And with these date ideas I have here we can spend loving, quality time together and save money.
A Hike & Hot CocoaIt's cold here, hello February in Ohio! So throw on some extra layers and bundle up. Fill a thermos or a couple of travel mugs with some hot hot chocolate. Then find a park to explore. Take a walk along a path, enjoy some fresh air and beautiful natural sites. When you find a spot to relax and enjoy a view stop and enjoy the hot chocolate. Trees and meadows covered in snow can be very peaceful. Once you are done with your hike warm each other back up with some cuddling.
Find a Free ShowLook for annoucements from local colleges or schools, many of them will have free or very low cost concerts, plays, and art galleries. You can also check out muesems and theaters near you to see if they have any free exhibits or performances.
Game NightWho said you had to leave home for a date night? Stay inside and play a few card games or board games together! Rummy, hearts, kings in a corner, poker, they only require a set of standard playing cards and two people who want to play. This can lead to lots of fun, a little friendly competition, and many laughs.
Create a Dessert TogetherCake, brownies, cookies, ice cream sundaes, all so sweet and yummy. Have fun and have your loved one help you. It may get a little more messy but that's part of the fun! If you don't have much in your cupboards look at trying to make snickerdoodles, butter, flour, eggs, sugar, and cinnamon are about all you need and you may already have all these ingredients. Once your dessert is complete you can enjoy tasting it and feeding it to each other.
Pamper Each OtherDoes your love really enjoy a back massage? Do you like to relax with a good foot massage? Find out what your loved one likes to have done to feel good and relax. It can be a massage, nail painting, hair styling, hot bath, back scratch, whatever makes you feel pampered. Take turns giving each other a pampering session, or spend some time together relaxing to slow music and low lights.
What ever you decide to do for Valentine's Day I hope you get to spend some quality time with your love. Even if it only happens after the kids are in bed! I feel quality time with your love is imporant in any relationship.
