Valentine’s in a Pandemic


Katie Hubbert

With the pandemic putting a setback on Valentine’s Day plans, couples are getting more creative. Here are a few ideas if you are stuck on what to do.

Picnic in a Park– Want to go outdoors and have a relaxing day with your loved one? A picnic in the nearest park is perfect. Walk on the paths, sit on the bench and talk, find a nice spot and have a nice homemade lunch. It’s cheap, easy, and fun.

Day in Galveston– You and your partner want to be outdoors, but near things to do? Galveston is a great option. Stroll around on the beach, visit the many shops on the strand, have a nice meal, and visit Pleasure Pier. 

Lazy Day In– Want to stay in and chill? Have a lazy day in. Wear comfy clothes all day. Watch movies on the couch. Make a fun meal. Just spend the day unplugged from phones and with your special someone.

Space Center- Want to go to a classic museum? Space Center Houston is a local and popular spot to go to. Even if you have been many times before it’s always a fun place to go to and check out. You and your partner will learn something new.

Virtual Cooking Class- Want to learn to cook with your person? Attend a virtual cooking class this Valentine’s Day. Main meals, appetizers, deserts, and side dishes, a cooking class will be a great option.

DIY Dinner and a Movie- A spin on the typical Valentine’s plan, choose a movie neither of you have seen and order in a nice meal. Stay at home and be comfortable while having something like the typical dinner and a movie Valentine’s Day plan.
