Throw a Valentine’s Day party
Turn your home into Valentine’s Day party central. You can throw a Covid-19 safe Valentine’s Day party at home for your immediate family members, you can even video chat your loved ones. Here are some ideas for hosting a socially distant Valentine’s Day shindig on a budget:
- Shop for supplies at your local commissary and at stores that offer military discounts – and don’t forget those coupons!
- Instead of a full meal, serve a variety of finger foods
- Use any holiday leftovers, such as red or white ribbons, as decorations. You can create hearts, roses, etc.
- Keep it simple – A candy in a jar guessing game, a candy/toy treasure hunt, DIY construction paper hearts, dollar store trinkets and similar items can transform any room into a fun, festive space. You don’t have to spend a lot!
- You can even use streaming services to watch movies with your loved ones even if you can’t be in the same household.
Valentine’s Day is a wonderful day to show your loved ones that they are in your heart – but of course, it is just one day. You can express your devotion, affection and gratitude to the special people in your life any day of the year.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
