The most romantic day of the year is also the one day of the year that restaurants are always over-crowded, over-booked, and over-priced. A better option for the special day is to stay at home instead. You can make your stay-at-home date even more special than going out. Impress your Valentine with date night in this year! Here are a few tips on how to pull it off.
1. Wine + Dinner
Whatever you do, do not forget the wine! Depending on what’s for dinner, try to pair the wine with the food. Serve your wine in unique personalized wine glasses for a special touch. For dinner, choose a recipe that isn’t too difficult but also something that will impress! Pasta is a good option. It doesn’t take too long to cook, and there are plenty of easy and yummy recipes to try out.
Instead of going to the movie theatre and spending an outrageous amount of money on tickets and concession stand food, you can usually find good movies on TV or cable on Valentine’s Day. Or if you have Netflix, you can choose what movie you want to watch. If you want to keep it lighthearted, go with a romantic comedy. If you want an excuse to cuddle, choose an action/thriller or horror!
3. Games + Picnic by the Fire
What’s more romantic than cuddling by a fireplace? Grab that wine, some small finger foods, a couple of board games and stay warm by the fire. Try Monopoly or Scrabble.
The Pink and White Rose Soaps are perfect for bathtime. If you want to turn up the romance, draw a bath with these fragrant soaps. Put the soap in the bath and pull some of the petals off for a romantic pampering experience.
The most classic sign of love is a carved heart on a tree. Personalize an ornament, mug or Valentine card with your and your love’s name. This forever keepsake can be personalized for you and your valentine.
