Valentine's Day Date Night In Gift Basket Idea

I love turning a collection of ordinary things into a beautiful, meaningful gift by making a gift basket. This Valentine’s Day inspired gift basket was made with items from a dollar store, and I think it turned out so cute! I can’t wait to give it to my Mr. so we can enjoy a cozy evening IN this Valentine’s Day.

Let me show you how I made this “Date Night IN” in a Tin, and make sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to see tons more beautiful DIY ideas from my Canadian blogging friends for Valentine’s Day!

In this gift basket, I’ve included lots of things I thought my hubby and I would enjoy on Valentine’s evening. Like most of my gift baskets, I’ve compiled them all into my signature galvanized bucket for a rustic look.

There are slippers to keep our feet warm, a candle for a warm glow, some treats and heart-shaped bowls for a snack, and a gift card for us to order a movie online from home.

I spent about $45 on this gift basket, so I think that’s a great deal for a romantic date night IN! The trick to a pretty looking gift basket? Decide on a colour scheme and stick to it. For this gift basket, I choose to use black, red and gold. I even found some slippers at the dollar store in my colours!

  1. Such a great idea, Christina! We tend to stay home on Valentine’s Day, and I love the idea of getting cozy and watching a movie. It’s so much better than getting dressed up and braving the cold!

  2. Date night in is great if you want to spend some alone time with your partner, preparing valentine basket like this is really a good idea to amaze your partner with your creativity. Thanks for sharing!

  3. You are an artist! I love how you create it and considering the costs and the interest of the receiver is really important. I have been ordering through for years and haven’t tried making one for myself. I will definitely get your ideas, thank you!
