Valentine’s Day is often synonyms for fancy chocolates and overpriced, cheesy gifts and cards. This year, kick your celebration up a notch for your special someone with these Valentine’s Day ideas…

1.Create a Spa Day at Home

Just because we’re spending more time at home, doesn’t mean we can’t pamper ourselves!

A spa day at home can be as simple as popping on a hydrating face mask or investing in a muscle-soothing soak to ease tightness from sitting at your makeshift desk (read: couch) all day. Kick it up a notch by giving each other massages, enjoying some bubbly, and testing your polish precision with manicures and pedicures!

2. Prepare a Romantic Dinner

Nothing says “I love you” like taking the initiative to cook a special meal all on your own for your partner. Prepare something decadent that the two of you love, and dress up as if you’re going out. Take it even further by using the “good” china and cutlery, and put out some candles for a little extra ambiance!

3. Take a Virtual Class Together

Learning a new skill or hobby together can be a fun way to reconnect and have share some laughs. If you or your significant other is crafty, take a virtual painting class. You could even combine the spa day experience with learning something new together by heading to YouTube to learn how to give a massage.

Additionally, Healthy Altitudes also often holds virtual cooking classes. Follow us on Facebook for the latest updates on what’s on our calendar next, or shoot us an email to request another class!

4. Make a Photo Album

A photo book makes a great Valentine’s Day gift. But putting one together also makes a great Valentine’s Day activity. Grab your significant other and compile all your favorite photos. You’ll have so much fun reminiscing on your favorite memories.

If creating an album with your hands isn’t your style, try an online service such as Shutterfly. You can digitally create an album with premade layouts and simple photo editing software. Then, once you like what you’ve made, put your payment through and your album will be shipped right to your doorstep!
