Valentine’s day is just around the corner which means couples everywhere are getting themselves into a flurry trying to decide how to spend the day with their other halves.
Here are seven tips and ideas on how you can surprise your partner and make this day beautiful and special:
1. Make A Meal:
As it has been rightly said, ”There is no sincere love than the love for food.” Change your usual tradition of a dinner night by making a special meal for your partner. If your partner is up for it, then cook a meal together. Even if both of you are awful at it, it will be fun.
Cooking is one of the most effortless ways to bond with someone. Spend the night relaxing over good food and cozy company instead of cramped with strangers. The best part? You’ll both enjoy some peace and quiet.
2. Romantic DIY Dinner Date:
Now that you’ve prepared your meal, surprise your partner by setting up a beautifully decorated table in your backyard or your rooftop.
Decorate with heart shaped balloons and coloured ribbons. Place strawberries dipped in chocolate in a dish, and place it on the nightstand or somewhere where it’s easily accessible. Set the mood by lighting some candles or playing relaxing music and have a speciality drink or cocktail.
Enjoy an unforgettable dinner under the stars with your sweetheart.
3. Watch The Sunrise Together:
Do something exciting and spontaneous. Begin the day by waking up your partner with a big bunch of roses and drive him/her to watch the sunrise.
Prepare a small picnic basket comprising of cheese, fruits, chocolates, bread and cured meat and make a spread. Grab some hot cocoa and a blanket and have a little picnic together while watching the gorgeous sunrise.
The fresh air and sunshine can lift your spirits, and exploring new sights will create memories you’ll cherish for the rest of your lives. Use the positive energy and atmosphere to inspire a romantic conversation about all the good things your partner brings to your life.
4. Visit a Brewery Or A Wine Bar:
Instead of your usual bar date, sign up for tasting at your local brewery or wine bar. Even if you’re nowhere near actual grapevines, you can probably find an awesome restaurant hosting wine tastings in your area.
It will be a new experience for both of you and you can discuss what you enjoyed the most about them.
Even if you don’t have the tiniest clue about beer tasting or wine aromas, at the end of the day you’ll both end up having fun and a little tipsy which is a win-win situation.
5. Travel Together:
Get out with your loved one this Valentine’s Day and spend some quality time together. Enjoy some off time together and plan a trip to get away.
Surprise your beau by taking a vacation to their favourite holiday destination. Spend some quality time exploring a new town, eating great food, seeing beautiful sights and you’ll have a Valentine’s Day trip to remember.
Even if you’re on a budget, search for some travel sites that offer hotel deals or bed and breakfast deals and plan something sweet and secluded in your city or a nearby town. The experience of getting away from it all, even for a night, can light the spark you and your partner had been looking for.
6. Do Something For Each Other:
There are always things that you like and your partner doesn’t. Valentine’s day is all about appreciating the one you love.
Plan something for your partner that they desperately want to do. Spend half of your day doing things that you love and the other half doing things that your partner loves.
Gift your partner something they have always wanted but never got around to buying. It will make them feel special and loved. Spend the day completing at least one entry on each other’s list to grow closer while fulfilling a lifelong dream.
7. Go To A Comedy Club:
Even in the happiest, healthiest of relationships, outside stresses can put a damper on things. If you’re a couple who enjoy a good laugh together, head to a local comedy club for an evening full of laughter. There’s nothing that cannot be solved by laughing together. Moreover, it will relieve you of stress without breaking the bank.
Many comedy clubs offer tickets outside their door. This is perfect for people who didn’t get their act together before February 14. Spend the Valentine’s evening laughing till it hurts.
Valentine’s day is a celebration of love, feelings and romance. Tailor your date according to what is right for your relationship. At its core, it’s about celebrating your love and commitment as well as the unique experience you’ve had together.
