Valentine’s day is a special date, so why not make it great? You can give typical presents to your partner like flowers and chocolate, and go out for dinner like most couples always do. Or, you can think of something a little more creative to do with your special someone that will be memorable for the rest of your life.
Being present and living in the moment is a key aspect of building and maintaining a strong and healthy relationship with your partner. When we are fully engaged in the moment, we are able to give our undivided attention to our partners and connect with them on a deeper level. This helps to foster feelings of love, understanding, and intimacy.
Participating in activities together can also help to bring you into the moment. We made a list of 10 Valentine’s day creative date ideas:
- Re-create your first date
Go to the places where you went on your first date. Talk about your memories of how you were feeling, what you were thinking, and what you enjoyed the most about your first date.
2. Go to a concert
Concerts can be super fun with their live music and good atmosphere. If you’re seeing a band or an artist that you both like, you will share the feelings and the experience will be definitely memorable. Even if you don’t know the artists playing at the concert, you’ll get to find new music together.
3. Go skydiving
If you like adrenaline, skydiving will be an amazing bonding experience. You will get closer not only by the excitement that builds up before your jump but also by the memories you’ll have from jumping out of a plane!
4. Take a dance class
Perhaps a Salsa class will bring back the spark and mutual attraction between you. It’s fun to learn, you will have a new hobby, and you’ll get to practice together.
5. Have a boudoir photoshoot
A boudoir photoshoot with your significant other will be an intimate and romantic experience that you will only share with each other. It is a confidence booster, you’ll get to enjoy a day of pampering and have stunning images that reflect your relationship and your feelings for each other.
6. Have a money-free date
If you’re short on money, a good idea is to spend time outdoors. For example, hiking to a place with beautiful nature and fresh air. Take a backpack with you with some drinks and snacks and do a picnic with your partner. Or, go for a walk on the beach, listen to the sound of the waves, do a picnic at the beach, and enjoy each others’ company.
7. Go to Karaoke together
Find some good lovers’ songs and do a karaoke duet with your partner. You can learn more about each other’s personalities and musical tastes. If you’re shy, it’s a great place to let loose and not take yourself too seriously but just have a good time.
8. Make a relationship scrapbook
Collect all the pictures, trains, buses, and plane tickets of when you traveled together. Also, cinema tickets and anything else that you have saved from previous experiences together make a romantic scrapbook. This is a great way to talk about your memories together and document your special relationship.
9. Make a date night jar
If you can’t decide on what you want to do for your date nights, making a date night jar will help you to make that decision. Get a jar, some paper, and pens. Cut the paper into small pieces, and write down activities into small pieces. The activities can be things that you usually do together, for example, watch Netflix, go to the cinema, go to a coffee shop… Or, it can be something that you usually don’t do and it’s out of your comfort zone. For example, go ice skating, or go to a party. Get creative!
10. Go to a wine tasting
Take a trip to Italy, or call your local winery and do a private wine tasting with your partner. If you’re a fan of wine, it will be a fun and educational experience.
Overall, being present and living in the moment with your partner is an important aspect of building a strong and healthy relationship. So, take the time to focus on each other, engage in meaningful conversations and shared experiences, and enjoy the moment.
