Whether you’re living with your significant other or living apart, here are some romantic ideas for you both – to make your lockdown Valentine’s Day special.
Romantic Ideas for those who live together
Cook a romantic dinner
Now’s is your chance to be Gordon Ramsay or Nigella Lawson…
Look, even if it doesn’t taste as good, you’ll have a laugh – and may even surprise yourself!
Create a spa experience at home
If you can’t go to the Four Seasons, why not bring it to you? Those oils are essential for setting a romantic mood… Dim the lights and just relax.
You could even go as far as giving each other actual massages (keeping things PG)! Pop a relaxing playlist on in the background to really transport yourselves to Zentropolis. 🧖♀️ 🧖🏼♂️
Turn your living room into a dance floor
Love to dance? Kick your slippers off, put the music on blast and have yourselves a boogie… 💃🏼 🕺🏻
Cuddle up and watch a movie
Sort of like Netflix and chill – but where you actually watch Netflix and chill out on the sofa with a blanket and some hot cocoa.
Very little is better than a cosy night in, if you ask me!
Board games, video games, ‘How Well Do You Know Your Partner/Spouse?’ games – literally all the games, play them together. If you win, well done. If you don’t, you let them – it’s fine! 😉
Take a trip round the world without leaving your house
I can’t decide whether this is cute or just torture (and a sure-fire way of giving ourselves FOMO)…
If streaming footage of an exotic location isn’t your thing, you can just do themed nights – like Italian wine tasting etc. Order all you’ll need in advance and set it up on the day!
Set up a treasure hunt around the house for each other
Plant little gifts around the house and go in search of them together. Sort of like an Easter Egg hunt, but for two adults celebrating the cherub with an arrow (aka St Valentine).
Create art together
This one’s pretty fun, like all before it, basically: get arty and creative! Draw or paint each other, do what you have to do… If they’re good, why not frame them to look back on?
Romantic ideas for those who are dating but live separately
Have the same food or similar delivered
Lay the table, and make your laptop the centrepiece as you Zoom each each other. Pop a candle on there for extra romance vibes…
Cook/bake together on video
Cook or bake together on Zoom and then eat what you make. What’s the worst that can happen!? Honestly, I’ve done this before and it’s a right laugh!
Watch the same boxset/film
Crack open a bottle as you video chat
Start off with a glass of wine, and finish off with a coffee…
Let’s be honest, dating in lockdown is far from ideal – but it’s the only thing we have right now… It sure will make us appreciate the time we’ll be making up for post-lockdown.
