Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching! With current events, finding a place to go for your Valentine’s Day date night might seem challenging but it doesn’t have to be. Date nights from home can be just as romantic and special as they would be if you were to go out to a fancy restaurant. Check out these 6 ideas for you and your significant other!
1. Cook your favorite meal
If you can’t go to a restaurant, bring one to your home! Look up a meal that you both decide on or one that you have never attempted to cook before and give it a try…together! Cooking is a great way to bond. Put your devices away and enjoy the moment you have together. Your meal can be something that you are both proud of. You can get dressed up and set your table as if you are in a restaurant or make it fun and have a picnic in the living room!
2. Movie Night
Movie night is a classic type of date night that never gets old! Each of you can choose your favorite movie, one that you are not the biggest fan of, and one that you have never seen before. This is a fun way to learn more about your partner’s cinematic interests while celebrating Valentine’s Day from home. Don’t forget the candy and popcorn!
3. Painting With a Twist
Time to let your artistic talents shine! Grab a canvas for each of you and some paints and have a paint night. You can paint anything from a portrait of each other to your partner’s favorite meme! This is sure to keep you entertained and laughing. Plus, you never know…your significant other could be an undiscovered Picasso!
4. Game Night
You can never go wrong with game night! From board games to video games, there’s nothing like a healthy competition on Valentine’s Day. Play anything from the classics such as Uno and Monopoly to throwbacks such as Life, Sorry, and Candyland!
5. Chocolate tasting
Is there anything that says Valentine’s Day more than chocolate? Try having your own chocolate tasting! Buy a variety of chocolates from the store and see if you can discover a new favorite. You can even make a game of it by blindfolding yourself and seeing if you can guess which brand of chocolate is which!
6. Camping out
Time to go camping…in the living room! For some, this was one of the best parts of sleepovers growing up but who says it’s only for kids? Make a blanket fort, grab snacks, tell spooky stories, and camp out in your living room. This is a fun and comfy way to spend time together!
As you can see, there are many different ways that you can make Valentine’s Day fun right from the comfort of your own home this year. The most important thing is spending time and enjoying the moment with your loved one!
