With February 14th just days away, couples are getting ready to celebrate the most romantic day of the year. Not sure of the best way to tell your significant other, “I love you?” Try these easy Valentine ideas to celebrate your partner.
1. Cook a Meal Together
If you haven’t made dinner plans for the 14th already, you’ll be hard pressed to get a dinner reservation at this point. Thankfully, cooking dinner with your partner is just as romantic as going out to eat. Whether you try a simple meal like pasta and wine or you both challenge yourselves to go all out with a five course meal, spending time together in the kitchen is a great way to reconnect as you celebrate your love.
2. Surprise Your Partner with Flowers
Flowers may seem old-school, but they’re one tradition that will never go out of style. While you don’t have to wait until the 14th to surprise your partner with a bouquet of their favorite flowers, this surprise is an extra special way to share your love during the holiday. If you don’t have a chance to pick up flowers from your local florist or the grocery store, have them delivered.

3. Watch a Romantic Movie
Romantic movies are another option for couples searching for a way to celebrate this Valentine’s Day. Streaming service favorites like Netflix and Hulu have an incredible selection for couples planning to spend the 14th at home with dinner and a movie. Interested in hitting the town? Consider booking tickets with a movie theater that serves dinner and drinks during the film for a creative take on this time-honored date night.

4. Relax Together with Yoga
Don’t let the rush to wow your partner stress you out. This Valentine’s Day, try celebrating by doing yoga together. Whether you’re a committed yogi or you’ve never practiced yoga before, trying a yoga class with your loved one is a relaxing way to spend this romantic holiday together. Search for local yoga studios in your area to find a class that best suits your schedule. Though some studios do offer couples’ yoga, traditional classes are an equally enjoyable way to spend time with your partner as well.
Take things to the next level on your yoga date with hot yoga. A hot yoga session is just as relaxing as traditional yoga and an intense way to bond with your significant other.
5. Explore Outdoors
Exploring the outdoors with your partner is another great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. If it’s warmer where you live and near to the ocean, lake or river, consider taking an evening walk along the beach, kayaking at sunset, or going for a drive to look at the stars. If you’re celebrating in a colder climate, try spending quality time around a bonfire, taking a walk through a snow-covered park, or getting up early to watch the sunrise. Spending time in nature is the perfect way to reconnect with each other this Valentine’s Day.
Don’t feel pressured to go overboard this Valentine’s Day. Remember that spending quality time with your partner is more valuable than any physical gift. As you finalize your plans for February 14th, let this list of Valentine ideas inspire you to find new ways to show your partner you love them.
