Check out your local events or if your favorite venue is currently closed, find a live stream from a favorite artist for a night of letting loose in your living room.

3. A Road Trip With Your Partner

Jump in the car, turn up the tunes, and head to places you’ve never been for a fun day trip. It's a great chance to talk and reconnect or get to know each other better. Don't forget to include and key up the perfect Valentine's Day playlist.

4. Plan a Rom-Com Movie Night

Sometimes, there's no better plan than staying at home with your partner and enjoying a relaxing movie night. As the perfect Valentine's Day idea by Colour Republic, staying in and adding take-out food and a bottle of wine, and cuddling up in front of the TV might just be the most adorable plan you've been looking for.

5. Organize a Nature Walk or Stroll Through the Park

We all know how nature can actually heal and calm you down very quickly. If you've been feeling a little stressed or overwhelmed, make sure to include this plan as one of your Valentine's Day favorites because being outside has so many health benefits—and it's a bonus when you can find a beautiful view for two.

7. Catch the Sunset

Meet up right after work to watch the sunset — the perfect view for those who love love. Then stay and stargaze once the sun goes down.

8. Fire Up a Bonfire

As one of the top 15 Valentine's Day date ideas, firing up a bonfire is an excellent and romantic idea as well! Grab marshmallows, chocolates, and s'mores, then spend the night cuddling by the fire.

9. A Date With Yourself

Valentine's Day is also about treating yourself as much as you treat and love others. Schedule the ultimate ‘treat yourself’ day to show your love — for yourself. Get your favorite lunch, and a mani-pedi, and lastly, stop for your favorite coffee or dessert.

10. Cook a Romantic Dinner

Pick up all the ingredients and cook something new together. Take the 'wow factor' up a notch by dressing up and decorating your dining room.

11. Have an Indoor Picnic

It can be dressy or casual. And the weather can’t freeze out your plans when you're dining on the floor of your living room. Don't forget the checkered blanket, chocolate-covered strawberries, and of course, roses.
