A Valentine’s Night-In
This Valentine’s Day, stay where the heart is – at home! You won’t have to jockey for reservations or fret about traffic. Gather up some special treats (anything chocolate and a giant teddy bear, perhaps) and plan a night in!
Whether your agenda includes romance or fun, we’ve got great ideas for spending Valentine’s Day at home with your loved one(s):
Make a heart-shaped pizza.
This is an easy and fun dinner that you can make together. Go gourmet with frozen artisan dough, homemade sauce and wholesome ingredients. Or pick up kid-friendly poppin’ dough and pepperoni.
Write a love letter.
Surprise your soulmate with a heartfelt sentiment. Or, each of you write a sweet letter and then exchange them. A great place to start is to list three things you love about the other and why.
Make homemade valentines.
Feb. 14 is the perfect day to pull out the construction paper, craft glitter and glue gun. Get creative with lace doilies, ribbon and stickers. Have everyone in your family make personal Valentines for each other and then exchange and read them.
Have a picnic.
What’s more romantic than dinner under the stars? Weather permitting, put together a sweet spread in your backyard. If the weather is uncooperative, move inside to the living room. You’re bound to earn bonus points if you have a flickering fire, real or virtual. This can certainly be adapted to be a family-friendly occasion, too.
Watch a romantic movie.
Peruse your Netflix account for a flick that will please everyone, or go old school and pop in a favorite DVD. We bet you can find a Valentine’s Day favorite that even the most rugged man might enjoy.
Create something delectable.
Sweet is the theme today, so top off your evening with something delicious and decadent.
