Alternative Valentine's Day Date Ideas

Valentine’s Day can be a wonderful day for many couples who enjoy buying expensive gifts and going out for dinner at fancy restaurants. However, not every couple enjoys the same Valentine’s Day activities and some might even dread the arrival of the year’s most loved-up day.

Luckily, there is something for everyone and the options for alternative Valentine’s Day dates are endless. If crowded restaurants aren’t your idea of the ideal date, then don’t get your lucky pants in a knot just yet!

We’re going to take a look at some great alternative date ideas, such as bottomless brunch, getting outdoors, DIY projects, online bingo games, online slots, slingo games and much more.

Let’s get stuck in shall we?

Bottomless brunch

The staple date time for Valentine’s Day seems to be dinner at a fancy restaurant. This is understandable, especially when it falls on a workday. However, there’s nothing wrong with switching this up a bit. There’s a new, very exciting kid on the block when it comes to date ideas: Bottomless brunch, and it’s perfect for a Valentine’s Day date.

Bottomless brunch simply means that you’ll get unlimited drinks alongside your French toast, full English breakfast, or other meal of choice. The great thing about doing this in the morning is that it gives you the rest of the day to do other exciting activities too. Don’t fret if the 14th is on a weekday either! Simply delay your celebration until the weekend.

Home cinema

Going to the movies has been a staple Valentine’s Day idea for aeons and that hasn’t changed. The cinema isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, however, and it can be a fairly costly experience nowadays. Instead of going to a cinema, why not hire a projector for the evening and set up your own at-home movie experience with your loved one’s favourite snacks and drinks.

This is a cosy, comfortable and downright romantic twist on a traditional Valentine’s Day date.

Around the world feasting

There’s nothing better than heading out to a restaurant that produces food from a different culture, whether you’re into Mexican, French, Thai or Italian food and anything else in between. Going out to a restaurant on Valentine’s Day is often less than satisfactory, however, with places packed and noisy.

If you’re not on a budget, then you could hire a private chef to come to your house and cook up your loved one’s favourite cuisine. Alternatively, you could order takeouts from your favourite restaurants and feast on the different meals from around the world, picnic-style, in your lounge. If you are adept in the kitchen, then why not try some of the simpler dishes yourself? Your significant other is bound to be impressed.

Adrenaline pumping activities

If you’re looking to go completely against the grain on Valentine’s Day then you could choose an activity that really gets the adrenaline pumping. Book a ticket for you and your loved one to go to an adventure park, skydiving, bungee jumping, speed boating, etc.

Get into nature

There’s nothing quite as romantic as being out in nature with the person you love, unless they abhor the outdoors of course. Getting out and about in the fresh air is always a wonderful way to spend Valentine’s Day, whether it’s a sedate picnic in the park, a leisurely stroll along the river, or something a little more adventurous like hiking or mountain biking. The fresh air and beautiful scenery will leave you feeling rested, revived and connected to your partner.

DIY projects

Have you got a bunch of stuff around the house that you’ve been meaning to do but haven’t quite gotten to yet? Of course, we aren’t talking about housework, but rather little projects that you want to complete for your home. If so, then doing these DIY projects together can be a wonderful way to spend Valentine’s Day, creating something that you both care about. Sit together and build that birdhouse you want to put up for spring, finish that tile mosaic in the bathroom, or create those vegetable garden beds that you’ve had on the back burner for years.

At the end of the day, you are working together to finish up something that will add to the feeling of love and satisfaction in your home.

Online games

Of course, with Valentine’s Day falling in February, this often means that the weather can be a little less than perfect for an outside activity, but that doesn’t have to dampen your date. We’ve mentioned plenty of inside activities already, but if you and your partner are particularly fond of playing games then there’s a whole heap of options available to you. You could host a couple’s game night with your friends and play online bingo at a bingo site.

If you’d rather keep it to just the two of you, then you could also play slots online or the exciting game of Slingo which combines the best bits of bingo and slots together into one game. This is an entertaining date idea and you never know, you might win some extra cash to really spoil your loved one with another super special date.
