by Emily Wilkinson

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! If you aren’t sure how you want to spend the holiday with the one you love most, we’ve got you covered with a few ways to celebrate! All of these ideas are relatively inexpensive, and the main focus is about spending time with each other and celebrating the love you have for one another… which is what the day is all about after all, right?

Valentine's Day Date Night Ideas

CREATE A NEW TRADITION
Love is built on creating traditions together, so why not start now? Create a special tradition together that can span many years. If your loved one enjoys jewelry, head to one of our Schiffman’s locations to pick out a special piece of jewelry together! Jewelry is great way to remember a special occasion and it can be passed down to other generations in the future.

COOK DINNER TOGETHER
Restaurants tend to be overcrowded on Valentine’s Day, so instead of going out plan on making dinner together. Maybe cook one of your favorite meals together or if you’re feeling adventurous, try a brand new dish. Add in a nice bottle of wine and a homemade dessert and you’ve got a perfect night sans crowds!

TAKE A COOKING CLASS
Cooking classes are a fun way to learn how to cook while working together in the kitchen! Places like Williams-Sonoma offer cooking classes often and they make for a great date night (with good food to boot!)

MAKE RESERVATIONS AT A RESTAURANT THAT HAS SPECIAL MEMORIES
If you choose to go out to dinner for Valentine’s Day, go somewhere that has a special meaning! Did you go to that restaurant on the night you got engaged? Is that where you went on your first date? Choosing a restaurant that holds special memories for you as a couple is a great way to make the day special.

RECREATE YOUR LOVE STORY
Nothing is more romantic than your love story, so why not recreate it?! This will obviously take a bit of planning, but it would be such a cute date night. Go back to the place where you had your first date, first kiss, where you got engaged, etc. and relive those special memories!

DINNER & A MOVIE AT HOME
Make your favorite meal, then curl up on the couch with your significant other for a night of cuddling and watching a good movie! Don’t forget to grab your favorite movie snacks!

TAKE A STAYCATION
A staycation is a great way to “get away” and spend time just the two of you! Who doesn’t like getting away for a bit? Proximity Hotel and O’Henry Hotel both offer staycation packages to locals.
