Valentines Day Ideas
(for Ages 40-49)
Build a fire, snuggle up, and read a good book or perhaps romantic poetry together. Make up some hot chocolate or spiced cider to enhance the evening.
Select a dinner from the cookbook you have never tried. Shop for the ingredients and prepare dinner together. To add ambience, choose a type of cuisine and add decorations or dress to enhance the atmosphere.
Take a picnic lunch and go to a lake to feed the ducks.
Make a recording of all the loves songs you both like and play it while relaxing in front of a glowing fire (or while driving in the countryside).
Have a backwards dinner (start with dessert, then a main course, then salad, then soup, and finish with an appetizer).
If the weather is unpleasant, set up a picnic in the living room. Plan an elegant meal, complete with good plates, fine linens, silverware, and a nice blanket. Add candles and music to enhance the mood. Don't be afraid to try a new recipe.
Buy two cheap canvases and paint with toll paints or do finger painting and design a picture for one another. Choose something that describes yourself or something you appreciate about each other.
Take your honey on a carriage ride around town. If it's cold, bring a blanket and some hot chocolate. Bring a camera and ask your driver to take a picture.
Rent a boat or borrow one from a friend and cruise the lake or ocean and then have a candle light dinner.
Finger paint portraits of each other or find a picture to copy. Wear grubby clothes or provide a smock to protect your clothes. After you clean up, feed each other fresh fruit. Even better, some chocolate covered strawberries.
First plan a scavenger hunt. Write clues on note cards telling him/her where to go. Place the clues in the places around the community. Have a friend or relative give him/her the first clue. The final clue leads your date to a restaurant (be waiting at the table with flowers).
Plan a weekend trip somewhere close, even if it's only an hour or two away. Call ahead to the hotel and have your dinner waiting in the room, along with flowers and dessert.
Send flowers. Try adding a note or a poem. For greater impact, find a way to secretly add flowers to the vase every day, and include a secret note each time.
Pack a picnic dinner and head out of the city at dinner time (away from the bright lights). Spend time looking at the stars and talking about dreams.
Enjoy a nice romantic comedy alone. Remember the strawberries and cream.
