Fun and Cute Valentine’s Day Ideas With Your Significant Other

1. See a burlesque show. If you’re not the ‘romantic’ type, this idea can actually be a lot of fun. Find one of the growing numbers of burlesque clubs in your city and get those tickets in advance. Not only is it sexy, but it’ll spice up the rest of your evening. Guaranteed.

And don't pay more than 50$ for two tickets. Otherwise, you better be seeing Dita Von Teese.

2. Rent Your Dream Car. Have you always dreamed of driving a Jaguar? Maybe a Rolls Royce? Rent your dream car and take it for a spin, with a romantic playlist on the iPod, of course. (You might, however, want to “snow check” this one until nicer weather.)

3. Play some nighttime paintball. Or go-carting. Or laser quest. Or bowling. Basically anything that is actually FUN. You’ve got the whole day, spend it wisely. When is the next time you will have an excuse to go go-karting. And remember, the postgame shower is not to be taken alone.

4. Indoor Picnic. If it’s way too cold to actually go outside where you live, throw down a blanket and have a romantic picnic in your dorm room or living room. Make cute little finger sandwiches, cookies or brownies, and pick up your fave chips, then pack them up in a basket. If you want a bigger dose of nature, just flip on NatGeo and listen to the sounds of birds chirping. It’s all the fun of an actual picnic, minus the bugs crawling in your food.

Tip: dim the lights, turn up the music and light up some candles.
