Valentine’s Day comes once a year, so make it unique and special for your significant other. To show your love and devotion, plan a romantic experience for just the two of you. If you are homebodies, arrange a movie night with popcorn and pizza. Or take rumba classes to learn some passionate moves. Need more inspiring ideas? Check out the activities we’ve listed below.
Spend the Night in a Fancy Hotel
The best way to celebrate love is to spend the night at a fancy hotel. If you can't leave town for a trip, renting out a room will make you and your partner feel as if you are somewhere far away from home. Plus, some hotels offer special Valentine’s Day packages designed to bring lovers closer. Treat yourselves to healing massages, swim in the indoor pool, have a romantic candle dinner in the hotel’s restaurant, and just enjoy the high-level service. And don’t forget about breakfast in bed the next morning!
Hire a Private Chef
Instead of going to a restaurant, bring the restaurant home! Hire a private chef to make your Valentine's Day extra special. Surprise your partner with a multi-course restaurant-quality meal prepared and served in the comfort of your home. All you have to do is coordinate the menu beforehand and mention your dietary restriction, and the professional chef will take care of the rest. Relaxing atmosphere, great food, and just the two of you. You will never forget such a unique experience.
Try the Escape Room
If you enjoy watching detective movies, cracking codes, or you just want to challenge yourself and your partner — try an escape room experience. There are different variations, from silly and fun to hard and intense ones. Using your wit and logic, the two of you will solve different puzzles to find a way out of a mysterious room. Will you make it in time?
Take Dance Lessons Together
Ready to hit the floor? Book a dance lesson to learn some moves. Tango, rumba, bachata — there are so many incredible dance styles to try out. Just choose the one that fits you right and feel the rhythm. Through this shared activity, you will discover the side of your partner you might have never seen before. Also, your new skills will come in handy once the time comes to prepare for your wedding dance.
Watch Movies on VHS
Netflix and other streaming services, without a doubt, have changed the way we watch movies at home. But how about doing it the old-fashioned way? Yes, we are talking about VHS tapes. Hunt for a functional VHS tape player and a desired movie tape. Next, figure out how to connect everything to your TV. Once everything is ready, press 'play' and enjoy the nostalgia. Your partner will love the idea! Though such a date requires days (if not weeks) of preparation, it is worth the effort.
Go Thrift Shopping
Thrift shopping is always full of surprises. You never know what you can find. Visit your local thrift or vintage stores to look for unique pieces. To make the experience even more fun, challenge your partner to create a new look for you. Do the same for them too! Try on different clothes, accessories, and jewelry pieces, and don’t forget to photograph each other. No matter whether you find rare items or not, you’ll create some great memories together.
