Valentines Day In Lockdown 2021

Posted by Keri Wheatley on

Whether you'll be celebrating with your significant other or you're a single lady with the girls, Valentines Day does not need to be boring this year because of lockdown. We've come up with some creative and fun ways to be connected no matter the distance or isolation this lockdown poses on v-day this year.

Which one are you?
I'M A SINGLE LADY
I'M TAKEN
I'M TAKEN BUT APART DURING LOCKDOWN


SINGLE LADY

This day becomes Galentines Day for us lot! It's a time to celebrate the unbreakable friendships and the love for your sisters from other misters.

  1. Gift Exchange
    If you're doing this with your bestie, it's easy. Doing it with a group? Use a tool like drawnames.co.uk to do a random pick of who you'll be buying something for and set a price limit. Send something that will remind them of you or you of them, something fun, or something useful like one of our key pouches (check them out here!). You can then open them live on FaceTime or Zoom. We've got lots of gift ideas in our gift sections here!

  2. Cocktail Making
    Get on FaceTime, House Party or Zoom and get fun and make some cocktails together. Get creative and make each other laugh! Check out a great place to find some fun cocktails here!

  3. Baking Surprise
    Do the same as with our gift exchange idea to select your gal pal. Then, send them a box of stuff they will need and instructions for baking - the surprise is you won't tell them before hand what they're making! I'm sure they may work it our or they will be surprised at the end. If you're not local to each other, send them a shopping list! Take pictures for each other or video call at the end to see their results.

  4. Online Gamers
    Get in your loungewear (shop some here!), grab a bottle of wine, snacks and get on House Party together or play another game of your choice online. We've found a great website www.backyard.co which is like a fun game version of Zoom.

  5. Walk With Your Gal Pal
    In the UK we are legally still allowed to meet up with one other person for a social distanced walk. Get out, get some exercise and some fresh air together before selecting one of the above for some evening activities. Don't forget to wrap up warm! Check out our winter warmers essentials for those walks here.

I'M TAKEN

Lucky for us we're not a lone in this lockdown, but it can be quite stale being stuck inside with your loved one all-day everyday at the moment! Here are some ideas to celebrate your love for each other and do something a bit different to our daily lockdown schedule.

  1. Gift Exchange
    Set a limit and give each other a care package or a gift. Something that will remind them of you or you of them, something fun, or something useful. We've got lots of gift ideas in our gift sections for the ladies!

  2. Dinner & A Movie
    Get dressed up (check out some of our Valentines day worthy outfits here), order in dinner or cook together and set a date and time to have a proper date from home, followed by a movie and popcorn. Your partner can pick you up from your bedroom at 8pm sharp ;)

  3. Pizza Making
    Something more casual! Get your loungewear on (shop some here) and make some homemade pizzas together and share a bottle of wine.

  4. Camping
    If your outdoorsy and brave to brace the cold, why not get wrapped up and setup camp in your garden together? Toast some marshmallows, have some hot chocolate and cosy up under the stars.

  5. Gamers
    Get in your loungewear (shop some here!), grab a bottle of wine, snacks and get on his PlayStation or Xbox for a challenge. Or go old school and play a board game together. Maybe set up some romantic forfeits for the loser ;)

  6. Romantic Walk
    Go on a romantic walk together! Lockdown doesn't prevent us from exercising so take a nice romantic stroll. Don't forget to wrap up warm. We have some of our fav pieces below for the cold walks here!
