With less than a month to go until Valentine’s Day is finally here again, I aim to lift your spirits by offering some rather candid, truly unique and very romantic Valentine’s Day ideas. It can be hard to really spice of the romance in your life, and this day is the one day of year where our focus is supposed to truly center upon the person that we love and care for the most. However, you don’t have to be cliché in your approach. Because if you ask me, just going out to dinner where you can barely hear what the other person is saying because the restaurant is jam packed with other Valentine’s Day daters is a bit overdone and bland. Rather, change things up this year with these innovative ideas that will leave you both spellbound for one another.
Picnic in the Park at Sunset
Sunsets are romantic. Parks are equally romantic. Dinner in the park at sunset: Totally romantic and invigorating. Bring along an old school 50s picnic basket. Pack some nice wine and prepare a gourmet meal for two. Don’t forget the candles and a sweet poem that you can read to your lover as you both enjoy the sun setting in the West.
Dinner Theater and Wine Bar
Want to really change things up? Then look up a dinner theater restaurant in your area. You still have plenty of time to book reservations before they are full for Valentine’s Day. It’s a great time. You eat amazing food, watch a play and have a blast. Find a murder mystery one if you desire crowd participation. Then head to the nearest wine bar afterwards to cap off the night with some chardonnay.
Gourmet Home-Cooked Meal & Candlelit Bath for Two
Why go out when you can cook at home? Clean your house and use your fanciest utensils. Look up a great gourmet recipe and cook a delectable meal for two. Don’t forget the dimmed lights, candles and incense, and of course, the romantic music in the background. After dinner and a few glasses of wine, draw a hot bath for two.
