All of your ‘firsts’ after getting married become that much more special. Your first Christmas together. The first vacation you take. All of these moments are yours to create new traditions. Valentine’s Day is this week and we have a few suggestions on how to make this ‘first’ extra special.
Hire a Private Chef: Most newlyweds get married and buy a home all in the same year. Spend this February 14th cuddled up in your abode with a private chef creating dinner for two in your own kitchen.
Go Out: Make a reservation at the restaurant where the two of you had your first date. Bonus points if you can get the same table you sat at when you first laid eyes on one another.
Reminisce: Head back to the place where the proposal happened. Sip bubbly while you laugh about how nervous and jittery the whole thing was.
Be Adventurous: Make a new tradition of trying something new every Valentine’s Day. Try a new restaurant, go hiking or take off on a last minute trip. You can take this suggestion to the extreme or stay within the city limits.
Get a Room: Lots of hotels have Romance packages around the 14th. Snag a spot in the one that has the best view. Slip into a housecoat, order room service and hang the ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on the door.
Get a Clue: Create a scavenger hunt for your better half to go on. Leave clues at all the places in your town that mean something to your relationship (the flower shop that they send you bouquets from, the ice cream place you need to stop at every weekend in the summer, etc.).
Stay In: Like most newlyweds, you just paid for a wedding. If going extravagant isn’t in the cards, have a picnic in your living room. No line-ups, no order mix-ups. Just the two of you enjoying being the two of you.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
