1. Build a Bonfire
Picture cozying up with your sweetheart by a fire you created. Does it get better than that? We think not. We aren’t the fire-starting experts, but we definitely want to encourage you to be safe! Read this guide on how to start a bonfire. All that’s left to do is pull out the marshmallows!
2. Paint & Sip Class
Paint and wine classes are all the rage. You certainly have friends who’ve gone for a fun night out but maybe you haven’t gotten around to trying it. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to schedule your first painting and sipping experience!
3. Recreate your first date
Do you remember your first date? Did nerves make it extremely awkward, or did it feel like a firework show you’ve been waiting years to see?
If option one sounds like you, you’re in luck. Now's the chance for a do-over minus the nerves. Make this year’s Valentine’s Day Date a re-creation of your First Date.
And, hey, why not re-live a few of those awkward moments and enjoy laughing about them now?
4. Themed Dinner and Movie at Home
Thank you to Martha Stewart for perfectly pairing recipes with our favorite classic movies. From When Harry Met Sally’s apple pie to Lady and the Tramp’s spaghetti and meatballs, you’ll be able to enjoy a delicious meal and movie combo! Not a chef? Order pizza and watch Saturday Night Fever!
5. Book your adventure in an escape room
Does solving puzzles under pressure sound more up your alley? Working with your significant other to find the key that ultimately leads to your freedom may sound terrifying to some. For other couples, escape rooms are the perfect opportunity to mix adrenaline and collaboration. No matter the outcome, this makes for an entertaining hour!
6. Enjoy Live Music
Depending on the music tastes of you and your significant other, there might be a local concert venue with an artist you’ve always wanted to see in concert or a venue in a nearby city you’ve been meaning to explore. Use Valentine's Day as your excuse to buy those tickets!
7. Special Valentine’s Meal at Restaurant
Restaurants love to offer you an exclusive, one day only, five course meal you’ll only see on February 14th. While the meal might be more expensive than you typically pay, it could be fun to splurge and enjoy being pampered with your bae.
