15 Valentine's Day Date Ideas


Need some ideas for Valentine's Day?  If you're anything like us, it's usually the day before Valentines Day (or even sometimes that afternoon) before we start planning that "special" evening.  Here is a list of 15 date ideas you can easily put together last minute.

1.  Let the fun begin when you first wake up.  Leave love notes in places for him to find throughout the morning (pillow, bathroom, by the coffee maker, next to the car keys and in the drivers seat of the car).  He'll be thinking of you all day!

2.   Schedule a picnic lunch date to take him away from the office.  Pack some romantic foods (strawberries and whip cream, chocolates, his favorite candy) and during your picnic walk down memory lane.  Chat about your first date, best vacation, etc.  *If it's too cold outside for a picnic, set up a picnic at home in your living room.

3.  Take a stroll on the beach or lake.

4.  Make dinner reservations in a town 30 minutes or more away.  Get out of town- even if it's just for a few hours.

5.  Go for a horse-drown carriage ride.

6.  Go to a jazz concert.

7.  Find out who serves the BEST desserts in town and go share a couple of "out of this world" desserts.

8.  Hang out in a local coffee house.

9.  Turn out the lights and use string lights or candles while you eat dinner or have a romantic evening on the couch.

10.  Make a playlist, move some furniture out of the way and create your own private dance floor.  (Be sure to include some Sinatra on your playlist).

11.  Stop by a playground.  Have a Nerf football or a frisbee packed in the car and have some fun together.

12.  Make a fire in the fireplace and snuggle up.

13.  Borrow your kiddos Wii or XBox and add some good'ol competition to the night.

14.  Grab some massage oil and an old sheet and give each other a massage.  Youtube can help you with technique if you need some ideas.

15.  Do some star gazing.  Take a blanket outside (or you may have to drive a bit to get out of the city).  While you're enjoying the star light show, find out more about each other.  Ask questions and dig deeper to really connect.
