While Covid-19 has started making a comeback in our lives with its Omicron variant, travel plans again seem to be going for a toss. Couples preparing for their anniversaries already seem to be distressed and are looking for ways to make the big day special, albeit with masks and social distancing! If you too are a couple confused about how to celebrate your first anniversary, here’s our list of the top 8 things to do while ensuring utmost safety for you and your partner.
Now is the perfect time to plan a vacation at a plush 5-star property and unwind with your partner. To avoid flouting covid-19 guidelines, we suggest you head to your nearest hotel and spend the day in the room, binge-watching your favorite shows, drinking wine, and enjoying some cozy time in the bathtub.
Pro tip – do mention the occasion to the hotel staff and you might simply get treated to an upgrade or a special treat on the house.
If you are the kind of couple that loves staying in, why don’t you plan a relaxed day at home complete with a movie screening? You can also treat each other to romantic spa treatments by ordering some essential oils, candles, flowers, and wine. Watching your favorite rom-com while getting a relaxing massage – now wouldn’t that be a dream date?
There are very few couples who love to cook together and if you are one of them, then you should definitely plan a kitchen date for yourselves. Head to your nearest Nature’s Basket store or just order in exotic goodies from Amazon and spend the day cooking and tasting delicacies that both of you love. After all, cooking is indeed the best therapy, isn’t it?
