12 Hot Valentine’s Day Date Night Ideas
Book a hot reservation (at home).
While cooking together might be something you do every day, there’s no reason it can’t be special. The twist: devise a unique menu that you’ll make together every year on Valentine’s Day (think: all seafood, or an aphrodisiac theme). Start the tradition now and you’ll never have to worry about making last-minute plans in the future.
Vamp it up.
Buy yourself (or your girl) three new lingerie outfits in totally different styles—over-the-top, cutesy, and subtly sexy—and use your shopping spree as an excuse to suggest a predinner fashion show. What guy won’t love his very own Victoria’s Secret fashion show and what girl won’t be touched that her man ventured into a lingerie shop to surprise her?
Watch the sunrise.
Sure you’ve seen the sunset together, but have you checked out how spectacular a sunrise is in the winter? You’ll have to wake up early and bundle up, but it’s worth it. Besides, you can always crawl back into bed and cuddle afterward.
Spice up your bedroom decor.
Redecorate your bedroom to look like a love den. Buy scented candles, luxurious linens, and a few sex toys (we won’t tell).
Begin with each of you writing out five dares—anything from trying on a sexy outfit to something naughty like stripping—on separate pieces of paper. Place them in a bowl. Now take turns asking each other naughty questions such as, “What’s the sexiest fantasy you’ve ever had?” or “What’s the most unusual place you’ve ever wanted to have sex?” If you don’t answer, you have to dip into the pot and select a dare.
Make sure your hands are warm and you have plenty of massage oils on hand. Get naked and take turns giving each other rubdowns. If a happy ending is in order, so be it!
Make chocolate lava cake and feed it to each other (no forks allowed). Mmmm.
Take a bubble bath together, or, if you’re lucky enough to live near a remote pond or lake (in a warm climate…no hypo-thermia, please!), go skinny-dipping by moonlight.
Play Three Things.
Each think of three sexual things you’ve always wanted to try and write them down on separate pieces of paper. These are folded, marked with your initials to identify them, and mixed up. Then take turns drawing out one of the other’s wishes, agreeing in advance to at least give it a try.
Buy new lampshades for the bedroom—something dark and mysterious that lets in little light and induces a romantic vibe. Or swap out your regular bulbs for soft pink ones that cast a sexy glow.
Do some dirty dancing.
Burn a CD with tunes from your dating days and include your first dance (or favorite) song. Hint: Pull down your shades before things get too steamy.
with a steamy finish line. Sure, it’s cold outside, but all those endorphins pumping through your veins will pay off in a hot, two-person shower later.
