1. Cooking Up Love: A Culinary Adventure for Two!

They say the way to a person's heart is through their stomach, and studies prove it! Surprise your sweetheart with a cooking class at delightful places like It's Your Kitchen, Aroma, LK Culinary, and more. The joy of mastering new dishes together will not only make you a better cook (which your partner will appreciate), but can be a lot of fun and give you bragging rights to friends, when you show up with the Croque en Bouque aka Cream Puff Tower, at their next party.

Whether it's a delightful surprise or a joint venture, this hands-on experience adds a flavorful spark to your relationship. Get ready to prove the age-old adage right – the way to a man's and woman's heart really IS through their stomach!

2. Starry-Eyed Stroll: A Budget-Friendly Celestial Adventure!

Go on a pocket-friendly date night by taking a stroll through town. Or, head to a nearby park with a blanket, cozy up with some fruit and sandwiches, and gaze at the night sky. Embrace the magic of the cosmos as you spot constellations and share jokes and dreams under a blanket of stars. Bring a game, if you like playing together.

If you're into star-gazing and want to make it more interesting, download an app on your mobile device to help you identify what you are seeing. Consider Sky Guide for Apple devices or SkyView Lite on Google Play.

3. Frosty Trails: A Winter Hike for Nature Lovers!

For those who prefer a chilly experience, Frosty Trails offers the perfect winter adventure. Bundle up and explore scenic trails together, surrounded by the crisp beauty of winter. 

With clear skies and a snowy wonderland, the tranquility of nature provides a picturesque backdrop for shared moments and promises breathtaking views. It's also an opportunity to connect with each other and the great outdoors. Oh, and if you’re thinking of popping the question this Valentine’s Day (no pressure, really), this is a great opportunity to do it! Call on some friends in advance and ask them to be strategically (and invisibly) hidden to capture the moment on camera.

4. Whimsical Wanderlust: A Spontaneous Getaway for Two!

Embrace the thrill of the unknown by booking a random, surprise Airbnb to getaway from it all. Get out of your comfort zone a little bit and go somewhere new and unique. We recommend a cozy Airbnb, like Olde House in Wylie, TX, where you can immerse yourselves in the roaring '20s and imagine yourself living in the Golden Era together for an evening or two.

Make the trip unforgettable by exploring hidden gems around town. Try the local cuisine, walk the town park, take photos at the cool bridge, and create some memories in a place where you wouldn't normally have a chance to.

5. Memory Lane Movie Night: A Cinematic Journey Through Your Love Story!

Or... don't leave at all! Transform your living room into a personal movie theater with Memory Lane Movie Night. Create a playlist of movies that you both love and take turns watching through them.

Grab the blankets, plan some of your favorite snacks and drinks. Then, revisit your personal greatest hits.

PS… consider combining this idea with an online cooking class at home! Create your own delicious snacks together ahead of time and indulge in them while you settle down for your first romantic comedy.

Valentine’s Day: Out With the Usual and In With the Unusual and Unexpected
