We have been stuck together for 9 months, now its Valentines day; Great! I know we are tired of seeing each other but heres some ways to kill the monotony for a couple that has been stuck together and now must endure Valentines Day.
Take a StayCation. I cant express this enough, get out of the house. You would be surprised at the difference some new scenery will make in your relationship. Hotel prices are low this is the perfect time; you can also upgrade for about $50 more to make the evening more special. Remember to always ask for an upgrade when you are checking in at your hotel.
Take a bath. Grab your honey bunny and de-stress with one of the oldest tricks in the book. To make it special grab a single rose ($7) and place the petals in the water. Grab an essential oil like Lavender ($10) put 5 drops in the water. Run a bath for your partner or do it together.
Utilize your outdoor living. Just being outside will make you feel more together. BBQ and have a picnic if you can and if you cant, bring some hot cocoa and baked goods, to head on a crisp walk. The outdoors is a great way to spend a Valentines day.
Don’t forget the chocolate. It isn’t Valentines day if theres no chocolate, grab the Godiva, do something fun like melt chocolate and dip fruit into it for a fun way to do something together thats easy and yummy! Another fun and easy idea is to make rice krispie treats and dip in chocolate, Yum Yum!
Grab a fancy dinner to go. Who wants to cook on Valentine’s Day?? Head out to some place fancy like Lawry’s they have a $65 per person Lobster & Prime Rib (or Salmon) dinner to go and enjoy your time together. If thats to pricey no worries, Applebee’s has two for $25, so easy and so thoughtful. Easy clean up, I suggest you splurge on dessert.
Movie Night. Grab a movie, popcorn, and Craisins or whatever your favorite movies snacks are. If you want to go all out you can buy the actual movie popcorn boxes from amazon for cheap. Make sure you set the mood, with tea lights and a completely dark room.
Good luck making Valentines day not just another day in the pandemic! Enjoy your partners! and Stay open to your blessings.
