Tips for Creating a Warm & Romantic Valentine's Day at Home

It’s Valentine’s Day, and if you want to avoid going out into the freezing cold, here are a few ideas for a warm, romantic night at home.

Stay-At-Home Valentine's Day Ideas

1. Cook a warm meal.

A hot meal is sure to warm the heart and the home. Besides the romantic aroma of a fresh-cooked meal, the added heat will allow you to turn the thermostat down, saving you some money on energy. Here are 25 Romantic Valentine's Day Recipes. After you turn off the oven, prop the door open a little to help heat your home, but remember that you should never use your oven to heat the home.

2. Dance your heart out.

If you and your partner have taken any dance classes, now is the time to show them off. Put on your favorite music and dance the night away. The movement will raise your core temperature and you can learn a new move or two by watching how-to videos on youtube. You’ll soon be shedding clothing and forgetting how cold it is outside.

3. Set the mood with lights and candles.

4. Light a campfire or fireplace.

It's hard to think of a romantic night in without a warm fire. Grab your blankets, hot cocoa, and s'mores and head outside. If the weather doesn't permit that, light the fire in your fireplace. Just make sure that you are following fireplace safety tips. You want to ignite your desire, not your home.

5. Build a blanket fort.

Channel your inner child and create a blanket fort inside. Grab your pillow and blankets and use chairs and other furniture to create a romantic home inside your home. Inside, you can read romantic stories, play your favorite board game, or grab you laptop/iPad and enjoy a movie. Learn how to create the perfect blanket fort here.
