Top 5 Tips for the Best Valentine’s Day in 2021

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Ah, Valentine’s Day. A holiday dedicated to showing your appreciation for the most important person in your life. Whether that means showering your partner in flowers and chocolates or treating yourself to a candlelit bubble bath, it’s a day that can be made special regardless of your relationship status.

Because of the global pandemic that has swept the world in the past year, Valentine’s Day in 2021 is going to look a little different than holidays past. Does that mean it can’t still be an unforgettable day? Absolutely not!

 

Here are the top 5 tips for the best Valentine’s Day in 2021:

 

  1. Break out of your usual routine. After nearly a year of staying at home, many of us have developed routines that are tough to break. Valentine’s Day is all about devoting some time to nourishing your relationship, whether that’s with yourself or with a partner. Don’t just do the same thing you do every day or even the same thing you do each year on Valentine’s Day. Make this one different. If you’re on your own, have some flowers delivered to your doorstep and treat yourself to a spa night. If you’re with a partner, get a romantic new game the two of you can play together or have a living room dance party. Maybe check out online single/couple tarot card readings at our partner shop Talk of the Town. The point is, switch it up!

 

  1. Rearrange your space for the occasion. At this point, we have stayed at home for so long that our living room has turned multi-purpose. It now functions as a home office, a movie theatre, a school and even a mall—ahem, I know I’m not the only one who has spent countless hours on the couch surfing on Amazon. This Valentine’s Day, move things around so it feels like you’re somewhere new. Put out a new tablecloth, rearrange the furniture, hang up string lights, or while you’re picking up your favorite sauce get a fresh bouquet of flowers from your local Big Y for the kitchen table.

 

  1. Don’t forget about the small gestures. The little things don’t go unnoticed, especially on Valentine’s Day. Pay your loved one compliments, leave a sweet note on their pillow, treat them to breakfast in bed, or fix something broken. These are simple acts that don’t take much time, but will mean the world to your companion and make them feel special. Spending Valentine’s Day on your own? Treat yourself the way you would want someone else to! Redecorate your bedroom, remind yourself how awesome you are, and fix something in your home that needs fixing-OR just allow yourself to take a guilt free break.

 

  1. Choose a gift that can be used at home. With COVID-19 still at the forefront, many of us will continue to spend the majority of our time at home for a while. Consider surprising your special someone with a gift they can enjoy from the comfort of their own home. Whether it’s an at-home spa kit, a DIY art project, or a set of assorted gourmet hot sauces from Jay’s Wicked, this Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to give your loved one a gift they can enjoy from home.

 

  1. Make a romantic meal. While many restaurants have done a great job of enforcing social distancing guidelines, consider saving money and staying safe by making a romantic home-cooked meal for your loved one. It eliminates the hassle of trying to find a reservation and allows for a cozy and intimate evening. Check out these 40 Valentine’s Dinner Ideas to find the perfect recipe for your special night.
