Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays! It’s the perfect opportunity to remind your loved ones how much you appreciate them through a special message or action. While I can’t help you with the speech portion of this day, I can give you some unique ideas on fun ways to celebrate. From which movies to watch to how to make easy homemade Valentine’s Day desserts, I’ve got you covered!

Binge some lovey-dovey movies with your significant other! One of my love languages includes physical touch, which is common. Watching a movie, or multiple films in a row, provides an ideal chance to snuggle up with your loved one and share an intimate moment. Here are some cheesy rom-coms to choose from:

  • “Valentine’s Day” – Hulu
  • “The Notebook” – Hulu
  • “Sleepless in Seattle” – Hulu/Amazon Prime
  • “When Harry Met Sally” – Hulu/Amazon Prime
  • “You’ve Got Mail” – Hulu/Amazon Prime
  • “How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days” – Amazon Prime
  • “Set it Up” – Netflix 
  • “Always Be My Maybe” – Netflix
  • “When We First Met” – Netflix
  • “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” – Netflix 

If you aren’t the type of person that can make a homemade meal, eating out at a restaurant or ordering takeout is another great way to make this holiday memorable. Personally, I only eat out at restaurants on special occasions, so getting dressed up and enjoying fancy food is definitely worth the price! Here are some of my favorite Post Road recommendations for you and your partner to chow down at:

  • Pizzeria Molto 
  • Quattro Pazzi Cafe 
  • Cafe Madeline
  • Old Post Tavern
  • Colony Grill
  • Flipside Burger
  • Bodega Taco Bar
  • Fin Japanese Restaurant 
  • Milkcraft
  • 16 Handles

Creating some DIY holiday crafts can make the day even more festive! Additionally, it can be a fun and silly activity to do with your boyfriend or girlfriend to show off your artistic side. Here are seven of the cutest DIY valentines decorations I found that I encourage you to try and make:


My all-time favorite hobby is baking, so living in a small college dorm room where the only available appliances are a microwave and fridge can get pretty frustrating. This doesn’t stop me, though! For any other sweet-tooth college students, I researched some of the most delicious V-Day recipes that are dorm friendly, along with other holiday goodies you can purchase at a store:

Even if you aren’t in a relationship this year, it doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate this holiday with your family, friends or even yourself! After all, it would be a shame to have these great ideas go to waste. Whatever you decide to do to celebrate, I hope you take time to reflect on how much your loved ones mean to you and make sure to let them know. Happy Valentine’s Day!
