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 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 🙂
  • Picnic: If you live somewhere nice out, there’s nothing like a romantic picnic with wine, cheese, chocolate, and sandwiches.

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 guys are usually not so into it lol
  • 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!
