Valentines Day is only a month away! Plenty of people complain about Valentines Day for being “a holiday made up by greeting card companies” or “just a day to make single people feel bad about themselves”. Whether or not those things are true, we believe that Valentines Day is what you make it! There are lots of great ideas out there for making the most of Valentines Day! Here are a few of our favourites:
The Classic Date Night
They stay if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. That is why we love the classic Valentines Day date. Start with a romantic candle-lit dinner, take a stroll through a park or take in a movie and finish the night snuggled up to your sweetie under the covers. What is great about the classic date is that you can customise it any way you like. If you’re a gifted gourmet chef you can impress your date with a 5-star meal without leaving the comfort of your own home! If you live in a city like Vancouver the options for incredible food and unique entertainment are virtually limitless.
Celebrating Valentines Day isn’t exclusive to couples. Take a page from the book of Parks and Recreation’s Leslie Knope and celebrate this Valentines Day with the ladies in your life. Find an activity, grab some snacks and pop a few bottles to celebrate friendship! Galentines day is a great way to show the women you love that they are important and to celebrate the value that those relationships bring to your life.
