Valentine's Date Ideas in Oxford, OH

Ah, love. It's in the air, as they say. Maybe that's because we're just one day closer to the weekend and who doesn't love the weekend? Or maybe it's because Valentine's Day is around the corner!

Either way, we're feelin' the love and want you to feel it, too. So we've created Valentine's Day itinerary with a few ways for you to enjoy this special day with your special someone right here in town. And because it shouldn't cost an arm and a leg to show people you love them, this list is not only gonna be fun but it also won't break the bank. Some things listed here are even going to be free.

Now, go forth! Drink coffee, go ice skating, order delivery! And remember, Oxford loves you!

What better way to start the day than with a cozy mug of local coffee, enjoyed from the comfort of your front porch? (It may be cold out, so make sure you've got the good slippers on.)

Oxford Coffee Company's Love at First Sip Valentine's Blend is available to order online now. (You can choose either shipping or delivery).

Available in light, medium, or dark roast, this coffee has notes of decadent milk chocolate, sweet berries, and cream with a silky finish. So basically, it's delicious.

Order yours now. Your Valentine will thank you.

Oxford is well known for its nature trails, and for good reason: we have a lot of 'em! Check out some of our suggestions for Best Winter Hikes, then lace up your boots and hit the trails.

We are big supporters of staying warm and snuggly inside and keeping the kitchen clean while ordering delivery. Sorry, but everything about that sentence just sounds amazing, right? And if you've done the other activities on this list then you've probably worked up an appetite, so sit back and let someone else do the cooking!

There are plenty of options for ordering delivery here in town, whether it's through Oxford to You (who delivers for over 20 restaurants in town) or through a local business with their own delivery services, such as Phan Shin or SDS.
