How to Celebrate the Perfect Valentine’s Day at Home

Discover how you can arrange the perfect Valentine’s Day date to celebrate at home. 

If you’ve been looking for inspiration on how to celebrate this Valentine’s Day and make it a special day – even when you’re on a budget or the weather is too cold to leave the house – then we have a few recommendations and tips for you.

Tips for Couples Who Live Together

If you and your partner live together and want to make the most out of your Valentine’s Day celebrations while at home, here are a few suggestions.

  • Recreate Your Favourite Restaurant: Even if you both love cooking, why not treat yourselves and order a takeaway from your favourite restaurant?

But don’t just leave it at that, dress up and similarly set your table to how the restaurant would have it set – perhaps add your own romantic touches.

  • Change It Up: Why not change things up completely? Do the complete opposite of what you would normally do and add a twist that you’ll both love. For example, book an online course that you can do together.
  • Treat Yourselves: If you’ve chosen to spend some quality time at home, why not make it the comfiest evening of all? Choose all the indoor activities you enjoy doing together, e.g. a movie night, massages, cooking together, and organise a wholesome, loving day in which you can truly relax.

Tips for Long-Distance Relationships

When living apart, organising a romantic day together can be a little tricky, but there are more options than you may think. Especially with the excellent technology that surrounds us, you can make this Valentine’s Day as wonderful as ever.

Here are some ideas you can do to celebrate your relationship this Valentine’s Day:

  • Send Each Other a Surprise Meal: The fun part about ordering each other food, is that you can truly surprise each other and see how well you know about another. 

    Using any of the many food delivery apps, order each other a meal at the same time. The choice is yours, you can send your partner their favourite meal, your favourite meal or something they’ve never tried before, but you think they’ll enjoy.

    Just keep in mind that this may need some coordination, especially if you want to be on a video call while you unwrap your delivery and enjoy your meal together.
  • Go Old-School: In addition to phoning each other, why not go back to the tried-and-tested method of sending each other love letters, chocolates or flowers? 

    A handwritten note goes a long way in letting your partner know how much you wish you could be with them. And, with many online card creation services, you can even choose your favourite moments and have them printed on a personalised card.
  • One Movie, Two Screens: Even if you live apart, that doesn’t mean you can’t organise a comfy or romantic movie night. Choose a movie you both have access to and stay on the phone while you watch. Although you might be missing the cuddling, you’ll be able to chat throughout and share this experience.

    The hardest part will be pressing play at the same time.

Whatever you choose to do, organising a romantic day or evening should be based on the things you enjoy doing together. Even if you live in different cities, countries or just on the other side of town and can’t see each other, technology has allowed us to connect in so many new ways that can make a loved one feel like they’re only a heartbeat away. 

Happy Valentine’s everyone!
