8 Unique Valentine’s Date Night Ideas

Unique Valentine's Day Date Night Ideas. Creative Date Ideas for any time of the year from millennial lifestyle blog The Confused Millennial

If you are looking for some creative and unique Valentine’s Day Date Ideas then you’ve come to the right place! Say good-bye to cliche romantic dinners at your local steakhouse and check out these creative, cost-effective, ways to celebrate Valentine’s day.

BONUS: Since these are a little more unique than dinner and a movie, you probably won’t hit up as many crowds either *YAY*

Butttt if you are into movies, I got you covered with my Ultimate List Of Romantic Movies To Watch This Valentine’s Day: A Love Story For Everyone

Go Skating.

Okay, so this is probably the most cliche on the list so let's get it out of the way. People seriously forget about skating! Whether it’s roller skating, ice skating, or rollerblading, just get out there and have fun! Nothing screams romance like the cheesy music and video montage worthy cuteness.

A Themed Dinner Night In.

Instead of just Netflix & chilling, bring the fantasy from your TV screen into your home with either a festive meal, decking out your apartment, playing dress up, or a sexy role play.

My dress is from Free People & Sold Out, but here are a few current faves (affiliate links):

Recreate a favorite memory.

Go back to where you had your first date or your absolute favorite park where you first realized you “loved” the person. Take a little walk down memory lane to give you all the feels.

Bust Out The Bucket List.

We all have those things we *dream* of doing some day. Bust out your bucket lists and look at what you guys could check off together on Valentine’s Day. Maybe renting a sports car for the day? Making the world’s largest pizza? Be in two places at once?

Choreograph a dance routine or make a music video.

Okay, so this is an old video I never thought I would post on the internet. We were prepping for a dance battle (this was not the final version) — I would suggest starting it at the 25-second mark:

Bring your favorite rom-com scenes into reality.

To this day, one of my biggest wishes is to make the paintball scene from 10 Things I Hate About You a reality. I have no idea where you can do paintball like this, but I want to find it and do it!

Set up a scavenger hunt.

Whether you theme it for your relationship milestones or based on romantic spots around your town, a scavenger hunt is always a good idea.

Set up a spa in the home.

Schedule masseuse's to come over. Dim the lights, get some relaxing music playing and throw some essential oils in the diffuser. Top it all off with at home face masks, a bubble bath, and a special dessert.

You can always add to this list and make your own date night jar!

  1. oh. my. god. that video of you two is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE! I immediately want to have a dance party with my boyfriend. I wrote down a few of those ideas– I can’t wait to try them out. 🙂

  2. That video of you dancing was so cute and funny! Ryan and I dance around the house all the time but we’ve never actually choreographed something. Since we just celebrated our 5 year anniversary I’ve been wanting to surprise him with a photo album but maybe I’ll ask him if he wants to work on it together!
