We believe in celebrating love all year round, but Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to kick things up a notch and do something thoughtful for the special person in your life. Even though we have to adjust our Valentine’s Day plans this year, the day won’t be any less special. Whether you’re planning a big surprise or a low-key celebration, these gift ideas and activities are sure to make a lasting impression.
For a virtual date night
If you’re spending V-Day apart from your significant other, there are plenty of ways to let sparks fly, even if it isn’t IRL. Organize a special date night where you both cook the same meal together over Zoom or Skype. On the menu: afternoon tea from Holts Cafe and a special Valentine’s platter from Tora for dinner. We can’t forget about dessert! No Valentine’s Day would be complete without some delicious macarons from Ladurée.
For celebrating with your BFF
Celebrating Galentine’s Day? Plan a rom-com movie marathon and queue up all your favourites. Your movie night checklist can include the following: a snack station (think chips, chocolate and candy), a cocktail (or mocktail!), face masks and matching PJs.
For a film-worthy surprise for your S.O.
If grand gestures are your thing, surprise your S.O. with a breakfast in bed served with a side of fresh flowers. If you’re planning a dinner for two at home, set the mood by hanging up indoor string lights. For a more playful date night, put together a scavenger hunt that ends with a surprise gift (jewellery is always a great idea).
For a cheap and cheerful surprise
It’s entirely possible to spoil your loved one without breaking the bank. Draw up a Pinterest-worthy bubble bath, complete with a bath tray, book, candles, fluffy bathrobe and slippers. Another thoughtful but budget-friendly gift idea is to frame a favourite vacation photo so you can relive the memories together.
For spoiling yourself
Self-love and self-care are just as important on Valentine’s Day. If you’re in the mood for a pampering session, a skincare set is just the thing to help you unwind and get glowing. Or, treat yourself to lingerie that makes you look and feel good, whether your style consists of delicate and lacy underslips, silky sets or bold bodysuits.
