6 Valentine’s Date Ideas For Introverts

This month, as we celebrate the power of being an introvert, we also celebrate the power of love with Valentine’s Day. Now, we know that Valentine’s Day isn’t the complete and total hoopla that comes along with a holiday like New Year’s, but whether with your girls or your partner, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate. If big, noisy restaurants aren’t your jam on popular holidays, check out these Valentine’s date ideas for introverts!

Go off the grid

Camping (or glamping, if you’re like us), is a great way to get away from it all and enjoy some quiet one-on-one time. Make it extra romantic by picking a camping spot with an extra-clear view of the stars for some dreamy stargazing.


Cook dinner together

Restaurants are not only a bit overstimulating on holidays like Valentine’s Day, but they also tend to be more expensive. Skip the holiday markups and find a recipe that you both are excited to make together. Try something new or make a full three-course meal so everyone gets in on the fun.

Grab a coffee + head to the bookstore

We love coffee, and we love books. While everyone is out and about, try heading to your local bookstore for some quiet fun. You can even make a fun game out of it by having each of you pick out a book you think the other would like, and gift them to each other when you get home.

Plan a game night

Board games are an introvert’s best friend. Whether it’s just the two of you or your closest group of friends, break out some classic board games like Clue, Yahtzee, Scrabble or Monopoly for a night full of cozy fun.


Hit the museum

Art museums are vastly underrated for romantic date spots. Play hooky and head to your local art museum for a leisurely afternoon that sparks your creative energy.

Lots of places host a wine and painting night, but if you’re an introvert, you might prefer to stay home. Bring the wine and canvas to you! All you need is a couple bottles of your favorite wine, two blank canvases, paint and paint brushes and a Bob Ross YouTube tutorial.
