With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’ve been day-dreaming of the perfect way to celebrate. If you’re anything like us, you may or may not have blown your date night budget on some accessories and shoes just for the occasion. All dressed up and no where to go is a problem so we’ve put together a list of ideas you can use to get your creative juices flowing. Use these ideas as they are, or put a little money behind them to make them a holiday worth remembering.
Red Hot Romance Date Ideas: Recreate your First Date
We know this make take you back, but whether it was three months ago or fifteen years – there is something to be said for nostalgia. Why not make the meal you had on your first date or buy the ingredients for the cocktails you sipped on all night long. Did you go to the movies on your first date?Pop the film you watch in the DVD (or VCR) and get a little cozy on the couch. Reminiscing is always a fun way to show you care and have loved the times you’ve grown together.
Red Hot Romance Date Ideas: Take it Outdoors
Live in the city, there are plenty of things you can do to make the magic fly on Valentine’s Day. Why not try ice-skating or an evening snowshoe. If it involves twinkle lights, a hot drink (bring your own Irish cream for spiking) and hand holding it is sure to bring a smile to your rosy cheeks.
If that’s not your thing, why not go on a walking tour of your own city. Stop in at a handful of your favourite places just for a drink, or dare we say it, dessert. May we even suggest stopping and taking the time to read those plaques mounted on the buildings that explain the cities historic past, and the best part is it’s a free way to learn something new together.
Red Hot Romance Date Ideas: Stay at Home Date Night
Ah, we know – you’ve heard this a million times before. However, date nights at home don’t have to be boring. Why not try body painting or turn your favourite board game into an ‘adults only’ version. I mean, of course there is always the at home living room picnic that you can create with your favourite snacks, but why not go one step further. Is your partner obsessed with going to France – then why not bring Paris to them? And we aren’t just talking about food and wine – but turn an old ladder into the Eiffel tower with some fairy lights, find a classic French movie and dress the part!
Red Hot Romance Date Ideas: Consult with Deal-Sites for Ideas
If you’re short on cash, why not let a major site like Groupon and SocialShopper help you out. You won’t struggle to find businesses promoting great, unique offers that you could easily turn into a date night of your choosing. Whether it’s a romantic couples massage, a dinner out, a class together or a tour you’re sure to find a great idea while staying on budget. Just be sure to look into this in advance, as things like this will book up!
