For a lot of us out there, Valentine’s Day can fall on a hectic week, especially if it happens to be a weekday. With our busy schedules, it can be difficult to plan a big night out with your special someone. Maybe it completely slipped both of your minds to make a reservation to a fancy restaurant. Or maybe you and your significant other don’t feel like dressing up after a long day at work. We all have our reasons.
But of course, that doesn’t mean that you and your partner can’t enjoy yourselves in the comfort of your own home! Plus, you know how the saying goes: home is where the heart is. If you and your dearest are down for a date night “in,” then we’ve got some stay-at-home Valentine’s ideas for all the homebodies out there!
Romantic candlelit dinners are a Valentine’s Day staple, but you don’t need to get out of the house to have the same experience. If you and your partner want to add a fun twist to a typical night out by staying in and cooking the meal together! Not only are the results delicious, they will definitely be a lot more rewarding since it was all a collaborative effort.
Cooking a gourmet meal can seem a little intimidating for all the beginners out there, but there are some simple recipes that shouldn’t be too difficult to craft at home. Recreating your favorite romantic dinner meal can be a lot more fun than you’d think!
Love Is in the Air
…Or on your walls, or hanging from the ceiling! The best way to celebrate any holiday is making sure your home looks the part with the right decorations for the occasion. You can either surprise your partner by having them come home to scattered rose petals on the floor, bouquets and candles on every surface of the house, or little handwritten messages professing your love.
If you’re feeling crafty, you can make your own DIY heart chandeliers, garlands, streamers, plant ornaments – the possibilities are endless! After all, the best way to get into the spirit of this love-filled holiday is going all out on dressing up your home once a year. If your partner isn’t the biggest fan of all the mushy-gushy symbols of Valentine’s Day, you can always opt for minimal decorations, like beautiful floral centerpieces. There’s always options!
Trip Down Memory Lane
Sometimes love gives an opportunity to look back on what shaped us into the people we are today. This can mean that we revisit the simpler times of our lives – like biking around the cul-de-sac or going to parks. There’s nothing wrong with being nostalgic, and it might be nice to jazz up a stay-at-home date night with some playful antics you and your partner used to do while you were kids.
Relive those innocent times with your partner by building a blanket and pillow fort! The two of you can cuddle up in a makeshift bed on the floor and watch some your favorite movies from both of your childhoods. Decorate the fort with some string lights for even more of a magical time!
Casual nights in usually call for some friendly competition with none other than video games, board games, you name it! It’s one thing to play these on your own, but we can all agree that it’s a lot more fun to challenge your romantic partner to a few rounds of your favorite racing game. Plus, you can spice things up by adding some beneficial penalties. Maybe the loser can do dishes for a week or treat the winner out to dinner.
There’s just so many ways to make game night a lot more entertaining than it sounds!
For Valentine’s Day, a lot of couples like to venture out into their neighborhood and take classes on baking, latte art, painting, and more. But that doesn’t mean you can’t learn some skills in the comfort of your very own home!

Search for some videos online to get crafting, baking, or mixing away! Having a special someone to learn a new skill with you makes this experience even more rewarding.
