Valentine’s Day, which is on February 14 each year, is always a special day for couples. For many couples, it is a chance to indulge and declare their love for each other. In 2021, Valentine’s Day could well look very different, especially if the COVID pandemic hasn’t dissipated. But fear not, there are some great ways you and your partner can get romantic.
Don’t break the bank
Buying Valentine’s Day gifts can be quite cliched and some guys may like to buy chocolates or flowers if they wish to play it safe. However, the Gift Experience Shop should provide inspiration or ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts for her. For example, the Gift Experience Shop stocks personalised picture frames which could be a great way to reflect on special memories with your other half.
Valentine’s Day 2021: The perfect getaway
While a Eurostar getaway to Paris may be the ideal way for some to spend Valentine’s Day, the pandemic could force you into a rethink. Instead, you could have a mini break closer to home. Some hotels will offer special deals, so keep an eye out for them and with Valentine’s Day 2021 falling on a Sunday, you can make a whole weekend out of it!
Cook up a storm in the kitchen for Valentine’s Day
While some may prefer to visit a sophisticated restaurant, you can still treat your loved one to a special meal. The Evening Standard has rounded up some of the best available deals from supermarkets. Of the most familiar will be Marks & Spencer and their dine in for two deals which usually include a starter, a main, one side, a box of chocolates and a bottle of Prosecco.
Keep it simple for Valentine’s Day
With Valentine’s Day, simplicity should be just as important as pulling out all the stops to make your partner feel loved. Indeed, you don’t even need to buy the most expensive bouquet of flowers to delight your partner. Instead, you could look to enjoy a shared activity, such as going for a hike or a long scenic walk which could be rather intimate.
Curl up with a nice movie for Valentine’s Day
Of course, getting the vibe right is essential for Valentine’s Day. If your thing is curling up with a great movie, then Men’s Health should give you some food for thought. Among the plethora of popular movies that may tug at the heartstrings is the iconic DiCaprio flick Titanic, while Dirty Dancing which stars Patrick Swayze is a timeless classic that will leave you in a great mood.
Spicing things up in the bedroom for Valentine’s Day
For many, Valentine’s Day is about keeping things fresh and exciting in the bedroom department. Some men may like to buy their partners sexy lingerie and there are no shortage of sites to buy from. For the budget conscious, Boux Avenue is a great site to check out. Thongs start at £6 and they offer a wide range of sizes too to suit everyone.
Alternatively, if you are looking for something more expensive, Victoria’s Secret should be on your list. Here, you will be able to get your hands on lingerie essentials, such as a satin and lace cami set which you can wear at home or team up with something on a night out. However, you should expect to spend at least £45.
