Date ideas for Valentine's Day

  • Get crafty
    If you’re both into DIY, or if you just want to try something new, why not make something together? Valentine’s day cards, a shelf for your office, or something to decorate the lounge. It’s a great bonding idea, pardon the pun.
  • Revisit a special place
    The place where you first met, or had your first kiss (or other firsts) is the perfect setting for a romantic date. Booking the table you sat at in the restaurant where you had your first date, or setting up a picnic in the park where you said “I love you” for the first time will also go over well.
  • Dance the night away
    Find ball room classes in your area, or go to the local club and shake your booty until you can’t shake no more.
  • Go somewhere with a view
    Whether it’s a romantic restaurant, or just a cliff facing the city, watching the sunset together while you sip champagne and whisper sweet nothings is super romantic.
  • Be kids again
    Fly a kite in the park, play a game of hide and seek, or Twister. Play on the swings or simply chase each other around. You’ll be active, having fun, and laughing yourself silly while trying to get your left hand on blue without falling over.
  • Take a walk on the beach
    Nothing is more romantic than looking lovingly into you lover’s eyes while hearing the waves crashing in the background and the feel of sand between your toes.
  • Romantic road trip
    Get in the car and drive! Be spontaneous. Drive to a hotel that’s 20 minutes away, or to the next town. A change of scenery is as good as a holiday.
  • Have a picnic in the garden
    Or even in your living room. The intimate setting has romance written all over it. Have some soft, romantic music playing in the background, with lit, scented candles, and simple, yet sensuous handmade dishes that you can feed each other. Try things like chocolate fondue, or oysters – they’re an aphrodisiac, you know.
  • Surprise them
    Pretend you’ve forgotten all about Valentine’s Day, and then surprise your partner with a romantic evening. If you’re in a long distance relationship, why not save up to visit him for a day or three? If that isn’t an option, send him a special gift with things that have a special meaning to both of you.
