Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday this year. It’s unfortunate that is it on a weekday because not many people can take their sweetheart out that night, except maybe to a romantic dinner. I’m sure plenty of couples will plan a pre-Valentine’s Day celebration the weekend before, or after, the holiday.
My husband and I celebrate Valentine’s Day along with the anniversary of our first date (February 2nd – 17 years this year!). We are planning on going out to dinner and a movie. For dinner we might go to the Olive Garden. As for the movie, we’re still trying to decide. I want to see Mama and my hubby wants to see Broken City. They are not exactly romantic movies, but, they are movies we really want to see.
Whenever we go to the movies I always order my tickets online via Fandango. It’s so much easier to order the tickets online and print them out at home so that we don’t have to wait on long lines when we get to the theater.
One time Fandango really saved the day for us. Since my husband and I rarely get any “couples time”, my hubby took off from work one day while the kids were at school so we can have lunch and a movie. While we were at the mall we decided to exchange a jacket we bought our son that was the wrong size. We ended up getting stuck on a very long line. By the time we finally made it to the theater the line for tickets was long and we would have missed the beginning of the movie. Thankfully we had purchased the tickets from Fandango so we were able to get in quickly and avoid the long line. Ever since that day I make it a point to buy all my movie tickets from Fandango.
Fandango also offers gift cards and e-gift cards which make a great gift for the movie lover in your life. I also think giving your sweetheart a gift card for Fandango and letting them pick out a movie for a “date night” would make for a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift. It would be fun to tuck the gift card into a bouquet of flowers or even a lovely Valentine’s Day card.
In case this idea sounds great to you, Fandango can make your Valentine’s Movie Date Night a hit. Simply check out their Valentine’s Movie Guide for tips on the perfect movie to see – whether you want to get romantic or have a fun night out with the girls (or guys)!
