Shake Up Your Valentine’s Day
What’s your Valentine’s Day routine? For many of us, Valentine’s Day involves little more imagination than picking a nice restaurant, and all the hassle of fighting other couples for a reservation. If you’re looking for something a little more exciting this year, try one of our suggestions for a creative and easy Valentine’s Day date that both you and your sweetie will love!
Take a Stay-Cation
If you don’t have the time or budget to get out of town, book a romantic getaway at a hotel where you live. By leaving the house for a change of venue, you can leave all your stress of bills and dirty dishes at home so that you can enjoy the evening. Make the night special with drinks at the hotel bar, ordering room service, and leaving the responsibility of cleaning up to someone else! Get deals on hotels from Choice Hotels, Hilton, and Intercontinental Hotels Group.
Celebrate On a Different Day
We all know the struggle of competing for a reservation on Valentine’s Day. Instead of reluctantly taking the 3:30PM spot, just make a reservation for later in the week. Spend Valentine’s Day with a relaxing night at home, and then go all out on a day when it’s more convenient for you! You won’t have to deal with the crowds and you’ll be more likely to find a babysitter! Check out Groupon and LivingSocial for deals on food, drinks, and activities in your area.
Go Back in Time
Celebrate with a blast from the past and theme your evening around the year you and your sweetheart got together! Get dressed up in vintage clothes, make a playlist of the top songs of that year, and throw on your favorite movies you went to see when you first started dating. Then spend the evening reminiscing over your favorite memories together.
Have a DIY Spa Day
Use Valentine’s Day as a chance to unwind from the week with a DIY Spa Day at home! This date night is perfect for a couple looking to relax, and has the added bonus of being easy on your budget. Grab as many bath products as you’d like, this idea works whether you want to go big or small! We’d recommend starting with this Love Bomb Bath Fizzer from ULTA. Then add some candles to set the mood, a bottle of wine and voila!
