Here at Viral Strange, we listed 13 ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the new normal.

You don’t need to buy her an expensive gift. Whatever it is, so long as it comes from the heart, she will appreciate it. It is not about the price that matters to her. It is always the thoughts and intentions that count. She will even love it more when you write a hand-written letter for her. It excites her to read it because you really did exert an effort to do it. After all, she is not high-maintenance, so she appreciates all that you give.

2. Call her on that day

Since going out is not advisable to prevent from acquiring the virus, calling her is the easiest way to make her feel special on that day. Hearing your partner’s voice is actually very comforting. Tell her how she means to you. Tell her that you love her no matter what.

3. Send her a bouquet

The best way to best win her heart is food. Order food for her. It makes her livelier. It gives her life and more. Instead of buying her expensive stuff, she prefers food anytime.

5. Send her voice memos of you singing her favorite songs

One of the best things that make girls blush is a guy that knows how to sing. Her heart will melt when he hears you jam to her favorite songs. She will forever keep it and will listen to it when she misses you that bad.

Girls appreciate things that you really exert effort to make them. Collect all the photos and memorabilia you had and make a scrapbook. It will be a perfect gift for her to reminisce the good things you shared before the pandemic. It will be nostalgic for her, and she will surely appreciate you for that. You have to remember that girls love to keep things with sentimental value. Always give something that is close to her heart.

7. Go on a virtual date with her

With the age of technology, everything is possible now. With the pandemic going on, the safest way to date her is virtual. You can still come up with a date set up like you are doing it in person. You can still have a toast and express how you feel for each other even if you are not together personally. Nothing can really stop a two-person loving dearly.

Nowadays, musicians are opting for a virtual concert due to the pandemic. Watching a concert with her favorite artist with you will make her happy. She will feel that you truly love her because you do your best to connect with the things she loves.

9. Buy her with a new set of makeup

If she is into makeup, then buy her that latest makeup out on the market. If it makes her feel good even more with herself, then you have to support her. Showing support to her will make her respect you even more. You have to respect her choice if she loves wearing it. She is still the woman you love with or without makeup.

10. Give her a new pet

Giving her a new pet is a good idea. Taking care of it is a responsibility, so you have to ask her first if she wants one. If she wants one, you can actually adopt through animal shelters. A pet will serve as her baby that she will take care of until the end. Most especially with the anxiety brought by the pandemic, it is actually a good source of happiness. It can surely uplift her gloomy days.

11. Talk to her mom about surprising her

The best way to pull of a surprise with this new normal is to talk to her mom. Lay your plans to her, and she will definitely help you out. You can have her room filled with balloons, scented candles, and her favorite songs playing in the background. You might not be there with her, but she will still feel romantic about it.

12. Just be yourself

If you can’t afford to buy her fancy gifts, that is okay. She does not expect anything from you, especially that everyone is struggling through this pandemic. You do not have to do things to impress her because she already loves you for who you are. She appreciates whatever you do since day one, so this Valentine’s Day is nothing different for her.

13. Treat her well every day

Your woman deserves the best treatment, even if it is not Valentine’s Day. She deserves to feel genuine happiness every day because that is what she only deserves. She deserves to sleep soundly at night, knowing that she has you who respects and loves her unconditionally. She deserves your love because she also loves you that much. She appreciates everything that you sacrifice for her, and she wants you to know that. She deserves nothing but the best in life, and that includes you.

We have to be true to our words, actions, and intentions to the people we love, even if it is not Valentine’s Day anymore. We have to make them feel special before it is too late. We should always be willing to put our best foot forward for them. We should always respect them because that is what they deserve. It should be every day that we strive to love better.
