Valentine’s Day is hard: there’s so much expectation and hype around the perfect romantic experience. But the truth is: it should be about you and your partner. That’s why we put together 9 surefire ideas for Valentine’s Day all you heartthrobs without a clue.
So, this one is a no-brainer. Sure, it might be a bit cliche, but who cares because it looks AWESOME. A romantic professional photo shoot tells you and your partner’s story, immortalizing it visually forever. Great for making your friends jealous on Facebook too.
Give yourself some peace and quiet, for Christ’s sake! Hit the road together and get away from the hectic city. Dramatic landscapes and tranquility are a must for any romantic getaway. It’s a great way to spark that sense of adventure that every romance needs. Driving too stressful? Hire someone to do it for you.
Teamwork builds trust and if you can trust your partner with sharp kitchen appliances: your relationship is on sound footing. Take a trip to the store together, pick out the ingredients, bump into each other in the kitchen, and learn something new. Grab some wine and put on some music and you’re cooking with fire.
Discover new flavors you never knew existed. You can book a tour, or meander about in your favorite picturesque neighborhood, stopping in at all the cafes. Feed each other and indulge your senses. Fun tip: make it a competition to see who can eat the most. Winner gets a free massage.
Or let someone else do the massaging. The stress will melt off and you can enjoy each other’s company. The best way to do so is with an ice-cold bottle of champagne while soaking in a thermal bath. Order some fruit and spoil each other with sweets.
Everyone wants to be swept off their feet (admit it, men!). But, let’s just say not everyone has the ability to do so. Nothing embodies passion quite like dancing and undertaking something new together. The experience bonds: physically and mentally!
Sprawling cityscapes framed by a colorful sunset. Enjoy the seclusion and the view together. Make sure you ask the waiter for some candles and don’t skimp on the special requests. Request a favorite song or a “surprise” in the ice bucket (maybe a little box with something special inside?).
Ready to take the plunge? An extreme experience – like skydiving – will get your heart racing. The thrill of holding on for dear life makes anything seem possible. Once survival mode kicks in, it’s straight into each other’s arms. Netflix and chill can wait. We promise.
Let the waves take you away. It is liberating floating on the open ocean, with the wind in your hair and nothing but the horizon in front of you. Set the atmosphere with some romantic music and wine or go for a dip together.
