Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Looking for something to do after dinner? Just want to change it up a little? I’ve listed some of my favorite “off the beaten path ideas” below.
Wine & Paint Night – Channel the inner Picasso in both of you with a paint brush and a glass of wine. Wine & Paint nights aren’t just for girl’s night out. This is a great after dinner activity for couple’s on Valentine’s Day. There’s nothing like a little friendly competition to see who can create the next masterpiece.
Sign up for a cooking class – They always say the way to a man’s heart is through the kitchen, which makes a cooking class the perfect date! Test out your palette while learning how to create new dishes and enjoy a nice meal together in a creative way.
A night under the stars at the Planetarium – A lot of Planetariums hold special events on Valentine’s Day because what is more romantic than spending a night looking up at the stars. Check out your local one and see what they have going on!
Take a scavenger hunt around the city – Plan a whole night of surprises. Trade on and off. Put him in charge of where to eat dinner, you take the dessert and alternate on nightly activities. The best part about the scavenger hunt, is neither of you tell the other what you have planned, you each make up clues and half the fun is in the guessing.
A night at the zoo – What is more romantic than hanging out with cute animals! Stroll past elephants, monkeys and bears hand in hand and hey, if it’s cold, just pull each other closer.
Test out your teamwork skills in an escape room – What better way to work on your communication skills than the escape game! The clock is ticking and the game is on. Will you make it out?
Volunteer – Give back together.
