Now that quarantining is the “new normal”, a lot of folks will be spending 14th February at home. On the bright side, you and your partner get to avoid the hustle-and- bustle of the holiday. 

You won’t have to worry about reserving restaurant tables, enduring long lines at entertainment spots and breaking the bank just to celebrate the day of love.

If you choose to stay at home, you can still make it special. Here are some fun stay-at-home Valentine’s Day ideas to try out with your lover:

Indulge in Breakfast in Bed

Simple gestures like breakfast in bed become special when you take them to the next level. Make a spread of your favorite things on a cute tray. Try heart shaped pastries on Valentine’s and serve with a favorite book, newspaper or magazine. If cooking isn’t your strong suit, then you could try this easy peasy one pan breakfast by Kenyan food vlogger Miss Mandi

Champagne Dinner 

There’s no better way to wind up this romantic day than to pop a bottle of champagne. To bring out the radiant, spontaneous, and seductive qualities of Rosé, culinary & champagne expert of Moët & Chandon’s chef de cuisine (head chef) created the unforgettable “Pink Dinners” in 2012, a series of elegant meals organized around the world in celebration of the seductive intensity of Rosé Impérial.

Today the chef de cuisine would recommend pairing Rosé Impérial with dishes that complement the champagne’s pink colour with ambry highlights, namely red meats served raw or grilled, red tuna and crustaceans, summer legumes, black olives, and intense cheeses. 


However you choose to celebrate with your partner  this Sunday, remember it’s all about love and it’s the thought that counts.
