Valentine’s Day Date Ideas for Everyone

Valentines Day Date Ideas for Everyone

Hello friends! You always love my date night ideas, so I hope this one isn’t an exception. Here are my Valentine’s Day Date Ideas for everyone, non-married, married, and married with kids. Ladies, don’t worry the Galentine’s Day post is coming this Friday!

For the Non-married Couple:

For fun:

  • Go somewhere like Dave and Busters. You have food and games all in one place.
  • Do an escape room. This is the ultimate test of a relationship and Brad and I love them! You get to work together, be challenged, and experience something super fun together!
  • Recreate your first date or your first Valentine’s Day date. What better way to say “I love you” than to take a walk down memory lane.
  • Go ice skating.
  • Go bowling and make it fun and flirty by making it into a tournament.
  • Valentine’s Day group date. I think group dates are great when you’re in the dating stage. Get your friends together and go out and do something fun together.

Fancier:

  • Make reservations at a nice restaurant and get all dressed up for a night out
  • Progressive Dinner date: You get an appetizer at one restaurant, meal at a different restaurant, and then dessert at another restaurant. It’s fun and creative. You can dress this up or dress it down!
  • Get dressed up and go see a performance (opera, broadway, orchestra, etc)
  • Go to a dinner theatre.

For the Married Couple:

For fun:

  • Build a fort in your house and have a movie night in.
  • Play hooky. Call in to work and enjoy the day together.
  • Go bowling and make it a tournament, winner has to do something for the loser.
  • Make dinner together, but set up the table to look really nice. Candles and floral centerpieces. Easy fancy restaurant feel in the comfort of your home!
  • Make a date night bucket list. Write down all the date nights you love and want to do and put them all in one place. Next time you’re looking for a date night, they are all written down together.
  • Drive-in Movie! One of my favorite date nights!
  • Have a game night and you can make bets like the bowling tournament to keep it fun and flirty!
  • Do an escape room together. You get to work together, be challenged, and experience something super fun together!
  • Recreate your first date or your first Valentine’s Day date. What better way to say “I love you” than to take a walk down memory lane.
  • Go on a long walk together. This is where you can focus on communication, dreaming together, and just spending time unplugged.

Fancier:

  • Make reservations at a nice restaurant and get all dressed up for a night out
  • Get dressed up and go see a performance (opera, broadway, orchestra, etc)
  • Progressive Dinner date: You get an appetizer at one restaurant, meal at a different restaurant, and then dessert at another restaurant. It’s fun and creative. You can dress this up or dress it down, whatever you want!

More intimate:

  • 5 Sense Experience: You include something intimate that sparks each of the five senses in your night. Sight (lingerie, favorite lipstick, etc), Sound (your voice, a certain song, etc), Smell (perfume, candle, bubble bath, etc), Touch (self explanatory), and Taste (chocolates, his favorite dessert, whipped cream, etc). Be creative.
  • Gift your spouse “Intimate Coupons” that are redeemable whenever. You can put things like “Good for one back rub”, “Good for a kiss wherever you want”, etc. You know your spouse, be creative. Then use the coupons throughout your night, week, etc.
  • Turn your bedroom into a spa and pamper your spouse and get pampered by your spouse for the evening. You can find spa items for cheap at places like Walmart. Bubble bath, rose petals, oils, hand lotions, face masks, etc.
  • Book a hotel. This can be on actual Valentine’s Day night or over the weekend. Stay-cations are the best for getting away and recreating that intimacy with your spouse.

For the Married with Kids Couple:

  • Have a night out without the kids, get dressed up, even if you don’t go anywhere fancy.
  • Make dinner together. Get a babysitter, decorate the table, light some candles, and enjoy just being together.
  • Play hooky. Take the day off and spend the whole day together. You can include activities with the whole family and without kids.
  • Have a game night and you can make bets to keep it fun and flirty!
  • Recreate your favorite date night from when you didn’t have kids. Take a walk down memory lane and enjoy some special alone time together.
  • Get dressed up and go see a performance (orchestra, ballet, etc) together.
  • Make a Bucket List together. Write down your dream for your family, trips you want to take, and things you want to accomplish together.

More intimate:

  • 5 Sense Experience: You include something intimate that sparks each of the five senses in your night. Sight (lingerie, favorite lipstick, etc), Sound (your voice, a certain song, etc), Smell (perfume, candle, bubble bath, etc), Touch (self explanatory), and Taste (chocolates, his favorite dessert, whipped cream, etc). Be creative.
  • Go buy something intimate together. This creates excitement and anticipation for the night ahead!
  • Book a hotel. This can be on actual Valentine’s Day night or over the weekend. Stay-cations are the best for getting away and recreating that intimacy with your spouse.
  • Turn your bedroom into a spa for after the kids go to bed (or send them to grandparents house.) You can find spa items for cheap at places like Walmart. Bubble bath, rose petals, oils, hand lotions, face masks, etc.

I hope this was helpful and got your brain thinking of date ideas for you and your Valentine. Now it’s your turn, share your Valentine’s Day date night plans! This is my first married Valentines Day and I want to know what you’re doing!

  1. I’ve always wanted to do the progressive dinner thing! But I’ve heard that some people get tired by the entree, so they don’t go to a new restaurant for dessert, haha. Guess we’ll have to try it out and just go a little early!

    And we started a little tradition of making a fort in our living room around Valentine’s Day, but we haven’t done it in a couple years. Maybe we’ll have to bring it back this year!

    Great post, thanks for the ideas!

  2. Oh I just LOVE these ideas! I think I totally want to turn our dining room into a fancy, intimate restaurant this year. I’m all about staying in this year–It’s our first married valentine’s day, I don’t want to be around a lot of people! lol!

  3. Fun ideas! Dave and Busters would be a blast. Unfortunately I have to work on Valentine’s Day itself, so that night we are just grabbing a late dinner around 9:15. But we want to plan something fun for the weekend!

  4. These are fun ideas! My fiance’s birthday is the day before Valentine’s so we usually spend a couple days doing fun things to celebrate 🙂 Haha we’ve talked about doing an escape room but I’m such a boss that we’d have to get a room for just the two of us, otherwise I’d probably terrorize all the strangers locked in the room with us with my Type A tendencies

  5. I love that you have ideas for everyone regardless of what stage of life they may be in! That’s SO awesome especially if you have kids or don’t have kids, etc. I’ve always wanted to try an escape room and I think it would be an awesome date idea!
