10 Feb Sweet Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Bae at Home
Valentine’s Day is steadily approaching, and this year we’re celebrating differently. This Valentine’s Day we’re staying at home, but just because it’s an indoor affair doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate.
If you’re worried about what to do during Valentine’s Day: Quarantine Edition, fear not! Check out these ideas for you and your partner to do on Cupid’s holiday.
Make a Charcuterie Board
Charcuterie boards are the latest food craze. If you’ve gone on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve seen just about everyone making their very own charcuterie board.
This cheese, jam, and crackers combination gives off a classy vibe without breaking the bank. Pair your favorite items to go with your wine of choice and have yourself an elegant Valentine’s Day snack board for you and your partner.
If the typical charcuterie cheese theme is not for you, replace the usual items with Valentine’s chocolates and candies to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Giving Gift Voucher’s
Homemade vouchers are a Valentine’s Day gift staple and the amount of vouchers you create is completely up to you.
This gift is perfect to use at your at home celebration.
These “coupon’s” can have things ranging from “One breakfast in bed” to something a bit more risqué like “One body massage”. You can really tailor this gift to fit the interests of you and your partner.
Make a DIY Card
An at home Valentine’s Day seems like the perfect opportunity to get crafty. Make your special someone a card to really show how much you feel about them.
A card is the way to get as sentimental as you please. Because we aren’t able to go out and do anything huge this year, pouring it all out into a card is the way to make this day really sweet. Make an activity out of this with your partner and plan to sit down and make your cards.
You don’t have to break the bank to show you care. Cards give you the perfect opportunity to be vulnerable with your other half.
This one is for the long distance lovers spending the holiday apart this year.
A classic dinner and a movie date via FaceTime can help you feel connected to your other half. Usually, a dinner and movie date is seen as the corny date blueprint, but for Valentine’s Day it’s okay to get a little corny, especially if the corniness can really set the date tone even when you’re miles apart.
Plan to eat the same take out or cook the same food, set a candle, drink some wine and the dinner date mood is there! Finish the night by watching a film with your partner and you’ll have had yourself a full fledged virtual date!
Have a Paint Date
Have a paint party for two with your better half as you channel your inner Bob Ross this holiday. This is a fun light hearted activity that can help you both unwind and marvel at your creative ability, or poke fun at your artistic attempt.
There are virtual painting classes available to take this paint date up a notch! As a couple, you can pick from multiple virtual events that all show what painting will be taught during the session.
Painting can also be apart of sexy Valentine’s Day activities. Spice things up with body paint, so you and your significant other can substitute the canvas for each other.
Decorate for the Special Day
Staying home for yet another holiday can bring one’s spirit down and if you don’t know how to get out of this funk decorating can be a great solution!
Transform your home into a lover’s paradise with red and pink decorations. Decorating changes the ambiance and can help put you in the Valentine’s Day mood.
This is a simple way to get into the spirit of the holiday without leaving your home. You can find many online DIY Valentine’s decorations to recreate or get inspiration from, especially on apps like Pinterest.
There is no need to spend tons of money on this day but decorating can be a cute activity for you and your significant other to feel just a little more special on February 14.
