12 Top-Notch Experiences You Can Have with Your SO on Valentine’s Day

4. Visit a Spa Together

If you want to be able to chat and spend time together while you’re relaxing, consider a spa date night. Depending on where you go, you’ll have access to therapeutic soaking pools, saunas, and steam rooms that are perfect for soothing sore muscles and melting away tension.

You can often indulge in a luxurious facial, pedicure, or light massage, or snacks and beverages by the pool. Many of these spas recommend that you spend two to three hours per visit, so you can really get the benefit of the pools and treatment rooms.

5. Visit a Winery

Instead of buying a hugely marked up bottle of wine at a restaurant this Valentine’s Day, head straight to the source and visit a local winery for a tour and tasting. Even if you don’t live in Sonoma or the Willamette Valley, you may be surprised at how many wineries are located within driving distance of major cities.

You won’t be able to tour the fields in the winter, but many wineries will offer tours of their wine-making and aging facilities, as well as a tasting of their different vintages.

6. Make Your Own Jewelry

If you’d like to learn a unique skill and make yourself a gorgeous new accessory, consider taking a jewelry-making workshop with your significant other. There are many local jewelry makers that will teach their skills to beginners in a workshop or course format. Some people now are taking these courses so they can craft their own wedding rings!

Typically, classes are at least three hours long and are focused around one project rather than teaching a whole roster of skills. The goal at the end of the workshop is for you to walk out with a handmade ring, bracelet, or necklace that you’ve made for yourself.
