With Valentine’s Day a week away we wanted to help all of you ladies and gents celebrate your love for one another. Much like any other special day of the year there are two ways to celebrate, flowers, chocolate and dinner OR the one that includes some extra effort. We chose the latter but don’t worry we will walk you through each one.
We aren’t saying scrap out the flowers we actually think it’s still a MUST, but be creative ask the designer to create something unique. Instead of a dozen red roses, incorporate his or her favourite colors, flowers, or scents. Include some crafty banners or custom balloons – which are all the rage these days! These can be made using craft items at your local craft store or ordered from your local balloon designer.
Every occasion requires a card but not a standard Hallmark card. Pick up a valentine’s card from your local stationery boutique/papery shop and write from the heart.
If you normally eat at home and cook dinner together than this would be a good opportunity to make reservations at a local restaurant and glam up for a change or if you’re covid conscious, order take-out and pull out your finest dinnerware. If you normally eat out, this is a great day to find a recipe online, pick up the ingredients and cook a meal together. Don’t forget to pick out a playlist and light some candles for ambience.
Instead of purchasing a cake from the grocery store, check out your local baker’s Valentine’s Day menu. You’ll find everything from a box of macrons, custom cookies to mini heart cakes.
By the time you have done some or all of the above we bet a gift is not required. After all, our greatest memories are made up of our experiences.
