For many, when Valentine’s Day is mentioned, the immediate thoughts often revolve around sex and gifts. However, Valentine’s Day should encompass expressing love in every possible way, beyond the typical ‘eat and be eaten’ narrative.
Here are some ideas to help you make the most of Valentine’s Day:
Perhaps take this opportunity to learn the lyrics to your favourite songs and sing along with your spouse. Remember those days when you actually knew the lyrics by heart? Get nostalgic with your better half and serenade them with their favourite tunes. You can even opt for a duet. If you can afford a projector, go for it, otherwise, your phone or laptop will do just fine.
Go for a Drive
When was the last time you went for a drive while jamming to your favourite songs? Take your better half on an adventure. Imagine a drive to Namawojolo or Lukaya for some delicious roadside chicken and back. But before you surprise them with such spontaneity, make sure your partner is on board with such impromptu plans. Being spontaneous and changing up the usual dinner routine can add excitement to your Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Treasure Hunt
Instead of relying on the usual delivery guy routine, make this Valentine’s Day more engaging. Challenge your partners with an exciting treasure hunt. Create hints and a map where they can find the gift. The treasure could be anything from a box of chocolates to a dozen roses or a spa treat coupon.
Valentine’s Day tends to be dominated by women, so why not let your man enjoy the day too? Spending the day together can be more fun and exciting. If your man enjoys gaming, surprise him with a game challenge.
There are plenty of exciting PlayStation games to play together, whether you’re cooperating or competing. Even if you’re not skilled at the game, learn the basics and try to have fun. If you’re wondering where to take him for the challenge, there’s a legit game station at UK Mall in Kabagala.
Recreate Your First Valentine’s Day Together
For those in long-term relationships, recreating your first Valentine’s date can be a delightful surprise for your partner.
How about visiting an adventurous park with your loved one? Loosen up a bit, enjoy rides like the merry-go-round, try activities like zip-lining, and paintball, or go for a pedal boat ride. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s fun and memorable. You can even opt for horse riding. The key is to make the day unforgettable.
