Planning to spend this Valentine’s Day with chocolates and flowers just the way you did the last few? Tsk tsk. Are you boring or what? Get creative and think out of the box this Valentine’s, we say! If you need some inspiration, we’ve got you five ideas to get you started. Check them out.
Be wacky: Do you have an absolutely wacky dream in your bucket list that you are too scared to accomplish? Share it with your partner this Valentine’s and live that dream together with him! Whether it’s bungee jumping or making love on the beach or even kissing in the middle of traffic jam, just do it! Better still, ask your partner what his dream is and go that extra mile to make it happen. Believe me, there is nothing more romantic than living a long cherished dream together!
Single’s party: So you are single and feeling bummed by all the red hearts and chocolates everywhere, eh? Don’t worry! We have a solution for you that does not include sending hate mail/ wearing black/ going anti-Valentine! Instead of being sulky, bring out the party girl in you and enjoy your “singledom!” Call out all your single friends and their single friends and go wild. Who knows, you might even end up meeting your future Valentine there! *wink wink*
Reminisce your past: Don’t let the good old days which brought you two together just fade away. Take a day off this Valentine’s to walk down memory lane again. Visit that rundown park, the coffee shop next to your college, the beach and all those places you used to hang out at. The place where you first met, had your first date, shared your first kiss and any other firsts you can think of! It will be the most unforgettable and romantic Valentine’s Day of your life.
Spread the love: Valentine’s Day is not just for your better half. You can spread the love to others too. Volunteer at an orphanage or spend some time with street kids. Make their Valentine’s Day a colourful one with loads of art material, balloons etc. Complete their experience with a snack or candy. Trust me, there’s no better feeling than making someone’s day. Bringing joy to these kids’ faces is more than fulfilling.
Get cheesy: Do something outrageous and unexpected for your partner. For instance, if you aren’t usually the kind who is into cards and flowers, surprise him by writing a really cheesy poem and dedicate it to him over the radio! You could also take him out to dinner and surprise him by getting up in the middle of the restaurant and crooning a love song. When you’re old and wrinkly, this will definitely be his fondest memory.
