It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and it’s just around the corner. Though Valentine’s Day feels like the crescendo of romantic holidays, love is all year round. Whether it’s celebrating your anniversary or just enjoying a date night away from kids and work, here are some ideas for adding spice to your Valentine’s Day celebration.
- Host a Romantic Dinner
Rent out an intimate table at your favourite restaurant and bring your special someone. If the two of you have been married for quite some time, surprise them with this romantic gesture. Include candlelight, dimmed lights, and soft music to create an intimate setting. Alternatively, try a new restaurant that you’ve never tried before to spice up things. If it’s a special occasion like your anniversary, try something completely new and different.
- Go See a Show
Buy what your special someone is interested in and go see that show. Whether it’s comedy or musical you can have a blast together enjoying what each of you enjoys. Going with the date gives you the quality time your relationship deserves without any interruptions from kids or work. You are able to enjoy each other and truly focus on one another which can bring feelings of closeness to your relationship.
- Plan a Romantic Getaway
Whether you have been together for a year or twenty-five, it can be hard to find time for just the two of you; therefore it’s important to take advantage of any time you do have between work, kids, and busy schedules. Plan a weekend getaway for just the two of you. Travelling does not have to break your bank account. Many hotels offer great deals like romance packages that include breakfast in bed, room service meals, and other special treats.
- Play a Romantic Game
There are many romantic games that you can play, including hiding and seeking or truth or dare. These simple games are fun and daring which is perfect for a night of romance. With the right attitude on Valentine’s Day, you will be able to enjoy a fun date night with your special someone while having fun as well.

However I am here today with some great news: there are plenty more opportunities for creatively expressing your love this year than ever before-so get exploring!
How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day When You’re In a New Relationship
If you’re just starting a new relationship this Valentine’s Day season, then congratulations! You probably feel a lot of emotions that are typically reserved for special occasions: elation, excitement, and happiness. This is especially true if your partner is new to you as well. But now that the time has come to give them your all, it can be hard to know where to start; after all, most first dates don’t go quite as smoothly as you had planned. But fret not lovebirds. Here are some tips on how to celebrate Valentine’s Day when you’re in a new relationship:
- Start with a Good Conversation: It’s best to start off a Valentine’s Day date with a good conversation. We know that most of you have already talked about your experiences and past relationships, but it could already be time for another round of those talks. This discussion will involve the basics such as where you see yourselves in the future and why you’re so crazy about each other. You can even ask how they would like to be treated on this very special day.
- Make the Day Special: Once you’ve established a good foundation, it’s time to show your partner that you really want to celebrate Valentine’s Day with them. You don’t necessarily have to go out and spend lots of money, but you should at least do something that will make your partner feel special and chosen. Whether it’s a romantic breakfast in bed or a nice candlelit dinner, make sure you put your partner at the centre of the day and don’t hesitate to shower them with compliments and love.
- Convey Your Feelings: If you’re really a hopeless romantic, this is the time to spill your true feelings without getting embarrassed or feeling weird. Valentine’s Day is the holiday that celebrates being in love and sharing your feelings about it. So make sure you tell your partner how much you care about them and wish them a beautiful Valentine’s Day as well.
- Be Yourself: This is probably the most important tip on this shortlist. Don’t try to be someone who you’re not because that will only backfire; after all, it won’t take long for a relationship to crumble if one of the partners is false and dishonest. So just be the most genuine, open, and honest person you can be. When this Valentine’s Day is over, you’ll know that you went out of your way to show your partner how much they mean to you and it won’t come as a surprise that your relationship was really special.
