When it comes to birthdays, anniversaries and other occasions, giving gifts like chocolates and flowers is really a little too predictable and not terribly exciting. Sure most people enjoy chocolates and flowers, but give it a weeks days and they'll be eaten/dead and your partner will have nothing to show. Of course jewellery and gadgets are an option too, but when you've given these a thousand times before can you really say they have the same kind of meaning and importance?
As such then, if you really want to make your partner feel special, you need to think outside of the box - and the best way to do this is with an event or an experience. Research shows that the best way to spend money if you want to increase happiness is to spend it on days out and experiences, while this will also give you both something far more memorable that you can look back on and help the two of you to bond and enjoy a shared experience.
Here are a few unique experiences and activities to try with your partner that will make your next special day much more memorable and that will help to bring you closer together.
Hot Air Balloons
A hot air balloon ride is the perfect romantic activity for any couple that is nicely slow paced and will allow you both to enjoy amazing views. It's exciting without being too 'extreme' and it's an ideal photo opp.
If it's a romantic cliché you're looking for, then how about going horse riding together on the beach? Or if you want something a little more unique but just as memorable how about riding donkeys up a mountain? Donkeys have a lot of character and you can really find yourself bonding with your steed.
Dining in the Dark
A romantic meal is another 'typical' way to celebrate Valentine's Day or a birthday, but if you want to mix it up you can make this more interesting by enjoying your meal in the dark. There are plenty of places that offer this strange experience, and it's a brilliant way to engage your other senses while doing something you've probably never experienced before.
Going to an Aquarium
This one is a little less expensive, but it's just as romantic and different. The eerie glow of the fish tanks is very soporific while there's lots of chance to chat and wonder at the marvellous creatures together. If your local aquarium will also let you swim with any of the fish then this can make it even more of a memorable experience.
For the action-loving couples bungee jumping is a great activity to enjoy in tandem. It's certainly one that will bring you closer together too as you cling to each other for dear life.
For something a bit more cultured and relaxed, a wine tasting evening can be a lot of fun. You get to drink lots of free wine and you'll learn something along the way too.
