As a qualified dating and relationship and matchmaker Valentine's day is a very important day in our calendar.
Less than ideal circumstances doesn’t have to mean less than ideal celebrations this Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking to make the most of this lovely holiday during lockdown, we’ve got plenty of great ideas to help you celebrate with your partner this year.
Whether you’re quarantining together or experiencing a long-distance lockdown, these ideas will make it easy for you to spend dedicated time together, enjoy a romantic evening, and connect to celebrate your relationship and the love you share.
- Bring The Bubbly
Every romantic occasion calls for a bottle (or two) of your favourite champagne. If you’re celebrating at a distance, you can each bring your favourite bottle and share a virtual toast to your favourite things about each other.
- Let’s Talk Love Languages
Spice up the conversation on Valentine’s Day by chatting through the details of your love languages. It’s never a bad idea to refresh each other’s memory of how you want to be loved and how you like to express love. Take a moment to do one thing for each other that satisfies their love language.
- Savour Your Favourite Foods
Enjoy a meal together from your favourite local restaurant or spend time in the kitchen cooking up a new recipe. This will keep you away from your phones, help you work together, and make the meal that much more delicious since it was made with love.
- Movie Swaps
Each of you can choose your favourite movie to enjoy together. Celebrating at a distance? Check out watch party to watch the same thing at the same time with your partner. Choose your movie wisely! Look for something that will be a great conversation starter and sprinkle some romance into the night.
- Enjoy Me-Time
Maybe you’ve been in lockdown together for so long, the most romantic way to spend an evening is with a little bit of me-time. Dedicate a few hours apart to enjoy some self care before reuniting for a nice glass of bubbly and dessert. This will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed, and romanced.
6. Self Care Spa Night
While we can’t make plans to get out of the house and pamper ourselves at the spa, you can make the most of an at-home date night by gathering all of your favourite self-care items to have a spa night from the couch. Face masks, massage oil, relaxing music, cosy pyjamas, and of course, champagne - the perfect combination for a fun and romantic evening.
At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you find time to celebrate the love you share together. Scheduling time for connection and celebration in the midst of a crazy few months is a great way to strengthen the foundation of your relationship and take a much needed break from the chaos.
Happy Valentine's Love Lisa x
