Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and you probably want it to be as romantic as possible. Lack of interesting ideas you can try this year? Don’t worry, we have prepared a list of simple but very exciting activities that will make your holiday unforgettable.

1. Repeat your first date

To refresh old feelings, they need to be brought back into your head and heart. There’s no more awkwardness in your relationship, so your new “first date” will be a fun and incredibly romantic way to spend time together. Resume playback where you first met or had dinner together and finish the holiday evening where you first kissed or confessed your feelings to each other. Re-creating the first date is a chance to surprise your soulmate and fall in love again. Don’t waste it.

2. Have breakfast in the bed

On this special day, treat your loved one to a delicious breakfast in bed. This can be a fresh fruit salad with maple syrup, pancakes with peanut butter, chocolate crepes, cinnamon buns, banana smoothie, french toasts, croissants, or even simple sausages with eggs. If you aren’t in the mood to cook, remember that there’s nothing wrong with ordering takeout from one of your favorite cafes near you. And don’t forget the champagne!

3. Dance through a music playlist of your songs

There’s nothing that brings two people together better than music. Take care of your Valentine’s Day playlist to set the mood this holiday. Choose songs that spark memories of your relationship (your first dance together, your wedding songs, etc.) or simply the ones you know your soulmate will love.

4. Get a massage

Relaxing and having a great time with your couple is the #1 task for Valentine’s Day. Go for a good massage together and learn a few techniques from professionals to try them at home along relaxing music. To relax to the fullest, put aside all gadgets and devote time to yourself, completely disconnecting from the outside world. You can book a room in a hotel with a spa program. Go to the pool, get a massage, and then order a fancy dinner that can turn into a romantic night.

5. Write a love letter

Most likely, you send your soulmate messages several times a day. But on Valentine’s Day, they should be special. If you have to spend the whole day (or at least part of the day) apart, be sure to send your soulmate the most romantic or playful message – or even both at once.

Write a love letter and put it in a briefcase, bag, wallet, or pocket of your sweetheart. It is better that your loved one sees the love note already when they leave the house.

6. Play favorite board games adding some love elements

How about some fun games for just the two of you? For example, you can try “How much we know about each other.” Prepare some questions about you and your relationship. Then answer those questions in pen. Following that, you must examine each other’s cards. Or maybe you and your companion will want to feed each other by not using your hands. Sounds interesting, isn’t it?

7. Go on a trip together

If travel is your common passion, then going on a trip is the best decision for Valentine’s Day. You can discuss the plans with your significant other in advance, but it’s better to make a surprise.

Secretly buy tickets, book a hotel, quietly pack for two, come up with a story (such as that you urgently need to go to the shop together), and then confess that the store is in another city or country.

It’s not necessary to fly to far-away countries and spend a lot of money. An unexpected trip to a scenic hike or neighboring city can become one of the most memorable moments in your life as a couple.

8. Get to each other deeper with a bottle of wine

Open a bottle of your favorite wine and spend quality time asking each other these thirty-six questions that will bring you closer together. Experiments show that even strangers asking each other this deep stuff can fall in love if they are sincere about what they say.

9. Watch the night stars sky

Stargazing isn’t only a job for scientists but also a good idea for Valentine’s Day. Indeed, there’s nothing more romantic than looking at the stars with a person you love. Invite your soulmate on a date night under a night sky and explore the wonders of the Universe together.

10. Create romantic cinema at home

In the crazy rhythm of our lives, days spent at home become a real rarity, for which there is never enough time. Valentine’s Day is a legitimate excuse to lie in bed from morning till night, enjoying watching your favorite series. This day, you’re allowed not to get out of your pajamas, order food delivery, and think only about how great it is to hug your loved one.

If you’re an active couple and don’t want to watch your favorite romantic movies at home all day, try to replicate the romantic dates you saw in the movies. For example, dress warmly, go to a local river or lake, and lie down on the ice. Just like in the famous scene of “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”

11. Go ice skating

Joint ice skating to romantic music – what could be more appropriate during the winter holiday for sweethearts? Firstly, it’s good for those having a sedentary lifestyle. Secondly, it can be beautiful and graceful. Finally, after this, you must definitely warm up. So why not stop by a cafe for a cup of hot cocoa or a glass of wine?

12. Dine out to try gourmet food

Just imagine you two sitting in a fancy restaurant with a bottle of red wine. A waiter is serving a Cromer crab with lemongrass sauce and prosecco poached strawberries with caramelized white chocolate crumbs. What more could one ask for?

A lot of supermarkets and restaurants offer Valentine’s food deals so that you can enjoy the comfort of your own home with your valentine or galentine. There are so many alcohol-free, vegetarian, and vegan options available, so there is something for everyone.

13. Spend the night at a fancy hotel

For example, the Milaidhoo resort in the Maldives offers an unforgettable night on a tiny island with golden sands in a tranquil lagoon. You’ll enjoy a romantic sunset cruise on a yacht or a traditional Maldivian boat, where the butler will offer champagne and snacks. After dinner, the yacht’s crew will serve drinks and leave the couple alone by the fire in a romantic and starlit setting. A huge bed will become a place where lovebirds can enjoy privacy on a sandbar hidden from everyone under the magical light of the moon and stars.

14. Relax together in the bath

Bath at home is one of the best places at to spend valentine’s day. Light candles, throw bath bombs and enjoy each other company in bubble bath, as the beginning of exciting night.
