Valentines Day doesn’t just have to mean flowers, dinner out, and a big bill.
We think Valentines Day is about hanging out with bae and eating, drinking, and having a good time. All of which can be done at home. Here are five suggestions to get you in the mood:
Picnic in the back yard.
Think about it: this is moderate effort for maximum results. Stop in at the shops on the way home and pick up all your favourite foods - tonight is not a night to be mature - tonight is a night to give in to everything you want. Swing by your local Liquor Barons and pick up something you’ve been wanting to try for a while. Get home, set up a picnic blanket, cushions, glasses, plates, cutlery, a little vase of flowers/greenery (from the garden perhaps?) and a candle or two. Then just wait for your number one friend/lover/s to get home from work. Best. Surprise. Ever. Extra points for board games/cards <3 We suggest:
Netflix and chill.
Oldie but still a goodie; especially if you’re bingeing on really good serial. See notes from point one RE setting yourselves up right with food and drinks. Move the picnic to the lounge? We suggest:
Stay in bed.
All day. Chuck a sickie. No chores. No clothes (we mean ‘work’ clothes). Is this not the best idea ever? Refer to option 1 & 2 for nighttime plans. Champagne breakfast (in bed) to start of course. We suggest:
Chuck a party.
Yeah - with all your other non-v-day-mates. We suggest:
(buying enough so you don’t run out)
Spa Party for two.
The whole kit-and-caboodle: robes, candles, bubble bath, wine, face masks - you know, all the romantic stuff. Wait til the kids go to bed is our best suggestion yet. We suggest:
PS: All of these suggestions are adaptable to:
couples who arent into the kissy stuff
couples who ARE into the kissy stuff (use your imagination)
