Valentine’s Day 2016: Five Ultimate Date Night Ideas
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, almost everyone is racking their brains to come up with a unique and special idea to surprise their partners. For couples who have spent more than 5 or 6 years together, the need to spice things up and do something completely out of the ordinary is extremely important for igniting that spark in their romance that brought them together in the first place.
Stop thinking about picking out nicely cut roses from your local florist, or getting an enormous teddy bear for your girlfriend; they are simply obsolete. Think out of the box. Think about something adventurous, something different that truly compliments the festive spirit of Valentine’s Day.
Here are some exciting date night ideas to help you sizzle things up this Valentine’s.
1. Book at table for two…. At home!
Why go out, drive all the way to a fancy restaurant, eat without any privacy and get drunk only to drive back all the way home feeling tired and worn out? This Valentine’s Day, organize your own exclusive and special date night at home. Plan an exotic and delicious menu, and cook the meal together using a comprehensive recipe for guidance.
You can locate your table anywhere you want to, in the garden, on the terrace or in the dining room. Decorate the table and beautifully adorn it with candles to complete the look, and then, dress up for a hot date with your partner. You both can share some quality time, a cozy meal and nice bottle of wine!
2. Be adventurous and go camping!
If your partner is outdoorsy and sportive, this will be a great surprise for them! You can both can enjoy a nice, long hike up the mountains and camp there for a romantic and dreamy night under the stars. If you want to make it simpler, you both can just camp in your backyard, enjoy some delicious grilled burgers, and chilled beer.
3. Plan a brief, romantic getaway:
It would be a great idea to check into a resort next to the beach, or hit the slopes to enjoy some exciting snowboarding and skiing as the slopes open for tourists in February.
If traveling is not something that your schedule or budget allows, you can simply check into a hotel suite and enjoy some of the amazing Valentine’s Day packages that are being offered at every hotel. You both can indulge in binge movie-watching, order the room service every ten minutes and go crazy on the mini-bar!
4. A cultural touch:
If your partner is incredibly classy and sophisticated and has a big thing for literature and art, you must consider delighting them with surprise tickets to the theatre, the opera, or a new art exhibition. Your partner will not only enjoy immensely, but he/she will also be touched that you appreciate and share their interests.
5. Dance Away the Night!
If you and your partner have been married for over 6 years, and you both just can’t seem to organize a date night between the kids and your heavy schedules, this one’s for you! It’s time to hire a nanny for the night, put on your best dress, and hit the loudest and trendiest club to dance the night away in the arms of your partner.
