When most people think about planning a memorable Valentines Day date, they usually envision a romantic, candlelit dinner at a beautiful restaurant, complete with a bouquet of red roses, a bottle of wine, and a box of chocolates. While this is always a lovely way to spend Valentines Day, it’s definitely not the most original way to celebrate.
To add a little spice to your love life this year, wouldn’t it be enjoyable to share this special day by doing an activity you both love? To inspire you to change things, featured here are 5 fun Valentines Day date ideas (plus the outfits to wear for each type of outing).
Valentines Day Date Ideas
Ice Skating: Since most places are still covered in snow during this time of year, heading to a nearby ice skating rink with your sweetheart is a fun (and inexpensive) way to enjoy the day. To dress for the occasion, opt for skinny jeans, a fitted cashmere sweater, a faux fur vest, and leather gloves. Not only will you stay warm and cozy, you’ll also be cuddly cute in this type of Valentines Day date outfit.
Wine Tasting: If your idea of the perfect Valentines Day date is relaxing with your loved one, head to a local winery for a wine tasting. Learning together is a great way to keep your relationship mentally stimulating. Wine tasting classes are not only enjoyable, they also give you the opportunity to learn how wine is grown and the differences in varietals. When wine tasting, a classic sheath dress, paired with opaque tights, knee-high boots, and a cropped jacket looks elegant and stylish.
Painting Class: Getting your creative juices flowing together (via a painting class) is a wonderful way to enjoy a Valentines Day date with your beau. Since this type of date can easily get messy, it’s best to stick with jeans, a casual t-shirt, comfy booties, and a glamorous statement necklace (to add pizazz to your outfit).
Cooking at Home: Are you and your favorite guy both foodies? If you relish the idea of trying out new recipes, opt for an evening in for your Valentines Day date night. Cooking at home is a great way add spice to those intimate moments with one another by heating things up in the kitchen. For this type of Valentines Day date, go for the less-is-more look with a figure-flattering wrap dress (which can easily be un-wrapped, wink wink), sweet ballet flats, and beautiful lingerie underneath.
Attending a Sporting Event: Last, but certainly not least, is the idea of kicking back with your man at a sporting event (like a heart-pumping ice hockey game or the fan-favorite AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Golf Tournament). Not only will watching an exhilarating game get your guy all revved up (for those late night activities you’ll both enjoy), he’ll also see you as the coolest gal he knows. To look the part, opt for sexy skinny jeans, easy-to-walk-in boots, a casual sweater, and a sporty puffer vest (to keep you warm).
