This Valentine’s Day, why not work on an exciting project and finish something that you’ve both been hoping to accomplish?

If you’re looking for ideas on what to do this Valentine’s Day –why not consider embarking on a project together?

Working on projects together can be a fun way to work towards a goal. As a bonus –you’ll end up with the finished product that you’ll both be able to enjoy after the day is over.

From cooking to re-doing the bedroom, here are three ideas to help inspire your Valentine’s Day adventure.

Have a Cooking Adventure

Instead of going out for dinner, why not spend some time together in the kitchen? Treat yourselves to some new cookware, and then have a cooking adventure recreating your favorite dish from a local restaurant, making a new recipe, or simply cooking your favorite meal together.

Re-Do Your Bedroom

Spruce up your bedroom together. Consider splurging on some décor that you might not normally purchase such as new lampshades, candlesticks, curtains, or that bed linen set you’ve been wanting. Fixing up your room together can be a great Valentine’s Day treat, and one that you’ll be able to appreciate long after the day is over.

Make a Soundtrack

If cooking or decorating sound a bit too ambitious for this Valentine’s Day, why not create a soundtrack instead? Make a compilation of songs that are special to you as a couple, or a collection that features a combination of each of your favorites. Much like making a mixed tape back in the day, creating a digital playlist is a great way to create a collection that will evoke special memories each time you play it.
