Three Adventurous Valentine Dates

Photo by Giverslog

1.  Scenic Quest
Make a list of wonderful surroundings like: a beautiful sunset/sunrise, an antique building, a snow or flower-filled landscape, a zoo, swings at the park, or a quaint house/barn. Spend the day finding them and picnic with chili and cornbread in a jar at the love-liest spot.

2.  Breakfast at Tiffany's 
You and your loved one choose five things you've never done before (keep it simple). Spend the day doing them by alternating down your lists. For instance: get a cupcake at the fanciest bakery, lay on the car hood to watch the stars, dance in the middle of the mall, see how many freebies you can gather (popcorn and suckers at the bank, free coffee at hotel), or cuddle on the couch of a furniture store. End the date by watching Breakfast at Tiffany's.

3. Camera Word Search
Find words like LOVE YOU, BEAUTIFUL, TRUE LOVE, BE MINE, VALENTINE on buildings, traffic signs, graffiti and banners around town. The words don't have to be together--the more traveling, the better. (Although you may want to scope out places before date night) Take photos together in front of the words and frame them for an end-of-date gift.


  1. Love, love, love these ideas! I'm printing out this post for future reference =)

  2. Great ideas! Every year my husband and I go to the same restaurant we he proposed, on Valentine's day. We try and sit at the same table. And I smile! :-)

  3. I have a confession
    I have never seen Breakfast at Tiffany's

    there it is
    our for all the world to see....

    fun ideas Catherine

    Love and Light

  4. Ok, this is just totally adorable!

  5. These are fun ideas! thanks for sharing!

  6. These are great ideas!! LOVE the chili and cornbread in the jars with ribbon! too cute!

  7. What fun ideas! I love the idea of making lists of things you've never done. I may just do that next date night. :)

    And so nice to meet you! Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

  8. Tell Cat she had better watch Breakfast at Tiffany's...it's amazing.

    Love your list of things to do! Probably better tell everyone that stealing from dime stores does NOT count. Hee hee.

  9. I'll take #2. I could use a good breakfast...

  10. Love these photographs and ideas, Catherine. I'm ready to create something wonderful now. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  11. sigh. if only my husband liked old movies and cutesy little things to do. I think the only thing on your date ideas list my husband wouldn't roll his eyes at is chili and cornbread, but if I put them in a jar he'd be like... what's with the jars? HA.
    i'm glad you have followed through with coming up with creative dates! they're fun to read :)
