For the men out there who are still clueless on what to do with their significant others on this day, we compiled some of the most fun date ideas for Valentine’s Day. And the best part, you need not put a dent on your spending.

Dinner Reservation

A couple of weeks before Valentine’s Day, book a reservation in a restaurant that you both like. Make sure to do an advanced booking because usually on a few days before February 14, most of the restaurants are fully booked. Furthermore, booking in advance may also entitle you to discounts and other freebies.

Cook for your partner

Cook-together

If you are a man confident of your skills in the kitchen, then make her dinner at your house. Cooking for her gives a personal touch the whole event that she’ll surely highly appreciate. It also shows her that you can serve and take care of her. After dinner, you can just sit on the couch, sip wine and talk. To make the gesture more thoughtful, you can also give her a foot rub or a massage.

Ice skating

Some people just want to do sweet gestures for their partner. Ice skating is a fun date idea for these people because couples can hold hands and be close while skating. The cold environment will also give you an excuse to cuddle up. After skating, you can both go into a coffee shop and have some hot chocolate.
