It’s no secret that coming up with Valentine’s day ideas can sometimes be tricky. To make matters worse, this Valentine’s Day is happening during the COVID-19 pandemic. While this Valentine’s Day may look different than usual, there are still plenty of ways to make your Valentine’s Day special (and safe!) for you and your significant other. Here are five fun, COVID-safe Valentine’s Day date ideas:
1. Virtual Concert
Many local music venues are still closed, but most artists now host livestream concerts for their fans. Choose a virtual concert for you and your significant other to tune into. Singing and dancing around your living room with your special someone makes for a great Valentine’s Day!
2. Virtual Cocktail Class
Have fun creating your own cocktails with some help from a virtual mixology class. Liquid Lab offers many interactive cocktail making classes that you can take from the comfort of your own home. Visit their site and choose a date and time for your date. Then, it’s time to let the V-Day fun begin!
3. Virtual Painting Class
You don’t need to have to be a great artist to have fun painting. You and your lover can turn this Valentine’s Day into a fun date night with some canvases, paint, and some paint brushes. Try painting pictures for each other or make some new paintings to decorate your apartment’s walls. Painting to Gogh is one of many organizations that offers virtual painting classes. Make sure you remember to order your painting kit ahead of time – shipping takes 2-5 days!
4. Backyard Camping
If you’re lucky enough to have a fairly large backyard space, pitch a tent, and spend the night outside with your sweetheart! Add some cute string lights, make your favorite cocktail or mocktail, and serve up some yummy snacks to make this a night that you and your partner will never forget. You evendownload a stargazing app and look for constellations together. So romantic!
5. Winter Picnic
If you live in an area with warm winters, pack up for a romantic picnic with your significant other! Make a charcuterie board and pick up your favorite wine to enjoy socially-distanced time together. With a little creativity and a delicious menu, this will be a date for the memory books!
Even though COVID-19 still looms over all of us, you can still enjoy a romantic, safe Valentine’s Day if you get creative and plan ahead. Try out one of these ideas for a Valentine’s Day that both you and your partner will love!
