10 Fun Things To Do This Valentine’s Day
Have you made your plans for Valentine’s Day yet?
If you’ve been wracking your brain trying to think of something more original than dinner and a movie (or you’ve completely forgotten about it) – don’t worry.
We’ve compiled a list of 10 romantic activities that are sure to win your love’s heart, whether you’re just starting out or have been together for years. And we’ve included links to help you plan your date.
There are activities ranging from the sweet and simple to fun and exotic. But all are sure to impress your paramour with their originality and spontaneity.
- Go for a walk
Nothing beats a beautiful walk in nature holding hands with that special someone. You’ve got quite a few choices, with the Chisholm Trail Greenbelt, Bob Woodruff Trail, Bluebonnet Trail and more nearby. Here’s a link to a map and trail locations.
Bonus: Hide a romantic note or present along the trail beforehand for them to find.
- Visit the National Videogame Museum
Is your boo a gamer fanatic? Well then get your nerd on at the National Videogame Museum right down the street in Frisco, TX. You can learn about the timeline of gaming consoles and challenge each other to a romantic deathmatch in their retro arcade “Pixel Dreams”. Here’s the link to their website.
Hit the lanes for some classic, wholesome competition with your sweetheart. Even if you can only throw gutter balls, it’s a fun date. Here’s a few local bowling alleys you can check out.
- Cook dinner
A home-cooked, romantic dinner for two never gets old – besides, who wants to fight the crowds and pay for an overpriced abbreviated “special” menu at a busy restaurant?
Here are some table decorating ideas.
Don’t forget the wine.
- Couple’s massage
Nothing ruins a romantic evening like pent up stress. Work out the kinks with a couple’s massage. Leave feeling relaxed, renewed and ready for love. Here are some links to local massage studios and deals.
- Take a class
Taking a class with your date isn’t only a learning experience, it’s a ton of fun. A shared experience is a great way to bond with your significant person – and as an added bonus, many places let your BYOB (bring your own bottle). Learn to paint cows, cook Indian food or make delectable chocolate.
There’s lots of options:
- See a comedy show
Laughter is always the best medicine and a night out at the comedy club is a great date. Show them you’ve got a sense of humor and have something to chuckle about the rest of the night. Here’s a link to some upcoming comedy shows.
- Recreate your first date
Remember your first date? Even if it was a disaster, recreate it. Obviously it’s going well if you’re still together, but showing your valentine that that first date was memorable will melt their heart.
- Go dancing
Show them your moves with the sensual language of dance. Guys, it’s the perfect way to win your date’s heart by showing them you’ve got some moves. And girls, nothing gets their attention like you moving on the floor in a little red dress.
If you’ve got two left feet, show them you’re not afraid to try by taking a dancing lesson together.
- Play hookey
This year, Valentine’s Day is on a Friday, so why not skip work *cough, cough* and surprise your love with breakfast in bed, followed by a long weekend of doing whatever you want – even if it’s just staying in bed.
These are just a few ideas to get you started creating a romantic day for the one you love. Mix and match or choose one special thing.
Whatever you choose, if they’re one of the good ones, they’re going to love you for it.
