Valentine's date ideas for anyone


Deciding what to do with your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day can be hard, but it doesn’t have to be. Here are a few things to do with your sweetheart, by yourself or with friends on Valentine’s Day.

Cook together

Food is always a given for any date. Instead of spending a lot of money on dinner and a tip, pull out a cook book and make dinner together. It’s a great bonding experience.

Dessert only date

Why pay for the whole meal when desert is the best part? Make dinner at home and go out to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Scavenger hunt

Send your loved one on a scavenger hunt using memories and creative methods leading to wherever you wish to meet to spend the evening.


Whether it is video games, card games or board games, a little friendly competition is good for any relationship.

Campus events

There are a lot of things happening on campus for Valentine’s Day, if you're at a loss for what to do, check them out.

Long-distance relationships can be hard to. Try these cute things to surprise loved ones.

Send a gift

Just because a date in-person may not be possible doesn't mean that they can’t get a gift. Sending flowers and care packages full of their favorite things is sure to make their heart swoon. Even letters show you care.

Deliver food

Can’t bring them dinner? Have dinner brought to them — it's the perfect excuse to order one of those heart-shaped Papa John's pizzas.

Skype movie

So going out to the movie theater is not possible. That is what technology is for. Pull up video chat and sync the Netflix movie. It will be as if you are together.

Surprise visit

If they don’t know you’re coming, showing up unexpected will win the night.

No sweetheart? No problem.

A day with friends is better than a day of watching romance movies and eating Ben & Jerry's in bed.


Make your heart happy by helping someone else.

Buy yourself that food

Your favorite restaurant has a special going on? It’s heart shaped? Treat yourself. Buy that heart-shaped food and enjoy it all to yourself! More for you, anyway.
