Let’s start with my own favorite first! One of the cutest Valentine’s date ideas in my opinion is to recreate your first date!
Of course, if it was something that you can’t do currently that’s okay, but if your date was at a special place such as a hike, a restaurant that is still open, or a movie night with a particular movie, you can recreate it and have some fun.
And now, let’s hear the Valentine’s date ideas from other college bloggers!

Write Each Other Love Letters
If you and your significant other are staying at home on Valentine’s Day, writing each other genuine letters is a great way to spend time together and bond!
For this date idea, simply prepare a letter and exchange it with your significant other (or you could even read it aloud to each other). If you’re not sure what to write about, here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Favorite memories with them
- Things you love about them
- How you envision your future together
- Things you’ve always wanted to tell them

Go together to the bookstore of your choosing–you could go to a hip, local spot or a well-known chain like Barnes & Noble. Heck, even a garage sale or a thrift store would work too. Once you’re there, split up and select a book. The catch is that the book you pick isn’t for you, it’s for your date.
This could go down a lot of different ways. Will you pick one of your favorite books, one you think they’ll like, a romantic collection of poems, something funny, or perhaps something more picture heavy (like a graphic novel)? The open-endedness and mystery is what makes it fun!
In fact, you might want to set a time limit on this task. Maybe 20 minutes, maybe an hour, or something in between. Just be sure to communicate the plan before you go your separate ways because it’s pretty easy to lose track of time in a bookstore.
Once you both have your picks, present the books to each other at a bakery/ cafe/ beach/ some other agreed upon location. Finally, dive into your new books and spend an hour reading together. Shoulder to shoulder under a tree is always nice when the weather permits!

Bake with friends or family!
Something I do every Valentine’s day is bake! I’m not the best baker, but I am enthusiastic, so I love baking something unique and special for my friends and my partner.
I’ve baked cupcakes, cheesecake, cookies…everything! I like to challenge myself with something I wouldn’t usually attempt, and it’s always a lot of fun.
This is also a great COVID-safe activity, and it’s the perfect way to celebrate with friends and family.

Spend time outdoors!
My favorite date idea is to spend the day in the great outdoors with my amazing husband.
We particularly enjoy rock climbing, hiking, and mountain biking in the amazing Colorado mountains.
Outdoor activities are a great way to spend time with the ones you love, exercise, and enjoy unbelievable views. As an added bonus, they are completely free, socially-distanced, and can be done all year round (with the help of some layers during the winter).
After a long day outside, we love coming home and cooking a nice meal together, and watching a movie. You can easily find great hiking trails, rock climbing crags, and mountain bike paths on various local outdoor forums online such as alltrails.com!

I am currently single, but I still take time to enjoy Valentine’s Day. However, I also love
celebrating Galentine’s Day on February 13th, which is a great way to spread love to all your best
friends and your support team.
My freshman year of college when I was living in a dorm, I threw a Galentine’s Day party for my floor. In true Leslie Knope fashion, I made waffles for everyone and we decorated cards for each other. It was so fun to come together to show our appreciation!
To keep compliant with COVID-19 restrictions, celebrate with those that you live with– I currently
live with all college-aged women and we’re definitely planning a little party for the five of us.
So grab all your friends and/or roommates and throw a Galentine’s Day party because February is also a time to celebrate your girlfriends for making your life so wonderful!

This year for Valentine’s Day I will be doing a Galentine’s Day with my roommates. We did one last year and it was our last party before the pandemic happened.
I think Galentine’s celebrations is a great way to bond with your college roommates. We will be making fun cocktails and desserts and watching a rom-com to end the night. This is both safe and fun as we stay in the comfort of our home, and making the drinks instead of going out to the bars actually makes for a really fun activity to do with your friends.
I am really looking forward to this Girl’s Night! It is also a nice reminder than you can enjoy Valentine’s Day every year, whether in a relationship or not.
