Roses are red. Violets are blue. How is it already February 2022?

My boyfriend and I celebrate a lot of love during Valentine’s Week: his birthday, our anniversary, and Valentine’s Day. By the time the 14th rolls around, we’re typically pretty celebrated out. But, after recently admitting that we’ve both become a little too comfortable being homebodies together, we’re aiming to share our love through new weekly romantic adventures.

We have a few ideas for you to do the same – whether you’re in the honeymoon stage, stagnated, or rekindling your love, ignite the romance with these 21 romantic date ideas.

Stay at Home

1. Get in the mood with maude burn no. 2 ($30)

We love burning a maude no.2 candle, turning down the lights, and turning up the music. It’s the perfect lead-in to a couples massage session that ends with a steamy shower and wash no. 1.

2. Build an indoor fort with an Unhide blanket (starting at $45)

Grab some sheets, chairs, and snacks. Light up some gel chafing dishes and start your own indoor smores station. We loaded up all of our Unhide Lil Marsh Blankets as the base then recruited our giant Marshmallow for this cuddle occasion. Throw on a movie and enjoy!

@thequalityedit So many indoor comfy adventures with @unhide blankets! They’re seriously so soft without the guilt. #unhide #datenightideas #unboxing #blanketreview ♬ original sound - The Quality Edit

3. Pleasure each other with Dame (Starting at $30)

Exploring sexual wellness is both healthy and empowering for every romantic couple. My boyfriend bought me Dame’s Fin to explore my own body, but damn was it a great gift for both of us! Dame’s new Come Together pack is perfect for couples to explore each other's bodies and intensify all the sensations.

4. A lovely night in with Hello Fresh

Skip the pre fixe menus and cook up the love at home instead. Hello Fresh’s 3 course Beef Tenderloin with Truffle Mash would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. It includes a ricotta crostini appetizer and vanilla cheesecake. *chefs kiss*

5. Serve up an aphrodisiac in Our Place’s Always Pan ($145)

Scallops are known for their natural ability to raise estrogen and testosterone levels, making them the perfect dinner for Valentine’s Day. We love this Half Baked Harvest Honey Garlic Butter Scallops recipe that cooks to perfection in our Our Place Always Pan. Pair with the Brightland Rosette Garlic Infused Olive Oil for a light and savory meal to boost your sexual desires.

6. Get dirty and steamy with Nori ($120)

If your partner’s love language is cleaning (like mine), plan a Sunday clean and organization day. Then steam your nicest outfits and hit a local bar for a drink to celebrate. We found ironing all of our clothes with our Nori handheld iron to be insanely satisfying.

7. Play with your food with DEUX’s Valentine's Day Pack ($60)

Get lubed up with Deux’s Valentine’s pack, which includes a jar of limited-edition Chocolate Chunk good-for-you cookie dough, Drip (the brand’s insanely-delicious Nutella alternative), and Woo Coconut Love Oil. Absolutely nothing sounds better.

8. Stir up a hot lot of Love with Fly By Jing’s Hot Pot Starter Set ($135).

Our Hot Pot date nights always turn spicy. Fly by Jing’s Hot Pot Starter Set makes it easy to share our stories while crafting up a crazy-delicious meat-and-veggie-filled soup.

9. Cheeseboard, cards and wine night with Nomadica (starting at $54)

Wine in a can has never been dreamier. Complete with unique artwork for each variety, Nomadica is an utterly bright and fresh wine canned for sustainability. We love crafting our own cheese board and scanning the QR code on Nomadica’s Red Blend for a perfect night of playing cards and enjoying each other's company.

10. Spread the love with Shiko Beauty masks

We love drawing each other a bath and throwing on a Shiko Beauty mask for a night of pampering. It’s a simple and easy date night while being present together.

1. Slip on your favorite sexy strapless backless dress with Gatherall ($68)

If you’ve got reservations at a restaurant for date night, it’s time to whip out that perfect strapless, backless dress. The Gatherall Bra is a reusable medical-grade adhesive silicone bra that actually stays up. Welcome your trusty new best friend for any sexy Valentine’s Day dress.

2. Sit at the bar and get uncomfortable with {THE AND} Couples Edition Cards ($29)

This is our favorite weekly activity. Our seating preference is always at the bar because it allows us to have an intimate conversation and have fun with the bartenders. We always have a stack of The Skin Deep {THE AND} Couples Edition cards. Each card asks a question that challenges us to get uncomfortable and share stories that bring us closer together. Better paired with wine.

3. Head to the park for sips and strokes with Paint Anywhere (from $48)

Set up your romantic picnic and paint strokes in the park. This Paint Anywhere kit uses paint by numbers to create magical pieces of art. It comes with paintbrushes and acrylic paints. Obsessed.

4. Book a romantic couples photoshoot with Snappr (Starting at $89)

Capture the love and frame it forever. We love homey photoshoots celebrating our everyday homebody love, contrasted with dressed-up photos at our favorite bar in the city. Snappr’s marketplace of on-demand photographers makes it easy to book pre-vetted pro photographers for <$100.

5. Book a cooking class with Cozy Meal (Price varies)

Building a skill together helps build communication skills and teamwork. Guided cooking classes with Cozy Meal provide a fun experience and all the supplies needed for a successful Valentine’s Day meal.

6. Sync your mind, body, and soul with ClassPass (Starting at $15)

A couple that sweats together stays together. Build up your endurance and trust with a wide range of classes on ClassPass. My boyfriend and I love boxing, strength, and HIIT classes.

Gift Your Love

4. Schedule a virtual ring try-on with Couple

A virtual consultation with Couple is an exciting first step in the ring shopping journey. Couple’s concierge will walk you through classes, sizes, clarity, and cut and ease any stress along the way. The whole process is very romantic and intimate – I cannot recommend it enough!

Hopefully, these ideas inspire you for Valentine’s Day and beyond. There’s no greater joy than adventuring together, and these brands make it approachable and really freaking fun.
