Candle lit dinner. Chocolate. Roses. So cliché! With Valentine’s Day approaching it’s time to plan a thoughtful and sweet date that your partner will enjoy and remember for years to come. Whether you decide to spend valentine’s day indoor, outdoors, inexpensive, or lavishly, these 15 Valentine’s Day date ideas will ensure your V-Day isn’t boring.
1. Go Dancing
Valentine’s Day is a great occasion to try something new. Take that salsa class, learn the tango, try dirty dancing, or even swing dance. Going dancing will liven up that special day with your significant other and bring some sexiness to your night. Fellas, this is the time to be your most suave self, and ladies, this is the time to let your hair down and put your heels on.
2. Wine Tasting Tour
Have fun drinking delicious wine and getting tipsy together. This day time date gives you the chance to learn the history of some great wineries and the wine they produce and allows you to get a few bottles for later in the evening. Night cap anyone?
3. Scavenger Hunt
Let’s call it a love hunt? Leave clues that will lead your partner to various places around the house, around town, or both. These clues can be love letters, photos, meaningful moments you’ve had together, things you know about one another, and let them lead to a grand gesture. This builds excitement and anticipation, and leads you to a night of endless possibilities.
Serenade your significant other with love songs. This date will bring the fun, it’s silly, it’s active, and you can learn a lot about a person by how they karaoke. Whether the relationship is new or you’ve been together for years, get boozed up and sing your heart out.
5. Recreate Your First Date
You got them for a reason. Now it’s time to take your partner back to where it all started and relive that exciting day one more time. Play back your first date step by step (or to the best of your ability), but without the awkward pauses and mishaps. This romantic gesture is guaranteed to impress. Reminisce about all of your fondest memories together from the start of the relationship through to the present.
6. Spa Date
This is one of the perfect Valentine’s Day date ideas for couples that want to relax and feel sexy together. Being oiled, scrubbed, and massaged will relax your mind and body and leave you feeling rejuvenated. And is an experience that will bring the two of you close, both physically and emotionally.
7. Comedy Show
Laugh the night away at your favorite comedy club. You know the saying, “laughing is good for the soul”, well it’s also great for your relationship! Couples who laugh together tend to have higher quality relationships. So spend your Valentine’s Day night with smiles and giggles.
