1. TAKE THEM OUT TO DINNER
You can’t go wrong with a classic dinner date! This could be a fancy meal at a new and boujee restaurant you’ve both been dying to try or a casual stop at your favorite go-to pizza joint.
If you’re feeling up to a challenge, you can even try making a multi-course meal yourself!
This date includes two of any savory crepes, a “More to Love” (dessert crepe), and two of any fountain drinks. Only $20/couple!
2. RELAX TOGETHER
Let’s be real, life gets stressful. Show your date that you care by finding a way to take a load off their shoulders!
Treat them to a relaxing day at the spa or, for a more budget-friendly option, give them an at-home spa night with massages and face masks.
You and your date will experience contrast therapy, the Scandinavian-inspired process of enjoying a sauna followed by a dip in icy cold water, repeating. Enjoy the sauna; brave the cold; feel good. Only $40/couple!
3. GRAB A DRINK TOGETHER
Haven’t DTRed yet and want to keep things more casual? Take your date out for a Valentine’s Day zero-proof drink. This allows you time to chat and get to know them more while also keeping it short and sweet.
Get 2 slices of cheesecake and 2 Martinelli’s (non-alcoholic sparkling cider) for just $11/couple!
4. CREATE SOMETHING TOGETHER
Get your creative juices flowing and make something special together.
Find a painting class you can attend, look up a DIY tutorial on YouTube, or freestyle your own project. If it doesn’t turn out the way you envisioned, that’s okay! The most important things you’ll make are memories.
5. EAT A SWEET TREAT TOGETHER
Chocolate is a classic Valentine’s Day delicacy, but anything sweet will do!
Take your date out for a fancy dessert or make something together at home. This is great as a standalone date or as the cherry on top to finish a romantic evening together.
Come visit the only funnel cake store in Utah! All funnel cakes are authentic and made from scratch. With this date, you can get a banana split funnel cake with any of their specialty items!
6. GET ACTIVE
Maybe the romantic, slow-paced date isn’t really your speed. No problem! Having a backflip contest at a trampoline park, playing your favorite sport together, or learning to swing dance are great ways to spend time together while keeping the mood fun and playful.
Born in the mountains of Utah, Momentum Climbing designs its gyms to mimic the canyons and crags that have drawn people from all over the world for decades.
7. TRY SOMETHING NEW
One of the best ways to build a connection with someone is to experience something new together.
Look up places and activities that are unique to your area such as somewhere you can explore or a local shop neither of you has visited before.
