Covid safe ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day for couples and singles

Whether you’re single, distance dating, or living with your partner in lockdown you can celebrate Valentine’s Day in style!

Alas, this year we won’t the going out for cocktails at the latest insta-worthy bar or having a fancy dinner at our neighbourhood restaurant but, if you follow our five top tips, you can still create a covid safe valentine’s Day to remember

1. Movie night

Whether you are planning a romantic date night or supporting your single Galentines through the evening, being in different houses doesn’t mean you can’t hang together and enjoy the same film. Try creating a watch party via your favourite chat platform, like Zoom. Alternatively, many streaming services will do this for you. Disney+ offers a ‘watch a film together’ option or Netflix Party, a Chrome extension, lets you watch videos with your friends and chat together at the same time.

2. The Virtual date

Drop a gift box over to your Valentine with all the ingredients for your favourite cocktail and a fancy dinner. You can cook up a storm together virtually by following the same recipe over Zoom. And of course, enjoy your creations by candlelight once you’re done!

3. Pamper time

Create a home spa – indulge in an extra-long soak with your favourite bath bomb, pour yourself a glass of wine and have some delicious chocolates to hand. Don’t forget a face mask.

4. Restaurant in a box

If you are foodie, local restaurants being closed doesn’t mean you can’t have a chef-prepared meal. Many places will deliver meal boxes where the prep has been done already, you just need to heat and eat. We recommend supporting your local independent establishments, but there are restaurants delivering nationally too. You could try…

  • Sri Lankan and South Indian-inspired kits from the restaurant Cash & Kari
  • Michelin-starred meals with a focus on seasonal, local products from The Black Swan
  • DIY pasta from Londonestaurant Padella (you can even listen to their Spotify playlist while you dine)

5. Write a love letter

There’s nothing quite like receiving a handwritten letter in the post. If you’re not sure what to write, start with your favourite memories and the reasons you love them. It’ll be a keepsake they will save for years to come. Love letters aren’t just reserved for life partners, give your bestie and boost by letting them know how much they mean to you too!
