Celebrating Valentine’s Day

Celebrating Valentine’s Day is all about sharing the love, no matter if you’re in a relationship or not. You can celebrate with friends, your family and if you do have a partner, then them too!

Celebrating Valentine’s Day is all about sharing the love, no matter if you’re in a relationship or not. You can celebrate with friends, your family and if you do have a partner, then them too!

We’ve got some of the best ‘lockdown friendly’ ways of celebrating Valentine’s Day this year with the people you love! 

  • Cinema Night– bring the cinema to you, the snacks, drinks, low lighting, and if you want to go the extra mile you could even make tickets! Soppy we know. 
  • A Takeaway with a twist– A new craze is taking off on the internet, where friends or families who don’t live together choose each other’s takeaway and get it delivered to their house. Sounds like a great idea to us, let’s hope whoever is ordering for you is kind! 
  • Home Date– Most couples go out on a ‘date’ for Valentine’s Day, but with local restrictions, this isn’t possible. So why not organise a date night at home, cook your favourite meal, get a few drinks, set up a table and dress up like you’re going out. It has all of the elements of a good date, but you don’t need to leave the house! 
  • A Valentine’s Quiz– We know, we know, you are done with quizzes. However, this is a great opportunity to catch up with family, have some fun, get dressed up and just share some love. 
  • Make Cocktails– Why not make this year a special Valentine’s and make some delicious cocktails with your friends, your other half or even your mum! Check out some great recipes here- https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/collection/easy-cocktail-recipes
  • Get Cooking– Making a meal for someone you love is a great way of showing you care, you may not be Gordon Ramsay, however, cooking for someone is all about the effort. 
  • Appreciation/ Love Jar– You may not be the most romantic or expressive person, but putting your feelings into a jar is a great way to communicate these feelings. The recipient can open a note each day or whenever they wish and hear some kind words from you. 
  • Pamper session– You probably rarely get a chance to sit and relax together, with either your siblings or your other half,  for more than 10 minutes. Get a few face masks, foot masks, something to drink and some snacks, as much as some people say a spa isn’t for them, an at-home spa is a great alternative. 
  • Buy someone a coffee– When you’re out buying your next coffee, ask if you can pay for the next persons coffee, or if they have a donation programme in place, use this, it will really put a smile on someone’s face. This is a great way to spread the love beyond those who you know. 
  • Sweet Treats– Now, everyone needs food and everyone loves food. You could bake brownies, a cake, apple pie, lemon biscuits, or if you’re not one for cooking, just buy some (we won’t tell anyone).
