Celebrating this holiday can still be fun and exciting, even if you spend it lounging on the couch! Below are a few suggestions for an at-home Valentine’s Day, including culinary delights, romantic decor, and unique entertainment for you and your partner.

Valentine's Cocktails

Are you ready to try Cupid’s favorite cocktails? Buy key ingredients like a heart-shaped ice mold, red cherries and strawberries, edible flowers, and your preferred alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks for a fun night with your beloved. To raise the stakes, have a competition to see who can make the best Valentine’s cocktail. The winner takes all!

Arrange a Valentine’s Charcuterie Board

If cooking a complicated dinner isn’t your ideal Valentine’s activity, try making a charcuterie board instead. This easy dinner idea combines your favorite delectable cheeses, deli meats, crackers, and sweet treats like dates, figs, and chocolate for a snack-like entree you’ll both love. Get creative with the charcuterie board using various display boards and ingredients. You can also assemble a second board with only desserts – the options are endless!

At Home Wine Tasting

Host an At-Home Wine Tasting

Calling all wine connoisseurs! A fancy cocktail contest is a great option, but an at-home wine tasting could be just as fun without as much work. Shop for the best 5-7 wines for a robust tasting, or purchase a wine tasting kit with information and tasting cards for a complete luxury experience.

Try a Canvas Painting Activity

If your favorite thing about Valentine’s Day is doing an activity together, bring out your artistic side this year and paint canvases at home. Choose a romantic design or freestyle paint and show one another the results at the end of the evening. Those who prefer a clear artistic direction can purchase a paint-by-number kit or sign up for a virtual painting class. Head to your favorite arts and crafts store for supplies, as craft stores typically have holiday-themed sales and other cool DIY projects to purchase. Whatever you choose, this is a unique and cost-friendly way to celebrate Valentine’s indoors, try something new with your partner, and create a beautiful piece of art that symbolizes your love for each other.

Pamper Yourselves With a Spa Night

Camp out on the Patio or in the Backyard

Don’t confine yourselves indoors for your at-home Valentine’s Day. Enjoy your entire house and use the porch or backyard to camp under the stars! Bring blankets and a picnic lunch or dinner to embrace the theme. If the night is too chilly, consider creating a bonfire in your backyard for warmth. This idea could also help couples with children have more privacy on Valentine’s Day. Check out this guide to see what the sky will look like on Valentine’s Day and stargaze your way around the cosmos.

Bonus Gift Idea: Make a Love Song Playlist

Although you may be planning to order a large flower bouquet and secretly take measurements of your partner’s shoe, wrist, or dress size for your gift-buying needs, what if you tried something different this year? An old-school playlist is an easy way to say “I love you” to someone special. Add songs that remind you of them and tell your love story. You can create the playlist using a shared streaming service like Spotify© or Apple Music© or score extra points by burning a CD, making a cassette mixtape, or buying a custom vinyl record. Put on the music as you cook a romantic dinner, sip wine, and play board games to set the mood for the evening.
