So Valentine’s Day is not something huge in our house. Liam turns 5 the day before and our weekend will be filled with celebrating him. Plus, with Covid still crazy we are not comfortable in restaurants. Even before we had kids, we never did anything huge for the holiday. We love to cook at home and spend time together and show each other how much we are loved. So I thought this was the perfect time to share some Valentine’s Dates you can have at home even with the current state of the world. This way you can celebrate the holiday but you can be safe!
Valentine’s Dates You Can Have At Home
The cooking date:
This is SUCH a fun date idea. You can either use a recipe you know or get a meal kit from somewhere and try a new recipe or an old favorite. Turn on music, pour some wine, and really enjoy the process together.
The movie date:
We love a good movie night! It’s fun if you pick something new you both have an interest in or maybe each of you picks a movie you love and share it with the other. Plus there are TONS of great movies to stream right now.
The game night date:
I love games! Andrew not as much, but I think it’s because I always win ha! But playing games together like Scrabble, Scategories, Uno, etc are so fun!
The puzzle date:
We love doing puzzles together. The past several New Years’ Eve’s we’ve done a big puzzle while watching all the stuff on TV and enjoying wine/drinks together. Such a fun way to spend time together AND work together and communicate.
The wine tasting date:
Get a few different types of wine and set up a little wine tasting in your own house. You can even make a cheese plate to go with it!
The project date:
Maybe you have a house project you’ve both been dying to finish, well no time like the present. Get those projects out and work on one together. Try not to argue.
The order in date:
Sometimes you need to just order in food and veg. No time like Valentine’s to do that together. Try a new place or an old favorite and order some of your favorite dishes to split.
Hopefully one of these sticks out to you! If you use one of these Valentine’s dates you can have at home please let me know! I would love to know what you guys end up doing!
I know that it may be disappointing to not be able to go out and do something big but that doesn’t mean you can’t have an amazing Valentine’s date right at home and still make it as special as possible.
