Chocolates, flowers, dinner, and dancing bring about memories of Valentine’s Days from the past. But this year, the day of love may look different. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many of us are spending Valentine’s Day at home. And while that might sound boring, it’s actually the perfect excuse to plan a special indoor date or family activity.
Here are 6 tips to celebrate with your loved ones.
- Make breakfast in bed
There’s no better way to start the day than with breakfast in bed. Put a tray together for your partner and don’t forget to include as many heart shaped food items as possible. It’s a simple way to say “I love you” before your partner even takes a sip of their coffee.
- Wear matching outfits.
The easiest way to make any holiday even more festive is by wearing matching outfits. Choose heart shirts that are so cute but really, any pink or red getups will do.
Make your home a romantic oasis by decking it out with sweet heart shaped items.
- Make a photo book.
Sure, a photo book makes a great Valentine’s Day gift. But putting one together also makes a great Valentine’s Day activity. Grab your sweetie and compile all your favorite photos. You’ll have so much fun reminiscing on your favorite memories.
- Plan a movie marathon.
Take a chill approach to Valentine’s Day this year. Instead of planning a ton of activities, plan an all-day movie marathon. The lineup can include the best romantic comedies and lots and lots of snacks.
- Send a Valentine cards and gift
If you can’t be with your sweetie in person this year, then you might as well send them something sweet through surprise gift delivery. Card-making is a great way to get crafty and creative. Pull out your art supplies and put together the most festive combinations of pink and red or anything else! This is a fun activity for kids and adults, and no matter what your relationship status, there’s always someone in your life who would appreciate it.
