Life is often hectic and fast-paced; it’s easy for us to get consumed by work, studies and other obligations, leaving little time for…well, life. So what is the perfect solution? One big holiday aimed at focusing attention on the importance of loved ones. Valentine’s Day can be a perfect opportunity to slow down, relax and enjoy the company of your partner, and we have come up with some creative ideas for you to celebrate the holiday.
Planning a date day can be a fun way to mix things up, especially if you and your partner have crazy schedules. Whether you choose to go out or stay in there is something here for everyone.
If your Valentine is into art or history, check out a local museum. You can enjoy all the wonders of culture, see some ancient artifacts, and maybe even see your favorite artist’s work on display.
Make reservations at your favorite local spot or scope out the town and try out a new place
Picnic In The Park Or At The Beach
Grab your sweetheart and some snuggly blankets and head to your favorite park or beach for a Valentine’s Day picnic. Take some wine, flowers to decorate the blanket and head off to the shore or a grassy field to relax.
Take A Class Together
Who needs Netflix, when you can learn a new skill? This Valentine’s Day, why not take a class with your partner? Classes are an activity you can enjoy together, while learning something new and strengthening your relationship.
Go On A Spontaneous Road Trip Somewhere Close By
Ditch the stereotypical Valentine’s Day dinner date. This year, surprise your significant other with an impromptu getaway that you can enjoy as a couple.
Breakfast In Bed
Surprise your partner with breakfast in bed. This is an easy, yet incredibly thoughtful and romantic idea to show them how much you care about them during this special day.
There are a lot of different ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re the type that wants to go out and have a nice dinner or stay in and curl up on the sofa and watch a movie, there are several options for you.
A night out on the town can be fun, especially if you and your significant other don’t get out of the house much. Try a nice restaurant, catch a movie, go for ice cream – the options are pretty much endless with this one.
Cook A Meal Together
Cooking as a couple can be really romantic. For some, it is a purely meditative and relaxing experience. For others it can be full of surprises and experimentation. But no matter what your approach to food is, the best way to fully immerse yourself into the experience is to cook with someone you love.
Picnic At Home
Grab the blankets and the pillows and set up a picnic in the comfort of our own home – no reservation required. Pull together a dessert charcuterie board, pour some champagne, put on your favorite playlist, and enjoy your romantic evening together.
Have a quiet night with a movie marathon. Complete the evening with a blanket fort and pizza or your favorite Chinese take-out. Nothing will make you feel more loved than some good ol’ fashioned comfort food while watching some of your favorite films together.
Why not make Valentine’s Day a bit more fun – or competitive even – with a game night. Gather around the table for an evening of entertainment and laughter.
Create A Bucket List Together Or Plan A Getaway
Most couples want to create a relationship that’s full of love, adventure and fun. But somehow, “fun” gets lost in the daily routine. Sit down with your partner and create a bucket list together, or plan a future getaway.
This Valentine’s Day, remember that the important thing isn’t what you’re doing, or how much money you spend doing it. It’s sharing time with the one you love. Whether you’re watching a movie on Netflix, curling up by the fireplace, or going out to a fancy dinner, it doesn’t matter – it’s about being together.
