Valentines Day is right around the corner, and while my husband and I enjoy each others company, we’ve never been big fans of over the top holiday celebrations. That is why we thought others could benefit from some simple and easy Valentines Day Date ideas.
1. Recreate a date from the past
Pick your favorite past date and recreate it. Whether this is a walk in the park or an ice skating night or maybe a little cozy time together on the couch, it’s sure to be a hit for a Valentines Day Date.
2. Cook a meal at home you both enjoy
Every Valentines Day Date I’ve been on has involved food. Now I don’t think food has to be involved, but you are going to need to eat that day anyway. Why not kill two birds with one stone so to speak and make a nice meal you enjoy.
3. Go away together for the weekend
This doesn’t have to be fancy. Get a hotel in your town even, get away together. Visit a nearby city you’ve been meaning to explore or find a way to go camping together for the weekend. Whatever you do, do it together.
4. Get dressed up and watch a movie
No one said you had to spend a ton of money to have a lovely Valentines Day Date together. Pick out a theme or dress in nice clothes and stay home and watch a movie together.
5. Turn off the phones and play board games
This idea might be hard just because I am asking you to give up your phone for a night. You can do anything but be committed to whatever you are doing. For us, this is usually some board game night.
6. Do a Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunts can be fun, but sometimes we make them too complicated. Make it easy on yourself by using a pre-made list and using some theme. Since we are talking about Valentines Day Date ideas a love or heart theme would be cute.
7. Write down Memories of favorite moments and then read them
This is an especially fun date night idea if you have to keep the kids around. Everyone can participate by writing down their favorite memories over the past year. Once everyone has completed this task as part of your Valentines Day Date, read them all out loud so everyone can remember those moments.
8. Make some homemade products for pampering
There are so many great DIY recipes you can make on Pinterest. Try making bath salts or fizzes for a spa-like feel. Plus once you are done making them you get to use them! It’s like a spa night at the house!
9. Go to a movie
This is a very traditional idea. However, there is a reason traditional options are a tried and true favorite. A good movie is soothing to the soul. Plus sneaking in a romance now and then is fun too!
10. Find a fancy restaurant and go out to eat
Going out to eat at a nice place in town is a sure hit for your Valentines Day Date. Don’t hold back and find that place you’ve meant to visit. Make sure if the area is super popular you are making reservations.
No matter what you do this Valentines Day, I hope you do it with love and laughter. Enjoy the times you get to spend with family and friends.
