Are you in a long-distance relationship? Conquer the distance and feel the love with these Valentine’s Day celebration ideas!
Long Distance Valentines Day Ideas that Conquer Distances
1. Have a Zoom Valentine’s Date Night
Zoom has been effective in connecting people. This Valentine’s day skip the Messenger chatbox or Viber messaging and schedule a Zoom date night. Customize your background to make it more occasion-appropriate. There are available backgrounds that you can use with the app but you can upload your own photo too. Choose a special venue that will bring back sweet memories to create a romantic vibe instantly!
2. Watch a Movie ‘Together’
Do you both love watching movies and used to spend binge-watch together? Even when you are miles apart, this can still be possible. Download a movie of your choice or find a series on Netflix that you will both enjoy. You can do it via Face time or you can create a room on Facebook Messenger to make each other’s presence felt during this romantic day. If you’re planning a movie marathon, try to be extra by having his/her favorite snacks delivered!
3. Have a Game Night
Want to make sure that your Valentine’s date night won’t be boring? Keep the fun rolling by planning a game night. There are several games that you can play online that combine fun and competition. You can also have some cocktails and snacks in between. You may not be together physically, but you can engage in activities that you’ll both enjoy!
4. Share the Same Meal
Reminisce the time when both of you can still go out and eat at your favorite restaurant. Surprise your date with food delivery. Order for yourself too so you can eat together just like the old days. Make it more romantic by dressing up and setting up a table as if you’re really dining out.
5. Send a Personalized Care Package
Since you won’t be personally there to pamper and care for your special someone, you can show your thoughtfulness by sending a personalized care package. Imagine how he/she will react to a package filled with his/her favorite things. This can include snacks, toiletries, souvenirs, and anything that he/she collects. You may not be there, but this will show how you make sure that his/her needs are well taken cared of.
6. Don’t Forget the Flowers
