Maybe you and your Valentine are not able to be in the same city for this Valentine’s Day – perhaps one of you has to work. Any scenario is possible, but it doesn’t have to put a damper on the day you two want to do something special for each other. Check out the following Valentine’s Day tips and tricks to show your loved one that you’re just as much about being with them, as they are about being with you.
• Substitute the old school mixtape with a playlist on Spotify! Include the songs that both of you love and anything that reminds you of them and vice versa. You can set it to be private, for just the two of you. The Valentine’s Day gift of good music can be used over and over in hundreds of different scenarios that will be deeply appreciated, and let’s be honest – it is very “Awww”- inspiring.
• If you are both busy, choose your own Valentine’s day and celebrate then (you can avoid all the other couples as well, which has its own particular appeal.)! You can even plan a trip to meet up and enjoy yourselves out of town for a completely different experience.
• Send your Valentine a romantic dinner from their favorite place – Seamless, Postmates, Grubhub and UberEats are glad to help out with this! Whether they are stuck at the office or you are, you can set the meal up in advance to make sure it is delivered on time. You’re sure to get a reply as soon as they receive it! If needed, have the meal delivered a few minutes after you both make it home so it is one less thing to worry about on a busy day.
• If you’re currently in an LDR, consider going to the movies in your respective locations. It will give you something to discuss when you talk later and be almost as much fun as if you were able to go together.
• Pre-record a scavenger hunt and make each item found part of a care package of their favorite things.
• If you’re buying flowers – only buy the refrigerated ones! They will last longer and be overall of better quality. If you don’t order from a florist, picking them up from a grocery or warehouse where they are kept cold is the best backup idea.
• Build anticipation for Valentine’s Day! Sure there are decorations everywhere already, but make it personal. Let your S.O. know to save a time slot or even the whole day for the two of you. Leave a few notes or drop a few hints whenever you can. Set a reservation at your favorite place, plan the date out together!
• Buy your Valentine a subscription to their favorite subscription box! They’ll be reminded of your consideration all year.
• If you spend all of your time out and about and really want to spend time alone at home with your Valentine and vice versa, set up a special evening at home. Even if you order in, even if you want a movie at home, set up a picnic or transform a space for a different feel to enjoy your time together in.
Valentine’s Day can be a lot of pressure if you are unprepared, but don’t worry about it! Go with your gut, you know your significant other, and all it takes is one kind thought that you can expand on. If you come up with something that you think others might like as well, let us know!
