VALENTINE’S DAY: 6 UNIQUE DATE IDEAS
Are you are planning something special for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, but want to do something more memorable this year? Instead of the fancy dinner reservations and a bouquet of roses, choose a unique date experience from our list of the top 6 one-of-a-kind dates. You can do them in Montreal, or wherever you are located!
LACE UP AND GO ICE SKATING:
Take advantage of the cold weather and head over to your local outdoor ice rink. It is the perfect activity to bundle up and hold hands while enjoying the scenery. The best part? You can warm up with each other afterwards by enjoying homemade hot chocolate and cuddling under a blanket.
Head to the Old Port in Montreal to go skating at the Bonsecours Basin.
SHOW OFF YOUR KITCHEN PROWESS IN A COOKING CLASS
Learning a new skill, or building on an existing one is always a fun activity to do with your significant other (especially when there is food involved!) Attending a cooking class is an alternative to going out for dinner. Bonuses include getting to meet new people, learning to cook a gourmet meal and eating it too.
Sign up for a class at Ateliers & Saveurs, located on 444 rue Saint Francois-Xavier in Montreal.
UNWIND WITH EACH OTHER DURING A LUXE SPA DAY
A day at the spa is a relaxing and romantic way to spend Valentine’s Day with your partner. Indulge in a couple’s massage, an exfoliating scrub or a revitalizing facial. Afterwards you will feel restored and relaxed – what better way to bond?
Make reservations at Bota Bota, a spa located on the St. Lawrence River at the corner of McGill and De La Commune West.
SHOW OFF YOUR RHYTHM WITH SOME BALLROOM DANCING
Dance the night away with your Valentine. Ballroom or salsa dancing is a wonderful reason to dress up, listen to great music and reconnect with each other in ways you may have forgot how (who knew he had such great dance moves?). Laughs are guaranteed!
Attend a group class at Centre Ballroom Dansesport in Montreal, located on 5034 rue Sherbrooke.
GET INSPIRED AT AN ART GALLERY
For a cultured day spent around your city, grab your comfy shoes, your special someone and attend an art gallery exhibition. It is an opportunity to talk in an intimate setting and sets a romantic tone for the evening. You might be surprised about what pieces you agree and disagree upon and see each other in a whole new light.
Visit the Musée des beaux-arts in Montreal this Valentine’s Day.
GO ON AN ADVENTURE WITH SOME SNOW SHOEING
There aren’t many occasions when you can take advantage of the snow, so this Valentine’s Day plan an outdoor excursion. Snow Shoeing is a great activity to get away from city life, perfect for an adventurous spirit.
Venture over to Mont Royal and you can rent snow shoes for $9 an hour or $15 for 3 hours.
No matter the activity, rock your date in style with our curated selection of Valentine’s day pieces here.
