Last Minute Valentines Day Ideas!

Last Minute Valentines Day Ideas!

College students often struggle to find time to organize an ideal Valentine’s Day celebration because of their busy schedules with classes, papers, and extracurricular activities. Students shouldn’t be worried though, as creating an unforgettable moment for your loved one doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. Amid your hectic schedules, consider these simple and meaningful Valentine’s Day celebration ideas.

Firstly, Think about creating a Memory Jar. Collect a mason jar or any other available container, and then fill it with personal notes that reminisce about your best times together, inside jokes, and reasons you love one other. Your special someone will appreciate this small but sincere gesture.

Secondly, get off campus and create a scavenger Hunt. Taking a break from your demanding schedule, arrange a brief scavenger hunt around your neighborhood or on campus. Provide hints that direct your significant other to spots of interest or unexpected surprises. Use your imagination to come up with hints; add inside messages or memories that you two have in common for a more intimate touch.

Keeping things simple, you could also assemble everything you’ll need for a comfortable, simple evening such as a movie night. Add necessities like your favorite drinks, your favorite movie or game, popcorn, and your favorite snacks. It’s a simple and quick method to create a unique atmosphere without having to get out of your apartment or dorm room.

Next, you can make an expressional playlist. Invest some time in selecting songs that are important to your relationship. Sharing this playlist with your significant other can be a heartfelt way to remember your bond, whether the songs bring up memories of your time together or just make you think of one another.

On the more cheesy side, savor a late-night picnic. Use the romantic atmosphere of the evening to your advantage by having a late-night picnic outside beneath the stars. Parks such as the Lee Richardson Zoo and Harold Long Park are easy close spots to campus. For an unexpected and quiet date, gather some blankets, pack a few easy snacks, or order takeout from a local favorite. Then, head to a nearby park or peaceful outdoor area.

Early riser? Consider going on a coffee shop crawl. Spend the afternoon visiting different coffee shops and sampling pastries and brews at each one. Good choices in GC are Patrick Dugans and Central Cup.  It’s a carefree and easy way to spend time together discovering the quaint places of downtown Garden.

If you’re really looking to relax, make a makeshift spa night. Use fragrant candles, handmade face masks, and DIY foot soaks to turn your living area into a spa haven. Treat one another to massages and soothing ways to spend a restorative and private evening together.

Even with your busy schedules, college couples may enjoy a meaningful and stress-free Valentine’s Day celebration with these simple heartfelt ideas. The secret is to prioritize spending time together and showing each other your love and gratitude with kind actions.

Hello All, my name is Caleb Metzen. I’m currently a sophomore studying Communications as the Chief Editor of the GC3 Media Team.  I have lived in Garden City my whole life, so I’ve been around GCCC for a long while. I am a part of the GCCC Baseball team that I grew up watching and spend a hefty amount of my time in the dirt at Williams Field. Outside of school and activities, I enjoy spending time with my family and practicing guitar. I am an avid follower of the K-State Wildcats and the Kansas City Chiefs. If you see me sprinting around campus I likely forgot something important and am now late to wherever is next on my overpacked schedule. Being a local of the Dirty G I’ve had the blessing of meeting and growing connections with many of the kind-hearted people in this small town and I look forward to meeting more around campus.
