5 Out-Of-The-Ordinary Things to Do for Valentine’s Day


In case you have been failing to read the signals your girlfriend has been sending you lately, Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and the time you have to prepare quickly slipping by. However the question ‘What are the most romantic things to do for valentine’s day?’ does not have a one-size fits all answer.

Your plans will depend on the amount of time you have been seeing each other, and the level of commitment in your relationship. If you are out of ideas, try one of these five original approaches to this all important holiday, given the duration and intensity of your relationship.

1. Cook for Your Valentine

If you have established that you like her, and she likes you, but have established little beyond that, it can be difficult to plan the first few dates. That is to say nothing of a major holiday. If you are looking to turn up the heat and grow a little closer, a great move is to invite her over for a home cooked valentine’s meal. This gives her an opportunity to see where you live (after you have spruced up, of course) and allows you the opportunity to show off your cooking skills.

2. Weekend Getaway

One fail-safe way to make sure that you and your loved one have a truly romantic holiday is to simply get out of town for the weekend. Reserve a room at a bed and breakfast in a town you have never visited, but have always wanted to explore, and be sure to get out and see the sights.

3. Winery Tour

Wine has long been a staple Valentine’s Day beverage to loosen you up and put you in the mood. This holiday, you and your honey can indulge in this ancient intoxicant while learning more about the process of making wine, and taking in some of the incredible wine country views. Learning how to pair wine with your favorite foods will help the two of you create the perfect Valentine’s day meal, complete with complimentary beverages.

4. Dinner Theater

Taking your loved one out for a Valentine’s day dinner is a classic tradition, but let’s face it. It has been done time and again. You can spice it up however, by planning your dining experience to include live entertainment, for instance a dinner theater show. Whether you visit a Medieval renaissance exhibit to see gallant knights on horseback and eat with your hands, or you visit a mystery dinner theater for a spooky tale to compliment your meal.

5. Spa Day

If you have been dating for a while, you and your lover have grown accustomed to each other, and may benefit from a holiday outing that allows you to be pampered and relaxed away from your regular routine. Plus, it is well known that relaxing and loosening the tension in your body is a proven way to get your endorphins flowing and put you and your date in the mood!
