Deciding what to do on Valentine’s day can be a difficult task. It’s all about finding the perfect balance between fun and dreamy romance. Don’t panic though, they key is to relax and stick to whatever feels natural. Whether you plan to play it cool and keep it casual or get serious on the romance scale, we’ve got some ideas to help you make Valentine’s day as special as possible.
If you feel like being extravagant this year, then Valentine’s day is the perfect excuse to do that romantic mini-break you’ve been talking about. What better reason is there to turn Valentine’s day into Valentine’s weekend? Imagine spending your Valentine’s day sitting in a Parisian cafe or relaxing on the beach with a cocktail. To turn up the Romance a little more we recommend Paris, Venice or Rome as perfect destinations for a Valentine’s weekend away.
Do you make the world’s best chocolate mousse? Can you cook up a mean lasagne? This is your time to shine! Use this Valentine’s day as an opportunity to show off your amazing cooking skills to the person you love. There’s nothing more impressive than somebody who can cook great food. However, if you can’t cook, or you don’t fancy spending Valentine’s day stirring a saucepan full of spaghetti, then why not just go out to a restaurant? Although, be sure to make a reservation in advance!
This is a great idea for an adventurous couple who like to have fun. Activities like iceskating are a fantastic way to break the ice (no pun intended) in new relationships so if this is one of your first dates then you should give it a go. If you don’t mind the cold and the inevitable bruised knees and elbows, this idea could be for you.
See a Movie
This is an easy, casual and affordable way to have a great Valentine’s day. Whether you choose a cute romantic comedy, horror film, or a fast paced action movie, going to the cinema together is a classic Valentine’s day date which never disappoints. If you don’t want to go to the cinema, then grab some microwave popcorn and stay at home and have a romantic movie marathon.
Go for Cocktails
If you are looking for a fun way to spend your Valentine’s day and don’t mind splashing out a bit more money than you’d usually spend in your local pub, then this idea is perfect for you. If you want to take this idea to the next level then you could try making your own cocktails. We love a good cocktail making class! You’ll have so much fun learning to make all of your favourite drinks and you’ll leave with a new skill to show off.
Wherever you go and whatever you decide to do, use Valentine’s day as an excuse to put on that new dress and your favourite heels. Why not go shopping a few days before and buy yourself that cute piece of jewellery you’ve had your eye on?
You don’t need to go out and break the bank to have a wonderful Valentine’s day – you can have an amazing time just staying at home. Why not order a pizza and put on your favourite TV show? Just relax together and enjoy each other’s company. That’s what it’s all about, after all.
