How to Have the Best Valentine’s Day Ever
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, married couples and singles alike are busy planning how they will spend the most romantic night of the year. Studies have shown that 50% of Americans celebrate Valentine’s Day, regardless of their relationship status. Whether you’ve been married for a while and are looking to spice up your love life or you are wondering if he is going to pop the question on February 14, here some ideas on how to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember.
Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
While a romantic candlelit dinner is a time-honored tradition on Valentine’s Day, often times it can be a bit archaic. If you share many meals with your honey, then a nice meal in a restaurant might feel like less of a treat and more of a chore. Try cooking something new together instead. There are many resources online for cuisines that you might not have heard of, and the discovery of new ingredients will keep you both thinking about spicing things up long after the dishes are cleared.
Try Something New in Bed
There is a plethora of articles on the internet with tips and tricks on keeping your sex life interesting. Often including items such as roleplaying, bondage, and strawberries. But often just a simple change in routine can make things more exciting. Instead of sneaking off to bed at the end of the night, engage your partner in the morning, just after breakfast. A change in scenery and routine will allow you to make fun new memories. If you still need some help, ask to watch while they engage with a toy. Just being watched can be enough to get their blood flowing.
Go Big or Go… Home
More often than not, making time to simply enjoy each other and their company is enough to make a perfect evening. Cleaning up the house before they get home from work is a sure fire way to impress them. Then, rent a silly movie and snuggle up on the couch, giving each other the space to laugh and make jokes. Spending quality time together is the best way to show your partner that you care. Try out a new board game, or read to each other from your favorite books. Building trust through intimacy will allow you to cherish each other and the ways that you better each other’s lives.
