Non Cliché Valentine’s Day Ideas

Can you guys believe that Valentine’s Day is NEXT WEEK? That’s right, February 14th is on Tuesday and that means it’s time to shower your loved one with love and gifts (check out my gift guide here!) and plan the perfect date. But if you’re doing things last minute and haven’t made a dinner reservation yet, don’t you worry! I’ve got you covered. Here are some non-cliché Valentine’s Day ideas that will blow your boo’s socks off:

Instead of dinner and a movie… 

Make a gourmet meal at home and surprise him/her with a cheap flight to somewhere you’ve never been. You can always find great deals on Skyscanner and Hopper. Who doesn’t love going somewhere new?

Instead of roses and chocolates… 

Okay, you can get the roses and chocolate (no girl will ever be mad at you) but how about doing a cute picnic to accompany that?

Instead of that stuffed teddy bear… 

Get a cute Instax camera and take cute pictures of your date! (Or if you prefer your iPhone, check out this cool printer that prints your phone photos onto a polaroid.) They’ll be memories both of you will cherish forever. 

Instead of champagne…

Just kidding! You should always have champagne on Valentine’s Day! My two favorites are this one and this one.

So use these ideas and get planning! And if all else fails, click here for some gift ideas for her and for him.
