Last-Minute Montreal Valentine's Day Date Ideas

Valentine's Day is officially here and if you are as disorganized as I am, you probably have not made plans yet. Well, lovely readers, MTL Blog is here to guide you to your last-minute Montreal Valentine's Day ideas that are so special, your partner will think that you have been planning for weeks on end. Though corny and consumerist, this holiday is maybe the best opportunity in the year to impress a new significant other, rekindle that flame with your long-term beau or otherwise just demonstrate your affection for someone you love.

Valentine's Day may have a reputation as a "Hallmark" holiday but that doesn't mean that you can't take advantage of the day with the person you love. 

You don't need to be in a relationship to celebrate. Each of these activities also works for a fun night out with your BFF or a cute evening with your mom.

In a city as cool and romantic as Montreal, you don't need weeks of planning to impress your significant other, all you need is each other and our beautiful island!

Slurp Some Pho

This is for those of you already in long-term relationships. Pho is delicious but perhaps not the sexiest of foods. Bring a bib, it's going to get messy.

But few things are better than watching Netflix on the couch with bellies full of noodles and broth.
