10 DATE NIGHT IDEAS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and we're here to help you plan the perfect way to celebrate LOVE! Whether you plan on celebrating with your person, the whole fam, or just your BFF's, we're sharing 10 date night ideas to make it a special and memorable Valentine's (or Galentine's) Day! 

1. GO ON A FOODIE ADVENTURE

Take turns choosing different spots for appetizers, dinner, and dessert. Find new places to try and surprise each other with recommendations. Spend the night exploring your city and finding gems. Don't forget to jam out to our fave love songs along the way!

2. TAKE A CLASS TOGETHER

Is there something you’ve always wanted to try together? Look into a cooking class, salsa lesson, or something adventurous like rock climbing. Experience something new! Who knows, it might be your next hobby that you can enjoy together. (Planner Tip: Add your favorite pictures from the experience or even mementos to your Memory Keeping Photo Journal!)

 

3. GO TO AN ARCADE

Relive your favorite childhood memories and play all the classic arcade games. Keep it light, fun, and nostalgic! You can even keep your tokens or winning tickets in a cute and stylish pouch. Make it competitive and go out for ice cream after to celebrate the winner.

4. PLAN A PICNIC

Pack up your favorite snacks, beverages, or even make a Valentine’s Day charcuterie board. Go to your favorite spot with a view whether it’s the beach or a local park and enjoy each other’s company outside. Use the Notes And Things Skinny Classic Filler Paper to list out everything you’ll need to bring!

5. DATE NIGHT IN

Beat the Valentine’s Day crowd by planning a date night at home. Make it special by trying a recipe or choosing an old favorite. (Planner Tip: Create grocery shopping lists or write out all your recipes and keep them in one place with the Southern Farmhouse Classic Recipe Organizer.) Don't forget to pick up your favorite dessert and watch a movie or even get dressed up for the occasion to make it different from the everyday routine!

 

6. GIFT EXCHANGE

Go to your favorite store, split up, and choose 5 things for each other. 

Here are some examples of what to get:

  • Something they want.
  • Something they need.
  • Something comfy/cozy.
  • Their favorite snack.
  • An item that’s their favorite color.

  • 7. GO TO A BOOKSTORE

    This one's for all our bookworms. Take your partner to your local bookstore and choose a book for each other. This will give them an opportunity to choose something meaningful yet affordable! Annotate your book, call out your favorite quotes, and write out notes using the Kind Heart Brave Soul Sticky Note Set. When you’re done, you can swap books, read along, and see all the messages they’ve left for you.

     

    8. COUPLES SPA DAY

    Book a spa day for two! We often neglect our need for relaxation especially with the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Indulge in a nice massage and/or facial. Take time for yourselves and come out feeling refreshed together.

    9. FAMILY FUN

    Don't forget about your little Valentines too! Get the whole family to participate and plan some Valentine’s Day themed activities for you and the kids. Download and print our free love-inspired coloring sheets and get cozy while you color, make Valentine’s Day themed baked goods or snack on all your favorite sweet treats.

    10. DATE NIGHT WITH YOUR BESTIES

    Make it a Galentine's night with your BFFs! Invite your friends over for a craft night in using our new Happy Crafts CollectionGet comfy, cozy, and crafty in your PJs, grab your favorite snacks and watch some romcoms!
