Love on the Road: Seven Ways Professional Drivers Can Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Post Date - Feb 14, 2024

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and while many people are planning romantic dinners or cozy evenings at home, professional drivers may find themselves navigating highways and byways and in need of unique ways to celebrate. Being on the road doesn't mean you have to miss out on the love and connection this special day represents! Here are seven creative ways you can celebrate while out on the road!

Bring Your Loved One Along

If you're lucky enough to have your spouse as your rider, take advantage of it! Averitt's rider policy allows spouses to accompany drivers. This not only provides companionship but also turns your journey into a shared adventure. Explore new places together, make memories, and create your own unique Valentine's Day celebration on the road.

Schedule Virtual Dates

Plan a virtual Valentine's Day date with your loved one. Set up video calls to share a meal, open gifts, or simply spend some quality time together. Technology can bridge the physical distance and make your loved one feel closer, even if you're miles apart.

Treat Yourself

Valentine’s Day isn’t just about spoiling others – it's also a day to spoil yourself! Consider indulging in a Valentine's Day candy haul of your favorite treats. Celebrating a day late on February 15 can score you some fantastic discounts! Turn your cab into a candy wonderland, pair it with your favorite movie or book, and savor the joy of self-love with each sweet bite. After all, you deserve a celebration that's as sweet as the candies themselves.

Send Surprise Voice Messages
Surprise voice messages can add a touch of warmth and affection to your loved one’s day. Imagine the joy of unexpectedly finding a heartfelt message amidst the day's routine or a burst of laughter from a shared joke! These surprise voice messages not only bridge the physical distance but also serve as a reminder of the emotional connection between you and your loved one.

Make a Playlist of Love

Curate a special Valentine's Day playlist with your favorite love songs. Let the music accompany you on your journey and bring a touch of romance and happiness to the highway. If you have someone special you’d like to share the music with, consider using Spotify to create a Blend or joint playlist where you can both add songs! This is a great way to share your presence with the people you love!

Send Some Snail Mail

In a world dominated by digital communication, there's a unique charm in sending snail mail. Take a moment to craft a heartfelt letter to your loved ones, letting them know that you’re thinking of them. Be sure to drop this in the mail ahead of time, so it delivers around Valentine’s Day! Go the extra mile and include a postcard from wherever you are to help bridge the gap of physical distance!

Celebrate Once You Get Home

True love waits! Plan a surprise for your loved one with a belated Valentine's Day celebration, turning the delay into an opportunity to extend the joy. Maybe it's a weekend getaway, a cozy dinner, or a special gesture that arrives after the traditional date, making the wait worthwhile and the celebration even more memorable.
