Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I am continuing my series, “Valentine’s Day with Linda.” This post will be Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day.
A lot of you may already have plans for Valentine’s Day and some of you may not. These date ideas don’t have to be with just your partner – it can be with a friend, a group of friends, relatives, anyone. So just because you may not have a Valentine, it doesn’t mean you can’t partake in these events!
Depending on where you’re from, beach date may be out of the picture. If you’re living in a warm place like Florida or Southern California or one of the Islands, then a beach date may be perfect. Personally, beach dates are fun because you can roll around in the sand, play in the water, play volleyball, walk around, etc. Beach dates aren’t just about tanning, but if you’re into that, then that’s totally acceptable, too.
This also depends on where you live. If the weather isn’t as cold as the Northeast Region of the United States, go to your local park or a nice one with a basket of food. I had a few picnic dates in the past with my boyfriend and I loved it. You can make the food yourself or purchase them in the morning. This is a good way to enjoy nature and be around people you love.
Dinner by the fireplace.
This can be in your own home or at a restaurant or even a friend’s house. I love snuggling up with my boyfriend and even my friends by the fireplace. We’d be in our pajamas and blankets with takeout food. If you prefer to make the food yourself, that’s fine, too. A conversation and dinner by the fireplace is always a great option.
Wine Tasting Tour.
If you are a wine lover, go to your local wine tasting tour. There’s always one going around. This is a great way to spend quality time with your partner or friend while tasting delicious wine.
Breakfast in Bed.
Can’t go wrong with breakfast in bed. You can either make the breakfast for your partner or hint to your partner that you would love breakfast in bed. OR you can make breakfast in bed for your kids and family. This is such a cute way to bring people together and also romantic for the couples.
I personally don’t like fancy dinners but for those of you who love dressing up and going out, this is a great option. Be sure to make reservations at least a week or two in advance because they might be booked up. You can get dinner with a view, on a boat or in the city. I love dressing up and going to fancy places but I also don’t have proper table manners to be at a fancy place (haha). This is a great choice if you also want to include the family as well.
If you love nature, bonding with your partner or friends is a great way to spend Valentine’s Day. You can hike in the snow or if it’s hot in your area – it’s a great way to appreciate nature, spend time with your partner/friends and get good exercise for the day!
If you and your partner/friends are working all day and only have time to get together at night, why not watch a movie? This doesn’t have to be at the actual theaters. This can be at the comfort of your own home. Turn on Netflix and choose a random movie.
I spent Valentine’s Day at a concert a couple years ago and it was amazing. I was surrounded by people with the same interests, who loved the same artists and it’s a good way to be around people if you don’t have a Valentine. For this concert, I went by myself and mingled with everyone around me. You can go by yourself or bring a friend or even a partner. Listen to some good music, surrounded by people with the same interests!
This is related to hiking but more so for those of you who want to spend extra money. This can include a hot air balloon ride, sky diving, bungee jumping, zip lining, water rides, etc. This also depends if where you live is hot or cold or not!
If where you live is cold or experiencing winter, try to go ice skating. It’s a great way to have fun, be around people you love and good exercise. I suck at ice skating but this gives me the chance to hold on to my boyfriend so that I won’t ever fall!
Finally, a game night with the family. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be with just your partner. Surround yourself with friends and family and have a game night whether it’s playing cards like Uno or board games like Sorry and Monopoly. This is a good way to have fun and be surrounded by people you love.
