Forget an overpriced Valentine’s dinner with your other half or drinks with the girls (again) for Galentine’s Day – do something a little different this February
…making a terrarium together! These tiny gardens are a quirky twist on the traditional bunch of roses, last for ages and – bonus – help combat indoor air pollution, too. Perfect to do with your partner or pals. Check out jarandfern.co.uk for classes around the UK.
Sign up to a yoga sesh with your other half, as trying a new challenge together can help you feel more satisfied with your relationship. Oh, and regular yoga sessions may increase men’s sex drive (you can thank us later). Find a local class, or make a romantic mini-break of it, at bookyogaretreats.com
Up the ante this Valentine’s and book a visit to an ‘escape’ room to test your couples skills and see how fast you can solve tricky challenges and win gems, The Crystal Maze-style. Single? Go with a friend and, as you’ll be joining a group of strangers, you may even bag a date. (Research shows that being on high alert can increase our attraction to others.) Find out more at the-crystal-maze.com
Our fave music evokes nostalgic feelings that make us more connected to others. So, why not make a modern-day mixtape – aka playlist – for your best friend or your other half on Spotify, reminding them of childhood classics (such as that routine you performed to S Club 7 at primary school, or first-date dances). Bring on those good vibrations!
