Creative Date Night Idea’s

Cabin Fever creeping up on you? Time to get off the couch and try something new. As Valentine’s Day approaches, take the time to try activities with your partner or a group of friends instead of stressing out over the perfect gift.

Here’s a list of some easy idea date night ideas for spending some quality time with the people you care about.

1. Scavenger Hunt:

Where was your first kiss? Or your first date? As a fun Valentine’s Day gift, lead your significant other on a mini scavenger hunt to some of your favourite places in the city, or even in your home. Bring back old memories — and make new ones.

2. Pool time:

When you can’t travel to an exotic beach, bring the water to you. Try something different like hitting up an indoor water park or the community pool.

3. Karaoke:

Sing your heart out with your lover on Valentine’s Day. Just for kicks, do a duet!

4. Cooking class:

Many grocery stores and community colleges host nightly cooking classes for a great price. Usually, a great dinner is included in your ticket price, as well as a demonstration and some recipes to take home. Dinner and a show!

5. Skating:

No matter your skill level, a little fun and physical exercise is sure to bring a smile to your faces. Public skates at your local arena or outdoor rink are a great winter activity that requires almost no planning ahead…easy!

6. Enjoy a live show together:

Whether it’s one of your favorite bands or a local band you’ve been meaning to check out, a live show with great music is a fun way to spend the evening.

7. Art gallery:

Your local art gallery is likely open on Valentines Day and is a great idea for a low-key night out. Discover a local artist or learn about a certain art style.

8. Make a meal together:

If leaving the house sounds like too much work, planning and cooking a meal together can be great fun. Have a look through your cookbooks or look online for a recipe you’ve been meaning to try out.

Valentine’s Day is a great time to try something different. If dinner for two at your favorite restaurant is your tradition, go for it! If you’re looking for some new to try with your sweetheart, get out there and make some memories!
