Calling all last-minute romantics: Have you looked at the calendar and noticed that Valentine’s Day is looming on the horizon, yet have no date ideas?
Don’t panic, because it’s never too late! We’ve put together three unique Valentine’s date ideas to impress your date and create an evening to remember.
1. Get playful with pottery.
As of late, the slow, purposeful practice of mindfulness has been all the rage, so it’s no wonder that everyone’s got the hots for pots. So, whether you and your SO have just started dating, are going steady, or have been together for all 19 seasons of Gray’s Anatomy (i.e, an eternity), a pottery class could be just the ticket. It makes a perfect activity to harness the power of touch, show off your creative side, and enjoy something a little different.
Prefer the thought of a night in this Valentine’s? No problem. There are plenty of easy-to-use home kits on the market for couples who value a more intimate environment.
2. Work on your golf game.
Whether you love it or hate it, golf packs a putt when it comes to last-minute Valentine’s Day dates. Cheap, interactive, and competitive, the sport has welcomed a rise in popularity.
For first dates, mini golf can be a great icebreaker and a refreshing alternative to face-to-face conversation over a dinner table. By removing some of the awkwardness, you’ll be free to practice your swing, add some friendly competition (loser buys the next round of drinks), and get to know your date in a relaxed and informal setting.
3. Make them laugh out loud.
Do you want more laughter in your relationship? Are you looking to turn awkward first-date chuckles into the real thing? Whatever stage you’re at, a comedy club date is a cracking activity for Valentines of all stripes.
What’s more, if, like most people, you value being able to laugh with your future significant other, taking them to a comedy club is a casual way to learn more about their personality and suss out what makes them tick. Some comedy clubs can even be surprisingly romantic too — in fact, you could be forgiven for mistaking one for a trendy neighborhood bar, what with the cozy seating, glowing red lamps, and ambiance galore. What’s not to love?
