Don’t let COVID-19 keep you from having a fun romantic V-day with your quarantine bae.
Valentine’s Day is only a few days away and this year many of us will have to get extra creative! With the pandemic still in full effect, I wanted to share some thoughtful Valentine’s Day date ideas that you can still enjoy, while social distancing. Even if you are not spending a lot of money, there are so many ways to make your Valentine feel special and these are just a few.
Make your home a romantic oasis by decking it out with sweet heart-shaped items. We love this donut peg wall — treats + decor = double win! — but there are so many incredible DIY Valentines’ Day decorations that you can whip up in no time.
Make a charcuterie board.
There’s no better snack to nibble on all day than a charcuterie board. Add whichever treats you like, and don’t forget to pair your cheeses and jams with the perfect wines. Not a fan of cheese and crackers? Try a different type of charcuterie board, like one made with candy or desserts.
Get tickets for any virtual show you’ve been eyeing.
Thanks to the pandemic, lots of places are taking their performances virtual. Buy tickets to a virtual comedy show, a Broadway play, or anything else that peaks your interest. And yes, obviously use this as a reason to wear your favorite outfit as if you were going IRL anyway.
Dip everything in chocolate.
The problem with a fondue night is that when it is over, you are left with a fondue kit that will likely never get used again. That’s why these stoneware pots of Belgian chocolate are so genius. Heat them up in the microwave and dip away; no clean up or storage required.
Quiz yourselves for trivia night.
Perk up your Valentine’s Day dinner conversation by busting out this quiz book—it is always fun and surprising to learn new things about your partner. Or, organize a virtual date night and team up against other couples with virtual Jeopardy. Have everyone contribute to a winner’s pot to amp up the friendly competition.
Try a new love language.
Most people will tell you that there are five love languages: quality time, physical touch, gifts, words of affirmation, and acts of service. If you or your partner are physical touch type of people (but are not comfortable with it at the moment), consider focusing on the other ways to show you care. Gifts are always popular on Valentine’s Day, as are socially distanced dates for quality time. Words of affirmation can be very easy to give and acts of service could prove useful to your partner who may be going through a difficult time. In other words, try not to limit your day to physical intimacy, especially if you or your partner aren’t completely comfortable with it yet.
Bundle up in the backyard.
February might still be chilly, but make the most of it by dressing up in your warmest coats and building a fire. Bring out a bottle of good wine, toast some oversize marshmallows, play an outdoor game, and enjoy the outdoors during the time of year we are usually inside.
