Valentine’s Day is going to be so much different this year due to the global pandemic! Popular Valentine's Day activitieslike romantic trips away, fancy candlelit dinners, all have to be confined to a certain extent, no thanks to COVID-19.
Yet, it doesn't mean that you cannot enjoy Valentine's Day with the ones you love. February 14th is still an amazing opportunity to appreciate the little things in life and the people who have been with you through thick and thin.
Gossby is here with awesome V-day ideas to help you plan out the best love parties ever!
What could be better than starting a new day with a gentle head kiss and a breakfast in a bed filled with love? Remember to go big on those heart-shaped food items and drown them in your love. There’s no better way to say “I love you” through caring gestures and, of course, delicious food.
Here are some suggestions for V-day breakfast that you can try to show off your cooking skills: cheesy egg toast, red velvet pancake, peanut butter cookies, raspberry waffles, and everything you can cook with all your heart.
Don't forget to couple it with your partner's favorite drink in a pair of Valentine's day couple mugs!
A movie date night at the theater is no longer a wise choice during these times as you can be easily exposed to the pandemic. Instead, stay at the comfort of your home and enjoy a movie marathon with your partner and family.
What you need to do is to collect some blockbuster movies, stock up some tasty snacks, and a projector (if you want to turn your living space into a movie theatre).
V-day is the perfect time to remember the magical moments of how you guys first met and ended up happily together. How about recreating your first date and giving your partner a nice surprise during a lockdown?
Let’s unleash your creativity with this amazing idea! If you two spent a romantic date night in a fancy restaurant, why not recreate the menu and also the dishes in your kitchen?
Bumped into each other on a beach holiday trip? Print out beautiful photos of you guys taken together and bring back that fresh beach vibe right inside your home!
Or simply sit down and have a good conversation over a cup of coffee, recalling all those precious memories.
Don’t limit yourself and go big on this day to let your partner know you have fallen head over heels in love with them since the very first day!
Who could say no to a surprise gift on this holiday of love? Remember, Valentine’s Day is not all about expressing your love to your significant other; like boyfriends, girlfriends, fiances, or husbands and wives.
This day is also meant to celebrate and honor the love between family members and friends.
How about valentines day gifts for mom? A bouquet of roses, her favorite purse that she has been longing to own, or personalized Valentine's gifts will lighten up her day!
You have nothing but time this “lockdown” Valentine’s Day, so let’s spice things up by participating in some exciting online classes!
Cooking, dancing, singing, and even mixology are only some of many interesting themed virtual classes that you and your partner can join and learn something new. The best part is you can apply this new fresh knowledge immediately to your love plan - turn on some music and dance the night away or bake some sweet treats together. Isn’t that awesome?

If you are lucky enough to have a spacious backyard right outside your home, transform that space into your campfire night!
The prep is simple - get some string lights and hang them on, pull out super cozy and comfortable blankets, fill up your couple personalized mugs with irresistible hot drinks - hot chocolate, coffee, or mulled wine, start a roaring fire, and, of course, roast some marshmallows.
When the prep is done, you have had everything you need for an at-home backyard campfire. The remaining things to do are to enjoy the night in your loved one’s arms, do some stargazing, and share silly stories of the day.
Another great Valentine’s Day activity for couples to do at home during these social distancing times!
Believe us when we say this activity will bring couples closer together and strengthen their relationship. Grab your babe and bring out all the photos of your relationship, from food receipts, old movie tickets, traveling together pictures, and put them all into a scrapbook that you will both cherish forever!
Sounds pretty amazing and relaxing, doesn’t it? Let’s forget about work and hectic schedules to fully enjoy yourself on this special day because you deserve a good massage after all!
A common massage session often offers a massage, plus access to steam rooms, indoor pools, and hot tubs. However, during these sensitive times, luxury spas are not prioritized as their services may go over the budget for some people, and the chance of getting exposed to COVID is pretty high.
So, why not turn your home into a fancy spa and enjoy a chill and relaxing vibe? Take turns to give your partner a nice full-body massage or make things a little naughtier with a couples bath with candles, fragrant oils, and rose petals.
This idea is not only cheaper than spa services but also makes couples more intimate and comfortable around each other.
We know the feeling of adrenaline and excitement won’t remain the same when watching your favorite games via a TV screen.
Then there’s no time to wait and feel pathetic for yourself - put on your most comfortable pajamas, fill up dishes with delicious snacks - crispy chicken wings, cheesy fries, or crunchy nachos, pop up some beers, and play board games or whatever games you are both interested in!
Don’t be shy to cheer and have fun as loudly as possible (but not too much to bother your neighbors - or make them jealous!) to recreate the exciting vibe like in a stadium.
These fun games are perfect options to kill time as well as contribute greatly to couple contentment and marriage satisfaction, as proved by scientists.
If you are both sports and nature lovers, going hiking is such a wonderful option on Valentine’s Day!
Do you want to do something out of the ordinary with your significant other this year? Let’s go discover a new trail together and bring back more precious memories!
Health always comes first, so don’t forget to equip yourself with warm coats and necessary hiking equipment. You are bound to be amazed by gorgeous natural sceneries, fresh air, and the chance to indulge in a deeper conversation with your partner without any interruptions or distractions. It’s only you, me, and nature!
Besides, you can also prepare some light snacks such as sandwiches, chocolate cookies, fruit salad, or some hot drinks in custom couple mugs to enjoy a picnic lunch together.
