Why not try something different this Valentine’s Day ?
There is more to this day of love than expensive gifts, sugar laden chocolates and fancy, overindulgent dinners. Try something more romantic (and healthier) this year to show that special someone just how special they really are. And if you’re spending Valentine’s Day solo, plan something beautiful to shower yourself with love!
INSTEAD OF AN EXPENSIVE DINNER…
Cook something fancy and fun at home. Getting busy in the kitchen can be a great way to create some special memories with your lover. What’s more romantic than a home cooked, candle lit dinner?!
[Pinterest is always great for some recipe inspo]
STEP UP YOUR CHOCOLATE GAME…
Forego the ordinary Valentine’s day chocolates in those heart shaped boxes. Give your valentine a healthy, indulgent superfood instead. Yeah, that’s right, these kinds of chocolates are actually good for you.
[Try these options]—
- Equal Exchange Organic Chocolate
- Alter Eco Sea Salt Truffles
- Vosges Haut-Chocolat Super Dark Super Foods + Matcha Green Tea
- TAZA chocolate sampler
DINNER AND A MOVIE IS SO ORDINARY…
Do something out of the ordinary! Try a hike or an outdoorsy adventure, instead. It’s a great way to spend quality time together and have some deep conversation.
Not feeling the nature option? Then go dancing or take a dance class, heyyy! Let loose and have fun showing off those dance moves.
USE YOUR WORDS NOT YOUR WALLET…
Regardless of how much money you spend on these types of holidays, what really matters is the thought and intention behind the act. Spending quality time together or expressing your love through words of affirmation (say.. a sweet note, song or a well-written card) will be treasured by your beloved more than any gift you could buy.
DON’T FORGET TO GIVE YOURSELF A LITTLE SOMETHING ON VALENTINE’S DAY (AND EVERY DAY)…
Valentine’s Day is not just about sharing love between couples. Show yourself some love too– not just on V-day, but everyday! #SelfCareisHealthCare
