Valentine’s Day is celebrated with great gusto and excitement by the younger generation across the world. Young couples plan well in advance for this special day! However, not necessary that good ways of celebrating this day should be expensive.
Here are a few ideas that could save your pennies and yet make your Valentine’s Day especially memorable-
1. Catching a romantic movie together –
These days, most couples have very little time together as everyone has a lot of jobs that require their attention on a daily basis. As this day is especially about your loved one and about your expression of the love you share, get cozy at home with your partner, pick a favorite or romantic movie and celebrate your day together. You could arrange for soft drinks and pop corn and make it theater style.
2. Celebrate with nature –
Everyday tasks keep us so pre-occupied that we lose out on little joys that nature readily confers. You could take your loved one to bask in one such spectacular experience in nature’s lap on Valentine’s Day -be it a sunrise or sunset, a walk along the sands on the beach or even a stroll hand in hand by the shimmering moonlight. Such a memory will be cherished and treasured immensely as it is such special moments that make a day special.
3. Let your creative streak burst forth –
There’s no joy greater than receiving something that is made personally by the person you love the most. Since this day is especially for your dear one, you could decorate a unique box filled with crafts, fill little notes of love on slips of paper and present it to your partner. The personal touch that your gift carries will make Valentine’s Day truly unforgettable and complete for your Valentine.
4. Massages –
A massage is intimate and also rejuvenating. Valentine’s Day can be made into a day of relaxation for your partner. You could create a home spa for your loved one; invest in bath oils and scented lotions. A head to toe massage or a lingering back rub would set the perfect mood on your special day.
5. Indoor Picnic –
A picnic is always welcome as it is fun for everyone. You could create an indoor picnic for you and your Valentine to enjoy all day. A glass of wine, your favorite treats and some appetizing finger foods could really make your indoor picnic memorable. You could spice up the “dessert” by having it in bed. A few minutes of board games or card games or even a treasure hunt could add to the flavor of your indoor picnic on Valentine’s Day.
