Whether it’s to rekindle the spark between you and your partner or just something to remind yourselves what it means to be committed to each other, Valentines’ Day is meant to be celebrated by both of you.
While it might seem daunting at first, making Valentine’s Day special for yourself and your partner can be a relatively fun and fulfilling affair. You just need to keep in mind that this day is for both your partner and yourself to enjoy. Here are a couple of things you can do while on an outlet shopping date with your partner on Valentines’ Day.
Have A Candle-Lit Dinner
There’s something special about intimate dinners lit by candles. For one, it’s probably how you and your significant other started dating. Another, eating is considered a social activity, hence, you get to bond and converse with your partner.
But even though it seems cliche, just having dinner with your partner on Valentine’s Day sends a message that you’re consistent. Just like how love isn’t always a first sight kind of thing and how it’s supposed to actually be a thing that’s nourished and maintained. Apart from that, you’re taking time for your partner which, in this fast-paced world, means a lot. So whether it’s lit by candles or just your typical LED lighting fixture, a hearty and intimate dinner with your partner will always be special.
Of course, it’s important to ask your partner where he or she wants to eat. If you have an idea and want to surprise him or her, just make a reservation so you don’t have to wait in line if it’s a popular restaurant.
Paseo Outlets has a slew of dining options available that you might find particularly suited for your taste. If you’re craving for pizza and pasta, there’s Amare La Cucina where they serve fresh oven-baked pizzas and the like. If you’re looking for an authentic Japanese dining experience, there’s the Umenoya Japanese restaurant. There’s Samgyupsalamat, Gohyang and Matgalne for a little bit of Korean cuisine. In case you want to eat delicious traditional Filipino food, there’s Razon’s restaurant and the Kanin Club.
Watch A Movie Together
While it’s true that watching a movie together as a couple might sound cliche, it’s important to remember that it’s actually a good bonding experience. Apart from having to enjoy the film itself, you can share your thoughts and feelings afterwards.
Of course, given the pandemic situation, some outlet malls might not have their cinemas open so you can opt to just watch from the comfort of your own home.
Buy Each Other Gifts
What’s one of the more common things you can do in an outlet shopping mall? Shop, of course! In the spirit of Valentine’s’ Day, you can shop as a couple and give each other gifts selected by your significant other.
Given that it’s Valentine’s Day, there’s bound to be a sale or promo for items that involve couples. However, if you’re not into buying couple shirts or the like, you can always opt to buy premium clothes, bags and shoes for your partner in Paseo Outlets.
It houses over a hundred or so premium international brands from clothing, shoes, bags, furniture and luggage. The best thing about it is that there’s ALWAYS a sale going on in Paseo Outlets. With discounts that run from 20% to 70% off in some shops, you can always be sure that there’s a deal waiting for you and your partner, especially on Valentines’ Day.
Plan A Moment With Each Other
Maybe after shopping or before a hearty dinner, you can stroll across the outlet shopping mall and talk. It doesn’t have to be special, nor does it have to be a serious and maybe life-changing conversation. Sometimes just being with each other and being in the moment is all that counts when it’s Valentine’s Day.
Of course, if you want to have that conversation with your partner and he or she is willing, it’d be great to have that in an otherwise scenic location with lush greenery. Paseo Outlets has wide open spaces and an al fresco atmosphere where you can privately converse or, in case you’ve planned it, propose.
Whichever activity you choose to have on Valentines’ Day, remember that it’s about you and your partner’s celebration of your romantic relationship. It doesn’t always have to be grand nor special, but it helps if it is.
