When it comes to Valentine’s Day this year, it is likely we will need to stay in and spend some quality romance time with the one you love? Restaurants and bars usually get crowded and noisy on February 14th, but with lockdown this year, we will probably have a more relaxed time being at home.
A year off from judging first daters and bored couples, you’ll save yourself some cash and can still spoil your special someone. Choose any of our top seven ideas below for a truly special Valentine’s Day at home.
Invest in a good projector and a heavy white sheet and turn your lounge into a cinema for Valentine’s. This could be a pricey one, so set yourself a spending budget and enjoy home movie nights all throughout the year. All that’s left to do is get the popcorn in.
Prepare blankets, pillows and a picnic basket of treats and head out after dark for some romantic stargazing. Spot constellations like Orion’s Belt or download a stargazing app and see where the planets are hiding in the night sky.
Decide on a delicious signature brunch cocktail and keep the drinks flowing while you dine with your significant other. Whether they love a mimosa in the morning, or the caffeine hit of an espresso martini, they’ll feel special and sozzled by your home-made cocktails.

All-day room service
Order a load of beauty treatments and essential oils and spoil yourselves to an at-home spa day. From face packs to massage guns, there are endless ways you can create a spa in the comfort of your living room.
If you’re both social media addicts, why not organise a romantic photoshoot to share with everyone. Go for a long walk in a romantic setting or set up a studio in the loft. As long as you’re taking beautiful shots, it doesn’t matter where you are.
Painting and wine
Set up two canvasses and tables for glasses and get creative this Valentine’s Day. Decide on a theme or paint funny portraits of each other. You don’t have to be Picasso, just drink some wine and enjoy doing something creative with your other half.
His and Her Gifts
Going on the best part about Valentine’s Day is finding that perfect, special gift for your partner. I love thinking of unique gifts or useful things he might really need but hasn’t treated himself too. Gift giving is one of my favorite things to do for the ones I love.
