Take advantage of your time off from work. There are so many outdoor activities that are going to expire come spring, so enjoy them before it’s too late. Hit up your local ice skating rink before it’s transformed back into a roller rink. For the more athletic, you can engage in a friendly game of hockey with your lover. If there’s snow on the ground where you are, then have an end-of-season snowball fight. The playfulness is bound to bring the two of you closer together as you celebrate Valentine’s Day.

After all the wintry fun (or if you’re just the indoors type!), you can stay warm and snuggle with your other half by engaging in one last round of sitting by the fireplace. Take some dating advice from famous couple Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth, whose celebrity marriage makes staying home look like there’s nothing more romantic in the world. Brew some hot chocolate and put on your favorite rom-com. If you’d rather only enjoy the company of your honey, then let your favorite love songs play in the background as you hang out.

If you’re the festive type, try another date idea and have one last holiday decorating party: String up some lights and paper chains to get in the spirit. The decorations paired with a home-cooked meal will be sure to stir that home-for-the-holidays feeling all over again. If you really want to go back in time, the two of you can make cards for each other — just like the old elementary school days!
