Are you looking to spice up your Valentine’s Day this year? Maybe you’re simply not the mush-gushy, lovey-dovey type. Or perhaps the thought of romance makes you kind of queasy. Whatever the case, we’ve got you covered on how to bring the laughs this upcoming day of love.
It’s no secret that love is in the air on the weeks and days leading up to Valentine’s Day every February 14th. Each year it’s always the same: Bouquets of roses, pink and red teddy bears, and heart-shaped everything adorn the windows of shops everywhere.
Aren’t you getting kind of sick of it?
Okay, maybe not sick, but if you’re like us then maybe you’re searching for ways to spice things up a bit this Valentine’s Day.
And no... not that kind of spice. Get your mind out of the gutter!
By spice, we simply mean finding other ways to celebrate with the loves in your life. Like maybe instead of buying your busy wife a box of chocolates this year, you could grab her a coffee mug that doubles as a wine glass to enjoy during her downtime. Maybe we’re a bit biased, but we promise she’ll love you more for that one. *Winky-face emoji*
Ok, but seriously let’s get to the point. If you’re in the mood to break from the norm here are 3 solid tips for planning the funniest Valentine’s Day date, you’ll ever have.
1. Stay Home Instead
It’s a tale as old as time. You try to make a special surprise dinner reservation. The restaurant is either packed or no longer taking anymore reserves. What do you do? Chance it and end up with a 2-hour wait time?
How about treating your Valentine to a home-cooked meal and date night in, instead?
Ditch the stress of making dinner reservations at some over-priced, fancy-schmancy restaurant, and avoid any wait times or lines. After all, nothing says, “I Love You” like a thoughtful and delicious home-cooked meal, bonus if you prepare it together!
No matter what delicious dish you prepare, you can’t forget the seasonings! Set the mood on the dinner table with some cheeky salt and pepper shakers to give you and your loved one a shared laugh and create memories to last for every Valentine’s Days to come.
Oh, and even if the recipe doesn’t call for the extra dash of TLC, be sure to include that, too!
2. Take Happy Hour To-Go
You’ve been shot by cupid’s arrow and it’s 5:00 somewhere! Time to enjoy some drink specials with your special someone.
Everyone loves happy hour, but who’s to say it must be at any ol’ ordinary bar?
Grab your valentine, your favorite beverages (we recommend a Chocaloate Truffle Martini or Sweetheart Cocktail), and head to your favorite local spot in town. Again, this doesn’t have to be a regular bar.
Maybe you’re by the beach at sunset or a beautiful nearby park, anywhere that has a special meaning to you and your partner. The options are endless!
You can really help set the mood with these NSFW tequila glasses.
If cocktails aren't really your thing, don't worry! You can enjoy a cold beer in any of our favorite drink koolers. In fact, the Prescription Drink Kooler is just what the doctored ordered to treat this year's love bug!
Seriously, what’s better than Valentine’s Day with the perfect date, sipping your favorite beverage, in your favorite place?
Drink responsibly, of course!
3. Netflix and Chill
Grab the popcorn and your favorite snacks, settle in on the couch, and prepare to watch a series of rom-coms this Valentine’s Day.
Nothing beats spending quality time with your valentine by having a chill night in, binge-watching Netflix’s latest show or rewatching some of your favorite cult classics.
Your comfiest pajamas are a must for movie night, but we promise our Inflat-A-Pals will be the real stars of the show. They're the comfiest 3rd-wheel to your date-night in.
Finally, save your 'dough' and share a 'pizza' your heart under this giant, cozy blanket to top off the perfect movie night at home.
No matter how you plan to spend Valentine’s Day this year, we’ve got you covered with some sure-fire ways to give your love some laughs.
