Happy almost Valentine’s Day week y’all! This week is going to be all about the lovey holiday on Louella Reese. Well actually half of it will focus on celebrating Valentine’s Day with your s.o. while the other half will focus on Galentine’s Day with your girl friends! Today I am kicking things off with my favorite guy and we’re spilling ten Valentine’s Day date ideas. Five from him, five from me. These are dates we both would truly partake in or have in the past or plan to do ourselves this Valentine’s Day holiday.
I love hearing from Joshua and know y’all do as well so he’ll be making two appearances this week! So be sure to check back tomorrow for more from this funny guy!
Five Valentine’s Day Date Ideas from Him
Bojangles Heart Shaped Bo-Berry Biscuits
Stop by Bojangles on the way home on Valentine’s day to show your lady true love with a heart shaped Bo-Berry biscuit. Then prepare a meal at home. And finish off the meal with biscuits from the heart. Heart shaped Bo-berries are the best!
Board game night
Stay in and cook dinner or grab takeout. Then afterwards partake in some friendly competition with board games. We personally like to play cards, Yahtzee, Uno, Clue, and Sorry. This is a fun way to spend an evening in. You can put a little wager on the games to increase the competition. We have wagered a massage, dessert or supper the next night.
Dessert Bake Off
After going out for Valentine’s Day dinner, skip dessert and go home to bake some of your own. Each person picks out a recipe, let the competition begin. This could be a favorite of the other person or something that seems very tasty.
Local hockey game and beers + concessions
I am lucky to have a wife that enjoys going to hockey and football games. But really who doesn’t love a local minor league hockey game? Take in a hockey game, burgers, hot dogs, popcorn, and beers. Since this is for Valentine’s Day, call ahead and ask to get on the Kiss Cam or a ride on the zamboni.
Breakfast in Bed Switch Off
This allows both of you to enjoy a little extra relaxation while enjoying your favorite breakfast over the Valentine’s weekend. One person prepares breakfast Saturday while the other takes Sunday morning. The other will prepare breakfast and you get to have two relaxing mornings over the weekend. If you have kids then it can be a great way to get the kids involved and have fun family mornings.
Five Valentine’s Day Date Ideas from Her
Bonfire with all of the s’more goodies
There’s something captivating about a fire. Along with that, they provide a romantic ambiance. So grab a cozy blanket and head outside for a snuggly evening by the fire. Fill a thermos with hot chocolate and be sure to bring all of the s’more goodies – chocolate, graham crackers, marshmallows, and if you’re feeling adventurous Oreo’s and Reese’s too.
Bowling and beers
Joshua and I went out bowling a couple of weeks ago and had the best time! A little competition goes a long way for a fun date night out. Lots of teasing, laughs, and high-fives. Grab your better half and tie on some funky bowling shoes. With two people a game goes quick so go ahead and go for the best out of three (or five).
For a little extra competition, place a bet! Winner picks dessert or where to go grab beers next.
Breakfast for dinner at your local diner
Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? Head to your local diner and order stacks of pancakes, bacon, biscuits, and all of your breakfast favorites. Then end the meal with a milkshake for two. Bonus romance points if you drink it at the same time (with two straws).
Bring some quarters! If it’s a true old school diner you’ll have the chance to play your song on the jukebox.
Create your own Bar Crawl with apps
This is such a fun way to go out for Valentine’s Day but skip the reservations and fixed menus. Plan out three to five restaurants, cocktail clubs, breweries, and/or bars within close proximity you want to visit. Make a route and spend 45 minutes to an hour at each destination. Limiting yourself will make sure you hit all the spots on your list. Then you can always go back to your favorite if you’re wanting to continue the night.
Order a cocktail, wine, or beer at each spot and choose one to to appetizers to split. For a little more fun, have one person pick at each spot – food and drinks for both. Then rotate every spot!
Fireplace fire with wine and charcuterie board
Looking for an ultra cozy night in? Build a fire in your fireplace or flip the switch. Pour two fabulous glasses of wine and create the ultimate charcuterie board with your favorites. Spend the cuddled up by the fire chatting about the past year, future plans, and just how much you love one another. Doesn’t get more romantic than that!
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Staying in or going out?
