If you try hard enough, your first year of marriage can be like one long honeymoon, all it takes is a little planning! So, if you are recently married (or hey, even engaged), why not amp up the romance on the most romantic of all holidays – Valentine’s Day!

Even though this year is a little more locked down than we would like, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make the most of your first Valentine’s as a married couple! Here are some fun, romantic ways to celebrate:

Pop Some Champagne

Maybe return to where you got engaged or visit the spot where you had your first date. Pop some champagne and let those gooey honeymoon feelings wash over you. 

Start a new Valentine’s Day Tradition

Did you do the same thing every year on Valentine’s while you were dating? If that’s the case, maybe now is the perfect time to shake things up! Start a new tradition this year (like eating cake in your wedding dress!) and enjoy Valentine’s as a married couple. 

Married Valentine’s Day

Turn your Living Room into a Spa

Invest in an at-home couples massage and relax together to kick off the evening. Being able to enjoy a massage in the comfort of your living room will bring date night to a whole new level! 

Take a Walk Down Memory Lane

Map out all your important moments and take a mini road trip! Visit where you met, your first date, your first kiss and of course, where the question was popped. Make sure to stop for some cute photo opps along the way! 

Cook a Romantic Meal Together

Restaurants tend to get booked up (or are closed entirely due to a pandemic…) – but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a romantic dinner. Take a trip to your local butcher and invest in some nice steaks, splurge on a bottle of wine and get cozy! What’s better than filet mignon in your sweat pants?!

…Or have a Professional Chef Cook You Dinner At Home

If cooking isn’t your thing, you may be surprised to learn that hiring a personal chef for the night is super attainable – in fact, some of Toronto’s top caterer’s are delivering for Vday this year! How awesome would it be to eat delicious food, from the comfort of your own home and not have to do the dishes after! 

Whatever your vibe, there are plenty of ways to make your first married Valentine’s super special!
