Cupid is getting his arrows ready! Are you and your S.O. planning something for Valentine’s Day, but don’t want your whole town to be there? Ditch the typical date night out with a set menu and crowds of people for an intimate night in with just you and that special someone. While Valentine’s Day is a time to pull out all the stops and do something special for your sweetheart, it doesn’t have to be fancy to be the perfect date night! We’ve come up with some great dating ideas that are fun, romantic, and don’t come at any price!
If your lady is one for scrapbooks and memory boxes, this sentimental hunt will make her fall even more in love with you. Each clue of the hunt can include a photo of the two of you and a poem or a special memory that the two of you share. You can add little gifts along the way or even set the path to you with valentine’s conversation hearts leading her to her clues. Leave little notes along the way that she can save in her box or add to her scrapbook. You can be waiting at the end with a gift or have the gift hiding at the end of the scavenger hunt. This is perfect for the bride who wants a special Valentine’s Day, but one that is more intimate and between just the two of you.
Should the weather allow it, turn on the fire place, get your wine and cheese ready, and enjoy an intimate and cozy picnic in your living room! Gather some of your favorite foods and a bottle of champagne and take the celebratory Valentine’s Day meal to your favorite spot in the house! Take this time to catch up with another, turn on your favorite movie, and just make the night about the two of you because truly that’s what it’s all about!
Feel like staying in and doing something other than watching Netflix? All you need are some scented candles, soothing music, and a bottle of your favorite wine. Turn your home into a soothing spa, where you can relax and enjoy each other’s company without the pressures of dressing up. Good quality spa materials are easy to find and they aren’t that expensive either! By the end of the evening, you’ll both feel relaxed and invigorated, and glad that you opted for a cozy night in.
This date idea goes hand in hand with baking. If you want to start off the night cooking together – then you’ll have a home cooked meal and dessert. If your S.O. and you love to create dishes in the kitchen, then this is the date for you. Get a recipe or even whip something up off Pinterest. Be creative and work together – adding a bottle of wine and music can make the night even more relaxing. Not much $ going into this date except for yummy food that you already have at home, fun music, and quality time spent together.
