Day 8: Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

Who knows what they’re doing to celebrate Valentine’s Day? If you’re like me, you’ve had your plan in place for a good few months now, but in case there are any last minute planners out there, here are a few ideas to help you plan! {Single? No problem! All of these ideas would be so much fun with a bunch of girlfriends!}

1- Go ice skating! For those of you lucky enough to live in areas where there are outdoor skating rinks, take advantage of them! {I promised G if we’re ever back in WI during winter time, we are absolutely going skating!} Afterwards, stop for hot chocolate and dessert. Or, set up a hot chocolate bar and bake something together.

2- Try a new restaurant- there’s no time like the present to try that restaurant that you’re wishing you’ve already eaten at. Call for a reservation now, if you’re lucky they’ll still have a spot! If you live in Nashville, I’m dying to try Rolf & Daughters in the next couple weeks!

3- Take a cooking class! This is actually what G and I are doing at Whole Foods. I know that Viking also offers a wide variety of classes that had delicious sounding menus!


4- Wanting to splurge? Plan a getaway weekend! Pick somewhere drivable and that’s new for both of you!


5- Paint pottery. Mugs, plates, teapots, and more! A fun and low-key way to spend the holiday.


6- In Nashville, paint and wine places are popping up all over the place! Drinking wine while painting {or painting while drinking} sounds like fun to me! {This also makes for a great girls night!}


7- Build a blanket fort! In addition, make a scrumptious dinner at home and get a movie to watch. Cozy, comfy, and you can wear your PJs ALL night! Sign me up! {This is actually what G and I did last year. Fun fact, our anniversary is 2/12, so we had JUST started dating when Valentine’s Day rolled around!}

8- Find a local vineyard. Most offer wine tastings. Paired with dinner out after? Perfection!


What are you and your Valentine up to this year?! Comment below!
