There's nothing wrong with traditional Valentine's Day activities: dinner, a movie, some alone time at home. The most important part of the holiday is making time to be together. But the enjoyment can last a lot longer than a day when you take a little time to plan for a more unique Valentine's Day experience. Try one of these special ways of celebrating the day to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Give your loved one an in-home massage
Going out for a couple's massage is fun; giving each other massages can be even more intimate. Dim the lights, put on some soft music, try out some massage oils and see how relaxing your home can become.
Plus, couples who give each other massages can get other benefits. A recent research study reported by Science Daily found that couples who massage each other have improved well-being and lower stress and perceive their relationships as more stable than before they started massaging each other. Interestingly, it didn't matter whether the participant was on the giving or receiving end of the massage. The results remained the same.
