Romantic Virtual Valentine’s Day Ideas 

If you’re celebrating with a partner and staying in due to COVID-19, you can still have a romantic and special night at home with these virtual Valentine’s Day ideas: 

Stream a Virtual Concert

Nothing says romance like a candlelit dinner with music. Consider booking a talented musician offering virtual services, so you and your partner can have a private concert together. Choose from violinists, acoustic guitar players, or jazz singers to really set the mood.

Pro Tip: You can even buy tickets to a virtual concert with Josh Groban this Valentine’s Day.

Do you and your significant other have a special cocktail that you love? Maybe it was the drink you ordered on your first date or had at your wedding reception. Recreate your own version of this memory by taking a virtual cocktail class. Learn from professional mixologists so you and your loved one can surprise people at future events with your newly found bartending skills.

Nowadays, almost everything has a virtual alternative—including wine tastings. Open up a bottle of wine (or two) and create your own winery at home with a professional. Learn more about the best virtual wine tastings here.

Book a Comedy Show

If red roses aren’t part of your love language, consider booking a virtual comedian for a more casual and hilarious Valentine’s date idea. Get comfortable, sit back, relax, and prepare to laugh with your loved one. This is the perfect date night for a silly couple.

Pro Tip: Looking for something more than just a classic comedy show? Select from comedy jugglers, comedy hypnotists, and comedy magicians for a special twist.

Take a Cooking Class Together

Show off your culinary skills by looking into virtual cooking classes. Turn on some music, find a delicious recipe to learn, and dance around the kitchen while preparing your date night dinner.

Virtual Galentine’s Day Ideas

If you ask us, Galentine’s Day (unofficially celebrated on February 13th) is just as important as Valentine’s Day. Invite your best girls, dress up in your cutest red and pink outfit, and get ready to spread the love with your best friends. 

Mystical Experiences

You don’t need to be single to celebrate Galentine’s Day—it's for everyone! If you are single and want to see if love is in your future, or in a relationship and want to learn more, book a session with a psychic or tarot card reader offering virtual services. 

Your gals will love to hear these party vendors will share their fate while seeing what your future has in store.

In the age of social distancing, a virtual Valentine’s Day exchange just seems right. Send Valentine’s Day cards through the mail or email, and open them up together on video chat.
