Lovie Dovie Versions of Your Favorite Games
Play the board game checkers but replace the game pieces with Valentine’s Day candy. Each time you get jumped or lose you eat a piece of candy. You can do this with other board games of your liking. Get creative! Think Tic Tac Toe, but with chocolates and candy hearts instead of X’s and O’s, or even a “strip” version of one of your favorite board games.

No, not the video game! Build a fort with your partner using blankets and lots of pillows. To make it more comfortable bring your mattress out and build around it. Make sure to build your fort in front of the tv or have a laptop to watch your movies and/or shows. You’ll also want to grab some of your favorite snacks and some Valentine’s Day candy. Look for battery powered candles or string lights for that special ambience.
