Some Of Best Valentines Day Date Ideas
If you don’t know exactly what you would like to do with your significant other this Valentine’s Day, however you do know that you don’t want to get stuck in a Netflix or takeout rut—or, even worse, you end up with an overpriced and unoriginal prix-fixé dinner—that’s where these ideas come in.
It doesn’t matter if you’re single, coupled up, somewhere in between, or just looking for a fun V-Day activity with your friend. Ensure your Valentine’s Day is cliché-free with these creative, non-boring, decidedly non-cheesy ideas.
Take A Virtual Cocktail Class
Rather than going out for drinks, learn the best way of marketing them yourself. There are plenty of fun virtual cocktail classes that will make your Valentine’s Day that much more special (and boozy). Do a quick Google search for mixology classes or events. Easy peasy!
This is a very basic however highly romantic way of spending the day with your partner. Take a few days to prepare the right playlist and create a romantic atmosphere at home. You can order out some food, open a bottle of wine and cuddle up in front of the TV.
A Paint And Sip Class
A funny way to bond with your S.O. or friend is to take a virtual paint-and-sip class together, which involves – you guessed it – painting a masterpiece (or something) while sipping on wine or a cocktail. Plus, you’ll have a memento you can cherish forever.
Make Playlists For Each Other
Spend some time creating playlists for each other on your favourite streaming service. Select songs that spark memories of your relationship or simply tunes you know your significant other will love. After you’ve done this, pour some wine, turn on the music, and reminisce.
Go Roller Skating
Or ice skating. The aim here is to channel your favourite hand-holding scene in just about every classic rom-com.
Go On A Take-Out Tour.
Any foodies out there? If you put yourself in the foodie group, don’t limit yourself to just one meal this Valentine’s Day. Rather, go on a take-out tour in your area by picking up different dishes at different restaurants. Try a cuisine which you would never have tasted otherwise.
A Wine Bar Crawl
Instead of remaining at just one spot, hop from place to place and order different kinds of wine – as well as tapas – along the way. It’s waaay more interesting than a boring ol’ sit-down dinner (and even your regular bar crawl). Of course, it doesn’t hurt to stash one away for later too. For the at-home version, simply order various kinds of wine for delivery, add a charcuterie board to the mix, and start sipping.
Take A Hike
Even if it’s cold where you live, going on a scenic hike is a great way to unplug and relax this Valentine’s Day. Maybe there’s a favourite spot where you live, or you might want to try one of the best hikes in the U.S. Either way, you’re bound to have a fun time because you’re in great company.
