Take an online mixology class
Get creative with your partner from the safety of your home! Learn mixology skills, and don’t forget to take notes on what your partner’s favourite drink is so you can impress them the next time you go out on the town.
Bake something new and fancy
Learn how to make fun or fancy new desserts together! The plus of this idea is that right after you are done baking, you can feed each other your newest creation while it’s still warm to turn up the heat.
Make pizza from scratch
Making pizza from scratch is one of the most exciting processes to watch from start to finish. If you go as far as to create your own pizza dough, make sure to start planing a few days early for the starter to work it’s magic! Then take the time to shape these pizzas as hearts because pizza always tastes better when made with love.
Date nights planned for a year
There are many creative ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day from home this year, one of our favourite ideas is by using date night subscription boxes to keep the date nights flowing, even far after Valentine’s Day has ended! Invest in your relationship this year by signing up for a year of date nights with Crated with Love.
Join an online wine masterclass
You two don’t have to get all dressed up this year; stay in your pyjamas and pop open a bottle of wine. But why not take it up a notch with a virtual wine tasting? You’ll receive an assortment of mini wine bottles for the two of you to explore the world of viticulture from the comfort of your home. Use this opportunity to enjoy quality time together while brushing up on your wine culture.
This might make you feel a little silly, but dancing together can actually strengthen your relationship. So bust a move, and have fun with each other this Valentine’s Day by getting down on your own dancefloor.
Recreate your first date
Remember the night it all started by recreating your first date this Valentine’s Day. Magic happened between you both, and it’s important to revisit those feelings every once in a while to remember where you’ve started, and all that you’ve made it through together as a couple.
Rent a classic car for a mini road trip
If either of you are classic car lovers, this one is for you. Companies such as Great Escape Cars will help you find the car of your dreams to ride through the countryside in style! They rent by the day and have an amazing selection, from an Alfa Romeo Spider to an MGB V8 roadster.
Create a signature cocktail representing your relationship
While this is something many couples do for their weddings, why not do it for Valentine’s Day at home? Decide on a cocktail that represents your relationship, and learn how to create it at home. As a fun bonding exercise, talk through each ingredient and share the reason it represents you and your relationship.
Exchange couples massages at home
Purchase some hot massage stones and have yourselves a night of heaven on earth. Hot stone massages are an intimate way to tell the other person you love them. Who doesn’t want to be rubbed down by their love? This is also a great way to start the night off right and to relax into your evening.
Unplug for the whole day
That’s right. Turn those phones off and unplug the TV because there will be no watching the news tonight. Unplugging from your electronic devices is respectful of the other person and allows ample opportunity for connection and closeness.
Go roller skating
Break out the old roller skates and skate around town. Get some fresh air, vitamin D, and share some laughs with your partner as you reminisce about your relationship.
An escape room
Many escape rooms are offering at-home options for their customers, this is a fun opportunity to grow your communication skills with your partner and do something different this Valentine’s Day.
Pick your favourite movie marathon genre and binge-watch all night long! Make some buttery popcorn and some home-made slushies to really feel like you’re at the movies. Here are some of our favourite Valentine’s Day flicks for you.
Head to a hotel
This just what the doctor ordered! Schedule some time alone by hopping online and picking the closest romantic getaway location. There are unique stays to fit every couple’s needs.
Paint party at home
Get your creative juices flowing by learning to paint in the comfort of your own home. There are plenty of paint kits available online for you and your partner to join in on the fun. For an extra twist, open up a bottle of wine and try to paint a picture of each other to really step out of your comfort zones!
What better way to spend the evening than cuddled up next to a raging fire? This experience can only get better with s’mores and some good conversation.
Glamping in the backyard
You have the opportunity to create a magical night all on your own with just a tent, fluffy blankets, and snacks of your choice. Make it a movie night, or a snuggle marathon. Glamping ideas are all over the internet these days, so feel free to get creative.
Surprise them with their Amazon wishlist
Does your partner have a love language of receiving gifts? If so, this idea will make them feel so loved! The best part is that they’ve already done the hard work for you by finding the gifts they want. All you need to do is purchase them (make sure they don’t receive the shipping notification on your account) and wait to feel the love! Need more of an explanation on love languages?
Plan a trip together
Is this the year you’re finally going to take that fantastic trip somewhere you’ve always dreamed of going? Even if it isn’t, planning a major getaway together gives both of you something to look forward to. Have fun looking up different destinations, accommodation options and tourist attractions you’ve always wanted to tick off your travel bucket list.
Stay in bed
Snuggle your way into the best Valentine’s Day yet. Instead of purchasing one another traditional Valentine’s Day gifts, invest in a new blanket you both can share all year round for perfect cuddling.
Being in a global pandemic may change what your Valentine’s Day looks like this year, but it doesn’t have to change how you two invest in each other. By committing to doing something special this year, and possibly a little different than years past, it tells your partner that you are still invested and ready to take on each new challenge life throws right alongside them. Use this year as an opportunity to step out of your normal routine for Valentine’s Day. If you need a few more ideas, we’ve got you covered.
