Cook up a storm
Restaurants are great, but if you don’t plan ahead, securing a booking on Valentine’s Day might be out of the question. Save yourself the hassle of ringing around and opt for a private dining experience in the comfort of your own home with a personal chef.

If you have the ideas for the perfect dish but don’t have the culinary skills needed to back it up, get a master chef earn you a few extra brownie points to cook for you.

Play some smooth tunes

We all know the perfect date isn’t complete without the right music. Give your Valentine an intimate experience they will love. Set a romantic mood and serenade your date without needing to have a musical bone in your body. Hire an Airtasker to come to your house or nearby date spot to play some romantic music that will keep you in the good books for a long time coming.

Win them over with cuddles
Sure, your date probably thinks you’re great, but chances are they’ll have an extra soft spot for small furry animals. Play the cute card and hire a puppy or kitten for some valuable cuddle time. It’s a fun way to put a smile on your date’s face and it might even score you some cuddles of your own.

Treat them

Why not give them a rest from household duties for a week such as cleaning, gardening or cooking. You could hire an Airtasker for house cleaning while you are out wining and dining your better half so you have an extra surprise when you get home.

Go tech

Why not build a personalized website just for them. You could upload your favourite photos, video and a romantic note. You could go a step further and make an app or game for them to explore.

Art = Love

If it looks like it might be poor weather why not stay indoors and get creative. Buy a blank canvas and paints to make your own piece of art together. It could turn out to be something fantastic, or it could be terrible but at least you’ll have some laughs either way.
