10 Ways to Have a Sexy Valentine's at Home

   PRINT

This Valentine's Day, don't let having a new baby spoil the opportunity for romance! You don't even need to get a babysitter and go out for an overpriced meal. Instead, snuggle in with your favorite person at home and try out these suggestions for a sweet and sexy Valentine's date. Warning: some of these ideas might get your heart racing!

Put the Baby Down Early

This one is a bit of a wild card of course, but it's worth it to try to get the kids down early just this once. You want to maximize the time you have with your honey tonight!

Order In

You could make a fancy gourmet meal for your sweetie, but then you're stuck with a messy kitchen glaring at you when you should be relaxing together. Instead, press the easy button and order in some tasty take-out from your favorite local spot. You can set a proper table with candlelight and music if you like, or get comfy together eating from containers on the couch.

Make Dessert Together

Making homemade dessert together is far more rewarding than making dinner together—it's the sticky, sugary spoons to lick, and the fun of feeding it to each other once it's ready. We recommend chocolate, of course!

Really Talk

If you've been in new parent survival mode, chances are you haven't really talked to your partner since your baby arrived. Tonight, take a good look at each other, put away your phones, and getting gabbing. If you're finding it hard to find something to talk about besides the baby, break out your photos and flip through your favorite pictures of things you two have done together as a couple, preferably pre-baby.

Take a Bubble Bath Together

In the dead of winter, soaking together in the tub or soaping each other up in the shower is a sure way to get the blood flowing. Pick up some bubble bath in your favorite fragrance, and be sure to pepper your bathroom with candles to create an extra-sexy state.

Send Racy Texts

Maybe you've been feeling shy about sex since your baby arrived. Sending sexy texts is a perfect way for you to get out of your head and into the mood. Kick it off by shooting your partner a flirty hello, and continue from there. You can start before you're both at home, and then keep at it, building the tension maybe while you're just sitting right next to each other! Eventually you might even be able to say some of the sexy things you're typing out loud!

Be Funny

A good belly laugh together is just what your night needs to be successful—research has shown that couples who frequently laugh together have the most successful and long-lasting relationships. 

So do something that makes you both laugh. Maybe it's watching a favorite comedy or YouTube videos, or playing a board game, or dancing poorly in your living room. It's not always easy to manufacture fun, but if you can achieve some serious giggles on Valentine's Day, you're sure have a great night.

Break Out the Massage Oil

Settle in for a sweet massage from your love; your new mama bod deserves some serious finger finessing! And even more fun to receive is to give. Don't be surprised if all that massaging wakes up some nerves and emotions that may have been on a sleep-deprived hiatus!

Set the Mood

Tonight, it's time to swap the sweats for something a little sexier. Head to the bedroom to slip into whatever makes you feel amazing and beautiful, then stop by the bathroom for a quick hair and makeup check, maybe even a splash of perfume. You'll surprise your sweetie when you return more gorgeous than ever!

Turn In Early
