Celebrate Valentine’s Day at Home: Last-Minute Date Ideas

For all the procrastinators out there, this is your friendly reminder that Valentine’s Day is this Friday. It’s likely that restaurants are already booked to capacity, but that doesn’t mean you have to abandon your date night plans. Skip the grocery store chocolate, and try one of these romantic stay-at-home ideas instead.

Cooking at Home: Date Night
A Romantic Dinner for Two
Nothing says ‘I Love You’ quite like a home-cooked meal. Head over to your Neighborhood Clubhouse and put that show kitchen to good use. Pick up some fresh ingredients at the market, pick out a recipe together, and try something new. Get out of your comfort zone with a complex recipe like homemade ravioli, or keep it simple with grilled cheese. Whatever you choose, pair it with a nice bottle of wine and some favorite tunes.

An Evening by the Fire
Not much on cooking? No worries. Keep it casual and order in a pizza before kicking back in front of the fire pit. Have an afternoon lunch while warming your toes or settle in as the sun sets and watch the flames dance in the night sky. Simple and cozy, this is a date night to remember.

Bubbly with your Bubbles
Have a spa night without the heavy price tag. Bring your own bubbly down to the spa with plastic, reusable glasses and a bowl of strawberries for a snack. Soak and catch up on your day and enjoy time spent together. As the sun slowly fades and the moon begins to rise, look for constellations in the night sky.
