This will likely require restaurant reservations for February 14th, but they’re worth it for a romantic date night at a popular local restaurant. Many chefs design a special menu for two with multiple courses and an extra romantic atmosphere. Expect a fun evening filled with good food and a fancy dessert meant for two. It’s the perfect date for food lovers who enjoy a special night out.

Do a Valentine’s Day Photo Shoot

This may sound like a unique date idea, but it’s one of those dates you’ll be so glad you did! Couple pictures aren’t just meant for engagements and weddings, they’re something you should do often to document your love.

And if you’re the stereotypical grouchy dude that hates photos, give your spouse the gift of having a great attitude and booking this just for her. I promise she’ll thank you for it.

Go Ice Skating

An ice skating date is a great way to fit in an active date idea and add a little romance. Hold hands while you skate, or laugh while you attempt to skate around the ice. Bonus points for combing it with a hot chocolate date too!

Go Bowling Down Lover’s Lane

It may surprise you, but your local bowling alley likely gets in on the celebrations of Valentine’s Night with lover’s lane packages. They often turn the lights down low, flash red and pink heart lights, and play romantic music. You’ll find food deals and adult beverage deals that make for a fun day to make a bowling date night happen.

Romantic Night at the Theater

Buy play tickets. There’s something about dressing up and seeing something professional that gets you in a romantic mood. This year Hamilton is touring locally, and I’m just saying I don’t know many people who wouldn’t be thrilled with that as their Valentine’s Date date. 

Get a Couple’s Massage

This is so romantic, so relaxing, and really great use of a valentine’s date night budget! Look for promos where many spas offer packages and romantic bonuses (like a bottle or wine or sparkling cider, fresh fruit plates, or bonus time).
