Here Are Your Last-Minute Valentine's Day Date Ideas

Guess what? There are only 11 days till the day. That means you only have less than two weeks to plan a romantic date with the bae for Valentine's Day. You're probably shitting your pants, scrambling to make that dinner reservation and buy those movie tickets. But are you sure your S.O. deserves yet another dinner-to-movie date combo? Gasgas na 'yan!

Stray away from the usual. Here are a few last-minute Valentine's Day date ideas that are very doable, with just a little planning! You can even up your game with our suggested gifts.

Have an outdoor picnic


Consider this one of the clichés in our Valentine's day date ideas, but not a lot of people can do it right despite its simplicity.

An idyllic location, a basket of home-cooked early dinner (or takeout if you’re lazy), a couple of blankets, and a handy Bluetooth speaker like JBL Go to blast kilig music—these are your ingredients to a romantic date success! Even better? Have a couple of board games on standby!

And as you enjoy your time talking the hours away, give your love an Instax Mini 9 to remember the day. That photo will also fit perfectly in each other’s wallets—a perfect memento that will bring smiles to your faces. Every. Single. Time.

Set up an outdoor movie date

Let’s take our list of Valentine's day date ideas a step further.

You’re out in the park (or even just your backyard!) with your partner. Why not set up camp, bust out your iPhone 8 Plus or handy 12-inch MacBook, and connect to the internet so you and your S.O can watch Love Actually together? Here's a pro tip: Don't stream online! Pre-download the movie, so you won't have to worry about connectivity issues later on.

If you want to give it a little more oomph, hook up your iPhone or MacBook to the Marshall Stockwell speaker, sans the pesky cable.

Just add fairy lights, and you have a Tumblr-iffic date!

Sweat it out with a new sport


Hearsay is love can actually make a couple gain weight together. But that doesn’t mean that keeping fit together is out of the question. 

Kick off the road to fitness with a workout date. In true fashion of showing off that you are indeed a couple, gift your bae and yourself similar fitness trackers like the Vivosmart HR+ or the Fitbit Charge HR. You can add your partner as a buddy online to compare stats, progress, etc. It’s a fun way to compete and stay in shape together.

Talk about becoming fitness buddies and relationship goals, right?

Go on a day trip to the nearest beach


You think a destination date is too hard to execute at the last minute? Think again! Many beach resorts near Manila offer day trip rates!

Don’t forget to pack travel essentials like the MiLi Power Nova I for long trips away from sockets, a GoPro Hero6 Black to catch all the watersports action, and an iRing to foolproof your selfie-obsessed bae's phone.

You see whipping something romantic doesn't have to be extra grand. It just has to be extra thoughtful! As long as you show your partner that you care enough to make sure your day goes perfect, your effort will be well appreciated. Happy love month, lovebirds!
