How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day at Home



VALENTINE’S Day is just around the corner, and if you’re struggling to come up with a romantic date night idea we’ve got your back. Here are some home date night ideas that may help you to create a cozy and amorous evening, without breaking the bank.

TIP1 :TABLE FOR TWO, PLEASE

You will, of course, be spending Valentine’s Day cooking at home instead of heading out to a restaurant – let’s look on the bright side as it’s a great excuse to buy new cookware. Try out one of our recipes – from fish pie to chicken casserole and beef bourguinon.

TIP2 :WHAT CAN I GET YOU TO DRINK?

GREY GOOSE ESPRESSO MARTINI COCKTAIL KIT | £39.99 AT AMAZON

This Espresso Martini kit comes complete with Grey Goose vodka, Patron XO Café and cold brew coffee. Oh, and a Grey Goose Martini glass! Not only does it make this caffeine-fueled cocktail easy to make, but it’s also a great at-home date night idea. Especially if you used to spend date night at your favorite local bar. All you need is some coffee beans and a pinch of salt for garnish. We’ve tried it ourselves and we obviously loved it.

TIP3 : CREATE A CINEMA NIGHT AT HOME

A movie night can be very romantic, and you can create one in the comfort of your own home without splashing out on tickets. If you want to make it extra special, get a cheap but reliable mini projector and some cinema-like popcorns; get ready to be carried away to the magical world of pictures. Here are the top 50 Romance Movies, according to IMDB, for some inspiration.

TIP4 :BAKE A SCRUMPTIOUS DESSERT FOR AFTER DINNER 

Try your hand at baking together this Valentine’s Day with the help of a baking kit curated by Britain Loves Baking’s award-winning Michelin Star chef. They have a luxurious selection of baking kits available to help you make some magic together this February. Each limited edition box is packed with everything you need — from rich ingredients and easy to follow instructions — to make a delectable array of desserts. Choose from my hubby’s homemade Blueberry Homemade Southern Pecan Pie

TIP5 :MAKE A FLOWER ARRANGEMENT 

Don’t forget the basics — flowers are a must! Instead of dishing out serious cash for a professional arrangement, make your own with grocery store flowers

TIP6 :PAMPER EACH OTHER 

Nothing can beat an old-fashion massage when it comes to showing affection. Order an aromatic massage oil, watch some YouTube tutorials in advance and voila! You can enjoy a sensual and romantic evening by pampering (and getting pampered by) your loved one. We also recommend getting some candles – Neom is a great brand to go for – and curating a playlist in advance to surprise your partner by creating an extra special evening.

TIP7 : OR MAKE IT A SPA NIGHT

Grab the cocktails you made earlier and get ready to have a spa break in your flat. Relaxing and refreshing your mind, body and soul together is an excellent way to stay sane during the lockdown and – for the most part – a simple night activity to partake in.

Make your home as relaxing as possible with dimmed lights, soft music, and these simple yet calming experiences:

*Draw a hot bath filled with stress-reducing items, such as a few drops of lavender essential oil, and drop in a few rose petals for an extra Valentine’s Day touch.
*Give your bathroom a romantic spa vibe with flickering candles, glasses of wine, and heart-shaped chocolates by the side of the tub.
*Offer a massage or foot rub including a scented exfoliating rub, a body oil, and a moisturizer.
*Warm a set of plush and luxurious towels in the dryer and have them waiting nearby.
