4 Ways To Get Lovy Dovy This Valentines Day Without Leaving Your Home

Home is where the heart is, which makes it the perfect spot to spend Valentine’s Day. There are plenty of reasons to consider staying home this year. For one, Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday, which isn’t the best day to go out anyway. Plus, it’s cold outside! Why would you want to leave your warm, cozy home?  If you need some ideas on having a romantic evening in, we have you covered. 

1. Your Home Can Be The Most Romantic Restaurant 

Instead of going out, order in! You can get dressed up like you’re going out to the fanciest restaurant in town. Go all out with candles and flowers in your dining room and have a candle-lit take-out or delivery dinner. Set the mood with a special playlist full of songs that 

carry special meaning to you and enjoy! Just make sure to place your order ahead of time because Valentine’s Day is a popular night for take-out. 

2. Get Cozy and Reminisce  

Your living room can be the perfect location for a special Valentine’s Day bonding session. Put the kids to bed, light up the fireplace, and break out the old photo albums. Taking the time to look back on your younger, more carefree days will be sure to get a lot of laughs and maybe even some tears. Most importantly, it will be a great way to encourage conversation and bonding time together you may not regularly have. 

3. Game Night!

If being romantic isn’t really your thing, that’s okay! Spending the evening playing games with your significant other, or even the whole family, can be fun too. Grab some snacks, a deck of cards, or your go-to board game, and take the time to enjoy each other. If you want to create a game with a Valentine’s Day theme, check out some ideas here.

4. Learn Something New

Have you been wanting to take an online class or workshop with your sweetie but just haven’t had the time? That can change this Valentine’s Day. You can do an online cooking class together, like one from Sur La Table, where you can learn to cook a gourmet meal at home via Zoom. If the thought of cooking with your main squeeze sounds horrible, you can host an online paint and sip party. Together, you’ll follow along with the instructions to create a masterpiece while sharing some stories, laughs, and good music without leaving your home.

However you spend this Valentine’s Day, we hope you enjoy it!
