Looking for a unique way to spend Valentine’s Day? If you’re ready for a solo day of self-love, a cozy night with your sweetheart, or different ways to spread some love, your friends at Billy Heroman’s, Baton Rouge’s top florist, put together a fun list of ideas. We know you’ll love spoiling friends, family, and of course, your Valentine, but don’t forget about your community or yourself this year.
Seven Ideas For the Best Date-Night-In
Send Flowers to Friends and Family
Staying in for Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you can’t send love to your friends and family. Have fun with your sweetheart as you both choose meaningful flowers to send to your friends, neighbors, or anyone else you think of that could use a reminder that they’re loved. A popular favorite is our “X’s and O’s” arrangement.
Learn a New Dance
Dust off your dancing shoes and lead your partner to the dance floor, or your living room. Turn up the romantic ballads or lively tunes and learn a new waltz, tango, or salsa. It’s time to fall in love on the dance floor and cha-cha your way into a romantic Valentine’s Day.
Have a Favorite Movie Marathon
Relax and get cozy with our Snack Attack Basket, a bottle of wine to share, and your list of favorite movies. Pick a few films you’ll both love, and then take turns picking your most-loved. It’s possible you’ll even learn something new about your Valentine or surprise them with some of your choices.
Play Nostalgic Board Games
Let out your inner child together and spend the day playing board games. Pretend you’re eight-years-old again, without a care in the world other than winning these friendly games. Find your favorites like “Battleship” and “Monopoly,” or try your luck at a hilarious game of “Twister.”
Self-Care Spa Day
The ultimate form of self-love is giving yourself some “me time.” Relax with our Bath and Body Basket from Michel Design Works, including a shea butter bar soap, luxurious bubble bath, and moisturizing body lotion. Unplug from your hectic everyday life this Valentine’s Day and unwind the best way we know how.
Pair Your Favorite Wine and Chocolates
An at-home tasting is a romantic way to enjoy your wine and chocolates together as a couple. Buy some bottles of your favorite wines and a few boxes of your favorite chocolates. If you’re not a wine connoisseur, you can have fun mixing and matching different wines and chocolates to find the best pair. But if you already know the best way to pair your wine and chocolate, enjoy this delectable treat with your sweetheart from the comfort of your own home.
Create Homemade Cards and Crafts
A fun and unique way to spend your Valentine’s Day is with a homemade card and craft night. Unleash your creativity and enjoy diving into construction paper, funky scissors, markers, stickers, and glue sticks. Make your projects more than an amusing activity, but homemade gifts for your sweetheart, family, friends, and neighbors to spread some love. They’ll admire your thoughtfulness and appreciate receiving something homemade.
However you decide to celebrate love, make sure you unplug for a while and let yourself relax. Enjoy the beauty of your day, especially if it includes a few blooms from Billy Heroman’s. Happy Valentine’s Day!
