It’s easy to get side-tracked by lockdown and think we have to write off Valentines this year. NOT TRUE. Here are some of our favourite ideas, all tried and tested!
Marathon movie weekend – each pick your top five and work through them. Chill out on the sofa, get a grab bag of sweets or pop-corn and ENJOY
Breakfast in bed – why not? It’s a Sunday this year so we can all slow down and enjoy our fave lazy breakfast lolling around. We have smoked salmon, bagels & cream cheese with a cheeky flute of Bucks Fizz and we re-watch our wedding DVD or look through the album when we renewed our vows in Cyprus just before we started TEMPLESPA. (Then we ‘de-crumb’ the bed!!!).
Themed dinner & movie – pick your favourite movie, each play a part and see how many lines you can remember. Pretty Woman is a good one, but without the escargot!
Venture outside – if you have a firepit even better, if you don’t, buy some Kilner Jar style solar lights (Amazon have loads), but do get out on the patio, lay rugs on the chairs, pop on your docking station, toast some marshmallows have mugs of hot chocolate and snuggle under a blanket. Go on, live dangerously!
Make supper special – we tend to make life easy and set up our coffee table with candles and everything so we can sit on floor cushions and kick back. A long wooden platter with cheese & charcuterie, tapas & Cava, Antipasti & Prosecco, Champagne & Canapes, just starters & desserts, cupcakes & pink fizz, seafood platter, all pink cocktails (there’s loads on the web – alcoholic/alcohol free), heart shaped pizza, chocolate dipped strawberries…we’ve done them all! We are loving Thomson & Scott Noughty, it’s an alcohol free sparkling organic chardonnay and is delicious.
A Spa Date – so you can’t get to the spa? Let the spa come to you. This is our speciality in TEMPLESPA. Grab one of our perfect gifts DO NOT DISTURB or SPA RETREAT and re-create a spa in your own space. Download The Repose Suite our beautiful spa sounds album and it will help you get into the mood. Another lovely idea is to indulge in our best-selling bathing & massage oil DRIFT AWAY and give it with a LOVE TOKEN the promise of a bespoke massage!
