Valentine’s Day is around the corner and, for a lot of people, the day of love calls for a lot of celebration. The current pandemic situation has certainly taken a toll on many people’s idea of a swanky dinner or a staycation. But that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate this special occasion at all.
Valentine’s Day at home is a great idea and is likely to be on the cards for most couples. If you are of the opinion that the 14th of February at home would turn out to be a dull and boring day, think again.

If not, you can still get creative and cook some of the most delectable dishes ranging from appetisers, main course desserts, etc., and order-in drinks.
If you are in no mood for cooking, plan on the menu and order it from your favourite restaurant. Whatever way you choose to do it, make sure you pick food and drink that feels special to you, to really make your Valentine’s Day dinner something to remember.
