When you are in love, every single day becomes worth celebrating. And, Valentine’s Day is one occasion when you absolutely do not want to miss being with your special someone and go that extra mile to make them feel loved. Couples all over the world make plans days ahead of February 14 to create fond memories. But, what if you are in a long-distance relationship?
Being all by yourself, with your partner miles away on Valentine’s Day can be tough. But there is no reason to worry anymore, as we have five of the most romantic ways for you to celebrate this special day together, even while being away physically. Read on to know how you are going to love this!
#1. Do not forget the 'I love you' call
We are sure you call your partner every day. But on this special day, don’t forget that romantic “I just called to say I love you” phone call. What’s better? Call exactly when the clock strikes 12. Hearing you say “I love you” as soon as they wake up can beat all other romantic gestures or any other expensive gifts. This phone call will make them feel more loved and special, and it will set a happy, ‘feel good’ tone for the whole day.
#2. Go beyond flowers and teddies
Sending flowers or teddies is too clichéd. Send your partner a few things they really like, and add to them a really personal item, like pyjamas or a T-shirt with a cute message on it. You can even add a handwritten love note. Pack these together with ribbons. Get it sent to their workplace or home. Expect an overwhelmed, happy phone call as soon as they receive it.
#3. Plan for an 'e-date'
Just because you and your sweetheart are miles apart, does not mean that you cannot have a romantic candlelight dinner this V-Day. Just plan a virtual date. Order the cuisine you both like, open a bottle of wine, play your favourite music and light some candles. Invite your darling for a video chat and enjoy this 'e-date'. This will be more romantic than anything else, we promise you.
#4. Have a romantic dance
Both of you have had romantic movie dates or couple dance in the past. So what if you are apart? You still can reminisce them this Valentine's Day, with a twist! Have a romantic dance or a movie marathon over the phone. Pick movies you both like and watch them at the same time and laugh on some funny scenes or get romantic over the mushy ones. Pick up your favourite music tracks, coordinate your steps and shake your legs on it. Before you even realise, you will have the most romantic night without being physically close to each other!
#5. Send a video note
Create a video clip of yourself expressing your feelings for your sweetheart and how special they make you feel. Email them this clip, and we guarantee you that they will cherish it for life.
#6. Plan a surprise trip
What could be more romantic than surprising your love on Valentine’s day? Take off from work, book a ticket, pack your bags, go and meet your Valentine on the most romantic and special day of the year. Make the best memories this Valentine’s day.
Distance makes the heart grow fonder, they say, and we couldn’t agree more! Being physically apart is no reason for you to feel gloomy on the most romantic day of the year. Try these options and we are sure your V-Day will be amazing.
