A Movie Marathon

For: The couple who wants to avoid the crowds

If you have no interest in venturing out into the world on Valentine's Day, plan a date that lets you and your homebody partner celebrate each other in comfort. An elaborate movie night with a delicious dinner, yummy chocolates, romantic candles and plenty of blankets to make your cuddle session extra cozy allows you to focus on each other for the evening without stressing out about the V-Day crowds.

 

A Night at a Museum

For: The classy couple

If you want to do something extra classy on Valentine's Day, but you want it to be a little more interesting than a simple sit-down dinner, a night touring a museum is the perfect way to switch things up. It allows you and your partner to participate in something new and exciting, and it keeps you up and about for the whole evening. End it with a nice dessert and you've got yourself a romantic evening that's sure to make your Valentine's a day to remember.

 

A Copycat First Date

For: The couple who really wants the romance

If you're looking for a Valentine's Day that's all about celebrating the love between you and your S.O., you've got to plan a particularly sentimental date. And what's more nostalgic than recreating your very first outing? Whatever you happened to do on your first date, try repeating it for your Valentine's Day plans. It allows you and your S.O. to spend time together, and it will have both of you reminiscing on the exciting early days of your romance.

Roller Skating

For: The couple who wants to stay active

Even if you adore romance, sometimes the classic Valentine's Day dates sound a little too stagnant for couples who like to stay moving. For those active pairs, roller skating is an ideal way to celebrate. It's sporty and exciting, but it also has a nice dose of romance. Zooming around the rink hand-in-hand with your S.O. is sure to give you all those happy V-Day feelings, without making you yawn from boredom.

 

An Indoor Picnic

For: The couple who's saving money

Even if you like the classic Valentine's Day dates, the hard truth is that they can be really expensive. If you're a couple who's looking to save money, skip the overpriced restaurant and have your own romantic dinner at home. An indoor picnic allows you and your love to add a dose of romance to your meal, and it's much more private than a crowded restaurant, anyway.

 

A Scavenger Hunt

For: The couple who wants to have fun

If you're looking for more fun than romance in your Valentine's Day, a scavenger hunt can be the perfect way to add a dose of enjoyable entertainment to the evening. Set up a list of fun tasks for your S.O., and have the final destination be a nice dinner with you or a sweet gift. It keeps your night lighthearted, but it still requires enough effort to show your person that you care.

Have a Snow Day

For: The couple who's bogged down by the weather

Considering the snowy weather, any kind of Valentine's Day plan that requires braving the outdoors might seem like a little too much work. In that case, make the weather work in your favor. Rather than a classic V-Day date, plan a fun snow day with your S.O. Go sledding, make a snowman, have a snowball fight—basically, design an evening that centers around the chilly weather. After you've exhausted yourselves with all your snow day fun, you can end your night snuggled up by the fire digging into all your Valentine's Day chocolates.

 

A Game Night

For: The couple who isn't that romantic

If you and your S.O. don't really consider yourselves romantic people, an over-the-top evening of flowers and chocolates will probably just make you uncomfortable. A game night, on the other hand, gives you a chance to spend quality time together without all the bells and whistles. Get out your favorite games, grab a box of chocolates and settle in for a night of competition and fun.

 

An At-Home Spa Night

For: The couple who wants to treat themselves

Valentine's Day can a stressful holiday, especially if there's too much pressure on having the perfect evening. If you and your S.O. really just want to chill out, unwind together by planning an at-home spa night. Grab your favorite sheet masks and foot scrubs and spend the evening watching TV and pampering yourselves. Not only will you spend time together, but you'll also feel refreshed and rejuvenated—talk about killing two birds with one stone.
