Valentine’s Day just four days away and for sure lovers around the world are preparing for the occasion. Most people want to give the best date for their partners and want it to be a memorable Valentine’s Day experience for their loved one. 

“Valentine's Day is just one day out of a remaining 364 in which to demonstrate your affection,”  relationship expert and author of “Allowing Magnificence,” Susan Winter told Bustle. “Don’t buy into the consumer marketing ploy. Meaningful relationships are built on small, consistent acts of kindness over the entirety of a relationship. Grand gestures pale in comparison to the littler acts of ongoing appreciation and thoughtfulness.”

For those who are searching for good Valentine’s Day date activities, below are 10 ideas to consider. They are fun, can be old-school too but really work in achieving that romantic mood for the day of the hearts.

Get Tickets for a Musical or Ballet Show

The two of you can dress up a bit for this date. It is likely that there are shows in your town so check out the schedule and reserve two tickets for your date night. 

Suite for a Retreat Date 

For a more special evening with your loved one, make a reservation at a hotel for a romantic day. You can also prepare champagne and dinner right in your room. 

Recreate Your First Date 

Take a trip down the memory lane by recreating your first date. Did the two of you stroll at a park that day, do exactly the same on Valentine’s day and you can even wear the same clothes as well for a complete recreation of that day. 

Romantic Stroll 

Dating on Valentine’s day doesn’t have to be expensive. A simple stroll with your partner and watching the sunset together is a romantic dating idea too! Walk while holding hands and enjoy the views of the sunset. 

Rom-com at Home 

Another inexpensive but great way to spend Valentine’s day with your partner is to stay at home and watch rom-coms on TV. Choose great romantic comedy movies and play them while cuddling up on the couch, with food and wine on the coffee table.

Romantic Weekend Getaway 

For a change, spend the weekend in the mountains and enjoy various activities away from the busy city. There are cabin rentals these days and you can set up camp with lots of privacy. Marie Claire suggested that you can also put up bonfire and roast some s’mores.

Spa Day

There are spas that offer services for couples and why not spend Valentine’s day together with a relaxing massage and other treats to soothe the body and mind. Chill with your partner and feel refreshed after this perfect Valentine’s date. 

Shopping Spree

For some couples who enjoy city life, shopping could be a good dating idea too. Get your lady some new lingerie, dress, shoes, and a nice shirt, tie and other things for you. You can also get something that the two of you like such as the latest workout machine or a video game. 

Hometown Visit 

Let your partner see where you spent most of your childhood and meet your family by exploring your hometown. Take pictures with your partner in areas where you made special memories. For ladies and guys, isn’t it touching if their partners show them around the place they grew up in? 

Make Reservations In Exclusive Restaurant

This is surely one of the old school ways to spend Valentine’s day. It never fails to work for those who would like to achieve a romantic evening so this is a good dating idea. Choose a restaurant that offers your partner’s favorite cuisine or simply a good place where the two of you can both enjoy the food and ambiance.
