10 Best Non-Traditional Valentine’s Day Ideas
Tired of the chocolates and flowers? Are you totally over stuffed animals? You need to think outside the box this Valentine's Day. Here are some ideas:
It won't be gone in a week or make you fat and everyone needs a robe!
Get a packet of sticky notes and write something lovey dovey on 365 of them. Put them in a jar and label it "smile a day."
Draw a game board like "snakes and ladders" or "Candyland" with a pair of fuzzy dice. Write fun bed-time "activities" in the squares and do them when your game piece lands on the square.
Word to the wise, buy one WITHOUT graphic pictures in case the kids find it.
Leave little gifts like flowers, chocolates, jewelry in scenic places around town and go find them together.
Many websites will help you convert coins into rings. Find one with the year of their birth, or your anniversary, or a coin from the country of their origin, or where they studied abroad (maybe Japan if they're into sushi or anime).
Spice up your relationship with a little bit of frisky, immature fun. Buy $7 nerf guns and surprise them with a challenge. Have a reward they'll really like at the end to give them motivation (if they're the stuck up type).
If the weather is good, rent a tandem bike. It will be tough to learn at first, but then you'll really enjoy the "togetherness" of it. If the weather is bad, rent a gator off road vehicle. If you're not "out-doorsy" rent a really fun automobile and go for a drive.
Sometimes all you need to spice up your love life is a change of scenery.
If it's warm enough, do it outside, otherwise your living room will work fine. Get a romantic movie (if there's none out now go with a classic, but don't risk a lame one) and project it on your wall. Lay in the fun kiddie-pool bed and enjoy.
