Whether single or in a relationship, you have that one dream date you've always wanted to try. A location, food, or experience you've always wanted to tick off your bucket list. What is your Valentine's dream date?

1. Valentine’s Dream Date by the Beach

The relaxing sound of the waves splashing, the cool salty breeze against my skin, the comforting feel of sand on my feet, and the breathtaking backdrop of the sunset...oh, heaven! That’s a dream date any time of the year, really.

2. Valentine’s Dream Date Under the Stars

There’s something magical and profound about looking up at the stars. Those balls of fire from afar bring out the romantic side in anyone. Plus, it’s fun to search for your favorite constellations with your beloved while talking about your dreams.

3. Valentine’s Dream Date and the Aurora Borealis Experience

Who wouldn’t want to see the spectacular northern lights? It’s breathtaking, awe-inspiring, and definitely romantic. Have you ever seen this spectacular display of light with your significant other

4. Staycation Valentine’s Date

No need to leave the comfort of home to enjoy a special Valentine’s Day date. What can you do on a staycation date?

  • Cook a special dinner with your loved one.
  • Or order your favorite meal.
  • Play a fun board game.
  • Watch your comfort movie or show.
  • Listen to great music and dance the night away.

5. Cityscape Valentine’s Dream Date

For those working in the concrete jungle who can’t afford to go out of town due to their hectic schedules, the view of the city at night is a beautiful alternative.

Have dinner on a rooftop or make a reservation in a restaurant with a stunning city view.

To be away from the city below and to still feel connected to everything around you is solace.

Valentine’s Dream Date

Whether out for an adventure or staying home, it’s all romantic, fun, and memorable when spent with your significant other. 

There are many options for dates, but my ultimate Valentine’s dream date is one with a scenic view.

It’s essential to preserve and remember special moments like romantic times with your partner, so choose how to document them properly. 

Use a reliable camera to take and store the photos. 

It would be lovely to look back years from now and see how wonderful your Valentine’s date was. And remember:

The view is perfect when you’re gazing into your beloved’s eyes.

  23. This is the first Valentine's I've looked forward to in a very long time. Getting to spend it with my boyfriend will be a treat in and of itself, and our dinner tomorrow is going to be great :)

  24. Here too, not big on Valentine's day, my hubby and I just go out for dinner, that's it! Wishing you a fun one too regardless what you will be doing on Valentine's day!

  25. Staycation would work for me, less fuss lol

  26. Hi, Lux!

    Happy Valentine's Day to you, dear friend!

    I enjoyed your musings listing ideal ways to enjoy this romantic holiday with your significant other. It immediately triggered memories of a vacation that Mrs. Shady and I had in St. Croix. We dined on the outdoor terrace of a restaurant atop a high hill overlooking the beach and sea. It was a spectacular experience. I can also imagine how wonderful it would be to gaze at the Northern Lights with your partner.

    This is powerful:

    "As long as you're gazing at your beloved's eyes, the view is perfect."

    Thank you very much for the V-Day inspiration, dear friend Lux!

  27. Beautiful inspirations

  28. ;)

    Pra mim a única coisa que importa é estar com a pessoa que amo!

    Ótima terça!

    Beijo! ^^

  29. How fun is this! Happy Valentine's!

  30. Great post! My favorite would definitely be by the beach somewhere!

  31. Aww... You dream Valentine's Day sounds perfect! ;-)

  32. I'm glad to hear a single not hate Valentine's day. We always taught our children that it was a day to express love to those we love. couples or not.


  33. I agree with you, a scenic view makes for the nicest time with your loved one. The camera looks pretty awesome too :)

  34. These all sound amazing! I'd love to see the Aurora Borealis someday!

  35. My dream Valentine place would also be by the beach, in the lovely warm. I'd watch the sunset there, having dinner right along the coast.

  36. Hi Lux! I would love an aurora borealis date. I've never seen the northern lights, but the photos of them are gorgeous.
    I'll go with Olivia-Savannah's answer too. Dinner on the beach (no sand in the food though) sounds wonderful.

  37. These are all lovely ways in which to spend the special day! Stars are totally underrated, and if a date can include being seated underneath them - surely that's the most magical scenario! :)

  38. These are all great options! I hope you had a great time pampering yourselve.

  39. I love the ideas of dates on the beach and under the stars! I think you made a nice choice when it comes to who you want to be on your dream date with! lol

  40. i'm not big into valentine's day as a romantic holiday, as growing up it was always "friend's day" to me:-) but i hope you had a good one anyway! xx

  41. My perfect dream date would be under the stars, it would be very romantic... I would totally enjoy that with someone very special xox

  42. I will gladly share Zac Efron with you, but only you Lux.
    This post made me chuckle, thanks for sharing your heart.
