Valentine’s Week Day Three: Date Ideas

Well, I am back with Day Three of Valentine’s Week!
I’ll be honest, I had all days prepared except for Day Three it seems…I wasn’t sure what to write about! BUT, Anthony saved my butt with today’s topic. So, thank you Hubby if you’re reading this. Anyways, I know some of you are probably struggling on coming up with Valentine’s Day plans and trust me, I’ve been there. So, here are a few ideas to help you make your ultra special Valentine’s Day plans!
imageSo, the original idea for this post was to do more local things but I feel like it’s best to appeal to everyone! Therefore, I know these ideas may seem quite obvious, but I’ll try to find ways to spruce it up a bit..
image_1This is definitely a class idea if you’re having trouble thinking of date plans. There are always new movies out in theaters and recently my favorite has been “Frozen”…it’s become an obsession actually. BUT! You could totally spruce this up by going to a restaurant you’ve never been and try something adventurous together, go to a drive in movie (yes, they do exist still), or do an extra special dinner at home with the candles to make it much more personal and romantic…and you can be sure that you’re going to love what you’re eating. If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, try going to an earlier movie as matinées tend to be cheaper than late night movies. You could also enjoy a romantic dinner and movie in, just go to your local Red Box and have a blast! (That’s typically mine and Anthony’s route…)
image_2Nothing says “I Love You” more than Chinese Takeout. I’m serious! Just imagine eating your favorite food out of a takeout container while being all snuggled up by your significant other. All the giggle fits and hey, go ahead and make it romantic with candles! If you really want to, go ahead and pull up Netflix and watch some crazy documentaries or watching some romantic chick flicks or Bob’s Burgers. Maybe even play some video games? This is a really cute and budget friendly way to spend your Valentine’s Day especially if you’re not the type of couple who go out often. Anthony and I do this A LOT and it’s become one of our favorite ways to plan a date…order Chinese food and relax at home. You don’t have to get dressed up, you don’t have to drive (unless you live where I do and they don’t deliver), and you can stay up as late as you want or even go to bed early.
image_3YES, I’M SAYING IT: VIDEO GAME DATES SHOULD BE MORE ACCEPTABLE. If you and your loved one enjoy playing videos from time to time…or a lot, this is perfect for you. FORGET LEAVING THE HOUSE. Just set up the game consoles, break out the 3DS or PSP and just play your favorite video games. Mario Kart, Tekken, Mortal Kombat, Soul Calibur, Animal Crossing, Mario Party, Cooking Mama are just a few games that you and your Valentine can delve in to, but beware! With such gaming comes great responsibility. Well…actually, just be aware that your competitive side may come out regardless of such a special day and there may or may not be consequences to that. So, I told you ahead of time! But pair this up with takeout or a home-cooked meal and there’s a lovely little home date for you both!
image_4Well, if you’ve been together for a while and you’re feeling pretty steady in your relationship, you may want to go ahead and take that next step…PROFESSIONAL PHOTO SESSION. What’s more romantic than getting all dressed up and made up and heading to your favorite spot to take some romantic photos? This is probably a more pricier idea unless you know someone or got a killer deal. But, it’s always fun to have pictures of the both of you in your element. This is also a fun and exciting way to do a surprise proposal! YEP. I said it. Anyways, try to make the photos personal to you whether it’s by making dorky faces, bringing crazy props or delicious food, or sharing a brand new personal experience such as an engagement.

Well, I hope you all enjoyed this post. I’m going to filming for the last two days (hopefully) tomorrow! Let me just say that doing an entire week of new posts has proven difficult, but I took the challenge and I hope I am doing okay so I would love to hear your thoughts thus far now that we are at the halfway point! Go ahead and comment below on how you think I am doing or if you want to share some unique date ideas for Valentine’s Day!

Always remember to enjoy the rest of your week, stay safe, stay warm and bundled up wherever you are, and remember that confidence makes you beautiful!
Thanks for Reading~! ❤
With Love,
Taylor Rae
