When it comes to celebrating Valentine’s Day, it’s important to make the day extra-special for your loved one. There’s the traditional romantic dinner and exchange of homemade Valentine’s Day gifts, of course, but what about when you want to do something a little more creative and one-of-a-kind? While things may look and feel different this year, there are still plenty of ways to make Valentine’s Day special for your partner.
1. Go on a Hike or a Bike Ride
If the weather allows, take a mini adventure in your own neighbourhood or city. You may discover some hidden gems on your new route. Plus, the physical exercise releases endorphins.
2. Watch a Valentine’s Day Movie
Pop some popcorn, make some cheesy snacks, light a mood-setting candle, make some hot chocolate and watch a Valentine’s Day movie while snuggling under a blanket in the comfort of your home. See a list of Vday movies to choose from here: http://bit.ly/39nsbns
3. Stream a Virtual Concert or Show
After you finish making a Valentine’s Day playlist for each other, take date night to the next level with some local virtual entertainment. With so many events being cancelled worldwide, Creative Feel has put together a list of virtual events so that you can continue supporting and uplifting South Africa’s creative sector.

4. Make A Chocolate Fondue
What’s more romantic than making your own chocolate covered strawberries at home with hot melted fondue?
5. Whip Up Breakfast in Bed
The ultimate sweet something for your sweet someone? Breakfast in bed—featuring a spread that only includes heart-shaped treats. See my Pinterest collection here: http://bit.ly/3iNaIIg
6. Use an App to Stargaze
Bust out a blanket and take some time to admire the universe with the help of the Sky View app which will actually show you what constellations you’re looking at. Why not throw in some poetry too! Get the Sky View app on Android or IOS.
7. Recreate Your Favourite Date
Take a trip down memory lane by re-creating your favourite date, whether that’s your first date or the one where you fell in love. Even if you can’t go to the same restaurant, you can get creative by cooking up the same meal at home!
8. Share the love with SnapnSave!
