Craft Time Together
Time to see what creative ability lies within. Whether you think you have a creative bone in you or not, both you and your partner will be trying your hardest. With whatever can be found around the house. Create a gift for your partner. Set a time limit, like 60 minutes and create! It will feel like kindergarten craft time but, is a hilariously, fun way to spend your Valentine’s night.
Enjoy Doing Each Other’s Hobby Together
Each of you have different hobbies. Spend an hour or two experiencing, being engaged, and present with your partner and their hobby. It is fun when you can experience the genuine joy that your partner gets from their hobby. Don’t worry after you have fun with their hobby, its their turn to have fun with yours.
Fun Competitions With Hilarious Rewards
Some couples have a hard time competing, because they become so competitive. But, if you aren’t one of those couples, try games of Banana Grams, Yahtzee or Sorry. Creating rewards for winning like having to do push ups, or serenading one another. Discover which games cause the most laughter.
Read the Same Book Together
I love reading! My partner really enjoys listening to audio books. A great bonding experience is to pick a book that you both will enjoy and listen to/ read it together. I have read a book with friends and family before and it is really a bonding experience. You will discuss it as you are reading it and after. It is a great opportunity to connect.
Plan Future Goals for the Team
Now you have goals for yourself. But, do you together as a team have goals? If you don’t, this a unique opportunity to discover how both of you can work together, to move forward on a specific goal.
Future Goal Ideas:
Exercise goals (do 5 Spartan Sprints together and finish as a team)
See certain plays, musicals, or bands together
Savings for a future major purchase (trip, house, car)
Attend events together (book club, networking, host a dinner party 4 times this year)
Write Letters of Appreciation
Take an hour to express your love, admiration, and excitement for your partner and their presence in your life. Each of you have an opportunity to be sincere and funny. Tell them what drives you up the wall and what they do that keeps you smiling. Express gratitude and excitement for everything you two will do together.
