I know Valentine’s Day is only two days away and I’m sure some of you are still scrambling for date ideas and what to wear for Valentine’s Day celebration. Do you ever wonder what other fun date ideas you can do besides a romantic dinner date? Have you made dinner reservations? Do you actually have a plan? It’s ok if you are still not sure what to do or what restaurant to go or what else to do beside dinner date. If you’re like me, a busy/working mom of two, dinner may not always work but having to think off other fun ideas indoors seems hard. I can count how many times we canceled our dinner reservations at the last minute because we were either exhausted from work or something came up regarding the kids. Last year, we spent pre Valentine’s Day ordering and watching our favorite shows in cozy pjs because I was pregnant, tired and unbothered LOL. However throughout the years we have had different fun date ideas. If you are one of those that want to do something different and fun other than a dinner date, I have rounded 10 fun date ideas for Valentine’s Day and beyond including outfit to wear for the date.
What I Am Wearing For Valentine’s Day Date Night
10 Fun Valentine’s Day ideas
WHERE YOU SHOULD GO
- A romantic weekend getaway: you can plan a romantic vacation to fall around Valentine’s Day. Two years ago, we took a group couples vacation for Valentine’s Day to Mexico and it was amazing.
- Staycations: I am always searching for cute, vibrant hotels for staycations. It’s refreshing to be in a different environment even if it’s for a night. Some of my favorite hotels around DMV for staycations are Four Seasons, Sagamore Pendry, Canopy wharf, Kimpton hotels to name a few.
- Date night to a fancy restaurant. You can try somewhere with live music or a band. Some great restaurants to check out in Maryland: Tagliatelle, Citron to name a few
- Take a class together: cooking, dance or pottery class.
WHAT TO DO
- Treat yourself to a great couples massage
- Invite a few couples for an evening filled with competitive fun. My friend and I are actually planning a couple game night for the weekend. We have previously done this game night a couple of times and it’s always fun. One of the games we played was to have the guys do our makeup. The outcome was hilarious. This is a great idea for busy parents.
- Cook dinner together or try a new recipe
- Order in, grab some popcorn and watch your favorite shows together or romantic movies on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon prime etc. This was our Valentine’s date night last year.
- Go hiking or take romantic walk at the park
- Be a tourist in your state. Visit place in your state that you haven’t been to before such the National museum, Pentago City
