Let’s be real, Valentine’s Day can be one of the most stressful days of the year. There are so many expectations to plan the perfect date for your special someone. Between the gifts, flowers and dinner reservations, the whole thing turns into one big headache. But what if it didn’t have to be that way? The most important part of Valentine’s Day is spending time with the one you love. If you’re over all the fuss, consider some of Pittsburgh-based, low key Valentine’s Day ideas this year.
Just Go Out for Drinks
Some of us love the ambiance of a romantic restaurant, but trying to get a table of Valentine’s Day can feel like an up-hill battle. Instead of going through the whole rigamarole of getting a table and ordering an overpriced entree, grab a nice cocktail at the bar. It’s no secret that Pittsburgh offers more bars and restaurants than you can shake a stick at, so use Valentine’s Day as a chance to scope out a new spot.
There are plenty of affordable options in even the trendiest neighborhoods like Downtown, the Cultural District and Shadyside. After drinks, you can head home and spend some quality time with your favorite person.
Do Something You Actually Enjoy
This might sound like a no-brainer, but don’t let the pressure of the holiday force you and your sweetie into an activity that’s not, well, you! Maybe you’re not into fancy restaurants or big romantic gestures. That’s totally fine! There’s so much to do in and around Pittsburgh. Go see a movie or play laser tag. Peruse your favorite bookstore or revisit a local museum. Heck, go for a walk around your neighborhood or in a nearby park.
The most important thing about Valentine’s Day is spending time with the one you love, right? Making lasting memories are far more important than any fancy schmancy date that neither of you are even into.
Grab a Pizza and Binge Watch Your Favorite Show
If you’re looking to keep things as simple as possible, yet still spend time with your favorite person, what’s better than a pizza with all your favorite toppings and a season (or two) of your favorite show? Why go out and spend a bunch of money at a crowded restaurant where you can barely hear each other talk? There’s nothing more intimate than a night home on the couch with your favorite food and your favorite flicks.
Want to be extra romantic? Maybe watch that one series your partner has been begging you to try for months! Who knows, maybe you’ll even get hooked!
