When you’re in a relationship Valentine’s Day can be a romantic fairy-tale complete with flowers and champagne, or it can seem like any other day of the year. If you’re stuck for ideas on what to do with your significant other this year, let us help you out. Here is our list of the best Valentine’s Day ideas for couples.
6 Take a Cooking Class
One of you may throw down in the kitchen, and one of you may not. Either way you can pick up some new skills and try some new food. There are a few options around the city and you’ll be sure to find a class that suits any taste and skill level.

5 Mini Getaway
Get out of the city for a day or two to reconnect and recharge. Harrison Hot Springs, Whistler and Victoria all make for romantic getaways that are only a few hours away from Vancouver. Check online for special Valentine’s Day deals.

4 Spa Day
Sorry guys, your 10-minute “massage” isn’t going to cut it this time. Treat each other to a day at the spa where you can relax in a sauna or steam room and get a side-by-side massage from a professional. It’s worth it.

3 Go to a Comedy Show
What better way to spend time with the person you love than laughing together? Just For Laughs NorthWest returns to Vancouver this month with shows at different venues throughout the city. Or catch a show at The Comedy Mix or Yuk Yuks.

2 Vancouver International Wine Festival
Grab your sweetheart and check out one of the many events the Vancouver International Wine Festival has to offer. There are events ranging from tastings to seminars to wine pairing dinners all over the city. The festival runs from February 11th to 19th and event descriptions and tickets can be found online at vanwinefest.ca
1 Take in the View
Head up to the top of Grouse Mountain at sunset for a night your significant other is sure to remember. Or, if you prefer to stay downtown, make a dinner reservation at one of Vancouver’s two revolving restaurants. Cloud 9 and Top of Vancouver both offer a 360-degree view of the city, not to mention excellent food.
