10 Ways to Show Your Love on Valentine’s Day

The typical image of Valentine’s day is two people, in love, sharing a passionate kiss and a box of chocolates. While that definitely works for some people, it doesn’t work for every relationship. There are many different ways to show your partner you care about them; you just have to find what works best for the two of you.

So this Valentine’s Day, if roses and chocolate aren’t working for you, try out one (or all) of these 10 ideas instead!

1. Take your partner out on an activity-date

This takes creativity because everyone can go see a movie or eat dinner together easily; but here are few ideas: go bowling, play laser tag, go to a museum, go skating, go to a carnival.

4. Write your partner a love letter

Tell them why you love them and how much they mean to you–make it as sappy or as naughty as you want; just make sure that what you say is true and from your heart.

Write down things your partner has said and how much they meant to you. Provide a detailed description of your response to an action he or she took. Your words may be worth much more to your lover than any costly present you could ever offer him or her.

5. Ask your partner for help with something

There is always something you need help with–homework, yard work, etc. So why not ask your partner for their assistance? This will show that you trust them and respect their opinions. And yeah, everyone likes to feel appreciated.

6. Make a scrapbook of your memories

Gather pictures together from throughout the years (or just print and cut out some pictures off the internet), glue them to paper, order them nicely all in one book, and give it to your partner. This too, can be as sweet or as naughty as you want!

7. Give your partner a coupon book

Fill it with things like “one free massage” or “one night where you choose what we do.” Just make sure they know there are some conditions attached! Your book can include things that you know your partner would love to do, but never has time for.

9. Make a time capsule

Write letters to each other, add a few mementoes, put them in a jar or box, and bury it somewhere special. Then make plans to dig it up next year and read what you wrote!

10. Draw your partner a bubble bath

Fill the tub with scented oils and bubbles (or just plain water), draw the curtains, light some candles, play some gentle music…and enjoy! This is an especially relaxing treat for those who work hard all day!
