Earth Friendly Valentine's Date Ideas
Valentines Day is one week away, and if you’re like me, you can’t believe it’s already February, and may be in need of a fun activity to do on February 14th. So, I’ve curated a list of my top 10 best Valentines (or Galentines) adventures you can try next week!
1. SCAVENGER HUNT IN THE CITY
Design your own scavenger hunt! I did this for my husband’s birthday one year, and it was such a fun way to spend time together. You can keep it simple or make it as extravagant as you like ~ you make the rules! All you need is a piece of paper, a pen and an open mind.
2. BAKE OFF!
Pick an extravagant vegan dessert each, and bake together! Whoever makes the best treat wins. What they win is up to you (free massage perhaps?)
3. SNACKS + MOVIE NIGHT
Make some vegan snacks, create the coziest nook in your home (maybe even make a fort) and watch a romantic comedy, or drama, or thriller, whatever you like.
Chocolate Marshmallow popcorn ~ air-popped popcorn, dandies marshmallows & vegan chocolates
Vegan banana split ~ bananas, coconut ice cream, cocoa nibs, raspberries
Vegan chocolate hearts ~ coconut oil, honey, cacao powder. combine & freeze them in heart ice cube trays.
4. CLASSIC DINNER DATE
Need I say more? Pick your favourite restaurant or try something new.
5. ICE SKATING
Find an outdoor rink or your local community centre.
6. DANCE CLASS
Salsa, ballroom, hip hop, etc. pick a fun class, maybe even make it a surprise, and have fun blowing off some steam.
7. COMEDY SHOW
Comedy shows are always so much fun. Check your local comedy mix and see what’s playing.
8. SPA DAY [AT HOME OR THE REAL DEAL]
Book yourselves a massage and hit up your local spa. Alternatively, you can buy yourselves face masks and give each other massages.
9. Make ART
Get creative while enjoying a glass of wine (or mocktail). You can do this at home or depending on where you live, attend a Paintnite (they now offer more than just painting).
10. DINNER + WINe [at home]
Treat yourself to a fancy bottle of wine and make dinner together. Choose a new recipe or an old classic and spend quality cooking time together.
