The Home SPA

Plan a spa night for you and your date. You can get some massage oil, a diffuser and play some light music. Give your date the whole spa feels without going to the spa. Sometimes, all someone wants after a long day is a massage. 

You can even set up a bubble bath to keep the night going and romantic. This won’t cost you much but will show that you really care with all the planning. You can even set up the place with candles and rose petals. Go all out!

Make a Meal at Home 

Valentine's Day 2022 Date Ideas

Restaurants are the usual deal but there is something amazing about someone cooking for you. It shows they care and what’s a better day than Valentine’s Day to show you care about your partner. You don’t need to make something super hard to make. Just pairing pasta and wine can go a long way. Really aren’t a chef you might want to pick up the DIY baskets from a restaurant. A picnic at home without making any food yourself is a great idea as well.

You can also cook together! Try making something new like Sushi you can get the tools on Amazon or at a Home Store.

Ice Skating 

There is nothing more romantic than holding hands and skating away with your date. Go out and have a skate and buy some hot chocolate later. You guys will definitely need to cuddle up to keep warm what better way to warm up is there than human body heat?

Snow Shoeing 

Clean white snow everywhere makes me feel like I am in a romantic movie. Why not take your date to an area where you can snowshoe. You can rent or buy snowshoes. Just because it is winter doesn’t mean you can’t go for a hike. Just make sure to wear snow pants and dress super warm. 

Learn Salsa

Looking for an activity to do but don’t want to leave the house. You can learn salsa at home with your date. Put on a Youtube video and get started. Find the video beforehand and watch it just to make sure it’s something your date will enjoy.

The Getaway

Why not getaway for the weekend. Find a cottage with a hot tub and relax all weekend with some wine. Places like blue mountain might be booked up but you can find a less busy place on Airbnb. Even though there might not be that much to do outside it’s always nice to have a chance of scenery and live somewhere different for the weekend. 

If you are more adventurous you can book some snow mobling, sledding, and skiing for the weekend.
