It’s hard to believe that the Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Once again we’re seeing pink and red heart shaped candy boxes, roses and balloons everywhere. Sometimes celebrating Valentine’s Day can be daunting if you’re not sure what to do or how to celebrate, so below you’ll find a few suggestions of fun, creative ways to show your love this year.
1. Rooftop Dinner
High-rise buildings sometimes have great restaurants on the rooftop and the view is jaw-dropping. Whisk your man away this Valentine’s Day by taking him to dinner beneath the stars…literally. You’re so high up that you feel like you’re the only thing in existence (besides the other people dining there, of course). You’ll feel like it was a scene straight out of a movie!
2. Quick Getaway
Pack up and go. Make it somewhere quick and easy and preferably driving distance so that it’s very controlled and spontaneous at the same time. The last thing you want to do is find yourself at the airport during the holidays…it’s not a pretty sight. A few hours away from where you live is ideal because it’s like a little staycation for the night and you and your man will actually feel like you’re making a quick little escape. If you have children, pay someone to watch them so you can have this special time for just you and him to really celebrate without any distractions. To put the cherry on top, you might even sneak and contact the hotel you booked to see if they can throw a bottle of champagne and roses in the room before you get there for that extra special touch.
3. Party At Home
If you don’t have time, money, a babysitter, etc. to do any of the other things I mentioned, then just stay at home. It’s familiar, safe, free and takes away the stress of doing a bunch of planning away. It doesn’t have to be as boring as it sounds. Go to the grocery store, pick up a bottle of champagne and prepare an extra special meal for the two of you over a candlelight dinner (lobster tails are much easier to make than you think), cozy up with one another and you might even want to throw on your favorite song and slow dance in the living room together.
4. Beach Picnic
Plan a fun and romantic date night/evening on the beach. You and your partner can head to your local (and cleanest) beach to cozy up on the sand in front of a bonfire while sipping champagne and watching the sun set together. Or you can head out there once the sun has already set and cozy up by the fire and watch the fireworks light up the sky all over the city. Bring some fun snacks for you two to munch on as well and turn it into an impromptu beach picnic. It’s a nice, spontaneous way of celebrating a new year with your honey and enjoying the great outdoors as well.
5. Romantic Night At Sea
Many cruise ships will set up Valentine’s Day cruises that go out for about four hours which leaves just enough time to get on board, have a lovely dinner with your man and spend come real quality time. It’s one of the most romantic scenes you can imagine. It’s also a great way to bring the focus to just the two of you. It’s good to do this with just the two of you versus a large group, as it creates a great way to some extra bonding.
No matter where you are, if you’re with the one you love anything will do. But these ideas will help to just make it that much more special. Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s Day!
