Unless you booked a reservation months ago, most of us won’t be going to our favorite restaurant or out on the town this Valentine’s Day. Don’t think this gives you an out on planning something special for your sweetie, though! There are still plenty of ways to celebrate with your partner, a couple friends, or just celebrate yourself with some “me-time.”
Here are a few date night ideas for staying in and making this Valentine’s Day the best yet.
Snuggle up to a movie marathon
With so many new streaming services to choose from (thanks, COVID), it’s easy to find a new series to start with your boo. Or, pick a lineup of your favorite cheesy rom-coms, start the Marvel movies in order, or choose some of your favorite silly stoner movies to watch all night.
To make your movie marathon a little more interesting, use a different piece or form of cannabis each movie. Hit your Slim Twist for the first, pack up your Bowser for the second, and bring it all home with the Comet during the last movie.
This Valentine’s Day in, try your hand at a new cannabis-infused recipe. Bake something sweet you know they’ll love, like cookies or brownies, or infuse cannabutter with their favorite meal.
If your partner’s love language is spending quality time together, make a whole day out of it and bake the edibles together from start to finish (“finish” here implies the consumption of said edibles). Trying something new together is a great way to bond and problem-solve as a team.
Give (& get) a medicated massage
Massages are always great, but make it extra special this year by incorporating your favorite wellness ingredient. Light some candles, throw on some music and grab a CBD or full-spectrum massage oil. These lotions and oils provide extra relaxation by decreasing skin inflammation and relieving muscle pain.
There are tons of CBD oils and massages on the market, so make sure its one that’s been third-party tested for toxins and contains a measurable amount of CBD and/or THC.
Private dab-tasting event
If you live in a state where marijuana is legal, stop by your local dispensary and get a few different strains of wax you’ve never tried before. Set them all up with a clean dab rig and surprise your sweetie with a private dab-tasting event! Have them rate their favorites and maybe even see if they can guess the strains. Not only will they get super lifted, they’ll feel special that you put everything together for one of their favorite activities.
Wake and bake!
Who doesn’t love breakfast in bed? Make it a little more special by bringing your partner a rolled joint right along with their favorite breakfast. It’ll be the perfect start to their day, even if the only other plans you have are snuggling and hanging out at home.
Even though we’re still partially locked down this Valentine’s Day, at least you’re locked down with your favorite person. Take it back to basics—plus a little bud—to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember.
