When the month of February approaches, we see a number of commercials for restaurants. They entice us to grab their deals to ensure you get a seat reserved for you and your loved one. Although they’re a bit pricey, take note, they’re pretty effective as the restaurants are always crowded on Valentine’s Day. And if you fail to make a reservation, the last thing you’d want to do is to get stuck in the four corners of your room, watching a Netflix movie all by yourself.
Don’t worry. Even if you haven’t made a dinner date reservation, you can still celebrate this special occasion and impress your Valentine with something unique and different.
These Valentine’s Day date ideas are truly worth a shot.
1. Sign up for a couple yoga session.
Here’s an invigorating way to spend V-Day. Sign up for a couple yoga session! It is a great way to insert your workout foals while enjoying each other’s company. After that hot and sweaty session, head to the kitchen and prep a Coconut Banana Smoothie or share a bowl of healthy Summery Strawberry Chicken Salad.
2. Enroll in a cooking class.
Cooking together is such a romantic thing to do, so why do you need to dine out in a fancy restaurant? Set a budget and work on a complete set of meal together with appetizers, entrees, beverages, and desserts. By the way, you need not to take cooking classes in restaurants. Just look for what’s available in your location.
Then again, if you’re really short in budget this month, a wonderful alternative is to have your own cooking class. Choose from a wide range of recipes online and work in your kitchen. Don’t worry. Restaurant-quality food won’t be an issue. What matters is that you were able to spend quality time together.
3. Go to the city library.
Spending Valentine’s Day at a bookstore? That may sound like a silly thing to do. But if your partner is a bookworm, this is definitely a great place to celebrate. If you want to make your date night even more romantic, cuddle up with a warm blanket as you read over some love stories.
4. Enjoy a day date.
Forget about typical date nights at restaurants and go for any adventurous day dates instead. Have lunch at local attractions, head to the amusement park, or go for a hike while the sun is up! You know, day dates are highly recommended, especially if it’s your first Valentine’s Day together with your partner.
5. Go dancing.
Okay, when we say dancing, we don’t mean dancing at the club. You can take a tango class or join a salsa club. We’re pretty sure you can easily find one in the vicinity. Better yet, just listen to live music that gets you grooving. It’s a truly unique way to celebrate your love.
6. Book a themed museum trip.
On special occasions like Valentine’s Day, museums often spice things up with some parties and special events. While some decorate the entire place with reds and pinks, others organize tours for two, which are often ended with Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins, truffles, and wine. Of course, there is live music as well. Isn’t that sweet?
7. Have a relaxing spa day.
Yes, spas also capitalize on V-Day with some specials, ideal for couples. At a very affordable rate, you and your partner could have a facial or body massage or other rejuvenating packages. Start looking for the perfect package now to make sure you get the best deal.
Valentine’s Day should not be about fancy dinners and chocolates. It’s high time that you think beyond that. These unique Valentine’s Day date ideas can surely make your day memorable but spending in an activity with a personal touch would make your special someone feel extra special.
