It’s February, and if you haven’t planned your Valentine’s Day yet, it’s a great time to get a head start. If a fancy restaurant isn’t your thing, here are some original, just-as-sweet cute date Ideas to make your day together special.
Visit an Old Dating Spot
Do you remember where you first met?
…Finally got the nerve to propose?
The details sometimes slip through the cracks over time, but if you and your soulmate share a special “spot” that’s within driving distance, there’s nothing quite like strolling down memory lane.
Check Out the Stars
Head out to the country, where the skies are clear and there’s less light pollution. Pack a blanket to lay down on the ground, or a telescope if you already have one. Be sure to pick up a sky map or download an app on your phone so that you can act like you know the constellations like the back of your hand!
Pack a Picnic for Two
Picnics aren’t as popular as they used to be. But with nicer weather and spring just around the corner, it might be possible to work a picnic into your weekend plans. If sitting down on the ground isn’t quite your thing, then just bring a couple of folding chairs and a portable table (don’t forget the tablecloth!)
Take an Art Class Together
Painting can be relaxing — it can also be frustrating, if you’re artistically challenged — but learning a new technique with your favorite person can also be a lot of fun! You can even reserve the session for you and all of your favorite couples, to make it a fun night out.
Get Your Photo Made Together
When was the last time that both of you had a picture — a good one — taken with the two of you together? Not a selfie, an actual portrait. Pictures capture special moments and give your family precious treasures to hold onto for years to come.
Whether it’s sending flowers to her office, getting off early to cook his favorite meal from scratch, or whisking away for a weekend getaway, there’s something thrilling about the unexpected. It can be as simple as renting their favorite movie and having everyone’s favorite snacks laid out and ready for cuddling up on the couch. Who says that dates have to be expensive?
