True or false: You can spend the best Valentine’s Day together without overspending on the traditional Valentine’s Day dates. We’d have to say this one is… TRUE! Skip the overdone dinner and a movie and plan a thoughtful and creative date that your special someone is sure to love. Here are 10 creative date ideas to help you think outside of the box this Valentine’s Day!
Date #1: A Scavenger Hunt
Get out of the house by creating a custom scavenger hunt that is personalized to your relationship. Visit the place you shared your first date, their favorite spot in town, the best view of the city, and other places they’re sure to love. A gift this thoughtful will without a doubt beat a crowded restaurant on Valentine’s Day!
Date #2: Dinner For Two from Market Street
Plan a romantic dinner for two by placing your order with Market Street Concierge. We will prepare a beautiful prime rib dinner for two or an exquisite salmon dinner for two. While you’re there, pick up their favorite flowers and a bottle of wine to create a 5-star restaurant experience straight from your home.
P.S. You can also order floral arrangements online! Browse here.
Date #3: At-Home Wine Tasting
Set up your very own wine tasting event from your kitchen! Pick up 3-5 bottles of wine that are new to you, some cheese and cracker pairings, and create a vineyard-inspired tasting. Next, you will describe the wines to each other (the best you can!) and rank them from your favorites to least favorites.
Date #4: Dinner and a Movie
You may think this is the same overdone date idea we previously mentioned, but no – not quite! For this date, you will bring the dinner and movie to the comfort of your own home.
Date #5: Dessert Making
Is there anything sweeter than Valentine’s Day desserts? Find a couple must-try recipes and pick up all of your ingredients from your local Market Street or order online. The next step is pretty simple: just turn your kitchen into a world-class chocolatier!
Date #6: Camp Out in the Backyard
Set up a fire and tent and turn your backyard into an outdoor campsite out in the wilderness. Pick up a bag of marshmallows, box of graham crackers, and Hershey’s chocolate for endless s’mores under the stars. This date night is perfect for those adventure-lovers who haven’t been able to visit their favorite camping site lately.
