There’s no denying that Valentine’s Day is a romantic day for couples. However, it can also be fraught with stress if you don’t prepare or plan well ahead.
If you need some great ideas on what things you can do with your loved one on Valentine’s Day, here are a few.
1. Serve breakfast in bed.
If you’re doing this at home, wake up extra early to whip up your beloved’s favourite breakfast staples. It could be anything from pikelets with syrup, butter and fruit to The Big Fry (farm-fresh eggs, smoked bacon, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms) or whatever they enjoy eating for breakfast.
2. Go on a staycation.
Enjoy some exclusive couple time by booking a suite in one of the best local hotels. Here, both of you can enjoy breakfast in bed and spend the day as you wish. You can book a couple’s massage, talk about your couple goals, enjoy a night out, go for a movie or a fancy dinner, or just chill and enjoy each other’s company without any distractions.
3. Re-enact your first date.
There’s nothing like memories to bring back the thrill of your sweet, romantic moments in the past. You can both dress up like you’re going to a prom or ball if that’s how you first dated. Or arrange to meet in front of the movie theatre or restaurant where you met for the first time as an exclusively dating couple. It’s all up to you. Be creative and commit to your part.
4. Compile your favourite couple songs.
Playing music that’s meaningful to your relationship is a great way to reminisce about how you fell in love in the first place. Your playlist can include your individual personal favourites aside from your couple and wedding songs.
5. Have a picnic on the beach and watch the sunset.
Wherever you may be in Australia, there’s likely to be a beach nearby. Either way, you can go for a leisurely stroll or drive to the beach. Bring a picnic hamper with all your favourite things, plus whatever beach stuff you need to have a relaxing date. Make sure you wait till the sun sets to have that perfect romantic ambience to cap off your time together.
Make your time together count
It’s true you can do all sorts of special things for and with your loved one anytime. However, you can also get caught up in the daily rush and forget—which is precisely why Valentine’s Day is special.
So, to ensure your beloved (and your relationship) gets the attention they deserve, make time to plan and use the ideas shared here to have a memorable Valentine’s date.
