A great activity for everyone

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day
By Jon Zajac

As someone who loves bringing people together through fun icebreaker activities, I’m always looking for new ideas that are relevant to upcoming holidays or events. Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to create a warm, playful atmosphere and encourage guests to share their thoughts and feelings about love, relationships, and romance. One way to do this is by incorporating Valentine’s Day themed “This or That” icebreaker questions into your event.

How to incorporate Valentine’s Day themed This or That questions

To incorporate Valentine’s Day themed “This or That” questions into your event, follow these steps:

  1. Prepare a list of questions beforehand that are related to love, relationships, and romance in the context of Valentine’s Day. You can find inspiration from browsing online forums, social media posts, or popular culture references.

  2. Print out the questions on cards or display them on a screen or a poster board. Encourage your guests to form small groups of 3-5 people and take turns asking each other the questions. You can also create a rotation system where each group moves on to the next question after a set amount of time (e.g., 2-3 minutes).

  3. Make sure everyone has a chance to answer each question and listen actively to their responses. Encourage follow-up questions, comments, and discussions that build on the initial answers. You can also share your own insights and opinions about love and relationships to keep the conversation flowing.

  4. After everyone has had a chance to answer all the questions, gather your guests in a larger group and ask them to share their favorite or most surprising answers. You can also use this opportunity to highlight any commonalities or connections that emerged during the activity.

  5. Consider using some of the insights or stories that came up during the “This or That” icebreaker as a springboard for further conversations and activities throughout the day. For example, you could organize a Valentine’s Day trivia game or create a DIY craft station where guests can make their own valentines.

Ideas on different themes of questions

To keep your Valentine’s Day themed icebreaker questions fresh and engaging, you can explore different themes and categories that are relevant to the holiday. Here are some ideas:

  • Love languages: Ask questions about how people prefer to give and receive love (e.g., “Do you prefer receiving gifts or quality time on Valentine’s Day?” or “What is your favorite way to express love to someone else?”).

  • Relationship stages: Ask questions that reflect different stages of relationships, from first dates to long-term commitments (e.g., “What was the most memorable first date you’ve ever had?” or “What is one thing you would change about your current relationship if you could?”).

  • Romantic gestures: Ask questions about romantic gestures and traditions (e.g., “What is the best Valentine’s Day gift you’ve ever received?” or “Do you prefer a fancy dinner or a cozy night in for Valentine’s Day?”).

  • Friendship: Ask questions that explore the role of friendship in love and relationships (e.g., “What is your favorite thing about being in a romantic relationship with someone?” or “How do your friends influence your romantic choices?”).

  • Pop culture: Ask questions that reference popular movies, TV shows, or songs related to Valentine’s Day (e.g., “Which romantic movie character do you identify with the most?” or “What is your favorite love song of all time?”).

By incorporating these different themes of questions into your Valentine’s Day themed icebreaker activity, you can create a fun and inclusive atmosphere that encourages guests to share their thoughts and feelings about love, relationships, and romance. So why not give it a try and see how it can enhance your next event!
