20 Best Things to Do on Valentine’s Day for the Ultimate Date Night

valentine's day ideas

Whether you and your significant other have been together for years or just a little while, we’d like to remind you that the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift is time spent together—and that couples of all types should consider doing an out-of-the-box activity on February 14. Here, we’ve rounded up the absolute best things to do on Valentine’s Day, from Valentine’s Day getaways you can take with your partner to fun activities that you don’t normally do with one another.

Truthfully, no matter what you and your beau decide to do, you’ll both have the best time—because you’re spending the day with each other. But heading to one of the most romantic hotels in the country certainly wouldn’t hurt. And even if you’re short on cash this year, there are tons of ways to make February 14 extra special. You could, for instance, opt for a thoughtful breakfast in bed experience or a simple, at-home Valentine’s Day dinner for two. Or maybe you’d prefer to just cozy up together in your winter finest and have a romantic Valentine’s Day movie marathon (just don’t forget the popcorn!).

 

1. Take a hike.

Even if it’s cold where you live, taking a scenic hike is a great way to unplug and unwind this Valentine’s Day. Maybe there’s a favourite hiking spot where you live, or you might want to try going somewhere new. Either way, you’re bound to have a fun time since you’re in great company.

 

2. Set up a waffle bar.

Is breakfast your favourite meal to eat together? Build the waffles of your dreams by setting up a DIY waffle bar. All you need is some waffle batter, a waffle maker, and all the toppings your hearts desire. You might take a fruity route with fresh berries and whipped cream, or maybe even a savoury waffle by frying up some chicken to put on top.

 

3. Go ballroom dancing.

For the ultimate romantic night, try your hand at ballroom dancing. If you’re newbies, there are classes you can sign up for, as well as groups that meet to show you the ropes. Before you know it, you’ll both be gliding along the dance floor.

 

4. Have a Parisian date night.

Pretend like you’re in the City of Love this Valentine’s Day. Make sweet (or savoury!) crepes, share a bottle of wine, and put on some romantic music to set the tone.

 

5. Play tourist in your own town.

Is there a landmark in your town that you’ve always wanted to visit? Or a museum you’ve never seen? Become tourists in your own home and finally check off one or two of those bucket list items you keep putting off. Get into the role by snapping tons of pictures throughout the day.

 

6. Make a scrapbook of your relationship.

Even partners who aren’t so into crafts will get a kick out of this fun activity. Gather up photos of your relationship, old ticket stubs, and meaningful receipts, and make a beautiful book that you’ll both treasure!

 

7. Head to a yoga class.

Yoga isn’t just good for the body—it could be good for your relationship too! Stretch your limbs while enjoying time together out of the house.

 

8. Take a pottery lesson.

What’s more romantic than a unique activity that you wouldn’t do on any other day of the year? We love the idea of heading to your local pottery studio for an afternoon of art, creativity, and fun.

 

9. Bake something delicious.

Yes, a home-cooked meal is one option for Valentine’s Day. But have you ever considered ordering in…and simply making dessert together? Baking is a great way to spend more time with your significant other while having a blast in the kitchen.

 

11. Go for a drive.

No destination? No problem. All you need for this fun Valentine’s Day activity is a sense of adventure and a car! You’ll both get out of your comfort zones while you explore new terrain. There’s no telling what you might stumble across. Alternatively, if both you and your partner are looking for some challenge, why not trying to off-road while enjoying the beauty of Fraser Island?

 

11. Eat breakfast in bed.

Whip up a delicious breakfast—or brunch—spread on Valentine’s Day and enjoy it lounging in your bed. It will be a nice change of pace from the usual hustle and bustle in the mornings.

 

12. Enjoy a wine and chocolate tasting.

Wine and chocolate: Both delicious on their own, but even better together!

 

13. Craft something together.

Whether you take a painting class or just make some DIY Valentine’s Day crafts at home, it will be special to make an actual item and memories to last a lifetime.

 

14. Host a game night.

Invite over a few couples for an evening filled with competitive fun. You’ll have a blast teaming up with your sweetie to win some Valentine’s Day games!

 

15. Recreate your first date.

Take things way back to where you first started falling for each other with a second take at your first date. If your memory is super sharp, you could even order the same food and drinks as that one memorable night.

 

16. Take a trip

Take a day or even an entire weekend and venture to a destination neither of you have been before. You’ll get out of your comfort zone and have a fabulous time doing it! If we may give you an idea, what about the Grand Canyon?

 

17. Unwind at a spa.

Treat yourself to the ultimate relaxation experience by booking a couples massage, skin therapies—or any other treatment of your choice—at a local spa. Everyone loves to be pampered!

 

18. Cook dinner together.

A special home-cooked meal can be so much more romantic than going out to eat at a super busy restaurant. Even if one of you doesn’t have chef-worthy skills, you can still make a memorable dinner you’ll both enjoy.

 

19. Have a romantic movie marathon.

Grab the popcorn and settle in on the couch for an evening filled with your favourite rom-coms.

 

20. Exchange heartfelt gifts.

No, February 14 doesn’t have to be all about presents, but it is nice to give—and receive—a little token of affection. Consider purchasing an item your loved one has always wanted, DIYing something special, or even just gifting a DIY Valentine’s Day card.

 

Are you ready to make the best out of this Valentine’s Day with your partner? We hope that some of these ideas can help make the day wonderful for both of you.
