Even couples in long-distance relationships can show their love in a multitude of ways. Here are a few romantic date ideas that will make Valentine's Day extra special

I'd like to think couples in long-distance relationships have the opportunity to tap into their creative side to plan romantic dates. If anything, it motivates them to create memorable celebrations with each other considering that it's hard to spend every holiday together.

Regardless of limited date options, there are other fun and creative date ideas long-distance partners have yet to experience.

Browse below for some inspiration:

1. Cook Together

There are couples who bond over food. This date idea is made for foodies who would like to cook their favourite dish together. Spend the whole day preparing for your cooking session with each other via video call.

You may even use the website SuperCook where you both add which ingredients you have at home to determine what dish you can make together at that very moment.

Afterwards, dedicate time to taste the food you've made together!

2. Plan a Surprise Visit

This date idea takes a few days or months to prepare, but it'll be worth it. You can surprise your partner by visiting them on Valentine's Day. This is a big move for some, but for those who are already thinking of taking the relationship to the next level, you might as well show them a gesture that shows you're willing to do anything to be in their presence.

Otherwise, you can plan a second destination afterwards, perhaps a trip to a camping site or a restaurant you both have always wanted to visit.

3. Recreate a Better Dinner Date

For this date idea, you're going to need a little help from friends or family members. If you're close with his or her loved ones, this will be easy for you to pull off.

Plan to have his or her room (or any space where you can both have privacy) decorated when he or she is not around. Think balloons, streamers, banners, flowers, and other elements that symbolise your relationship. While your accomplice is busy with this, recreate your place using similar decorations. This way, it will look like you're both in the same room.

Once your partner's home, set up a video call and proceed with your dinner date.

4. Take Them on a Tour

If there's one place you love visiting, take your partner with you. Show them around your favourite destinations, whether it's the beach, a park, or a cafe you love.

You may even encourage your partner to do the same through video call and have a date between two worlds.

5. Play Escape Games

The games you play don't have to be the usual board games or card games. Instead, opt for online escape rooms or breakout rooms to see how your partner would act under pressure. This can also test how well you both work as a team. You can play escape room games online through the likes of Breakout Philippines, Mystery Manila, The Hogwarts Escape Room, and more.

This is also a great date idea for those who have only started a long-distance relationship.
