Valentine’s Day Ideas: Date Night In


Valentine’s Day is a special time to celebrate sacred love and romance, whether that be solo or with your special someone. While going out on a fancy date can be fun, a thoughtful alternative is to spend the evening at home and curate some special experiences for the two of you to share (or solo!).

Here are a few ideas for a romantic and memorable date night at home:

Dinner for Two

Create a romantic dinner date at home. Cook a special meal together or order in from a fancy restaurant. Set up a tablescape worthy of a romantic evening; light some candles, set the table with luxury dishes and linens, with a stunner centerpiece, and enjoy an exquisite dinner together.

Movie Night

Choose a romantic film or a classic you both love, snuggle up on the couch, and enjoy some popcorn or other snacks. Take this one a step further by setting up a fort or a mattress in the living room! Get playful and enjoy your evening together. 

Spa Special

Grab your fancy robes, cucumber slices and bath bombs! Enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub, give each other massages, and use face masks for a spa-like experience at home. Bonus points for a fresh bathmat, candlelight, soft music and rose petals.


Put on your favorite romantic songs and dance the night away in the living room. Add special effects like moody candlelight, add some wine, and go the extra mile by dressing up as though you were going out! 


Perhaps there are some small-scale DIY projects you’ve been wanting to get creative with? Whether it’s painting, drawing, pottery kits, or doing a puzzle, working on a creative project together can be a fun and bonding experience. 

Beer or Wine Tasting Experience

Choose a few local bottles or cans of different varieties and taste them together while discussing the different flavors and aromas. To take it a step further for the connoisseurs, grab some favourites and test each other blindfolded!


Remember, that the most important thing is to spend time together and make memories. You can make it as simple or elaborate as you’d like, but most importantly, enjoy your time together.
