Valentines Day Ideas
(for Ages Over 49)
Have a backwards dinner (start with dessert, then a main course, then salad, then soup, and finish with an appetizer).
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.
Go to your local Party Store and rent a helium tank good for around 75 balloons. Buy at least 8 dozen balloons. Go home and blow them up in the bedroom. Donít forget to leave at least 2-3 dozen (without helium) for the floor and bed. Set up some candles and fresh flowers for the room. Then get your favorite board game and set it up on the bed. And cut up some fresh fruit to snack on.
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.
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.
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.
After an amazing steak dinner, complimented by a beverage of your choice, head for a private hot tub. Set out candles and soft music for the perfect touch.
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).
Go dancing down by the riverfront, lake, or ocean with a small radio and dance until the sun goes down.
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).
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.
Attend a concert in a smaller, more intimate setting. You can watch a show by a performer who has been around for a long time. They have staying power primarily because they are entertaining.
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.
Rent a boat or borrow one from a friend and cruise the lake or ocean and then have a candle light dinner.
Take your partner out for a day at the spa. Give each other his and her robes. Treat each other to couples massages. Also make sure you don't forget to make a visit to the steam room and the jacuzzi.
