Hello lovelies, welcome back to my blog and if you are new here I hope you enjoy this post. Today is Valentine’s Day and lots of couples will be celebrating it. When I was younger a bouquet of red roses, a box of chocolate and dinner seemed to be the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Times have changes and I would rather do something new that I will remember than the usual cliché valentine date that most couples do.
I wanted to give those who are celebrating unique and inexpensive ways to celebrate this year. If you don’t celebrate these are still fun ideas that you can do with you husband.
Prepare his favourite breakfast
This is the perfect way to start this special day, when you cook food with love it tastes so much better than just going out for breakfast.
Go to a museum
This can also be a family day out, if you have a little one like us. Most big cities have at least one museum and chances are you might have not gone there as a couple before.
Go for a walk
When leading an active life especially with kids, it hard to remember the last time you took a nice walk together as a couple. Get someone to watch the babies for an hour and go for a walk together holding hands. If you can’t get someone to watch the baby (it is Tuesday after all) the baby can also join you in your walk in his stroller.
Make a bucket list together
This is what my husband and I are doing this year. We are writing down all things we want to do together as a couple before we die no matter how unattainable it is at this time. Years later we can look at this and maybe even tick a few things off our bucket list.
You both pick a movie and watch both of them at the comfort of your home after your baby’s bedtime.
Go out for some dessert
If you have a sweet tooth like us then nothing says “I love you” like a good dessert. You can get a range of different desserts at the fraction of the price if you decide to go for a 4-course meal on Valentine day at any restaurant. let’s face it going out for just dessert also saves you time because even if you take the baby along chances are you will finish your dessert before the baby gets bored and throws a tantrum.
Prepare dinner together
You don’t have to be a culinary expert to make a nice dinner. It can be something as simple as preparing pizza together and picking your favourite topping. If you don’t know how to make the pizza base there are numerous video on YouTube and if it all fails you can always buy the base from the supermarket. The good thing about dinner you can prepare it after the baby’s bedtime.
I saved the best to last; this is by far my favourite idea. When we were newly weds we used to pray together all the time and this is a way to connect as a couple spiritually.
As I mentioned earlier even if you don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day you can still try these ideas with your partner.
Are you doing anything special on Valentine’s Day this year?
