From dodging crowded restaurants to making sure you’re staying healthy and safe, there are many reasons why people are opting to celebrate Valentine’s Day at home this year. If you’re one of them, but not sure how to make the day special, your friends at Al’s Florist & Gifts, Hollywood’s top flower shop, have your back. We’ve created the ultimate guide for your romantic date-night-in or a relaxing at-home afternoon.
Seven Fun Valentine’s Day Activities
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a bouquet of beautiful blooms. Spend some time picking out the most cheerful arrangement to send to your loved ones, like our “Vero Amore” arrangement. Remember, flowers are not just for your Valentine! Coordinate a few special deliveries to your best friend, family members, or even your next-door neighbor.
Host Your Favorite Movie Marathon
The best thing about movie night is making it romantic with wine for two and cuddles on the couch. You can even make it unique by setting up a blanket in front of the fireplace, complete with pillows, so you can be more comfortable while you watch hours of your most favorite movies.
Cook a Special Dinner for Yourself
If cooking for a significant other is a romantic way of showing love, then cooking a favorite meal for yourself is an incredible form of self-love. Choose your favorite entree or something you rarely cook on any ordinary day. Carve out a few hours to enjoy spending time in the kitchen to spoil your taste buds. Don’t forget about your sweet tooth, and bake a favorite dessert while you’re at it.
Learn a New Dance
From a steamy tango to a dreamy waltz, ballroom dancing is a language of the soul. Treat your sweetheart to an exciting and unique at-home date with virtual dance lessons. Find a tutorial online or create your own sequence of moves to your favorite songs. You might just find a hidden talent or fall in love again.
Build a Jigsaw Together
How is building a jigsaw puzzle romantic? Since there isn’t anywhere to go except your living room, you have to make the most of it. Find a cute picture of a great adventure or one that simply speaks to you, and work together with your sweetheart to make it come to life. Test your patience and ability to work side-by-side near the fireplace while you stay warm and cozy.
Make a Loving Donation
Fall in love with generosity this year, and share a new kind of Valentine’s Day love with your community. Take a few moments out of your day to make a loving donation. What better time to show your appreciation and support to an organization that fills your heart?
Spend Time Under the Stars
If you’ve been cooped up in the house all day, enjoy the great outdoors with your honey this evening. Bask in a romantic sunset or acknowledge and appreciate the dreamy night sky above you while you stargaze together. Keep each other warm under a big blanket, and don’t forget your hot after-dinner drinks.
When in doubt, unplug and just be. Enjoy the little moments today, whether you’re spending it with your love or hanging out solo. As some would say, “stop and smell the roses.” We have plenty at Al’s Florist & Gifts.
