Are you ready for Valentine’s Day yet? It sure is approaching quickly! No matter what you have planned for this year’s Valentine’s Day, here are 12 ideas to make this special day spark & your heart smile!
1. LOVE NOTES
I love little pieces of notes here and there. They always surprise me, because I find them in the most unexpected places. You can leave one inside of his laptop, in the car, in his wallet, or even in the fridge… the possibilities are endless, and they always make your other half smile.
2. GO OUT & TRY SOMETHING NEW
If you want to be a bit more adventurous, go out to a new restaurant that neither of you have been before. Choose a meal you’ve never had before, and enjoy a nice evening together.
3. RECREATE YOUR FIRST DATE
If you really want to impress your special someone, recreate the first date you two went on. This is a really cute idea. It might take some planning, but it will take you back to where it all started. :)
4. TAKE A CLASS TOGETHER
Whether it’s cooking, painting, dancing or boxing… anything that sparks your interest. Spending time together is fun, and you will pick up on a new skill!
5. SCAVENGER HUNT
You don’t even have to go anywhere. Create your own scavenger hunt around your house and make sure to be creative! ;)
6. COOK TOGETHER
Find a few delicious Valentine’s Day themed meals and cook something together. Better yet, decorate your meal with cute Valentine’s shaped details… a piece of toast shaped as a heart or heart shaped baked potatoes… just add a bit of loving touch to your Valentine’s meal.
7. KEEP IT LIGHT
Promise each other you won’t talk about shopping, bills, work or any stressful topic on Valentine’s Day!
8. REMEMBER WHEN...
Play a game of memories… sit together with a glass of wine or beer in hand and bring back the things you’ve gone through together.
9. WATCH SUNSET
Watch sunset or sunrise together. Find a cozy spot for the two of you and watch the sunset, soaking up a few last sun rays of the day. You might need a blanket to keep you warm!
10. BUNGEE JUMPING
If you are both brave and like making your heart pump faster go bungee jumping. There are even bungee jumps for couples, where you can share this experience together - literally!
11. BUCKET LIST
A lot of us have a bucket list already, but have you done one with your significant other? Sit down and write all the things you want to do together. Once you are done, pick a day on your calendar and start planning your first Bucket List adventure together.
And if you happen to live far away from each other or travel during that time… you don’t have to spend your Valentine’s Day alone. Plan a Skype call, so you can both spend hours talking and laughing.
And of course, all these adventures should be documented, so make sure to take a lot of pictures of each other. Better yet, hire a professional photographer for a romantic and fun photoshoot of just the two of you, ending up with beautiful images, which you can share for the years to come remembering your perfect Valentine’s Day.
Have a safe and loving Valentine's Day!
