Enjoy Breakfast in Bed
Start the day properly by serving a romantic Valentine’s Day breakfast and then enjoying it together lying in bed. Don’t forget the champagne!
Go on a Hike
Would you like to take a trip into nature this year? Take a hike together and enjoy all the beautiful sights and the fresh air – it’s a great way to connect and get the much-needed time to switch off.
Exchange Love Letters
Is there anything more romantic than writing a love letter to your loved one? Make Valentine’s Day even more special by writing down why your partner means so much to you.
Have a Game Night
For those with a competitive vein (or those who just like good, old-fashioned fun), an exciting evening with board games is the perfect way to make Valentine’s Day unforgettable – especially when wine is in play!
Make Some Crafts
Get creative and enjoy a special valentine’s day craft evening, complete with wine, snacks and lots of fun. You can give each other a homemade Valentine’s Day gift or even compete for who can do the better (or more creative) craft work!
Plan a Movie Marathon
To relax with your partner, make yourself comfortable on the couch and see your favorite romances. This is the perfect way to get in the mood for a bit of Valentine’s Day romance!
It is said that food is the way to the heart, so why not prepare a romantic Valentine’s Day meal together? You can even try a virtual cooking class – this is a great way to replace the traditional dinner date with something practical.
Have a Valentine’s Bake-off
In true Great British Baking Show fashion, you can host a friendly competition in the kitchen to see who can prepare the best (and most festive) desserts for Valentine’s Day – extra points for anything that’s heart-shaped, of course.
Take a Relaxing Bath
Put in the warm water, add your favorite essential oil or bath bomb and forget your worries. Oh, and don’t leave out the candles and the music.
Rent a Cozy Cabin in the Woods
Who doesn’t love a weekend trip to the woods? Take advantage of the warm weather and escape into the wilderness, where you can relax by the fire and enjoy a hot chocolate.
Have an Indoor Picnic
The winter weather doesn’t have to stop you from planning the most romantic date of all – a picnic meal. Bring out a checkered tablecloth and your best Valentine’s Day recipes for a sweet indoor picnic date that your partner won’t forget.
Take a Dance Lesson Together
Take a journey back in time by recreating your favorite appointment, whether it’s your first date or the one you fell in love with. Even if you can’t go to the same restaurant, you can get creative and cook the same food at home!
Share a Romantic Night Under the Stars
Skip the traditional dinner and go to a dance lesson with your partner (even if it’s a virtual hour at home!). It’s a perfect way to get closer and create a sweet memory.
Head to a Museum
You can go camping or just settle down for a few hours at night in a place where the stars can be seen. If it’s too cold outside, you can also go to a planetarium to experience a similar mood.
Although many museums are closed this year, some offer virtual tours online – a great experience to share with your partner. Be ready to experience some unexpected emotions and thoughtful conversations!
Spend the Night in a Fancy Hotel Room
Or, if you prefer to create your own masterpiece, put on your best creative cap and take a brush in your hand. If you’re a beginner, you can recreate videos at home with Bob Ross!
Visit a Conservatory or Botanical Garden
Make your Valentine’s Day special by checking into a nearby hotel, wrapping yourself in a plush bathrobe and calling for room service. Enjoy the night with your partner (or alone!), and you’ll definitely order breakfast in bed the next morning.
Head to the Ice Rink
Go beyond the traditional red roses this year and show your loved one an entire garden full of beautiful flowers. This is a great photo motif and you can take a nice, romantic walk in nature with your loved one.
Have a Wine and Cheese Night
Whether you’re a professional or a newcomer, ice skating with your loved one is as romantic as it sounds. Even if you fall, someone will be there to catch you!
Have a Wine and Cheese Night
Open your favorite bottle of wine after preparing a chic homemade sausage board with bread, cheese and delicious meat. Then the good time can begin!
Sing Your Heart Out With Karaoke
Do you have a karaoke machine? Sing your special duet song together. After all, science has proven that singing together with your partner or best friends leads to a strong bond.
Book an at-Home Massage
Turn your home into a spa with apps like Soothe and Zeel. The best part is that you can fall asleep immediately afterwards because you don’t have a long way home.
Play at an Arcade
Relive your competitive side for an evening of street racing and skee ball in the local arcade – and win a cute teddy bear for your loved one as a sweet Valentine’s Day souvenir.
Stretch It Out at Yoga
Enjoy a little Zen time together by stretching out and centering your mind. Make it even more romantic by doing couple yoga, which can help you feel even more connected.
Listen to Music Together
As we’ve all seen in one of the most romantic films of all time – La La Land – there’s nothing that can bring two people together like music. If you feel like going all out, you can even try to recreate a jazz club date at home: dress smartly, grab a drink and put on a few notes!
