The ancient feast of St. Valentine has evolved into a celebration of love and affection, which is celebrated all over the world. Of course, there are the usual gifts: cards, chocolates, and flowers… but why not get creative this Valentine’s Day? Whether you are giving yourself some extra love or showering a partner with affection this year, use the day as an opportunity to take pampering to the next level!
Put the “I” in Indulge
What do you LOVE to do? Do it! Take yourself out to the movies. Buy your favorite bottle of wine and enjoy a glass while soaking in the bathtub. Dim the lights. Light some candles. Take yourself on a solo getaway. It doesn’t have to be far. Go somewhere peaceful. Or if you love entertainment, go see a show or ballet. If you’d rather stay home, go for it! Cook yourself a lavish dinner, dance around the house, or sing yourself a love song. Whatever you do, just make it personal!
Before you take your sweetie on a special date, consider a romantic photoshoot at one of these locations, first:
- Historic street
- Roof of a tall city building with a view
- Beach or dock on the lake
- Grove of trees
- Rustic barn
- Under a lit vintage streetlamp
- By the fireplace
Choose your favorite photos from the day and get them printed on PhotoSquares to make Valentine’s Day last all year!
Think Outside the Box
Don’t get bogged down by the pressure of Valentine’s Day to come up with the perfect date! Consider mixing it up with one of these:
- Repeat your first date
- Ice skating and hot chocolate
- Burlesque show
- Ghost tour with a brew or wine crawl
- Spa day for two
- Comedy club
- Museum – see if any are offering live music, wine, or hors d’oeuvres!
Regardless of how or who you celebrate with, we wish you a day full of love and creativity!
