Stay in for a cozy meal for two and try out these recipes with a candle or two to set the mood.
We got you covered from breakfast until dinner!

After your meal, why not binge watch your favorite movies and tv shows? Or throw a dance party just for the two of you? Make the evening even more special by dressing up in your best clothes or matching pajamas if you’d rather dress down!

Though Valentine’s Day is a day of love, that doesn’t mean every day can’t be filled with romance. Make your partner feel special everyday and show them how much you love and care for them without a holiday as a reminder. It’s the small things that count like listening to your significant other and comforting them when they need it. In the end, Valentine’s Day is all about spending quality time with your special someone so make every day count.
