6 Out of The Box Valentine's Day Date Ideas In Orlando

Recreate their favorite romantic movie scene: If you know your partner well then picking a love scene should be a piece of cake.  But if you’re feeling stumped already almost any popular romantic love scene can do the trick.  Remember Thought + the right amount of effort = making sparks fly every time.  Take the movie “The Notebook” for example. Do NOT climb and hang from a Ferris wheel to get your ladies attention!  Gestures don’t have to be dangerous to be effective.  The scene where they take a moonlit walk and he asks her to dance with him beneath the stars and hums a familiar song to her as they sway beneath the moonlight will definitely do the trick. 

Ladies, your man may not have a favorite romantic scene but that doesn’t mean you can‘t get a little creative with one of his favorite blockbusters.
Recreate it in a fun and flirtatious way and he will feel like he’s the hero in this sexy scenario.

First Date Replay:  The first date is a quintessential part of the relationship process.  Once the honeymoon phase is over and life starts to get in the way going back to where it all began can give you a sense of comfort.  Your first date night could have been very romantic with candlelight and a string quartet lightly playing in the background or it could have been a fun and playful prom night.  Maybe it was a total disaster where everything seemed to go wrong but you both couldn’t help but laugh because it was just so you.  Take those memories and the excitement of a newly developing relationship and relive them all over again.  Play pretend with your lover as if it is your first date all over again.

D.I.Y Date Night Idea: Triathlon of Love.  Here is a simple yet unique romantic date night idea you can try.  If you are a couple who loves a little friendly….or flirty competition then this date is perfect for you.  I call it the  Triathlon of LOVE!  You will need a jar a few pieces of paper and a pen. Remember to be creative and playful as you can when coming up with these flirtatious feats. Together you will choose three different challenges and playfully compete against each other for a predetermined romantic prize for the winner.

LOVE Scavenger Hunt: Using clues around the house or around town. This Valentine’s Day Date idea will take a little pre-planning on your part but the end result will be worth it. No one knows you like the one you love.  Take the memories you’ve made together and send your lover on a scavenger hunt down memory lane.  You’ll need a few cards with envelopes and creative clues to each unique location. Now you can either take a trip down memory lane and revisit every place you’ve been together when you first met, or you can keep it simple with a romantic scavenger hunt around the house.  Lead them to the pantry for a sweet treat, then to the bathroom for a romantic bubble bath, out to the glove box of the car for another clue and a personalized mixed CD. Then lead them to the stereo system where you can play the mix and dance together The final clue if I were you, would lead to the bedroom but it’s your call. 

Destination Date Night: (Italy, France, Greece, Beach)  Has your lover dreamed of being whisked away on a romantic getaway.  Who wouldn’t love to head to Paris on a whim or sip wine in Tuscany?  Finding the time or the funding for such an escapade can derail your plans unless you get a little creative this Valentine’s Day.  Turn your home into a romantic destination for two.  With just a few pieces of themed decor, you can transform your pad into a French bistro.  Create a delicious French meal either for them or cook together and heat things up in the kitchen. Coq Au Vin, although it sounds quite fancy, is actually not too difficult to recreate. A little French wine, and perhaps dessert and you’re all set for your romantic destination date night.

ROMANTIC MOVIE NIGHT Under The Stars (Large Sheet and projector)  You’ve probably had your fill of movies but sometimes it’s all about the location.  Try turning up the romance by creating a whimsical movie night under the stars.  You’ll need a large white sheet, a clothesline, a movie projector, a few comfy pillows, candles and don’t forget the popcorn.  Choose a romantic classic like “The Princess Bride” or “Pretty in Pink” and reminisce together under the stars. 

Whatever you choose to do have fun and enjoy yourself, quality time spent together is what is important in maintaining any relationship!
