4 Easy Ways to Spice Up Your Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is coming up quick, and you might be looking to do a little more than order in and watch a movie (but if that’s what makes you both happy, more power to ya!). If you want to give your S.O. a night they won’t forget but you’re not sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place. Here are a few tips to plan a romantic night for you and your boo!

1. Plan a romantic evening

It’s fair to jump straight to a date idea that might make your S.O. happy: eating at their favorite restaurant, watching their favorite movie or maybe a double date with your best friends. If none of those have the “wow” factor you’re looking for, try something that will not only make them happy, but surprise them! Maybe one time they mentioned wanting to see a show that was coming into town or wishing they could travel somewhere for the weekend. Instead of just going to their favorite typical restaurant, surprise them with something that you know will make them happy and shock them with how thoughtful you are!

2. Give a little something

In search of a gift outside the norm?  Check out Etsy for some great V-Day gift ideas. Feeling more creative? Log into Pinterest and find something cute and creative you can make for your partner (try typing in Valentines, Gift and Homemade for some ideas). At a crossroads of what to get your boo? Even if you and your S.O. don’t usually exchange gifts, a handwritten letter, a framed picture of the two of you, a bouquet of flowers or some baked goods are always great go-to gift ideas.

3. Treat yourself (& your boo)

Make your partner swoon when you get some alone time together. Aerie recently had a 2 for $25 deal, where you get one super cute pair of panties and a matching bralette for $25. Check out your local Aerie location to see if they’re offering that deal, or check out their website if you’d rather order some cute numbers from home. Victoria’s Secret also offers some really cute and spicy lingerie for when you and your S.O. are feeling *frisky*.

4. Take a visit to a pharmacy

Take a quick trip over to your local pharmacy or drug store and find some new ways to spice things up in the bedroom. Try a different type of condom or lube to see if any of that would be right for you and your partner. 😉
