Most couples love the romantic bliss of valentine’s day. The vibe of the day lets you forget everything else and focus on the amazing love you share with your significant other.
As much as couples look forward to this special season, it can be hard to figure out what to plan. If it were possible, we would all choose to fly out to our dream destinations but for now, we have to work with what we have.
And it’s actually not as bad as you may think. Staycations offer you a chance to explore options at your own town without having to travel while saving cash.
This year, a staycation valentine is the best option for many couples especially with the pandemic still going on.
So, don’t stress because you can still have the best valentine’s staycation of your life with these few ideas:
- Try a classic dinner date
Sometimes you don’t have to think too hard of what you can do to celebrate this day. Some couples just like to have a romantic diner at a restaurant nearby and it’s actually a great idea because there are no distractions.
This year you can add a new twist by trying a new restaurant you’ve never been to before or still, go to the one that you’ve always loved as a couple.
- Spend the day with nature
You might be looking for something that will help you connect and relax for the day. There are so many ways you can unwind together but being in nature is one of the best options to try.
Imagine being in a peaceful location where you can relax and talk about the fond memories you have while the birds are chirping around you. So romantic.
This idea is pocket friendly and probably doesn’t require a lot of planning.
- Spruce up movie night
Watching movies together is nothing new for most couples. It is something that probably happens every week but since it’s valentine’s day, you can make it extra special.
Try and do something fun like ordering corny, matching valentine’s outfits and prepare some snacks for you to enjoy.
You can even put up some crazy valentines themed decorations and order a special cake just for the tow of you to boost the holiday mood at home.
- Have a two people party
What is better than partying with your bestie in the comfort of your home?
This is a plan you can try especially if you are on a tight budget but still want to celebrate the love you have for each other in a fun way.
You can buy some wine for the night, set up your favorite playlist and dance the night away until the sun comes up.
If you are in a long-distance relationship, you can still have a virtual party.
- Play risqué couple games
Playing spicy games together can also bring some humor and romance into your relationship for valentine’s day.
There are lots of games to choose from so take time to research and explore some of the games you might enjoy as a couple.
This will also rejuvenate the sexual chemistry you have so it is definitely a way of keeping the bedroom spark alive.
