Go to the rooftop bar where you had your first drinks together.
Revisit places where you left your imprints, had crazy laughing bouts, shopped till you dropped or even had your first deep talk.
Recreate the old memories with a new twist.
Even taking a relationship check-in at one of those places could be an interesting add-on and an enriching exercise.
7. Be their masseur
You don’t need expert masseuse skills to calm down your woman or man’s frayed nerves.
This Valentine’s Day gear up to give a delightful experience to your partner, with some calming body massage.
Grab a bottle of fragrant body oil, slather it indulgently and don’t stop at anything short of a relaxing and yet stimulating body massage.
Your bae will any given day pick it over a day in the spa, as it helps the two of you to reconnect at a different level of intimacy altogether.
8. Play Valentine’s day games for couples
An unconventional but romantic thing to do on Valentine’s day would be playing a fun Valentine’s day game.
You could level up the romance by playing “Kiss of Love”, where you blindfold your partner and guide them to a wall which has your poster. They have to kiss closest that they can to the lips of their Valentine on the poster.
You could also give a shot to a minute game, where you and your partner would be competing to create the longest stack of hearts.
It could be heart-shaped cookies, pillows or chocolates.
Another romantic thing to do on Valentine’s day could be to allocating the day to playing as many fun and romantic games as a couple, as you can and reignite the spark in your relationship.
9. Visit a local library
Visit the local library and read a romantic novel together, or check out love letters and poems of the celebrated romantic writers.
Let the silence and serenity of the library stand as a testament to your love for each other.
It may not be a popular choice, but certainly makes the cut for a quaint, romantic thing to do on Valentine’s day.
10. Take up a mini vacation
If you enjoy traveling but do not have the bandwidth of time for a leisurely vacation, hop on a bus or a train an hour away to see the local sights.
While on the local city tour, gorge on the local snacks, enjoy sightseeing, hand in hand, and bask in the glory of a day away from the everyday buzz.
Immerse yourself in your destination, and reap the benefits of a real vacation, time off from the routine mundaneness, without burning a hole in your pocket.
11. Take an inventory of your goals together
Sit down with your partner, talk and write about your big-picture goal, hopes, ambition, and roadblocks to them.
It does not sound like a romantic thing to do on Valentine’s day, right?
But diving into a serious review of your plans to achieve your dreams becomes an engaging and enriching experience with your spouse.
Talk about your plans for the future on how you propose to overcome the stumbling blocks, become a better person, create an expertize and build skills that will serve you better in your personal and professional goals.
This exercise will also help you in putting passion and commitment back into your life.
12. Go on a picnic
Pack in a picnic lunch, pick your favorite Sundae, nuts, frozen treats and a mat.
Bask in the sun and people watch together.
Stroll through the park, and engage in some fun, easygoing banter.
13. Create an ultimate movie marathon experience
Host the perfect ultimate movie marathon experience for your partner with a stack of movies of his choice.
Just a bag of popcorn does not make the cut. A hot chocolate drink or a hot chocolate cupcake is non-negotiable.
Bring on the works!
Don’t skrimp on the comfort, place tons of comfy pillows and a comforter on the couch to keep it cozy.
Lots of tea bags and hot warm to keep you warm and caffeinated and packs of cheesy nachos to accompany your marathon.
14. Break a sweat together
This one is a romantic thing to do on Valentine’s day, strictly for couples who are a sports enthusiast, fitness freak or like to stay in shape.
Working put together, pushing the limits and rooting for each other while leveling up your fitness game, sounds like fun!
