Sure, we love our significant one every day, every moment, but a romantic valentine's day can be an bonus occasion to celebrate our love. A simple celebration can be extremely memorable when you're with your significant other. Chocolates and flower bouquets of roses are lovely valentine's day gifts, but spending time with your partner and making memories will top the chart of the valentine's day best ideas.

But to come up with the perfect getaway or night-in plan can be very difficult. Specially if you have been doing it with your partner for a longe time. So here I am sharing 25 most romantic valentine's day ideas for couples.

1. Go On An Unplanned Trip

Try an unplanned trip for an unexpected experience if you want to make lasting memories with your love. Make no reservations in advance. Pack your bags and set out with your partner to a random location. This will allow the thrill of the adventure to take over and the wild world of travel to do its thing. For instance, on your way to get your morning coffee, you might come across an overnight tour with your bae!

Tips to pick a location

Well the world is your oyster, so choose any location you want. It is best to go to a new place for both of you so exploring the place can be equally interesting.

2. Experience Something New

Chocolates and flowers are sweet, and a romantic dinner is always a win, but doing some crazy and fun is memorable for a lifetime! Go for sky-diving or bungee jumping with your special one to make this valentine's day adventurously romantic. If you love adventures, these are perhaps the best valentine's day ideas.

You can search for these activities near you. If it's not available in a nearby area you can double the fun by traveling away from home and then going on an adventure. Whichever plan you go with, remember to be careful and follow all the safety instructions.

You can also go to an amusement park and have some fun in the roller coaster if falling from the sky seem too thrilling for you.

3. Make Your Living Room A Ballroom

When was the last time you and your significant other went dancing? Moving the furniture to create some space and turn your living room into a ballroom. Play some romantic music and have a good time dancing the night away. Move your body in freestyle with your favorite music.

4. Pottery Crafts

Making pottery crafts can be one of the most creative valentine's day ideas for couples. If you are an art lover, then it’s a bonus point. You can have a lovely time making some amazing pottery crafts and painting them as you want. You can keep the pots you have made for each other as Valentine's day gift. 

To try this at home, you don't need too many things. You can buy all the pottery kits online and watch a few youtube tutorials before getting your hands dirty.

Alternatively just book a spot in a nearby Pottery Studio and craft away. 

5. Go On A Private Splatter Paint Date Night

If you want a unique romantic valentine's day, go with a private splatter paint date. You and your significant other will get suited up in protective gear, enjoy a complimentary soft drink, and head into your private splatter room for a creative 1 or 2 hours of colorful splash. Play with the paint and paint whatever you want. Some splatter paint studio service even includes chocolate and champagne for couples.

If you want to try this idea out, search a nearby Splatter Paint Studio and book a spot in advance. You can check out experiencegift to buy a session.

6. Take A Virtual Trip Around The World

Perhaps you’ve been thinking about going on a romantic wine tour in Italy or a relaxing vacation to a far-away beach. Bring those adventures right to your doorstep by organizing a virtual trip with your loved one. Spend this valentine's day roaming around the world without leaving home. To make it more real prepare themed lunch or dinner (e.g Italian or Mexican).

Get a pair of VR glasses and simply enjoy the tour at your home with your partner.

 7. Plan A Romantic Camping Date In The Backyard

You don't want to go far from home? Opt out for a backyard camping date. Set up your tent, hang some string lights, grab a couple of cozy blankets, and triple-insulated mugs with a delicious hot drink.

If you don’t want to go outside, set up a comfortable spot in front of your fireplace. These are simply hustle-free romantic valentine's day ideas for couples.

8. Plan A Takeout Food Feast

For foodies, nothing can be more romantic than having a food feast with their significant other! You don’t need to cook all by yourself if you can’t or don't want to. You can simply order takeout foods. Order all your and your bae’s favorite dishes that you want to try. So that you can taste it all and make it a home food feast.

Your front yard can be a great outdoor spot for the feast but you can do this indoors as well with a little valentine's decor.

9. Go For A Scenic Hike

Choose a beautiful place nearby and take a hike together. Maybe there's already a such a place that you or your partner wanted to go but didn't have spare time for the visit. So cross it off this time. If it’s a waterfall or mountain with a great view that's more befitting for romance!

Remember to check the weather condition beforehand and pack accordingly.

10. Share A Romantic Night Under The Stars

There is something in the stars, right? Nothing says romance like stargazing with your significant one. Share a romantic valentine's night under a beautiful sparkling sky.

You can go camping or simply set up for a few hours at night in a location where you can see the stars. If it's too cold to observe the night sky, then curl up into a blanket together. Or just go to a nearby planetarium for a similar experience.

11. Visit An Amusement Park

Yes I am talking about amusement parks again. Surprisingly, amusement parks have the ability to spark romance and adventure. And it is one of the best valentine's day ideas for couples.

Celebrate this day of valentine in a bustling park where you can eat cotton candy and hotdogs and possibly win a cute teddy bear for each other. Get on a Ferris wheel and ride it up into the sky. Share a lingering kiss surrounded by breathtaking city views and twinkling stars atop!

12. Go On A Picnic

Simply spending time together is amazing on Valentine’s Day. You can pack a picnic lunch and head outside to make your valentine's day special.

You can prepare the lunch with your favorite dishes. Head out to find a quiet spot with your lunch, cozy blankets, pillows, and some valentine's special decorations. Don’t forget the wine and some sweets to make the evening more romantic.

To make most out of it, choose a spot under a tree in the park nearby or along a nearby hiking trail.

13. Make At A Fondue Party

Take a trip back to the 1970s. A fondue party is one of the easy valentine's day ideas for dinner and dessert. You can arrange it anywhere - either at your place or your bae’s.

Fondue is simple to make, and it can be sensual to dip and feed each other different foods. Following a cheese fondue dinner, finish with a decadent chocolate fondue dessert. You can make chocolate-covered strawberries as well as dipping them in other fruits, marshmallows, graham crackers, and other items. Interactive foods can set the tone for a romantic Valentine's Day at home.

If you are thinking about health benefits then check out this healthyish cheese fondue recipe from brewing happiness. 

14. Explore Art Exhibitions Or Museums

Another romantic idea to celebrate this special day is exploring art exhibitions or museums. This one is one of the best valentine's day ideas for couples who love to immerse themselves in appreciating art.

Search if there’s any art exhibition nearby you. You can also go to a museum where you’ve never been with your loved one.

15. Go Bicycle Riding

If you are into nature and a stickler for pollution-free mode of transport then this idea is for you. Nothing beats suiting up and riding your bike through the gorgeous scenery that winter has to offer! It's a great way to spend valentine's day with that particular someone without having to stay inside.

You can go to a place that holds a special meaning to both of you or a favorite location. Ride away or compete with each other, just make the most out of it.

16. Learn And Create Something New Together

Spend this Valentine's Day learning something new. Cooking can be a fantastic idea. Choose a themed dish that neither of you has ever cooked before. Watch cooking videos and cook together. You could also try a fun art project, such as your own canvas painting and wine-tasting night, or other simple arts and crafts. Kits and supplies are readily available online, and tutorials can be found on YouTube or craft websites.

17. Relive Your First Date

If you’ve been in a relationship for a long time (I don't know what a long time is, can be 2 years or 10! Totally upto you), revive your first date on this February 14th with your old memories.

Go to the place you first met, dress up like you did on your first date, and bring the same flowers. Explore all the pictures from your first date to the times you've been spending together and live the moments again.

18. Plan A Mini Getaway

What could be more romantic than a romantic getaway with the one you love?

Consider booking a room in a resort complete with rose petals on the bed, champagne chilled in an ice chip bucket, and a bathtub large enough for two. Staying away from home for a while is an excellent way to spend some much-needed alone time with your significant other.

You can go to the seaside or the mountain as you please. If you can handle the sea, going on a luxury cruise can also be an exciting idea.

19. Take a Dance Lesson Together

Skip the traditional valentine's day dinner ideas and get on your feet for a dance lesson with your partner. Dancing cheek-to-cheek will create sweet memories and get you ready for the next time you're at an event with a lively dance floor. 

You can try this at any local dance studio. Don't forget to make prior reservations.

20. Take a Scenic Long Drive

Ah long drives! Right? Take a romantic drive with your girlfriend/boyfriend this Valentine's Day and get away from home. Getting out of the house and changing your routine is the best way to ensure you dedicate your time and attention to your significant other.

You can chase down a country road or one by the mountain or a lake. But be sure to choose a road with low traffic.

21. Book A Romantic Staycation

If you don't want to leave town, a staycation at a luxurious hotel should top the valentine's day ideas list. It can transport you to another world.

Spending money on a hotel when you can simply stay at home may seem silly. However, staying at a hotel offers the next level of breaks from regular responsibilities and frequently includes amenities such as restaurants, fitness centers, a pool, and a hot tub with spa center. Check into a posh hotel, put on a plush bathrobe, and order some room service.

22. Go Sledding

Winter weather provides the perfect backdrop for sledding with your significant one. And sledding on valentine's day can be a more romantic way to celebrate your love. There’s nothing like the rush of going fast and feeling that weightlessness that you get from gliding. So enjoy the ride with your loved one.

23. Watch A Romantic Play At The Theatre (Or At Home)

Nothing ignites romance like witnessing another couple fall in love! Watch a romantic film in the theater or at home with your significant other. Cuddle up and watch a new or favorite movie. Make fresh popcorn and set up a candy station with all of your favorite movie theater treats.

24. Make Reservations At A Fancy Restaurant

Back to the classic valentine's day dinner ideas. We may try new ideas every year, with unique fits and stuff, but having a romantic valentine's dinner with your loved one always seems special. In the hustle and bustle of your life, it might not be easy coming up with unique ideas. So it’s fine to make a reservation at a fancy restaurant to celebrate a romantic valentine's evening.

25. Plan A Dinner At Home

If you are at my age and don’t want to go out at all, then prepare a romantic valentine's day dinner at home.

They say efforts make things more beautiful. Prepare everything that your special one likes starting from their dishes or decor. Light up some scented candles and get red roses to make the event more romantic. Add a little card saying how much your partner means to you. If you need some help with that, check this article out.

I have to admit valentine's day dinner ideas are always romantic, whether at a restaurant or at home.
