Don’t fret – romance is still most definitely still on the cards this year. Not even lockdown can stop you, Casanova.
We get that it’s hard to spark some fun and romance into Valentine’s Day this year. Although spontaneity might feel impossible right now, if nothing else, lockdown has certainly made the nation more creative.
Even if you’ve been stuck at home for what feels like forever, you can still make this Valentine’s Day special for you and your loved one. In fact, we’re all beginning to get a bit more used to making something fancy out of lockdown celebrations, by turning them into a clever at-home version instead.
Alternative celebrations have been the norm this year, and just because they aren’t what they’d normally be, that doesn’t mean they can’t be fun.
This year, restaurant bookings and drinks in a bar won’t be on the agenda, but you can still celebrate the sentiment of the occasion, and bring this level of loved-up glamour to your home. With this in mind, we’ve come up with our top three little tips to make Valentine’s Day 2021 romantic.
So, our top tips for a special at-home Valentine’s are as follows.
Since you can’t go out, bring the romance in.
Switch up the standard routine by thinking of a fun way that you can decorate your home for your evening in together. It might sound a little goofy, but don’t be embarrassed to go all out. After all, it’ll certainly make the occasion a memorable one!
This could be with little touches like candles, banners or flowers. It sounds small, but making your space feel a bit different is a great way to mark the occasion.
Turn off the TV.
We’ve all spent countless evenings sitting on the sofa and zoning-out in front of the TV, so even if it’s just for a couple of hours, try to bring something different to your Valentine’s evening.
You could play a game, have a chat over an extended dinner, or treat yourself to a luxurious bit of at-home wine tasting. Our Valentine drinks can certainly help with that last idea (but we’ll tell you more about that later).
