Americans LOVE to share the love. The average American is set to spend a record-breaking $196.31 for Valentine’s Day this year, contributing to the $27 billion of spending that goes into celebrating the holiday. But why not save some money and celebrate love from the comfort of your home?
Here’s everything you need for a romantic Valentine’s Date-in.
Pick up a special arrangement for your special someone at a local florist Valentine’s Day is for all things sweet. Stop by a local shop like Norfolk Florist or Black Iris Florist for a sweet-smelling bouquet of flowers sure to make anyone blush. Not into flowers? Check out this candy basket for your sweetheart instead.
Prepare a deliciously simple home-cooked meal together On this day of love, a dinner at home is anything but ordinary. With the right touch, making dinner together can be more interactive and romantic than dining out. Try making a heart-shaped-pizza for a new take on an old classic. Not trying to get your hands dirty? U.S. News has a list of Valentine’s Day freebies and restaurant deals – and several with to-go options.
End the night with a movie When life gets in the way, it’s important to set aside time to just enjoy each other’s company. First, set the mood with smart home tech. With just the touch of a button you can dim the lights, lock the doors and turn down the temperature – perfect for cuddling on the couch. By using Movies on Demand or streaming TV apps, you can get access to all the best rom-coms with your significant other.
You don’t need all the bells and whistles to show your loved ones how much you care. With the right people around you, love is all you need.
