Last Minute Valentine’s Day Ideas
Your significant other will have no idea their Valentine’s Day extravaganza was planned the morning of!
Valentine’s Day is upon us, but don’t panic! If you’re one of those people who successfully managed to avoid every Valentine’s Day related social media post and now realize you completely forgot about the holiday all together, there’s no need to worry! Anything can be pulled together last minute as long as you set your mind to it, and you can still shower your significant other with love on this romantic holiday. The positive side to waiting until the last minute is that you get the chance to break out your creative side – all the chocolate is probably sold out, restaurant reservations filled up, and the store’s card selections are looking rather sparse. The good thing about taking a creative approach is that handmade goods tended to be appreciated more by your loved ones. Knowing someone put in the time, effort, and use of their imagination to make you happy is one of the most romantic gestures of all (and it also leaves you with more cash in your pocket!) If you’re scrambling around last minute to make sure your significant other has the best Valentine’s Day, take a look at these Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Ideas, and score major points for allowing your creative side to take over.

Dinner Date at Home
Treat your significant other to a home cooked meal and go all out! Buy your favorite bottle of wine, create a soothing playlist, and fill the dinner table with candles. After dinner, put your skills to the test and create a delicious dessert neither of you have ever had before, such as Cappuccino Soufflé, and spend the night enjoying each other’s company. A quiet dinner at home is much more romantic than a night out.
There’s nothing better than being pampered, especially on Valentine’s Day. Fill up the tub with a bubble bath, pour some glasses of wine, and spend the night in a relaxing bath followed by massages. You can even find some tutorials on how to make your own facemasks, such as this soothing rose facial mask. Creating something together will bring you closer, and it’s always exciting to try new things.
Want to add a fun competitive twist to your night? Gather together a bunch of different board games and have a game night! Grab some popcorn, a six-pack of beers, and travel back in time to your childhood. Spice things up and place bets, agreeing on something the loser will have to do.
No one can deny that they love cuddling up with their significant other on the couch filling up with snacks and having a movie marathon. This is a perfect and easy way to spend your Valentine’s Day! Agree on a movie to watch, and if you can’t agree, watch two! Pop a bag of popcorn in the microwave, run to the store for some candy, put on your sweats, and spend the entire night snuggled up on the couch together.
A Night of Adventure
It’s hard not to get the overwhelming desire for adventure every once in a while, especially when our lives seem to become so routine. Switch up the overplayed tradition and spend your Valentine’s Day going on an adventure! This can be as easy as trying out a restaurant you’ve never gone to before, going on a nature hike if the weather is permitting, or getting in the car, flipping a coin to figure out which way you’ll turn, and exploring where you end up. The possibilities are endless, and you may just find a new favorite spot to spend your Valentine’s Day.
