It is finally February, and we can see Valentine’s Day peeking around the corner.
Before you get swept up in the whirlwind of red roses, champagne flutes and dinners that cost you your life savings remember that valentine’s day is about celebrating love and not about thoughtless grand gestures.
We know many people around the world celebrate Valentine’s Day by showing appreciation to the people they love or adore. It is also a time to appreciate friends in some social circles and cultures.
Whether you are spending the day with someone special or getting together with friends, here are some ideas for a laid-back cost-effective valentine’s day celebration.
HAVE AN AT HOME SPA NIGHT
Who says that people need a companion for this one day of the year? Treat yourself to a spa or a long bubble bath. The idea is to celebrate and enjoy the comforting feeling of love by loving your partner or yourself as well. Splunge on aromatherapy candles, face masks, pedicure kits and body scrubs.
SPEND QUALITY TIME WITH YOUR LOVED ONES
Be available for what’s important and spend quality time with your loved ones. The easiest way to spend quality time with loved ones is to involve them in your day. Go out to a nice restaurant or have a special dinner. Cuddle with your significant other on a couch and watch a movie. Try to avoid distractions, such as surfing the internet, chatting on the phone while people are around, or deciding to do other things by yourself or with another group of people.
BINGE WATCH ROMANTIC MOVIE SCENES
Thankfully, the movie world is replete with dreamy and romantic gems that can warm the coldest of hearts out there. From Noah kissing Allie in the rain, to Amanda teaching Dawson how to dance. So why not cuddle under a cozy blanket swooning over your favorite scenes of all time?
HAVE AN INDOOR PICNIC
You don’t need to visit the park to have a picnic, turn your living room into the perfect picnic spot. Buy all the snacks, tidbits, and drinks you need, roll out a mat and lounge out with your partner, nonchalantly munching on junk, talking about everything, and falling in love, over and over again!
ENJOY KARAOKE AT HOME
You and your significant other deserve to be serenaded so with a karaoke system, team up and belt out love ballads all night! It’s a party for two! Remember, the love you share deserves to be sung from every rooftop.
BOND OVER VIDEO GAMES
Video games are perfect when celebrating a low-key, laid-back Valentine’s Day at home! Joining forces to work for a common goal will only bring you closer together as a couple and strengthen your bond as the two-person team that you are! Cheer your partner on as they go on an epic zombie killing spree and show that you mean it when you say you have their back, always!
PLAN YOUR DREAM VACATION
Flying out for a holiday doesn’t seem so easy, but that’s all right! Why not spend Valentine’s Day fantasizing about a rejuvenating vacation with your partner? Plan every detail of your dream vacation and spend hours daydreaming by each other’s side! Hopefully if your schedules permit, why not venture out on a staycation?
