6 Epic Date Ideas for your Valentine’s Day at Home

February 3rd 2021


Struggling to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit? Perhaps it’s the restrictions of national lockdown or the constant coronavirus updates circulating the media and your social feed. However, in the true nature of 2021, we have some epic stay-at-home date ideas to spruce up your celebrations. Whether you are living with your partner in lockdown, adapting to staying apart in separate households or even flying solo, here is some ‘Valent-inspiration’ to perk up your weekend! 

Have a Duvet Day

There’s no better excuse for a full day in bed than this! Are you someone that usually feels guilty about staying in bed past lunchtime? Well with everything going on in the world right now, staying in bed on a Sunday could be the best way to spend Valentine’s Day. Afterall, we cannot go out for a fancy meal or treat ourselves to a weekend away…

Make your duvet day exciting by having a cheeky breakfast in bed! You or your partner could indulge with a full English and a side of Bucks Fizz. We have great deals on fizz such as the I Heart Prosecco 75cl (link to product) for only £7.99! It’s also a great opportunity to binge on the latest Netflix series you’ve been meaning to watch together. Netflix and Chill has never looked better! But don’t forget the snacks… Find your local store here.

Mr & Mrs Come Dine With Me

We’ve all heard of Come Dine With Me. In fact, many people have given it a go themselves with their friends and family members. Since we cannot mix in households, you could deliver a home cooked meal to your partner’s house to show them you love them. Or if you’re enjoying the single life, you can share images between your family of friends of your fabulous cooking creations as a source of entertainment. Try rating each other’s dishes and make it fun!

If you are living together in lockdown, why not take it in turns over the weekend to cook a meal for one another. On Valentine’s weekend, create a menu for your loved one and be as creative as possible with what you cook for them. And nothing compliments a romantic meal better than a glass of wine… Check out our deals on wine below:

2 for £10

2 for £12

Head-to-Head Karaoke

Get the mic out! With the bars and pubs being closed, this could be the next best thing…

You can now do karaoke simply with Youtube or online karaoke sites (most of them are free!). Or try shopping around on Amazon for a cheap mic and machine. Singing the classics such as “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” and “Don’t Stop Believin’” will really get you in the celebratory mood. Head to your local store and get the drinks in here.

Here’s some deals to get you started:

2 for £5.50 on WKD’s

Any 3 for £5 on Ready to Drink Seltzer’s

Wine and dine your partner this Valentine’s Day. Get out the table cloth and order your favourite takeaway. Put on a little romantic music and you’re all set! Here are some handpicked wines that we currently have on offer:

Red Wine

Diablo Dark Red 75cl

Dark Horse Malbec 75cl

White Wine

Have a Games Night

Getting competitive is the perfect way to bond with people closest to you. You can even play online games from any distance apart. If you’re flying solo, why not play a few online games on your games console with the lads and some beers? Or even have a Galentine’s Zoom quiz night with your best friends and a few glasses of fizz.

There’s nothing wrong with treating yourself on Valentine’s night and games can make it extra fun in lockdown. If you are living with your partner, family or friends, get the board games out and make a night of it. Check out our latest deals and offers on drinks for your games night here!

Become a Mixologist

We can all admit that we are really missing hitting the bars right now… So why not bring it home! Become a mixologist and create some funky cocktails with your partner in crime. Staying ‘in in’ with some cocktails at home can be just as great as they come when you’re ‘out out’! All you need is a boston shaker and some ice!

You can even try your hand at some Valentine’s themed cocktails. Check out our latest cocktail recipes tailored to spice up the romance here! Or see our latest deals below on miniature drinks which are perfect for creating cocktails:
