How to Make Valentine's Day Special, No Matter Your Relationship Status

Valentine’s Day might look a little different this year with COVID-19 still in play, but that doesn’t mean it has to be any less special. 

No matter if you’re with a partner or significant other, rocking the day solo, or getting together with a friend or two (as per your city’s pandemic guidelines), we have some ideas on how you can make this Valentine’s Day extra special, no matter your relationship status. 

Stay indoors

Stay Indoors and Treat Yourself

It's Spa Time

Something about Valentine’s Day screams indulgence and what better way to do that than by having an at-home spa moment? To set the mood, light a candle or burn incense to really give your space that feeling of tranquility. 

We suggest starting the night off with a long bath, complete with jazz music, candles, and bubbly. Whether alone or with your partner, this quiet time is sure to start your evening on the right foot. Follow that with a non-toxic mani and pedi, and keep that bubbly pouring. 

You may also wish to go full spa treatment and give your partner a facial with the full NENA skincare line. Starting with cleansing and a clay mask, followed by toning and moisturizing, both you and your partner are four steps away from amazing skin. While you’re at it, make sure to include a facial and shoulder massage for the full relaxation experience. 

Rom-com movie night

If you’re wanting something a little more classic-cheesy, we suggest throwing on a romantic comedy movie and chilling in your sweats (we all have loads of them by now, right?), with a clay mask on. This is the perfect option if you’re with a friend or two -- or whoever your social bubble currently allows.

And might we suggest stocking up on all the candy and popcorn while you’re at it?

Stay out safely

Head Out for Some Safe Fun

Cocktail hour

If your city allows it, and you’re feeling adventurous, head out for dinner or a cocktail to celebrate the evening. This could be done with anyone in your circle and allows you to throw on that special something that’s been sitting in your closet for, well, almost a year. 

If you’re more of a daytime gal, head to your favourite cafe -- bonus points if they have Valentine’s Day themed beverages -- and bring your favourite romantic novel along with you for your very own Valentine’s Day celebration.

Enjoy the fresh air

Maybe your city’s restaurants aren’t open for dining-in right now, or you’d just feel safer in the great outdoors. Might we suggest a walk through your favourite neighbourhood or an evening snowshoe adventure? Maybe you can bundle up and enjoy hot chocolate in a park? 

If you do head out of your home for the evening, don’t forget your mask and hand sanitizer to help you stay save! 

DIY Valentine Gifts

Spread Your Love

Why not some DIY 

Getting mail is just not a common thing anymore, and what better way to show someone you care than by slotting something special in the mail for them. Take the time to write them a card, or even have a craft night and decorate special Valentine’s Day cards for the people in your life.

If you feel like being extra sweet, why not make a batch of your favourite cookies or sweet treats and do some distanced drop-offs to your friends and family? It’s a great way to express your love while also getting in a much-needed wave from those you might miss.
