Whether you love Valentine's Day or dread it, there is no stopping February 14th from rolling around again.  It can be a day to lavish your sweetheart, a day for you to indulge in sweet treats, or it can be a day when you practice kindness and do something sweet for someone else.  Here are a few ideas to make this day your own.  

 

Surprise Your Sweetheart - Sign up for a cooking class and learn a new skill together.  Central Market has a month long chocolate themed series of classes.  For more info, click on the link, be sure to check more than one location, as classes fill up quickly. Sur La Table has a wide variety of cooking classes as well, from the romantic to the exotic!

Entertain Your Love- Dallas Culture Map has a variety of events listed for an unforgettable Valentine's Day.  The list is grouped by time, there are some standouts that would certainly make "the cut" on our list.  Try The Dallas By Chocolate, The Vintage Valentine's Tour, consisting of chocolate and jazz, well, you had me at Vintage.... or may we suggest the Cirque du Soleil performance of Amaluna? Either way, this eclectic list has something to offer everyone. 

Dine With Your Darling - Check out Guidelive for list of 12 Lovely Spots for Valentine's Dining No Matter Where You Live In North Texas.  This is a great resource for local restaurants and the Valentine Specials they offer! 


Adventure With Your Better Half- Explore your community and plan a romantic adventure.  Ride the McKinney Avenue Trolley in Uptown/Downtown Dallas.  Check out the website and select a few key destinations, (like the Dallas Museum of Art) to hop on and hop off for dinner, drinks and dessert.  If you crave live music, make sure to stop at The Rustic!  If your address happens to be further North, visit Downtown McKinney, for an afternoon of wine tasting at Landon Winery, on the square, some shopping, and a wonderful, locally sourced, farm to table meal at Harvest.  If your zip code is somewhere in between, check out Legacy Food Hall's event Sweet Pairings for Sweethearts.  This event features curated flight of pairings of wine and dessert by Blush Wine Bar.

Cozy Up At Home With Your Cutie- Surprise each other by picking up each other's FAV take out and cuddle at home with a movie or two!  Better yet, use FAVOR, DoorDash or Grubhub to do the driving FOR you!  Find each of these services for download either in the apple app store or google play. 

Be Sweet To Your Furry Friends - Check out your local animal shelter or rescue group to see how you can get involved and volunteer.  Operation Kindness, Dallas Street Dog Advocates, Dallas Dogrrr, Collin County Animal Services, Dallas Animal Services, Second Chance SPCA, SPCA of Texas are all worthy groups that would love YOUR support.  Opportunities abound, and range from a one-time donation, to fostering, to routine volunteer opportunities at the shelters.  Check them out!
