Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and some couples may feel like the pressure is on. It’s really stressful having to shop for a better gift every year and sometimes when we are too caught up with work, we might forget altogether. So, instead of splashing out on expensive gifts this year, why don’t you get creative and do something different.

Here are our top 5 ideas to help you have fun on Valentine’s Day:

Go back in time – Remember your first date? No matter how long you have been together, you will never forget your first date. This Valentine’s Day, why not forego the expensive gifts and go back to basics. Recreate your first date and fall in love all over again! Just feel all the feels!

Get adventurous – Does he love getting on the ATV and exploring the jungle? Or maybe he prefers rock climbing and so do you. Why not do something adventurous and fun together on Valentine’s Day instead of the usual candlelight dinner. You know what they say – Couples that do things together, stays together.

Go for a beer – You two have been together for a very long time and even if you live under the same roof, sometimes your busy schedules may stop you from spending time with one another. This Valentine’s Day, why not head down to a chilled out pub, order a couple of beers and really just spend time with your partner. Simple and inexpensive too!

Get into a DIY project – Perhaps there is something that you two have been wanting to do in the house, like change the colour of your bedroom walls. Instead of forking out money on expensive gifts that you two probably don’t need, why not get involved with a DIY project. Create a terrarium or do some gardening. The list is endless!

Go for simple – Sometimes when you’ve been together for a long time, it’s the simple things that really matters. So, don’t bother making a reservation at a fancy restaurant. Cook up a feast at home, put on some awesome playlist on Spotify and have dinner together. Nothing says love like a home-cooked meal.
