Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us. Tired of giving the same old greeting card, chocolates or wilted flowers? Try livening up your Valentine’s Day with one of these ideas.
Give An Experience. Treat your Valentine to a very special and memorable date this Valentine’s Day. A special outing together is a unique way of creating a memory that will last a lifetime! If you are feeling a little brave, go for something a bit adventurous like a Hot Air Balloon Ride. If your man enjoys life a little bit more down to earth, perhaps he’d love tickets to see his favorite team play or an evening out at a rock concert.
Give A Getaway. A weekend for two at a local bed and breakfast is a perfect romantic retreat that won’t break the bank. B&B’s are the perfect combination of relaxed comfort and luxury. If you stay close to home there isn’t pressure to sight- see or get out and tour unless you really want to. The ultimate treat might be to just sleep in, take a relaxing nature walk or even go wine tasting. The point is to enjoy a slower pace and quality time together.
Take a Spa Day. Many local Day spas offer Valentine’s specials perfect for couples. This relaxing indulgence might be the perfect way to spend a romantic day together. Day spas offer a wide variety of services including many types of massage. Spending the day with your Valentine at the spa can be very sensual as well as rejuvenating. Look for Day spas in your neighborhood that offer Valentine’s Day specials designed for couples.
Get Crafty! Its very easy and fun to hand crochet or knit a scarf and you can probably do it in a day or two. Another easy homemade idea is to hand dip strawberries in chocolate. This is a very easy treat you can make yourself for your Valentine for maximum impact and little effort. You can create a very cute and original Valentine card to go with your gift by using a blank puzzle that you can buy and personalize yourself with colored markers to create your own message. Your man will have to put the puzzle together before he can read your very personal message created just for him.
Sexy Costume. This is the gift that will be enjoyed as much by you as it will be by your sweetheart. Whether you decide to go for something sweet and innocent or to brave something a little more wild, a sexy costume is a gift that is sexy and fun for both of you. He’s going to love that you picked out something so pretty just for a special Valentine’s Day with him.
Cook Dinner Together. Making a meal together can be a great way to connect with your guy. Learn to make a new dish if you feel brave or even take a cooking class together if you like. Don’t worry if you don’t really know what you are doing or if things don’t turn out exactly perfect—that’s all part of the fun. Set the mood for your meal by lighting some candles and then open a nice bottle of wine so you can fully enjoy your culinary creations.
No matter what you choose to do with your special someone this Valentine’s Day make it something fun and memorable that will create a lasting impression. Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be about the money spent on a gift as much as it is about perpetuating loving feelings and making memories that you will have for a lifetime.
