valentines-day-candy-quest.jpgScavenger hunts are especially popular on Valentine’s Day for an added fun activity to the day. Personalize your Valentine’s Day with these creative scavenger hunt ideas.

1. Sticky Note Scavenger Hunt

Send your sweetheart around the house, office, or neighborhood with a series of sticky notes, each with a clue leading to the next. Bonus points for planting these in multiple locations that are sentimental to the two of you, leading up to a beautiful dinner or other romantic surprise.

2. All Day Scavenger Hunt

This idea is similar to the sticky note scavenger hunt, but is a little more mysterious. Instead of clues to the next note, make clues or riddles about your plans for the evening. Then plant these in multiple locations that you know he or she will visit throughout the day. Start out in the kitchen for the morning coffee routine, then place one on the car steering wheel, and another on their computer at work, etc. leading up to a beautiful dinner or other romantic surprise. Half of the fun is trying to figure out the evening’s plans!

3. Photo Safari

Take your loved one out on the town, or explore the countryside with a photo safari scavenger hunt. Make a list of different landmarks or objects beforehand, and then together try to find them all, while taking a snapshot each time you cross something off your list. This can be a great way to start or build a photo album of fun memories the two of you have shared together.

4. Surprise Delivery

Enlist the help of friends, coworkers, and family members for this unique surprise. Throughout the day, schedule one person at a time to make a surprise delivery to your significant other at home or at work. You can deliver things like flowers, chocolate, or small love notes, each accompanied by a clue as to the evening’s plans. It works well if you are headed to a particular restaurant; simply make each clue a letter of the restaurant. Then the letters will have to be unscrambled and placed with the very last clue, which should be the time of the dinner reservation.

5. Revisit Romantic Date Locations

Go back to the site of your first date, or stop by the location where you first met. Work your way through the memories in chronological order, stopping for a pictures at each location.

Of course, all of these can be modified and tailored to meet your individual needs. With just a little extra planning and imagination, you can turn your Valentine’s Day into a fun and truly memorable event.
