Even before the isolation, many people still like to celebrate Valentine's Day indoors to avoid the hustle and bustle of the holiday. Now, even though we may restrict going out, there has never been a more interesting dating option. Whether planning a date or establishing a relationship with a partner, the trick is to truly commit to dating. Whatever your date's theme may be, go all out with the decor, outfits, and food. Below, we shared 5 ideas for an unforgettable Valentine's Day at home (most of them can be adapted to be equally fun things with friends).
1. Have an Indoor Picnic
Spread a nice picnic blanket on the floor of the living room, put on gourmet delicacies (we like this lobster roll and sea salt brownies kit from Maine) and a bottle of bubbles. Don't forget to prepare a warm throw blanket, white goose down is the best. Set up the scene and pack the basket-if you don't have one, it's worth buying.
2. Relax with Some Movies
Create a private movie theater in your house with a projector and screen a romantic movie. That's a proper date night. Start with Baz Luhrmann's Romeo & Juliet or embark on a trilogy like the Matrix or Before Sunrise and enjoy a luxuriously lazy evening on the sofa. Of course, you are going to need popcorn and a warm throw blanket, splurge on the good stuff.
3. Take a Virtual Cooking Class Together
If food is the way to your significant other's heart, skip that fancy-schmancy dinner and take a virtual cooking class together. Sign up for a virtual cooking class to make preparing Valentine’s Day dinner special.
4. Workout Together
Have a blast having a family fun cardio workout on YouTube! Workout with your lover and children to stay healthy. Enjoy the joy of sweating together.
5. Relax for a Spa Day
If you don't plan to go to the spa on the weekend, just enjoy it at home. Massage each other with stress-relieving oil and take a long bubble bath. If you haven't enjoyed enough, distract yourself, then relax with a moisturizing mask. Either way, you will end the day with a special Valentine's Day light.
