8 Alternative Date Ideas

Whether you love or loathe Valentine’s Day, it’s a great time to get creative about your date ideas and plan something different for you and your love, you and your friends, or you solo! Here are some alternative date ideas to inspire you for Valentine’s Day, your next anniversary, or just a casual Saturday together.

1. Plant some herbs. Having some fresh, organic, self-grown herbs in your home can bring a splash of green to your house and your plate. Plus, it’s a fun activity to do together, getting your hands dirty and watching nature grow.

2. Take a sound bath together. There’s no better way to unwind than with a meditative sound bath. Check out some options on YouTube, light some candles, hold hands, and get lost in a meditative state of relaxation.

3. Roll some sushi together. Making sushi is a hands-on experience that takes a little patience, so plan a night in, get your favorite fresh ingredients and enjoy the process of slow preparation as you enjoy each other’s company.

4. Volunteer together. There’s nothing like seeing how your loved one cares for others to help ignite your love for them. Find a cause you’re both passionate about and schedule a couple of volunteer hours to make your community a better place and your relationship all the stronger.

5. Read your favorite books together. Sometimes the best dates are the ones where we can do something we love in the presence of our loved one. Grab a warm beverage and your favorite books and sit in a cozy nook together, reading and sharing.

6. Create some crafts together. Paint, create and craft – pick up a couple of supplies at your local art store and spend a cozy night in, allowing your creativity to take hold. Don’t forget to put some nice music and candles on in the background.

7. Walk in nature together. Summer and winter time is magical in our area. If it’s cold, wrap up warm and bring a thermos with warm tea inside to enjoy at the end of your walk in nature. Breathe the fresh air deep into your lungs and take in the beautiful surroundings Boulder has to offer.

8. Create a tapas night together. Often meals are a time of necessity, where you eat what you need and get on with your day. For date night, take the time to create a beautiful tapas board together filled with your favorite snacks and spend the evening chatting and nibbling at the dinner table.
