Although it seems as if Christmas was only three days ago, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and each year it seems to follow Christmas’s footsteps and get more extravagant! Instead of sitting in a crowded restaurant dotted with candles and heart-shaped napkins, transform your Valentine’s Day and try one of these four intimate date ideas in the comfort of your own home. Return to the basics, have some fun with your beloved and save some cents whilst you’re at it!
Sushi is a fun, relatively easy food to make. Broaden your cooking horizons for yourself and your partner all in the name of celebrating your love. And your love will taste delicious. All you will need is your favorite fillings, a sushi mat (that can be obtained easily through Amazon), seaweed sheets and sushi rice. It’s also nutritious, as the health benefits of sushi have been widely documented and so it’s guilt-free! Finally, invest in a couple of pairs of chopsticks for some mutual, benign mockery.
This is a cute and quirky idea facilitated through the ever-growing world of the internet. We are lucky to live in an era where most things are a click of the mouse away – online shopping, in particular, has been a game changer. Now personal psychic readings, surprisingly, can also be easily sought out via the web. No longer must we venture out into the wilderness to receive an accurate reading. Why not book psychic readings for your couple from TheCircle and find out what the future holds for your relationship? They will call you!
The best thing about your home theatre is you can choose the films and nobody can moan about your choice of crunchy snacks (why DO they sell nachos in a movie theatre?!). The movie can be paused whilst snacks are refilled. Moreover, the snacks will probably be cheaper. Heck, you could even snack on that sushi you just made. To recreate the full movie theatre experience, you could even get a projector for your phone and watch the movie on the wall!
Of course, Valentine’s Day is not just for the love birds around us. Turn your Valentine’s into a Galentine’s day in 2017 and invite your best pals around for a pamper evening. Face masks, manicures, pedicures and your favorite films. Stock up on ice cream and bring your coziest onesie whilst the couples shiver, braving the cold to express their love. If you’re stuck for ideas, check out Cosmopolitan’s top 10 things to do on a girly night in. Think chick-flick level of cheesiness and embrace every minute of it! After all, where would you be without your pals?
These ideas are cute and are more personal alternatives to the traditional methods of celebrating Valentine’s day. Remember though, the day is all about love and should be celebrated in all its shapes and forms – be it friendship, romantic or even self-love. Whatever you do this Valentine’s day, take a moment to slow down and give a big ol’ ILY to those who are special in your life!
