The 10 Best Things to Do on Valentine's Day With Your Loved One This Year

Updated: Feb 5

Whether you're coupled up or living the single life, we've got you covered.


With February 14 just around the corner, romantics everywhere start wondering the same thing: how can I make Valentine's Day special this year? Of course, there's the traditional candlelit dinner and typical chocolate gifts — but sometimes you may want to mix it up a little (or a lot) and ditch the usual "dinner and chocolates" for something a little more creative and one-of-a-kind. Luckily, we've rounded up some of the best things to do on Valentine's Day, so you and your beau don't have to settle for a typical and unmemorable date on Valentine`s. Who wouldn't want a truly unique night full of romance that you'll both remember for years to come?

So instead of stressing over V-Day plans this year, simply choose a fun activity from our list, and you and your sweetheart (or group of friends!) will be feeling the love in no time — without any of the pressure of an elaborate outing! And whether you decide to stay in for a movie marathon or venture into the great outdoors this February 14, you're of course guaranteed to have a good time — because you'll be spending the day together.


1. Take a Cooking Class


They say that food is the way to heart, so why not spend quality time preparing some together? A couple's cooking class is not only romantic, it's a great way to ditch the traditional dinner date for something more hands-on and fun.

2. Play at an Arcade


Channel your competitive side for a night full of street-racing games and Skee-ball at your local arcade — plus, you can totally win a cute teddy bear prize for your S.O. as a sweet Valentine's keepsake.

3. Have a Valentine's Bake-off



In true Great British Baking Show fashion, have a friendly competition in the kitchen to see who can make the best (and most festive) Valentine's Day desserts — extra points for anything heart-shaped, of course.

4. Visit a Conservatory or Botanical Garden




Go beyond the traditional red roses this year and show your loved one around a whole garden of beautiful flowers. It'll make for a great photo op and you'll get a nice, romantic nature walk with your sweetheart, too.

5. Have an Indoor Picnic




The weather doesn't have to stop you from planning the most romantic date of all — a picnic meal. Break out a checkered tablecloth and your best Valentine's Day recipes for a sweet indoor picnic date your S.O. won't forget.

6. Spend the Night in a Fancy Hotel Room



Make your Valentine’s Day special by checking into a local hotel, changing into a plush bathrobe, and dialing up some room service. Enjoy the night with your partner (or solo!), and feel free to order breakfast in bed the next morning.

7. Take a Dance Lesson Together



Skip the traditional dinner and get on your feet for a dance lesson with your partner. It’s a perfect way to get close and create a sweet memory.

8. Host a Wine and Cheese Night



We love this idea for couples or a group of friends. Have everyone bring their favorite bottle of wine, plus a cheese that pairs well, and let the good times roll.

10. Take a Relaxing Bath



Turn on the warm water, add in your favorite essential oil or bath bomb, and forget about your troubles. Oh, and don't skip the candles and music.
