Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, but it’s going to be a very different affair in 2021. Whether you’re spending it with your soul mate, your best mate, or even just your number one (AKA your good self), here’s how to make it one to remember.
And maybe you can find a cheeky discount to shave some money off your celebration, too. Our expert deal finders have been hard at work selecting only the best…
These days, Galentine’s Day is just as popular as Valentine’s Day, and we can see why. It’s a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your flatmates or gal pals, provided you stick within your lockdown bubble or keep a safe distance, of course!
Self-care should be at the top of your list for 2021, and what better way to kick it off than spending an evening in with your favourite girlies, complete with hair masks, chocolate fondant and lots and lots of laughing? Grab a few essentials from our top picks below and get the party started.
What about your girls that don’t live in your bubble? Not to worry, a takeaway coffee is a stellar idea, as long as it’s just the two of you and you keep your two-metre distance! If you’ve got all the goods at home, you could make yourself a barista-style coffee before you leave, take it with you in a trendy as hell coffee cup and meet your bestie somewhere serene for a wintery walk.
If you’re lucky enough to be living with your significant other, be it a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife, there are a whole range of things you can get up to on 14 February.
Okay, lockdown walks are a tad overdone, especially if you take the same route every time. But why not go on a bit of an adventure? Try finding new paths or cross country walks to explore and get lost in with your other half. You could also time it so you go around sunset for a romantic kiss. Or, if you’re really keen, get up to watch the sunrise together. The choice is yours, kids!

You probably know where this is going. Even if you’ve been together for what feels like forever and a day, romance is never dead! But if you can’t remember the last time you both had a bit of fun, why not spice things up this year? You could buy a new toy and give it a whirl, or try roleplaying in a costume to switch things up.
Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be lonely just because you’re spending it on your own. If you fancy showing yourself a bit of self-love (oh, go on!), we recommend trying one of the following.
Hear us out. Meditating is so unbelievably good for your grey matter and it can help you focus on the present moment.

Great! Here are some helpful effects to get you in the mood.
