Let’s admit, Valentine’s Day can be stressful when trying to reserve a table or book a movie when there are many couples with the same idea. Especially during the times of this pandemic, when we are uncertain what we are able to do to make things extra special for our Valentine. What if you don’t have to leave your house to make a grande gesture? Here are some ways you and your love can stay inside, away from the February chill and have a romantic evening spent with just the two of you.
Sit back, maybe pour a cocktail and relax with an at-home spa night. Perhaps share a bath together, light some candles, put on your favourite tunes and fill the tub and room with love. We can help add to the mood with all the right things for a head to toe pampering. Try our Valentine's Joy Box- Bath Bundle which includes our Lavender Bath Bomb, Lavender Bath Soak, Lavender Massage Oil and Lavender Soap. Complete the spa night with our Lavender Clay Mask for silky smooth skin. A date that will leave you both feeling refreshed and hopelessly in love.
Pair Your Food With Your Movie
Ok, hear us out… what if your cozy movie night matched with the food you were eating? For example, if you watch Disney’s Lady and the Tramp, you could make spaghetti and meatballs. It’s a unique way to pair your favourite movie with a meal or dessert that you can make at home! Here are some of our ideas:
Eat, Pray, Love: A Neapolitan pizza from the famous scene when Julia Roberts says “I’m having a relationship with my pizza.”
Julie & Julia: Julia Child’s famous Beef Bourguignon, a specialty dish that is full of flavour-as you'll see in the movie!
Ratatouille: Just like the name of the movie suggests, try making Remi’s Ratatouille. This would be a great idea for a family movie night, but who are we kidding… Disney movies are for adults too!
Turn Out All the Lights
Add a romantic ambiance, turn off all the lights and lite some candles. Have a candle lit dinner, play a board game, read some poetry… what ever you decide the atmosphere will set the mood. Use our New "Love" Soy Candle to add a calming romantic fragrance.
Bake a Dessert Together
Valentine’s day without something sweet is like chocolate cake without the chocolate! Why not turn the dessert-making into the date? It’s a great way to connect and work together. We have many different dessert recipes here to inspire you, so turn on some tunes and get baking!
Build a Fort
Bring out your inner child and build a fort in your living room made up of blankets, sheets and pillows. Get the popcorn out and create a cozy little cave that's perfect for watching movies or playing a board game. Not to mention how playful it can be!
