How to Celebrate Valentine's Day at Home

Check Out These 5 Creative Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day at Home

While holidays and special occasions continue to look a  little different than expected, it’s important to know that you can still celebrate with loved ones, even if it's at a distance. These socially-distanced  ideas to celebrate Valentine’s Day are perfect for an evening inside!


Have An Indoor Picnic

Whether you’re celebrating with someone in your home or celebrating virtually, preparing a picnic can be a fun and easy way to switch it up this Valentine’s Day! Consider setting up your picnic in a room you don’t typically eat in, such as a sitting room or in front of a fireplace. Spread out a comfy blanket that you don’t mind eating over and put on some instrumental music in the background. You can even light candles as a subtle way to enhance your experience.  We recommend that if you do light candles, make sure they are a safe distance from other items and ledges to prevent a house fire. 


Plan a Valentine’s Day Movie Marathon 

Plan for as many movies as you can, then go ahead and splurge on the good popcorn and candy! You can make your living room extra comfy by bringing in additional blankets and pillows from around your house. Try hanging string lights in the space for an added ‘wow’ factor. If you have a projector, you might even consider streaming your movies onto a blank wall for a more theater-like experience.


Enjoy a Game Night 

Step up your Valentine’s Day conversation with a trivia night! It’s always fun and surprising to learn new things about one another. If you and your significant other enjoy competition, you might even consider organizing a virtual game night with friends. Or, if it’s a night-in with the family, you can switch to board games!


Bake Something Sweet

Baking can be a fun way to spend time with a significant other or loved one. At the end, you will have a sweet treat to enjoy together! Make the most out of this baking experience by going all out! Pick recipes for your favorite desserts, then throw on some aprons and some music. The most important thing is that you have a good time!


Take an Online Class Together

From cooking classes to “paint ’n sips”, there are a wide variety of online classes that you can take advantage of with your significant other or loved one! This versatile option is perfect whether you live in the same household or not, because it's done online. As long as you have an internet connection and your supplies, you’re good to go!
