Valentine's Day is almost upon us—a time when expectations to have the perfect day planned are at an all-time high. What's the perfect restaurant to book? Where's the most romantic place to have a cocktail or two?
Scratch all of that. Why not treat your partner to a romantic getaway, surrounded by serene nature and beauty from every angle, instead? From tree houses and cabins to luxury tents, experience a different type of Valentine's Day this year with unique accommodations that are sure to give you a weekend beyond compare.
Tips to make Valentine's Day a success
1. The gift
Finding the perfect gift can cause a lot of trouble, especially with the market saturated with generic and cliché gifts that don't quite hit the mark when it comes to expressing how you feel about your loved one. With a romantic weekend getaway, this becomes the gift—taking away a lot of the pressure that surrounds this part of the day.
2. Dining out
Valentine's Day sees many couples booking reservations to dine out at a different or expensive restaurant. The stress of finding the best place that both you and your partner will enjoy is gone with a glamping stay. The two of you can relish in the comfort of your luxurious accommodation in front of a home-cooked meal, which, let's be honest, is usually way nicer than dining out.
3. Dress to impress
Finding the best outfit for the Valentine's Day can come with a lot of money spent, as well as a lot of time wasted scrolling on the internet for an outfit that suits the occasion. While glamping, the natural surroundings allows a more relaxed approach with no expectations. Of course, if dressing up is something you particularly enjoy, a romantic getaway still allows you to do this, simply without the gaze of other couples that are also celebrating.
4. A full day of plans
A meal or drinks after work is the usual plan for many couples on February 14. However, when you make plans for the entire day—and maybe even more!—it allows you to spend more quality time with your partner, something that you may not get enough of amid the busyness of your normal, day-to-day schedule. Glamping allows you to make 100% of the time quality time, with relaxing together and enjoying one another's company being the only thing on your agenda.
