5 Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and maybe you are running out of time thinking what is the best date you can give to your spouse/partner. But planning a romantic date does not have to cost a lot of money. Don’t worry if you were too busy this year to make a plan. Here are some date ideas that are affordable and can be executed last minute, but are still very thoughtful and romantic.

Create Something Together

A really great way to bond together and share a romantic moment is to create something together. A scrapbook is one really great idea. Before Valentine’s Day, go online to a photo printing website and order a bunch of pictures of you two throughout the years. On Valentine’s Day, light some candles, put on some romantic music, pour some wine, and tell your sweetie that you want to create a memory book together. You can also go through pictures, concert and movie tickets, etc. and pick out your favorites.

Make a Romantic Meal at Home

You can easily create romance at home. Cook something simple and wholesome like spaghetti, garlic bread, and salad. Serve the meal with wine over a candlelit table. Play some soft music in the background.  Instead of going out with the crowd this Valentine’s Day, enjoy a restaurant-quality meal in the comfort of your own home.

Wine Tasting

You don’t have to go to some expensive wine bar or winery to do wine tasting. Create your own wine tasting event right at home. Go to the store and buy five different types of wine and some cheese. At home, lay out all five wines and make a cheese plate. Light some candles, put on music, and open one bottle at a time. Pour only one glass from each bottle and swirl, smell, sip and exchange thoughts on the wine. If you’re not sure what to purchase, ask the specialist at the store for some pointers.

Go On a Picnic

Pack some sandwiches, chips, and a couple of sodas and take your spouse to a really nice park. Don’t bring your phone with you so that you can give your spouse your undivided attention. Before you arrive at the park, make a list of 10 things you love about your spouse and then read it to them during the picnic. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, move your picnic under an overhang and listen to the rain fall—a romantic backdrop.

Breakfast in Bed

Get up early and cook your spouse’s favorite breakfast. Be creative and put the food into the shape of a heart. Serve it to them while they are in bed with a rose in a vase. You could also cut out a simple heart-shaped Valentine’s Day note and put it on the plate.
