It doesn’t get any better than snuggling up with your special someone.
Either in front of a campfire, stargazing or roasting marshmallows on a Valentine’s Day! With the special day approaching, a romantic camping getaway couldn’t be a perfect way to spend quality time with your partner. We have the perfect camping trips for Valentine’s Day that will make the camping trip truly memorable.
Select the Right Destination
Since this is a special day, you must focus on picking the camping place which both of you would love. There are a plethora of options available to choose from – caves, mountainsides, seashores, dense woods and so much more. Consider a place you both can enjoy and offer optimum privacy for you.
Imagine the Perfect Night
Before you start planning, visualize the perfect camping night. Having a mental image will help you in determining the things you would need to make the trip memorable. Do you want a string of lights? Should you put up a hammock? What meal would you and your partner enjoy? If you have to hike to the spot, keep in mind you won’t be able to carry a lot of things. Plan accordingly.
Don’t Forget the Snuggle Bunnies
Take plenty of pillows and cushions, as well as blankets to make the most cozy and comfy space for you two to snuggle up. Make sure you include knits and wools to stay warm on a cool night.
Select the Music
Of course, nothing can compare to the sound of birds chirping but with the right background music, you can set a perfect mood. You can create your own ambiance with a playlist of songs that have sentimental value for you both.
Heat It Up
A camping trip isn’t complete without hot cocoa and/or coffee. Pack in the supplies to create a perfect cup to enjoy. Chop up and melt some chocolate in a saucepan, and sprinkle some seasoning like caramel or cinnamon and mix with hot milk.
Have the Right Supplies
Your trip won’t be complete without food! But you need to make sure that you pack up easy to clean, durable and lightweight dinnerware to enjoy your food in. Make sure you have some extra plates with you. Take a foldable table to set and enjoy a romantic dinner.
Plan the Meal
Usually when camping, meals are rather spontaneous. However, since it is Valentine’s Day you must plan ahead, and have a special meal prepared. You can look up easy and delicious quick recipes online to get inspiration for a perfect meal. Don’t forget to take some snacks along to munch on while exploring the wilderness or just gazing at the stars.
Sweeten Up the Night
Complete a romantic dinner with something sweet. Include a dessert or simply roast marshmallows to enjoy by the campfire. Be sure to pack a bottle or two of the finest wine to make the camping day experience truly unforgettable.
Essentials to Pack
To make sure the trip goes smoothly, you need to make a list of essentials to pack. Here are some items that you should include in your list:
- Tent – pick a durable and lightweight tent to have proper shelter for the night. Consider the weather you would be camping and ensure that the tent can withstand unexpected rain and storms.
