Valentine’s Day may have become too commercialized or overrated for some, but there’s no denying that there’s still something sweet about taking out your significant other, having a nice dinner, and giving them tokens that show your affection. While we do agree that Valentine’s Day should be celebrated everyday, this isn’t always possible so extra effort during the 14th of February is still always appreciated.
We compiled some of the ways that our favorite love teams and celebrities celebrated Hearts Day this year. Read on, get the kilig feels, and maybe take some inspiration for your love life! Also, props as well to the celebs who also showed love not just to their romantic interests, but also to their family members and other special people in their lives. (Spoiler alert: More love teams declared their “I love you’s” this Valentine’s Day!)
LizQuen began the day early with Enrique Gil posting a saccharine greeting for his lady love. He posted on Instagram a shot of him hugging love team partner Liza Soberano while on their European trip a couple of months ago. He then spoke of Liza’s beautiful personality—something that is refreshing to be reminded of, given that people always talk about her extraordinary physical beauty. “Happy valentines my love you have the biggest heart in the world that’s why hearts day is your day. Ikaw na talaga ang forever ko, i love you.”
Liza reciprocated on the other hand by posting a Valentine’s greeting for Enrique near midnight. Her post showed her holding a bouquet of roses and dog stuffed toys. “You’re my waking thought, my only dream, and everything I’ll ever need,” read her caption. (Aww!) Her Instagram story also contains the same picture of her hugging Enrique in Europe, with the text, “He always finds ways to surprise me. Tonight, I’m surprising him.” We wonder what that sweet surprise that Liza had for Quen!
Team Real flew a few days ago to Siargao for a break after their massively successful concert, Revolution. James Reid and Nadine Lustre celebrated their Valentine’s in the surfing capital of the Philippines, with Nadine posting a sweet photo of her and James in her Instagram account. In the photo, they are both in Siargao Daku Island, and James is sitting on a piece of wood while Nadine is leaning against him and he has his arms around her. Nadine’s sweet caption that hints at naughtiness reads, “I want all summer with you, boy let’s get in trouble.”
Maymay posted some ways on how to celebrate love during Valentine’s but not necessarily romantically. She posted in her Instagram about God’s love (“We love because God loved us first.”) and then on her IG stories about her giving heart-shaped necklace and earrings to her mom for Valentine’s. We love a good girl who celebrates all kinds of love!
The other half of the McLisse love team also showed how to celebrate Valentine’s in various ways. She posted the bouquet of flowers and chocolates she gave her mom, as well as the roses she gave to her friends, and the one she received from her Ate Trish. Elisse also posted about spending time with her girlfriends during her love-filled Hearts Day.
Now that Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte are celebrating their first Valentine’s Day publicly, the two showed their effort in a casual but still sweet manner. Loisa posted the gifts that Ronnie gave her, including pizza, a heart-shaped balloon, and flowers. The two were also seen in photos enjoying these gifts together.
Joshua’s surprises for Julia keep getting better and better! If last year, he surprised her with a choir singing Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect,” when he asked her to be his date for the Star Magic Ball, this Valentine’s Day, Joshua again surprised Julia at her home. He put heart-shaped balloons in a heart-shaped formation and put candles beside each balloon, creating a well-lit, romantic effect. It also looks like the two had dinner at Julia’s house afterward, just like they did on another romantic date last year. Julia also posted yesterday about receiving a bouquet of flowers from Joshua. It looks like Joshua keeps his Baba pampered and feeling special, just like she deserves to be!
Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff
The newlyweds are celebrating their first Valentine’s as a married couple, and the two kept it classy and classic. Anne posted the bouquet of flowers she received from her husband, and also the two of them having an intimate, candlelit dinner.
Nikki Gil-Albert and BJ Albert
Nikki posted about a “parent-themed” Valentine’s Day, where she and her husband, together with their baby, Finn, spent the first part of it at the Department of Foreign Affairs, where they probably had an appointment for passport matters. Nikki then posted about a little girl giving Finn a note with a heart at the DFA, which she said was her son’s first Valentine (how adorable!). She then said that being parents, she and BJ didn’t really reserve any place for Valentine’s and just winged it, looking for a place that could accommodate them at the last minute. It’s a great thing the two still ended up at Ding Tai Fung, which serves delicious Chinese food for their Valentine’s dinner.
Kris Aquino’s birthday falls on Valentine’s Day itself, so it was the sweetest thing when she posted a video of her two sons, Bimby and Josh, surprising her with balloon letters that spelled out “Mama.” The two then happily sang Happy Birthday to their beloved mom. Both boys then gave cards to their mom, which Bimby said was part of the $76 they spent for her (they’re all celebrating Valentine’s and Kris’ birthday abroad). How’s that for celebrating different kinds of love this Valentine’s Day?
Bianca Gonzalez-Intal and JC Intal
While television personality Bianca and basketball player JC are parents to toddler, Lucia, they still make it a point to treat themselves to date nights with only the two of them together! This Valentine’s Day, both were seen wearing black and riding a motorcycle to their date place!
