Valentine’s Day in 2021 during Lockdown might sound depressing to you. But don’t despair. We got some fun ideas for you in this article!
As we are living in the time of the global pandemic, you might or might not be in a lockdown right now! So spending time at home, with restaurants, hotels, bars and clubs closed, you are probably thinking, what is there left to do?!
Well, let us assure you. There are many wonderful things you can do to make this Sunday Valentine’s Day in 2021 during Lockdown a very special day!
However, remember this day is the day for you to do something selfless. To shower your loved ones with kisses, hugs and all the attention. Help or do something nice for a friend or family. To act with love!
Nonetheless, our tips can apply to you even if you are not currently living in the lockdown, and just want spend some quality alone time with your loved ones.
Have a lazy morning
Ok it’s not every year that Valentines come on a Sunday. And definitely never on a Sunday in a lockdown situation! So if you are home alone or with your love, your partner, your better half, this is the day to pamper yourselves. There is no rush, no need to do anything today. Turn off the alarm, sleep late. Take a slow morning, lie in bed till noon. Talk, cuddle, kiss, tickle each other or just go with the flow. They say morning is the best time for “you” time, so make it special and do what you want!
Take a shower or a bath together
What is more romantic than spending a nice sexy shower or bath time together? Go all out and decorate your bathroom with romantic flowers and all the candles you have lying around the house. Add bubbles, chocolates and two glasses of nice wine doesn’t hurt as well, if you are having a romantic bath!
Prepare a special breakfast
Prepare to cook for her or him, if that is what you usually do not do. Eggs on a toast with avocado are pretty simple to do, yet sophisticated enough to impress your loved one. If cooking is not your thing, give it a try. You can always follow a recipe over a video or blog. Or on the other hand share responsibilities and have a romantic time in the kitchen together!
Have things delivered to your home
Not only food, but also cocktails, sweets, flowers, gift boxes, balloons and much more! In this day and age, you can have almost anything delivered to your home! Yes, you can order also the fancy breakfast in the morning! Why not? You can even order in advance, to have special deliveries at a specific time!
Surprise him/her with a special gift
If delivery is not something that you can or want to do, take a short walk to a local florist, bakery, boutique shop and arrange for a special, unique gift. Jewellery and diamonds are of course always welcome, but not necessary. Box of chocolates will do just fine. On the other hand, simply pick some flowers from your garden if you can. Or if nothing else is an option, you can always surprise your lover with a sexy gift-wrapped YOU on the bed.
Do something you usually don’t do for valentine’s day in 2021 during lockdown
Do something different and exciting! No need to treat it like any other day! Have a lovely dinner together with a special table setting and a fancy bottle of wine! Cook together at home or order in, if you almost never do. Writhe him/her a song, draw a portrait, bake a cake or bbq on your porch or balcony. Spend the night by the fireplace if possible, together with chocolate covered strawberries or fruits and some movie time! Surprise her in an unexpected way! Play a game with him if that is what he loves or arrange for a strip poker/card game! Make it interesting!
Create a “mix tape” of LOVE
Remember the days of mixed love tapes? Nonetheless, if you are younger than that, surely you have seen in some movies where our hero wants to express his/hers feelings by making their love a mixed tape of all the love songs. Well, tapes might be tricky to get these days, therefore, you can easily make them a Spotify list of your favourite love songs!
And we are already listening and loving it!
For this valentine’s day in 2021 during lockdown, hire a pro!
Are you thinking of having a special celebration, learning a new skill together or doing something new, which you think cannot do on your own? Remember, you can always hire a pro! These days if you can think of it, it probably exists! And since 2020 was probably the most difficult year for all wedding and event professionals, many have started offering online classes, virtual guides and also specialising in home events! Maybe hire a photographer or a whole team for a special Valentine’s day session! To preserve the moments of love forever! So wherever in the world you are, surely there is someone you can hire to help you out with your home event! And with that, you will be supporting your local business during these difficult times!
