With the world still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, some might be hesitant to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a public date. Nevertheless, love must go on, and there are plenty of fun dates to have from the safety and comfort of one’s home.
With that being said, here are 10 Moonstruck-recommended home dates you can have to ensure your 2021 Valentine’s Day is romantic, exciting, and safe!
Themed Date Night!
One of the best ways to keep you and your partner engaged on date night is to have a date based around a theme for the night. And we do not just mean a Valentine’s Day-themed date. Whether the theme is pop culture based, or an original idea you and your partner have, a theme being the basis for your date is guaranteed to make your home date more interesting and fun!
Who doesn’t love fondue? As many have noted, fondue has seen a resurgence in the past decade, with many making the fondue experience be their way towards a memorable date both in and out of home. There are a variety of ways to go about having a fondue date, with all guaranteed to be both fun and delicious!
Homemade Pizza Night!
Pizza never gets old, and like fondue, what better way to bond with your partner than through food? And better yet, one of the best foods around: pizza! With there being a variety of different ways to make this classic food, you and your partner can spend your Valentine’s Day safely enjoying a fresh slice of your own homemade pizza.
Recreate your first date at home!
Recreating your first date at home is a sure way to bring both romance and nostalgia to your Valentine’s Day date, allowing you to really reflect on how far you and your partner have come. Whether it was a date at the movies, at a fancy restaurant, or even at each other’s house, it will be an absolute joy to recreate where it all started at your house!
Living room camp out!
Not too sure about going into the woods to camp? No worries! Who says s’mores can’t be enjoyed within the safety of your house? As said earlier, having a theme for your at home date night is a perfect way to keep your at-home date interesting and engaging! Turning your living room into a blanket fort and date night into the camping trip of your dreams will make for a memorable Valentine’s Day, all while saving you from the pesky mosquitoes you might deal with on an actual camping trip!
There’s a reason Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and so many other streaming services continue to boom! A movie marathon is one of the best ways to spend quality time with your partner, all while getting plenty of entertainment as well! What you binge can be based around a theme for the night as well! Have a favorite actor? Or genre and/or series? Make your date night based around one of these and spend time escaping with your partner into one of your favorite movie franchises! A Marvel movie marathon is one of my personal favorites!
Board Game night!
When was the last time you played a board game? Or had some friendly competition with your partner? Sometimes a little competition is needed and getting in the competitive spirit on Valentine’s Day can be a sure way to make your night a memorable one! Whether it is good ol’ Monopoly, the underrated Scattergories, or the booming Cards Against Humanity, a board game night will turn up both you and your partner’s romantic and competitive spirits!
Self care day is something every couple should make a priority, so why not do so on Valentine’s Day with an at home spa date? An at home spa date with your partner is the perfect way to both decompress and spend quality time with your partner. At home spa days have certainly grown in popularity so the options of how to have a spa date are endless!
Learn something new like sushi making or partner yoga
Learning something new with your partner will give you the chance to not only bond over a new activity but make for a memorable Valentine’s date! Whether it’s learning how to make sushi, learning yoga with the love of your life, trying something new for Valentine’s Day will give you and your partner a night to remember as you bond over a new skill or hobby to learn.
Ready for your 2021 Valentine’s Day to be both an exciting and safe one? Make the day of love yours while protecting you and your partner’s safety this year!
