Best Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Ideas

If you’ve been extra busy at work lately and haven’t had time to make Valentine’s Day plans or if you just can’t decide what to do with your significant other, we’ve made your life simple and gathered a few ideas that you can enjoy with your partner or a group of friends.  Either way, it’ll work for both!


1. Stay in!

As simple as that. Odds are the restaurant you’d like to go to is booked, but your living room won’t be. Prepare dinner, order in, watch Netflix. It’s your night off and you deserve some relaxing time, be it with your significant other, alone, or with friends.


2. Prepare a simple meal together.

Cooking can be fun! Be creative and look up some simple recipes you both will enjoy making and eating. There are several out there. Here are some you we’ve gathered for you: Chicken Parmesan,  Mushroom Steak, Pasta with Mushrooms, Spinach Fettuccine Primavera, or Porterhouse for two. Let us know if you liked any of these!


3. Play a board game.

For some, this might seem like a terrible idea. But many people enjoy game nights. If you think your friends or other partners might like to join you, invite them over! Have a party, celebrate the holiday that’s dedicated to friendship and love!

4. Watch scary movies.

Yep, we said it. Go the other way and think outside the box. Watching scary movies can be a lot of fun and you’ll be closer than ever, especially hanging on to each other’s clothes in sheer panic waiting for the murderer in the movie to come through the door. We recommend Insidious, but there are many more out there!


5. Escape to a B&B.

If saving money is what you want, then this idea might not be for you. But some couples love to spontaneously take a trip somewhere and going to a B&B seems about right. Hopefully, the one you have your eyes on won’t be packed. If this idea seems too extreme, then just driving somewhere nearby should be just as fun! Go on a hike, walk around your favorite hiking places, and enjoy spending time with the one you love!
