It’s the most romantic time of the year. With Valentine’s Day approaching, gift shops are filled with romantic gifts and the air with love. Couples are making special plans for this special day. Each one of us would like to do something unique for our loved ones; something that is different from what we did last year or the years before that. Exchanging gifts is the most common trend of Valentine’s Day; however, spending time with each other is the best way of expressing your love. Hence, we have come up with some Unique Valentine’s Day ideas for couples.
Yes, going for a romantic dinner is the most common way of spending Valentine’s Day. But rather than having dinner at a crowded restaurant and spend lots of money, why not arrange one at home. It is inexpensive and the best way of spending some quality time with your partner. If you do not have time, you can order food from your partner’s favorite restaurant. But cooking together would make it even more romantic.
If you want to surprise your partner, leave early from work and cook his/her favorite dinner. You do not have to do anything over the top; a simple dinner would also do. However, it is important to create a romantic atmosphere at home. Lay a special table for two and light some aromatic candles. Play some romantic music and get ready to surprise your partner. If you have a backyard, terrace or patio, it would be a great place to arrange your dinner.
Everyone likes expensive gifts but a gift in which you put a lot of thought, time and energy would be appreciated and treasured more. A scrapbook of your time together can never go wrong as a Valentine’s Day gift. You can post pictures, right from the time you started dating to the present time. Do not forget to include pictures that are special for you. Write a story that goes with every picture, and it will be the best Valentine gift ever.
If you do not have time to make a scrap book, make a picture collage or write a romantic poem. Writing a love letter would also be a unique idea as nobody takes the effort of writing a letter in this age of emails and SMS. This would be a great idea, especially if you are in a long distance relationship and cannot spend time together on Valentine’s Day.
It is a great time to take a break from work and head for a vacation. Some of the most romantic destinations in India where you could go this time are Goa, Rajasthan, Kulu Manali, Shimla, Darjeeling, Mahabhaleshwar, etc. You can also plan oversees holiday to places like Maldives, Dubai, Greece, Italy, Paris, etc. Several hotels and travel agencies provide romantic holiday packages during Valentine’s Day time. You can choose the one that suits your interests as well as budget.
Picnic and Movie Night:
With the arrival of malls and a variety of restaurants, the trend of going to a picnic has come down considerably. So, why not go to a picnic on this Valentine’ Day? Wake up early and prepare a picnic basket for the two of you. It need not be elaborate; some finger foods, sandwiches, fresh fruits and chocolates for desert would be great. Go to a park or a beach and spend the day together under the sun. To end the day, you can watch a movie at the nearby theater. However, if you want to escape the crowd, rent out your favorite movie, and watch it with your partner.
Plan a Surprise:
Who doesn’t love surprises? Be it a guy or a gal, surprises from your loved ones are always welcome. Plan a weekend holiday without telling your partner. Book your tickets, hotel room and pack your bags without letting your partner know anything about it. It would be great if you could drive down to the place. The day you have to leave, surprise your partner by reaching his/her office at the end of the day. You still do not need to tell about the actual surprise. Once you are on a different route, away from your home, your partner would become suspicious. This is the perfect time to tell him/her about your plans. This would definitely be a happy surprise.
Valentine’s Day Party:
Several hotels and malls arrange special Valentine’s Day party every year. This is a great way of spending time with your loved one. There would be food, drinks, dancing and entertainment for all the couples. If you do not have time to go on a holiday, this would be a great idea. However, the passes for such parties sell like hot cakes. So, do not delay and get your passes to a good party immediately.
Some other Valentine’s Day ideas for couples would be to go for a spa treatment together or recreate your first date and many such things. To make your truly special, all you have to do is put a lot of thought. Even a small thing done with lot of efforts would make the Valentine’s Day a memorable one for your partner and you.
