How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day With All the Loves of Your Life (From Pets to Friends)

For many, we have multiple “loves” of our lives. While your significant other may be the first person you think of to celebrate with on Valentine’s Day, there are also best friends, kiddos, and even furry friends in our lives to celebrate.

We’ve compiled a list of ideas that are sure to show each of your loved ones just how special they are to you.

Something Sweet
Having a Valentine’s Day without chocolate is like going to Cheesecake Factory and not getting cheesecake; sacrilegious.

For Couples: Tour the Ethel M. Chocolates Factory and walk the Botanical Cactus Garden on premises, preferably hand in hand. They even offer chocolate tasting classes.

For Friends: Meet up at Jinju Chocolates where you can enjoy chocolate fondue together.

For Families: Head to the Jean Philippe Patisserie — inside the Bellagio — to marvel at the chocolate fountain and grab a treat from the glass case, or take a trip to M&M World if you have little ones.

For Furry Valentines: While you can’t give Fido chocolate, you can still reward them with a special dog treat and get a human-grade sweet for yourself at The Mad Batter Café. Eat together on their dog-friendly patio.

A Special Activity
Make the day extra memorable with these unique activities.

For Couples: There’s no shortage of fun and romantic activities in Las Vegas. A hot air balloon ride over the desert, the Eifel Tower Experience, and a gondola ride are all sure to wow and become a memory of a lifetime.

For Friends: Invite your friends over for a night of cocktails and crafting, a dinner party, or a home spa experience.

For Families: Everyone will be entertained at the Tournament of Kings dinner and show, or host a movie night or tea party at home.

For Furry Valentines: Spoil your dog with a day filled with new friends and the opportunity to stretch their legs by taking them to a nearby dog park located inside Inspirada — at Aventura and Capriola parks. For those pups (and owners) seeking a bit more adventure, travel to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, where dogs are allowed on a leash.

Go Out to Eat
Leave the dishes for another day and go out for a bite.

For Couples: Enjoy a romantic atmosphere at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant or Olives. Both have views of the Bellagio fountain.

For Friends: Go ahead and finally do dining in the dark, because you don’t need to stare, lovingly, into each others’ eyes. Check out highly-rated BLACKOUT. If you prefer to actually see what you’re about to eat, meet up with your friends at Downtown Container Park for multiple eating options, shopping, live music, and the famous 40-foot praying mantis with an affinity for fire.

For Families: Enjoy family-styled dishes — at the only location west of the Mississippi — at Carmine’s Italian Restaurant. Treat little ones to a meal at Rainforest Café or America, the latter includes a massive map and dishes and drinks representing America’s diversity, “coast to coast.”

For Furry Valentines: Make this Valentine’s Day one to remember and sit at the garden seating area at Park on Fremont with your pup. You will be amazed how tranquil a garden can be, situated in downtown Vegas. The atmosphere is where quaint and charming meets magical fairy tea party – in a grown up, regal way. Additionally, Rachel’s Kitchen offers a more relaxed vibe, closer to home. Ask for a seat on their dog-friendly patio.

Gifts That Say I Love You
Don’t show up empty handed. Show how much they mean to you with a gift.

For Couples: Gift a massage, write a love letter, or buy flowers.

For Friends: Create a playlist of songs you associate with them or from memories together. Gift this BFF necklace or this one.

For Families: Place a favorite, special treat in your kiddo’s lunch box or set up a scavenger hunt with sweets around the house.

For Furry Valentines: Gift a pet massage — yes, it’s really a thing — or even dog yoga. Or, simply give a good belly rub.
We get it, Valentine’s day is a holiday for couples to celebrate. But when you have a variety of loved ones in your life, why not celebrate the day with them all.

Luckily, for those living in Henderson, there are multiple opportunities to celebrate Valentine’s Day with all the “true loves” of your life. If you’re looking to fall in love with a house, view our available homes!
