7 Unique Valentine's Day Experiences

Are you looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day date night? If you don't know exactly what you want to do with your S.O. this Valentine's Day, but you do know that you don't want to get stuck in a Netflix or takeout rut or, even worse, end up at an overpriced and unoriginal cliché dinner, then we have the perfect blog for you. Whether you're single, dating, somewhere in between, or just looking for a fun Valentine’s Day activity with your friend, we’re here to ensure your Valentine's Day is a date to remember with these creative ideas.

A Bonfire:

If you live in the suburbs, grab some marshmallows, chocolates, and s'mores, then spend the night in cuddling up by the fire. You’re sure to have a cozy evening filled with laughter and meaningful conversations while growing closer in your relationships.


Not just any dancing, we mean real, ballroom dancing. You can take a class, create an at-home salsa club, or do a virtual tutorial. If you’re interested in learning from home, we suggest something like the Valentine's Day Dirty Dancing Party in Chicago since they offer both virtual as well as in person courses.

Ice Skating:

There's a reason why couples are always hitting the rink in our favorite romance movies. Besides being able to laugh at each other when you fall, you're pretty much guaranteed to get close to each other whether you’re holding hands or teaching your date how to skate. Once you've had your fill of the ice, head back home to make some steaming hot cocoa and enjoy the night in.

Roller Skating:

It's just as romantic as ice skating, but with a little more pizzazz and a lot less cold. And since it's Valentine’s Day, your local rink will likely have a love and hearts theme. Turn it into a retro night by going to your local thrift store and choosing outfits for each other to wear skating! Make it a silly activity where you compete to buy the funniest/most ridiculous item for each other.

A Themed Dinner and Movie Night at Home:

Enjoy a night in with your S.O. or a group of friends while you cook up themed dinner dishes and watch a favorite movie. Incorporate dishes from the movie or create your own that tie into the theme and transport yourselves into the movie world for a one-of-a-kind viewing experience.

A Relaxing Spa Day:

Check out your local spa and see if they offer any Valentine's Day specials for couples. Take advantage of the reduced rates and spend the day relaxing with your S.O. with an all-day access package or bring a friend and simply spend a day out treating yourselves this Valentine’s Day.

A Couple's Cooking Class:

Whether or not cooking is your strong suit, sign up for a couples cooking class to sharpen your kitchen skills. There is sure to be lots of laughter as you enjoy each other’s company and a memorable cooking experience. Need last minute Valentine’s Day plans? Sign up for a virtual cooking class where you can learn to make each other's favorite meals!

No matter what you decide and what your plans are this Valentine's Day, we're sure that they will be extra special with your loved ones.
