Looking for a romantic way to spend this Valentine’s Day with your guy?
We’ve got some beautiful ways for you to spend it and bring sparks in to your day!
Make the perfect picnic (at home!)
Sometimes the most romantic date idea is as close as your own living room!
Throw some logs on the fire, spread a blanket on your living room rug, and hunker down for a romantic dinner for two.
Go to Paris!
What could be more romantic than Paris? Spring a surprise trip on your date and head to the City of Light. Stroll along the Seine, kiss atop the Eiffel Tower and get in touch with your inner Parisian.
Bring Paris to you!
Can’t quite afford a hop across the pond? Don’t despair!
Dust off your copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, queue up some Édith Piaf or classic French cinema, scatter a few well-placed photos of Parisian landmarks around la maison, and get ready to wine and dine your sweetie Paris-style.
Take the plunge!
No, not that plunge!
Scope out a romantic river, lake, quarry or after-hours pool and sneak your honey in for a late-night swim. Clothing optional!
Do the opposite
Valentine’s Day calls for something a bit out of the ordinary. Suburbanites, plan a night out in the city. City dwellers, head to the countryside for a romantic night away or day trip.
Whether you’re kicking it into high gear with a night on the town or slowing things down with a trip to the country—the change of pace will do wonders for you and your romance.
Take in the scenery with a winter hike. Remember to bring along a thermos of cocoa (or spiked cider) to keep the chill away.
Better yet, make a night of it. Pitch your tent and snuggle up for a romantic evening of camping.
Revisit old haunts
There’s nothing like Valentine’s Day to incite a little nostalgia. Return to the site of your first date, where you first met, or the spot where you proposed.
Take your sweetie on a tour to visit romantic landmarks of years past. Perhaps you’ll find a new one along the way.
Laughter releases endorphins, the body’s feel-good chemicals. So what better way to give your date a jumpstart than by taking in a comedy show?
