Valentine’s day is right around the corner. But with the UK and most of the world is still handling lockdown procedures amidst the pandemic, you may be wondering how to celebrate. Don’t worry! Just because many of the top hotspots and romantic destinations are closed doesn’t mean you can’t have an adventure at home.
Add Cocktails & Chocolate to Cinema Night
Movies make for a great date night. They’re even better with adult beverages. Don’t dress up for this movie night.
Instead, turn the heat up or throw a log or two in the fireplace and slip into something sexy. Move the couch out of the way and place soft blankets and pillows in front of the TV. Prepare your favourite cocktails, turn out the lights, and watch the show.
For intermission, get a refill and add some sensual dark chocolate to the mix.
Dress to the Nines for a Romantic Dinner at Home
When was the last time you bought new clothes for a night on the town? It’s probably been a while. Dress up for this Valentine’s Day. Women, wear that little black dress. Put on makeup, style your hair, and splash on some of your favourite perfume.
Men, rent a tux. The small rental shops will appreciate the business. If you can’t get a tuxedo, put on your best suit, and don’t skip the tie, dress socks, and leather shoes. Also, grab flowers.
Set the mood with some slow tunes, light the candles and turn down the lights, and begin with a glass of wine or champagne. After dinner, dance the night away without leaving the room.
Attend a Virtual Show
Are you dreaming of the days when you can take in a concert or see your favourite comedian live? An incredible Valentine’s date can include a live virtual show. Sure, it’s not exactly what you’re looking for, but it’s a close runner up. Consider a local option that gives back to your community. They’re often low cost and support a good cause.
Other virtual events that can add a little socialization to your Valentine’s Day include:
- Wine tasting
- Valentine’s cocktail making class
- Digital murder mystery
- Wine & painting classes for couples
Make it a Day & Start with Breakfast in Bed
Who says you need to celebrate Valentine’s at night? Start the day with breakfast in bed. Let your significant other sleep in and surprise them with hot coffee and their favourite morning meal. Take it to the next level and make Valentine’s a full day celebration. Have a picnic lunch on your living room floor, and finish up with dinner delivered from a loved local pub, and skip the extra pile of dishes.
With a little creativity, there are many ways to have an evening at home that’s fun, unique, and romantic. Enjoy this year’s unusual Valentine’s Day. Next year you may find yourself missing quiet nights with your honey in the comfort of your own home.
