last minute date ideas, look no further!

We have shared many date and romantic ideas for first Valentine's Day to impress your partner and take your relationship ahead. Let's check some Valentine's Day date ideas beyond hugs, kisses, and cuddles to make it more fun and memorable. 


#1 Romantic Dinner at Home: Create a Cozy Culinary Experience

A fun way to relive the past and enjoy the present is to think of a favorite date you went on together; it can even be your first date. All you need to do is recreate it. Add a twist by doing an at-home version of your Valentine's Day date with a bit of extra creativity.

Plan a romantic dinner at home to enjoy each other's company without the crowds of Valentine's Day. Even if one of you guys doesn't have chef-worthy skills, you can still cook a memorable dinner together to enjoy. After all, a special home-cooked meal can be much more romantic than eating at a busy restaurant. 

Baking is another fun way to spend more time with your significant other. You two can bake your favorite meals together and enjoy a romantic candle-lit dinner at home with some soft background music. Get creative with heart-shaped food like Pizza, strawberry pie, eggs in a basket, cupcakes, etc., or take the low-effort route and order food to enjoy at home. 

#2 Outdoor Adventure: Go on With Hiboy 

Get extra creative this year and plan a day or weekend full of activities that don't cost a thing. You can venture to a destination you have never been to on a romantic getaway. You'll leave your comfort zone and have a fabulous time doing it! Go for a bike ride or walk, explore a new area you've always wanted to go to or picnic with sandwiches and snacks. 

Bring along a camera to click snaps of the gorgeous views and enjoy each other's company away from the chaos and rush of the world. The more creative you can get with it, the better.

No destination? No problem. You can check out this article listing 5 Best Trails in California for Electric Scooters or Bike Riders to explore these beautiful trails for adventure using Hiboy's comfortable, stylish, and sturdy products.

Living in a chilly climate, you can still bundle up for a fantastic hike and cuddle up near a fire afterward. Getting out in nature will be so romantic when it's just you and your partner. If you are fortunate enough to live somewhere with warm weather, a couple's bike ride is one of the finest romantic ideas for first Valentine's Day, especially for those newly dating and still getting to know each other.

#3 Virtual Date Night: Get Creative With Online Activities

For long-distance couples, navigating the limits of remote dates can be daunting. Special occasions like Valentine's Day can help couples feel closer, even when they're neighborhoods, hours, or oceans apart. They serve as an excuse to go all out and as reminders to reconnect. Then why don't you plan a virtual date night and get creative with online activities? Here are a few ideas to help you get started with Valentines dates. 

  1. Enjoy a candle-lit meal: You can enjoy a meal together on a video call any day. For Valentine's Day, go all out! Set your living space in a sexy way, with candles, a fancy drink, and dinner. Simply enjoy it like you are in each other's presence. Feel free to use the holiday as an excuse to dress up, too! Don formalwear so you can get in the mood for the occasion. 
  1. Watch a movie together: Watching a movie together is the holy grail of long-distance dates. Since there are so many streaming options and extensions like Teleparty, couples can watch the same movie simultaneously.
  1. Play virtual games: When was the last time you played a game with just the two of you? There are now many virtual games geared toward human connection and getting to know one another. With many of these games geared toward couples, they're perfect for a one-on-one evening and will even help you get to know each other better! 

#4 DIY Spa: Relax and Pamper Together at Home

You need not stress yourself out to plan an intricate evening when you can try some different date ideas, like a DIY at-home spa day for two. A spa of any kind is a great way to relax and feel rejuvenated with your partner. Dim the lights, put the piano music on in the background, and pamper each other. Put on hair masks and foot scrubs, and include massages to leave the date completely relaxed. 

A massage won't occupy your entire day, but you'll feel your best after! Get a bottle of body oil, set the mood with aroma candles, and use relaxing background music. Then, give your partner at least 30 minutes of massage therapy. Everyone comes out of this activity winning, so they can return your favor and thank you in their style. 

a DIY spa is a fantastic date idea that's totally free. You can raid your kitchen for supplies to make DIY face masks or bring out your nail kit for an at-home manicure or pedicure. Also, don't forget to watch your favorite movie or web series and take selfies while you wait for the masks to dry.

#5 Stargazing Picnic: Enjoy a Romantic Evening Under the Stars

Stargazing is one of the most romantic and happening things you can do on Valentine's Day, which is also absolutely free. It is one of the best Valentine's Day date ideas. You won't require a telescope to set up a stargazing date. Instead, head to your backyard with a warm outdoor blanket. You can also use a stargazing app to help identify constellations in the night sky.

When you're stargazing on Valentine's Day, be sure to view the romantic stars and constellations. One of the most popular viewing opportunities during the Valentine's Day stargazing season is a bright red star (a red giant star) commonly called Betelgeuse, or the Valentine's Star.

Search out Betelgeuse in the constellation Orion using a star chart. The Valentine's Star is located off one of the shoulders of Orion and glows red, so it's easier to spot than some other individual stars. 

If you don't have a star chart handy, you can find Orion by locating four bright stars in a rough box-shaped pattern. You'll also see three bright stars at a slight angle in the center. The three stars make up Orion's Belt. The four bright stars forming the box shape represent Orion's shoulders and feet.

#6 DIY Gifts: Impress Your Lover With Handcrafted Gift

Valentine's Day does not necessarily have to be all about presents, but giving and receiving a little token of affection is nice. After all, some awww-worthy gifts can take your relationship a step forward. Instead of spending money on elaborate gifts for each other, opt for something homemade. As one of the last minute date ideas, you could make some personalized gifts for your partner and impress them this Valentine's. 

If giving gifts is your love language, you can send your significant other on a scavenger hunt. Set trails of rose petals and handwritten clues to find their Valentine's Day gift. 

Need some ideas? 

  1. Bake cookies: You can bake your partner's favorite cookies and gift wrap them to make them feel special. 
  1. Make Wind Chimes: You can transform humble cookie cutters into cheery wind chimes, ideal for hanging on the front porch or in the room above the bed.

  1. Valentine's Day Box: Write short affection notes, swoon-worthy love letters, or 100 qualities you like about your partner and what makes them special. Tell them how they make you feel and why you fell in love with them, and put it in your Valentine's Day box. 
  1. Scrapbook. Walking down memory lane is always a great way to reconnect on Valentine's Day. Make a scrapbook with any pictures you have, or print some beforehand and get comfy.
