Happy Valentine's Day my loves.
Here are 10 ideas for the most amazing day from Your Valentine’s Day Coach!
1 - Take a class together.
There are classes in everything from cooking to sewing. Learning something new together is a bonding experience.
2 - “50 Shades” of Valentine’s Day.
You may or may not want to go all out. For the adventurous, check out a woman friendly adult shop together like Babeland or Good Vibrations. You can also shop online. If that’s too daring or not your style, go lingerie shopping together at La Perla or Victoria’s Secret, depending on your budget. The at home fashion show afterward will be fun.
You can also read each other erotica tales. Any book edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel is a great place to start.
3 - Serve breakfast in bed.
Who ever hates being catered to? Remind the love of your life that he or she is actually loved. Show that it’s a special day by including cake and ice cream for breakfast. That will stand out!
4 - Get your heart’s racing.
Experiencing a real live adventure together helps your body to release feel-good endorphins. Adrenaline rushers like a roller coaster ride, sky diving or a hot air balloon all count. Even watching a scary movie together will unite you in your fear. Extra points if the experience makes you hold on to each other for dear life. Then you’ve got the love hormone oxytocin on your side as well.
5 - Yuck it up.
Head to a comedy club or pop in a funny movie. Life can be a challenge and so can relationships. Laughing together is super-important to blow off steam and release pressure.
6 - Try a Home Vacay.
Where have you always wanted to visit? Perhaps you can create Singapore in your living room with food and props. Extra points for dressing the part. If you can’t make it to Italy, visit a few spots in the Italian area of your city for a fun and unique local experience.
7 - VDay is great to renew your intentions.
What are your love intentions for the relationship and each other? Pledge your love goals before family and friends or just you two. This can be a surprise vow renewal for married folks or just a declaration of love for those who are coupled. Valentine’s Day is also a great time for engagements.
8 - Do you have a relationship contract?
Actually you do whether it’s on paper or not. No, Love Contract Time is not hokey. Spending time together to talk about what is acceptable in your love life and what isn’t is a powerful way to be vulnerable and intimate while expressing your needs with each other.
9 - Help your partner relax.
Spa Day works at home or on location. “No, please don’t pamper me,” said no one ever. Show your partner you care with hands-on massages, bubble baths and extreme personal care.
10 - Stand up together for a cause you believe in.
Eve Ensler’s VDay organization is springing into positive Valentine’s Day action with their One Billion Rising Movement. Check their site to see how you can stand up for stopping violence against women and girls in your city.
