Whether you want to romance a new love interest, or are in seek of a creative way to celebrate the upcoming holiday, our Valentines Day tradition is always simple: date night. Date night can take many forms, and regardless of whether it’s a date night in or a date night out, we are always thinking of new things to do together.
Are you wanting to add a spin to your typical Valentine’s Day routine? Here’s our list of 6 Valentine’s Day date ideas that can take form right from the comfort of your own home.
1.) Book a reservation at your kitchen table.
While cooking together might be something you do every day, there’s no reason it can’t be extra special. Devise a unique dish that neither of you’ve made before. We recently tried this balsamic glazed chicken recipe and it turned out great!
2.) Plan a spa activity.
Like the spa date idea, but don’t want to spend a ton? Purchase a couple of inexpensive cozy robes like this Ultimate robe by American Essentials and this Flutter robe by Pretty Plum Sugar, and apply a face mask (our favorite is the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask) for ultra-relaxation. The fact that it really does wonders for your skin is an added bonus!
3.) Have a wine or champagne tasting in the bubble bath. The more bubbles, the better!
4.) Dare to go bare?
Try out a new beauty treatment together. For the last few weeks, we’ve been doing laser-hair removal treatments at home using the Iluminage touch (review coming soon!)
5.) Take a road trip.
Regardless of where you live, chances are there are places neither of you have explored before. On our way back from the K3 Ranch (see our posts from the ranch here, here, here, here, and here) we stopped at the Garven’s store, a super campy gas station and shop that provided the perfect setting for photos.
6.) Read a book.
Find a genre you both enjoy and spend time reading together. Lately, we’ve been enjoying reading books about developing one’s psychic intuition. If you’re interested in learning more, our favorites as of late can be found here and here.
7.) Channel your inner zen.
Meditation is a great way to release built-up stress and connect with one another on a higher frequency. Thanks to Josh’s mom Ellen who’s private practice, The Stress & Happiness Center of Dallas depends on the newest technology in brain training and biofeedback, we’ve had the pleasure of trying out all kinds of new meditation tools. Our favorites are Imadulation’s Guided Imagery mp3s, the BAUD device, VieLight Intranasal Light Therapy, and Muse: The Brain Sensing Headband.
