Keep the romance at home -- there's still time to get everything you need for a wonderful Valentine's Day "in."

We hope you love these items as much as we did! GateHouse Media may collect a share of sales from links on this page.

You could brave the crowds in restaurants all over town on Valentine's Day, but sometimes romance can be found much closer to home. In fact, we recommend staying home on Valentine's Day. Cook a lovely meal, light some candles and take a bubble bath together (if you both fit) and snuggle up with some chocolates to watch a love story unfold in movie form. There's still time to get everything you need for a wonderful, romantic Valentine's Day "in."   


Cook a romantic dinner


A delicious meal and a nice bottle of wine can really get your evening off to a great start.  Cook up some pasta with these luxurious preserved black summer truffles.  Be sure to treat that wine right with this electric bottle opener and ice bucket set. Keep your bubbly chilled in whatever room you find yourselves smooching in.  Use this fun heart shaped saute pan to cook up some pancakes the next morning.   We love this cookbook from Magnolia Bakery with delicious cupcakes you can decorate any way you like.  


                                                              Lights, scents, sounds



Create a cozy and romantic spa experience right in your own home. This rosewood and patchouli scented soy wax candle from the Paddywax hygge collection will get you in the mood as will these spa bath fizzies with soothing scents like Forever Young and Gotta Have It.  Don't forget the music. Alexa can help you choose the perfect mood music for your evening with Valentine's playlists. Need a speaker in that spa room? The Amazon Echo is 30% off right now. Alexa will play that romantic music, find you recipes, dim the lights and more.

                                                    Pick up some chocolate treats



Chocolate hearts, bonbons, truffles and more are the perfect gift for your sweetheart.  This bouquet of chocolate roses will delight anyone on your Valentine's Day gift list including the kids, your spouse and parents. The Swiss formulated chocolate is made using the finest beans with fresh milk and designed to look like a bouquet of a dozen roses. We also love this Valentine heart gourmet truffle assortment from Lindt. Delicately decorated and enrobed in rich Lindt Chocolate, each extravagant truffle conceals a creamy, silky center. This 20-piece assorted chocolate gift from Godiva  includes selections like dark chocolate, mousse, white chocolate, strawberry, milk chocolate, coffee, caramel and matcha, artfully arranged inside a beautiful illustrated floral design, perfect for a swoon-worthy Valentine's Day gift.

      Give a massage



This almond and lavender essential oil with bergamot and jojoba is perfect for soothing sore muscles when giving your Sweetheart a massage. We also like this oil made with aromatic coconut oil called Tropical Passions. Don't know the first thing about giving a massage? Try this deep tissue shiatsu back massage pillow with adjustable speed and heating features or this version, a kneading massager with neck, shoulder, back, leg and foot massage functions.
