Flowers and chocolates are all very nice, but what if you want to mark your Valentine's Day with something a little different? Here are some ideas on ways to celebrate your day while avoiding all the cliches.
Play a game
When was the last time you played a game with just the two of you? Pick a favorite from the closet, or try a new couple's themed game.
Spend some time putting together playlists for each other on your favorite streaming service. Choose songs that spark memories of your relationship or simply tunes you know your significant other will love. Then pour some wine, turn on the music, and reminisce.
One of the best ways to spend the day together is to choose a cause you're both passionate about and sign up to volunteer. It can make you feel more connected to each other and the community. Check with your local charity organisations for volunteer opportunities.
You don't need a telescope to set up a stargazing date. Just head to your own backyard with a warm, outdoor blanket and use a stargazing app to help identify constellations in the night sky.
Cook dinner together
A special home-cooked meal can be so much more romantic and relaxing than going out to eat at a super busy restaurant. Even if one of you doesn't have chef-worthy skills, you can still make a memorable dinner you will both enjoy.
