Creative Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

Happy Valentine’s Day, guys! It’s been several years since Mackenzie and I have had the chance to go on a proper V-Day date – on the actual day at least. Before Honor was born we’d always be in New York for Fashion Week running around like crazy from shoots to events, so we’d usually just grab a pizza or glass of wine sometime between all the madness (which was honestly still really fun!). Last year we were brand new parents of a one-month-old, so we kept it low profile and stayed home. This year though, we plan on getting a baby sitter and going out with friends (watch my stories to see what we do!). But it got me thinking about how to have fun on Valentine’s Day without going overboard on spending too much money or time planning it. Here are some creative Valentine’s Day dates if you need some last minute ideas for tonight, whether you just started dating someone or have been together for years. Cheers!

Take A Cooking Class
Mackenzie and I love to cook (well, mostly I love when Mackenzie cooks!), but we’ve never taken a cooking class together. I think it would be so fun (and very different from what we normally do on a night out) to learn how to make sushi or something else outside the box. Cooking classes are also great for people who are on one of their first dates as it’s a casual, fun setting – they’re usually group classes, and beer/wine is often included if you need a little courage.

Go Ice Skating
At this time of year (even in sunny LA, believe it or not) there are often ice rinks set up in many cities. If there’s one in your town take your date, hold hands, and skate around for a bit, before heading off to get hot chocolate to warm up (or red wine, if that’s more your speed). It can be super a romantic date in the middle of Winter.

Karaoke
If you want something a bit more lively, you can never go wrong with karaoke. It’s cheap and hilarious – but probably better for couples who have been dating a little while, so you can really let loose and not be self-conscious about sounding ridiculous… a fun idea for a group of you.

Go On A Scavenger Hunt
Mackenzie set up a scavenger hunt for me once years ago, and it was the funniest, cutest thing ever. He left everything from silly notes to a pizza and a piñata – all around the house which led me to a final one telling me that he loved me (which was the first time he said it!). But honestly, you could do this all over your city if you really want to get creative with your love. Take them to fun and meaningful landmarks that pertain to your relationship, like the place you went on your first date, where you met, etc.

Salsa Dancing Lesson
I’ve always wanted to take a salsa lesson with Mackenzie but we have yet to do it! With his sense of humor, I can imagine it being a hilarious affair. If you want a date that’s silly, a bit casual, and lots of fun – try a salsa lesson, or if you’re brave enough to just go for it – a night out at a salsa club!

The More The Merrier
Any of these dates can be made extra fun with friends involved. While Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity for couples to spend quality time together, if you’re like Mackenzie and me – it’s also a great time to have a fun night out with friends. Since we work together and see a lot of each other during the week (and our regular date nights), we have no problem inviting a handful of friends out with us on a group date. More often than not, it always turns into a night to remember.

How will you guys be spending Valentine’s Day this year? Tell me below!

xx,

  • Leaving these 2 nutters for the weekend, as I head to Atlanta for an AWESOME hosting job!! And who knows what daddy-daughter will get up to...
I wanted to thank you ALL for such kind messages and questions about Honor earlier this week. She had a bad fall, unfortunately on her face, and damaged her tooth, with lots of swelling and bruising. I was over an hour away, and will never forget the sick feeling in my stomach driving back in the dark. However, she is a brave little girl, and has been a star throughout, barely complaining even when I brush her teeth. She is doing so much better each day and as you can see, hasn’t lost her sense of humour 💕
