Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? This holiday can be very stressful for couples. There are so many expectations to have the perfect day, and it can be almost as stressful as a wedding! Celebrating Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be so stressful. The most important part of the holiday is to celebrate the love or companionship you both share.
The entire purpose of dates is to connect and engage with each other as a couple. You want to get to know your partner, or simply reconnect with each other after a stressful week. There are so many different date ideas out there. So get out of the dinner and a movie rut! There are dozens of new experiences you can share together, and yes, those count as dates!
Below are some unconventional ideas for Valentine’s Day (or even a normal date night).
1. Wine or Beer Tasting
Whether you open a couple of bottles at home or visit a winery/brewery, you can enjoy a couple glasses together while conversation flows – pun intended! Trying new things and expanding your horizons is one of the best things you can do together as a couple. And you can always purchase a bottle or two of your favorite brews and relive the experience later in the year.
Girls, you may have to drag your fellows to this one! Many dance studios offer specials for newcomers or even a three-class package so you can dip your toes in, so to speak! From the sexy Tango to the romantic Waltz, entangle yourself with your partner and dance the night away. Dancing together encourages an entire new level of communication, which will help you connect even more as a couple.
3. Ice Skating or Roller Skating
Blow off some steam or pent up energy from the long winter and stretch out your muscles. Strap on some skates and hit the ice rink or the roller rink to discover a forgotten joy. Has one or both of you never skated before? That is even better! Laugh together as you fall and stumble across the ice/floor, and then grab some hot chocolate or coffee as you nurse your new bruises. After all, live laugh love!
4. Junk Food Dinner Date
Are you tired and don’t feel like going out or spending hours cooking a fancy meal? Embrace it instead! Gather your favorite snacks and junk food together and create an entire meal based off those foods! Chocolate cake and onion rings? Why not! This is your date night. Let go of society’s expectations and make up your own rules – and your own menu!
5. Cooking or Craft Class
Are you ready to learn a new skill? Sign up for a cooking class, sewing class, woodworking class, and so much more! Have an open mind and enjoy yourselves. There are so many hobbies in the world, and many hobby and craft stores offer beginner classes so you can learn all there is to know about the craft without investing a lot of money. Even if you decide that it’s ultimately not for you, that’s OK! You still had fun and learned something new.
