Valentine’s Day is a short time away. Have you planned something special for your Valentine? If you haven’t, there is still time! Don’t just choose the same old dinner and a movie. Why not try something unique and fun? Here are 5 ideas for procrastinators to pull off just in time for Valentine’s Day… we won’t tell.
Stargazing is a romantic date you can take any day of the year. Whether you gaze at the sky from a vehicle or by grabbing some blankets and laying on the ground, you’re sure to have a good time escaping life for a little while. Of course, you’ll have to find your way from the city lights, but once you do the rest of the work can be done all by itself. Look for constellations and even bright planets showing up in the night sky. There is no requirement to be a good stargazer. There are many apps to download that will help you impress your date if you feel so inclined. Grab some wine, a blanket or two, and go old school for the night.
Recreate Your First Date
On the scale of romantic gestures, recreating your first date might just be one at the very top. This requires a bit of good memory and a little bit of work to make it happen, but you can do it! Your date will be incredibly impressed, and it will be a romantic walk down memory lane. Take it up a notch more by adding a little something new to the date like a romantic gift. Recreating a very important day in your relationship may seem like a bit of work, but it will be well worth the effort!
Host a Themed Dinner and a Movie Night
If you’re not interested in going out into the cold for Valentine’s Day, host a movie night at home. Pick a movie with a theme and cook dinner around it. For example, what is better than watching Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck fall in love while eating a giant plate of pasta? Your date will appreciate the thought that went into the pairing and the effort it took to make it. Plus, this is a chance to cook together and perhaps experience a movie you haven’t seen before!
Spend the Night at a Museum
You’ll often find museums stay open late for special events, and when they do, they make it worth your while. Museums may be free or have special offerings like a tour for two. They will sweeten the deal with live music, chocolates, and adult beverages. The Phoenix Art Museum, for example, is offering special features for both lovers and even skeptics of Valentine’s Day. Their free night includes movie showings, photo booths, and a bar. See what museums near you are having and take advantage of an entire date planned by someone else!
Attend a Cooking Class
This one is for the very last-minute planners. If you’re not very good in the kitchen and the restaurant reservations are already filled up, take a chance on a last-minute cooking class! Together you’ll learn how to make something delicious meanwhile improving your skills in the kitchen. It will make memories and you’ll (hopefully) be able to recreate the meal down the line.
Now you have no excuse not to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a special way with your significant other. There is still plenty of time to plan something you’re both bound to love.
