The countdown is on, Valentine’s day is only a day to go!
Having trouble coming up with date ideas? Don’t worry I’ve got you covered with 20 date ideas to suit all budgets!
- Romantic Picnic
Pack a romantic picnic and head to your favourite beach or park. Bonus points if you bring pillows to lounge on and a bunch of flowers.
- Waterfall Hunting
(A personal favourite). Research your area for any good waterfalls close by. Spend the day exploring the falls and relaxing in the cool fresh water. Could even include a romantic picnic!
Get in touch with nature and go for a romantic hike. A mountain climb might be tough but the view at the end is always worth it!
- Candle Lit Dinner
Enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner out or if that isn’t in the budget a home cooked meal can be just as special, if not more!
- Movie Date
Have a movie marathon of your favourite movies. Step it up a notch by letting out your inner kid and building your own fort to watch it in!
- Spa Date
A relaxing day at the spa enjoying couples massages followed by a nice soak in the hot tub. If a professional spa service isn’t in the cards take turns giving each other massages and face masks. You can also include a romantic bath. For an ultimate at-home spa experience add a handful of Epsom salts, your favourite essential oil, sprinkle around some flower petals, create a relaxing playlist and light some candles.
- Helicopter Ride
Everything looks different from above. Take your partner on a romantic helicopter flight. A lot of places will offer special romantic packages which can include a glass of bubbly and chocolate coated strawberries in the bunker before take off.
- Scuba Dive
Love the ocean? Is your partner’s favourite movie Ariel? Explore a whole new world and get up close and personal with creatures of the sea. This will be a date she won’t forget!
- Horse Riding Tour
Every little girl dreams of her knight in shining armour riding in and sweeping her off her feet. Take her horse riding and make this dream come true!
- Go Camping
Find a new camping spot or go to an old favourite. Have fun around the campfire, star gaze, float down the river, go for a hike and spend some quality time together away from technology.
- Go Snorkeling
A cheaper alliterative to scuba diving but just as good!
- Watch The Sunrise Together
Wake up early, pack a nice breakfast and watch the sunrise together. Classic.
- Themed Dinner and Movie Date
Does your partner has a dream vacation spot but can’t afford to go there just yet? Bring the country to them by having a themed dinner. Make the local cuisine, decorate the room in the countries style and have local music playing in the background, follow this with a movie or documentary set in the area.
- A Second First Date
Rewind the clock and step back in time to relive your first date, try to include as many of the same details as possible! Talk about romantic!
- Go To A Comedy Show
Include this after a nice dinner out. Everyone loves a good laugh!
- Romantic Getaway
Book a romantic hotel or cabin in an area you’ve been waiting to visit. Make it adventure packed or a relaxing weekend away.
- Winery Tour
Dress up in your favourite outfit and spend the day wandering around local wineries. Step it up a notch by hiring a private driver, not only does this add style and also gets you home safely.
- Couples Dance Class
One thing you will notice about old movies is their dates always involve dancing. Take your partner for couples dance lessons and have some fun!
- Hot Air Ballooning
Hot air ballooning feels like you’re floating in the clouds. Go early in the morning to watch the sunrise while enjoying a champagne breakfast high in the sky.
- Cocktail Night
Have some fun at home by having your own cocktail making night. Get creative and see if you come up with any new recipes or revamp a classic with a twist.
