This year, break the mold of dinner and a movie for Valentine’s Day and plan a unique date that guarantees a great time. Whether this is your first Valentine’s Day together or you’ve been married for decades, Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to remind your loved one how much they mean to you. Here are some unique date ideas that will do just that for you and your Valentine.
Acting, singing, dancing, bright lights and beautiful costumes. What better way is there to spend Valentine’s Day than with a date at a Broadway show? Plan to get dressed up, go out for dinner and enjoy drinks beforehand, and be sure to buy your tickets in advance from Telecharge to reserve your seats. With so many Broadway shows to pick from, there has to be a good fit that you and your date will enjoy. Don’t live near Broadway? There are Broadway touring shows hitting most major cities across the world. Or see a local show.
Dinner is a very traditional Valentine’s Day date. Taking a cooking class where you learn how to create an exotic dish from scratch and then enjoy it with your Valentine, is not. A cooking class is hands-on, interactive and a great opportunity to learn more about a new culture and each other. Sites like Cozymeal can help you book a private one-on-one class.
Sunset Hike and Picnic
If you’re in a warmer climate than we are, pack a picnic basket with wine, cheese, tapenade, crackers, chocolate-covered strawberries and whatever else tickles your fancy. Find a trail that ends with a great view of the sunset and take your picnic with you. When you reach the top, watch the beauty while toasting to your relationship and the future with your Valentine.
Learn to Dance
There are few things more romantic than taking the hand of your loved one, pulling him in close and dancing the night away. Look for group lessons for couples to learn swing, salsa, cha-cha or tango. After a few lessons, you’ll be ready for the dance club, passionately heating up all your future date nights.
Whether your go-to drink is wine, beer or liquor, there is a boozy date idea out there for you and your significant other. Explore a local vineyard with a wine tasting paired with treats like cheese, fruits and chocolate. Sites like Wine Web can help you locate wineries near you. Get a tour of your favorite brewery and learn how your choice beer is brewed. Look for a spirit-tasting class, sip on your favorite liquor and walk out a connoisseur.
Relax at the Spa
Skip the pressure of dressing up for your date and strip down instead with a day at the spa dedicated to relaxation. Indulge in a couples massage, mud baths, saunas and meditation rooms. With your Valentine, you’ll leave the spa feeling refreshed and rested.
Stargaze at the Observatory
Head to your local observatory and spend a night under the stars and the planets. Look through the telescopes and cuddle in the planetarium. Remind yourselves how vast the galaxy is and how important your love is.
Valentine’s Day is usually filled with chocolates, dessert and wine. Instead, spend time with your date getting active and counteracting all the treats. Try a new fitness class together like partner yoga, spinning or bootcamp. If you’re looking to get more adventurous (and the weather allows), try paddle boarding, mountain biking or kayaking.
No matter what date you plan for Valentine’s Day, just remember all that matters is spending quality time with your significant other celebrating your love. Happy Valentine’s Day!
