Sometimes, traditional date nights are the best kind! Turn your living room into a home theatre with a few simple steps. First, collect all your favourite movies, whether they’re romantic comedies, dramas, or thrillers. Next, dim the lights and close the curtains to avoid a glare on your television. Finally, gather all the snacks you and your partner love, and get comfortable on the couch. It’s time for your Valentine’s Day movie marathon!
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a few fun games! Board games have come back in style, so dig up your collection and set up a tournament for the day. If you have younger children, enjoy some bonding time, and play group games such as Twister, Monopoly and Pictionary to get the whole family involved. If it’s just the two of you, you’ll want to increase the difficulty level and go with games like Dutch Blitz, Sushi Go and Code Names. Game night is such a fun and unique way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and there’s options for everyone!
Create a fun charcuterie board using all your favourite foods! Get creative and incorporate all your preferred cheeses, nuts, fruits and meats to create a beautiful board. You and your partner can spend time making this board together in lieu of a big dinner, leave it on the kitchen island, and snack on it throughout the day. If you don’t want to make the charcuterie board, but still want to enjoy one, place an order at The Block Co. They work with your budget to create a custom charcuterie board for you to enjoy at home, and are available for curbside pickup. Pair the finished charcuterie board with a bottle of red wine and have yourself a lovely Valentine’s evening.
