5 Fun and Unique Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day at Home

February 10, 2021

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and, like most things over the past year, it’s going to look a little different this time around. You’re probably planning on staying home with your loved ones this year—and that’s the safest choice for everyone! But that doesn’t mean the evening should be any less special than usual. Here are a few ways to celebrate the holiday in your own space.

  1. Screen your favorite rom-coms. Going to the movie theater may not be in the cards at the moment, so recreate the experience at home with your significant other, or if he or she is deployed, some friends or family members. Fill your living room with tons of cozy throw pillows and blankets, pop some popcorn, grab some candy hearts and chocolates, and binge your favorite romantic comedies.

  2. Order some extra-fancy takeout. Bring the fine dining experience home for Valentine’s Day! Splurge on a special meal from your favorite upscale restaurant, or try a new place you’ve been eyeing up. Many restaurants are offering special takeout packages in honor of Valentine’s Day, so see if you can find some surf-and-turf to-go! You might also want to try a tapas restaurant that allows you to share an array of dishes with your better half. The taste-testing aspect of the meal could be a fun twist to your V-Day dinner.

  3. Take a virtual class. From cooking to flower arranging, you can learn how to do just about anything online these days! And in honor of Valentine’s Day, you should be able to find many local businesses hosting virtual classes geared toward couples, both platonic and romantic. Search Eventbrite for local options—you might just stumble upon a new hobby! If you can’t find something online to try, make your own cooking class by choosing a new recipe, gathering the ingredients, and printing out the instructions. Bonus points if you add a festive border to the print-out!

  4. Plan a game night for two. If you and that special someone have been enjoying game nights over the past few months, throw on some romantic music and break out your favorite game! From UNO to Jenga, just about any game can be fun and romantic when you’re playing it with your valentine. But if you want to try something designed specifically to foster deeper relationships, order We’re Not Really Strangers. The game poses thought-provoking questions that will help you get to know your partner even better.

  5. DIY a batch of artisan chocolates. Join forces with your significant other in the kitchen! There are a couple of ways to go about this. You can simply order a box of chocolates from your favorite local shop and DIY a chocolate tasting, complete with your favorite coffee or tea, or order a chocolate-making kit like this one. It comes with everything you need to craft your own chocolates, including high-quality ingredients, step-by-step instructions, and reusable tools.
