I think we can all agree that there is far too much stress in life. Under normal circumstances we must deal with the typical stressors like work, family, and relationships. We have had to manage a lot more than that, and do you know what? That really takes a toll on how you feel, and it can take a bit of joy out of life as well!

We say that it is time to focus on enjoying life a bit more and this month is a fun time to do it! With Valentine’s Day here, you get a chance to have fun and make memories, but it does not have to add work to your to-do list! Today we have fun, easy, and stress-free ideas that will help you get to the fun part of the holiday without the stress of planning!

Spicy movie date night: Everyone knows exactly what ‘Netflix and chill” really means, and that can be a great date night for couples. This is especially true if you are living in areas where the weather on Valentine’s Day is likely to be unpleasant. So, you can go that route and focus on the wine and food along with your movie. You can also take things up a notch with entertainment that is extra spicy. We will be happy to help you with that, just head over and find something fun to watch!

Hotel rendezvous: The important thing about hotels is that you do not have to worry about making the beds or cleaning the tub, you just get to relax. And let us face it, it can be a sexy outing for a couple no matter how long you have been together. You do not have to go fancy and expensive, find anything in your area and make it a night. If you want to make the night extra special, do not tell your partner about it, let it be a secret right up until you pull into the parking lot!

Wine tasting: If you have a taste for the finer things in life, or fancy yourself a wine expert in the making, a wine tasting is an excellent choice. You get to dress up, enjoy a night of wine and the company of your partner. Wine bars may offer small foods to sample alongside the wine or teach you about wine and food pairings. These are easy to find, just search for wine tastings in your area. Reservations may be required, though, so if this is your speed, you will want to look soon.

Sexy dinner: Okay, so the dinner does not have to be sexy, but you get to be. Here is the idea, plan a dinner at your favorite place to eat as a couple. It could be somewhere you go often or someplace you have always wanted to go. Wear something that makes you feel lovely, but under it wear something extra sexy. Your partner does not know that under your outfit is something more delicious than dinner, you get to reveal that to them. You can take a picture of yourself in it and save it until you are sitting at the table. You can also send them a subtle sign when you are eating, but we’ll leave that to your imagination.

You deserve a romantic night out, and planning it should be fun, not stressful. We hope you have fun with these ideas and would love to hear about your own date night tips! And of course, if you are looking for some inspiration, we hope you stop and browse, you never know what you’ll find!
