If you have ticked off every date night idea in the book—the wine-and-dines, the late night drives, and what not—and are itching for new romantic and completely adorable experiences with your partner, then we’ve got you covered. Date nights can be exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. You want everything to be perfect and memorable for you and your beau. So, here’s a list of date-night ideas that you can plan ahead of Valentine’s Day. From having an extravagant night out, to cosying up and cuddling in bed, we’ve got something for everyone!
Go for a mixology workshop
If you and your partner are taken in by the world of mixology and cocktails, there couldn’t be a better way to celebrate the day of love than with a mixology workshop. Learn to master the art of making cocktails with experts at specially curated workshops across major cities of India including Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru. Become each other’s favourite bartender and enjoy an evening making and tasting cocktails. End it with a candlelit meal by the beach (big heart for this one).
If you’re a lover of all things outdoors and nature, then a romantic night under the stars will be everything magical on Valentine’s Day. Make it an all-out romantic adventure—create a picnic basket with your favourite food, choose some scented candles, bring a mat and blankets, and spend the evening under a sky full of stars. If you want to make it truly special, you can also create a playlist to swoon to or play in the background while you dine under the moonlight. It really doesn’t get more romantic than this, does it?
Go for a drive-in movie
Satisfy the old-school romantic in you by going for a drive-in movie. Cuddle up in the car with some popcorn, blankets, and your boo. Re-watch a film that reminds you of your love and time together and complete the dialogues with each other or watch a new film, and create new memories and experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime.
Go for a trek
For all those couples who enjoy rock-climbing and trekking up steep hills, celebrate your love by going on a trek. You can choose to go for a trail that’s light and easy to have some fun, falls and laughter along the way, or challenge yourselves by taking up a difficult trek. Either way, be sure to take care of your better half, remind them that you love them, that you’ll be there to pick them up when they fall (literally), and more. End the trek with a scenic view of the mountains.
We’re here to tell you that you can have the most adorable date in your pyjamas, at home too! Get cosy and comfortable in your favourite night suit, dim the lights, play some of your favourite music, and take out those baking sheets! Bake cookies, brownies, and more with your loved one and then indulge in those decadent sweets while you watch your favourite movie.
'Cause your loved ones deserve a spotlight, too.
‘Tis the season for rich emeralds, plums, midnight blues, and more.
