1. Spend The Night Under the Stars
Oh yeah! Ditch the comfort of your home and go camping- in your backyard! Get out those sleeping bags, marshmallows and Ramen noodles and cook over the campfire! Spend the night under the stars, gazing, talking and just relishing the solitude!
2. Have A Cook-Off
Having a cook-off at home with your partner can be a really fun and entertaining way to spend the day! You both can look up some cool recipes and get dirty in the kitchen- competing against each other or another couple (making it a double date with double the fun!). If you’re lucky, this can help inspire you both to cook more often and eat more home cooked meals…save money and have fun!
3. Enjoy A Movie Marathon Night
This one’s a no-brainer, and while it may not seem like a lot, it can be the perfect way to spend the romantic day in the most comfortable way…just enjoying each other’s company. Shortlist some good movies you can watch together, (they don’t even have to be romantic), order lots of pizza and just relax on the couch, spending some quality time together.

4. Have A Picnic in the Park
Pinching pennies but still want to make your Valentine’s day memorable? Picnicing at a nice cozy spot in a nearby park is a great idea. Whip up some quick sandwiches and your favorite soft drinks and snacks and hit your local park. Bonus points if you find a lake, pond, or ocean to enjoy.
5. Get Goofy with At-Home Karaoke
Got a stereo system at home? That’s actually almost all you need to host karaoke at home! All you need is to look up some good karaoke apps or websites, pick one that works best for you, and have some fun without having to step out and go to that fancy bar. This can also be even more fun when you invite other couples!
6. Go Hiking
Hiking is a great way to boost your happiness levels, and doing it with your partner can really take it up a notch. Pick a hiking trail that’s close to you and somewhere you can come back home the same day. Make sure you choose somewhere you can watch the sunrise or sunset for the most romantic views!
7. Enjoy a Long Drive & Music
There’s nothing that beats a long drive, some good music, and the wind in your hair to make you feel free and happy to be alive. Why not use Valentine’s day as the chance to do just that and get out with your partner? Keep yourself sober and you should be able to have a great time and come back with a smile on your face!
