4 Creative Date Ideas
It can be tough to think of date ideas for Valentine’s Day that are unique, meaningful, but not super corny, so we curated a few of our favorites, such as crafting an original song that brings your love story to life.
Re-creating your first date
Think back to the beginning. No matter how long you’ve been together, looking back at your first date never fails to put a smile on your face. Maybe it went just as planned. Maybe there was some awkwardness in the air. Whatever the case, recreating the first date this Valentine’s Day is a great way to rekindle your love story. Try your best to recreate it exactly: what did you wear, what did you do, where’d you go, what song was playing? More and more this is becoming a popular date idea among all age groups. ABC recently broadcasted a story about a couple celebrating their 73rd anniversary by fully recreating their first date.
Dancing in the moonlight
This Valentine’s day, get out and dance. Whether that means going to see your favorite artist perform live, or simply enjoying an intimate wine night at home while slow dancing in the living room, there is something timelessly romantic about letting yourself go to music. As E-Harmony says, “The bigger picture here is what dance can do for you healthwise – from your confidence levels to physical benefits. Your attraction factor increases immeasurably from exercise, due to improvements in both those areas”
Karaoke: Sing this all together
Valentine’s Day is all about the two of you, and crooning a duet of “Don’t Stop Believing” is the perfect way to put your love in the limelight. Hopping on stage to indulge in a bit of lighthearted karaoke is a great way to spark some laughter in your relationship. On Marie Claire’s list of creative date ideas, they suggest, “Leave behind the friend group and head to the karaoke bar with just you and the boo.” The point isn’t to be good at singing: it’s to let loose with the one you love while belting out your favorite songs.
Hot air balloon: Tonight we fly
Spend the day in the clouds. Reminisce about the journey the two of you have been through while admiring the journey you take in the air. There are few date ideas as romantic as watching the sunset with the person you love while thousands of feet in the air. Men’s Fitness has it on their list of cliché Valentine’s day date ideas that are totally worth it. Although it may be a stereotypical “favorite” as far as romantic date ideas go, the experience you’ll share will be completely unique and one you’ll never forget.
Whatever you decide to do this Valentine’s Day, end your night listening to an original song that brings your love story to life. An original song for your original date, a song that you can dance to, a song you can sing along to, a song to represent the journey you’ve been on together — nothing says “I love you” quite like custom music.
