Tired of the crowds, the long waits, the high costs, and the pressure that sometimes come with planning a great Valentine's Day out? At Chesapeake Homes, we are in the business of building you a beautiful home and we are here to help you have all the information you need to get the most out of your new construction. This year plan Valentine's Day at home and skip all the hustle and bustle. Try one of our date night ideas below:

Home-Cooked Romantic Dinner

Nothing says "I love you" more than putting work into a delicious meal for your partner. Whether choosing a meal you can make together like homemade pasta or learning to make your significant other's favorite meal shows a certain attention to detail that won't go unnoticed. 

Spa Night at Home

Everyone needs a relaxing night at home, so why not upgrade to a relaxing spa night? Create a spa atmosphere with candles, soothing music, and soft lighting. Make sure there are also plenty of spa items to do such as a foot soak, face masks, meditation, skin exfoliation, hot towels, and massages. Serve fruit, chocolate, or a refreshing herbal tea to complete the calm evening. 

Crafting for Two

For those who are crafty, this is the perfect time to try out a new skill or activity together. Try a virtual art class from home if you want an instructor. You can even find a step by step class on YouTube for free! Whether you want to paint, crochet, create a scrapbook, do a puzzle, or come up with your own crafty idea, this is a great way to spend time together in a relaxing, fun atmosphere. 

Dessert and Wine Pairing

You can also create a DIY wine-pairing night. Create a night filled with desserts and wines as if you were in an actual tasting room. Combos such as Chardonnay with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, Cabernet Sauvignon wit Dark Chocolate Cake, and Zinfandel with Berry Cobbler are just a few combinations to wake up your pallet. You can also do a savory version of this idea, with combinations such as  Sauvignon Blanc with goat cheese and Merlot with grilled lamb. 

Love Letter Exchange

No need for gifts this year either. Plan with your partner to do something straight from the heart. Encourage each other to exchange love letters with one another. Provide each other a thoughtfully written letter expressing feelings and sharing cherished memories you have together. It is a gift that will be remembered, and that no money could buy.

We wish everyone a lovely Valentine's Day and hope no matter how you choose to spend the holiday, that you enjoy every minute of it! Happy Valentine's Day!
