These Stay-In V-Day Date Ideas Are As Romantic As It Gets (If You Do Them Right)
So you want to pull off the most romantic Valentine’s Day surprise amid the lockdown. Easier said than done—but not at all impossible. You just have to let the gesture speak for itself, which you can certainly do while staying in (and safe).
Let GCash and its new app feature GLife help you plan a successful, socially-distanced date night. Here, you can buy gifts and order date essentials from the app’s trusted merchants. To pull off a grand gesture for your S.O., check out our recommended ideas using GLife and GCash below:
Rent their favorite rom-com movie
Giving them what they want, when they want it, will blow their mind. See for yourself when you rent their all-time favorite Valentine’s Day movie on the 14th, via GMovies. What’s great about this is how you can skip the cinema and get on with your romantic movie date night at home.
Prepare a V-Day spread—wine included
Want to impress your S.O. but have limited resources? You can never go wrong with a classic candlelit dinner—in this case, a DIY dinner. Think of a special dish you shared and recreate it in your kitchen. Of course, don’t forget to order a fine bottle of wine that will complement your meal on Boozy.
Exchange unique gifts
Skip the bouquets and chocolates this year and get your special someone an experiential gift they can benefit from. Check out Gawin's home maintenance services on GLife and choose house cleaning, aircon repair, plumbing, electrical wiring, among others, Any of these can make your S.O.’s life easier at home (a huge bonus if their love language is Acts of Service). You can also pamper their locks with a haircare kit and a free online hair consultation from HairMNL.
Send heartfelt messages with a twist
Save the best for last: Express your love for each other by sending a message from the heart, with a twist. And by that, we mean the gift you least expect to give and receive: cash. With the Send With a Clip feature from GCash, you can give each other cash from your respective GCash funds, add a V-day message, and attach a photo, video, or voice recording. Talk about a practical and romantic gift in one.
To send with a clip, login to your GCash App and tap “Send Money” on your dashboard. Tap "Send with a Clip" and select the type of media you want to attach. Upload your selected file or take a photo, video, or voice recording directly from the app. After that, input all the necessary info on the field provided and review the details before sending. The money sent with a clip will expire after 72 hours upon receipt so be sure to claim it before then.
