Valentine’s Day is now on the horizon and couples will be planning to make this a special time that will bring them closer together. In ordinary times, going out for a meal, going to a show or going to a spa are popular options, but there will be many that are hesitant about going out due to COVID-19. Hopefully, the situation will have improved by Valentine’s Day, but what are a few ideas for romantic activities for those that do not want to go out?
Breakfast in Bed
If you don’t feel like going out for breakfast, what better way to start Valentine’s Day than breakfast in bed with your partner? There is something indulgent about a delicious breakfast in bed and it should get the day off to a great start. Coffee/tea and pastries are hard to beat (just be careful with crumbs!) or you could treat your partner to a cooked breakfast with small touches like shaping friend eggs into a heart.
On Valentine’s Day, you want to have fun and spend quality time with your partner. To make the evening special while staying in, you could arrange a games night where you play a few different board games. If you have kids, you could even get them involved as well. There are always games to play whether it is a classic board game like Monopoly or a card game like Uno. You can make your game’s evening that little bit more special with cocktails and tasty snacks.
Write Love Letters
Did you know that 54% of Brits have received less than 5 letters in the last decadent 26% have not received any handwritten letters in this time? Buying a Valentine’s Day card from Card Factory and then filling it with a thoughtful handwritten letter allows you to share your feelings, create a stronger connection and have a token that your partner can cherish forever. Handwritten letters can make people feel happier, more connected and intimate with their partner and this is why it is a great Valentine’s Day activity.
Quiet Night In
It is hard to beat a quiet night in with your partner, but you will want to make it extra special for Valentine’s Day. You can do this by cooking a meal together, enjoying a few drinks and listening to music and by watching a romantic film. A report found that couples that went on monthly date nights were significantly more likely to stay together than those that rarely went out, but you can still enjoy the benefits of a date night and reinforce the importance of your relationship with a romantic night in.
Hopefully, this will give you a few ideas for ways to enjoy a romantic Valentine’s Day if you do not feel like going out to celebrate.
