Whilst we firmly believe that love should be celebrated every single day, Valentine’s Day is a particular opportunity to put your other commitments on hold and give your partner the love that they oh so truly deserve. In between organising a jam-packed evening of activities or staying at home and watching a film with some take-away food, putting some effort into Valentine’s goes a long way and will surely be appreciated by your partner. That being said, here are 5 alternative date ideas for this year’s Valentine’s Day.
Binge on your favourite movies or series
Staying in and turning on Netflix is a go-to for many couples who don’t want a standard restaurant date but there is so much more that could be done. Hang up some decorations, prep some theme-appropriate snacks and binge on your favourite films and series in the comfort of your own home.
Finding your best Bolt Food choice will be as challenging as choosing a good Netflix movie, but we all believe that dedicating the time to make a good decision is the only choice to make it unforgettable.
Regardless of the weather conditions, going on a camping trip with your partner and bracing the elements together will definitely strengthen your relationship. Find a comfortable spot, put on a fire, order some food if you want to, and enjoy a romantic night under the stars…
…and we recommend avoiding hunger to keep a good mood on these occasions. Find a proper spot with multiple choices around you before starting your adventurous date. Bolt Food can make it easier for you, you will never regret it.
Go for a hike
Even if you are not the most physically active couple on the island, a trip into the great outdoors is always a good shout. Fresh air, peace and quiet and some much-needed physical activity will not only benefit your relationship and also your physical health.
Malta has an abundance of gorgeous natural locations which are perfect for such an activity so it shouldn’t be too difficult to find the ideal hiking spot. Keep yourself hydrated and find yummy energy choices to be motivated till the end of the hike; some good options are always available in the Bolt Food app!
Build a fort
No matter how old you get, building a blanketed fort unlocks a sense of child-like wander in all of us and if you’re on a budget, this could make for the perfect romantic gesture on Valentine’s Day.
Escape reality (and a hefty restaurant bill) and create your own cushioned Valentine’s fortress, accompanied by all of your favourite board games, books, food and entertainment.
Organise a game night with other couples
There are a lot of things that come to mind when someone asks you what it means to be in a relationship but a word which comes to mind every single time is a team. While some romantic time together is always an option on Valentine’s Day, the extroverts and social butterflies out there may want to invite a few other couples for a fun game night!
Order some food, break out the Monopoly and Pictionary and work together to find out which couple is the board game champion.
Naturally, at the end of the day, it’s all about sharing and caring. Apart from sharing the moment, sharing your feelings, the quintessence of beautiful common memories is sharing food. Spend time on creating the beautiful memories and Bolt Food will cover the rest!
