We see you, couch potato couples. Loafing lovers. Sleepy sweethearts. Homebody honeys – we could go on. Valentine’s Day is around the corner and you’re not about to change your Netflix-marathon-in-sweatpants habits. That’s totally fine. In fact, it’s almost better because at-home dates mean everything is about you and your loved one; there are no other distractions.
Here is a list of some totally awesome ways you can spend Valentine’s Day without interacting with the outside world:
Wine and Canvas Night
It doesn’t matter if you’re wholly incompetent at anything artistic, you will still have a blast! Even if the all of the fun is in laughing at how bad you both are at painting.
A Spa Night
Pamper each other with rest, relaxation, and a fresh mud mask. We wrote a blog on how to pull this one off.
Melt down old crayons into a candle. Make mason jar pencil holders. Tie dye your pillow cases. You could make even more interesting crafts if you only use items that you already have on hand (which means you really don’t have to leave the house) but if you need to make a trip to JoAnn’s, do it!
Learn how to make tasty or unusual drinks from the comfort of your own kitchen. Search ‘mixology’ on Youtube, you’d be amazed at what you can concoct from liquor and mixers that you already have in your pantry.
Plan a trip together
This totally counts as a date, for the record. Chat about where you’d like to visit, research and make a list of attractions to see, figure out what you both are willing to spend, look up the plane ticket/gas prices, and if you think you’re ready, book the trip! You can write out your itinerary, too.
