Each 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 on Valentine’s Day; however, spending time with each other is the best way to express your love. Hence, we have come up with

some unique Valentine’s Day ideas for couples


Romantic Dinner:


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 spending lots of money, why not arrange one at home? It is inexpensive and the best way to spend 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 their 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.

Indulge in an Exciting Activity:


Why not add some action and fun to your special day? It can be as simple yet exciting as compiling a puzzle, playing a board game, etc., or as exhilarating as going on a zipline adventure, bungee jumping, or extreme sky diving. If you’re an underwater enthusiast, you can head for snorkeling or scuba diving sessions.

Experience Sunrise and Sunset Like Never Before:


Kick off the special day by catching the sunrise with an airborne activity like a hot air balloon ride or a helicopter ride. An enchanting dining session is a surefire way to jazz up your special day, especially if you’re in destinations like Singapore or the UAE. There are fantastic romantic restaurants in Dubai, but nothing probably comes closer to a dinner or sightseeing cruise against the alluring backdrop of the setting sun.

Get a Spa Treatment:


Gift yourself and your beloved a couple’s spa treatment in an ethereal setting with the heavenly scents of essential oils and candles! Get a pampering massage, a refreshing facial, or a sauna package. It not only kneads away the pressure and stress of your mundane routine but also reenergizes and rekindles your love for each other.

Sign Up to Learn Something that You Both Enjoy:

There is probably nothing as fascinating as learning something new in the company of a like-minded person. This delight is manifold when it’s your spouse or life partner. So, make this Valentine’s Day memorable by signing up to learn a new skill that you are both passionate about, such as a cooking class, mixology, dance, music, etc.

Thoughtful Gift:


Everyone likes expensive gifts, but a gift in which you put a lot of thought, time, and energy into it 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. Do not forget to include pictures that are special to you. Write a story that goes with every picture, and it will be the best Valentine’s gift ever.

If you do not have time to make a scrapbook, make a picture collage or write a romantic poem. Writing a love letter would also be a unique idea, as nobody takes the effort to write 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. For instance, India boasts some romantic destinations, such as Goa, Rajasthan, Kulu Manali, Shimla, Darjeeling, Mahabaleshwar, etc. You can also plan a trip overseas; the best honeymoon places outside India are the Maldives, Dubai, Greece, Italy, and Paris. Several hotels and travel agencies provide romantic holiday packages during Valentine’s Day. You can choose the one that suits your interests and the budget.

The day you have to leave, surprise your partner by reaching their 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 will become suspicious. This is the perfect time to tell him or her about your plans. This would definitely be a happy surprise.

Book a Staycation:

If you don’t want to drive or fly to a faraway place on your V-Day, you can still make it special by staying in an exotic ambiance in a hotel or a resort close to your home. The bonus is that it lets you enjoy all the perks of a relaxed holiday without wasting your time on extensive packing, itinerary planning, or long-distance traveling.
