Whether you and your significant other have been together for years or just a little while, the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift is time spent together. Why not consider doing an out-of-the-box activity this year?
Take a hike: Sometimes it takes a tourist to make us remember the ridiculously beautiful nature that’s in our backyard. If you add a picnic to the mix, your date will love it.
Brewery or wine tasting: There are plenty of opportunities available in our backyard for a great day of tasting.
Challenge each other: Spend a couple of hours playing Monopoly or any other board game that takes your fancy.
A themed dinner and movie night at home: Watching Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck fall in love in Roman Holiday is definitely more satisfying when accompanied by a big plate of homemade spaghetti and meatballs.
A poetry reading: Check out the love letters and poems of the best writers at the Parkes Library, open a bottle of wine and take turns reading each other your favourites.
Karaoke: If singing is your poetry, celebrate your chemistry by singing classic couples duets, or listen to your favourite love songs.
An Escape Room: By now, most people know about this activity and have done it with friends, but how about doing it as a couple? There is an Escape room in Dubbo!
A sunset (or sunrise) watch: Plan your day to watch the sunset from a special place.
Glamping: The date doesn’t have to end at sunset. Why not take a break from your regular routine and spend the night with some nature? Cozy up in a tent with your favourite snacks.
Stay home and make cocktails: There should be some form of food too, of course, but why not spend an evening attempting to recreate your favourite cocktail.
Do yoga together: Join a class and con- sider it couple’s therapy without the label.
Easy come easy go: If you just want to spend quality time with each other without a fuss, make sure to book a table for the special Valentine’s dinner at the Parkes Services Club!
