Now is the time to have a little fun with your food! You can set up a fun (and delicious!) food experience by gathering an assortment of different types of food, blindfolding your partner, and having them taste and guess what they’re eating. You can always start with a selection of cheeses and finish with something sweet like chocolate or fruit.

Travel-Themed Dinner

Just because you’re inside your home doesn’t mean that you can’t travel the world (with a little creativity and imagination!). By taking inspiration from your favorite place or vacation, you can recreate that magic with a themed dinner. For example, for an Italian-themed dinner, you could enjoy some Negronis and make homemade pasta or pizza! Set the mood with a playlist from your country/region of your choice and you’ve got a great date night for Valentine’s Day.
