Valentine’s Day has (almost) arrived! Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day or both, I’m sharing some last minute ideas if you don’t have any plans yet. All of these would be perfect for 2 people or for a group, depending on who you’re celebrating with. These are just a few, so I’d love to hear your ideas too!

1 Get crafty! You don’t need to go anywhere to do a paint night. Have one at your house! You can grab some wine or champagne glasses from the dollar store to paint, or get small canvas boards and do a more traditional paint night. You could also decorate wooden signs for you house, make wreaths, create banners, whatever you’re into! This one takes a little preparation, but not much! Just a trip to A.C. Moore or Dollar Tree.

2 Game night. Bring out whatever board or card games you have and start playing! If your friends are joining you, have them bring whatever games they have too. There are also a lot of games you can find online if you search for Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day games. Here are the results I found on Pinterest.

3 Get cooking (or baking). You can either have a potluck with your friends or cook something on your own. You could also make it a competition for who can make the best Valentine’s Day cookies or whose side is best.


4. Movie night in. I love watching the movie Valentine’s Day every year around this time. I never get sick of it, but you could also grab something from Redbox, watch any of your old DVDs or there’s always Netflix, of course! If you go with this idea, I definitely recommend some festive popcorn! You can find a fun recipe at the end of this post. 🙂


5. Check Groupon. There are tons of ideas on Groupon that you may be able to do last minute. When I searched in my area, I found glow in the dark mini golf, wine tastings, brewery tours and ice skating. You may find something in your area you didn’t even know about!


Here is the popcorn recipe!


-I bag popcorn

-1 12 oz. bag of white chocolate chips

-Toppings (M&M’s, candy hearts, marshmallows, etc.)


-Microwave your popcorn. When it’s finished, pour it in a bowl.

-Melt half bag of white chocolate chips in the microwave

(Put them in a microwave safe bowl. I put them in for 1 minute at a time at 70% power. I did this three times and it was perfect!)

-Pour the melted white chocolate over it and stir to coat.

-Put on your toppings!

Enjoy! Oakley sure wished he could 🙂


Thanks so much for reading! Hope you have a great Valentine’s Day!
