Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

Ever since I can remember, I always loved Valentine’s Day. There is just something about all the pink and red decor, the chocolates, and flowers that just makes me feel so warm. I love love and I always did even when I was single. Regardless of if you are single or celebrating with your significant other, there is something to do! For all you locals in Philly/NJ, you can click HERE for a guide on what to do in Philly 🙂

If you’re taken/have a Valentine:

  • Go out to dinner: search your local restaurants for Valentine’s Day deals/special menus.
  • Cook dinner for your significant other: It’s very romantic to do a candlelit dinner at home and you guys don’t have to get dressed up. Home sweet home right? Omg I also saw Costco is selling heart shaped ravioli so totally suitable for at home dinner.
  • Movie date: If there is a good movie out, go for it! Usually since it is VDAY, chick flicks are released and my bf rather me watch it with my girls. If not, you can always do #2 or even order out to enjoy movies at home with your boo.
  • Ice Skating: Yes it is cold but February is still in the winter months for us East Coasters and it is an excuse to keep each other warm 🙂
  • Chick Fil A: If money is tight, Chick Fil A is selling nuggets in heart trays! You can get 10 for $12 or 30 for $17 and enjoy this at home with your lover.
  • Picnic: If you live somewhere nice out, there’s nothing like a romantic picnic with wine, cheese, chocolate, and sandwiches. My bf and I done picnics in the past (warmer weather) by the beach during sunset and it is seriously the most beautiful thing ever.

If you’re single:

  • Go shopping & treat yourself 🙂
  • Chick Flick marathon for yourself. No need to fight hours over what to watch cause you can pick ANYTHING! You’re in charge today 🙂
  • Spend time with your parents! Show them how much you love them by simply spending time with them.
  • Self Care: Go get a massage, do a face mask, take a bubble bath & sip on some wine, whatever you do to relax!
  • Chick Fil A: Yes you can stay home and gift this to yourself lol you can get 10 for $12 or if you’re really hungry, 30 for $17

Galentine’s Day Ideas

  • Happy Hour: nothing like drinks to celebrate being single lol JK
  • Go out to dinner: search your local restaurants for Valentine’s Day deals/special menus.
  • Chick Flick Marathon: My faves are The Notebook & How to lose a guy in 10 Days. I prefer to watch Chick Flicks with my girls anyways cause my bf is so not interested in lovey dovey chick flicks.
  • Make a cheese & meat plate and pair it with your fave wine. If you wanna be extra, decorate your wine glasses to be extra festive.
  • Bake: Nothing like bonding over baking and then eating it with your best girlfriends 🙂

Hope everyone enjoyed these ideas. Of course, you can do whatever you want but these are just some ideas to get you started. Whatever the occasion, be creative, be different & of course be extra like me! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
