Date Night: Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt

The scavenger hunt date night I created for Halloween went over so well last year that I thought it would be a lot of fun to create another one for Valentine’s Day. Brandon and I aren’t the expensive dinner and fancy wine kind of people when it comes to Valentine’s Day but we are always down for games and people watching. I’m sure it’s the social sciences major in me but I can sit and people-watch for hours. You could call it stalking but I prefer to call it researching societal behaviors. 😉 

Just like I did with the Halloween scavenger hunts, I created multiple versions for you to choose from because some are harder than others. It just depends on whether or not you’re up for a challenge (and if you don’t mind failing – insert evil villain laugh – )

If you decide to go out on a hunt I’d love if if you’d share some of the pictures of your quest. You can share them on IG and use my hashtag #FarBeyondLove or you can post them to my Facebook page wall. 

Ok, here’s the easy one (click to open the PDF version)…

Easy, right? 

If you ask me, it’s a bit too easy but I like to give options and I know that not everyone out there prefers things as difficult as I do. The easy-version scavenger hunt is probably best if you already have plans and the scavenger hunt itself isn’t the focus of the outing. I could probably finish the first one in 30 minutes and then what do we do with ourselves?

I like the scavenger hunts that make me really hunt! I want to be on the prowl and since I already mentioned that I’m a big fan of people-watching I thought it would be fun to put together a people-watching scavenger hunt for Valentine’s Day. Just don’t get caught staring because that can be really creepy and uncomfortable. Just…be aware although some of these may require that you actually speak to people unless you’re good at eavesdropping (which I don’t recommend). 

Here’s the people-watching version (click to open the PDF version)

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day! 

I’ll be out with Brandon, probably people-watching and checking items off of both of the scavenger hunts. I’ll be checking in via Instagram (pictures and stories) so follow me there. If you do one of the scavenger hunts, please share your pics using #FarBeyondLove so I can see!!!

What are your Valentine’s Day plans? Are you up for trying a hunt?

    • Thanks Jessi! We love coming up with games to incorporate into our date nights. Sometimes we’ll do the alphabet game with street signs or we’ll try to either see a license plate or meet a person from all 50 states. Since we live in Atlanta, it’s easy to find most of them.

    • You’ve never done one? Omgosh, they can be so fun! Especially when you have a couple of easy things and a couple of challenging things to find. It keeps you in the moment while you’re out.

  1. Loving this super cute and creative idea for Valentines Day! Scavenger Hunts are a blast – and how much fun to do with my hubs!

    • Absolutely Joanna! Although if you’re doing the people-watching one with your little girl you may want to replace the one about finding a drunk person on a date. Maybe switch it up to someone wearing diamonds or red high heels?

    • Aw, I hope you guys have fun then! I suggested to someone else that if you do the people-watching one with a child you may want to change the one about finding someone drunk while on a date. I’d add finding someone wearing a fancy hat or maybe a pink dress.

  2. What a fun idea! This is a great to stay present with eachother and enjoy each other! I love going to movies and all but i don’t really spend any quality time with my husband when we do!

    • We love going to movies too but if we do we always make sure we stop somewhere for coffee or ice cream or something afterward. That way we always give ourselves time to intentionally connect as well.

    • When I was little my mom used to give each of us kids a “scavenger hunt” list of 15 different items for us to try to find while we ran errands. It kept us busy while we were out grocery shopping or other things. Now I know she was just keeping us busy but at the time it was about finding more than my siblings.

  3. What a fun idea! I would love to get the family together to do something like this! My husband will be working so this could be fun

  4. You know what I love about this? You have to interact with one another. Often date nights for us are in silence because we have no idea what to do LOL.

    • I love planning and scheduling events that make you talk and engage or play games. It’s so much more fun than sitting in a silent theater or awkward conversation over dinner. Fortunately, I shared conversation starters recently too. 😉

    • Thanks so much Taylor! We LOVE people watching too and it makes our date night so much more entertaining. We once spent about an hour watching a guy at a bar hit on various women. Lol.

  5. That’s a hilarious idea for date night! I love the actual list! Valentine’s day is the best day to people watch at restaurants.

    • Thanks! Valentine’s Day is the best! The subtleties are so much fun to watch and figure out. My husband and I once spent a dinner out trying to figure out the relationship between three people – 2 men and 1 woman. I still think it was father / daughter / boyfriend and boyfriend was meeting dad for the first time. All speculation, of course.

  6. This is such a cute and fun idea!! I love it and I’m definitely going to take this with me when I go out to dinner on V-day. My hubs is a big people watcher lol so he will get a kick out of this 😀

  7. That is such a great idea seems like so much fun my husband and I need to do something like this I’ve been trying to find something fun to do for valentine’s day
