Now that we officially enter the month of February, the Valentines Day is just around the corner. It’s the month in which all of us get giddy, excited, and of course, in love. A lot of couples are now busy looking for a beautiful and ethereal venue to spend a romantic evening with their loved ones. Other couples are also busy looking for special gifts to give to their significant other.
When you’re in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks. ~Natalie Clifford Barney
If you’re tired of a typical dinner date and want to make this year unique, fret no more! For here are our top date ideas for you to make this Valentine’s day extra special as you celebrate it with your loved one.
If you cannot contain your feelings and you want to express them through a song, then a videoke night is the perfect choice for you. Invite your significant other for a karaoke night session and while there, sing out your heart’s content. You can also invite some of your friends and have some group date. Karaoke sessions also help you to relieve all the tension after a long, exhaustive day at work. Moreover, karaoke sessions also prove to be a great bonding time.
Tea shops are becoming more popular nowadays. Why not try one? A tea shop can be a great relaxation venue for you and your loved one, especially if your significant other loves tea. You can try out various flavors and variations of tea. A
A tea session will not only give you a chance to have a heart-to-heart talk with your lover, but it’s also a healthy course on your part. It’s healthy compared to drinking alcoholic beverages and save yourself from a terrible hangover the next day. Also, tea is rich in antioxidants that naturally relieve stress, so it’s good for your health.
An Evening Picnic
If you want to have a peaceful, lovely night with your lover on this special day and prefer to avoid the crowd and noise, an evening picnic is a very good idea for you. You can go to a park, or if you have a spacious garden, you could go outdoors and set up a picnic table.
What’s great about a picnic is that the surroundings are quiet, providing you the tranquility you seek. You can have a great heart-to-heart talk with your loved one while enjoying the cool breeze of the night. If the weather is good, this is also a perfect chance for you to go star-gazing. Or if not, maybe you can set up a fireworks display to surprise them. This could also pave your way to “pop the question.”
A Night at the Bookstore
If you and your lover are bookworms, then there’s no perfect venue for you to celebrate this special day than in a bookstore. You can go to a bookstore to buy your favorite book and chitchat about it. If you want to spend the whole night reading, you can rent a book hostel for the evening. Both of you will surely enjoy the peaceful silence as you surround yourselves with the smell of books and indulge in reading.
If you want to have some thrill and adrenalin rush on this special day, then maybe you can take your lover out to do some skating. This can serve as your bonding moment and an exercise to shed some fat. Skating is not just fun but also a healthy workout for you too. Skating can heat up your body from the chilly winter breeze.
Take in a Cooking Class
If you and your lover both like cooking a cooking or baking session is good for you. You not only get to bond with each other while pursuing your favorite hobby or passion, but you also get to cook a delicious, hearty meal too! You fill your heart and tummy at the same time.
Without Valentine’s Day, February would be… well, January. ~Jim Gaffigan
