There’s something to be said about Valentine’s at home. For one, dress-code is completely up to you. Want rock a bathrobe? The cozier the better. Evening dinner wear? Diamonds certainly are a girl’s best friend. Whether you’re celebrating a virtual Galentine’s with your best pals, a romantic evening with your hunny, or a day of love with those you love – there are plenty of ways to make this Valentine’s Day Special. With a little help from Downtown Burlington shops, we’ve put together an easy Valentine’s guide to help you spread some love (and if you share some love with yourself, we’re not here to judge).

Pick-Up a Card for Your Valentine at:

Are you with someone you could quarantine with forever? Waves in the Village has witty, punny, hilarious cards for everyone:

Have a night at the spa: 

We recommend: a bath robe, candles, and bath goodies:

New from Joseph Tassoni is the JT Spa Collection. There is nothing more soothing than cocooning yourself in the softest dream robe. Available for men and women (#twinsies), you and your partner can transport yourself to a luxury spa right in the comfort of home.

Light some soy candles from The Artisanville, grab some a special soap, massage bar, or bubble box from The Handmade House, or a cleansing scrub from Waters Edge Salon and Spa. A little relaxation, a little revitalization, and a little romance are just what Cupid ordered.

Dinner and Movie (or Game Night):

Every Valentine’s Day our downtown restaurants offer a variety of Valentine’s Day promotions & delicious menus for you to choose from just like Martini House’s Valentine’s Day Box! Search our wide variety of downtown establishments offering takeout and delivery here.

If you like the idea of ordering in but still want to play a part in making dinner, Son of a Peach Pizzeria, Culaccino Bar and Rayhoon Persion Eatery make-at-home packages. Get saucy with the one you love by making pizza or pasta at home – we also love this idea for a family.

Once dinner is made, hop into your jammies (Bocana on Pearl has adorable Valentine’s jammies), throw on your favouite movie or get competitive in a game of Scrabble (note: if you haven’t gotten competitive during Scrabble, you haven’t lived).
