Here are the three stages of a blissful Valentine’s Day at home
Love is easy to celebrate. After all, as Mark Twain once said, “To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.” So, who are you dividing your joy with this Valentine’s Day? If you feel the joy, but you’re not so sure how to express it, we have a plan for you. And you won’t even need to leave home to carry it out!
First, it might interest you to know that 39% of people would prefer to celebrate Valentine’s Day with an experience. But also…Valentine’s Day is the second-busiest day of the year for restaurants, making it a stressful occasion for going out. What’s the solution? Well, why not create an unforgettable experience at home for your sweetheart?
This is our tried, tested, and true three-stage plan for creating a truly beautiful Valentine’s Day experience—no reservations required. (And you only need to order these local gift baskets to prepare: one for cheese and charcuterie, and one for the spa experience.)
First, enjoy delicious local charcuterie
How does cheese, charcuterie, condiments, gourmet crackers, preserves, honey, and chocolates sound? What if they were all sourced from artisans living in Vancouver and nearby, adding a touch of local pride to your intimate meal? Add wine or sparkling wine to this local gift basket and you’ll have everything you need to set the mood. (In fact, you can add wine or sparkling wine to any of our gift baskets; you never know when you might need to dial up the celebration.)
Next, make it a spa night
Light an all-natural, locally made Hygge candle, draw a bath, and let your sweetheart enjoy a transformative soak. We have taken the guesswork out of creating a genuinely divine spa experience with this local gift basket. Use the Bath Soak to amplify the comfort. Use the French Lavender Scrub to rub your loved one’s back and feet. And serve them a hot cup of Lemon Ginger tea with Wildflower Honey to help them ground and relax while they unwind in the water.
Finally, enjoy closeness in a magical environment
Did you know that herbaceous, woody aromas can lift our moods during dark winter months? Bring a little of the medicinal outdoors into your home by spritzing your sheets with a fir-scented spray. (Don’t worry, it’s included in the wellness gift you ordered for the spa!) Move your Hygge candle to this uplifting, magical zone, and simply enjoy being together. You can use your Happy Ending Salve to massage your sweetie and complete the pampering spa experience you started with the bath. And the rest is up to the two of you!
This is an experience that trumps any hectic night out, providing for real intimacy and no stress whatsoever. And the fact that everything you need to make it happen can be delivered to your door doesn’t hurt. Love is the most important thing in the world—it’s worth celebrating. Do it right this year and show the one you love the most how much they mean to you.
