First drop the kids off at school and arrange for them to spend the evening with your parents. Then take the day off from work to enjoy this Valentine’s Day in each other’s company. You can stay in the house, go out for brunch, or even enjoy a short day trip; simply be happy doing something together.
Stargaze on Valentine's Day
One of the most romantic activities, which never gets old, is stargazing. If you own a truck, great, and if you do not, just borrow one and head to the mountains for a picnic. Enjoy your Valentine’s Day stargazing and reminiscing about the fun and romantic moments you have spent together.
Get a Massage
Perhaps nothing is more relaxing than going to a spa and getting a massage. For this Valentine’s Day, purchase a couple’s massage package for you and your date. Your local spa might even have special packages for this day, so make sure to check those out first. If you simply do not know where the nearest spa is, look up resorts nearby, as they often have spa services.
Have Wine & Chocolate
If you are staying in but want to add a romantic element to your evening, how about a wine and chocolate tasting? Turn on a romantic movie and enjoy some of your favorite chocolate and wine in good company. If you want to know more about pairings, this guide from Country Living is very helpful.
Valentine's Day First Date
Do you remember your first date? Was it awkward, embarrassing, or romantic? Go back to the day when you started falling in love with each other and recreate your first date. For example, visit the same restaurant or recreate the first dinner you had together. It will feel as if you have gone back in time and it will rekindle your love for each other.
Dance on Valentine's Day
If you enjoy dancing, try booking a couple's dance class, or hit up a salsa club. You could also enjoy a live performance and dance to the groovy music. Some local dance studio might also organize a Valentine’s Day dancing event.
Go for a Ride
If you live in the bustling city, you might be tired of the rush, the light pollution, and the over crowding. To escape city life drive to the countryside with your loved one to gaze at the stars, or go for a ride to the nearest small town. Perhaps you could rent a room at a cozy bed and breakfast and do some sightseeing in the morning.
Spend the night at home cooking dinner together. Pick a recipe from the internet which you have never tried before. It might be something complicated, but it can also be a homemade pizza or pastries. And if cooking is not one of your strongest points, you can also join a class together so you can learn something new and cook a delicious meal in the future.
Go Ice Skating
There is something especially romantic about ice skating, the feeling that your partner will always catch you if you suddenly lose your balance. Many couples go ice skating in the winter, and it is a perfect way to spend time on Valentine’s Day. Afterwards enjoy a warm drink together.
Watch a Game
If you are both sports fans, why not spend Valentine’s cheering for your favorite team? For example, get some tickets to a basketball, baseball, or hockey game and enjoy that time together. If you are competitive and are rooting for different teams, how about making a bet on who will win the game? You can come up with something fun for the loser to do.
Get Crafty on Valentine's Day
If you and your partner enjoy making things with your hands, a crafty Valentine’s date is in order. Gather some materials and make fun DIY Valentine’s gifts for each other. It can be anything, from heart pillows, paintings, handmade jewelry, or any other gift you decide to craft. It is the thought that counts. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Play Couple Games
Whether you have been together for a long time or just started dating, couple's games are always a lot of fun and a great way to become closer to each other. How about playing “Truth or Dare” or “Never Have I Ever”? These games work well in the company of close friends but can also be perfect for a couple who wants to uncover each other’s juicy secrets.
Valentine's Day Trip Abroad
If you are lucky and your vacation aligns with Valentine’s Day, how about spending it on a trip with your partner? Traveling abroad to a warm country and spending the holiday relaxing on the beach, drinking cocktails out of a coconut, sounds like an amazing time. But when your partner is with you, it becomes much more romantic.
Arrange a Camping Trip
You might find it strange that anyone would want to go camping during winter, but it can actually be very romantic. Being in nature and enjoying the fresh air in each other’s company is a good way to relax and bond. Rent a camper and go somewhere where you can wake up to fresh snow and the sound of birds chirping. It will be an unforgettable Valentine’s Day.
