Valentine's Day: 6 Ideas To Make Your Valentine's Day Interesting
Showing your Valentine just how much he means to you is almost impossible. A good Valentine's Day is priceless, so doing it on a budget shouldn't take too much effort -- it's coming up with ideas that is a challenge. To make it easy, we put together 6 ideas to make your Valentine's Day interesting on a budget.
Making memories is often more precious than any gift you could give your Valentine. Make your Valentine's date an adventure to add to your memory box. You don't have to get on a plane -- try driving somewhere neither of you have been to and be a tourist for the weekend. If you want to make it more interesting, try taking a train to a nearby city you haven't gotten around to -- the train might be an adventure itself!
Making dinner at home for Valentine's Day is probably overdone, but there are ways to make it interesting and memorable. Try making a game out of it and get out your best cookbooks for a little culinary challenge. Have your Valentine surprise you with what he thinks is your favorite thing to eat; you do the same for him and unveil the meals as a surprise for each other. Whether you're both right or you're both wrong, it's an experience that can never be duplicated.
Miss You Much
As the old adage goes, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder." As a Valentine's challenge, remake that night before your wedding and spend the night (or two, depending on how much you want to miss your Valentine) in separate places. Make a date to meet each other out for dinner (or at home, as long as sitting down to eat is the first time you see each other again). It makes an interesting and exciting Valentine's Day when you see each other every day.
Teach Each Other Something
You're two separate people with different hobbies and interests. For the evening, teach your Valentine something you like to do and have him teach you something he likes to do. You don't have to teach him anything complicated like crafting personalized jewelry. It's just an exercise in getting inside the head of your Valentine and understanding what gets each other excited.
Get out a notebook and pen and start making a bucket list of the things you want to do as a couple. List everything -- big and small -- and celebrate by ticking off at least one thing for Valentine's Day. To make it more interesting, set deadlines for each item. This is the Valentine's Day you'll relive every time you complete an activity on your list.
Search & Seizure
It's been done, but a scavenger hunt never gets old. Separately and secretly, come up with events unique to your relationship and build a scavenger hunt around the memories of the event. You'll be guessing as you go along, creating new memories out of your old memories.
