Best Valentines Day ideas for Music Lovers
[gtranslate]

Valentine’s Day is all about romance, but that doesn’t mean you have to walk the path of tried and tested methods.

If you and your significant other are music lovers, there are many cool Valentine’s Day ideas that you can try, especially if you feel like you have been there and done that when it comes to the more typical move and dinner dates.

Let creativity rule, go to a show, go stargazing, play a Valentine’s Day game, make a mix tape, set the mood with a sexy candle, and play some great music to remind you why you fell in love with each other in the first place.

Here are a few of our favs to make Valentines a day or night to remember.

Strip Poker

Pop on a few of your favourite tunes, and keep it classic with a fun little game of Strip Poker. The inventive little kit may appear to be a work of literary art on the outside, but open the ‘book’ and you will find a small book containing an original short story about a game of strip poker called Winner takes All, and underneath that a pack of original cards, 48 chips and the rules of the game. There is even a handy crib sheet to the ranking of ‘hands’. The perfect present for the person you desire.

Make a Mixtape

Whether you make a playlist for each other or make one as a surprise gift, a mixed tape can be a fun and personal way to share music or other audio content with someone special. It allows the creator to curate a collection of songs or clips that have a specific theme or meaning, and to share their taste in music. Additionally, it is also a great way to express feelings or emotions, tell a story, or create a specific mood.

Make a Spotify playlist: this is a no-brainer if you already have an account. Make a customised playlist for the one that you love, and send it via a sweet little message.

Create a Youtube Playlist: YouTube, similar to Spotify, allows for the creation of playlists. A unique aspect of this feature on YouTube is that the playlists can include not only music, but also movie clips, TV segments, and vlogs that hold personal significance or may be enjoyed by others.

USB Playlist: Use an updated cassette tape like this great little number, available on ETSY. It’s the perfect gift to serenade your loved one with personally selected tunes. More effort than a Spotify playlist, but worth it, because when they plug this baby into the computer, it’s a visual treat, that screams some serious feels.

Star Gazing

Star gazing is considered very romantic because it often takes place in a peaceful and secluded setting, and can provide an opportunity for couples to spend quality time together while enjoying the natural beauty of the night sky. The darkness and the twinkling lights in the sky make the ultimate romantic ambiance. Additionally, what’s not to love about the vastness of the universe and the awe-inspiring beauty of the stars which evoke feelings of wonder and amazement?  It’s also a great way to make memories together, as a couple, as you can choose a specific location that you can go back to and look at the stars together.

If you’re in a city, you can try visiting an observatory or planetarium. Whether you hit Observatory Hill in Sydney on your own, or book a tour in the Blue Mountains you can’t go wrong with the night sky.

Plan a Staycation

Create a relaxing spa day at home. Give each other massages and take turns creating a relaxing atmosphere with candles and music. If you need a little guidance or inspiration, look to Jonny, because this hot little number knows how to light up the room on Valentine’s Day. Made from Soy wax, and hand-poured in Melbourne, ‘Flame’ has a burn time of 45 hours. All you need to do is light it up, breathe it in, and slide into the soothing mood set by the flickering flame. Scented with top notes of lemon, and black pepper,  and base notes of woody, cedarwood, and galbanum, it more than sets the tone for a spicy and warm prelude to a sensual and romantic Valentine’s day.
