The lovey-dovey duo kicked off Valentine's Day with a trip to the beach, which was in Aruba, according to the Daily Mail. "Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I used to think this Day was a conspiracy of chocolatiers and florists but I realize that taking a day out of our busy lives to celebrate the love in our lives is so important and should be every day," Ian captioned a smiley shot of himself cozying up to the Twilight alum, with both rocking wet hair with the ocean in the background.
"Celebrate love in your life-it's what makes the world go around...Thank you all for giving us so much love, it's so beautiful and so appreciated," the Vampire Diaries star continued. "Enjoy today-I just hope it isn't about spending lots of money-the pressure to. THATS the corporate side that makes me sad. Love should be simple but thoughtful- a gesture or loving act shouldn't be judged by its price tag...Love, Ian."
A small part of Nikki's engagement ring can be seen in the snap as well. Rather than repost Ian's shot, the actress put up a shot of her own, captioning a black and white photo of herself kissing her love's cheek with "This..."
The couple's sweet Valentine's Day posts comes just a couple of weeks after Nikki showed off her engagement ring for the first time, flashing the massive diamond as she packed on the PDA with Ian in Atlanta, according to Us Weekly.
Nikki's ring is shaped like a flower with 10 mini diamonds surrounding a round cut diamond. After staying mum on their relationship for some time, she also opened up about her beau, telling the mag, ""He's so beautiful inside and out! He's quite possibly the most amazing man that's ever walked the planet, it's crazy. I'm so lucky, I love him."
