Going out to dinner is a typical date on Valentine’s Day. Are you tired of typical yet? Stop scrambling for reservations last minute and create new memories this year and every year to come for Valentine’s Day. Going on an untraditional date will help change things up a bit and can create spice and passion in your relationship. If you are concerned about staying safe through the pandemic, I include dates that are Covid-19 friendly. Read through my blog of 12 creative date ideas for Valentine’s Day 2022.
1. TAKE A VIRTUAL MIXOLOGY CLASS
Let’s mix it up a bit. Do a quick google search for a virtual or in-person mixology class or event. If you are on a budget check out Youtube for a mixology course, or instruction on a drink you want to learn to make. There are plenty of fun cocktail classes that will make your Valentine’s Day special (and boozy).
2. DIY POETRY NIGHT
If you are artsy or want to explore more of your creative side with your partner try having a poetry slam in the comfort of your home. It can be a lot of pressure to express your feelings in front of a crowd of people, but with only you and your partner in the room it can be a great experience to learn more about yourselves and each other. If you have a hard time writing, maybe try reading excerpts from an erotic novel. 😉
3. VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME TOGETHER
Due to Covid-19 a lot of worksites, shelters, churches, and/or youth programs have lost volunteers. All variations of volunteering do not require contact with a large number of people. Find a small non-profit organization in need and dedicate your time together to helping others within the community. You and your partner may have an amazing experience together by being selfless and sharing your love with others who may need it more then you could possibly know.
4. TAKE A POTTERY CLASS
Pottery may not come easy for you and your partner but that does not mean you can not try. Have fun getting your hands messy with clay and create a beautiful masterpiece together.
5. TAKE A COOKING CLASS
Instead of trying to find dinner reservations during this busy holiday, take up a cooking class. This is a great date if you and your partner are not the best in the kitchen and could benefit from some new tips on cooking. Having fun creating and enjoying a new recipe while spending quality time together.
6. SHOP AT A FLEA MARKET
Did you recently move in with your partner? Or are you looking for something new to decorate the house with? Unique finds are always at the flea market. Going to a flea market will be an adventure! You may find that hidden gem you have been looking for that a typical store could not provide. Even if you do not make a large purchase, have fun looking at all the cool nicknacks at a local flea market.
7. RENT A CABIN
Some couples may be skeptical staying in a cabin especially if it is secluded in the woods. If this makes you uncomfortable try finding a cabin in an area that is more populated with people than trees. Sleeping in a cabin is a unique experience that you and your couple may adorn after the experience.
8. TAKE A DANCING CLASS
Do you and your partner have two left feet? Try taking a dance class. You may not be the best dancer but this could turn out to be a very silly and fun experience that leaves you both laughing all night long. If you are an experienced dancer try finding a more advanced class to challenge each other and possibly learn something new.
9. TAKE A TRAPEZE CLASS
Don’t worry beginner classes are available. I know every couple is not skilled with acrobat abilities. Depending on where you live, you may be able to find a trapeze class for you to try with your partner. Taking a trapeze class with your date is an idea very outside of the box. This date may be one to remember.
10. A NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM
When we think of visiting the museum it is typically during the morning or afternoon hours. But did you know some museums have late night hours? Search for a night event at a museum near you. After hours at a museum typically has an age requirement to be able to offer a better experience for adults. See what events a museum near you has to offer during after hours, you may be surprised.
11. ROLLER SKATING
Roller skating was huge in the 70s. Lets bring roller skating back in 2022! Take your partner to a roller rink and make a move out on that rink floor. Roller skating will get you both up and moving. It is not only a fun experience but also a very good workout.
12. TICKETS TO A COMEDY SHOW
Need a good laugh? Take your date to a comedy show. You may luck up and have a great comedian in your town around Valentine’s Day. If not, don’t worry, give local comedians a shot. I went to a comedy show with all local comedians, every name on the line up were names I did not recognize so I did not have high expectations. After the show, I was actually impressed at how funny a majority of them were. None of them compared to Kevin Hart or Mike Epps but it was a good show that left us talking and wanting to come back for more.
