Couples often feel pressure to make Valentine’s Day a big event. However, all this stress and cost can ruin what’s supposed to be the most romantic day of the year. If you want to ensure this V Day is one both you and your sweetie can truly enjoy, consider spending the holiday at home. With a few simple steps, and a little advanced planning, you can save a bundle without sacrificing any of the joy of this special day. Read on for details on setting the mood for a romantic Valentine’s Day at home.
Why Spend Valentine's Day at Home
Spending Valentine’s Day at home comes with numerous advantages. For one thing, you don’t have to spend a fortune celebrating your love. After all, going out for V Day means racking up bills for dinner, movies, snacks, and gas, not to mention paying the babysitter to stay with the kids. On top of that, you have to dress up in uncomfortable clothes and fight the crowds at your favorite restaurant or bar. By spending V Day in the comfort of your own home, you can ensure that the holiday is what you want it to be while celebrating what really matters: the love you share with that special someone. Below are some of our favorite ideas for an intimate home Valentine’s Day.
Have a Movie Marathon in Bed
Who says you have to hit the cineplex to watch a movie this V Day? With so many movies going straight to VOD (video on demand), you don’t have to settle for a film that’s been out for years. Snuggle up with your sweetheart while you enjoy a recent flick in the comfort of your own bedroom. While there’s nothing wrong with a sofa movie session, we think Valentine’s Day is better spent in bed. Don’t forget to order plenty of snacks for movie night, from popcorn to ice cream to chocolate cake from your favorite bakery. Or you can opt to cook something together as a fun bonding activity.
Of course, you want to ensure you’re comfortable during your movie marathon. While warm, fluffy blankets are a must at this time of year, we also recommend picking up something for back support. Our Hira Decorative Lumbar Pillow is designed to cradle your lower back while blending seamlessly with your existing decor. Made from shiny sateen fabric, this luxurious piece features contemporary accent diamond embroidery and comes in an array of trendy hues, including White, Ivory, Grey, Soft Peach, and Midnight.
Create a Romantic Bedroom
Speaking of bedroom decor, there are steps you can take to turn the room where you spend seven to nine hours a night into a romantic haven that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day. If you can’t afford to splurge on an upscale hotel room, aim to create five-star luxury at home by clearing the room of clutter and removing distracting items like laptops and phones. Once you’ve freed up some space, dim the lights and set out your favorite scented candles to create the right mood. You can also up the romance vibe by playing love songs and putting chocolates on the pillows. The goal is to treat yourself and your sweetie to something special you don’t normally get to experience.
Massage Your Partner on the Comfiest Sheets
When was the last time you felt truly at peace? For many of us, a massage is one of the most calming experiences, so why not give your partner the gift of relaxation this year? You don’t have to be a professional massage therapist to help your honey feel like the center of attention.
When it comes to the ultimate massage, comfort is key, so start by setting up a cozy spot for them to take a load off. Made from 400 thread count Egyptian cotton, our Ariane Collection is a natural choice for massage bedding. Boasting all the softness of fine silk, this Egyptian cotton sheet set has a sateen weave that’s at once warm and breathable. That means you don’t have to worry about your partner overheating. Plus, the tone-on-tone scroll embroidery design has a beauty and elegance that’s sure to put you in the mood for romance. We recommend soft colors to evoke a sense of calm. While White and Linen are classic options, our cool Spa set feels just right for a home massage day.
Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday this year, making it the perfect opportunity to enjoy a long weekend with the one you love. If you want a little extra time to relax and reconnect this February 14th, think about playing hooky and staying home from work to celebrate. Don’t worry about planning anything extravagant. It’s totally fine to sleep late, eat breakfast in bed, or spend the day watching your favorite show on Netflix. As long as you’re with your sweetie, it’s bound to be a perfect experience.
