After a tough 2020, there’s no time like the present to show your loved one affection and appreciation. Valentine’s Day this year gives you the opportunity to do things a little differently and more special and romantic than ever before.
But like all things romantic, an impressive Valentine’s Day will require a fair bit of planning and coordination. A great Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you have to spend extravagantly beyond your budget. In fact, by focusing on what matters the most - spending the day with your loved one, while doing the things you love will be sufficient in making the perfect Valentine’s Day become a reality.
No matter what you decide to do on Valentine’s Day, here are 4 extremely romantic ideas for Valentine’s Day this year that will surely win the heart of your loved one.
1. Take a hike together
Fresh air, Mother Nature, and wildlife all around helps us embrace life. Beyond the many health benefits being outside has to offer, the beautiful views and sceneries along with the peaceful seclusion and serenity of being together with a loved one is a great way to unplug and unwind on Valentine’s Day.
Whether it’s a favourite hiking spot that you already frequent, or a new place you’d like to venture to, a hike with your loved one this Valentine’s Day can be a romantic gesture of spending time together while exploring natural beauty. Either way, fun is guaranteed given that you are in great company.
Take things further by bringing a romantic picnic filled with heart chocolates and canapés, as well as some romantic drinks such as rosé or champagne. A hike into the wilderness is a great way to spice up your relationship whilst getting away from the busy, bustling city life.
2. Play tourist in your own town
More likely than not, there will be somewhere you and your loved one would like to visit in town but never had the chance to.
Whether it’s a museum, a touristy hot spot, a beach, a park, or even a popular shopping centre, why not take advantage of this Valentine’s Day as a way to explore a new experience together.
Be a tourist in your own hometown and finally check off those places on your bucket list. Get into the role of a tourist and snap tons of pictures throughout the day as you experience your hometown from a different point of view.
The brilliance about playing tourist in your own town is in how you’re stepping out of your comfort zone together with a loved one and experiencing places you both have always wanted to go to but never had the time to. It’s also super fun to role play while you’re at it too!
3. The classic romantic movie marathon
A basic yet highly romantic way of spending Valentine’s Day with your loved one, create an awesome romantic movie marathon playlist followed by a romantic ambience at home.
