fun V-Day date idea

I am not a huge Valentine's Day fan. I get annoyed by it, really. The only reason we ever do anything is because my husband kind of likes it :]


If I liked Valentine's Day, this would be a great date. There is an art studio nearby called artrebel and they specialize in art classes. They have a "Love Art" package, that is especially for dates. The Deluxe package includes: 2 hour session in the art studio (canvas, paints, and brushes included), two glasses of champagne, chocolates, and roses. There isn't any instruction, you are just left alone to create. 

How fun and romantic, right?! I thought so.

This package costs $250 but I found about this via Groupon (more on this later), because they had a coupon to get it for $95. That still seems pricey to me, but I love the idea. You could totally recreate this at home though! Snag a canvas and some paints from Michael's, buy your favorite champagne or wine, chocolates, and get from roses from Trader Joe's. (Throw an old sheet on the ground, too--don't ruin the carpet!) And presto--fun, creative, affordable date, and you get an awesome souvenir out of it!

So sidenote about Groupon. If you haven't heard of it, it is a website that when you sign up for their emails, you get a daily email of a rockin' deal around town. I figured I had nothing to lose (other than one junk mail message a day), and it could present a chance for us to see some of the city every once and awhile. The  coupons may be for restaurants, hotels, services, pretty much anything--but it is only one per day. They are typically something like this: "Get $30 toward your meal for only $15" ...so you essentially pay a discounted rate up front, like a gift card at half price. I haven't actually bought any yet, but I am waiting for the right time to pounce :]  Oh, and Groupon has deals at a long list of big cities in the US--not just LA.

What are you doing for V-Day?
