As Valentine’s Day reaches us, a big thing to keep in mind is how to stay safe during these trying times. There are so many ways you can have a wonderful Valentine’s day without leaving the house or gathering in a crowded area. The following article will help give some ideas about how to protect yourself and still enjoy those you love.
Gift of Wine
If you and your loved one enjoy a nice wine to top off that romantic dinner, make it just a little bit better by signing up for a wine subscription. There are so many wonderful companies that are providing things like this. A few of the ones voted the best for 2021 are Tasting room, Wine Awesomeness, First Leaf, The Sip, and Harry and David and Cheese Pairing Club.
Now some of these can be a little pricey, but they give you anywhere from two to six bottles of wine a month. The Sip sends you two bottles of wine and a new wine glass each month. First Leaf lets you take a fun little quiz to determine which wines are best for your taste. Harry and David and Cheese Pairing Club doesn’t only send you wine. They change it each month so that you get a taste of all their exclusive cheeses.
A massage is, arguably, one of the greatest things in the world. Especially with how hard we have all worked this past year. Now this doesn’t have to be anything fancy or expensive. It can be as easy as buying your significant other’s favorite lotion, a couple candles, and put on some relaxing music. But there are now companies that offer in home, private massages. You can schedule it online for a certain time slot, some as late as ten o’clock. You can enjoy a relaxing spa experience with your partner and don’t have to worry about going out and mingling with others.
Scavenger Hunts have been such a fun activity for such a long time. That’s why it belongs on the list for romantic things to do at home for Valentine’s day. You can hide personal items, sentimental mementos, or little love-filled gifts. These can be as intimate as you want and that’s the perk of being at home. You can write little clues to help your significant other find them and what they mean to you or remind you of. It’s such a fun thing that can be done while the kids are awake and continue after they go to bed.
Murder Mystery Anyone?
One thing that has been popular for a while and has really become an interest during the pandemic is true crime. Whether it is a show, a podcast or a social media page, this can be so much fun if you and your partner want to be investigators together. Now you have the choice of choosing a case and doing by yourself or there are now places you can get subscriptions personalized for your own interests. Pour a glass of wine and dive in to a different case each month.
Now I know staying at home isn’t the ideal thing for Valentine’s day, but in these hard times we need to embrace our intermediate family and grateful for those who love us.
