Don’t forget one of the most important details of all: music! Great tunes help set the tone, too, especially when they’re songs that you thoughtfully curate yourself. Put some time and effort into this step — you can bet that your significant other will be totally “in tune” with your choices if you pick songs that have some special meaning to both of you.
Think about artists you’ve seen live together, the band that you both can’t resist, the song that you first danced to together, the song that was playing at the restaurant on your first date, the tune you both sing to in the car. The general idea is simply to create a playlist that reflects the best of your relationship. Focus on the “mix” element so there’s a good balance of both up-tempo and slow songs. A ballad here and there won’t hurt, especially if you want to set the mood for romance or enjoy a slow dance with one another.
The right details mean everything when it comes to planning a memorable date night during quarantine. Given that you see the person each and every day, there are very few surprises left — but treating this unique Valentine’s Day with the respect that it deserves and adding a few special touches to the occasion are sure to make it an unforgettable quarantined holiday for you both.
