Valentine’s Day can be a stressful time. Will they like what I get them? Will I like what they get me? Should we do the traditional romantic dinner out or should I think of something unusual and more memorable? Do I buy flowers and/or candy? If you’re not married yet, you may be wondering if Valentine’s Day is a good time to pop the question. Yes, there can be a lot to stress about.
Sometimes the antidote to stressing is to keep it simple. Valentine’s Day is just a day to appreciate and show love to another. It doesn’t have to be complicated. It doesn’t have to be expensive. You don’t have to keep up with anyone else’s standard. Just show love. There are millions of ways to do that.
It doesn’t even have to be celebrated on the specific date, especially if Valentine’s Day is on a weekday. Give each other the gift of celebrating either the weekend before or after, if it is more convenient for both of you. There’s nothing magical about the date of February 14th. Any evening where you get to spend time together can be wonderful. Take the pressure off that day. There are 364 more days that can be used to show love to someone.
Here are 10 Valentine’s Day (or other day), date ideas that you will both love:
