With Valentine’s Day around the corner, plenty of couples are yet to make plans for the most romantic day of the year.
There is always this added pressure to do something unique and romantic, which ends up taking an unusual amount of time. So instead of putting so much pressure on yourself to come up with ideas for grand gestures, or the usual dinner date, here are some activities that you can try out as a couple.
Valentine’s Day Activities for 2022
Yes, there is nothing wrong with going out for a romantic dinner date with your partner. But what if you tried out something different this year?
Here is a list of activities that you can try out for Valentine’s Day 2022.
Get a Couple’s Massage
There are probably very few people on this earth who would refuse to get a massage done after a hectic work week. If you and your partner happen to be absolute workaholics, perhaps you both could use a massage to get rid of the pent up tension in your body.
What’s more, you will end the couples massage session feeling completely relaxed and stress-free. There are many spas or salons which have special massages for 14th February, like the aromatherapy massage, which contains the use of essential oils to help you relax.
For those of you who have had enough of going on dinner dates on Valentine’s Day, perhaps, it is time to take things up a notch and plan a full-fledged trip with your partner.
If you two have been together for a long time, a perfect getaway trip on Valentine’s Day could be perfect for both of you. Not only will this experience bring you closer, but it will also give you the chance to explore the world together.
So, plan a trip to the beach or the snowy mountains to make the most out of this Valentine’s Day with your partner! You could also just book a cabin somewhere on the outskirts of town to spend a night or two with a scenic view.
There is nothing more beautiful than volunteering for a cause with your partner. If you love dogs, perhaps you both could head to the dog shelter and take them out for a walk. You could also spend the day with the kids of an orphanage or distribute free meals for the homeless in the city.
There is so much more that you can do to give something back to the community together. So wear your headgears and think of something you both feel passionately about and sign up yourselves for a day full of volunteer work.
With so much to do throughout the day, people barely get the chance to cook for themselves. Even when couples want to spend some time together, they will either just order in or go out to some diner to not go through the hassle of cooking.
However, cooking up some recipes together could be the perfect activity for couples on Valentine’s Day. You can even customize matching aprons to break a sweat in the kitchen. Think of some fancy 3-course meal plan and work your way in the kitchen with each other’s help. You never know, this could be the perfect activity to strengthen your bond as friends and lovers.
It is still snowing in February. So why not take advantage of the winter snow and go out ice skating with your partner?
There is nothing that heals the soul quite like art does. Make a trip to the nearest art class with your partner and bring out your inner Picasso with the use of colours.
You could also join a pottery class to make potteries which you can then dry up and colour. These art pieces will stay with you two forever as memorabilia to look forward to in the future.
Looking for an excuse to dress extra fancy with your partner? This Valentine’s Day could be the perfect chance for it!
Book the tickets to the theatre or some opera show to enjoy with your partner.
Romantic Movie Session
If you would rather stay in and enjoy some quality time with your partner, watching romantic movies wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
Here’s a possible list of movies that you should add to the list – Me Before You, The Notebook, Crazy Stupid Love, Casablanca, Call Me By Your Name, and any other romantic movie that you can think of!
Throw a Valentine’s Dance Party
If you love hosting people at your place, then you can surely plan a well-themed Valentine’s Dance Party. All of you can dress up as much as you want to, enjoy good food with the company of your friends. Not to mention, you also get to dance the night out.
Who doesn’t love an arcade date? You could use the break to enjoy bowling, or indulge in any other games with your partner to have a great time.
You could also go to the amusement park for some more thrilling rides like going on a roller coaster ride.
Tickets to Comedy Club
Laughter is the best medicine for everything. So why not book tickets to enjoy a show at the nearest comedy club in town?
If you both love the mountains, going up for a quick hike to catch a glimpse of the sunset could be the most romantic thing to do for this Valentine’s Day. So pack your bags and hike up a mountain to make a picnic spread and enjoy the sunset.
There are a lot more activities that you both can come up with to spend some time together on Valentine’s Day. Remember to not put too much pressure on yourself to create grand gestures. Keep it casual and have a good time in each other’s company. Lastly, do not forget to end the day with a DIY gift box, a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates as a token of love!
