Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and with it being just another night in with your partner, you might be wondering how to make it special. We’ve rounded up some romantic ideas for an unforgettable stay-at-home celebration.
Unwind with calming scents
Set the tone for your relaxing evening together with Molton Brown’s Pink Pepperpod Candle from House of Fraser. The spicy scented candle, blended with ginger, rich patchouli and pink pepperpod will create a sensuous atmosphere for two.

Get dressed up
At the moment there aren’t many reasons for splashing out on a new dress so make this one! We love this gorgeous floral and leopard print mini dress from Alice Temperley. It has just the right amount of frills to swish around the living room.

A gourmet meal delivered to your door
Indulge with a fancy takeaway from Aqua, the group of restaurants famous for their delicious food and spectacular views across London. Choose from a variety of dishes from Japanese restaurant Aqua Kyoto or Spanish tapas from its sister restaurant Aqua Nueva. For a limited time, you can also order from the iconic Shard itself as Aqua Shard’s magical Peter Pan Afternoon Tea is available to enjoy at home.
Aqua at home boxes come stylishly wrapped with ribbon and contain simple instructions to heat up and serve your meal in just a few minutes. Deliveries to any address within the M25. No mess, no fuss!
Order direct from Aqua restaurants.
Patty & Bun Burger Kit
If your idea of romance is about getting messy with your favourite burger then bring the Patty & Bun experience into your own home with its first ever DIY Kits. Choose from meat or vegan options for the perfect night in for two. We love the Jamaican Mule Kit Box which comes with ingredients for cocktails too.
Order your DIY kit direct from Patty & Bun.
And speaking of cocktails, why not serve yours in style with these elegant martini glasses from top designer Tom Dixon. Available at Selfridges the set of two have the recognisable Tom Dixon copper colour and reflective sheen. Perfect for that Instagram shot!

A relaxing soak
Bathe in love with this Valentine’s bath bomb from Lush. The Heart Beat Bath Bomb is scented with Rose Jam and has a spoonful of popping candy get your bath bubbling. Feel good knowing the rose is sourced from a regenerative rose project in Pakistan. What’s not to love?

Upgrade your TV subscription
When inevitably the evening ends in front of the television, don’t go back to the same Netflix series you’ve been watching all week. Splash out on a TV subscription you haven’t yet tried during lockdown. The NOW TV Smart Stick offers a one-month cinema pass with a choice of over 1000 films so you can snuggle up for a romantic movie and pretend you’re in your local cinema.

Who said takeaway was just for dinner? Marks & Spencer are offering the ultimate Valentine’s Breakfast in Bed experience. Complete with love sausage, heart-shaped crumpets, coffee and peach and passionfruit bellini this will make a delightful Valentine’s morning.
