Adventure Is Bae

With options such as paragliding at Adventure Aero Sports Association (priced at approximately INR 2000 per person) and bungee jumping at the Wild Tribe Ranch (priced at about INR 1500 per person), you can totally sweep him off his feet and yet not be mushy about it. 

Bring Home A Pawwsome New Friend

Does having a pet mean you're taking your relationship forward? Hell, yes! And if your boy has been wanting a pet for too long, here's a chance to make that wish come true. Check out these animal shelters and bring a furry friend home. 

Make Time For Scenic Getaways

Does your boy love travelling? Gift him exactly that this Valentine's Day. Go on a road trip or head to the hills. There are plenty of romantic getaways near Chennai too. Pack your bags and head to his favourite destination for some quality time with him. 

Go Shopping With Him

Yes, boys also love shopping, and if you have a lazy partner who has been ignoring his shopping list for too long, use this V-Day to take him around town and help him tick things off his bucket list. If you have a partner who does that for you all the time, we bet it would be quite sweet for him to see this reversal of roles. Find the best malls in Chennai here. 

Say Yes To Flowers & Chocolates

A beautiful bouquet of freshly cut flowers can cheer up anyone, so why should we leave boys out of this? Surprise bae with a lovely box of flowers that best suit his personality with a meaningful message. We're sure it will bring a smile to his face. And if you feel like spoiling him a little more, add a box or two of chocolates or a cake to sweeten the deal. Cliché but works like a charm every time. Here's where you can order flowers from this V-day.

Gift Him Hours Of Entertainment

Does your boy love movies? Opt for couple seats at Sathyam Cinemas and go on a movie marathon with him. If you want to really make a romantic gesture, take him on a drive to ECR and watch a movie under a starry sky at Prarthana Beach Drive-In Theatre. If it's gaming he enjoys, head to Mystery Rooms (they have games for two people as well) or to Gameistry for some board game fun.
