Sitting down to dinner or watching a movie on the couch together at home can be a sweet way to spend Valentine’s Day. But if you’re looking to switch things up this year, there are plenty of other options that will liven up the day.

We’ve put together this guide to help you think outside of the box and put a little more thought into your Valentine’s Day celebrations and gift ideas that will earn you the tick of approval from your Valentine. And if you’re not comfortable going to restaurants and attractions, many of these ideas can be pre-purchased for a future date night.

Valentine’s Day ideas

1. Book a romantic weekend away

Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, which couldn’t be better timing.

Spend your mini-getaway in the pool, the spa and your room without ever having to worry about making the bed or washing dishes.

The next morning, indulge in breakfast in bed or head to a new spot for brunch.

2. Indulge in a couples massage

Schedule in an hour or two of total relaxation with your date without needing to return the favour.

You’ll still get all the brownie points of helping them unwind without having to lift a finger.

If you’re up for a challenge, try something new like a hot stone or Thai massage.

3. Cook up some love

Shop local and head to your nearest market for all the ingredients you’ll need to make a romantic, home-cooked meal. Or, take some notes from the experts at a couples cooking class where you can learn to make authentic Italian, Spanish, Moroccan, Indian or French dishes.

4. Test out your mixology skills with a cocktail experience

Cocktails go hand in hand with a good dining experience, so why not stretch out the celebrations on Valentine’s Day by heading out on a cocktail tour or tasting before your Valentine’s Day meal, or opt for an experience that has a dining element included?
