Love in Lockdown – 10 Ideas for Valentine’s Day Activities

10 Ideas for a Successful Valentine’s Day.

Over the past year, life has changed a lot, and things we used to take for granted have become uncertain. Couples are also facing more stress in their relationships, whether they’ve been forced apart by travel restrictions or are spending more time together because of stay-at-home orders. Either way, these stressors have created tension in many romantic relationships, but they also bring new opportunities to deepen emotional connections.

Ideas for having a romantic Valentine’s Day during the pandemic.

1. Write each other letters

In the age of social media, handwritten letters are becoming a lost art. Chances are, your partner would love to receive an authentic, heartfelt note sharing your feelings and the reasons you love them.

No chores today! Get a massage! Plan a weekend getaway! The possibilities are endless when you make a “coupon book” with fun and romantic favors your significant other can redeem throughout the year.
