5 Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

  1. Fishy Romance

Aquarium for romantic Valentine's Day date

When you think of romantic date nights, the aquarium might not be at the top of your list. However, the unique, calming ambiance and cool blue waters can be just the ticket for wooing that special someone. For her bouquet, choose calm colors filled with whites, creams, blue, and coral. Walking hand in hand through the exhibits allows for plenty of time to talk and reflect, whether it’s your first Valentine’s Day together or your 50th. The aquarium also provides built in activities to keep the date moving along naturally.

Bonus: If you live in Utah, you are in luck! The amazing Loveland Living Planet Aquarium is doing a very special Valentine’s Day date night with an adults-only night at the aquarium, including dinner! Check out the details here!

2. Cosmic Love

Stargazing for a Valentine's Day date

Pick her up and start the date off right with a beautiful bouquet wrapped in a metallic ribbon. If a visit Under the Sea doesn’t strike your fancy, check for events at your local planetarium or observatory. You may not be up for dancing across the nebula La La Land style, but there are still plenty of activities for a great date night. Staring into the great abyss of space with your honey or watching a star show while snuggling in a dark dome could be the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day.

3. Culinary Delights

Take a cooking class on Valentine's Day

Start the evening with a bouquet that incorporates fruit or berries. Then, head out to your cooking class! Many local culinary schools and kitchen stores offer special Valentine’s Day date nights where you get to work side by side with that special someone cooking up something delightful…then enjoy eating the fruits of your labors!

Bonus: If you live in Utah, be sure to check out Harmon’s Cooking School! With several locations, their state-of-the-art classes with world-renown chefs are delightful and it looks like almost all locations are doing some kind of Valentine’s Day date night special!

4. Romantic Trip around the World

Around the world day for Valentines Day

For the adventurous on-the-go couples who want a full day filled with variety, plan a Trip Around the World! Bring her a bouquet of Dutch tulips. Then consider starting the day with a Kung Fu or Hatha Yoga class. Visit a French bakery for breakfast or brunch. Walk through Ikea and see if you can get out in less than an hour (it’s a challenge). Have a real British high tea in the afternoon at a local hotel or imports store, or head to a Spanish restaurant for tapas. Go see a foreign film (only counts if there are subtitles) at the local indie theater. Then head to dinner at that Thai restaurant you have been wanting to try. If you are still rearing for more, find a gellato cafe and do as many samples as they will allow. My record is 15.

5. Classic Romance

A dozen roses on Valentine's Day

For a classic Valentine’s Day date, woo her with a dozen roses. Take her out in a white limousine to the fanciest restaurant in town followed by Romeo and Juliet or Cinderella at the ballet. Finish the night with a box of chocolates and you can’t go wrong.
