5 fun things to do at home for St. Valentine's Day.
We are just a few weeks away from the most romantic day in the year, St. Valentine’s day. While still under quarantine, there is a great chance that you won’t be able to have a romantic dinner at a restaurant, travel somewhere or do something outside.
Why not explore some home-based options and set up some fun activities at home?
Believe it or not, there are so many romantic, exciting things you can do.
Here there is a selection of our five top favourite activities for home entertainment for couples.
Picnic in the living room
Set up everything for a real picnic! Having it in your living room actually feels almost the same as in a park.
Get your picnic basket, make some yummy sandwiches and other nibbles, and include a bottle of your favorite wine.
Arrange everything in a beautiful picnic basket. In the basket, you should have everything you need such as wine glasses, cutlery, napkins and so on (something like this >>> here<<<).
To add an extra touch and create an even more realistic experience, arrange some pillows, spray the room with a flowery scent and play some soft music in the background, something with sounds from nature like birds songs, the murmur of a river or ocean waves.
Have a home movie night
If you love going to the cinema you must be devastated as all cinemas have been closed for awhile. However, we have a fabulous solution for you. Have a real movie night at home. How? Very easily. You will need a bit of equipment but, believe me, it’s worth it.
First, get a mini projector (something like this >>>here<<<). One for children is a perfect option (and cheaper), connect it to your phone or computer, choose a big clean wall at home and, voila, you have a home cinema. Select a movie of your choice.
Next, pop some popcorn, grab a drink and set a couple of comfy armchairs or big pillows on the floor.
Romantic paint & sip party for two
You’ve probably heard that people get to know each other better by doing something together. Getting creative and having fun painting is a fantastic home experience for St. Valentine. Because this is our specialty, we made some lovely painting kits for romantic paint & sip experience at home. Check them out on our art kits page ~ here~.
Painting together will take approximately 1 hour and a half and can be beautifully combined with a nice bottle of wine, some gourmet snacks or even dinner after the painting party.
You will need 2 canvases, paints & brushes, a palette, a jar or cup with water and a laptop or computer. You can buy all materials from our amazon shop >>>here<<<.
Create a happy memories board
A wonderful way to celebrate St. Valentine at home is to express your happiness together with arranging your pictures on a romantic board. You will need a small phone printer (something like this >>>here<<<), A3 cardboard in any colour you’d like, some glue or double sticker and colourful markers. If you like stickers, you may have some St. Valentines stickers as well.
Start the evening by going through all the pictures you both have on your mobile phones. Choose those you like the most, connect the mini printer and print them all. Then comes the fun part. Start arranging all of the pictures on the board. You can arrange them by year, topic or destinations. Add some notes with the colourful markers and stick St. Valentines stickers around them.
This is a super fun and enjoyable activity, and it will evoke many lovely memories.
Take a virtual trip to Paris
This is such a cool idea. If you love Paris and you miss travelling, this is for you. Take a virtual tour and walk around the Palais Garnier – Opéra de Paris or Musée du Louvre. You can even look at Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower or explore in detail the magnificent Sainte-Chapelle.
Of course, matching the experience with menus and drinks is required. Paris is about champagne and other good French wine, delicious French cuisine, desserts and cheeses, and of course, romantic French music.
St. Valentine’s Day is certainly one of the most romantic days of the year. It’s all about having a wonderful time with someone you love. The classic romantic dinner always works well, but if you plan something more exciting, this can make the day super special and unforgettable.
Don’t forget that St. Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days for proposals as well. How wonderful it would be to get your diamond ring on that special day!

Lots of love,
