Stay at home date for Valentine’s

Valentine’s Day is coming, and yet we all get to stay at home. My husband and I have been trying harder to leave time for ourselves. Parenthood can sometimes be tiring, right? However, I think parents have to spend time alone together, too. The pandemic doesn’t make it any easier, so here’s an idea for a safe stay at home Valentine’s date!

Our baby is staying in our room, so it’s hard to watch something when he’s asleep without bothering him. We’ve been using the laptop to watch something at night. Rather than just sitting on the couch with the laptop on a stool, I thought it’d be a good idea to do a little romantic set up for my husband and I. If your special someone gets to leave the house, you can surprise them. Maybe ask them to take a shower while you put everything together.

Find a spot and make it look cute! I added all the cushions I found, a cute blanket, and a chalkboard sign. I also handmade those pom-poms. My husband loves sweet and salty snacks, so I made Valentine’s popcorn, dark chocolate covered pretzels, and I also added a bowl with Doritos with hot sauce and lime. There was some plain popcorn, too, but we ate it before we took the pictures. Get a bottle of wine, or maybe some hot tea or chocolate.

It was my first time making St. Valentine’s popcorn, and I loved it. It was more than perfect. The right amount of salty and sweet.

We usually like to go out to eat some South Indian food to our favorite restaurant for Valentine’s day. Maybe this year we will order takeaway, but for sure we will enjoy a movie night on our living room floor, safe at home.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

  1. Love the idea and we’ve been doing a ton of these but I think I’m looking forward to going out finally since more places are opening up. This is still a great way to celebrate and stay safe.
