Have A Safe Dine-In Date

Now that most areas in the country have transitioned to general community quarantine, it is completely possible to go out for Valentine’s Day. Just make sure to follow health protocols such as social distancing, wearing face masks, face shields, and doing temperature checks. Luckily for you, most restaurants at SM Supermalls offer QR menu codes, cashless payments, and reservation options for your safety and comfort. 

Set Up A Virtual Dinner

If food is the way to your significant other’s heart, and you want to stay in instead, schedule a video call on Valentine’s Day using your My Phone myX12 and have a virtual dinner date. Break out the candles, romantic music, and wine. Don’t forget to dress up too!

Wear your gorgeous red dress or that suit and tie you’ve always liked to impress your date. To make things easier, choose to have your food delivered. Match the meal with your date. If you want to order some steak, Kenny Rogers can deliver it right to your doorstep.

You’ll find that the experience can be just as romantic and fancy as dining out, without the hassle.  

Read Books

Are you and your partner total bookworms? Bond this Valentine’s Day by reading books together. At Fully Booked, you can grab your favorite novels. Whether you like fiction, manga, classics, or young adult books — you can share your favorite parts with each other. If you choose romantic books, take turns later reading each other your favorite (or cheesiest) passages.

In fact, you can even read books about religion and spirituality by heading to St. Pauls Bookstore. 

Listen To Music

Listening to music together can be extra special if you’re creative enough. Try sharing your favorite songs with your date (whether virtually or next to each other). 

Better yet, give each other prompts like “Play a song that reminds you of me” or “Play a song that will always have a special place in your heart”. This is a perfect idea for dates who want to know more about each other. Don’t forget to plug in noise-canceling earphones like the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro. 

With pro-grade technology, it ensures an immersive sound like never before. Get ready to block the world and focus on your Valentine’s date. Who knows? Something so simple can create some of life’s sweetest moments.  

Stream Movies At The Same Time

Thanks to technology, you can stream movies at the same time. It’s one of the best and most popular safe Valentine’s Day date ideas for 2021. 

So grab your laptop and set up a Netflix party. Watch that movie you’ve always wanted to see with your significant other or perhaps get them updated with your favorite K-drama series. Don’t forget to bring out the popcorn! 

Whatever you decide to watch, just make sure to use a high-performance laptop like the MacBook Pro M1 2020. No one wants to end up ruining the date because of lagging. Fortunately, Apple made it possible to give the 13‑inch MacBook Pro speed and power beyond belief. 

Do Arts and Crafts Together

It doesn’t matter if either of you or your date has a talent for art. You will find it fun to come out with different artworks together and unleash your inner artists. It can be anything from scrapbooking, clay sculpting, or canvas painting. 

Grab your art and crafts supplies from Papemelroti, Office Warehouse, or National Bookstore. Show each other the finished results! It will be a memorable memento of this year’s socially distant Valentine’s Day. 

Play Mobile Games

Using its Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 AIE, all your games — whether it’s Mobile Legends, Call of Duty, or Wild Rift — won’t lag. 

Go On A Quick Getaway

With a little advanced planning, it is entirely possible to have a quick getaway with your Valentine’s date. Head to a nearby beach in Batangas or perhaps enjoy the cold weather in Tagaytay. Grab a backpack that’s equally fashionable and functional like the Anello Retro Backpack. Then, make sure to pack everything you need including extra face masks and hand sanitizers.

Don’t forget to take photos of the stunning scenery and record your sweet moments together. Use the Huawei P30 Pro. Its unmatched super camera system includes a SuperZoom Lens, a 40 MP Super Sensing Camera, a 20 MP Ultra Wide Angle Lens, and a HUAWEI TOF Camera, giving you the freedom to capture your Valentine’s Day memories. Rest assured this is one for the books! 

Get Pampered Together

Relax with your date and head to Bench Fix Salon and Bruno’s Barbershop to get new hairstyles. Perhaps a teeth cleaning appointment at Great Smile Dental Center? Or maybe a luxurious Brow Shaping at Brow Lounge?
