What is the true meaning of Valentines Day? Sure we all enjoy the chocolates, the gifts, the beautiful flowers, and the occasional “I Love You” teddy bear; but lets be honest, its really about LOVE, passion, and friendship. Here are five ideas to consider when planning your special day!
Spark a Fire!
How about planning a romantic trip to a ski resort, or a mountain lodge for the night?
Get there early and ski, go to the spa, whatever you want! (The Jacuzzi perhaps?) When the sun sets, cozy up by a crackling fire outside, and toast your favorite warm drink!
Come prepared with warm blankets, warm clothing, and make sure to be safe!
Do It For Love!
Take your loved one to a musical, or maybe a theatrical play? (Broadway?) Have a blast with it; dress up in your best suit or tuxedo, and watch her dazzle in a beautiful dress! Don’t forget to toast some champagne, or your favorite cocktail!
If you want to go all out, rent a limousine to take you to and from the event!
Food, Food, More Food!
Take cooking classes together. This is a great way to get hands on, and creative; learn to work as a great team in the kitchen! Soon you’ll be able to surprise each other with unique dishes for dinner!
Enjoy some wine while you cook and dine!
Pack up some supplies in a backpack, put on your rugged shoes, and hop on the trails for some adventurous hiking! Take pictures, admire the beautiful scenery, challenge yourselves to make the big jump off the rock! Always be careful and mark your trail if necessary!
If you want to be extra adventurous rent a canoe for a few hours, go fishing, or bring food and a blanket for a picnic!
A Day At Home!
Stay home and celebrate! Rent some movies, build a bed of pillows, have breakfast in bed, snuggle up under some blankets and be kids for the day! When the sun sets surprise your loved one with their favorite food, and drink.
Spice it up with lit candles, some champagne or wine, rose petals, and a gift; it never hurts towards your brownie points!
Most of all enjoy your special day with your special someone, remind each other why you love them, and cherish every moment of your life. Be Safe!
