Valentines Day get’s a lot of flack .. Some people say it’s not even a real holiday (arguable, arguable).

Valentines Day Date Idea #1: Go on a picnic!

You don’t need to go to the fanciest restaurant to have a feast! All you need is a quick trip to Safeway to Ralphs! Grab some sandwiches, a tablecloth from the Dollar store, some fruit juice (18 and under) or some wine (21 and older). If you’re a San Francisco native, if weather permits, check out Golden Gate Park or Chrissy Field. Whether you want to keep it a big feast, or fun appetizers is up to you!

Valentines Day Date Idea #2: Cook dinner for each other!

Cook each other dinner at home! Check out a date night dinner menu here. Guys, you think food is the way to your stomach? Here’s a little secret, women love to gush to other women about how great their boyfriends/significant other/friend with benefits, benefits is .. Similarly, ladies even if you make something easy as pasta or salad, it’ll surely go straight to his heart. Plus, what a flirty way to enjoy the day together! Valentines Day Dinner is cheap, easy, and very realistic to do on a budget! Spill something? Let him lick it off of you..

This is one of my fave ideas. Grab your date, a bottle of champagne, some strawberries, and drive to the nearest inspiration point (San Franciscan’s may we recommend Coit Tower? Or the Palace of Fine Arts?) and enjoy your sweet treat! Bring a warm blanket just in case it gets cold. ;)

Valentines Day Date Idea # 4: Ice-Skating

Since it’s still winter, these lovely ice skating rinks around town will still be open. For about $20, you and your date can enjoy a few hours on the ice! Check out the schedule for Yerba Buena Gardens here to find a good time to go ice skating! A very fun and cute way to hold hands, laugh, maybe even fall on your ass in love!

Valentines Day Date Idea #5: Stay In, Dress Up

I’m blunt, sue me. For those couples that want to get it on, listen up: Ladies, why not take a night out, throw on something sexy, and cuddle? Guy’s any objections? Didn’t think so.

Valentines Day Date Idea #6: Museum, Poetry Slam, or a Play

There are SO many places and events of culture! Feeling inspired? Check out some open/mic – poetry slams around San Francisco. Check out The Creamery which hosts open mic every Weds from 7:00-9:00pm.
