There’s a number of different ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Some people like to go all-out with an expensive restaurant and movie tickets, while others prefer to stay in. Here are some Valentine’s date ideas (or everyday date ideas) if you haven’t already made your plans.
The Classic Fancy Dinner: There’s a reason this is such a popular option. There’s something charming about getting cleaned up, putting on nice clothes, and heading into town for a classy dinner for two.
A Wine Bar or Brewery: Not interested in dinner plans? Skip the meal and head straight to the good part by going to a wine bar instead. If wine isn’t really your thing, the two of you can find a craft brewery instead.
A Weekend Trip: If you’ve been together for a long time, try heading out on a retreat the weekend before or after Valentine’s Day.
Cook Dinner at Home: Dinner might still sound like a good idea even if you forgot to make reservations (or maybe don’t have the money). Instead, do some grocery shopping and get a white linen tablecloth and some candles to have a nice dinner for two at home.
Takeout and a Movie: Sometimes, Valentine’s Day is just about getting some free time to spend with the love of your life. In that case, the two of you might just like to order takeout, snuggle on the couch, and watch a movie.
