1. Get dressed up
For many people, Valentine's Day is a great excuse to get all dressed up in your best outfit for a romantic meal in your fave restaurant. Now that sadly isn't possible this year, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out on a special dining experience. Whether you're surprising your partner with your own 5 course meal, or you decide to create a special date night menu together, why not get all dressed up in your fanciest outfit and best clothes so you feel as though you're stepping into a super posh restaurant. You can even decorate your kitchen/dining room so it feels like a restaurant. Light a candle, pop a chilled out playlist on in the background, crack open your fizz of choice, put your phone away and just enjoy some quality time together.
2. Gift each other something personal
3. Romantic movie marathon
Valentine's Day at home doesn't have to mean crazy plans and lavish gifts, sometimes all you want to do is enjoy quality time together on your sofa watching your favourite films or series. Harry Potter is always a classic movie marathon pick. Make your living room all cosy, grab your favourite snacks and a bottle of wine, or if you're feeling something non alcoholic why not treat yourselves to a full works hot chocolate filled with whipped cream and marshmallows (yum) in our Valentine's inspired mug - exclusively available at John Lewis.
4. Bar crawl at home
If you love a good Bar Crawl (I mean who doesn't?) then why not create your own by transforming each room in your home to it's own bar. So different theme, music and of course cocktails! Be as creative as possible and just have some fun with it. Being stuck at home doesn't mean you have to be bored on the sofa with nothing to do. If you're feeling extra dedicated to the idea, why not order some cheap disco lights or some mini umbrellas to pop into your Long island Ice tea's. Please tag me in your pics if you do this and who knows, maybe you'll love it so much you'll only ever want to do your own at home bar crawl.
