A classic Valentine’s Day celebration usually involves couples’ massages, dinner at a swanky restaurant, a dozen roses, and maybe some sexy lingerie.
Yet, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many couples are faced with the difficulty of planning the perfect Valentine’s Day date in the midst of increased lockdown measures. So how do we make our loved ones feel special during such uncertain times?
Just because it feels like everything’s been cancelled this year doesn’t mean love is! While many traditional Valentine’s Day activities are not in the cards this year, you can still mark the occasion by planning something within the comfort of your own home.
Here’s our top romantic-yet-simple lockdown V-day ideas that will make your beloved feel special no matter the circumstances.
An intimate night in
Make your home a romantic oasis by ordering in take-out, setting up a candlelit dinner, and decorating the living room with flowers. Don’t just settle for regular flowers; our gorgeous preserved rose boxes last forever and are the ultimate symbol of everlasting love.
Of course, date night isn’t complete without a sexy ensemble. We’ve chosen a few of our favourite black dresses that are ultra-flattering for all body-types.
Christine Dress - One of our classiest black dresses that features feminine lace trim and sexy bustier cups.
Crishelle Dress - You can’t go wrong with black dresses in curve-defining bandage fabric. We love the peplum detail and high slit.
Davina Dress - If you’re a fan of more chic and structured black dresses, Citylux has got you covered with this one-shoulder piece.
Sexy virtual date
If you and your loved one live in separate households and quarantine is keeping you apart, then just connect online! Schedule a Zoom date, plan to order-in from the same restaurant, and make sure you both have your favourite vino on hand. Share a meal together and it will feel like you’re closer than you actually are. You also get extra points if you have dessert delivered to your boo’s house. Just because you can’t be together physically doesn’t mean you can’t spend quality time virtually. Dress up as you would for any regular pre-pandemic date, and you’re guaranteed to feel love in the air. We suggest opting for sparkling women’s dresses to really draw attention to the screen.
Mikayla dress - Steal the show in one of our sparkliest black dresses. This eye-catching dress features a plunging v-neckline.
Bekah Dress - Women’s dresses should never be boring! This pearl-encrusted, bedazzled number is just what you need to give you that extra confidence boost.
A romantic restaurant dinner date
The restaurant industry has been hit particularly hard by the pandemic. If you live in an area where restaurants are still open for dine-in, then we suggest supporting local businesses and having a romantic dinner out. Lots of restaurants are offering pre-paid dinner tickets to ensure that proper social distancing can be maintained, so take this as an opportunity to get dolled-up. Red dresses are a classic choice for Valentine’s day, so why not go all out with the holiday theme?
Aly Dress - Long-sleeved red dresses are practical but still sexy. This dress will keep you warm on your night out on the town.
Selena Dress - One of our staple red dresses that suits all body-types.
With some creativity and planning, you can still enjoy a special Valentine’s Day celebration with your loved ones. Whether you’re staying in or going out on February 14, we believe it’s important to look and feel your best.
