5 Valentine’s Day date ideas for 2021

Stumped on Valentine’s Day date ideas? Whether you’ve been with your partner for a while or if you’re exploring a new romance, dating can be a minefield.

Like many people in the dating pool right now, you–or your potential person–might be more choosy and include openness to wearing a mask as one of their new requirements. In fact, some people have even broken up over it.

Our Lockdown Love Bundle is a great Valentine’s Day gift you can use on future dates and show your commitment to public health.

It includes a full-sized Make Me Last Dry Shampoo and a pair of our Mulberry Silk Non-Medical Face Masks that have adjustable ear fasteners, an adjustable nose plate and a pocket for a filter. And since it’s silk, you can definitely feel comfortable wearing this for longer periods of time!

Reserve a dinner date out

With restaurants still facing restrictions, book early to avoid Valentine’s Day disappointment. Spots sell out quickly–so start calling this weekend!

Staying home for Valentine’s Day? Order a Valentine’s Day meal for pickup to dine in! If you don’t live together, or are just getting to know each other, celebrate with a virtual dinner of takeout from their favourite restaurant.

Have a private wine tasting

If you’re in a city, make a reservation at a wine bar for your socially distanced date. Or make it a weekend date and head to a winery out of town!

Going virtual? Check wineries to see if they’re offering wine tasting flights that can be delivered to your door or make your own! If your date is game, get them to create a personalized wine flight for you while you create one for them and explain your choices afterward.

If you prefer to go local without the labour, check your local wine bar to see if they have a Valentine’s Day set you can order online.

Go on a road trip

If it’s allowed, it could be fun to take the weekend to do a short road trip and enjoy a quick getaway in an Airbnb or at a nearby bed-and-breakfast!

Going virtual? Take the weekend to take your date on a tour of your neighbourhood or city and have them do the same for you.

See a movie

Head to a drive-in for a movie experience. Your local theatre might be doing a special Valentine’s Day promotion so call early to inquire and reserve a spot!

Going virtual? Stream a movie together and be as loud as you want!

Go for happy hour

Visit a local bar to enjoy a Valentine’s Day themed happy hour for a low-key date.

Going virtual? Book a private appointment with a virtual mixologist to create customized cocktails at home.
