However, you might have celebrated last year, this year, it’s a complete lone Valentine’s day. If you think about how to we celebrate this Valentine’s day… Alone? Either you should celebrate at all? Or just be with the person at home? Then you are at the right place to read on what all you should try and How to celebrate the missed-out valentine.
Here is the list of Valentine’s day activities to be creative and for someone who wants to do something creative. The following activities are for adults to play with their partner, kids who are completely into being creative, or a group of friends, or just you! How to celebrate the missed-out Valentine’s day with these creative ideas.
Let us start with Couples:
This Valentine you might be in a long-distance due to covid or quarantined together these might be the few of the ideas that would set the mood and do something special for your partner.
- A photo collage on a wall:
All that we need are Photos, Glue, Tape, and some lights. Select a wall on which you want to have the pictures. Be creative as to how you want those old memories to display. Going through those old memories would leave a huge smile on your partner. Or the best part, this activity can be done together, (I am sure, you would have some long yet amazing conversations while looking at those pictures)
- Remember and recreate your first date:
While you choose to be home instead of going out but want to experience the magic? Recreate your first date. Well, wants more magical than the first date, right?!! If your first date was in a resto then try cooking those dishes that you have ordered. You know, you can always work your way up for that magic.
- Sending gifts:
Sending gifts to your partner while you both cannot be with each other this Valentine. Chocolates, cards as they are the classics or some art of their choice.
- Spend some cozy time together:
Days these days are very stressful with work from home, which gives one an extra amount of work and stress. Take a day off from work and just be cozy with your partner. Might be as simple as, watching a movie together.
- Cooking your favorite dish together:
Challenge your partner to cook each other’s favorite dish. Youtube comes in very handy for this. Trying to impress your partner while cooking together is a different experience altogether.
How to celebrate missed-out Valentine’s day with kids:
- Game night:
How long it has been for kids without a proper game night? Well, having their game night in the name of Valentine’s day is a win-win situation for both parents and kids. While kids are busy playing virtual games with their friends online, you and your partner can have some time off kids!
- Making treats:
Well, Christmas and Valentine’s day is all about Treats. Why not include kids in making them. They would use up their creativity while doing so. And send a few to kid’s friends. This would excite kids to participate in making treats.
- Valentine art:
Let your kids be as creative as they want. Creativity and art get the best from kids. Some art that they want to gift to their friends or some art that they want to give to you. Let the creative minds do their work.
- A virtual get together with family:
As Valentine’s day is all about celebrating love, having a virtual get-together with family serves the purpose too! From having to meet everyone to kids having virtual games with cousins is a perfect playdate again.
- Having few friends over:
For kids having friends over means an amazing time with them. As it’s been a long that playdates have become rare due to covid. Inviting few friends would be an amazing time for them to have the Valentine play date.
How to celebrate the missed-out Valentine’s day: Yourself!
- Make yourself 1st:
2020 has been a year with stress and sometimes it was a year to connect to oneself. Make this Valentine’s day about the same. Make yourself a priority and self-care to be the most important.
- Have your favorite wakeup time:
Having to wake up whenever you want to or having a breakfast of your choice on your bed is a big deal! Say yes to breakfast in bed. Your favorites your bed and your time!
- Having fun dressing up:
As we are home most of the time, the comfort outfit is being in PJ’s. Get out of those PJ’s and dress up! try on different outfits that you haven’t tried in a while.
- Have a self-care day off:
Making self-care a priority is so important to feel good. Tell it out loud so that would sink in! now having a complete day off for yourself is a treat. Isn’t it? Well, for me hell yes!
- Online deals:
Now when you have your face pack on, why not check some amazing deals online for yourself. There might be something that you wanted for so long but kept on backstage to buy. Well, this is the time to treat yourself with that.
