Valentine’s Day is a holiday that a lot of people hate and a lot of people love. I think that if you love someone, you should do things to make sure they know it 365 days a year, not just on one day. I do, however, think it can be a day to do something a little extra specific for your certain someone.
Today I wanted to share 6 Valentine’s Day date ideas that go beyond flowers and chocolate. These are ideas that will create memories with your significant other for a long time to come.
Go ice skating. Since Valentine’s Day is in the middle of February, ice skating is a great option. It involves going outside which isn’t something that happens often if you live in a cold-weather state. It’s also super fun even if you’re not good at ice skating. Top off the date with some hot chocolate to warm up afterwards.
Take a cooking class. Cooking is one those things can be really fun when you do it with someone you love. It’s also a great excuse to try new foods and bring your newly learned techniques home for dinner date nights at home in the future!
Go wine tasting. Taste a few different wines, and when you find something you like, buy a bottle and share it together after dinner.
Recreate your first date. Go to the same restaurant, order the same drinks, and pretend it’s your first date all over again. A lot of first dates are pretty horrific, but when you end up on one with someone great, they can be pretty amazing.
Go to a comedy show. There are few things better than laughing together so a comedy show is the perfect spot to spend some time together. It’s hard not to have a good time spending the night laughing with your best friend.
Make dinner in. Just like taking a cooking class, cooking together at home can be just as fun. The bonus of making it at home is you can wear cozy clothing and cuddle up to watch a movie right after. Sometimes staying in together can be just as romantic as going out.
Hopefully these Valentine’s Day date ideas gave you a little inspiration to change up the norm and do something fun with your special someone. Whatever you decide to do, I hope you have an absolutely amazing time with your love or great friends!
