Love can be communicated in various ways from hand holding to surprise dinners. Gary Chapman theorized the different ways to express love as the “Five Love Languages”: words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch. Expressing love may vary from person to person, but it is essential to know your loved one’s love language to improve your relationship.

This Valentine’s Day, Ayala Malls Central Bloc has prepared various activities centered on the Love Languages to help you celebrate the special day with loved ones. Here are some of the ways you can show and communicate love this Heart’s Day:

Receiving gifts: Keep it sweet and classic

Sweet treats and fresh blooms have always been Valentine’s Day staples and they never go out of style. Surprise your other half with the tried-and-true bouquet of roses from Kalidades at the Ground Floor, and show your love in the sweetest way with a box of chocolates.

Find gift ideas for your loved ones at the Love Blooms Exhibit located at the Corte, Ground Floor and 2nd Floor, near Dara until February 14. Shop specialty gifts for your valentine at the Love Market located on the Ground Floor throughout February.

Quality time: Enjoy a hearty meal

One of the best ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day is to eat delicious food with the company of people you love without the distractions. Whether it is breakfast in bed or a romantic dinner for two, make the day extra special with flavorful meals from your favorite restaurant.

Know and dine by your love language at Stop Bite located at the Activity Center throughout February. There’s nothing more romantic than ending the day dining under the stars with your other half. For a romantic dinner date, dine al fresco at 10 Dove Street, A Little Tea, Ambiance, Banapple, Boy Zugba, Chachago, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Gerry’s Grill, NY Buffalo Brad’s, Sachi Ramen, and Wingers from February 12 to 14.

Words of affirmation: Communicate creatively

Making personalized gifts is a unique and heartfelt way to show love and affection. Plus, they make great keepsakes too. Unleash your creativity and give your loved ones a present literally made from the heart like a handwritten letter, song, playlist, or even a poem.

Acts of Service: Express love through labor

Let actions speak louder than words through thoughtful gestures. This season of love dedicate time and effort in showing your valentine you care for them through making sure to celebrate love month safely. Make digital date night extra special with Sachi Ramen’s DIY kits, located at Food Choices, 4th floor, available from February 1 to 15.

Be serenaded by the country’s leading acoustic band MYMP at their Online Valentines Show, streaming at Ayala Malls Central Bloc’s Facebook page on February 14, 6 P.M. Feel the love and be inspired by heartwarming quotes written and contributed for Love Lines, which will be displayed around the mall from February 10 to 28. Surprise your loved one with an exclusive playlist keychain with the Heart Beats promo. To get a keychain, drop by the concierge from February 8 to 14 at the ground floor near Regatta and Adidas and present a P500 single receipt from any AyalaMalls Central Bloc food & non-food outlet (excluding grocery receipts) or when you shop through ANA.
