You know they say love makes people do crazy things and isn’t it great that we have a day to live that craziness? Look, I’m a hopeless romantic, and I think it’s wonderful that Valentine’s Day allows people to express their love for each other. Of course, you can do that on any other day as well but now that it’s on the calendar, why shy away from it.
Lately, it’s become a bit of a cult to reject Valentine’s Day. People often feel pressured to celebrate in fear of looking too corny. But you know something, there’s so much hatred in the world these days that we should embrace every opportunity we get to celebrate love, compassion, and romance.
There are so many creative ways to express yourselves and make your partner happy. You can take the easiest things and put a twist on it. This Valentine’s, why not gift your loved one a memorable experience that creates happiness rather than simply handing over stuff. Buying a generic bouquet of flowers that she’ll keep beside her bed for way too long because she feels bad throwing them away, or a giant teddy bear holding a heart that you found at a corner store are ideas that have been overdone and completely exhausted.
Majority population would much rather have wholesome experiences than the regular gifting stuff that they receive anyway on birthdays and other festive occasions. Valentine’s Day is your chance to keep the romance alive in your relationship.
If you’re stumped and wondering where to start, read on to know a few ways on how to create memories and not pile up more stuff!

You cannot go wrong with spas!! Booking a massage for yourselves will give you both enough time to relax and reflect in private. Sharing a massage room is a lot more powerful than you can imagine. Couples feed on each others’ positive vibes and carry it even outside of the room. A great benefit of spas is that you’re fully engaged in the activity and completely mindful of the present which will help you both connect with very little effort. Valentine’s Day is the perfect reason to create this shared time with your loved one.
Plan a scavenger hunt and have a killer time! The adrenaline rush, the photos, the competition, the videos, the clues- it is undoubtedly one of the best ways to bring people closer and have a great time. On Valentine’s Day, you can plan a hunt around all the memories that you two have shared together- the places you visit often, the things you both like to do, favourite restaurants maybe, or where you first met.
PS: I hope you haven’t already forgotten where you two met. 😛
