With Valentine’s Day coming up soon, many couples are planning fancy dinners and romantic evenings out with their loved ones across the city. Every restaurant in Dubai seems to have a Valentine’s Day offer, as do all the hotels and spas, and social media feeds are inundated with romantic ideas.
Unfortunately this is a hectic time of year for most people in Dubai, work is manic as everyone tries to increase their profits and exposure before the long slow months of the Arabian summer. You can barely find the time to fit in all of your clients’ needs, and in the midst of the madness, taking personal time out from your business seems not just tough but perhaps even guilt-inducing, particularly for entrepreneurs and small business owners.
But you don’t have to sacrifice your personal life (or relationship) for your job. Your personal assistant can help with a lot more than your workload, and could do a lot of the things that you can’t find the time for – including preparations for special occasions such as Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day ‘tasks’ for your PA
You’ll be surprised how perfectly your PA may be able to help plan your Valentine’s Day. Here are some of the things that you can ask your PA to help with:
- Finding and booking a table at a fantastic new restaurant:
Your PA can research the newest restaurants in Dubai, browse reviews for the best one, and make a reservation for a table for two on the evening of the 14th of February.
- Ordering flowers:
Your PA could order flowers to give your partner a wonderful surprise at their office, taking down your message from a quick phone call with you. Their careful research can ensure that you get the best flowers for your budget and that they go to the right place at the right time.
- Ordering gifts and cards:
A PA can order a gift and card to be sent to your partner in time for the special day. Whether you prefer traditional gifts such as jewellery and chocolates, or experiences such as luxury spa packages, your PA can research the possibilities and give you a short list of the best to choose from, ensuring it is wrapped and delivered as appropriate.
- Finding and booking hotel stays:
Many luxury hotels in Dubai are holding special events for couples on the day, and most of them offer a romantic package to stay the night or more. Your PA can make such a reservation for you, plus researching tickets for any other events such as opera shows or concerts.
There is a lot more that your PA can plan for you on the day, including booking any transport for you, researching recipes for a surprise meal you may want to cook, and even compiling a play list of music for the perfect evening at home.
With a capable personal assistant behind you, you no longer have to feel guilty this Valentine’s Day about not being able to plan a fantastic evening for the special person in your life. You’ll never have to deal with the consequences of having forgotten another Valentine’s Day either!
Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderfully romantic Valentine’s Day from all the team at MY PA.
