For many, Valentine’s traditions may have to be adapted to fit lockdown this year, but that doesn’t mean that your plans have to be written off completely. Valentine’s Day is arguably already the most tricky holiday that we celebrate – and if you are someone that chooses to embark on the romance that is V Day, your favourite date spots are probably closed. Whether you’re going to celebrate romantically with your partner, or you have a fun ‘Galentines’ scheduled with your roommate, we have generated a fabulous list of fun ideas that would make Cupid proud!
Takeaway and a bottle of wine
Dry January is over – so wine away! You just can’t beat a takeaway – and you could use this opportunity to try somewhere new. Lots of restaurants that didn’t previously do takeaway have adapted to lockdown conditions and now offer this. You’ll be supporting a local business as well as indulging in a delicious dinner, complimented with your favourite vino. You could even match a regional wine with the cuisine – to make the experience all that more authentic!
Live cocktail classes
Lots of local bars and restaurants have conjured unique new ideas in the current climate. Some places are offering cocktail classes from home. You’ll have to do a little digging online – but usually, the bar or restaurant will send you a box of everything you need to join in on the class. This is a fun option where you can learn a new skill in the process – and memorise delicious cocktail recipes to use whenever you fancy!
Murder mystery at home
There are plenty of kits to order online for this – and it’s something totally different and fun! It will definitely stand out from any other Valentines Day’s that you’ve had with its uniqueness and will make for a great lockdown memory.
Make your own popcorn – and all your other favourite cinema treats to make it feel authentic. You could order in some takeaway dessert for a sweet treat. Turn the lights off, and maybe even set showtimes of your movie line-up. Will you opt for something romantic and smushy – or something to scare your socks off?!
Bottomless brunch in bed
How do you like your eggs in the morning? Get hold of all your favourite breakfast bits – whether you order some from local brunch spot – or do a supermarket run. This is a lovely way to start the day and will give you the feeling of being in a hotel or on holiday. Compliment the tasty food with strawberries, orange juice and delicious coffee.
