Make dinner together.
Cook your favourite meal together. There’s plenty of options for two to choose from, like this heart-shaped pizza or this hearty shrimp and gnocchi dish.

Have a fondue night.
Fondue night is super easy and romantic. Do chocolate fondue with fruits and dessert or make it a whole meal and have cheese fondue with fresh produce and bread.

Have a spa date.
Try a DIY at-home spa date for two. Pamper each other and leave the date completely relaxed and in a peaceful state of mind.

Send virtual valentines.
What better way to profess love other than the (virtual) written word. Design your own card to send to a partner. A perfect gift for couples who are old souls.

Learn a dance.
This Valentine’s Day, grab some dancing shoes and have a dance class in your own home. There are free videos on YouTube or live virtual classes.
