Admire Some Flowers

A candlelight dinner for two isn’t complete without a gorgeous floral arrangement.

Select classic roses for a traditional date at home, or a unique bouquet like “Lovingly Yours” to make it extra special.

Cook Your Favorite Dinner

Since cooking for your partner is a common way of showing love, then preparing a favorite meal for yourself must also be a great way to practice self-love. Choose your favorite dish or something you don’t often cook for yourself. Block out a few hours of your day to enjoy time in the kitchen spoiling your taste buds. Don’t neglect your sweet tooth! Bake a wonderful dessert, too. 

Movie screen and wooden bowl of popcorn

Host a Great Movie Marathon

Movie lovers will have the best day ever with this at-home, cozy date idea. A great movie marathon, with films selected by you and your Valentine, will be held right in your living room. Light a few candles, roll out warm blankets, and grab lots of pillows to create a comfy and intimate atmosphere. Pour some wine and share a bowl of popcorn to make it special. 

Coin donation jar with red hearts

Make a Loving Donation

A loving donation is simply one that comes from the heart to benefit your community. Complete this meaningful project with your honey or make your thoughtful donation on your own. Spreading love to those in need can come in all forms, such as monetary, food-based, clothing, your own time, and more. Once you choose an organization that tugs on your heart, the rest will fall into place.
