Creative Ways to Spend Valentine’s Day- Toronto PATH

The pressure is on when it comes to brainstorming activities for Valentine’s Day. Sure, you can go with the classic options (like dinner at a nice restaurant or a romantic movie), but what’s the fun in that? With the help of Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers, here’s a suggested list of out-of-the-box activities for you and your partner this Valentine’s Day.


Cook a Meal Together
Instead of going out to eat, why not stay in and try a new recipe together? It can be as simple as macaroni and cheese or as complicated as chicken consomme. Whatever the menu, cooking can be a fun way to learn something new and get a little silly. You can find quality cooking gear for great prices at Cook It in MetroCentre and find some great ingredients from Olly Fresco’s in Royal Bank Plaza.

And if the meal doesn’t exactly go according to plan? Hop on over to The Keg at Richmond-Adelaide Centre. In fact, if you know the two of you aren’t exactly the best chefs in the world, maybe make a reservation ahead of time (just in case). Top your night off with some tasty chocolates from Godiva in Royal Bank Plaza and you’re set.

Keep the Gifts DIY
Skip the big fancy night out and opt to put your time and energy into making the perfect gifts for each other. DIY gifts can be a fun and memorable way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Indigo in Royal Bank Plaza and Papyrus in MetroCentre have a great selection of stationary materials to make any gift thoughtful and unique.

If all else fails, a personalized charm from Pandora in Richmond-Adelaide Centre or a couple’s massage from Sutherland-Chan will do the trick.

Dress Up and Stay In
Who says you can only look nice when you’re going out? Put on your favourite outfits and make it a night to remember without having to spend all the unnecessary funds. Better yet, put the money you would’ve spent on dinner toward a brand-new outfit – it’ll last you longer than one night out for dinner will!

For the best of the best in suits, head to Brooks Brothers in Royal Bank Plaza. If you’re looking for something a little more unique, Elizabeth Boutique in MetroCentre has a large range of eclectic styles to choose from. Treat yourself to a new haircut or blow out at Royal Bank Plaza’s Taylor & Colt and a mani/pedi at Richmond-Adelaide Centre’s Polish’d. Lastly, a classic red lip is customary for Valentine’s Day, so allow yourself to purchase the newest shade from MAC Cosmetics, located in Royal Bank Plaza.

Make this Valentine’s Day with your loved one a night to remember with the help of Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers!
