5 Date Ideas
It’s that time of year again. Love and romance are in the air and your sweetheart has high expectations.
But what the heck are you going to do this valentine’s day?
Whether you’ve only just met, been together for ages or are currently in a long-term relationship.
Valentine’s day is the perfect opportunity to fall madly in love with each other once again and appreciate your bae.
But there’s more to valentine’s day than just roses and a box of chocolates.
If you can’t think of anything other than watch Netflix, don’t worry: we got you covered.
Here are some top-notch valentine’s day date ideas.
1. BACK TO WHERE WE STARTED
This one is a great idea for all those long-term lovers out there.
Sure, you love each other dearly. But let’s be honest.
After years and years of living together, holidays with the in-laws, laundry, and all those other “not-exactly-sexy-stuff”, take their toll on the best of us.
So, this valentine’s day, why not go back in time?
Try to recreate your very first date together, down to as many details as possible.
If you watched a particular movie, watch that movie again.
If you went to a certain restaurant, then book a table!
Relive the magic of falling in love all over again.
2. HELLO THERE, STRANGER
If you’re as much of a Modern Family fan as I am, you may have already tried this valentine’s day date idea.
This year, do it like Claire and Phil; become strangers to each other. Just for one night!
Agree to separately come to a public place and pretend you don’t know each other.
Introduce yourself to your partner, like you are meeting each other for the first time. This will require a bit of imagination and acting skills!
But if done correctly, the ‘stranger’ roleplay can really help you to get to know your partner all over again. Even appreciate them all the more.
Who knows? You might even get lucky with this hot stranger.
If you and your sweetheart are in a long-distance relationship, there’s no reason to miss out on the fun. Start a text conversation with them as if though you’ve never talked to each other before.
Remember back when your text conversations were full of flirtatious teasing and sexual tension?
But now that you’ve been in a long term relationship, your text conversations are probably more about mundane stuff. After all, you’ve already ‘conquered’ each other and there’s no need to woo each other over.
That’s why pretending to be strangers, even if it’s just through texting or chatting, can help you both.
You get the chance to see your partner in a romantic light once again! And bring back that exciting feeling you had every time you talked to each other.
3. VICTORIA’S SECRET EAT YOUR HEART OUT
This one is especially suitable for everyone out there.
This is one of those original valentine’s day date ideas, to show how much they appreciate their partner. While also getting to enjoy a great show!
Be brave and venture into the local lingerie store to find your lover three sets of gorgeous lingerie. Don’t be cheap now! Go for the lush, sexy options that she wouldn’t treat herself to.
First of all, women love to get lingerie from their partners.
Second, you get to enjoy a fun fashion show. Everybody wins! That will make for one good backstage party.
Just be sure to get her sizes right!
Send your significant other some surprise lingerie and tell them they can only open their gift on valentine’s day. Turn on Skype or video chat and let the show begin!
4. SCAVENGER HUNT
If you have a little extra time to spare in the days (or weeks if you wanna go big) before valentine’s day, organize a scavenger hunt for your sweetheart.
Scavenger hunts aren’t just for kids.
Everybody likes to go out on adventures and look for clues.
The most important thing is that you’ve put in time and effort to do something for your partner. And that will always be appreciated.
Hang up red ribbons around the neighborhood and ask your partner to follow them.
At the end of the hunt, they will find the treasure. In this case: you!
Make sure you’re waiting for them in a super romantic setting.
Maybe a spot where you can watch the sunrise. Or a dinner date. Perhaps a little picnic, with roses, candles, a bottle of wine Marvin Gaye: the works!
Rather keep it indoors?
Leave little notes around the house hinting your partner where to find the next note.
Like “Your next clue is in the room we last kissed” or “Look for your next clue near your favorite book”.
In the end, the clues will lead them to their valentine’s day present.
5. VALENTINE’S DAY DATE FOR A LDR
Is your valentine not near you on this romantic holiday? No worries, there are still ways you can show them how much you care.
Send them a Valentine’s day package. Include their favorite treats.
Maybe sweets that they only sell in the town where you live. Or your most comfortable sweater that they love to steal, scented with your perfume or aftershave.
And of course: a romantic, handwritten love letter.
Enjoy this valentine’s day, to all you lovebirds out there!
