Read on to discover Zeus’ specially curated Virtual Valentine’ Date Ideas.
1. Send her your scent to make her feel like you’re actually there
Does your lady absolutely adore when you wear Verbena Lime or maybe Sandalwood is what she loves to cozy up next to? No matter her favorite scent, why not send her a Zeus candle to set the mood and also remind her of your masculine musk. Even though she may end up missing you more, the thoughtfulness of your gift will just make your embrace that much more meaningful the next time you see your long-distance love.
2. PayPal or Venmo her and write a special caption (for her eyes only!)
Why not send your love a series of venmo payments throughout the entire day on Valentine’s Day. It’ll be like a little virtual scavenger hunt turned into real life. You can send her hints. For example, add a coffee emoji and say “your favorite latte.” Create an experience for her. Create a date that she would love if you were there. Then call her at the end and tell her you’ll recreate it in person next time you’re together and ask her what she loved the most.
3. Have a Drink Together and Relax
If you don’t already have a favorite whiskey cup, then Zeus has got you covered. Why not send her the drink details to her favorite recipe and create it together? You can create your cocktails over the phone, sit back and sip on something delicious together. Don’t be surprised if the conversation flows exceptionally well.

Advancements in technology has contributed to a quicker way of communication, and getting that text from your special someone can feel like an immediate high. But sometimes slipping back into time and penning your words onto paper can hold new meaning. When writing your thoughts, your brain is required to slow down and think. So not only will you be sharing the love with your partner, but writing your thoughts can also help you reflect on your relationship too. After you seal your sexy words, spritz her favorite Zeus scent on the letter for a finishing touch. When she opens it up, she’ll feel extra close to you.
