So Valentine’s Day might look a bit different this year than we have seen in previous years but that doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate it in some shape or form so today I am sharing a few ideas for socially distanced ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
- Zoom Date
Let’s start with an obvious one but why not have a zoom date! Just because you cannot be together it does not mean that you can’t see your partner in some shape or form and a video chat is a great way to talk as you get to see one another and you can hear one another’s voices which can be super comforting.
- Write Letters
One of my favourite ideas is to write letters to one another! Writing letters is such a personal task as you can tailor it towards your recipient and there is nothing nicer than receiving a treat in the post especially if it’s a message from a loved one. Letters are also a great memento to keep and can remind you of this particular Valentines!
- Virtually watch a movie
Just because you cannot physically be together does not mean that you cannot do stuff together. Why not use a platform such as Teleparty (formerly Netflix Party) to watch a TV show or a movie together which is a familiar and comforting activity and is a great way to spend an afternoon / evening.
- Go for a walk (Rules permitting)
This activity could be subject to change depending on the current Covid restrictions when you are reading this article but if you are allowed you could physically see your partner from a distance and go on a walk together! Walks are a great activity to clear your mind anyway and talking to a loved one is another great stress reliever that lots of us are missing out on at the moment so if you are allowed to meet another person from a 2m distance outdoors then grab the opportunity for some exercise and get moving!
