Valentine’s Day Date Inspiration!

Valentine’s is the perfect opportunity to show just how much you love, appreciate and know your partner. It’s a day to celebrate all things love and quality time together.

While some people prefer grand gestures and expensive gifts, others prefer simple, intimate moments together. If you fall into the latter, then you’ll love our date ideas below!

Have a Picnic:

Pack a basket with your favourite lunch and head to a local park for a romantic picnic- it really is that simple! Pick up a picnic basket from Briscoes and pack it with some sandwiches and cookies from Subway or a classic fish & chips from LJ’s. Either way, you will be sure to make your partner feel special, all while enjoying each other’s company and the scenery.

Movie Marathon:

Pop on Netflix, and indulge in the Valentine’s Day Dessert Box from The Cheesecake Shop for a cozy movie night. This at-home date idea is the perfect opportunity to spend some cost effective quality time together!

Go for a Walk:

Explore on of Henderson’s beautiful and scenic walking tracks. Depending on how game you are, there are some gorgeous scenic tracks that vary in distance, from the 10km Te Henga Walkway to the 4.8km Henderson Loop Path. Getting out and about in nature is a great way to enjoy each other’s company, get some exercise, and appreciate all that New Zealand has to offer. If you are wanting to go above and beyond this Valentine’s Day, you could even pick out a new water bottle or pair of sneakers from Rebel Sport.

Games Night:

A bit of healthy competition never hurt a relationship! Have the ultimate game night at home with boardgames from Kmart and decide for good who is the true Uno winner and relationship champion. Of course, no game night is complete without snacks, so we recommend popping into Reduced to Clear to pick up your sweets spread.
