How Can We Celebrate Valentine’s Day at Home? — Here Are Unique Ideas

8 February 2023

A red heart stamped on a white postcard is a classic gift to give on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, and you want to show your special someone how much they truly mean to you. Maybe you could go out and celebrate, but if you’re more comfortable staying at home, there are plenty of things you can do to make sure you get your romantic message across.

Here are some ideas and ways to make your Valentine’s Day at home extra special:

Make Breakfast in Bed

Getting up early to make breakfast in bed for your loved one is a great idea for Valentine’s Day.  Serve up some delectable breakfast and snuggle up to enjoy it together. There are lots of delicious breakfast recipes to make, including the classics like oatmeal or eggs and toast and more unusual options like breakfast burritos.

Make it extra special by: 

Serving the breakfast tray with your partner’s favorite book or magazine. You might also want to include some heart-shaped items, such as waffles or cookies.

Have a Netflix Marathon

What better way to start off a romantic day than by watching some of your favorite Netflix shows together? Create a list of you and your partner’s favorite movies and watch them together.  No matter what you choose, try to make it more personal and memorable.

Make it extra special by: 

Watching not just one but several movies together. Bring out the caramel popcorn, candies, or chocolates in a heart-shaped box. Splurge on some good snacks while getting cozy on the couch.

Recreate Your First Date

You’re going to need to get creative here. Make a list of everything you did together on your first date, and then do what you can to recreate it. See if you can make something similar in your kitchen or in your bedroom. Don’t forget to include things like food and drink.

Make it extra special by: 

Making a slideshow of the memories that you had on your first date; your first picture together or the meal you had on that day.

Get To Know Your Partner… Better

Connecting on a more intimate level is quite easy to do. Prepare a list of questions (or use this one) and ask about how your partner feels about your relationship. Open up and get to know each other better. You may be surprised by some of the new things you’ll learn about your partner. 

Make it extra special by: 

Organizing a virtual date night with other couples and playing a game that will test how well you know your own partners. Compete against other couples and make sure the winning team gets a prize.

Play Board Games

Your favorite board game is a great way to spend some time together as a couple. Having fun together is one of the most essential things for a happy relationship. Studies show that couples who laugh together are more likely to be satisfied with their relationships than other couples. You might be surprised to learn that you won’t need any fancy gadgets or expensive equipment to get into some fun on Valentine’s Day.

Make it extra special by: 

Putting on a cozy pair of pajamas. Don’t forget to grab plenty of chips and candies, and open a bottle of your favorite drink.

Pop a Bottle to Celebrate Love

Pop a bottle of champagne or red wine to celebrate love. After all, being together is already enough reason to celebrate. Use your favorite glasses and call for a toast. Feel free to add a short and sweet message or a romantic and meaningful quote.

Make it extra special by:

Pairing it with your favorite homemade charcuterie boards, including crusty bread, artisan cheese, cured meats, and olives. 

Channel Your Inner Mixologist

Mix up some drinks using ingredients from the bar you haven’t used in ages. Cocktails (and mocktails) are always fun and there’s nothing better than shaking it up for someone you care about and enjoying a cocktail or two.

Make it extra special by: 

Mixing a red drink to add a dash of romance. Give your drinks cute names or decorations that tie into the Valentine’s Day theme and make them feel extra special.

Prepare a Romantic Dinner

They say that the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach. Your partner will be touched by your efforts to prepare a meal that shows you care about them. Their hearts will melt as they enjoy a delicious meal prepared especially for them.

Cooking together is also a great way to bond with them. And while you’re busy whipping up a tasty meal, you can also enjoy each other’s company without any distractions.

Make it extra special by: 

Attending virtual cooking classes. This allows you to cook without leaving your home and, with some help from your computer or phone, you can learn how to make delicious recipes from scratch to scrumptious.

Chocolate Fondue for Two

How about some fresh, homemade, chocolate-dipped strawberries?

You can make chocolate fondue without having to go anywhere. It requires no cooking skills and can be enjoyed by everyone. You can make it with any ingredients you and your partner prefer, like bananas, apples, marshmallows, cookies, etc.

Make it extra special by: 

Setting-up your fondue on top of a small coffee table and placing it in front of the window where there is a beautiful view. You can enjoy your dessert while enjoying the beautiful view.

Take a Relaxing Bath

To perfectly end your Valentine’s Day, enjoy a nice soak in a hot tub or bath together with your partner.

Make it extra special by:

Playing some relaxing music and adding some essential oils to your tub to help you and your partner relax.  Bath bombs are a great way to add some fun to your bath! 


There are lots of ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day at home. No matter whether you are planning a date night or just a casual dinner, there are plenty of inexpensive and fun ideas that will make the day memorable.
