Some of the most romantic evenings happen when you’re just staying at home. This doesn’t mean watching Netflix and falling asleep at 9 like you do most weekends; it means putting in a little extra effort without breaking the bank. Here are a few great ways to spend some time together, enjoying your spa, and celebrating the most romantic night of the year:
Lights & Candles
Odds are you won’t be celebrating in the middle of the day, so instead of turning a spotlight on, create softer, more romantic lighting with candles and fairy lights. Candle are always a go-to for special occasions, but the addition of fairy lights (Christmas lights’ more delicate cousin) will really set the mood.
Rose petals are a delicate way to add the quintessential colors of love to your evening. Choose the colors that express your feelings best—red for passion, pink for admiration and joy, white for purity, and so on. Fill vases with whole roses or scatter the petals in and around the spa for the full Valentine’s Day effect.
Refreshments & Food
What’s a romantic evening without something to eat and drink? Grab your favorite special-occasion foods—Oysters? Chocolate-covered strawberries?—and some Champagne or wine and spend the night talking, dining, and enjoying each other’s company.
Do you and your partner have a song? Play it! Create your own special soundtrack to back your evening. Show them how much you care with songs that are special to you or convey how you feel about them. Artists like Frank Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack are great choices if you’re not sure what to play.
