Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and while we can expect plenty of engagements during the day, we also expect countless cute dates between loved-up couples at night.
Here are five sweet ideas for you and your loved one:
A weekend getaway
Valentine’s Day this year falls on a Sunday, which means that you’ll probably both have the day off to spend adventuring together. Pick a B&B or hotel outside of your city and whisk yourselves away to a gorgeous spot that you both love.
It’s not often that you get to spend time with a loved one simply relaxing in a beautiful location, so make the most of having the weekend to yourselves!
Re-live your first real date
Many first dates involve dinners, movies, drinks, or picnics, and all of them make for wonderful ideas for Valentine’s Day.
Replicate as much of the date as possible, including outfits and even your original seats if you can manage it. You’ll quickly remember the nerves and excitement of that first date, and you’ll get to look back to where it all began together.
Take a cooking class together
Couples who work well together in the kitchen always seem to have a special kind of magic about them. It’s a team effort that requires coordination and a lot of communication, which carries on to other parts of the relationship.
Taking a cooking class means that you get to spend some time together in a fun and relaxed environment, you both get to learn new skills, and you can enjoy the dish once you’re done!
When was the last time you brushed the dust off Monopoly for an epic game of being property tycoons?
Raid the games cupboard this February, and if you don’t have much to play with, borrow from friends and family. Pick up some nice wine or bubbles and enjoy a very affordable night in with your loved one and a few old classics.
Volunteering for a cause is a great way to gain a wonderful boost and feel a strong sense of satisfaction. Helping others while spending time with your other half will only increase those feelings, and you’ll get to see each other in a totally new and positive light.
From planting trees to helping out at community events, there are plenty of things you can sign up for together.
