Are you tired of giving your date the usual overpriced bouquet of flowers and box of chocolates every Valentine’s Day? Does the thought of spending this special day at the cinema (again!) bore you? Sure, spending precious time with your loved one should be considered a great gift already but taking the effort to plan for something entertaining and meaningful to do together will truly make you boyfriend/girlfriend of the year. Here are some ways you can make this Valentine’s Day a special one for yourself and your other half.
- Prepare a mini piano recital
Do you have musical fingers? Even if you are a little rusty on the piano, all it takes is some time and effort to fine tune your skills with a refresher course. Some of the more romantic and suitable piano pieces you can prepare include the theme song from the movie “Romeo and Juliet”, “Love Theme” by Nino Rota, “Claire de Lune” by Debussy, “Scherzo No. 2 Op.31” by Chopin and “Sonata in D Minor” by Beethoven, just to name a few. Sit your date down on the sofa with a glass of wine and mesmerize him/her with these melodic and romantic tunes.
- Indulge in a massage together
Good times should be shared! If you and your loved one are homebodies and would prefer to stay clear of the crowd during Valentine’s Day by staying home, why not arrange for a couple of massage therapists to give you a spa experience right in the comfort of your home? Prepare your home by laying out scented candles and dim the lights for a truly unique and relaxing Valentine’s Day date.
- Enjoy a couple’s yoga session
Couple’s yoga allows you to not only improve your relationship with your loved one but also to tone your body and rejuvenate your mind. Valentine’s Day is the best time for the both of you to start on your journey to a better physique and it also helps you de-stress.
- Bake together
There is nothing sweeter than a couple spending time together in the kitchen whipping up a batch of delicious treats to enjoy. This Valentine’s Day, go shopping for a pair of couple’s aprons and head down to the grocer’s to grab all the ingredients that you need to bake up a storm. As you bond over all the creaming, whipping and mixing, you will learn more about your significant other and the delectable goodies that you both create will definitely make your Valentine’s Day that much sweeter.
- Go pretend shopping for furniture
This is a really fun game for new couples as it helps you learn more about your date’s tastes and preferences and it will bring the both of you closer together as you pretend to shop for furniture for a home that you may or may not share in the future. Set aside a few hours of the day on Valentine’s Day and head down to furniture malls and get started on ‘shopping’ for your home! The silliness of this interesting and amusing activity will have you both in stitches in no time.
A good Valentine’s Day date doesn’t have to burn a hole in your wallet, as the best things in life are usually priceless. Prepare for a wonderful day this V-day to create precious memories for you and the one that you love.
