The pandemic has put a strain on every relationship and with restaurants and bars closed as a result of the third lockdown, it’s looking ever more likely that we’ll have to stay safely at home this February 14th. But, that’s not to say that the celebrations can’t continue at home..and after all, special occasions like this one are all we have to look forward to right now.
So, how can you spend your Valentine’s Day at home in a wintry lockdown?
Whether over a Zoom call or at home with a loved one, this twist on the iconic TV show will let you see how well your partner really know’s you. Grab some paddles, get your questions from Google and you’re good to go. This also works very well as a double date..
2. AT-HOME BAR CRAWL
Why not bring the pub to you? We suggest picking a different theme for each room in your house and have a different drink waiting for you in each of them. Who fancies a cocktail in the conservatory, or some bubbles in the bathroom?
If you’re spending Valentine’s Day virtually, there’s no reason to miss out. Set up the same themed rooms in both of your houses and move around together whilst on a Zoom call.
3. COME DINE WITH ME
No doubt you’ve seen the well-known TV show Come Dine With Me where they cook a three-course dinner and rate each others cooking? Why not take it in turns to choose and cook alternate courses, then rate each other’s.. if you dare.
If a virtual date is your only option then you could both cook a meal together over Zoom and sit down together to enjoy it.
4. COUPLES GAMES NIGHT
Board games are a classic bit of entertainment and with a bit of planning, they can even be executed well over a Zoom call. Dust of the board games and have some good, old-fashioned fun together.
5. VIRTUAL COCKTAIL MAKING CLASSES
We’re all missing a good night out with a few cocktails, so why not bring the cocktails home? Gather a variety of favourite cocktail recipes, send the list of ingredients to those involved and jump on a Zoom call to virtually make and shake them together. This one is perfect if you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day instead and bonus, you won’t have to pay for the taxi home!
