Top At-Home Valentine's Day Date Ideas
Plan the Perfect Valentine's Menu
Is the way to a man's heart through his stomach? Cook up the ultimate Valentine's Day feast in the comfort of your own kitchen. Choose your beau's favorite foods or create a themed menu like everything heart-shaped or red-colored. Do you need a little extra kitchen space while cooking up your culinary masterpiece? Use the Table-Mate like a personal sous chef. Create a cutting station, plating area, or holding spot anywhere in your kitchen.
Host a Game Night
If you and your babe have a knack for games and enjoy all things competitive, invite a few other couples over for some Valentine's Day games. From board games, card games, to video games partner up with your sweetie to beat the other pairs. Do you and your other half have what it takes to win the title of the top couple?
Have a Romantic Movie Marathon
A Netflix binge is calling your name! Turn on your favorite rom-coms and cuddle up under a blanket for the perfect cozy date night in. Pop some popcorn, open up a box of candy, whip up a batch of hot chocolate, and let the movie marathon begin. If you need extra room for your movie-watching snacks, pull out the Table-Mate for additional space. The Table-Mate can be quickly propped up to create the ultimate junk food smorgasbord for you and your loved one.
Make Breakfast in Bed
Who wouldn't want to be woken up with a delicious homemade breakfast? Whip up a tasty breakfast spread on Valentine's Day and enjoy it from bed with your sweetheart. It will be a nice change of pace from the usual coffee to go and a bagel on the commute to work.
Bake Dessert Together
Have you always wanted to try your hand at making homemade macaroons? How about a delectable German chocolate cake? Plan a Valentine's Day date around baking a dessert you and your mate have always wanted to try but never had the time. While you're working hard, creating a sweet treat, order dinner in so you can keep your focus on the most important part of the meal, the dessert. Spend time in the kitchen with your significant other, and have a blast baking and tasting together.
Create an At-Home Spa Experience
What's more romantic than candles, soft music, and a massage from your sweetie? If gift-giving isn't your love language, treat your partner to an hour of massage therapy with luxurious body oils. What's the best part? They can thank you by returning the favor.
