5 Ways to Make Valentine’s Day Special at Home

Valentine’s Day make look a bit different this year, but that doesn’t mean the sentiment and the romance need to change. If you’re spending it safely at home, there are plenty of things you can do to make it special. Check it out.

1. Have dinner and a movie

Just like old times, a romantic candlelit dinner and a movie are totally doable at home. You can whip up an entire meal with Cash Back from Rakuten. Opt for a meal delivery kit like HelloFresh or Blue Apron for a quick and easy dinner, or pick up steaks from Chicago Steak Company or specialty seafood from Fulton Fish Market. Don’t forget the wine – we love Winc – and chocolate-covered strawberries to top things off.

2. Have a paint night

Grab your beverage of choice, pick up some art materials from Blick Art Materials or Michaels and get to painting. There are plenty of ways to approach this: Find a virtual class online, choose a picture to paint together or keep it a surprise until the end.

3. Learn something new together

Nowadays, you can find so many things to do online, including virtual classes. Use Valentine’s Day as the perfect excuse to treat you and your partner to something new and fun you can do together. There are virtual dance classes, mixology classes, cooking classes and so much more.


4. Create an at-home spa

Doesn’t spa day at home sound heavenly? Order a few bath bombs, body oils and lotions, bubble bath soaps and maybe even a bottle of bubbly for the most perfect night in.

5. Have breakfast in bed 

While it’s probably best that both of you get out of bed to cook for this one, it will be even more fun to do it together. This heart-shaped mini waffle maker is perfect for the occasion, and there is absolutely no shame in eating this in bed and staying in after.
