This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday! That means even more time to spend together. When Andrew and I have date night, it always involves food. Whether we cook together, go out to eat, or splurge on dessert, it’s a crucial part of date night. Today, I’ve got a few fun date ideas for the couple who loves to eat together!
A few months ago, Andrew and I decided to have a weekly date night. I’m always trying to think of fun ideas, because we love to try new things! While it’s great spending time together no matter what we do, it’s nice to mix things up and do something different.
Make Breakfast Together
If you are one of my loyal followers, you know that Andrew and I love to make breakfast together on a day off! Lately we’ve been trying some healthier options like this Greek Frittata. But for Valentine’s Day, we should splurge a little and make something like these Chocolate Crumble Donuts!
Last month, I was able to find a great Groupon deal for a wine tasting. We booked it for Valentine’s Day! This is something you want to try to book early, special dates like this will fill up fast. If wine isn’t your thing, you could try beer tasting.
Go on a Picnic
This is one of our favorite date ideas! There are lots of parks in our area that are perfect for a picnic. We like to make our own sandwiches to bring along, but you could also pick up something on the way.
Fill a basket with everything you will need: plates, silverware, napkins, cups, etc. Andrew always says that our first picnic was how he learned that I am super organized and like to be prepared!
Try a New Restaurant
I love using the Yelp app on my phone to find new restaurants to try. You can use a filter to tell it what type of food you are looking for. So if you are like us and have a sushi obsession, search for a restaurant you’ve never been to before.
Build a Fort
My friend Madison over at The Wetherills Say I Do had a fun idea for a date night in: use pillows and blankets to build a DIY fort in your living room! Chances are, this idea will bring back lots of childhood memories to share with each other.
Have lots of snacks on hand to munch on while you chat or watch a movie. You could make popcorn or buy your favorite childhood candies and treats.
Make a Special Meal Together
If you enjoy cooking together, do some research and find a special meal to try. You might try a new sauce to go with steak, or make a creamy pasta dish. One of our favorite special meals is Andrew’s homemade chicken alfredo. We rarely eat pasta or creamy sauces, so it’s really fun to be able to splurge a little.
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?
