Valentine’s Day is almost here! Are you stumped on what to do on that special day with your Valentine? If you’re looking to do something different this year, we have 5 not-so-typical Valentine’s Day date ideas for you…

1. Take a ballroom dancing class:

Why go have dinner at a crowded restaurant which may kill the romantic vibe when you can be in your Valentine’s arms, dancing the night or day away? Even better, if you aren’t a skilled dancer, a ballroom dancing class will offer you lessons on how to get your two-step right. This is fun and a great way for you and your partner to connect and feel romantic. Use Google and Yelp to find dancing lessons in your area.

2. Zombie-Shooting Experience at NYZ Apocalypse:

Everyone we know watches The Walking Dead and if you’d like your own zombie experience and are in the New York City area, you and your Valentine can experience that at NYZ Apocalypse. They are also currently running a deal on Groupon where you pay $40 for an experience for 2 (regularly $60). It’ll be a Valentine’s Day you’ll never forget.

3. Spa Day For Two:

You both may be stressed out from your daily life stuff so why not use Valentine’s Day as a way to not only spend some one-on-one time with your Valentine but also de-stress and relax? A spa can benefit you both and will put you in that relaxed, romantic mood for Valentine’s Night. Check Living Social or Groupon for special deals in your area.

4. Hire a private chef to cook dinner at your home:

With many private chefs on Youtube and Instagram showcasing their culinary skills, hiring a private chef is not as expensive or hard as you may think. If you are in the DC area, check out Chef Mookie Hicks on Facebook here and in the NYC area, Darius Williams of Darius Cooks on Facebook here. You can also Google ‘private chef‘ and find one in your area as well as search for ‘chef’ on Instagram.
