Valentine's Day may be a little while yet, but seeing as most of us will be spending it inside this year, I thought I would share some of my ideas of what to do. I've personally started celebrating the month of love pretty early as I thought we all need a little extra love in our life at the moment, so I hope you enjoy this post and get some good ideas for the 14th too!
Remember a card and present
A gift and a card definitely isn't a necessity if you're celebrating Valentine's Day, you may choose to get one anyway. I always find edible gifts a good idea, but there's many other homemade gifts that would go down a treat. Think a jar full of date night ideas so neither of you ever have to think of one again or maybe put together a hamper full of their favourite things.
Of course there are more classic gift ideas like a Personalised Constellation Map or this adorable Space Themed Glass Message Bottle which I think are both adorable depending on the vibe you're going for.
Make a fort to watch a film
With restaurants being off the menu (excuse the pun!) this year, I think many of us will be turning to a takeaway and a film this year. Why not make it extra special by making a pillow and duvet forte with added fairy lights and decorations to snuggle up in to. Although pyjamas is definitely favoured, why not use it as an excuse to dress up as well - I know I will be in this Unique Vintage Red Off Shoulder Dress*.
Have a candle lit dinner (or takeaway!)
If fort aren't your forte (I'll stop now...), then why not go for the classic - a candle lit dinner! Pick your partners favourite meal to cook or takeaway to have and have a night away from your phone. I would personally through in a couple of games into a night like this for some quality time away together.
Think About Celebrating Galentine's Day
What's Galentine's Day? Only the best day of the year. Why not use the 13th to share the love a little. Check in on your friends, maybe bake them a cake or send them a card. Set up a zoom call and play a couple of games too!
Make Everything Heart Shaped
The simplest and probably favourite thing to do in the run up to Valentine's Day is make everything heart shaped. I think the supermarket have clocked onto this trend as many places do heart shaped pizza and even food like crumpets and pancakes. I definitely think doughnuts and waffles would look great too - can you sense a theme?
What are you doing this Valentine's Day?
