What activities can you make on 2021 while still in quarantine?
1. Take a hike
Whether you live in a cold area or not, taking a walk outside the nature will make you feel closer to your valentine. Maybe there's a favorite spot both of you like, or you might want to try one of the best hikes in the U.S., do not limit yourself to which city or state you live! With this trip or just a small walk out of neighborhood, you will be more bound to each other and have fun time because you're with your lifetime company.
2. Play tourist in your own town
If you both know your town, you may act like total strangers to where you live for one day just for fun! Become tourists in your own home town and finally check off one or two of those bucket list items you keep putting off. Get into the role by snapping tons of pictures throughout the day. Make this day more memorable with those pictures and the places you always wanted to visit.
3. Set up a waffle bar
Since going out is harder these days, indoor activities are must. Cooking is one of the most enjoyable activity inside but to make it more special you can be picky on what to cook together. If brunch is your favorite meal to eat together, build the waffles of your dreams by setting up a DIY waffle bar. All you need is some waffle batter, a waffle maker, and all the toppings your hearts desire.
You can even buy one of these funny waffle makers to get more creative with your valentine!
4. Make a scrapbook of your relationship
This is a must in these hard days, as the communication saves our relationships. With this journal, we'll be more open to each other and here are the some small FAQ about this idea:
Why should I use this journal?
Communication is a pillar of relationship, and it takes effort. It's been determined by mental health professionals that over 65% of couples who get divorced is due to "poor communication." We believe this little journal can change that by establishing a healthy rhythm of communication. Never let a week go by without connecting, communicating, and ultimately - growing in love.
How long does the journal go?
The Marriage Journal is a 52 week journal. It will last you a whole year! (Enough to make your 2021 Valentine's Day memorable)
Is this journal religious?
Connecting, communicating and being intentional about marriage is a healthy habit for everyone - no matter your religious beliefs.
5. Bake some desert to sweeten your Valentine!
When his tummy is happy, he will be happy. Cook something delicious for him. Put your love onto what you prepare for him and if he wants to join, baking is a fun way to spend more time with your significant other.

8. Movie night in
After that lovely dinner, you can hangout on Netflix or Youtube to watch both of your favorite show or video.
9. Massage each other
Yes, massage each other. This might be weird but you will feel very close to each other when you make your lover comfortable. You will both enjoy relaxation and joy and this will benefit your relationship.
You can also help him de-stress by drawing him a bubble bath, giving him a manicure and pedicure. A possible nap together would be a cozy idea afterwards.
10. Do his favorite activity with him
Does your boyfriend or husband like to play video games? If yes, join him for one day. This will definitely make his day and will remember the time spent with you on this special day.
This is an easy and thoughtful way to show your affection is with a date where you do his favorite activity with him. You can also listen to his favorite podcast or music or watching his favorite sport other than video gaming.
11. Surprise him with flirty photos
Get creative! Surprise your boyfriend with flirty photos of yourself to attract his attention towards yourself. He will want and enjoy spending time with you. Other than hot flirty images, some cute ideas include wearing his favorite team’s jersey, cosplay from his favorite movies and shows, or wearing some cozy clothes would make him feel hug you more.
12. DIY projects
I don't know you but I love 5-Minute Crafts. You can get an idea from there and start you project on that day. DIY projects are a great way to show your creativity and create something that he’ll really enjoy. This Youtube channel has so many videos that one of them would be his favorite. Try painting/gluing or crafting some wood to create a memorial item together. I am sharing an example video for you to enjoy:
13. Write love letters to each other
Sit on a table and start writing letter to each other. Share some of things you love with your valentine and some of the things you don't like about. This is a relationship developer tool actually. You will be showing yourself what are the weaknesses in your relationship and you can work toward them to fix. Relationship is not all about admiration, love and attraction but also criticism, hate and repel. Balance and communication is the key!
14. Practice yoga together
Make this day all about relaxation. Open up a simple yoga tutorial on youtube and get some basic kit for you two and make it happen. Hint: Acro yoga increases the intimacy between couple.
In conclusion, 2021 should be the communication year with your valentine. It is the savior of our relationships and to communicate more, one of the given activities for this Valentine's Day would definitely fit into your plan.
