Did Valentine’s Day sneak up on you a little faster than normal this year? That’s right, Valentine’s Day is already here. As we now cycle through 1 COVID variant after another, we know that many are still a bit uneasy about going out, and may prefer to not spend Valentine’s Day in a crowded restaurant like in past years. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We compiled the following list to give you some last-minute Valentine’s Day ideas that you can do right at home! This year, surprise your Valentine with a unique celebration they will never see coming, and enjoy your time together safely at home. After all, home is where the heart is…
Turn Your Home Into The Most Romantic Restaurant In Town
Forget to make dinner reservations? Don’t worry! With a little bit of work, a special meal at home can be just as fun. Set the dining room table with decorations like flowers, candles, and maybe some cheesy paper hearts, and break out the special occasion dishes. Order take out or delivery from your favorite spot – just make sure to place your order ahead of time because Valentine’s Day wait times can be really long. Make a Valentine’s Day playlist with songs that remind you of each other and enjoy your dinner!
Valentines Day is about spending time together, but it also happens to fall on a Monday this year which isn’t exactly the best for going out. Instead, you and your honey can turn on some music and spend time in the kitchen making a simple meal. Even if you’re the worst cooks in the world, you can assemble a pizza! You can pick up a heart-shaped pizza crust at the grocery store along with all your favorite toppings.
Remember making blanket forts as a kid? Why not do something similar for Valentine’s Day. You can move the furniture out of the way in your living room, put down blankets and pillows and snuggle up to watch a movie in the comfort of your own home. Don’t forget the snacks!
Take A Trip Down Memory Lane
Spend the evening looking at old photos and telling stories about the people and places in them. Dig out those old photo albums and reminisce about when times were simpler. This will be a great way to reconnect with your sweetie and share some laughs and maybe even a few tears.
Have A Dance Party
When was the last time you went out dancing? If the thought of going out to a crowded nightclub where everyone can see your out-of-style dance moves terrifies you, take the club to your living room. Clear out some space, play your favorite tunes, dim the lights, and have a dance party! Don’t forget to include some slow jams…
Have A Game Night
Valentine’s Day is about spending time with the one you love, but that doesn’t mean it has to be full of mushy romance. Having a game night is a great way to connect and spend quality time with your partner without feeling over the top. Whether you get out your favorite board game or see what you can come up with using a deck of cards, this could make for a very fun evening.
Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be stressful. It should be a day to show the one you love how much you appreciate them and enjoy spending time with them. Whatever you end up doing, have tons of fun! Happy Valentine’s Day!
