Seven Romantic At-Home Date Ideas
Play Nostalgic Board Games
The best way to pass the time as a kid was by playing board games. “Battleship,” “Checkers,” and “Monopoly” are just a few classic favorites. Take your Valentine back in time with you as you dig out your old nostalgic board games. You’ll have a fun day of friendly stress-free competition.
Have a Picnic Inside
Instead of reservations at a crowded restaurant, turn your living room into a romantic dinner spot for you and your Valentine. Light candles, turn on the fireplace, dim the lights, and add fresh flowers to the coffee table. Order your favorite foods or spend time cooking the perfect meal to enjoy with your sweetheart. You can stay and drink here all night long.
Write a Couple’s Bucket List
While a romantic mood is set, it’s time to start daydreaming with your sweetheart. Create your couple’s bucket list with grand journies to embark on together, wonders to see, and thrilling activities to try. You won’t be able to wait to start your adventurous future together.
Send Beautiful Blooms
Don’t keep all the love and romance to yourself this Valentine’s Day. Spread the love with wonderful flowers. As you get cozy with your love, choose the perfect blooms and arrange special deliveries to family, friends, and neighbors. They’ll be overcome with joy knowing you kept them in your heart this year as they admire a beautiful bouquet, like our “Juliet” arrangement.
Deliver Homemade Gifts
Looking for a way to make this year special for your community? Have yourself a day of arts and crafts and make homemade cards, write uplifting notes, or take on some more involved art projects like knitting or candle making. Deliver these unique crafts to local organizations, community hospitals, or neighborhood nursing homes. You’re sure to put smiles on faces and love in the hearts of others.
Go On a Romantic Walk
Leave your phones at home as you enjoy a peaceful stroll with your sweetheart. Bring along some hot beverages like cocoa, tea, or coffee to keep you warm as you get some fresh air. Enjoy new scenery like the trees in a nearby park or homes in your neighborhood, and spark some fresh conversation.
Have a Movie Marathon
Before the date begins, you’ll each need to create a list of what you think are the best films ever made. Write them on slips of paper to put into a hat or bowl. Take turns pulling movies and enjoy them together. Tell your partner why these movies are the best while you share some wine and popcorn.
Make this day special for yourself or for someone else. Might we suggest brightening the day with breathtaking blooms from Expressions Unlimited? Enjoy your day of love, however you choose to celebrate. Happy Valentine’s Day!
