, sounds and cultures. It also involves living out of suitcases, losing sleep, missing birthdays, parties and anniversaries. While some turn to the not-so-fidelity-friendly lessons taught by Alex Goran (Vera Farmiga) in the Clooney starrer, ‘Up in the Air’, most bear the brunt of being away from their love when they are needed the most. Executive Traveller gives some tips to the romantics who have to be away from their loved ones on Valentine’s Day to make the day special for both of them.
Say it with Flowers
A beautifully done up bouquet of flowers or two delivered straight to the significant other’s work desk not only lets her know that she is being missed, it also brightens up her day infinitely. Coupled with rich, creamy chocolates and maybe even a bottle of bubbly, the surprise is flawless.
Flight of Fancy
If your lady is the one who loves to travel, why stop yourself from sending her a fancy pick-up from work, to the airport and right into your arms? From the bubbly in the car to the special suite just for the two of you, it is indeed going to be an adventure she will love.
Supper on Skype
So when was the last time you called her on Skype and watched her as she told you about her day? When was the last time you got goofy in front of the webcam? You will be surprised to realize how special a date over Skype can make your significant other feel. Serenade, dance and even do cartwheels for her. Innovate and make sure that this is one date she won’t forget for a long, long time.
Does she like music? And she has all of everything she could possibly want on her iPod? Worry not. You can create a playlist with her favourite tracks and simply mail her the link. If you are more of a performer, you can get hold of a guitar, strum, sing, record and upload the video on Youtube, and know it will definitely make her smile.
If you can’t be there to pamper her, let the people at the spa do it for you. Book an entire day for her. Amidst all the manicures, pedicures and full body massages, she’ll forgive, and might even forget, that you are not there with her.
B for Books
While some like flowers, others would like nothing better than curling up with a good book and getting lost in it. If sending one book does not quite cut it for you, pretend to be the cute admirer and send her one each day you are away. Accompanied with cute messages, riddles and even silly poetry, this is perfect for the bookworm you love to love.
