Ten Sweet Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day

If you’re having some trouble coming up with exciting date ideas for your Valentine’s Day, our guide will help point you in the right direction. It’s time to take a look at our ten best sweet date ideas for Valentine’s Day 2021.

1. Cook a Special Dinner at Home

Instead of spending a fortune on two meals and having to jump through hoops just to get a reservation at a high-end restaurant that you may or may not end up loving, make the evening memorable by cooking a special dinner at home. Take a couple days to plan things out beforehand by asking your date about their favorite meals, drinks, appetizers, and desserts.

Get creative! Plan the date to go any way you feel will be the most special. While some couples bond through cooking together and sharing the experience, others love to take turns cooking so that dinner can be the main event for the other person. There’s no right or wrong way to do it. So start by lighting some candles, playing some fun music, and pouring your favorite wine or margarita while you get ready to create some culinary magic! Before you begin your meal preparation, why not share a special treat? FAB CBD Gummies are a fun, delicious way to share a CBD treat whether you’re out on a date or staying home to cook your Valentine’s Day dinner.

2. Plan an Active Date Filled with Fun Activities

It’s easy to think that sporting activities won’t make for a fun Valentine’s Day date. But when you really put some thought into it, you will realize that most sports are played with two or more people. Playing sports then becomes the perfect opportunity to have an active and intimate Valentine’s Day date. If you live in a warm, sunny location, try venturing down to the beach to play some beach volleyball. Why not invite a few other couples along to make the game a little more fun and competitive? The simple act of sharing an activity together can be both romantic and exciting.

For those of us who don’t live in a warm, tropical part of the world, there are other activities that can be fun when done together like skiing, hiking, sledding, ice skating, snowboarding, or bicycling. Think of doing an athletic activity together not only as a bonding experience, but also as a way to ignite your competitive nature while enjoying all that the great outdoors has to offer. If you’re sore after all of those sporting activities, then FAB CBD’s, CBD Salve will help to melt your aches and pains away. You and your Valentine can take turns applying the salve to any sore muscles and joints. FAB CBD’s Topical Salve features an amazing heating and cooling sensation, and is crafted with primary essential oils and a calming scent.

3. Stream a New Movie Together, Hulu & Netflix are Releasing a Ton Right Now!

Not every movie you see has to be a romantic one. Likewise, not every movie you see has to be a new one. Some of the best movies are the black and while films of the 1920s, 1930s, or 1940s. If classic movies aren’t your thing, then foreign films might be right up your alley. Nothing is quite as entertaining as learning about a land, its culture, and its people through its spoken language and cinematography.

Whichever type of movie you choose to take in, make a special night of it. Start by whipping up a delicious dinner complete with appetizers, main course, and a romantic dessert. Then, move over to the couch, get comfy, and choose a movie that you both will love from your favorite online streaming service or from your cable provider's "On Demand" feature. If classic movies or foreign films aren't your thing, remember that most online streaming services are releasing brand new movies just about every month! The options are fairly endless.

4. Include the Family

While most of us think of Valentine’s Day as a romantic day for couples to celebrate, it also can be a fun day to spend with the entire family. In fact, many places have a host of fun games and activities to do that are family friendly. Some places that make for a great family Valentine’s Day outing! Check out some new local parks, trails, it isn't too cold! Pretty cold in certain places right now so you're better off keeping those games indoors!

What you choose to do for your family Valentine’s Day will largely depend on what everyone in your family loves to do. If you all share a love of the great outdoors, then a hike or a visit to a nature center or nature preserve might be the best way to go. If you all love to craft and create art using different mediums such as paint, clay, paper, or yarn, then a pottery shop, art center, or crafting shop will work best. Remember, you have an entire day, so there’s lots of time to visit more than one venue.

5. Read or Listen to a New Books!

Couples who share in each other’s interests have a greater appreciation for one another. You can pick a couple different short books or stories to live in another world together Why not try picking a book out for each other? Or, pick out a book that you can read together each night so that the bonding can extend beyond Valentine’s Day. One way to spend a romantic Valentine’s Day together is to take turns reading and discussing various passages with each other from the same book.

6. Stream a Concert Online

Since most everything is online these days, concerts are no exception. There are many advantages to streaming your favorite music artist or band online. First, the cost of the ticket might be a little less expensive. Second, you won’t have to worry about picking the best seat or finding the perfect parking spot.

7. Play Some Board Games

Whether you’re with the one you love or with your family, playing your favorite board games can make for a fun and cozy Valentine’s Day.

Set up a snack table with your favorite treats, drinks, and munchies to really make an event out of it. If you want to make the evening a little more exciting, turn the night into a competitive board game match for you and your loved ones or any other couples you choose to invite.

8. Star Gaze Together

Use your favorite book or app to discover the stars and constellations together. When it gets dark, bundle up and set out your favorite blanket and warm drinks outside so that you can sit comfortably and gaze at the stars. Don’t forget to set up your telescope beforehand so you can take turns locating and identifying different constellations and star groups.

9. Schedule a Mini-Vacation

Why should Valentine’s Day be just a single day? Why not extend your celebration by renting a cottage or a house in one of your favorite locations? There are many apps that allow you to browse various cottages, homes, apartments, and other dwellings that you can rent directly from the owner for a brief period of time. Make your getaway even more romantic by choosing a place to stay that has amenities that you might not have at home like a hot tub, a fireplace, a nearby hiking trail, a chef’s kitchen, and other special things. Also, choose an area that has a lot to take advantage of such as local shopping, hiking, bike riding, horseback riding, etc. Remember, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to end on February 14.

10. Serve Others

In taking the time to volunteer at a local soup kitchen or shelter, not only are you helping others in a difficult situation feel good, you’re also spreading feelings of love, kindness, and charity throughout your community. Serving others doesn’t have to end at helping your fellow man. You can also choose to volunteer your time at an animal shelter by taking care of your four-legged friends too.
