Valentine’s Day: 10 Alternative Ways to Celebrate

Valentine’s Day can be romantic but it requires planning if you want it to be as special as you envisaged. A dinner date is always a winner but it’s nice to do something a bit different too, so we’ve listed some alternative ideas for Valentine’s Day below. 

1. Salsa Dancing

Show off your moves or learn some new ones. Latin dance is known to be romantic so it might ignite some passion! A great choice for a second or third date. 

2. Chocolate Making Workshop

Valentine’s Day and chocolate are an ideal match so why not treat your valentine to a chocolate making experience. 

3. Karaoke 

This is a chance to serenade your beloved with your favourite romantic song – or to give your rendition of Dancing Queen! A fab night out for a couple or take some friends and double-date.

4. Paint & Sip Class

If you or your partner are creative types then a paint and sip class could be for you! Enjoy a glass of vino while you produce your masterpiece. Painting tips are given so you don’t have to be an expert. 

5. Comedy Show

6. Pottery Date Night

Ever wanted to recreate the pottery scene from Ghost? Learn how to throw pots together and make a special memento to keep. If you don’t want to get that messy, you could paint the pottery instead. Decorate and chat while sipping a glass of bubbly.

Feeling inspired by Dancing On Ice? Put your skates on and show your date how you glide, even if it is while holding on to a penguin! 

8. Movie Night

If you can’t get a babysitter or you just fancy a night in together, create a special movie night atmosphere. A nice touch would be to make a movie ticket for your other half. Pick your favourite movie or boxset, upgrade your snacks and open a bottle of champagne. Oh, and don’t forget to put your phone on silent!
