Love is in the air. Celebrate love with your partner, family and/or friends by doing one of these things.
You don’t have to take an expensive trip if it is not in your budget. You can stay in a hotel located in your city that you have always wanted to stay in. If you live in the suburbs you can stay in Downton and it will definitely feel like you are on vacation. Walk around downtown and explore the city you’re from, be a tourist for a day!
3) Spa Day
Just thinking about this is making me relax. This is a perfect way to treat yourself and your partner. You can schedule couples massage and enjoy amazing professional massages. Go to Groupon and search for these services in your city to get more affordable rates. Also, if you are not a big fan of massages, it sounds crazy, but I know there are a few people out there, than you can look up a spa you would like to go and relax in, and pay a utility fee most spas offer. This lets you use their facilities such as pool, jacuzzi, sauna etc, for a set price.
4) Road Trip
Road trips are so fun! Buying a ton of snacks for the road. Stopping along the way, discovering awesome restaurants and walking out of them wishing you had one of them near home. You can do a long or very short, less than a day, trip. Go to the next city and spend the day and/or night.
5) Dinner at Home + Signature Cocktail
I love finding new delicious recipes and getting to try them at home. I also always enjoy making new cocktails. They are so fun to make and even more to drink! Make the evening special by cooking a new recipe or pulling out the “special occasion” recipe, and make delicious drinks to accompany it. Also, these don’t have to be done together. Ya’ll can always order takeout and make a cocktail to accompany it and vise versa.
6) Wine and Paint
Head over to Groupon and look for a class that offers wine and paint night. If you’re on a budget you can always do a wine and paint night at home! Buy the tools, pick up a bottle of wine, look for an image to paint, and the last step is to put on a movie in the background or some music while you have fun exploring your artistic side.
7) Take a Brewery Tour
Taste good beer while learning about the process that got the beer in your hand! There are so many trendy breweries that are worth trying.
Most of us love baking, but it seems like there is never enough time to do it. I usually wait until there is a special event to show off my skills. Set some time aside to do this activity with your partner/friend/family. The best part is that you get to eat your creations afterward. Doesn’t get better than that!
9) Watch a live Band Perform
Wether you go to a bar to watch a cool band or attend a small concert, they are all a good time. Music is fun and makes everyone feel more alive.
10) Photoshoot + Sunset
Capture the moment. Go on a walk or drive to your favorite place in town and take pictures of each other and/or of the sunset. Right before the sun goes down is a perfect time because you’ll get a beautiful golden glow in your pictures. Capture the love between you and whoever you’re celebrating valentines day with.
Whatever you end up doing, I hope you have the time of your life with your loved ones. Lets choose love today, and always. Talk to you soon.
