Valentine’s Day is a time for you and your partner to feel a little bit of romance, and to focus on all the things you love about each other!Log Out
No matter how long you have been together, or how old your children are, take this one night a year to spend some quality time together.
Coming up with ideas on what to do on Valentine’s Day can be difficult! To help you out, here are the best valentine’s date ideas for parents.
Order Your Favourite Takeout
Times can be tough, and ordering your favourite takeout might not be a common occurrence. If you are at home with the kids, or just at home together for the evening, why not order in your favourite takeout as a treat! Whether it be sushi or a gourmet burger bar, you deserve a night off from cooking and some good food!
You could also order each person’s favourite meal. It might be a bit of an effort picking up meals from different takeout’s and restaurants, but it is one night a year to do something special!
Go For A Walk In The Park
Sometimes, a simple walk in the park at night can be the most romantic thing. This is especially true if you have a park close by, which is near coffee shops and restaurants. You could go for a romantic stroll, and stop to pick up some dessert on the way.
After all, Valentine’s Day is about celebrating your partnership, and a simple stroll might be the best way for you to reconnect.
Put Some Music On
A little music always brings up the mood. At home with the family, or on your own when the kids are at a babysitter, you should put some music on to dance to.
You and your partner can play some romantic music to slow dance to in the lounge, and even slip your wedding song in there too!
To include the kids, you could turn off the lights, put on some dancing songs, and buy glow-in-the-dark sticks and paints to turn it into a Valentine’s party. It might not be your traditional Valentine’s Day celebration, but it will definitely be one to remember.
Go For A Romantic Dinner
This is a classic valentine’s date that never gets old. As a parent, you would know how rare a romantic night out for dinner can be!
For this, you will need to plan ahead and get a babysitter for the evening or have the kids go stay with the family that night.
Choose your favourite restaurant or one which you have been wanting to try. Remember to book in advance, it is a popular night for people to eat out, so bookings might be scarce!
Take your time to get dressed up and feel your best. Why not grab some ice cream on the way home to finish the night off?
Cook A Gourmet Meal Together
Spending time together in the kitchen is great, and to save money and involve the whole family, why not cook a gourmet meal at home. This is cheaper than eating out and is a fun activity for everyone to do. Not to mention you have a great meal to enjoy afterward!
Set up a nice table with candles and make it a really special night!
