LOCKDOWN LOVE: VALENTINES DAY 2021

With the restaurants closed and the reliable charms of a carefully chosen venue taken away from us many of us are looking for creative ways to make Valentines Day at home special this year. The most important part of any relationship is commitment right? So commit to a fun indoors date with the lucky person that has you in their life. Commit to the decor, commit to the gift and commit to enjoying it. 

Here’s 3 ways to lock in love at home this Valentines Day.

 

1. INDOOR PICNIC

Create a cosy candlelit picnic in February for the ultimate romantic gesture. An outdoor picnic takes a great deal of effort to pull off but with all the home comforts to hand like a fridge and heating you can't fail to have a good time inside. Chill down the Champagne to perfection, prepare a simple spread of your deli favourites, tee up your perfect playlist and light loads of candles to woo the love of your life. Simply push back the sofa or the kitchen table and lay a blanket on the floor along with as many cushions as you can find.  When you’re finished the blanket will make the perfect throw for a cozy movie night.

2. BREAKFAST IN BED

With Valentines Day falling on a Sunday this year we think this one is a real no-brainer... but make sure it’s special as this is not the time for cereal! Think ahead and the smallest gesture will go a long long way. Nip out and buy the Sunday Papers or collate a bundle of your favourite magazines. Toast some bagels with smoked salmon and cream cheese or enjoy an egg in bed with some delicious sour dough dipping soldiers. Make it fun with our breakfast sets or delight your lover with a brew in our Snoopy Love Mug.

3. CANDLELIT DINNER

Dim the lights and go crazy with candles for the most romantic night of the year. This is a real case of more is more here so save a few wine or beer bottles if you don’t have enough holders and light the room for the light of your life. Come up with a theme to give yourself extra romance points. You could go all out in one colour with candles, crockery and table linen or choose one type of food to serve. Mexican is always a fun idea, it's colourful and spicy and who doesn't love a Margarita. You can take your staple chilli to the next level with our Mexican Candle Set which makes a super cute keepsake and a great centrepiece for your efforts.
