Fun Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day at Home

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it's time to start planning out this celebratory day.

Even though Ontario is abiding by a strict stay-at-home order, you can still do a lot of wonderful things together with your partner, enjoying your day at home. Here are some of our favourite Valentine's Day activities.


Start with Breakfast in Bed

You could treat your loved one with breakfast in bed! Whether you cook their favourite meal yourself, or use a local delivery service to order their favourite breakfast in, breakfast in bed is a great way to kick off this day of appreciation.


Write a Love/Gratitude Letter

This Valentine's Day, show your loved ones you care by putting all of the words that aren't always easy to say out loud, on paper! While you may not feel like writing is something you excel at, it's the message that counts. Share some of the things you love about them, or some things you're thankful for. 


Plan a Paint Night

You don't have to head outside to have a paint night with your loved one; try a virtual paint night! There are several step-by-step painting projects available on YouTube for all skill levels. All you'll need is a canvas, paints, and paint brushes, which are available at your local craft or dollar store. 


Gift a Cooking Class

Cooking together is a great way to bond as a couple. If you or your loved one want to learn new ways to cook, Longo's in Vaughan offers virtual cooking classes. They even have virtual cooking classes for kids. 


Have a Special Dinner

Whether your meal is for just you and your sweetheart or for the whole family, you should definitely make this dinner special. You can either cook something together or decide on a meal from a local restaurant. Why don't you dress up for the occasion too, just like you would if you were going out to eat?


Make It a Game Night

Whether just you and your partner or you and your family, have a game night this Valentine's Day! Pull out the old board games, try some virtual options, or make it festive with these Valentine's Day themed games. Playing games with family is a fun way to connect and spend time together.
