Whilst Valentine’s Day 2021 may look a little different this year, lockdown 3.0 doesn’t mean we have to stop all of the fun. With a little extra planning, you can organise some fun date ideas from the comfort of your own home. Whether you are celebrating with your significant other or virtually with your friends, check out these ideas for a special evening at home.
If you want to cook a romantic meal for your partner but fancy a little helping hand, check out the M&S Dine in For Two Valentine’s deal.

If you don’t feel like rustling something up in the kitchen then why not order your favourite takeaway? This is perfect if you and your friends have different food tastes, simply all order from your favourite takeaway, whether that’s Tortilla, Wagamamas, Five Guys or GBK, and enjoy your meal over Zoom.

Room for dessert? Try the Hotel Chocolat Mini Chocolate Dipping Adventure for 2.

After you have filled up on your favourite food, it’s time to get creative. If you are with your partner, then why not get some healthy competition going with your favourite board games. You could also get crafty and make a scrapbook of all your favourite memories together with a vision board of your future goals. You can pick up a selection of games and different crafting materials at WH Smith.
