11 Valentine’s Day Ideas To Make It Special

Valentine’s Day is around the corner which means it is either time to book something for you and your partner or leave it too late so you have to cook at home. Luckily for you, there are many things you can do on date night. Whether you are on a low or a high budget, there is something for everyone. These date nights are the perfect time to show your partner love with their love language.

1. Late Night Cinema

There is something very romantic and special about the cinema which is why it makes it the perfect date for Valentine’s Day. Picking a boutique cinema for a date is a great idea for Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is there to make normal dates special so instead of going to the usual cinema, pick a cinema which is far more luxurious. This cinema should also offer food as well as alcohol if you want to have a drop of alcohol during your movie.

2. Stargaze Through The Night

There is nothing more romantic than stargazing through the evening and the best part about this date is that it is free. All you need to do is go to a secluded area where there is very little light pollution. Go to the top of the hill and sit with your partner as you watch the stars above you. Just make sure you wrap up well as the weather is still relatively cold so put on your big coat. You could also drive to the top of the hill and put away your sunroof on your car if you have one.

3. Go To A Jazz Bar

If you want to go back in time and enjoy a romantic evening, visiting a jazz bar is another great date idea. Jazz bars tend to offer bar snacks and cocktails which makes it the perfect place to be on Valentine’s Day. Jazz music has a soothing sound and sounds great in a small speak-easy bar.

4. A Special Hike To A Place You Have Always Wanted To Visit

There are many things you can do on Valentine’s Day but if hiking is something you both love to do, this is the perfect date for you. However, don’t pick a place that you have been to before. Pick a spot which you have both been talking about for months. A place which requires you to drive a long distance and it is an iconic location which is well-known for hikers.

5. A Nice Bed and Breakfast

Another great date night for Valentine’s Day is to spend it away from your home. Consider booking a bed and breakfast which isn’t too far from your hometown. A place that is relatively new to you both and has a romantic environment. The Cotswolds is one of those places you can visit in the UK which has the perfect environment.

6. Recreate Your First Date

You can get creative with the toppings and base, choosing between a tomato or BBQ base. You can also have a Mexican night, enjoying some tacos or even enchiladas. The world is your oyster when it comes to picking a theme. To add more to it, you can read each other cute love quotes.
