What does the perfect Valentine’s Day look like to you? If it’s full of sweet moments, remember that they can be made just about anywhere, even your own home. Your friends at Griffin’s Floral Designs in Columbus, put together the ultimate guide for a charming Valentine’s Day. Spread kindness, enjoy time with your sweetheart, or practice self-care right from the comfort of your living room this year.
Seven Ultimate At-Home Date Ideas
Plan an Indoor Picnic
Set the perfect romantic ambiance for an indoor picnic in your living room with candles, dim lights, fresh flowers, and a favorite entree and wine. Have a cozy night-in as you dismiss the idea of making a reservation at a crowded restaurant. Enjoy a decadent dessert, like classic assorted chocolates or homemade sweets.
Play Nostalgic Board Games
Take advantage of the sweet ambiance you’ve set for your indoor picnic, and enjoy it for a while longer as you play good old-fashioned board games. Break out the “Guess Who,” “Battleship,” and “Checkers” and get a little competitive, laugh, and act like kids together. It’s sure to be a memorable Valentine’s Day.
Learn a New Dance
Try something new, fun, and a little flirty, like a ballroom dance class. Find a virtual tutorial online, lead your Valentine to the dance floor, and sweep your love off their feet with some new moves. Enjoy the romantic language of dance while you listen to your favorite tunes and fall in love again.
Send Beautiful Blooms
A fresh arrangement of flowers is the perfect thing to make someone’s day extra sweet. Send your favorite flora to your best friends, family members, neighbors, or even yourself. May we suggest our “Love Is In The Air” bouquet? Anyone who receives this beautiful surprise will be grateful to know they’re in your heart this Valentine’s Day.
Have a Romantic Movie Marathon
The best thing about enjoying Valentine’s Day solo is being able to watch anything you want without compromise. This year, indulge in the best romantic movie marathon with all your favorite mushy films. Show yourself some love with a box of assorted chocolates and a fine bottle of wine.
Deliver Handcrafted Gifts
Enjoy a creative afternoon with your sweetheart making handmade gifts. From Valentine cards to homemade candles, or other creative handcrafted items, let your imagination run wild together. End the day delivering your one-of-a-kind presents to your local nursing homes, hospitals, or a community organization close to your heart, and spread some love this year.
Go For a Walk Together
It’s time to exchange your slippers for walking shoes so you can get some much-needed fresh air. Take a romantic walk with your sweetheart right before sunset, and maybe you can catch a glimpse of the marvelous colors in the sky. Stay close to your Valentine to keep warm, or bring along your favorite hot beverages.
Escape your reality today and unplug. Enjoy the little moments your day may bring as you enjoy time with your Valentine. In other words, “stop and smell the flowers.” Especially if they’re from Griffin’s Floral Designs, you’ll be so glad you did.
