Valentine's Day is that one special time in the year when you get to show your loved one just how much they mean to you. But trying to cram all your feelings into one heartfelt gift or romantic gesture can quickly turn into a disaster – we’ve all been there! If you’re all out of ideas and tired of buying into Valentine’s Day cliches and overpriced gifts, sometimes a simple and thoughtful idea is all you need to create an unforgettable night. We’ve come up with a few unique date ideas that’ll undoubtedly leave a lasting impression.
1. Turn up the heat with a romantic dinner
We all know that the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach! So, why not put your cooking skills to the test with a romantic dinner for two. Whether perfecting your partner’s favourite meal or trying your hand at fine dining, a home-cooked meal is a great way to turn up the heat. Don’t forget to set the mood with a few scented candles, fairy lights, and a playlist of timeless love songs.
2. Get your heart racing in the great outdoors
Nothing gets the heart pumping quite like an adventure in the great outdoors. Pack a picnic, fasten your hiking boots and explore the beautiful British countryside. If your partner is an adrenaline junkie, take the opportunity to tick off a crazy bucket list activity together like skydiving, hot air ballooning or bungee jumping for a thrill, you can also head to a nearby nature reserve and simply soak up the natural scenery.
3. Watch the sunset from a secluded spot
Although cliched, watching the sunset will never get old! Taking your date to a secret spot and admiring the sunset is a sure way to melt your partner’s heart. Stock up on some of their favourite snacks, get a bottle of bubbly and spread out a blanket somewhere special to watch the sun disappear into the horizon. If you want to make it extra special, you could also blindfold them and unveil the surprise date on arrival!
4. Arrange a romantic movie marathon
If you’re looking for a cosy, covid-friendly night-in, then a romantic movie marathon is the way to go! Create a list of your partner’s favourite romantic movies and transform your living room into a comfy retreat filled with blankets and pillows. Set the ambience with a few scented candles and remember to stock up on loads of comfort food and tissues, especially if it’s a tearjerker!
5. Picnic in a peaceful park
While many couples spend hundreds of pounds at fine-dining restaurants, sometimes the best Valentine’s date is a low-key and relaxing picnic in your favourite park. Find a quiet spot beside a lake or a beautiful garden, bring along a fun board game and simply enjoy each other's company with this thoughtful date.
