Valentine’s Day is a special time to celebrate the bond between two people in love. If you’re looking for some ideas to enjoy with your significant other, there are plenty of ways to make it extra special without leaving your home. Here are just a few ideas that will make this year’s celebration unique and unforgettable.
Create an Indoor Picnic
An indoor picnic is a fun and creative way to spend quality time with your partner while getting cozy inside. Put together a spread of delicious food and drinks, grab a blanket, and find a spot in the living room or bedroom to set up the picnic. The important thing here is to set the scene so the mood will be just right. Add some candles or fairy lights and flowers around the area to make it extra romantic. Select the right mood setting music, or pick a movie you'll both enjoy.
Have a Wine & Cheese Game Night
Set up a romantic charcuterie board with cheese, crackers, nuts & fruit and pair it with wine or sparkling juice (whatever suits your fancy). Gather around the living room table with pillows & blankets for extra coziness. Put on some music. Choose a boardgame or card game to play. Choose games that work for two players like Off Topic, Codename: Duet, and Yahtzee. Or choose couples games like Monogamy, Talk Flirt Date, or Love Language. Another really good option is a customized game. You can make or buy custom Jenga blocks like the one shown at this link: Couples Jenga

Create an At-Home Spa Day
Pamper each other by setting up an at-home spa day! Pre-organize your spa treatments on a pretty tray. You may want to include fragranced massage oils, a wood roller, hot stones and face masks. Dim the lights and place scented candles around. Add rose petals for an uber romantic feel. Turn on soothing sounds. You can find soothing music playlists on any music streaming app. I like to use Spotify. Another idea is to draw a warm bubble bath for two with bath salts, rose petals or essential oils. Afterward you can relax in bed with a face mask and watch a good movie together.

Have a Romantic Candle lit Dinner
Bring back the 90s on this one! Set the scene like Nia Long in Soul Food when Bird got her Ex to hook Lem up with a job. Make it THAT sexy, minus the ex factor, plus a bomb ass home cooked meal. Plan your menu ahead of time. Pick a meal that he likes. Prepare it the way he likes it. Have a full course meal with starters, soup/salad, dinner and dessert. Have fresh flowers for your table centerpiece. Pull out the good tableware. Add some special touches. Dim the lights. Light candles, and wear something sexy!
