Seven Unique Activities For Couples This Valentine’s Day
Forget teddy-bears and supermarket flowers this Valentine’s, with lockdown restrictions still in place, the most romantic day of the year is set to look a little different this time, with couples more likely to be facing an evening of tracksuits and TV rather than fancy dates. However, the Nation is now set for a romance revival, as leading TV Psychologist Honey Langcaster-James has teamed up with The LEGO Group to reveal seven surprising activities which couples can do to strengthen their relationships.
Couples Who Build Together – Stay Together!
Get in touch with your playful, creative side & spend some quality time with your partner. If you choose an activity that requires focus and cooperation, like building a LEGO set together!
Master the Art of Eye-Gazing
Try doing something together that makes you focus on looking lovingly into your partner’s eyes – like sitting opposite each other and drawing a portrait, or perhaps doing your partner’s hair or makeup.
Spend a Day in Each Other’s Shoes – Literally!
Empathy has been shown to foster altruism and cooperation, so why not have a little bit of fun by swapping roles with each other for the day.
Take a Culinary Trip Down Memory Lane
A romantic dinner is a classic way to spend Valentine’s, but after months staying at home, you may be itching for some novelty. So why not take your taste buds on a little trip down memory lane. Think of past holidays you’ve shared together, or special locations, and then create a menu that helps transport you back there.
Create a Couple’s Cocktail
Just like a great relationship, it takes a bit of chemistry to create a great cocktail. Why not express your affection to your partner by representing your relationship and mixing a unique cocktail which you can name after the two of you? You could choose a few funky ingredients to represent your individual personalities and best attributes.
Let’s Get Physical
Exercise produces endorphins and improves your mood, so doing something physical together can increase positive feelings in general. If you try something new together, such as rollerblading in the local park, you’ll need to rely on supporting one another and engage in team work.
Let Music Be the Food of Love
Listening to music together can be even more romantic if you pick tracks that are meaningful to past moments you’ve shared. Try curating a Valentine’s playlist together by picking songs that represent a special time in your relationship.
