Valentine’s Day can be a tricky holiday to get right. It doesn’t matter if you are in a recent relationship or you are going steady. This one single day of the year can make anyone feel anxious. You want to get the location and tone of the day right, which means you need to put in some thought about what your other half enjoys. You also don’t want to go down the same, tired road as everyone else either. Here are a few unique ways you can celebrate Valentine’s Day with your significant other.
Letting Go of Your Inhibitions at a Karaoke Bar
Karaoke is a cheesy concept that might feel a little dated. However, get most people behind a mic in a karaoke bar, and they can attest to the euphoria they feel after belting out their favorite tunes. Whether you are the world’s greatest singers or not, a karaoke date is a fun way to let loose and let go of your inhibitions. If you both need a bit of a push to get on stage, a bit of liquid courage won’t go amiss.
Visualizing Your Big Day At a Wedding Venue
If you and your loved one are betrothed, a fun and romantic way to spend Valentine’s Day is by visiting weddings venues. Loved up couples who are already envisioning their big day can strengthen their bond together by visiting romantic locations and spending the entire day thinking about their future wedding. Not only will you get a clearer idea of what you both want, but you might also even end up nailing down a location for the big day.
Watching a Story Unfold at the Theater
A fabulous Valentine’s date idea is a night, or an afternoon, at the theater. Whether you’re both regular theater goers or you can count on one hand the number of shows you have collectively watched, watching a story unfold on stage can be magical. There is just something awe-inspiring watching live actors give it their all, and sharing this moment together will make the experience even more special.
Outside, All Day
Spending the entire day outside of the home can be a breath of fresh air for couples who live with each other. Although having long-term status with a live-in partner can be wonderful, it can also lead to a monotonous relationship. Taking the time to plan a day out where you are literally out of your home for the entire duration of Valentine’s Day can breathe life into your relationship. Think of activities you both enjoy doing and incorporate them into your day. Your itinerary could include a romantic walk in the park followed by a picnic, soaking in some culture at the latest exhibition in town, and indulging in good food and wine at a newly opened restaurant.
Relaxing at a Spa Retreat
Spa days might not be the most innovative date idea, but couples who enjoy being pampered can relax at a luxury spa retreat. Make the day extra special by choosing a retreat that is new for both of you and reserve space for your favorite treatments.
