Last Minute Valentine's Day Ideas

Last Minute Valentine's Day Ideas

So life got in the way and somehow February 14th rolled around without a single thought on what you're going to do tonight....well, we've got you covered. Whether you're in a relationship, single, or with your girls, we've got a few last minute ideas on how you can still celebrate Valentine's Day.


  • Download a date night printable from Etsy or Pinterest (both have tons of great ideas)
  • Already took out dinner for tonight? Make it special by eating outside on a blanket or decorating your dining room table like you would for guests
  • Create a luxury movie night. Bring the table to your couch and add a black or red table cloth, paired with tons of comfy pillows, and a few popcorn containers and outdoor lights for decor. Then have dinner while watching a movie you've been dying to see.
  • Grab some Chinese takeout and a couple of Chinese New Year decorations from Party City, set up dinner around your coffee table and eat on the floor. 
  • Make your bedroom a hotel room with cute door hangers found on Pinterest, adding extra pillows, a mini bar basket (filled with drinks and snacks) placed on your night stand, an extra blanket on the edge of the bed, candles, and some chocolate pillow mints.


  • Pour yourself a glass of wine and paint with your favorite music on in the background
  • Draw yourself a nice bath with candles and take time to read that book you've been dying to read
  • Order take out from your favorite restaurant and curl up on your couch with your favorite show on Netflix
  • Cook a meal you've been dying to eat from your recipes board on Pinterest (we know you have one!) Drink wine and listen to Parisian music while cooking

With the Girls

  • Do an old school slumber party with a big comforter in your living room, tons of pillows and every one dressed in their PJs. Serve ice cream sundaes and watch a Valentine's Day movie
  • Pick up some ready made dough at your grocery store along with tons of pizza toppings and throw a pizza night where everyone makes their own pizza (in the shape of a heart of course!)
  • Create a wine tasting night with printables from Pinterest, ready to go appetizers from your grocery store, and of course tons and tons of wine
  • Have everyone bring over old year books and photos and reminisce over some wine and valentine's day cookies
