Top 5 Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and hopefully you have already done something for your significant other or you have planned something magnificent for that special someone. But, I’m sure most of you would rather wait until the last minute. Here’s a quick top 5 list of some of our better Valentine’s Day date ideas.
#5 Movie & Dinner
An old staple with a little bit of a twist. Everybody loves dinner and a movie but I never thought that was a great order for a date, especially if it is your first date. Our advice: go to the movie first! Going to the movie first will give you and your date plenty to talk about at dinner. It can sometimes be difficult to come up with interesting things to say to a total stranger. But, if you have something mutual to talk about, you’ll be surprised at where the conversations will take you.
#4 You Bring the Booze, They Bring the Paint
This is a great idea for those with (or most notably without) artistic talent. The idea is simple: you bring your own bottle of wine to an art studio and you and your special friend try your hand at painting. They offer a wide array of painting types – flowers, landscapes, people, etc. It’s fun because you’ll have an actual art teacher telling you what to do and how to get better (if you are actually good at art.) It’s even more fun if you aren’t an artist because you can make all sorts of “art” when you are intoxicated.
#3 Dine & Dash
No, I’m not talking about skipping out on the check at a restaurant. Instead of chowing down on a 5 course meal, go somewhere for shared appetizers and drinks. After you love birds are done with that, go to the gym or go for a run or do some sort of physical activity. Building up those endorphins is a great way to increase the intimacy.
#2 Chocolate Tour
Yes, a chocolate tour. These tours are offered in most metropolitan areas and are a gathering of a small group of people with a tour guide leading you on a tour of the local bakeries and chocolate shops. The tours are about 2 – 3 hours long and you walk from store to store, collecting and sampling a wide variety of chocolates. This is great gift for any chocolate lover because you can eat as many samples as you want and not feel bad because you’ll be walking it off.
#1 Adventure is Out There!
Valentine’s Day is really about telling your significant other how much you love and care about them. One of the best ways to do that is to do something a little bit out of the ordinary to make it a special morning/day/night. A little thought goes a long way. If you like rock concerts but you don’t often go to one, find tickets for an upcoming show. If you have never tried rock climbing, go to a local rock climbing gym. If a broadway show has always been on your bucket list, knock it off by planning it around Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day can be as special as you make it, so make something special out of it!
