Valentine’s Day date ideas is always something that comes up. Whether it’s because plans are being made at the last minute or because you genuinely don’t know what to do.
While there are tons of things to buy for Valentine’s Day, there is not always an impressive amount of date ideas. Everyone always seems to rely on the same old thing.
With COVID and different restrictions all over the country, it’s hard to plan one thing. Some people can go out and about; others can’t.
Cook a different meal together and watch your favorite movie | This way you keep something familiar (favorite movie) and mix it up with something new.
Flip a coin for your destination | Get in the car and pick a number. This is how many turns you’re allowed to make. Flip a coin at each turn. Heads go right, tails go left. Where you stop is where your date is. However, while this is fun and interesting (you don’t know where you’ll end up), make sure you bring food with you!
Try a hike | If it’s warm where you are, get outside and go for a hike or a walk. This could be a fun time to take your absolute favorite path or try a new one!
Play a game | This is a great way to get to know your partner better. Where it’s a game of truth or dare or a game of Monopoly, you’re sure to learn a lot about your significant other. Play 20 questions | Similar to playing games, take the time to ask each other questions. Decide on a number count (whatever it may be) and ask away!
Favorite Things List | Both of you write down 5 of your favorite things. Each of you takes a turn picking which thing to do from the other’s list. This is a great to spread out the dates and keep it interesting!
Hang out in a fort | Go back to your childhood and make a fort out of the couch cushions, blankets, and kitchen chairs. Bonus points for hanging lights and going all out. Add in some cushions on the floor (or an air mattress) and sleep in the fort, too!
Bing your favorite tv show | Take some time together and watch your favorite tv show to binge. Consequently, this provides for great quality time and a low key night that is meaningful to you both.
Do that DIY project together | Let’s face it the honey-do list isn’t getting any shorter. Work together to knock one thing off it. It’s great quality time and it’s productive!
Dance party | Grab your favorite playlist and dance it out.
Compliment each other | While this may not seem like it takes a long time, each of you go your separate ways and write down an agreed on a number of compliments for the other. Then, get back together and share them. Bonus: you can combine this with one of the other dates.
