Valentine's Day is just a couple of weeks away and now is the time to start planning that perfect eve with your special someone. Now what many people fail to realize is that it's not really about the gift or how much you spend on it. Valentine's Day is all about showing how much you love someone and there are so many ways to do that so today I've partnered once again with Pine Mountain?to share some?Valentine's Day ideas for a perfect date night.
I've personally never been one who wants to go out on Valentine's Day. With so many other people celebrating, places are just crowded and I don't really see what's so special about celebrating with a bunch of strangers. So these Valentine's Day ideas focus all around staying in - whether it be at home, your partner's house or even a hotel room.
Valentine's Day Ideas for a perfect date night
Ambiance is obviously important for a romantic evening so pay special attention and detail to setting the mood. Turn on some soft music, then light some candles and a fire. I actually prefer to use Pine Mountain Firelogs for date nights like this so that we don't have to worry about tending the fire and can focus on our evening together instead. They offer 4 traditional firelogs (in 2-4 hour burning increments) and 4 specialty firelogs including American Home Firelog, and Crackle.
What I especially love about Pine Mountain Firelogs is that they are crafted from real hardwoods and easy to light with no mess. They're seriously effortless and?are perfect for evenings when you want to relax or focus on anything but constantly keeping the fire stoked. Pine Mountain Firelogs produce 75% less particulate matter* and up to 80% less carbon monoxide* than ordinary cordwood because they're clean burning.
Make?the evening special
Prior to the evening, grab a bottle of champagne or sparkling cider to celebrate, along with a couple of glasses and a box of chocolates or your Valentine's favorite treat. Little details like this go a long way so if there is something specific that he or she fancies, go for it.
There's nothing better than being comfortable during a date night so throw down a blanket right next to the fire and add some pillows. There's nothing more romantic than snuggling by the fire!
It's all about the food
Food plays an important role in everything we do and you surely don't want your Valentine to be hungry while you're trying to woo them. There are many options like cooking a delicious homemade dinner ordering out. Just make sure you consider food a priority because nothing ruins a romantic evening like a growling belly!
Have a backup plan
Always go into everything with a backup plan so just in case the evening doesn't go exactly as you had it laid out in your head, have a movie or game ready to go.
I sure hope that these tips help you plan the perfect Valentine's Day with your love. I'd love to hear some of your tips too!
