Out-of-the-Box Valentine’s Day Ideas

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so you may be on the search for fun ways to spend the day with your special someone. Although the COVID-19 pandemic may mean that Valentine’s Day will be celebrated differently this year, there are still plenty of options to make the occasion memorable. Here, we share a few of our favorite out-of-the-box date ideas:

Make Breakfast in Bed

If you’re skipping an elaborate dinner at a restaurant this year, consider starting off the day by preparing breakfast in bed for your significant other. You can keep it simple with heart-shaped pancakes, or try your hand at something more challenging, like this raspberry “cheesecake” French toast recipe.

Recreate Your First Date at Home

Valentine’s Day offers the perfect opportunity to get sentimental. If you’re not comfortable going out to recreate your first date as it unfolded, you can bring elements of that first meeting into your home. For example, if you met at a coffee shop, whip up your favorite java drinks from the comfort of your kitchen. If you enjoyed an unforgettable meal at a restaurant together, recreate the menu and enjoy it over candlelight at your own kitchen table. Regardless of what happened on your first date, Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to rekindle those memories and reflect on how your relationship has grown.

Have a Game Night with Conversation Starters

Regardless of how well you know each other, the answers your partner gives to conversation starter prompts may surprise you. You may be delighted to learn your SO’s answers to questions such as “what’s your favorite memory of when we were first dating?” or “which famous couple would we like to go on a double date with?”. Conversation starters often segue into deeper, and sometimes more meaningful, discussions, so they are a great way to bond.

Take a Virtual Mixology Class

If you’ve been wanting to get more adventurous with your mixing skills, consider signing up for a virtual mixology class with your special someone. Together, you will enjoy an evening of expert guidance as you navigate the world of mixology. Plus, you’ll have a chance to sample as you go.

Although Valentine’s Day may be a more low-key affair this year, it’s a great chance to shake up your routine and experiment with new date night ideas.
