What To Do This Valentine’s Day To Make It The Most Special One Together?
Regardless of whether you’re a newlywed and would be having your first Valentine’s Day together, or a couple soon to be engaged, Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year.
But let’s face it. It can be hard to come up with ideas to make this day special, especially if you want to avoid all the beaten-to-death ideas and do something unique to make this day truly special and memorable for both you and your partner.
Well, you’re in luck! I’ve decided to come up with a detailed post on what you can do this Valentine’s that would make you cherish it for a long time to come.
Write Your Heart Out!
Nothing works as good as a written letter to express your feelings. Spoken words can only do so much justice to your feelings.
A written letter is also something your spouse wouldn’t really expect, so it would indeed turn out to be a real surprise for them. Furthermore, if you’re just having your first Valentine’s Day together after your marriage, an emotionally written love letter can quickly take you and your spouse back to the time you first met and your other special moments you do cherish somewhere deep inside.
And before you dismiss this idea thinking you’re not good at writing, let me tell you that you don’t have to be a writer to pull this off. A heart filled with love is enough. It’s all about just writing out your feelings for your partner.
Reliving Your Wedding Day
If you’re a newlywed, watching your wedding video is a good way to relive the special day of your life. It would help strengthen your wedding bond, as well as spend some quality time together.
It would also turn out to be more fun than you may think, as there will be many moments in the video that will make you laugh and smile. The same goes for your wedding photo album. If you had a good wedding photographer on your special day, you will definitely enjoy going through your wedding photo album.
It can also be a good alternative to expensive dine-outs or spending big on your Valentine’s Day, especially if your wallet is still feeling the heat of your big day’s big expenses.
And if you’re not yet engaged or planning a proposal on Valentine’s Day (which is a very cute and most romantic way to pop the question), consider hiring a good photographer where he/she can truly capture that special moment in the most romantic day! Your timeless photos that you will cherish for a lifetime!
As wild as it might sound, there are few things that can get more romantic than going camping on a Valentine’s Day. This is especially true if you choose a spot that’s away from the hustle and bustle of city life, and lets you and your partner spend time together without any distractions.
Sitting inside a camping tent and talking about your special moments together would turn out to be a unique experience in itself. It would also be a welcome break from your typical shopping, dining and movie trips.
Just Get Into a Different Environment
Even if the camping idea doesn’t appeal to you, just consider getting out of your usual surroundings and going somewhere that offers a different environment. It doesn’t have to be a long trip either. Even the hotel just half an hour away from your home can do the trick.
It not only allows you to get away from all the day-to-day distractions, but simply getting into a new environment together can be exciting and allow you and your partner to open up better to each other.
Know Your Partner’s Expectations Beforehand
While planning surprises and trying out new ideas can be great, it may not always work out the way you expect. Sometimes, all you need to do is discuss the expectations beforehand.
This would allow planning a Valentine’s Day celebration that doesn’t turn out to be “too much” for your partner, or even disappointing for your partner.
Every person is different. While someone enjoys a big celebration, some other may be of an opinion to have a more modest but unique celebration. It can be difficult to choose between something like a weekend gate-away or just a long drive if you don’t understand your partner’s expectations well.
Discussing your partner’s expectations on your first Valentine’s Day after your marriage is particularly a good idea as it may help you understand your partner’s expectations for future events as well that have a special place on your calendar.
Do Not Go by the Hype
In addition to what we mentioned above, it’s also important to not let the Valentine’s Day hype influence your decision about how you should celebrate it. Just because everyone else you see is exchanging expensive gifts doesn’t mean you have to do the same.
In fact, doing what everyone else is doing can make it hard for your celebration to feel natural and unique, something that’s important to make your day special. That said, doing something as simple as volunteering for a cause that’s close to your and your partner’s heart can make the day more special than just an expensive dine-out or going on a movie.
Photoshoot Marking Your First Valentine’s Day Together!
Photos are special. There’s no denying that. And they appeal to almost everyone, so you don’t even need to think a lot about whether or not it would work out for you.
A simple photoshoot marking your first Valentine’s Day together after marriage is sure to make you both feel special. It will also help build memories together that you will cherish for a lifetime alongside your wedding day.

Give a “Low-Risk” Gift
If you and your partner haven’t spent enough Valentine’s Days together, it’s easy to mess up with your gift idea. However, a fairly fail-proof way here is to give a simple gift.
It would not only prevent things from getting awkward even if you don’t get it right, but it will also be a bit of a test for you to find out how well you understand your partner.
Candies and flowers, or even a heart-related piece of jewelry, is hard to go wrong with. However, if you want to really stand out, go for a handwritten poem, drawing or a photo album. It would be unique enough and make your partner feel that you indeed put some effort into it and they will be more likely to truly appreciate it.
