With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s the right time to start planning the perfect date for your partner to celebrate your love. If you’re one of those who can’t think beyond red roses, chocolates and a candlelight dinner, here are some ideas to create a unique and memorable Valentine’s Day experience for your loved one in the Pink City. Not only these heartwarming ideas are going to put a smile on your partner’s face but will also ensure a meaningful and enriching time together for the two of you.
SIP AND PAINT
Raising a toast to your love with a glass of wine in a candlelit setting of a high-end restaurant is passé. This Valentine’s Day, why not sip some wine while painting and create a work of art together? Shyam Nagar based Art Studio and cafe, The Art Ghar is organizing a ‘Sip and Paint’ event on 12 February to mark Valentine’s Day. “As a part of this Valentine’s Day package, we are offering two glasses of wine, art material and a guided painting session for INR 2100 per person. Since February is the month of love, we have also introduced heart-shaped canvas that will be available for people throughout the month to paint”, tells Shraddha Jain, the owner of The Art Ghar. “One can also come with their friend, parent or be their own date!”, she adds.
A THERAPEUTIC POTTERY MASTERCLASS
Pottery is a great way to not just bond with your loved one but also de-stress. A JLN Marg situated pottery and ceramic studio, Clay Botik is organizing pottery workshops for couples throughout the day on 14 February from 10.30 am to 5 pm. “In the 1.5-hour long workshop, the participating couples will be introduced to the basics of pottery. They can make a pot of their choice with the help of an instructor. They will also be given a chance to explore and experiment with clay on the moving wheel all by themselves. Supplies will also be available to decorate the pot and whatever the couples create at the workshop can be taken home by them as a memorabilia”, shares Deeksha Gupta, Founder of Clay Botik. The workshop is priced at INR 3000 per couple.
This Valentine’s Day, let the beating of hearts meet the galloping of horses! Owing to the surge in Covid-19 cases and the extremely cold weather, the annual polo season of Pink City, which is usually held in January, is taking place in the month of February this year. This gives all the lovebirds a chance to spend some quality time with each other while watching an exhilarating game of polo instead of the usual coffee or dinner dates. Entry to the polo matches is free and open for all.
Pro Tip: Add a romantic walk in Central Park to your itinerary with this plan.
UNWIND IN THE LAP OF NATURE
If you and your partner love to spend time outdoors, then this option is a no-brainer. On the foothills of Nahargarh, lies ‘Kishan Bagh’, a magnificent park with a natural desert landscape. Made using natural materials and resources found in Rajasthan, the 64-hectare desert park is replete with sand dunes and indigenous trees like Khejri, Rohida, Kumatiyo, Akada, Dhatura, among others. Located in Vidyadhar Nagar, this fascinating site is still an unexplored territory when compared to the other spots in the city and should definitely not be given a miss. The entry to the park is priced at INR 50 per person.
SHOP FROM LOCAL ENTREPRENEURS
If you and your partner believe in the tradition of buying gifts for each other on Valentine’s Day, then why not support the local entrepreneurs and small-scale businesses of the city while doing so. World Trade Park is organizing a flea market especially centered around Valentine’s Day on February 12 from 2 pm onwards. A number of homegrown brands from the city will be participating in this market and showcasing their handcrafted products and gift hampers. In addition to this, there will also be activities for couples like tarot card reading, games etc.
No matter which option you choose, remember the most valued Valentine’s Day gift is the time spent together.
