4. TURN. OFF. THE. PHONE.
Hide your phones from each other and have a CONVERSATION!!! In order to have a successful date, turn off your phone! Leave it at home, unplugged, uncharged, the battery out== – whatever it takes to get rid of it, make sure you do it!!!
5. Shop for a house plant together
We live in a world where we spend so much time inside! Why not brighten up a room in a house by investing in some house plants to keep you company when your loved one is away?
6. Go stargazing at night
When was the last time you looked “UP” ? Yes, it is time to think POSITIVE, but also look up at the stars. It makes you feel a bit small, but it is an absolutely mesmerizing experience to take a walk at night and glance through a telescope!
7. Make an Upcycled Craft
There are TONS of do-it-yourself craft ideas out there. Hop on Pinterest and find one you both agree on. You can recycle old materials and make it into something new! For example, take old t-shirts and make a rug ! Commit to taking some time out of your Valentine’s Day to make it.
8. Plan a breakfast-in-bed meal
Plan appetizers, soup, salad, a main, dessert and then spend the day chatting, stirring, sauteing, and drinking wine.
