So you don’t have any Valentine’s Day plans…

February 12, 2013


Valentine’s Day is a hard one. Do you want to give in to the commercialization of love, or do you want to take a stand a prove that true love should be celebrated everyday?
Either way, you’re going to need some descent date ideas that are cheap and easy to pull off.

1. At-home beer or wine tasting
How is this not a great idea? Grab your steady and head over to Pilgrims for some awesome beer and wine selections. Fill up a custom six-pack with new brews (or grab a couple unfamiliar vintages) and sample them. It’s even more fun to tap (hehe) into your inner beer/wine snob and describe their many flavors.

2. Take a cooking class
Love and food are closely related, at least in my opinion. Before you two create your own Dutch Oven of Love, learn how to make a new dish you’ve always wanted to try. Whether it’s taking a class from Gourmet Way or just printing a recipe from Pinterest, uncork a bottle of wine and make dinner together. Maybe some of the wine will even end up in your food.

3. Get outside
So I know all those cheesy Nicholas Sparks movies play into the stereotypes of dating and romance. But did you ever stop and consider that we have the makings of a romance novel in our own backyard? Take your honey boo boo down to the lake for a romantic stroll under the stars. Grab some hot cocoa and sit on the lifeguard tower just talking and staring out over the lake. If you’re really smooth, you’ll whip out your iPhone, play your favorite song and dance high-school-prom-style. Just a thought.

So what are you doing for Valentine’s Day? You better get to it!
