Couples that work out together, stay together!
While Valentines Day may be a bit different this year, it doesn’t mean you can’t make it romantic for your significant other, and maybe you can even burn some calories together too! ?
There’s no better way to express your love for each other than to spend some quality time together. And being that this is your very special day, changing things up can really strengthen your bond.
So without further ado, here are some fantastic ideas for healthy and romantic things to do with your special lady or guy this Valentines Day.
Oh, and by the way, Happy Valentines day! ?
Go on a Hike
If you live near a trail or national park, a hike is a great way to get away for a little while, burn some calories, and connect with each other to reflect on the past year and the coming years ahead. Not only is it a great way to get outdoors, but it is also great to eliminate the distractions of everyday life and allow you to focus on each other.
If you and your partner enjoy helping others, you can spread that Valentines Day love by volunteering together. There are many healthy activities you can participate in to feed both your mind and body. Find a soup kitchen, animal shelter, or just pick up trash around town. This is a great way to spend time together AND you get to help your community. What’s better than that?
Get Tickets to a Virtual Show
Although Covid-19 has eliminated the possibility of going out to a show, you and your partner can get comfy on the couch and watch a virtual show. You can see a great performance while sitting in your pajamas and eating your favorite snacks!
Make a Relationship Scrapbook
If you and your partner are sentimental, create a scrapbook of your relationship together! You can include pictures, map printouts, ticket stubs, recipes, or anything else. You can make a beautiful treasure book that you can even pass down.
Bake Something Yummy
Baking is a great way to spend quality time with your boo. You can create a myriad of different things depending on your skill level. There’s nothing sweeter than sharing sweets! But try vegan cookies for a yummy but healthier option. The choice is up to you. Have fun and be creative together.
Go For a Drive
Is there a town nearby you’ve been wanting to visit? Blast some tunes and go for a drive! You can spend time together and get out of your comfort zone while exploring the world. Who knows what you will come across? List next to the ocean? Take a drive along the coast and go for a romantic walk on the beach.
Have a Movie Marathon
Whether you like murder mysteries or cheesy rom-coms, a movie marathon is a great way to get some R and R while enjoying some quality time together. You can enhance this experience by making some popcorn and other favorite snacks!
Send Your Lover On a Treasure Hunt
Treasure hunts aren’t just for kids! If you have a gift you want to give your partner, but don’t want to just give it to them (boring!), consider setting up a treasure hunt. Come up with clues and have them go around the house, or even the neighborhood to look for clues to find their gift.
Have a Game Night
Explore your competitive spirit with a game night. Of course, you can add snacks and wine to enhance the experience.
If you feel safe and comfortable going out, check out that fancy restaurant you’ve been wanting to try. Now is the time to treat yourself if you have the means to do so.
Have a Wine and Craft Night
There’s nothing like turning on your creative side. Set up a craft night for you and your SO and have some fun while making something super fun, cool, or useful! You never know, you could find your new favorite hobby! Add some snacks and wine for that extra fun date night feel.
Get to Know Each Other Over Drinks
If you’re a new couple, this is especially fun. You can do this out at a restaurant or at your home if that makes you more comfortable. Grab a drink (preferably a healthy one!) of your choice and answer these 36 Deep Questions.
