Directly from Cupid comes 8 Valentine's Ideas just for you! Valentine's Day doesn't have to be sappy and corny if you're not a sappy-corny guy or girl! I've listed some unique ideas to make Valentine's Day sweet, special, passionate, and just plain fun!
TRY SOMETHING NEW
Live Arts (take in a show, musical, comedy, play, orchestra)
Forego romance and hit a Sports Game
Head to a Bouncy House for adults... you know, the new trampoline warehouses that are so popular these days
Skydiving - nothing screams romance more than risking life -- so go jump out of a plane
Go on a Double Date with fun friends
Take a Dancing Class
Ice Skating followed with Hot Toddies
Create a Scavenger Hunt for each other and take each other on fun adventures
WRITE A LOVE LETTER
Substitute this year's Valentine's card with a beautifully written love letter as a token of your love and gratitude from your heart to your spouse's.
Themed dinner and movie
Hire a Chef to host a cooking class in your home for you and your couple friends
Watch your wedding video and flip through your wedding pictures, then either reread your vows or create new ones
Just the two of you... play strip poker, naked twister, give each other massages.... you get the point ;)
Karaoke Party for your couple-friends and neighbors
CREATE A MARRIAGE VISION / GOAL BOARD
Grab a small poster board, colorful markers, scissors and tape... make a list of goals you have for your marriage and be specific. Of course you can put your dream home, big vacations, and 'bucket list' ideas on here, but go deeper and concentrate on your marriage as well.... list specific character traits you wish to enhance in yourself, list traits you want for your relationship. Arrange all of this neatly on your board and hang it somewhere you can see it daily. Looking at your board daily activates the creative ability in your subconscious and will enable you to naturally become more motivated to reach your goals. Goal setting is so important in marriage. Without a compelling future together, it's easy to get lost in the negatives... Set goals and keep your eye on the prize. This fosters unity, connection, and teamwork, and decreases silly bickering, disconnection, and lack of communication!
Pick a cuisine, google recipes, grab a bottle of bubbly, and have fun in the kitchen. Just don't forget to feed each other your creations!
Find an organization you both love and go volunteer together.
SURPRISE YOUR SPOUSE WITH A WEEKEND AWAY
Present your spouse with a gift certificate for a weekend away and head to a bed and breakfast, spa resort, or location you love.
RECREATE YOUR FIRST DATE
Go on the exact same first date you went on - or as close to it as possible - and talk about all the things you admired about each other when you met. Tell each other why you're more in love today than you were then. Share the reasons you respect each other and all the little things about your spouse that drive you wild about them.
