This weekend is all about Valentines Day! Being stuck at home this holiday weekend might sound boring, but it’s actually the perfect excuse to plan a special indoor date or family activity. Whether you’re celebrating with your special someone, your family, “Galentines” or “Guyentines,” we’re here to help you plan the ultimate at-home Valentine’s Day bash. Why not go all out this year to make it the most memorable Valentines Day ever?
Make breakfast in bed!
There’s no better way to start the day than with breakfast in bed. Put a tray together for your partner — and don’t forget to include as many heart-shaped food items as possible. It’s a simple way to say “I love you” before your partner even takes a sip of their coffee.
Recreate your first date
If you went to a coffee shop, whip up some artisanal coffees and sit and talk for hours. If you went to a romantic restaurant, print the menu and try to make one of the dishes in your kitchen. If you went to the movies, re-watch the movie and be sure to include all your favorite movie theater snacks, like popcorn, Hot Tamales, and Milk Duds! Get creative and remember to share memories of that first date.
Sure, you and your partner have incredible conversations all the time — but that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from a little inspiration on special occasions. Print these cards and take turns drawing one from the deck. Some great examples include “what song reminds you of a romantic time that we spent together?” to “if we were a superhero tag-team what would our powers be?”
For the Family
Kids love to decorate – who doesn’t?! There are so many cool DIY Valentines’ Day decorations that you can whip up in no time. Wear matching outfits, turn on some music, enjoy your favorite chocolates and get to work!
Take a Class
Card-making is a great way to get crafty and creative. Pull out your art supplies and put together the most festive combinations of pink and red — or anything else! This is a fun activity for kids and adults, and no matter what your relationship status, there’s always someone in your life who would appreciate a DIY Valentine’s Day card.And when you’re done, take it one step further and schedule a video chat with your loved ones and share your sentiments. It will certainly bring a smile to their face.
Have a date night
Schedule a zoom meeting, play games, talk, share cocktail or mocktail recipes. You can even watch a movie together like you’re at your favorite theater, dress up, and make it feel like a real night out.
You might not be able to go out to the hottest restaurant in town this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in a delicious dinner. Put on some tunes, prepare the same meal and eat it together. You can compare notes on recipes.
Send a Valentine
If you can’t be with your friends in person this year, then you might as well send them something special in the mail. Call your local florist and send a flower arrangement, chocolates, or drop off a box of craft beers or coffee. Then, meet up on zoom and enjoy a tasting together.
