Valentine’s day is just around the corner and it’s sure to feel a little bit different this year with a national lockdown in place. It might feel like a Valentine’s day in lockdown won’t be as special as normal, but there’s no reason that it can’t be just as good, if not better than every other year!
A Valentine’s day at home can be the perfect way to create a truly intimate and romantic date. We’re in luck this year as Valentine’s 2021 is set to fall on a Sunday, allowing for lots of creative and romantic ways to celebrate Valentine’s day at home.
Read on to explore our list of things to do on Valentine’s day this year to create the perfect Valentine’s at home.
1. Make her breakfast in bed
Take advantage of Valentine’s day 2021 falling on a Sunday and surprise her with breakfast in bed. Enjoy a super lazy Sunday in bed and start it off with her favourite breakfast. Whether that’s with a large stack of beautifully fluffy pancakes or a bowl of porridge. She’s sure to love the surprise and the effort you’ve gone to. This is the perfect time to exchange gifts as well!
2. Cook a romantic meal together
Why not go crazy and buy all of the ingredients for your favourite meals and spend the night together in the kitchen cooking? Whilst you may have done lots of cooking together during lockdown, make this special by cooking something fun that you can enjoy together. Making your own pizzas is always fun and (usually) tastes 100x better than ordering from your local takeaway.
3. Surprise her with a 3 course meal
4. Have a cinema night at home
Looking for something romantic but not too over complicated? Create a comfy set-up in your living room, get stocked up on your favourite cinema snacks, light the fire and settle in for the night with your favourite films. This is the perfect option for anyone who’s scared of the kitchen!
5. Have a cocktail night
The most important thing to remember when planning a Valentine’s day date for you and your partner is to make sure it is perfectly suited to you both. If the Valentine’s ideas we’ve covered aren’t your thing, why not plan a lovely long walk in your area and take along some hot drinks to keep yourselves nice and cosy. Or maybe this year just take it easy and treat Valentine’s day like every other day of the year, lockdown is the perfect excuse for deviating from your usual routines!
