It’s the time of year for cosy candlelight dinners and heart-shaped candy boxes, little gift boxes wrapped in red and romcom movies. But this year, instead of getting caught in the same pattern that comes with every Valentine’s Day, why not shake things up a bit and do something offbeat?
As days get busier than ever, probably the best thing to give your loved ones would be the gift of time. So, clear out your schedule and plan something exciting that will have you create fond memories to look back to, year after year.
Is there a class or an activity that you and your partner have been talking of signing up for, but never quite got around to doing? This could be a great time to get started. If there isn’t one such on your list, here are some ideas—a dancing class, a baking tutorial or a wine tasting session. Not only will the two of you spend some quality time together, you would also have picked up something new.
Wind up the day with some karaoke—you could serenade each other with some fun, cheesy playlist and see who fares better with the mic. Or get yourself tickets for a comedy night and enjoy a few laughs.
Looking to do something special with your besties? Plan a road trip that takes you away for a couple of days. It could be a drive to the nearest resort to just soak in the pool and order cocktails, or it could be drive through obscure towns and nameless hamlets. But with your closest friends around, it is guaranteed to be a memorable trip.
Want to do something for your parents to let them know how cherished they are? Book them in for a day of pampering at a spa. And to top off their day of relaxation, cook them a special meal. They will be glowing for reasons more than just the spa treatment!
And to round up this list, here’s an adventurous one. There must be something that your significant other likes, which you have never tried. Perhaps it’s roller skating. Or crafting. Or painting or music. Or watching old martial arts movies. Why not give it a try? Not only will it be a great way to bond, you might also end up developing a new hobby
