Fun Valentine Surprises you both can get excited about!

The month of LOVE has arrived and Cupid is on the move! Have you been struck by the arrow of love?  Need some ideas to celebrate with your sweetheart?  Check out these fun activities to keep the spark ignited all month long!

Splurge on a movie and dessert night! Find a movie you both will enjoy.  It doesn’t have to be romantic.  Grab a comedy for a night of laughs.  After all, a couple that laughs together stays together.  Then, create a dessert bar on the coffee table with cookies, ice cream…the works!  (No counting calories tonight!) Sit back, laugh, eat, and enjoy your special time together.

Create a day of surprises.  Purchase a few roses and your Valentine’s favorite candy. Place them in places you know he/she visits throughout the day, perhaps in a desk drawer, in the car, or in their briefcase.  You’ll bring smiles to your loved one’s face all day long

Do a little wine tasting. Head to the nearest winery and sample wines together.  You don’t need to be an expert to appreciate a fine glass of wine.  Pick the wine you both like the most and buy a bottle to take home.  You can look forward to sharing it together one romantic night in the near future.

Go horseback riding. What a fun way to spend time with your sweetie!  Riding horses brings out the kid in all of us!!  Are you near a beach?  Check local websites for horseback riding on the beach.  This is an adventure you can take advantage of any day of the week!

Watch the sun set. Choose any afternoon, grab a blanket, a bottle of wine and cheese, and lay back while nature does its thing.  You can even prolong your date with a romantic evening under the stars. Don’t forget the camera.  You’ll definitely want pictures of this!!

Schedule sometime at the spa for some rejuvenation. Indulge in a couple’s massage followed by a mani/pedi. Your spa team will make the arrangements so you and your significant other can experience a tranquil day together and leave all your worries behind. For that extra special touch, purchase a spa gift card for your sweetie so they can stop in and relax by themselves one day after work.

Most importantly, don’t get stuck showing your special someone how much you love them on Valentine’s Day only.  Express your love all month long.
