As kids, our Valentine’s Day traditions used to be small gifts from our parents, heart shaped chocolates, and cinnamon candy – good old times! As we got older, the meaning of this holiday has changed slightly but remains the perfect occasion to show our appreciation to our loved ones. Love day is not only for couples !
A little sad that you will be spending the day at home this year ? We got you covered with many original ideas that will make this day special and memorable. After all, it’s all about the little things in life, right ?
1| Order from your favorite local restaurant, have dinner in the living room, and put on a good movie ! It’s a great way to support local businesses and have a treat at the same time!
2| Have a spa day at home – with your significant other, a friend or a family member, or why not do a video call with your besties ? Relaxation music, your favorite essential oil and a series of your favorite skin care products will make the perfect “me time” !
