Brunch, but make it socially-distancing

Imagine that it’s this time last year, February 2020. You’re wearing the outfit you planned for a Champagne Breakfast with your boo, and the new 'Lola' ponytail you bought has you looking effortlessly glamorous. Don’t worry, you’re not the only one craving a bottomless Brunch! But fear not, you can still bring a bouji Valentine’s Day brunch to the comfort of your own home (and you can still rock the ponytail look, too!)
If you’re wanting to relax with bae but still eat great food, why not order a Valentine’s brunch from some of these amazing companies. @safiyahmco is a private chef and offers bespoke brunches with Caribbean twists; from liquor-infused French Toast, to Plantain Waffles and more. @yoursbakefully is another business offering Valentine’s specials from smashable love hearts to assorted Valentine’s Day cupcakes, so why not brighten your partner’s day with treats and champagne, order now!
2. Galentines Day
All my single ladies put your hands up!

To all the singletons out there, don’t write off Valentine’s just yet! What better way to celebrate a day of love than spending time with the women you love the most – your girlfriends.
If you’re spending this Valentine’s Day without a bae, plan a cute fun-filled day of snacks and activities with your girls, instead, celebrating friendship and sisterhood all 2021.
And don’t worry, even if your girls aren’t in your bubble, you can still have a virtual Galentines! @LXRcreate has amazing motivational products, including their Galentines At Home Kit. The kit is for the ultimate girl’s night in, at only £12, it includes quizzes, bucket lists and a chance to manifest your 2021 goals together with your girls. If you want to make the day even more memorable, why not co-ordinate outfits and hairstyles? Try our ‘Anna’ Bob Wig for instagrammable girl gang looks.
3. Spa day with Bae
Self-care is the best kind!

If you’re wanting to spend quality time with your other half, then this is the perfect idea to combine both self-care and Valentine’s Day celebration. Proven to reduce stress, anxiety and depression, acts of self-care allows us to not only help ourselves, but those around us as well. Simple yet powerful, a Valentine’s spa day is the best way for you and your other health to get both a mental and physical glow up.
We’re obsessed with @KNCBeauty, who’ve made a name for themselves with natural ingredients and cute packaging. We love their famous Lip Masks, so why not grab their ‘Mask and Chill’ set, put on some Drake, and relax for a well-needed skin detox.
4. Paint and Sip
Paint + Rosé = Best. Combo. Ever
(Top to Bottom: Etsy/ @LittleCrafterscouk, Our Kind of Crazy)
Ever enjoyed a Paint and Sip event? If it wasn’t for lockdown, we’d be going to Sip N’ Stroke events all-year round. There’s just something about getting creative and tipsy that has the best effect on people, and luckily for us, it’s something that can easily be enjoyed at home.
Etsy is a great site for arts and crafts, and businesses like LittleCrafterscouk have plenty of Valentine’s-oriented products to buy, such as their Valentine’s Craft Kit.
Whether it’s with your other half or friends, let a little wine guide your paintbrush on this fun and creative Valentine’s.
5. Dress Up
Time to impress, pull out your freakum dress!

Does anyone remember how to wear heels? That makes two of us. After weeks and months of wearing comfy at-home outfits and fluffy dressing gowns, why not take this one weekend of the year to glam up and remind your bae that they’re lucky to have you! A lingerie brand we’re loving right now is the @nubianskin range, with perfect nude lingerie for any skin tone. If you’re in the mood for something a little sexier, why not indulge in the new @savagexfenty Valentine’s range for an instant confidence boost. To complete the look, try our ‘Nikki’ bang wig in the shade Burgundy for an easy upgrade without the fuss of going to a salon!
