Seven Memorable Valentine’s Day Activities
Send Bright Blooms
Passion, friendship, gratitude, and of course romance, are all represented by beautifully colored roses. Why not share this floral love with the people closest to your heart this Valentine’s Day? Coordinate a surprise for your sweetheart, neighbors, best friend, or anyone who might need extra love this year. Bright blooms like out, “Moonstruck Mercury Bouquet” are perfect for the job.
Cook a Gourmet Meal
A favorite Valentine’s Day tradition is having a candlelight dinner together at a romantic restaurant. If you’re having an at-home date this year, don’t disregard this special experience, but add a fun twist to it. Spend the day with your Valentine in the kitchen cooking up gourmet entrees and wonderful desserts. No stressful reservations required.
Set a Romantic Picnic Inside
Create the perfect ambiance full of romance for a special picnic in the living room. Light candles, dim the lights, and add fresh flowers to the mix while you enjoy your favorite entrees and wines. A cozy night-in makes it easy to forget about dinner reservations or crowded restaurants. After dinner, enjoy assorted chocolates or rich homemade sweets on the couch.
Enjoy a Spa Day
Nothing says “self-love” like a relaxing day full of “me-time.” Bask in a silent home or play your favorite relaxing music to set the tone. Light your best fragrant candles and put on something warm and cozy. Enjoy a clay mask, take a soothing bath with essential oils, and paint your nails. Pamper yourself this Valentine’s Day with your own spa day.
Play Board Games
Acting like a child is fun, but letting out your inner six-year-old self with your Valentine is even better. Find yourselves laughing and giggling the day away as you play your favorite board games from your childhood. You can even sit on the floor like you used to while you have a little Valentine’s Day competition.
Deliver Homemade Gifts
Share the love this year with handmade gifts. If creative projects and arts and crafts are your things, get lost in this space today and feel good about it. Arrange a few special deliveries to local hospitals, nursing homes, or other neighborhood organizations, and brighten their day with your masterpieces.
Go For a Sweet Stroll
Although you’re celebrating from home, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t get some fresh air, too. After dinner, prepare warm cocktails, hot tea, or coffee, and enjoy a romantic stroll through your neighborhood. Since you’ll be out in the evening, see if you can catch a glimpse of the perfect sunset or glistening night sky.
With a slew of romantic ideas, Cupid’s arrow can’t be too far away from your love. In the meantime, enjoy sweet flowers from Mancuso’s Florist to set the mood and light your flame. Love is surely in the air this year.
