Yep, you heard that right, Take me on a hot date! I speak for a lot of us ladies when I say we want to get taken out on a hot, fun, romantic date. Now this isn’t all the time, but most of us like getting all dolled up and spoiled from time to time.
Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday so you have 2 options on when you COULD celebrate, February 14, OR February 15-17. (Or you can celebrate all weekend long)
I have compiled some date night ideas for your guidance, planning, and honestly, just to help you out brother because I know us ladies tend to be a wee bit difficult. SO LADIES, send this blog post to your man, don’t say I’ve never helped you out ;)

Change it up a little, instead of dinner and drinks, do something maybe a little different, something fun, or something exciting. Here are some idea’s; (all suggestions are linked to better help navigate)
KEEP IT LOW-KEY
If you don’t like crowds, you don’t want to really be out and about, I get it. Here are some ideas you can do instead;
Hotel - Hotels typically have restaurants and they have room service! Keep it romantic and rent a room for the night, have a mini stay-cation. One day stay-cation, relaxing and just enjoying your time together.
Steak night at home - This is one of my favorite things. I love a homemade steak. Either make or buy some chocolate covered strawberries, get all your steak night necessities and have a romantic meal at home.
Cook with your partner - The point of Valentine’s is to spend the day with your loved one. Order a blue apron box or Hello fresh and have it delivered for the day you plan to celebrate. Cook the meal TOGETHER!
Picnic - Get your picnic basket ready and go out for a nice, sweet picnic. Go to the park, bring your blanket, and spend quality time together while eating snacks, meals, or whatever you like.
