An infographic which has the same title as the blog post on it and a gift box with love hearts

Valentine's Day doesn't have to be all about roses and candle lit dinners. Whether you're celebrating with your significant other or getting together with friends, consider stepping outside the traditional Valentine's Day box. In this blog post, we'll explore five alternative activities that bring couples and friends together, with a special focus on the creative and versatile.

1. Ditch the crowded restaurants and opt for a cook at home extravaganza. OK it doesn’t have to be that extravagant! Whipping up a delicious meal together can be both entertaining and intimate. Host a potluck dinner where each couple or friend brings a dish to share. It's a communal way to celebrate, enjoy diverse flavours, and try something new.

2. As a couple or group of friends, plan an outdoor activity day. Whether it's hiking, biking, or even a scenic picnic, being in nature provides a refreshing change from the typical Valentine's Day routine.

3. Spice up your Valentine's Day with some friendly competition. Gather friends for a board game night filled with laughter and strategic moves. Couples can team up or go head-to-head in a game of friendly rivalry.

4. Rather than going to the movies, create your own cinema experience at home with your partner or a group of friends. Choose a theme – classic romance, comedy, or even adventure films – and enjoy a movie marathon. Don't forget the popcorn and drinks!
