Since a lot of people are fuzzing on about Valentines Day, I decided not to let it get by totally unnoticed on my blog. That´s why I decided to dig up an old post and pimp it up a bit with photos. This is a very old one, from the 9th of February 2015. Well a year, okay….
Anyways, it was really fun rereading it. I used so many exclamation marks…and I was such a hopeless romantic then. Don´t get me wrong, I still am, but not as much anymore. Valentines Day for me this year will be grabbing a coffee with somebody, watching a Movie and pampering myself…What are your plans?
Note: I did get rid of some exclamation points and changed up the text a little bit. If you want to read original post and see what I wrote like a year back, then go ahead and do that;-)
So Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I know that most of my friends have no ideas what to do! That’s why I came up with a few fun ideas and activities to do on that special day! It doesn’t matter whether you have a Valentine this year or you don’t! A Girls or Guys day can be just as fun and these ideas work for any circumstance (maybe you guys have to add drink wine/beer and play on the Playstation…)! Have fun!
- Go to the cinema
This is a classic- it’s very fun and afterwards you definitely have something to talk about- maybe while you’re having a coffee, or taking a walk down-town…
- Have a Pick-Nick indoors/outdoors
-with a nice blanket and fruit and orange juice. Invite your friends over and have everyone bring something- a cake, fruit- whatever. Or have a pick nick with your valentine with flower deco… It maybe also really fun to do it inside and look at the blizzard outside, if you don’t happen to live in a warm place. If you do- go outside!
- Have coffee
Go to Starbucks or in a nice café! I prefer the nice cafés, just because they are much cuter than Starbucks and they need to survive, too… And no one said you need anyone to enjoy a nice warm cup of coffee…
- Take a long walk
-through the winter wonderland! If you don’t have any snow- no worries having a walk is always really fun with friends and can be so romantic with your boyfriend! It´s a great opportunity to catch up and just talk without pressure or distractions.
- Have a movie night at home
-with homemade snacks and fun movies – it’s sure to be a huge blast! I recommend the movie “Valentines Day” – that´s what I´m watching this year. If you have any other recommendations, be sure to leave them in the comments down below.
- Go iceskating
– it’s mostly an outdoor activity and it’s sooo much fun! Maybe you can warm up afterwards with some hot chocolate!
- Cook a fancy dinner together
– Borrow cooking books at the library or check out cooking blogs online and get in the kitchen! Set the table nicely with beautiful decors and candles.This maybe an idea for a girls night! I don’t know a lot of men who are really into cooking, but maybe he’ll do it with and for you!
- A perfect Girls Day
Shopping, spa, and dinner with a lot of movies!!!! No more to say here….
ohh and don´t forget the balloons…
- Also a classic: Eat in a restaurant! This is so much fun but also more pricy than any of the other ideas! But if you´re feeling like it, go for it!
- Go to the theater!
I personnally love the theater! No kidding- you can dress up and see a nice play- live! It’s also a bit more pricy than the cinema but the atmosphere is just so different! And if you’re feeling “Oh-so-fancy” go to a restaurant afterwards! Or just have a casual tea at a casual café…
- Do sports together
(and cook afterwards) You can just go jogging, or get the computer out and do workouts on YouTube… Borrow books from the library and try out new sports- maybe yoga!?! Get inspired and go sweat! It is healthy and not only your body will thank you!!
- Get creative- do DIYs! There are so many things you can do! Go through Pinterest, Youtube, Blogs and get creative!
- Look through old photos
Get out your old photo books- scroll through your old selfies- ask your parents for baby photos and have fun creating a memory by bringing up old ones!!!
- Make music together
If you play an instrument or if you like to sing, get together and make some noise!
- Play board or card games
You can have so much fun doing this! Sometimes you have a really interesting conversation , while playing games or give each other tips or just play without mercy!
- Bake together
and have a nice tea while eating your creations.
- Go dancing
-to a real ball or just at home- it doesn’t matter, as long as your moving and having fun, it’s all good!
- Do the Boyfriend/Girlfriend/Best friend Tag
Questions en masse on the internet. I personally find them rather entertaining to watch and you get to know each other a little better!
- Do “Would you rather…” Quizzes
– also a really fun way to get to know each other’s craziest preferences!! 😉
- Draw a picture for/of eachother
no matter which technique, get creative and you’ll have something to remember this day forever! (and ever….;-) I´ll leave this, just because I love how much I was into Valentines Day and now see how much has changed in this year…..)
I hope you found this helpful and please let me know what you did on this day or if it´s just like any other day for you!
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
