Later this month, everyone will be celebrating love. Many of you will go all out to make your significant other, your friends, or family feel special. Tons of roses, teddy bears, and heart-shaped chocolates are going to be gifted. Just like every year.
It all sounds a bit repetitive, doesn’t it?
We have good news for you: the celebration can be completely different this year! Think beyond the commercial boom that is Valentine’s Day, and try to imagine innovative and unique ways to show your partner how much you love them.
These are a few:
Cook their favorite meal for a romantic brunch
Dinners are overrated. What about focusing on making a delicious brunch, instead? You want to go for the unexpected, so wake up early on a weekend and have everything ready by the time your partner is up. It will make their whole day!
Surprise them with a massage night!
Who doesn’t love a massage? If you’re looking for the most romantic kind of date, this is the one. Light some candles, get a nice coconut massage oil, wear something that makes you feel sexy, and there you have it. Your own stay-at-home spa with a twist.
Take them on a picnic date
COVID-19 has forced most people to think outside of the box when it comes to eating out. If you miss going to restaurants, this is the closest you can get. A picnic date is the perfect way to keep you and your partner safe while enjoying a meal outside of your home.
Go (backyard) camping together
If you’re anywhere near a campground, take a ride, and enjoy nature with your loved one. It will force you out of the routine and give you time together, away from all other distractions. If not, go ahead and try camping in your backyard! Set up your tent, bring some fun games, and prepare a romantic playlist.
Drive them around and watch the sunset
You and your partner’s minds are probably exhausted after almost a full year of social distancing and quarantining at home. This idea is simple, but it will make both of you smile and forget about everything else. After work, get in the car and drive them to a spot where you can enjoy the sunset.
