Whether you have been dating a while or not long at all…. we all know Valentines is looming around the corner! If you are looking for some ideas that could also include the kids (if you have them or if you have to 😉 ) then read on for a list of our favourite dates (my particular favourite includes wine -not for the kids – obviously, pyjamas and a television!)
For the Adventurous Type….
Be a Tourist!
I bet you know your town like the back of your hand… but have you ever been a tourist? Go to the places where tourists go to and explore. Take cheesy pictures of the landmarks… if all else it’ll be fun to show the kids when they are older 😉 If you fancy going a bit further afield… jump on the train and visit the next town. Use trip advisor for the best places to go and be totally random!
For the humerous couple…
Laugh out Loud at a Comedy Club
For the competitive types…
STRIKE it lucky at 10 pin bowling!
Personally, I am rubbish at 10 pin bowling… I even managed to throw the ball behind me once which is a whole other story (involves alcohol of course). Even if you are useless at this “sport” it could create a few laughs… you could always put the kid bumpers up?
For those feeling a bit brave…
a Couple Photoshoot
Now, we know every (normal) adult hates having their picture taken… but…. this is actually very fun. It’s something you will probably only do once as a couple and you will have the pictures and memories to last forever. Here at Diana Celine Photography, we aim to make you feel relaxed, comfortable and you probably won’t even realise you are having pictures taken!* *well you might a little bit but it’s not as bad as going to the dentist!
Been together a while?…
Look back at old Photographs
Now this follows on nicely from our photoshoot idea as you will be able to do this in years to come! That aside, everyone loves looking at old photos, whether it be your holiday photos or childhood photographs … grab a glass of wine and reminisce. The good thing about this one is you can sit in your pyjamas/yoga pants! (always a good thing)
For those wanting to go back to their youth..
Have a Games Night in
I really wanted to go back to my youth for a “Date night” I had with my other half. When we first met, we used to spend hours playing Tomb Raider on the Playstation. This was well before kids as lets face it… now I have to actually be tomb raider to get into their rooms and do the washing, cleaning etc
I borrowed a console off a friend and after a few glasses of wine, encouraged my other half to keep playing as he was doing a good job (in all honesty, I couldn’t remember how to use the controls after the wine had kicked in).
For the comfy couple
Movie Night in
Again, this can (should) include pyjamas plus you can pause to go to the toilet, eat as much as you like without spending a fortune and if you don’t like the movie half way through…fall asleep or choose a new one! win/win/win
I hope this has given you some inspiration for Valentines this year and future years! If you have any additions or have a twist on any of these ideas, feel free to let us know 😀
