Valentine’s Day Movie Night Ideas

There’s nothing more romantic than spending an evening cuddling up to your special someone taking in a classic movie about love. Since Valentine’s Day this year is on a Saturday, you can make the entire day staying warm with your loved one, indulging in snacks and enjoying some classics.

Start with the movie selection – will the two of you prefer a more recent rom-com like Silver Linings Playbook or something a bit more classic such as When Harry Met Sally? No matter what you prefer, the research has already been done for you! put together this list of the best romantic comedies from the past century – starting from the 1930s all the way into our current decade. Pick a few from each to spice things up!

Next on the list: snacks. You already know what we’re going to say – a movie night calls for popcorn! We love the idea of getting creative with the popcorn tin like did here. They not only decorated one of our red popcorn tins with gold foil hearts, but also used the underside of the cover to play tic-tac-toe. Chic, simple, and SWEET!

Supplies for DIY Valentine’s Day Treat Bags

White paper bags
Scissors OR Exacto Knife
Festive tape
Clear snack bags

Directions for DIY Valentine’s Day Treat Bags

Start by either drawing or tracing a heart shape on the lower-middle part of your paper bag. When choosing the placement, make sure you will have enough room at the top to fold it over an inch or two at the end.


Then, use your scissors or exacto knife to cut out the shape. An exacto knife is more accurate if you are familiar with using it, but scissors will do the job as well. You want the heart shape to be cut out of both the front and the back of the bag.


Use your marker to write a fun message. Since we filled our with popcorn, we put a punny spin on it by writing, “You Make my <3 Pop!”


Now, the hard part is done! All you need to do now is fill your clear treat bags with your treats, place the clear bag inside the paper treat bags and seal! (This is where our red and white popcorn really came in handy). We used festive red and white washi tape to get the job done, but if you don’t have that laying around, feel free to use any kind of tape you do have.
