Last Minute Austin Valentine's Day Ideas

Last Minute Ideas For A Fun And Inexpensive Valentine’s Day Celebration

Celebrating Valentine’s Day isn’t just about fancy restaurants and flowers. Here are some easy, fun Valentine's Day date night ideas, no reservations required!


Order Take Out From Your Favorite Restaurant

This year, some amazing local restaurants that don’t usually offer take-out have created special meals and treats just for Valentine’s Day. Austin Eater has compiled a ton of local selections from afternoon tea to sushi. The best part is no dishes and no need for a sitter!


Visit a local landmark


We love taking a drive downtown and seeing the sights! Here in Austin, we visit the Capitol, drive down 6th or Congress and if we get lucky we time it right as the bats make their sunset journey!

Grab dessert while you're out


Add to that drive a stop by Amy’s Ice Cream for a local treat and it’s a fun adventure for just the two of you or the whole family.


Create a playlist


Throw in a custom playlist filled with songs that will take you back to when you first met.


Take a trip down memory lane


When you get home, or if you’re staying in, break out the old photo albums or scroll through your gallery for throwback pictures of vacations, your wedding day and special moments in your relationship.


Go for a walk


I know it’s cold out (even here in Austin!) but bundle up and take a stroll, get some fresh air and maybe even bring a glass of wine along with you.


Chocolate fondue


Because chocolate is delicious. Check out this 5 ingredient fondue recipe for ideas that will make your mouth water.



Couples massage


Give each other a massage, even if it’s just 5-minutes it will relax and connect you. Our lavender body oil makes an excellent massage oil.


Movie night


Grab some popcorn, light the fire and get cozy with your favorite person!
