“All you need is love…” – Who else just sang this phrase in their heads? Valentine’s day is right around the corner and no matter if you are single or in a relationship, we believe that this day should be for everyone! In our everyday lives, we tend to forget to show or tell the people we are closest to, how much they actually mean to us. Especially in times like these, where we only get to see a limited amount of people, we get even more excited to spend some quality time together. So right in time, we put together some great suggestions and ideas for a perfectly, corona-safe Valentine’s Day. Here it doesn’t matter if you are spending the day with your partner, a friend or family.
Alright Kaptens, since you and your favorite person definitely deserve to spend some quality time together, let’s take a look at our ideas:
1. Travel Dinner from Home
Don’t we all really miss traveling at the moment because of everything getting cancelled due to Corona? Well we thought, why don’t we bring those places home to us? With such a travel dinner you can simply create all kinds of different vacation feels right in your kitchen – from spanish tapas or paella to japanese Sushi or pad thai following a traditional Thai recipe up to French crème brûlée for dessert. You can be as creative as you like with this! You should probably plan a little in advance, so just figure out what you would like to make and get the ingredients for your meals. To get even more in the travel dinner spirit you can also decorate or even dress accordingly. And that is how you easily bring an “all around the world” feeling to you home.
2. Off to the Drive-in cinema
Do you guys miss movie nights with popcorn in front of a big screen as well? Then we have the perfect idea for you! With Corona, drive-in theaters are celebrating their comeback and isn’t that a romantic place to take your date? You can just check if there is one open near your city. Then all you need is some snacks, a cozy blanket, a car and you can enjoy the movie!
And for those of you who do not have a drive-in theater close by, you can just have a movie night at home and maybe even get a beamer for that. This way you can watch movies in the comfort of your home.
3. Virtual Museum Tour
Now you probably wonder: “how is a museum tour possible during Corona times?” Well we have a little secret to share with you here. Many famous museums offer online tours at the moment, like the Louvre in Paris, the Pergamonmuseum in Berlin or the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. If this has sparked your interest, you can check online if your favorite one is among those that offer online tours and start your “all around the world” museum excursion.
4. Treat yourself with a Spa day
Are you more of a calmer type and would like to de-stress with your favorite person? Then a spa day might be the perfect idea for you two! That means, turn off your phones and get ready for pure relaxation with hydrating face masks and some fresh fruits, so that you can have a very enjoyable and relaxing Valentine’s Day.
5. Mini adventure into the nature
At the moment, traveling and outdoor adventures are not really possible but why don’t you expand your daily stroll and discover some hidden local spots. Almost everywhere, there should be some nice nature walks or empty secret places that you haven’t explored yet! You can search for some trails in the forest which lead to an old castle ruin or even some sort of canyon. This way you can discover new places that are also not busy and outdoors.
We hope that we were able to inspire you with at least one of our ideas and that you are already starting to plan your perfect Valentine’s weekend.
