Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. People are already planning on what to do for this holiday meant just for couples. They’re searching for something special. But a special event for Valentine’s doesn’t necessarily have to revolve around the usual concepts around couples, love, and dates.

Here are four event ideas that will be different but definitely fits the holiday.

Cooking is the Way to the Heart

The saying “The way to the heart is through the stomach” has never been truer than on February 14. Many partners give chocolates, cakes, and pastries or cook a special dinner on this day. However, there are thousands of partners who can only dream of doing something as personal as this because they don’t know how. Hold a special cooking event for them to teach them easy-to-make romantic recipes. You might be surprised how many women – and men – sign up.

Take Care of the Kids

Parents want to be by themselves too. Unfortunately, taking care of the kids leaves little time to have a quiet romantic meal. Unless, you can offer a community event where the kids can safely have fun while the parents go on their date. Partner with a local kindergarten that can lend their trained staff and plan activities that will keep the kids occupied for a few hours.

Help Singles Out

Despite all the couples during the 14th, there are still legions of singles that are still looking for the one.  Help them out. Offer a speed dating event, where they can meet their fellow unattached. The concept of speed dating is simple. Singles are matched with a prospective partner, talk as if they were on a date for five to ten minutes, then move on to meet another single. Those who feel a connection can meet again afterwards.

Cater to the Bitter Club

While singles are looking for partners, there are hordes of individuals who are wallowing in bitterness. Some suffered from bad breakups while others have been rejected for the umpteenth time, then are those that don’t like Valentine’s at all. Make an event for them – an Anti-Valentine’s. Remove any trace of romance and let them vent their frustrations. For example, create a bonfire where they can throw pictures of their ex. The possibilities are endless.
