10 unique ideas for Valentine’s Day
10 unique ideas for Valentine’s Day, because maybe we are in red roses and chocolate
Remind everyone in a relationship (or everyone in a relationship that is still celebrating!): Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Fortunately, you always have time to think about how you want to celebrate with your partner. If you are not a rose and chocolate (or if your partner is not), we have found unique and romantic alternatives to the classics, because well, sometimes the classics get boring!
To really have an impact on Valentine’s Day, it’s important to do something that shows your partner that you really care. Material gifts such as teddy bears and ID cards are fine, but do you tell your partner that you know his personality? Personalize your celebration based on your relationship or your partner’s personality. Making Valentine’s Day more personal will pay off.
Be inspired and start planning a memorable celebration. Do not press too much, as long as you spend the day together, that’s what really matters in the end.
1 Book a weekend getaway.
Book an Airbnb or Chic hotel for next weekend. Choose a place where you have always wanted to go, or stay local and opt for a “private house”. This does not have to be an extravagant trip, but only a few days of spending quality time between them.
2 Treat your partner (and yourself) on a couple’s spa day.
If you and your partner can not take the time to relax for a few days, contact a local day spa and book a one-day retreat. You can get facials, massages and really take a moment to let the tensions of the world melt. Then return to your life and your relationship feeling refreshed and ready for anything.
3 Create an album full of favorite memories.
Showing your partner that you really care can really make Valentine’s Day this year a special time. Compile favorite photos, entries from places you’ve traveled, jokes made, etc., and place them in a well-decorated album. You two can spend the dinner and remember all the good times you shared.
4 Recreate your first date
Now that the nerves have left the building, recreating your first date is a fun and nostalgic way to celebrate your relationship. You can also take advantage of this idea. Start with the restaurant that you first ate months or years ago and ended the night at the bar where you realized you were in love. Put meaning into the night and your partner will fall in love with you again.
5 Explore your partner’s Amazon wish list.
We have all stacked wish lists from Amazon. Nix the nerdy chocolates and roses and get your partner those headphones that they have peeked at or these new pairs of shoes. This is a great idea for new couples who do not know exactly what others like. An Amazon wish list is public information, people! It is an evidence.
6 Write love notes.
No, you do not have to start each note with “Roses are red, violets are blue.” Writing a letter or note of importance to your partner, indicating how much you consider, can mean more than any material gift.
7 Set goals for the future
Think of it as the image of a couple’s vision. Do you expect to move to a house together in the next five years? Maybe you’re trying to have a baby soon. Or, you may want to go on romantic tropical vacations in the next year. Whatever goals you have for your relationship, write them down or save them on a poster.
8 Do your favorite activity
Climb, dance, dine: do whatever you want to do, take the time to do Valentine’s Day. It’s a simple way to celebrate, but if you have fun with each other, it does not matter if the activity is out of the ordinary.
9 Or, do something you’ve never done before.
Alternatively, you and your partner can try something they have never done before. It is an excellent way to get out of the routine of a relationship or to introduce something new into your life. Take the opportunity of something new and you two could learn something about yourself or about each other.
10 Go out with your best friends
Feel free to spread and share the love on Valentine’s Day. Sometimes a double or triple date can be more fun than alone. Go to your favorite restaurant or bar with your group and celebrate the romantic love and love of a friend at the same time.
