When Valentine’s Day arrives and you are in a long-distance relationship, you have two choices: You may either sulk all day or make the best of it by celebrating from a distance. Recommendation from us? this last. Even while being apart from your partner on this day is unpleasant, it doesn’t have to be a day you dread. In fact, it may be a day you really look forward to if you make the effort to make it particularly special with your partner. In the end, what matters most is how you choose to prioritize your relationship, keep the fire burning, and demonstrate to your partner how much you care about them. Therefore, we are presenting six ways you can spend Valentine’s Day in a long-distance relationship, regardless of whether your V-Day vibe is having a glass of wine and talking on FaceTime or spicing things up a bit in the bedroom.
1. Send A Sweet Treat
A box of goodies, whether it be candies, cookies, brownies, chocolate-covered strawberries, or the traditional Valentine’s Day treat of chocolate in a heart-shaped box, is one of the best ways to express “I’m thinking of you on Valentine’s Day.” Think a few days ahead and get something online that will arrive in time for your lover to enjoy on the day off because you can’t be there to personally present them. Delivery across the nation is available from businesses including Milk Bar, Crumbl Cookies, Nowhere Bakery, Baked By Melissa, and Edible Arrangements, among others. Even though it is more of a general gesture for this holiday, it is always appreciated.
2. Enjoy A Joint Movie.
The capacity to view a movie or a show concurrently with someone in a separate household is one of the coolest effects of the pandemic. I’m not referring to being a few seconds off from the other person while saying “click play on three,” either. I’m referring to Teleparty, a browser extension that enables you to watch movies simultaneously with a long-distance special on Netflix, YouTube, HBO, Disney+, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video. Together, organise a Teleparty with your sig-co, pick up some snacks, and watch a cheesy romance movie. My recommendation: Reese Wither-spoon and Ashton Kutcher star in the new Valentine’s Day film Your Place or Mine on Netflix.
3. Virtually Pair Various Wines Together.
In my opinion, Valentine’s Day is synonymous with wine, even if you prefer non-alcoholic varieties. Create the experience with a friend online rather than going on a wine tour or tasting! Here is how we suggest carrying this out: Have your companion select a bottle of wine that they want to try. After that, go to the store and purchase both. Schedule a time for your online tasting, make some nibbles for yourself (namely, a charcuterie board), and dress nicely! Even though you’re far away, you may still make this a memorable mini-date occasion.
4. Attend An Online Cooking Class
A romantic cookery class was mentioned? What about a dating night where you paint? You don’t have to live in the same state or even the same room to sign up for classes, which is the ideal approach to strengthen your relationship with your spouse. Services like Sur La Table provide workshops that will take you to the most romantic destinations in the world, like Paris or Tuscany, through food and skill. But you can enroll in a mixology class or a paint night if you’d rather have takeout. When you live far from your spouse, it might be challenging to establish memories, but these programmes make sharing a novel experience simple and fun.
5. Plan Your Upcoming In-Person Date.
We are aware of the challenges of being in a long-distance relationship, particularly when it is uncertain when you will next see each other. However, having a future event to anticipate helps the days pass more quickly. Plan to spend Valentine’s Day discussing when you two can get together again. Maybe you’ll meet each other at a brand-new location or one of you will travel to the other. Make a list of the kinds of things you’ll do together, look up bars and restaurants you want to try, and more. The greatest way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your long-distance partner, in my opinion, is to get all the corny and giddy sensations thinking about being together soon and how much fun it will be.
Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, so if you’ve already started coming up with gift suggestions, you’re in good shape. However, if you ask us, spending quality time with your spouse is the best gift you can give them. This list of Valentine’s Day activities is just what you need to make this year’s February 14 seem particularly memorable.
