At Max and Slate, we like to stand out from the crowd. It’s not our style to maintain the status quo and take the safe route. We wanted to give our readers some romantic Valentine’s date ideas that dared to be different, so we put together this list. If you’re looking to give your partner the same old Valentine’s experience of dinner and a movie, this isn’t the article for you. We’re going to show you how to be adventurous this Valentine’s Day.
Stimulate Her Senses with Dining in the Dark
Dining in the Dark takes a creative approach to the age-old cliché of the Valentine’s Day dinner. This unusual trend has exploded in popularity across the nation in recent years, and many different restaurants across America hold regular “dark dining” events for local patrons. Dining in the Dark is said to enhance the senses of taste, smell, and even touch. This truly enticing experience will awaken your partner’s senses this Valentine’s Day.
Get Her Heart Pounding with Rock Climbing
Let’s face it, some women are drawn to danger and excitement. Rock Climbing is a great way to let her explore her inner “thrill seeker” while still staying relatively safe this Valentine’s Day. If the real deal is too intense, rock climbing gyms with indoor climbing walls are becoming increasingly popular across the country. This will allow both of you to get a taste of the thrill right in your own backyard.
Keep Things Light with a Comedy Show
Maybe your partner isn’t the type to go rock climbing, or to be adventurous during a new dining experience. However, comedy is something that almost everyone can appreciate. If there are any comedy clubs in your area, it’s almost a guarantee that they’ll have a show on Valentine’s Day. If you live in a larger city, you may even be able to get seats at a larger show as well.
Unwind with a Couple’s Spa Day
The only thing better than getting your partner the best Valentine’s present ever is finding a gift that you can enjoy as well. By having a couple’s spa day, you’ll both be able to unwind and savor each other’s company in an ultra-relaxing environment. You’ll be able to enjoy foot massages, facials, and even hot stone treatments.
Get in Touch with Your Wild Side on a Camping Trip
Sometimes, you just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of society. If you live in a warm enough climate, going on Valentine’s Day camping trip is a great way to break free. She’ll love the romantic vibe you’ll share deep in the woods with no one else around. Sharing a tent, roasting marshmallows over the fire, and looking up at the stars are only a few of the ways you can bond in the wilderness.
Keep in mind that we’ve only scratched the surface of all the awesome Valentine’s Day date ideas you can treat her to this year. To plan the best Valentine’s Day of all time, all you need is a little bit of creativity!
