Because of the pandemic situation. But it does not mean less fun and less love. It only means that you there’s all the more reason to practice precaution. Ultimately, the goal is to spread love and show support to one another.
To help you make this Valentine’s Day memorable, we’ve curated five ways you can celebrate the special occasion during the pandemic. Check out what those Valentine’s Day ideas are.
Prepare a Romantic Dinner and Surprise Your Partner on Valentine’s Day
Put on your mask and gloves, and go grocery shopping! And prepare a home-cooked 5-course gourmet dinner for your loved one. It is not only healthy but also eliminates the risk of getting Covid from dining out in a restaurant. Or, you could order your groceries ahead of time and plan a pandemic-free cooking spree with your loved. You can spend some quality time together in the kitchen.
Treat Yourself with a Full-Body Spa at the Comfort of Your Home
Valentine’s Day is the day you should fall in love with yourself, again. If you live alone, this is the best time to treat yourself as your Valentine. Give yourself a full-body spa treatment at home. Run a bubble bath. Plan a healthy dinner for yourself or order in something special that you’ve been craving for. Put on the best clothes and groom yourself for a romantic night all by yourself and a bottle of red wine.
Organise a Games Night at Home for Your Kids on Valentine’s Day
With most kids nowadays spending their time within the four walls of the house attending online classes, they are missing out on a lot of fun. Hence, parents can try to make the day special form them too. Set up a treasure hunt for your kids or arrange for a board-game night. Or hold a competition among your kids. At the end of the day, don’t forget to reward them with sweet treats and Valentine’s Day gifts.
Rent Out a Holiday Home to Enjoy a Staycation Away from Home
If you have been waiting for a special day to enjoy a day away from home, let’s make it happen this Valentine’s Day. Your best option is renting a holiday home, an entire home to yourself. This way, you won’t have to stay at a hotel, where the risk of contracting Covid is high. Look for a house that has a large lawn and set up a mini camping site. Enjoy the night with some light music and lots of fun.
