Being in a long distance relationship is hard enough, and when Valentine’s day is around the corner, it just seems way
harder. But worry not ladies, because when there is a will, there is a way. If you both really love each other, nothing should stop you from making the other one feel special. So, on 14th feb, even if he is far away, here are a few romantic Valentine’s day ideas you should use to celebrate the day of love!
Valentine’s Day Idea 1. A (Virtual) date
So what if you’re in a long distance relationship and cannot go out together for a date? This is the time to put technology to full use. Plan a Skype date! Dress up in a pretty dress and ask him to suit up. Have wine and your fave food in front of you, just like you would if you were in the same city! And maybe end it on a steamy note? *Ahem ahem*
Valentine’s Day Idea 2. Love in letters
Go for some old school lovin’! There is nothing more romantic and heartfelt than a handwritten letter from the love of your life. Send him a series of letters throughout the week leading up to Valentine’s day. You could also put on your red lippie and watermark every letter with kisses. How cute is that?
Valentine’s Day Idea 3. Some romantic time with the couple app
is made for you guys! You can keep your photos together, send secrets (photos that disappear), thumbkiss, sketch together and send him cute ‘thinking of you’ messages even when he is offline. You can also play some online games together. It’s the easiest way to have a fun time when you’re in a long distance relationship!
Valentine’s Day Idea 4. Ask his roommate/bestie for some help
What else are BFFs for? Make a small package for each day of Valentine’s week and ask his roomie/ best friend to leave the gifts, one by one, somewhere he can easily (but not too easily!) spot.
Valentine’s Day Idea 5. Movie date… Yes! You can totally do that!
Download a movie you’ve both been wanting to watch for a long time. You can even watch movies on YouTube by paying a nominal amount (anywhere between Rs 50-120). Get cozy in your separate beds but watch the movie together, even in a long distance relationship. Just don’t forget the popcorn!
Valentine’s Day Idea 6. Send him a video of you singing ‘your’ song
Every couple has that one song that’s ‘their’ song. Even if you are not a singer or a guitarist, learn to play or sing that song and then send him a video recording of the same. It’s going to be the cutest thing ever!
Valentine’s Day Idea 7. …Or you can dedicate him a song over the radio.
If you don’t have too much time, you can totally request a song for him on the radio. There are numerous request based radio shows around Valentine’s day. Just make sure he isn’t snoring away to glory while it’s on the air! #LOL
Valentine’s Day Idea 8. Have his fave food delivered to his doorstep
Best. Idea. Ever. And the dessert’s on you… *Wink*
Valentine’s Day Idea 9. Take him down memory lane with a video!
Go around your city and click pictures of the spots that you both love. The place where you met, where you had your first date, that restaurant you both love, that tapri waale bhaiya whose chai you always have. Then compile all that and make a cute video with a beautiful song playing in the background. He won’t be able to get rid off that cute goofy grin of his!
Valentine’s Day Idea 10. And nothing like a surprise visit
Well, why not? If you can, then splurge on the best surprise gift he can get. Coordinate with his roomie or his best friend and plan a trip to his place. Show up at his doorstep and make sure to ask his friend to record his reaction. This romantic Valentine’s day idea is so
gonna be worth it!
