5 Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day Staying Inside (For Everyone)

This year is a little different for obvious reasons, however that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Valentine’s day.  Remember that Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you need to be in a relationship to feel loved, you can celebrate this day with the people you care about like your family and friends or you can celebrate your independence as an individual.  Here is a list of ideas for you.

1.Have a surprise dinner ready with decorations

Everybody likes surprises, so why not cook a nice home meal, or even grab a pizza with roses, candles and soothing music.  An alternative could be a surprise breakfast ready with wine and cheese in the morning.  Be creative!

2. Watch a movie that makes you happy

Or marathon a journey of movie franchises like Star Wars or Harry Potter, or take it easy with a loved one to watch a ROM-COM (Romantic Comedy, if you've heard this for the first time) for a night in.  

3. Catch up with your friends or family … online

When was the last time you caught up with your family or friends?  Have a night in to catch up on Zoom or play an online muti-player game like Among Us.

4. Bond with an indoor activity together

Find ways to be creative with a loved one by following a recipe or playing trivia indoors with your family.  If you have a karaoke set, let it all out for fun.  Ultimately anything to keep the night alive.

5. Spoil Yourself!

From pampering yourself with a relaxing bath, reading a book in a cozy area to eating all the good chocolate you want!  Make plans so it doesn’t feel like a slow day.  You deserve a day to yourself, and you are worthy of everything and plenty of love.

Although Valentine’s Day isn’t the same as past years, take it as a day to acknowledge yourself and the ones you care about.  As a reminder it is important to love yourself before you can love anyone else.  Stay Safe!
