Valentine's Day is here and lovers are scrambling to come up with the most romantic ideas.
Are you looking for something a little different this year? Why not try celebrating at home instead of spending money and time at that fancy restaurant?
In this article, we've rounded up a few simple romantic Valentine's Day ideas for celebrating at home to help make it feel like a holiday, whether the kiddos are around or fast asleep.
Cook a romantic dinner for two
Many times, couples go out to some fancy restaurant on Valentine's Day. While this can be a lot of fun, it can also be expensive. This year, why not try cooking a romantic dinner for two at home? You can choose your favourite recipes or even come up with something new together. This particular process will help you two bond even more.
To make things extra special, set the table with candles and rose petals. And don't forget the champagne!
Make a playlist of your favourite love songs
Imagine you and your partner sitting at a table in your house, drinking champagne, then standing up to dance to classic Celine Dion or Stevie Wonder songs. Doesn't that sound romantic?
Making a playlist of your favourite love songs is a great way to set the mood on Valentine's Day. You can either put it on while you cook dinner or have it playing in the background while you relax after dinner.
Whatever you do, make sure to spend some quality time alone listening to your favorite tunes.
Book an at-home massage
Bring a couple's massage into the comfort (and safety!) of your home when you schedule an in-home Thai massage. With same-day scheduling in select locations and time slots as late as 10 p.m., you can easily enjoy a relaxing spa experience with your partner after the kids hit the sack.
Draw a bath with candles and rose petals
If you have watched the Netflix show, Too Hot To Handle, you would know just how romantic a bath can be. Add a few candles and some rose petals, and you have yourself a Valentine's Day spa experience right in your own home.
Not only is this a great way to relax after a long day, but it's also a very intimate activity for the two of you to enjoy together.
Plan an at-home date night scavenger hunt
A scavenger hunt involves hiding items or clues around the house for someone to find. Why not use this concept to plan an at-home date night?
Create a list of tasks that you and your partner will need to complete in order to finish the scavenger hunt. This could include things like making a dessert, watching a movie, or taking a walk outside.
The best part about this idea is that you can make it as difficult or easy as you want. Just be sure to have a prize waiting for the winner!
Make Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed
Breakfast in bed is a classic romantic gesture that never gets old. Why not make it extra special this year by cooking your partner their favorite breakfast?
If you're feeling really ambitious, you could even prepare the entire meal yourself. From eggs to bacon to pancakes, there are plenty of delicious recipes to choose from.
Cuddle up and watch a movie together
There are only a few things more romantic than cuddling up on the couch with your partner to watch a movie. This Valentine's day, why not choose a love story to watch together?
If you're looking for something a little more action-packed, you could always opt for a thriller or comedy instead. The important thing is that you spend the day together, enjoying each other's company.
