It’s the season of love in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Fresh out of the Lunar New Year festivities and just before the famous Festivale, Animal Crossing: New Horizons celebrates Valentine’s Day. Although the game doesn’t do a huge song and dance on the event (Isabelle didn’t even tell me it was Valentine’s Day during his morning briefing), there are a few things players should make sure to do today.
Happy Valentine day! I sent everyone on the islands a little something to celebrate. Check your mailbox later, okay? pic.twitter.com/5ecLeDxmAi

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Valentine’s Day Articles
For players looking to collect as many different items and furniture as possible, Valentine’s Day has a few exclusive items to purchase for their collections. Players can pick up the Chocolate Hearts and Heart Shaped Bouquet seasonal items in-game. They’ve been available this month and are leaving the store today, so if you haven’t picked them up yet, time is running out. .
Animal Crossing: New Horizons Gifts for Valentine’s Day
One of the biggest surprises of the day for me was how full my mailbox was. When I loaded the game up on Sunday morning, I was expecting the usual Happy Home Academy grade and maybe a letter or two. I didn’t expect to be inundated with gifts from all my favorite villagers.
In total, I received seven letters from the villagers and one from Isabelle, each with a nice note and a gift. These seem to be the villagers I’ve spent the most time building friendship levels with. Unfortunately there was nothing special about the items, just a bunch of chocolate hearts and heart shaped bouquets, but it’s the idea that counts!
What’s next in New Horizons?
Tomorrow sees the start of the Festivale! PavÃ©, the party peacock, arrives on Player Island with the sole purpose of spreading the joy. Players can purchase a selection of Festivale reactions and items from the Nook’s store and collect feathers in exchange for dance moves with PavÃ©. Following this, a bunch of Super Mario themed items will hit Animal Crossing: New Horizons in March.
