But long distance relationships aren’t as bad and ugly as they may seem to be. When the love is strong, a little distance doesn’t matter, isn’t it?
So, hop down the misery rail and gear up to celebrate this Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart even if he/she may be miles away. Here are 11 amazing long distance valentines date ideas for couples;
#1. The Old Way
This may be the oldest trick in the book but is evergreen indeed. Sending chocolates and flowers is the best valentine’s day gift for long distance couples.
They should be long stemmed ‘red roses’ only. I know you might have heard it from your girlfriend before but that’s only because red roses are a must on valentine’s day.
#2. Get Help from her Siblings
Nothing can be more beautiful and magical than her or even him waking up to a room full of roses!
But since you’re not there you’ll need some help from her pesky little brother. Bribe him with something and ask him to buy some bouquets, hide them away somewhere out of her sight and decorate her room before she wakes up. And Voilà!! You made her day!
#3. Plan a virtual date- Drink your favourite cocktails together.
Planning a virtual date on V-day is the best long distance valentine’s date idea. Grab your favourite drinks which you two always prefer to drink together. Try this trick to make your V-day memorable even when you are far away from your partner.
#4. Roll Back In Time
Remember the time when you just started dating? Ahh… what bliss! Those late night chatting, flirting, blushing and ohh those rogue butterflies that seriously got drunk and made a havoc in your stomach!
Well, invite them over again… Take this Valentine’s Day to remember and relive all those sweet, naughty and beautiful memories. Stay up late and chat!
#5. Movie Marathon
All you need to do here is just get some movie DVDs of both of your choice, get a supply of popcorn ready and settle down in your pajamas in your respective beds.
Watching movies together, hugging your pillows and chatting, commenting and ridiculing is the best way to celebrate valentine’s day for long distance couples.
#6. Cook or Play Together
Cooking together or playing games is a perfect way to celebrate valentine’s day for long-distance couples even when you two are miles away from each other.
Try cooking together because there is nothing sweeter and sexier than dicing vegetables and laughing at each other’s dumb mistakes. You can also try karaoke or other activities in a similar fashion.
#7. Write A Letter
Letter? In the time of email and WhatsApp?!! Yes, because no electronic instrument or virtual writing can pour out the love, care and affection that the old world’s handwritten letter can..
A tip. Use a lightly scented paper, stick some photographs from the times when you’ve been together and send it with a thoughtful gift.
