We don’t have anything against long stemmed roses, candle light dinners, or chocolates …
In fact we love all those things! But this year we suggest you spice things up and think outside the heart shaped chocolate box. As the years go by together you might find it harder and harder to find unique, fun and thoughtful ways to add some variation to your Valentine’s Day routine as a couple.
We’ve come up with 10 unconventional Valentine’s Day ideas that are sure to make a night worth remembering, and one that will set the standards for the rest of your romantic year ahead.
1. Print Photos Of You Two Together
Take a walk down memory lane together and relive all the captured moments that make up your love story. You can plaster them on your fridge, make a scrapbook together, or just sip wine and reminisce.
2. Mail a Love Letter to Your Significant Others’ Work
Who doesn’t love to be surprised? Flowers and Edible Arrangements might be expected, but receiving mail at work will be a completely shocking surprise. Receiving mail is always exciting, especially when it’s unexpected and from someone you love.
3. Fill Your Bedroom with Helium Balloons
Your local Dollar Store is sure to have a multitude of balloons that you can use to set the stage for the night. Add a little touch of sensual stimulation to your typical bedroom décor. You can even add rose petals and hang strands of lights if you really want to create a romantic staycation environment.
4. Send a Sweet Text on the Hour Every Hour
A text is a modern day love letter! Sending a text every hour on the hour on Valentine’s Day is the equivalent of standing outside a balcony proclaiming your love out loud. The texts can be simple and sweet, or saucy and alluring *wink wink
5. Car Chalk/Lipstick Bomb the Car
It’s the same idea as the “Just Got Married” car festivities, only for Valentine’s Day instead. You can put kisses all over the windows, or write sweet messages all over the car. All day long your sweetheart will be getting looks of admiration as they drive around town. It’s a Valentine’s Day card that’s goes wherever your honey does!
6. Have a Picnic on the Floor At Home
We know it’s cold outside, but who said a Picnic is limited to outside?
You can have a cozy little feast right on the floor of your home. You can even build a fort, or let “Living Landscapes” on Netflix play to make it feel like spring!
7. Have a Sexy Photoshoot
Technology has made it very easy for you to be a professional photographer, besides these photos are just for the two of you. They will serve as sexy reminders of how tantalizing your alone time together can be, not just on Valentine’s Day but all year!
8. Play Strip Poker
It’s game night with all the right incentives.
9. Send a Heart Shaped Pizza
It’s the perfect way to celebrate the one who has a “pizza” your heart. If you are good in the kitchen you can even bake your own pie of love. This is one Valentines heart shaped goodie that is cheesy in all the right ways!
10. Carve Your Initials Somewhere
Make your love permanent! If you aren’t up for the commitment of a tattoo then why not carve your initials into a tree on your property? You can also write them in marker somewhere in your home like a little corner on the ceiling or inside a cupboard door you use often. Each time you come home, look up, or open up the cupboard you will enjoy a heart smile that reminds you of your love together.
Valentine’s Day is perfect for creating a romantic standard of how you can expand on your romantic occasions together. Valentine’s Day is a mentality that doesn’t have to end after the 14th of February has come and gone. You and your love want to feel special and appreciated every day not just once a year, and with a little help from Gnoments and our Gnomes more days can be like Valentine’s Day.
Gnomes celebrate around 300 years of marriage so they know a thing or two about keeping things exciting and extending the Valentine’s Day mentality to last all year long. Love is worth celebrating more than just one day a year! Gnome matter how you choose to spend your time together, what really matters is that you do. Gnoments and our Gnomes are here to help you accomplish you relationship goals and keep the romance alive and active all year long.
Love is more fun with Gnoments!
