Valentine's Day is a lot of pressure. The pressure to reserve a spot at the perfect restaurant, pressure to express exactly how you feel about someone, pressure to have crazy-amazing sex, pressure to be clever and thoughtful, pressure to surprise (but not too much) and delight (to the maximum degree).
Honestly, these pressures are mostly manufactured and consumer-driven. They also don't actually help us in making memories or reconnecting with the ones we love. You couldn't accomplish those things in just one day, anyways. So, why not go back to basics and make the goal of the day to simply enjoy each other's company, doing things you both genuinely want to do?
We've pulled together some ideas for keeping things low key this Valentine's Day, in case you want to do something but not too much of a something:
Think beyond dinner
Woo-woo for two
Good old fashioned fun
Make a whole day of it
