It’s official! We are a few days into February! Love is in the air! This means a lot of people are thinking about ways to spend Valentine’s Day. Well, if you’re going for something different this year, you’re in luck! This list doesn’t include your typical romantic candlelit-dinner-and-a-movie kind of date. The great thing is you can do these for dates not just for Valentines. Of course, some chocolate and a bouquet of flowers would be icing on the cake.
Want to keep the sparks alive? Here are pretty unconventional ways you can celebrate love as a couple:
Volunteer at a local charity. Helping out together can be a powerful bonding experience for you as a couple. Plus, it doesn’t cost much, just your time, effort and perhaps transportation expenses. Ivolunteer Philippines has various volunteer opportunities this month such as feeding, tutoring and storytelling sessions.
Run or Jog together. You can go on a jog around the neighborhood or even join a run or marathon. There are good reasons why you need to consider this idea: fitness, shared goals and endorphin high. Takbo Ph has an awesome list of runs couples, friends and even families can do in this season of love.
Enjoy a Progressive Dinner. You can eat appetizers in one food stall, have your main course in another and finish dessert somewhere else. A simpler way to do this, I think, would be to go to a food park. You can even go food park hopping!
Go Glamping. Short for glamorous camping, glamping means having the best of both worlds –nature trip and the comforts of home. Being together in a comfy tent with your beloved away from all the stress might just be the exquisite date you’ve been waiting for. SpotPH features ten great clamping spots in the country.
Go on a hunt together. This can be a bargain hunt, book hunt, dessert hunt or treasure hunt. Adventurous couples can even try geocaching. This is an outdoor recreational activity which uses GPS (Global Positioning System) in hunting for “treasures”. Participants use coordinate to search for a waterproof container (geocache) which may contain things of personal value to the finder. Just check out Geocaching for more information.
