What is Sweetest Day? To put it simply, Sweetest Day is always celebrated on the third Saturday of October. This year, that happens to be Oct. 19. It’s a day to be sweet by sharing a kind thought, a small gift or a gesture of kindness. It’s a day to give a card with a sweet message to someone you love. You can also give gifts of candy and other sweets. Even if you’ve never heard of it, that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a date! This is a perfect opportunity to try something new with your partner. Below are three ways to celebrate that beat giving a box of chocolates!
1. Make Sweet Treats Together
Making sweets sure beats buying them in a box. It will also give you a fun Sweetest Day activity to enjoy together. You can either take a class together or do something fun and easy at home, like dipping and decorating candied apples or making chocolate covered strawberries. We all know chocolate is sexy!
2. Write a Sweet Handwritten Note
This is one of the easiest yet gesture-packed things to do on Sweetest Day. A couple meaningful words can make for one happy heart. So jot down how you feel about your special someone, then cleverly stash them around to be found. Your love letter may not be the most perfect one ever written. But as long as it comes from you, and is sincere, it will be perfect in the eyes of the person who receives it.
3. Relax with Your Sweetie
Escape the pace of ‘normal life.’ Enjoy quality time with your partner with fewer distractions. Go to the beach and watch the sunset together, take a walk in the park while you whisper sweet nothings to each other, hang out under the stars and make s’mores or even just take a romantic bubble bath together! Whatever you decide to do to relax with your partner, make sure it’s different from what you always do.
Overall, use this day as a reminder to spend time with your loved one. For those that ordered their SpicyBox, using one of your unique dates is the perfect way to celebrate this year’s Sweetest Day!
