Romantic Dates for Valentine’s Day

Instead of going with the age-old box of chocolates or dozen roses, why not try for creating a romantic Valentine’s Day date for your special someone?  We aren’t talking about the fancy restaurant with the pre-set Valentine’s Day menu either.

Recreate a Special Memory

Whether it is the first time you said “I Love You”, or the place you first met.  Recreate a date that involves the place or ideas behind that memory and your special someone will surely appreciate your efforts.

Dates for a Year

Buy a box of kiddie Valentines and write down different date ideas on each one. The dates can be as simple as a homemade dinner, a trip to the zoo or a picnic in the park. Put the valentines in a decorative box and have your special someone draw one out for Valentine’s Day.

Take in the Arts

A trip to a museum or gallery makes you stop and appreciate the beauty in life and in love.

Get Some Fresh Air

Whether you opt for a picnic in the park (or your backyard) with your favorite foods or cuddling on the beach in a blanket watching the stars, being outside with your significant other can be refreshing and romantic.

Have a Sports Day

Surprise your someone special with memorabilia from their favorite sports team and then make the present extra special by telling them you will be going to the game or match that day.

Putting in the extra effort and thinking outside of the (chocolate) box on Valentine’s Day is always appreciated. What ideas do you have for romantic dates this Valentine’s Day?
