The most romantic day of the year is just around the corner. It’s an opportunity for you and your partner to spend some quality time in one another’s a company – or, maybe, to get away from the pressures of work and domestic life and reconnect with one another.
Let’s take a look at five ways you might spend the day together.
Plan a Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunts are a lot of fun – and the idea is versatile enough to be shaped to your precise circumstances. You’ll find plenty of couples-themed scavengers hunts available online, or you can create your own with a little bit of planning and imagination.
A day out on the golf course is a great way to get closer to one another. You’ll need to both be skilled enough to hit the ball in the right direction, and it helps if you aren’t super-competitive. Bring your own golf driver, and rent the rest – or you can simply rent everything.
Golf is a low-impact exercise, given that it features plenty of walking, and it’ll get you outdoors in the fresh air. Plus, it’s an excellent stress-buster.
If you’d like to explore the countryside together, then doing so with the help of a pair of bikes can make it much easier. Once you’ve bought the bikes, getting out in the saddle is effectively free. Make sure you pick out a few romantic spots to stop for a break. You might even pack a picnic.
As days out go, wine tasting is a little bit more sophisticated. If you’re fortunate enough to live near a vineyard, then you might find that they put on tasting sessions to showcase their own product. The same might be true of bars in your area. If there aren’t any such places available, however, then you might elect to hold your own tasting session at home, instead. If you’ve got a taste for wine, this is a sure-fire winner, but even if you haven’t, it’s a great chance to see what the fuss is about.
Go on a Ghost Walk
Contrary to the modern image of the holiday, Valentine’s Day actually has pretty dark origins. Roman Emperor Claudius II executed the original St. Valentine on the same day in different years of the 3rd century. It was only later that the Catholic Church decided to associate him with lovers.
If you go for a ghost walk, you’ll be able to connect with the more macabre side of the holiday. Plus, you’ll be able to learn more about your hometown and offer your partner the reassurance that they secretly crave. There’s a reason that horror movies are so popular amongst new couples – terror has a way of leading to romance.
