To make the day special for the one who holds your heart, it might feel as if you have to pull out all the stops typical of Valentine’s Day.

This year however, wouldn’t it be fun to mix things up a bit and try something new? If you really want to turn up the charm and make this Valentine’s Day a night to remember, then consider these unique Valentine’s date ideas that will surely blow your sweetie away!

Spice It up with a Comedy Show

Laughter is an important key to a healthy relationship. So this Valentine’s Day, make it an evening to remember with tickets to a sidesplitting comedy show at your local comedy club. The relaxed ambience mixed with witty stand-up, is the perfect date idea for couples who enjoy light-hearted humor in a fun adult-only setting.  Many clubs offer romantic Valentine’s Day packages for guests like dinner prepared by in-house chefs, wine flights and chocolates, and beautifully arranged flowers on a private candlelit table.

Experience the Nautical Side with a Dinner Cruise for Two

Shower your partner with adoration on Valentine’s Day with dinner under the stars aboard a romantic nighttime cruise. A dinner cruise makes an intimate Valentine’s Day date by offering couples an exquisite dining experience with live musical entertainment as you set sail through the bay with your one true love. Many dinner cruise liners offer a variety of Valentine’s Day goodies to make the outing sentimental for each couple including handcrafted flower arrangements, complimentary champagne, and souvenir portraits.

Enjoy a Private Event at an Art Museum

If you really want to wow your sweetie on Valentine’s Day, then surprise her (or him) with tickets to an exclusive Valentine’s event at an art museum in your area. With your admission, you and your date can walk hand-in-hand viewing exquisite art collections with your own personal tour guide. But it doesn’t end there; guests can sip on complimentary champagne, munch on delectable hors d’oeuvres, and dance the night away with live musical entertainment.

See a Concert with Your #1

They say music can bring people together. Maybe that’s how you met your sweetheart? A concert with your other half is a fabulous Valentine’s date that speaks from the heart. Whether you’re seeing her favorite band, his favorite band, or the band that brought you both together, make it even more special by packing a gourmet picnic lunch to eat before the show. Choose a spot where you can be alone like a quiet corner of a nearby park. Make sure to include a blanket, candles, and champagne in your picnic basket-it’s Valentine’s Day after all!
