As Valentine’s Day gets closer and closer, couples are rushing about trying to come up with the perfect date ideas and personalized valentine gift to surprise their better halves, and even though they won’t admit it, they’re also rushing about, trying to one up each other to come up with the best ideas ever. Whether you are committed or are single, here are six thoughtful ways in which you can celebrate Valentine’s Day this year:
Throw a party
There is absolutely nobody that said that Valentine’s Day is only about couples spending their day with no one but each other. If you are in a relationship or even if you are single, throwing a party is a great idea to get all your loved ones together. However, make sure that your guest list is either exclusively couples or singles, or at least a healthy mix of both. Order a delicious valentine cake online and cut it with all your friends and loved ones.
Love comes in many forms, and one of those is the love of giving back. Again, it doesn’t matter if you’re single or not. Pick out a charity with your significant other that is about something that you both feel strongly about and spend V-Day volunteering there. Nobody said that your valentine gift had to be about you; your gift can go to society as well. This will definitely make you feel more connected with your partner and with society. Make sure you take a picture to commemorate the beautiful day! You could even get the picture printed on personalized items to immortalize the moment.
Amy Poehler’s character, Leslie Knope, on Parks and Recreation, came up with the idea of Galentine’s Day, which gives women the chance to celebrate all the ladies in their lives. A day of romance and love gets transformed into a day for friendship. While the show gave us Galentine’s Day, men too should feel free to use the opportunity to celebrate their bromance on the day.
Breakfast in Bed – For Dinner
Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday this year, so what that means is that people are hardly going to have any time to do the whole romantic breakfast in bed thing, what with the rush to get to work on time! However, why not plan it out and actually do the breakfast in bed bit, but in the evening? Play your favorite shows or music, light some candles, cook each other’s favorite dishes, and maybe order some flowers and chocolates to seal the deal!
There is nothing more thoughtful than the personal touch that goes into gifts. Try to make your valentine gift this year, with your own hands. And if you’re not that creative, you can always search online for some personalized gifts that let you add the personal touch without any hassles.
The extreme experience
If you and your partner love the adrenaline rush, you could opt to spend your day pursuing that extreme feeling. Look for some adventure activities nearby, talk it out, and enlist for a list of activities that’ll get your blood pumping.
Get ready and celebrate this Valentine’s Day like never before and like no one else!
