Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and you may be wondering how to spice up the night with your significant other. There’s always the romantic dinners or a walk-on-the-beach kind of evening, but why not try something new this year with your sweetheart that unlocks the magic of the evening that you both will never forget.

Below are five fun Valentine date night ideas to enjoy with your significant other as the two of you make a night of it. Enjoy something out of the box such as a painting class, a cooking class, a nice picnic and movie in the park, or maybe even a romantic spa day together. How about really stepping out and going to karaoke and serenading each other?

1. Painting With a Twist

One of the latest crazes is going to paint with friends and even your significant other. But not just any painting class – it’s painting with a twist in some places or paint-n-sip in other towns, but they all include an added feature of bringing along a little wine to make the evening all the more fun.

Why not sign up for an evening of painting the night away as you marvel at each other’s artistic talent. Painting with a Twist offers many locations around Texas to make a night of it drawing simple to follow designs. Valentine’s is the perfect setting to enjoy a night out on the town drawing a heart, or a bouquet of flowers, or maybe even a photo of each other. The sky’s the limit.

2. Cooking Class

What’s more romantic than cooking with your sweety? Attending a cooking class at your local Sur La Table for one of their cooking events, for instance, can be very enjoyable.

You can also purchase all the ingredients for a favorite dish you both enjoy and whip it up together in the kitchen complete with the mess and all which makes it all the more fun to learn together as you mix up all the ingredients.

Or you can always YouTube a favorite recipe from your favorite chef and follow along together as you dice up the vegetables, boil the pasta, all the while enjoying each others company in a dinner made just for two.

3. Movie in the Park

Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a romantic picnic in the park followed by an afternoon movie sitting on the lawn with your sweetheart at your neighborhood park.

Many parks around town now show movies throughout the year as the sun sets. Discovery Green in Houston, Texas, for instance, offers “Screen on the Green” where they show old classics and everything from comedies, to romantic films, and more. You never know what favorite old film will be showing just in time to grab a blanket, some lawn chairs, and some popcorn to cuddle up with that special someone as you reminisce remembering the first time you saw the movie together.

4. Spa Day

A romantic weekend get-a-way to a beautiful Hill Country resort and spa is just the ticket this Valentine’s Day.

Why not book a valentine excursion that includes a relaxing spa day together as you enjoy getting a massage and taking some time away to lose yourself with your love, melting the stress away for a few hours.

The Hill Country is full of beautiful get-away spots with the most beautiful views to take that much-needed break with your sweetheart. Many hotels offer packages to take advantage of during special events like Valentine’s Day. So what are you waiting for? Surprise your Valentine this year with a relaxing massage as you enjoy one-of-kind landscape views that take your breath away.

5. Karaoke

Karaoke anyone? If you want to try something really out of the box then karaoke is right up your alley this Valentine’s Day.

Singing those love tunes as you gaze into each other’s eyes while trying not to break a sweat or laugh can be a challenge even for the most in-tune singer. So what if you can’t sing? It’s getting up there and trying something new with your sweetie pie that will make the evening all the more memorable.

Visit your local pub, or look for clubs having a karaoke night and grab your partner for a night you both will never forget. Who knows you may even walk away with a song that will bring back memories for a lifetime as you reminisce in the years to come on this Valentine’s date.
