Sick of lockdown?

For couples that want to remind each other of love after months of stepping on each other’s toes and interrupting each other’s Zoom calls, Valentine’s Day means it’s your time to shine.

For those who aren’t lucky enough to be in the same household, this occasion should be more of a celebration! Even if you’re in the same postcode, lockdown may be making you feel like you’re in a long-distance relationship. Valentine’s Day may be the perfect opportunity to close the gap with some of the unique gift ideas and potential plans I’ve listed below.

Our plans might be cancelled, but Valentine’s Day is on more than ever.
