5 Non-Traditional Ideas for Valentine’s Day to Consider

Coming up with the perfect idea for Valentine’s Day can be overwhelming. After all, while it's tempting to spend the most romantic day of the year with a traditional evening meal, there are non-traditional ideas that are worth considering. You can tailor the activity to your Valentine’s interests, whether you want to do something active or make a positive contribution to your local community.

If you are stuck for ideas on how to spend Valentine’s Day, we’ve put together 5 non-traditional ideas you should consider.

Visit a Rage Room

One of the most unconventional ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day is by going to a rage room to let off some steam. 

If you and your partner are looking for a fun way to escape from the stresses of daily life, why not let out your frustrations by destroying something this Valentine’s Day? Whether that’s smashing plates, CDs, cups or glass tumblers, you and your other half are sure to have an exciting and incredibly memorable Valentine's Day.

Getting Matching Tattoos

Being committed to your other half is one of the most important parts of any successful relationship. 

What better way to show your love and commitment to your other half than by getting a couple’s tattoo? Some tattoo ideas to consider could include a symbol or quote that is sentimental to you and your partner. Alternatively, you may want to have a half-designed tattoo, such as a half-heart, which becomes a whole when the two of you are together.


Do you and your Valentine regularly go on adventures together? Why not pack all your camping gear and spend a night at a campsite or a remote location? It’s a great opportunity for you and your Valentine to spend some quality time together and reflect on all the special moments you’ve shared. There’s nothing more romantic than being with someone you love, admiring all the stars you can see while camping at your favourite spot. Though, make sure to check the weather conditions beforehand.

Attend a Dance Class

Booking a dance class is a fantastic way of spending some quality time with your partner this Valentine’s Day. 

Whether you enjoy doing the salsa or you want to learn the Viennese waltz, there are many different dance styles you can choose from. Simply choose a style you’re both interested in learning and book onto a local class before dancing the night away to your favourite music.


Doing some volunteer work is a unique way of spending Valentine’s Day together. It’s a fantastic opportunity for you and your Valentine to make a positive contribution to your local community.

Some of the volunteering ideas you may want to consider doing include:

  • Serving meals at a soup kitchen for homeless people.
  • Assist with painting a mural at your local primary school or nursery.
  • Litter-picking at your local park.
  • Delivering toys and chocolate to sick patients at the hospital.
  • Host a quiz night to raise money for your chosen charity.

Participating in volunteer work can have a positive impact on your own relationship as it shows that you have compassion and empathy for others.
