Don’t get us wrong, we at Elements of Rockville Centre appreciate a nice card and a box of chocolates just as much as anyone else. But what about celebrating love in a creative way this year? Why not try out one of these unique Valentine’s Day ideas for a fun twist on the holiday?
5 Creative Valentine’s Day Ideas Everyone will Enjoy
1. Couples Massage
Getting a couples massage is a perfect Valentine’s Day activity for so many reasons. It relieves stress. It encourages bonding. It’s cheaper than jewelry and much better for you than candy.
Plus, it’s not just for people in romantic relationships. Individuals bring their friends and family members to Elements of Rockville Centre for couples massages all of the time! You’ll enjoy the experience regardless of who you bring.
Also, in case you missed it: from now until Valentine’s Day, we’re collaborating with 1-800-FLOWERS on a deal that includes 40 percent off two dozen assorted roses when you purchase a couples massage gift card. Take advantage of it while it lasts!
2. Singles Massage
If the whole couples massage thing isn’t your cup of tea, no worries. Show yourself a little bit of love and get a massage alone, or even get yourself a membership to the Elements Wellness Program, which entitles you to monthly massage at a discounted rate and more. You deserve the peace and relaxation!
3. Make a DIY Gift
We don’t mean burning a cheesy CD of love songs or just cooking dinner here. Do something a little bit more personalized and out of the ordinary.
For example, Lovebook Online allows you to literally write a customized book (it’s not actually that complicated, don’t worry) that will be printed for your significant other. Another great idea is an alternative bouquet. Rather than flowers, create one out of candy, stuffed animals, photographs or anything else you can imagine.
4. Group Fitness Class
Even if you’re not a gym buff, hear us out on this one. Studies show that couples reap tons of benefits from working out together, ranging from closer emotional bonds to more efficient workouts.
Not to mention, you’ll feel much less guilty for eating a ton of Valentine’s candy or a fancy dinner. It’s a win-win!
5. Volunteer for a Good Cause
Helping out at a local nonprofit or food bank is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Valentine’s Day ideas, but why not give it a try? Many nonprofits experience big increases in volunteers from Thanksgiving until New Year’s, then see a steep decline.
Volunteering will make you feel great about yourself while giving you the opportunity to spread love to the community you live in.
