The season of love. It’s all around us, on commercials, in the stores, on social media. You could not escape it if you tried! So whether you like to go out or stay in, we have come up with some fun date night ideas for you and your significant other to do this Valentine’s Day. These are so good, they will work all year round. So make sure to pin this, so you can refer back to it when you need some date night inspiration.
To Keep Things Interesting
So, if you are anything like us, you are not great at planning date nights in advance and you and your significant other can never decide on what to do, so you end up staying home and watching Netflix. Although we love Netflix as much as everyone else, we think it is important to mix things up and actually date your significant other. That is why I created a date night jar. My husband and I each write down different date night ideas and put them in a jar. We then take turns picking from the jar every week. This keeps things fun and exciting. We also switch up the ideas each season so that the dates are relevant.
Date Night In
Sometimes a night in is exactly what you need, or the weather is a factor and you have no choice. If that is the case, then these date night ideas are for you! Just make sure the kiddos are in bed, or even better, spending the night at Grandma’s house, so you can have the alone time you need.
–Game Night! We love playing games, but don’t play them often enough. Break out your favorite board games or even play video games together. Spice it up a bit and create your own rules, such as the loser gives the winner a massage.
–Cook a meal together. This can be really fun if you choose a recipe you have never cooked before. Look through that cook book you have never used or browse ideas on Pinterest. Go shopping together for the ingredients and have fun learning together. Make sure to include dessert too!
–Movie Night! Who doesn’t love a good movie? One of our favorite things to do is open a bottle of wine, make some popcorn, and watch a good movie. To make it fun, you each choose a title or two you are interested in seeing, then pick out of a hat.
Date Night Out
We love a good night out! Sure you can choose the typical dinner and a movie, but if you want to spice things up a bit or try something new, then these date night ideas are for you!
–Movie and Picnic in the Park. There is something so romantic about packing up a picnic, laying out a blanket, and spending the night under the stars together. If your city isn’t playing any movies in the park, just have a picnic and enjoy each other’s company.
–See a Play or Musical. We know this can get pricey, so check out your local community theater, and see when they are offering free or low cost options.
–Go Dancing! There is nothing like dancing with someone you love. Call an Uber, find a new spot, and go out for drinks and dance the night away.
There you have it, date night ideas for you and your significant other this Valentine’s Day. Which is your favorite? We would love to hear from you in the comments, If you enjoyed this post, check out this one.
