Valentine’s Day: LDR Edition

Ideas for Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day can be a lonely time if you’re in a long distance relationship, but it doesn’t need to be. There are more ways than ever to get in touch, stay in touch, and provide your partner with a day to remember.


1. Send a present 

Whether your partner likes lingerie, bath products, beard oils, or books, there’s an online store that will ship to them in a hurry. You’ll probably want to order within the next couple days, so get on it!

2. Plan a dinner date

You can order from your partner’s favorite take-out restaurant and have it delivered right to their door, or you two can discuss the menu ahead of time and cook the same things in your respective locations. For extra fun, try making a new cocktail together. See the end of this article for our alcoholic and non-alcoholic suggestions!

3. Plan a holiday

If you two have flexible holiday time and the money to do it, organizing a future holiday together can be a lot of fun. Plan now for a vacation this summer, and you’ll save on flights and hotels. Amsterdam is pretty nice in the summertime…

4. Practice a striptease 

Whether you make it funny or sexy, it’s a memorable Valentine’s gift for sure! Not sure where to start? There are lots of tutorials on YouTube. Just don’t do your research whilst you’re at the office desk!

5. Have a movie night 

Sure, it’s an old standby, but it’s a standby for a reason. It’s nice, and it’s easy to organize via distance. Pick a favorite movie or something you’ve both been wanting to see. If you can run Skype or FaceTime at the same time as your movie, you can watch together, and see each other’s reactions (particularly great for scary movies).

    Check out our drink suggestions below!

    Mocktail: French Kiss

    • 2 cups ice
    • 12.5ml fresh lemon juice
    • 2 dashes lemon or orange bitters
    • 1 bottle of premium tonic water (such as Fever Tree)
    • 1 rock candy swizzle sticks


    1. Add fresh lemon juice and bitters to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until frosty then pour into a champagne flute or coupe glass.
    2. Top off with tonic water until it reaches about 3/4 of the way up the glass.
    3. Garnish with the swizzle sticks and serve immediately.
    NOTE: Can’t find rock candy? Add 1 teaspoon superfine sugar along with the lemon juice and bitters in the shaker.

      Cocktail: Elderbubble

      • 2 cups ice
      • 5ml fresh lemon juice
      • 12.5ml Gin
      • 12.5ml Elderflower liqueur
      • Top with Presseco/Champagne
      • Delicate slice of cucumber


      1. Add fresh lemon juice, Gin, and Elderflower liqueur to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until frosty then pour into a champagne flute or coupe glass.
      2. Top off with the bubbly until it reaches about 3/4 of the way up the glass.
      3. Garnish with cucumber and serve immediately. 
      NOTE: Can’t find elderflower liqueur? Syrup or cordial works just as well, and it’s a little less alcoholic ;)

        If you don’t have a shaker, there’s no need to worry. You can always build this cocktail in the glass, one ingredient at a time, and simply give it a good stir at the end ]
