Valentine’s Day is this Saturday and if you are fortunate enough to have somebody to love, you may want to consider doing something a little different this year.
Whether you’re looking for something a bit different to do this Saturday, or if you’re out to impress by creating a memorable first date, you might want to consider one of these these quirky, romantic, fun and relatively inexpensive, date ideas for Valentine’s Day:
1. Run away for the day
Day Trips are an easy bet. For a luxuriating experience, try a spa weekend or treat yourself to a couples massage. If you’ve got a taste for the outdoors why not rent a cabin out of town? What’s more romantic than cuddling up in the wilderness with your loved one and a glass of wine?
2. Recreate your first date
Nothing could be more romantic than recreating your first date with your partner. Whether you return to the bar where you had your first drink, eat the same food you both shared, or rent the movie you first watched, this date is sure to impress. After all, it’s the thought that counts right?
3. The $0 date
This year try a ‘no gift no cash’ policy. This date is the real deal when it comes to finding out whether you and your partner are a match made in heaven. Think old DVDs, people watching, window shopping, etc.
4. Jump for your love
Two facts for you: Exercise induced endorphins improve your happiness AND doing new things together as a couple ignites kim-kardashian-kanye-john-legend-super-bowl01the same feeling as falling in love.
Head to your local Flip Out trampolining arena and spend the afternoon jumping around like a kid with your partner. Mixing up dates with a fun activity is sure to keep those butterflies alive!
5. Catch the sunrise together
Get up early and watch the sun rise together. Unless you’re not a morning person, in which case there’s always the sunset!
6. Karaoke Challenge
Whilst it may not be a first date activity, you’ve surely been together long enough to relish in a little embarrassment. Let each other pick out a song and give those vocal chords a workout. If you head to a local bar prior, you’ll forget how offensive each other’s voices really are.
7. Hire a Moped
And drive. Literally, any direction, to any destination. Everyone knows how much fun adventures can be. How long has it been since you two have done something crazy?
8. Double Date
For those couples who could do without another night in with their other half, why not enlist one of your favourite couples and hit up your favourite restaurant or bar? Making fun of the hopeless romantics staring into each other’s eyes should provide endless entertainment.
