2. Open Air Movie Night

Nothing quite beats the feeling of watching a romantic movie under the stars. Impress your loved one this Valentine’s Day, by setting up your very own backyard cinema, complete with cushions, blankets, fairy lights and nibbles.

3. Glamping

Want to book a weekend away without the price tag of a luxury hotel? It’s about time you tried glamping! Think of it as the Beyoncé of camping—less of the roughing it, and more of the fun. Pack your favourite home luxuries, head off into the wilderness and spend the weekend relaxing in each other’s company.

4. Spa Retreat

Send your valentine into a deep state of relaxation at a premium spa retreat. Spend the day relaxing by each other’s side, unwinding in the spa or enjoying a couple’s massage—whatever the case, they’re bound to feel the love this Valentine’s Day.

5. Homemade Fondue

If your valentine is one for the sweeter side of life, surprise them with a homemade chocolate fondue. Simply melt some rich, quality chocolate, pick up some fresh fruit and voilà—fondue is served! If your partner isn’t a fan of fruit, mix it up and get creative with other dipping options including banana bread, cake cubes and marshmallows!

6. Work Surprise

Does your loved one have to work this Valentine’s Day? Show them you care by sending a surprise to their work. Whether you ask their favourite café to deliver their go-to coffee and treat, or place an online order for a beautiful bunch of flowers, you’re bound to put a smile on their face.

7. Champagne Breakfast

Wake your partner to a surprise champagne breakfast at home. Play some of their favourite songs as you serve up a tasty range of breakfast options—alongside a glass of bubbling champagne. The perfect Valentine’s Day morning!

8. City Escape

Do you both love the city but never have enough time to explore it? Spend this Valentine’s Day seeing the sights, visiting museums and enjoying a relaxing lunch in each other’s company.

9. Recreate Your First Date

Do you have fond memories of your first date? Perhaps you visited somewhere you both haven’t been for a while? Recreating your first date is great way to enjoy each other’s company, as well as celebrating your relationship.

10. Adventure Day

Nothing shouts love more than an adventurous day surrounded by nature. Wake up early, pack up a day’s worth of supplies and head off to enjoy an action-packed day of your favourite sport, whether it be walking, swimming, cycling or kayaking.

11. Candlelit Dinner

Whether you choose to dine out with a fine view, or spoil your lover to a romantic homemade meal in the comfort of your own home, one thing is for sure—a candlelit dinner never fails to impress.

12. Make a Donation

Completely lost on what to give your partner this Valentine’s Day? Instead of purchasing an unwanted present, why not give a donation to their favourite charity or cause? Most charities have an option for you to donate on behalf of someone else!

13. Sunrise stroll

Whether you live on the coast, in the hinterland or within the city, wake up and rise up to watch the sun brighten the sky this Valentine’s Day. Why not make the morning extra special by heading to your favourite café afterwards?
