Night in means more quality time

Definitely a night in, relaxed at home. It is more romantic than going out to a restaurant among all the other couples. I prefer to have some quiet time, maybe a nice dinner prepared with love, a movie in our sitting room afterwards. There is no need for anything fancy as the most important thing is being with each other.

Stay in but go out too

Who needs all that hustle n' bustle of going out, booking a table, hiring a taxi, braving the cold, going up against other Valentines dates and all of that when you can have a nice, warm, cosy romantic night in. And you can still go out by staying in. If you know what I mean. And sure, you might have to clean and wash up after. And sure enough, I like to go out sometimes, who doesn't!? But it's still nice to occasionally stay in and have a romantic Valentine's day / night in with your partner when you make it nice. Cook a really nice meal, put a couple bottles of vino in the fridge, get some gourmet snacks in and treat them. They love it! And these nights are often appreciated more than the ones where you go out since you have to put the spread on yourself.

Where the magic happens

To be honest, when you celebrate valentines day at your house or at your partner's house, it's more intimate. And of course, at home is where the magic happens. After eating and watching a movie in your room, what do you think would come next?

Anyways, what I do is actually a combination of both. We go and dine outside (if I have money, at a fine dining restaurant), then maybe watch a movie at a cinema, then go home and make up. :D

Staying In

I prefer to spend Valentines Day at home with my love. I think it is a much nicer time together. It is more comfortable for me and more romantic. I do not like going out. It is such a busy evening so I find it way too stressful for my likings. I would choose a night in over a night out any time.

All night long!

I am not that outgoing anymore and I prefer to spend high-quality time with my partner.

If you go outside for dinner, sure it is fun but you are also surrounded by other people and have to behave in a certain way.

That is why I prefer to stay in and so does my partner. We can do whatever we want without having to worry!

relaxing and comfortable

It will definitely be a night in for me, as I have three young kids with me and I usually don't get someone else to babysit them. Moreover, my husband and I prefer to stay at home during this kind of festival, as we don't like crowded places. I think staying at home is more relaxing and comfortable, and we get to enjoy better.

I'd Say "In"

I guess that this would most likely depend upon your partner's preference, or how the two of you compromise, but I have had some of the best Valentine's nights ever just staying at home with some wine, cooking dinner together, and then some romance afterwards. Every eating establishment worth going to on Valentine's Night gets obnoxiously packed, and I prefer to have a bit more privacy than that with my significant other. The older I have gotten, I would say that I prefer staying home for this holiday.

Convenient

Going out is not convenient because too traffic and lots of people while staying night in is good because you are in a comfort of your own home and it's not crowded and noisy.

Night in

Valentine's day is a very special event in which I want to show the person I trust and love how much I care about them. And there's nothing better than spending some time together doing something romantic, just having a good time relaxing. A lot of moments are better when you're just with your partner, going to a restaurant will take those moments away.

Valentines Day Night Out

Valentines Day Night Out
Make that someone special feel special by taking them on a night out maybe a fancy restaurant and spoil them to show them how much they mean to you. It isn't just about spoiling someone it is that time of year where you really get to spend some quality time with the person you love dearly.

A great setting is making sure you ring around and book a restaurant first before the last minute as some people do tend to wait till it is too late. Book a table and take your lover for a romantic meal for 2 and spend that quality time together. If you have children find a babysitter, have nice meal and glass of wine and both you use this time to just show each other what love really is and how much you both mean to each other.

Perfect for romance with a night out instead of sat at home, take the time to show how much you really appreciate that someone special in your life. Valentine's day is a special day so do something special be spontaneous and romantic.

Pros
  • spoil the person you love to show how much they mean to you
  • No need to cook, go to fancy restaurant and enjoy your night

Cons
  • Hard if you have children it means finding a babysitter
  • can cost you money even tho it only happens once a year

I love getting away, even if it's just for a night. I enjoy eating out at a good restaurant, a nice glass of wine or a cocktail, and going back to a nice hotel. It's a nice change of pace from everyday life and makes Valentines feel even more special and celebratory. Plus it's good for the local economy! Local businesses make good money on Valentines evening. I enjoy Valentines Day Night Out for sure!

Night Out

I prefer night out. And also going for various places. You can see that some of the time it can be really good in many ways. And another thing is that night out often takes more time due to lot of people having reservation for food. So it's a good experience either way.

Night Out

While the restaurants might be a little bit crowded I'd rather have a night out. I wouldn't want to cook anything and I don't think takeout is the right experience for a special occasion.

In the early years of my married life, my husband and I went out for a Valentine’s date on my initiative. He just wanted to stay home but I insisted because I wanted to feel romantic. Whoa, there was no transportation, all the cabs were full and it took us almost an hour to get a ride. Reaching the place, we were disgusted because all the restaurants were full to the brim with the long queue for the waiting line. That was one Valentine’s Day that I wouldn’t forget. We went home with nothing achieved and had a sandwich at home for our Valentine’s dinner. Now it’s always a night in for a totally enjoyable night.

I have always loved Valentine's day in, it gives one the opportunity of spending time with the only one that matters in privacy, no intruder and no distractions.The place will be so cozy and warm and it will be a great time to reminisce on your past life or life journey with your partner and also definitely how to move the relationship forward.It always a bight that new life is breathed into the relationship and probably new promises are made.

I love going out at night with my other half to celebrate Valentines Day. We usually go to our favourite restaurant and after dinner, we head to the nearest beach. I really enjoy walking on the beach with the person I love the most at night. This is so relaxing and I feel happy doing something different. I don't like celebrating Valentines Day at home as I have to cook, wash the dishes and do the other household chores. I usually feel exhausted after this and all I want is to go to bed.

I think many people among us are going to spend the night and day both time. I think valentine is the time when you are going to have a good time with someone. And that can be a good thing. You just have to spend that day the right way. And you can consider spending it in a way you can have it better. Another thing is that it's fun to have that day. So it does not matter at the end.

I think it basically comes down to what you feel like doing and how much money you have. I think if you are short on funds then staying home might be in order. If you feel like spending money and doing something different, going out might be the best thing.

As I live on my own now, I will be staying in on Valentine's day. It would look silly if I were to go out on that evening on my own. Everyone would think I'd been stood up which would make me laugh but I would rather not look silly. When I am in a relationship though, it's best to go out and have a romantic time with your partner. It is such a busy time though, that you have to book a taxi and restaurant in advance.

This depends on what kind of personality you have.If you're an introvert or an extrovert. I am an introvert so I'd go for a night in any day over a night out. I like staying at home and doing things with my partner. I find this more romantic. Time is the greatest gift someone can give you(I learned this the hard way) Why would you then want to divide it, with other people? At home we cook dinner together, share a bottle of wine ,dance to romantic music e.t.c It's amazing!

I prefer the day night in because I am not much of party goer and at night I read and focus on every other activities that I engage in, I don't like Valentine's day that much, I prefer staying at home alone since it's like a public holiday for that day. I don't see the need of even celebrating Valentine's day.

A valentine night in is obviously going to be the pick for me a shy person but I love going about things in private and rarely public in some few cases.

Valentine celebration as the world has turned it to be is a day of showing or renewing emotional vows to love ones. Events like this is a very special one and I personally think it should be spent within close doors away from eyes of others in a romantic way for two. That's how I picture spending a valentine day with my partner. Unfortunately, am not a believer of valentine's day celebration. But don't get me wrong, I do believe in the valentine tale itself. I think he was a great man and deserves whatever memorial celebration given to him.

When I was single, there used to be Valentines Day Night Out. Since I never had a serious relationship, my Valentines Day Night Out used to be with boys like me. We used to dine in the resturant, drink and pass crass remarks on our own life. Now I am married, there Valentines Day Night In. I don't like go out with my wife in the VD. Instead, have a quite evening in the house.

Valentines Day Night In is only ideal for those couples who lived together. This is really a very romantic way of showing how much you love your partner by setting up the mood on the entire house with rose petals, candles, banners, and stuff with a very romantic dinner and music which will really turn your night an unforgettable night. If you don't live together with your partner, I suggest to pick her up to her house with tons of gifts like roses and chocolates and teddy bear and then go to a very fancy restaurant and order a very nice meal and also have a musician that's serenading your woman so you both have a romantic night which is truly memorable. No matter what you do or how you set up your date, it will always be memorable for your date, even on simple things. I'm sure she'll appreciate that.
