As Valentines Day quickly approaches I hope you have already planned that special surprise for your significant other or to treat yourself. If not, I hope some of the ideas below will be helpful in making your decision. Whatever you choose to do in celebrating the day of Love I hope you and yours have a fantastic time and enjoy every moment making memories to last a lifetime.
By the way I scheduled our couples massage and we went last week. The first and last time we did a couples massage was 14 years ago on the day before our wedding. It was long over due and I am beyond happy that I surprised him and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment.
Its not always easy to schedule time to be alone and re-kindle our romance or have some well needed couples time especially when you have little ones around. With all the stress of work and keeping up with the schedule of activities for the kids some well-needed couples care is a must. A couple’s massage is a great way get away and disconnect from everyone and spend some well needed time focused on each other. You can get some great deals on Groupon.com for the spas in your area with a variety of options depending on your preference in massage options.
Paint and Sip or Painting Class
Paint and Sip is another activity that you can do to try something new. Some of the locations in your areas may have a couples evening and you can get some great laughs and bonding while trying to keep the paintbrush straight after a few drinks. You can also grab a great deal on Groupon.com for locations near you. Remember to drink responsibly and grab an Uber or Lyft to get you home safely.
If you are a wine lover or would like to just do something different with your love this Valentine’s check out one of the local wineries or brewery that have packages for couples taste testing. It’s a great way to relax and try some new wines or beer and introduce them to your love. Check out Groupon.com for some deals in your area. Always drink responsibly and the best way to travel is by Uber or Lyft after your taste testing and relaxing evening out.
Personalized Room Decoration
It may not be possible for you to travel for various reasons. How about a staycation where you decorate your bedroom or another room in a theme for a country or state that you would love to visit but unable to get there anytime soon. Surprise your love by decorating when they are away. You can do this on a small budget and possibly using items you may have already. Get decorations from the dollar store, print out pictures of areas, landscapes, etc and place in frames and cook a dish that’s from the area.
Take a Spin or Yoga Class
Check out one of your local community centers or gym to take a spin or yoga class. Remember to compliment your love during and after the session.
Recreate your first date, the Day you met or your Wedding Day
Grab your pictures or memorabilia from your first date, day you met or your wedding day pictures and videos. Grab your glasses from your wedding if you have them or any wine glass and toast to your love.
Sunrise or Sunset with your Love
Pack a picnic basket with a blanket, coffee and bagels or one with wine, fruit and cheese. Head over to your favorite park or quiet spot and enjoy the relaxing moments as the sun rises or sets.
