It’s the time of the year again when the cupids of the heavens descend. And shoot their aphrodisiacal arrows to unwitting couples. Valentine’s day is fast approaching. It’s your excuse to have love in the air and celebrate with your better half (or soon to be one).
But how do you do that as Remote workers? With the limited date ideas in the pandemic, how can you show off your love remotely or at home? We got you covered! Here are Valentine’s Day date ideas for remote workers.
Breakfast in Bed
Start your loving morning with breakfast in bed. Surprise your significant other with the best and the sweetest meal that represents your love for another.
It might not be the most elaborate meal. (Although, you can surely check these recipes out for some ideas.) But what matters is pampering your better half on the start of the heart’s day.
Breakfast is not your only option. You can recreate an indoor picnic at the comforts of your home. Transform a spot in your house where you can embellish it with flowers, cutleries, and a palette of your choice. Let it be as festive as you can to impress your valentine.
Candlelit dinner with romantic music. Spectacular entrées. Your loved one by your side. What more can you ask for? A romantic dinner date is a foolproof Valentine celebration you can plan on.
You can do this at home or at your favourite restaurant. It doesn’t need to be too expensive. Just relish the night with your special someone and celebrate your love with each other.
Attend Online Cooking Classes Together
What if you don’t know how to cook (or too lazy to prepare) and take-away is not an option? Well, you can make this to your advantage! Why not attend online cooking classes together?
Sign up for an online class and frolic while preparing your sumptuous Valentines meal together.
Strengthen your bonds with your loved one by playing games this Valentines. Let it be a fun night with so many games to choose from. You can try out a Trivia Night or Board Games. Or if you want something virtual, you can check out Pogo for multiplayer games.
Online Shopping Challenge
Don’t know what you want to give your significant other? Why not make it another game for Valentines! Do the online shopping game!
Open your favourite e-commerce website. And have a time limit and budget. For example, in 5 minutes, you should find something that your significant other might like per category. Categories can be like:
- something tasty
- something short
- something that reminds you of your first date
It doesn’t have to be expensive. Be as creative as possible and have fun buying things each other would love to keep.
Who says that you can’t get tired from working-from-home? For this Valentines, relax your senses with a Spa day with your hubby. You can set up a spa-like experience by doing body scrubs and soak in your hot tub (or make-shift one). Or you can massage each other to relieve the tension away. Or maybe build up more tension, if you know what I mean. *grins*
If you don’t know how to do this, you can hire a therapist for home service for both of you. Just make sure you are following sanitation guidelines to be safe from unwanted sickness.
You don’t need to have an extravagant date to show that you love each other. Sometimes, just lounging in your favourite pajamas and doing a movie marathon together is enough. Go on and enjoy cuddling while watching your favourite movie or series with your special someone.
Feel the love in the air while you are serenaded with soulful love songs by your favourite artists. You can now enjoy virtual concerts from your singers all over the world. And this can be the highlight of your Valentines with your special someone.
Set the mood with music and relish the moments while you celebrate your love on Valentines.
Hangout with Other Couples Online
The past few months have made us long for socialization. We haven’t met other people for a long time. For this Valentines, why not have a double date with another couple? You can have a zoom date with them or, if possible, meet them for dinner.
In this way, you can build friendships while strengthening your relationship together.
Book a Hotel
Some hotels are now open for leisure. With the proper health protocols, you can spend the night with your loved ones in a cozy luxurious hotel room. The change of environment is definitely soothing for some romancing.
Spend some respite from all your work-from-home activities. And enjoy each other’s company (in private) this Valentine’s day.
