Covid dampening your plans for Valentines Day this year? You are not alone. Dont worry though, we have got you covered. You can still have an amazing Valentines day with your partner from the comfort of your own home.
Here are some amazing stay-at-home date night ideas that you can try this year for an intimate and romantic Valentines day in:
Pretend you both are in your favorite country
Relive the memories of your favorite country that you visited together and recreate those special times at home. Set up a themed table with decor from your favorite country, prepare your favorite dishes for dinner and dessert from that country, dress up like a local (if you brought some memorabilia), along with some their local drinks. Transport yourselves to that special time - it could be to the hills of Tuscan valley, streets of Japan, local souks in Marrakech, enjoying wine and cheese in France, or even sharing a bowl of hot Maggi in the mountains of Himachal.
If you have a backyard, set up a tent and spend the night outdoors. Set up a travel stove and make a bowl of delicious instant noodles. Load your favorite movie on your laptop and end the night by roasting some marshmallow.
If you don't have a backyard then simply set up the tent in your living room and enjoy your favorite food, movie and dessert with each other. This is a very cozy valentines day idea for your partner.
Bartend for each other. Set up different ingredients and save some cocktail recipes that you have always wanted to try. Take turns to make then and make it into a fun cocktail tasting night.
Want a romantic Valentines day idea? Start your romantic night with delicious cheese fondue as an appetizer. End your night with chocolate fondue because this day deserves a little extra romance. Don't you agree?
If you and your partner are movie buffs then have a movie marathon. Load up all your favorite movies, romantic or otherwise, gather your favorite movie time snacks and treats and enjoy your night.
If you and partner love books, have a 2 person book club night. Create a cozy reading nook in your living room - grab 2 chairs, keep a table in between with your favorite drinks, choose 2 copies of the same book and read it together. Doesnt it sound like a perfect date night?
Paint Party for two
If your partner loves to paint or DIY then this date night idea is perfect for you. Create an arts table with paints and paper and let your creativity flow. You could also select an image that you both want to recreate and have a blast with it. Make a big batch of Sangrias to make it into a super fun date night.
Book an online class for a hobby that your partner enjoys
Book a private class with a tutor online for a hobby that your partner enjoys. It could be with their favorite yoga instructor, art tutor, chef, calligraphy teacher, etc. Dig deep and earn those extra brownie points and perhaps a new skill set.
Best memories are always created around food. So have a delicious meal with your partner, choose your favorite stay at home date night activity and stay safe this Valentines day.
