It’s that time of year again: love is in the air! Unfortunately, so is COVID-19 this year.
At a glance, it may feel as though social distancing and quarantine may put a damper on potential Valentine’s Day plans. However, with a little bit of creativity, you and your loved ones can plan the perfect stay-at-home evening in the comfort of the community.
In place of going out to dinner at a restaurant, try ordering food online and having it delivered straight to your house with ezBites.
Based right here in Seven Lakes, ezBites offers pickup from local eateries and delivers it to your front door hot and fresh. Restaurant options include 7 Lakes Pizza, Casa Santa Ana, New York Deli II, and more – meaning you’re not just limited to fast food delivery.
To set the mood, stop by the Seven Lakes Dollar General and check out the movie selection currently available at Redbox. The movie rental kiosk frequently cycles through the latest cinematic releases, while also bringing back fan favorites and classics.
Top it off with a box of locally made My Sweet Handcrafted Chocolates from Seven Lakes Prescription Shoppe for the perfect quarantine-proof date night.
Luckily for those who prefer not to stay inside this Valentines Day, Seven Lakes has plenty to offer. Going for a walk around the community or one of its many lakes is a great way to not only get out, but to get active with your Valentine.
Outdoor enthusiasts with a flair for romance may enjoy packing a picnic and relaxing at the lake with their loved ones. Walking, boating, bird watching, and other fun outdoor activities can all be done while safely distanced from others.
A Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt either around your own home or the community can be a fun way to get you and your partner up and about. Stashing a series of notes, clues, and small gifts around your home or community landmarks can be a fun way to keep entertained while also keeping your distance from others.
If all else fails, put a romantic spin on your day-to-day routine. Plan a spa day or cook dinner together. Treat your partner with breakfast in bed or indulge your creative side and work on a hobby together. In the end, it’s the company that makes the day special, and having someone to spend the day with is worth celebrating.
