Because who wouldn’t want a truly memorable night full of romance (and lots of chocolate)?
1Enjoy Breakfast in Bed
Start the day off right by serving up a romantic Valentine’s Day breakfast, then enjoying it together while lounging in bed. Don’t forget the champagne!
2Go on a Hike
Looking to venture into the outdoors this year? Take a scenic hike together and enjoy all the beautiful sights and the fresh air — it’s a great way to bond while getting some much-needed time to unplug, too.
3Exchange Love Letters
Is there anything more romantic than writing a love letter to your sweetheart? Make Valentine’s Day even more special by putting in writing why your partner means so much to you.
4Have a Game Night
For those with a competitive streak (or those who just like some good, old-fashioned fun), an exciting night of board games is the perfect way to make Valentine’s Day memorable — especially when there’s wine involved!
5Make Some Crafts
Get creative and enjoy a special Valentine’s Day craft night complete with wine, snacks and plenty of fun. You can make each other a DIY Valentine’s Day gift, or even compete to see who can make the better (or more creative) craft!
6Plan a Movie Marathon
For some quality relaxation time with your S.O., get cozy on the couch and binge-watch all your favorite rom-coms. It’s the perfect way to get in the mood for some Valentine’s romance!
They say that food is the way to heart, so why not spend quality time preparing a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner together? You can even try out a virtual cooking class — it’s a great way to ditch the traditional dinner date for something more hands-on.
8Have a Valentine’s Bake-off
In true Great British Baking Show fashion, have a friendly competition in the kitchen to see who can make the best (and most festive) Valentine’s Day desserts — extra points for anything heart-shaped, of course.
9Take a Relaxing Bath
Turn on the warm water, add in your favorite essential oil or bath bomb and forget about your troubles. Oh, and don’t skip the candles and music.
10Rent a Cozy Cabin in the Woods
Who doesn’t love a weekend getaway in the woods? Take advantage of sweater weather and escape into the wilderness, where you can relax by the fire and enjoy some hot chocolate.
