Valentine’s Day Date Night Ideas

1. Candle Light Picnic
Candle light dinners are always romantic. If you want to stay in or you can’t get a babysitter than this is a great date idea. Order takeout from your favourite restaurant. Then dim the lights, set up a candle light picnic dinner on the floor with a blanket, pillows and your favourite wine and enjoy.

2. Paint Night
Sign up for a paint night as a couple. Sometimes you get stuck in a rut of going to the movies or going out for dinner. A paint night is a great way to do something special together and then you have something to take home with you as a souvenir of your date night.

3. Couples Massages
Couples massages are heaven. Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to book a couples massage, be it at the spa or even an at-home massage.

Bowling is a classic night out but often gets overlooked at a date night. It’s perfect as a Valentine’s Day date night. It’s fun, cheap and you throw in a little exercise.
