The history of celebrating Valentine’s Day goes way before we were born. There is a fascinating story behind celebrating Valentine’s Day. According to historians, there was a Roman emperor named Claudius who ordered the execution of St. Valentine. Now, if you are wondering what this has to do with Valentine’s Day? Hold your horses, as we will get there soon! The only thing to keep in mind, for now, is Coronavirus still exists. We need to ensure the safety of ourselves and our loved ones. Accordingly, we would review some ideal approaches to observe Valentines’ Day with your accomplice during this Pandemic in this blog.

But how do you create a special and romantic Valentine's Day with your significant other when you’ve been stuck in the house with them for nearly a year? Or what if your very special someone doesn’t live with you and you don’t feel comfortable getting together at this time? Here are eight romantic ideas for Valentine’s Day during COVID-19 that include things to do indoors, outdoors with social distancing, and on a budget.

Make dinner together

Cook, grill or bake your comfort food. Convert your place into a restaurant/bar reserved only for you and your special someone. Maybe you can even try to be more daring and cook your favorite dish from your favorite restaurant. You can actually find a lot of imitation recipes on Pinterest if you’re interested. "Nothing sparks romance than being together in the kitchen cooking a favorite dish. Turn on some music, open a bottle of wine, and make sure to spoon-feed your loved one along the way,” Stephen Chavez, one half of the couple behind Latino Foodie, told

Watch a special movie together

This may be quite common but it never gets old. Smooching on the couch with your partner while watching romantic movies. 

To set a more romantic tone than your everyday series marathon, why not have some red wine to go along with it. If you want to make it a little more different, why not watch some classic movies from the era of Audrey Hepburn. There are reasons why a lot of people still watch these old films. In fact, these movies have a lot of dialogue that endured the test of time and sometimes even ended becoming as accepted love sayings.

Bring back that loving feeling

When life is stressful, it can be difficult to keep the romance alive. Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to concentrate on your relationship for a day. Get dressed up even if you’re staying home, stare at each other for 4 minutes, order a special takeout dinner..., you name it. Valentine’s seems like a good time to reminisce on some sweet moments in your relationship – so of course, this would be the perfect date night. This Valentine's Day, open up a little and connect on a more intimate level by getting to know your partner even better. Even if you've been together for years, you'll be surprised to find there's probably something you didn't know about your loved one. 

Learn a Dance Together

Whether you've been in a relationship for years or you're spending your first ever Valentine's Day together, it's never too late to learn something new. If the last time you two danced was at your wedding, plan an at-home date night that centers around getting down. Look up step-by-steps on YouTube and spend the night learning the cha-cha or the foxtrot. You'll end the night a little lighter on your feet and full of laughter. 

Map Out a Future Vacation

Just because you're staying home this Valentine's Day doesn't mean you can't dream of faraway places to visit. Print out maps and photos and spend the night planning either a real or dream vacation.


  No matter how long you've been with your honey, it's no secret that Valentine's Day can be stressful. Between scoring that coveted restaurant reservation and fighting crowds at the movie theater, going out on Valentine's Day is, well, overrated. Instead, stay inside, far away from the February chill, and plan a romantic date night that's more affordable and more memorable than any restaurant dinner.  And while that might sound boring, it's actually the perfect excuse to plan a special indoor date or family activity. The more thought you put into the day, the better. You can exclusively focus on each other, take your time while privately celebrating, and you won't have concerns about poor food, service, or surprise costs. Make your date night a success with these romantic ideas designed to pamper your partner.
