Fun & Flirty At-Home Date Ideas
Watch a Romantic Movie
Whether cheesy and predictable or sweeping and dramatic, there’s nothing more romantic than cheering on two people who are perfect together and finally watching them have their happy ending. Rom-coms reinforce the power of love.
Either a sexy game of poker between just the two of you or a fun, family game that gets everyone involved and having a good time, board games, or video games are fun ways to strengthen the bonds of love.
Cook a Romantic Dinner Together
Why go out when you can create a gourmet meal at home just the way you like it? Make it a joint venture between two people makes a lot more fun, enjoyable, and delicious. Don’t know how to cook? Check out the next tip.
Take an Online Class Together
With YouTube and sites like MasterClass.com, it’s easy to learn how to become better at something. Take video cooking classes from Gordon Ramsy or other famous chefs on MasterClass.com, or move back the furniture and take an online dance class from ballroom to hip-hop; you’ll find something you can all enjoy.
Set the Mood
To really make Valentine’s Day stand out from any other day, set the mood by ordering several beautiful bouquets of romantic fresh flowers, decorate with hearts and red decor, light candles, play some romantic music, dress-up in your best clothes, dance the night away, and have Valentine’s Day ever at home.
Get Cozy by the Fire
Bundle up and enjoy the chilly February night next to a firepit or inside by the fireplace. Make smores, drink wine, and just let the conversation flow for a night like you used to have when you first began dating.
Create a Bucket List Together
Make a list of everything you and your partner really want to see or do in their lifetime. Include family members in this one as well and discover something new about them.
Instead of spending $3-$6 on a card manufactured for the populace, create your own. Use paint, glitter, sticker, stamps, colored pencils or markers… etc., and come up with a personal saying to your loved ones better than any greeting card company can. This is a fun and sentimental activity for couples or the whole family.
Spread the Love
Send or Give Flowers
Show someone how much they mean to you by sending them beautiful seasonal flowers like our Adored bouquet for Valentine’s Day. Whether it’s a sister, friend, grandmother, or neighbor, spread the love and brighten someone’s day.
Pay It Forward
Buy someone their coffee or lunch, write a glowing review of a local shop you love, buy a bunch of fresh flowers or roses and pass them out to random people and watch their faces light up.
Create a spa day at home for yourself, read a new book, or watch all your favorite movies while enjoying your favorite food and drinks.
Whether with your mate, your friends, family, or by yourself, celebrating a day of love is all about showing love focusing on happy, intimate moments. Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
