February 14 can be a very sweet day for lovers, and you want to make it memorable, but how can you celebrate amidst a pandemic that won’t quit?
Take a Painting Class
Studies show that when couples do activities, like taking a painting class together, their bodies release more oxytocin, which is linked to heightened empathy and generosity.
Use an App to Stargaze
Put on your warmest gear, bust out a blanket and take some time to admire the universe with the help of the mobile apps, which will show you what constellations you’re looking at.
Make a Vision Board
Carve out time to focus on what you both want for your future. Try making a collaborative vision board. You’ll be surprised by how much fun the process is, plus you’ll get to know your partner more deeply and have a chance to discuss your shared goals.
Have a Cook-Off
If staying home is necessary, consider a fun and interactive cooking experience. Try a “cook-off”—you each make a dish, then fill out scorecards to determine whose flavors come out best. Or bring the show Chopped to life. Give each other a mystery basket of ingredients and see what your partner can whip up.
Stream a Virtual Concert
After you finish making a Valentine’s Day playlist for each other, take date night to the next level with a local concert. If your music venues are closed, consider a virtual concert instead: Josh Groban and Air Supply have both announced a special livestream concert on Valentine’s Day.
