So this morning over coffee we listed our top ten ideas for celebrating what love means to you!
1. A Romantic Get-away
Obviously this was our first pick....a beautiful candle lit meal, followed by a luxurious bubble bath and a lovely drink. A delicious cooked breakfast, followed by his and hers massages in your suite, relaxing walks around the French Country House farm lost in conversation... bliss!
2. Write a Love letter
A great gift doesn't have to be flamboyant or expensive- but it does have to be creative! Use your own conversational style, pick up a pen and write whatever comes to mind...
3. Chocolate and Wine
They say with a bottle of fine wine and some exquisite chocolate at your side there is no heart you cannot conquer. Enough said!
Explore your local Park or Beach, pack a picnic or pick up take out from their favourite restaurant. Phones away, relax, reconnect and take in that sunset.
5. Stay in
What about an indoor picnic? Serve dinner on a blanket on the living room floor, light some candles and turn on your favourite music. To make it interesting what about an ethnic cuisine, or perhaps a breakfast spread!
6. Movies with a twist
Instead of haggling over a genre, leave it to chance! Close your eyes and pick - make sure you both agree to honor your choice!
7. Making memories
Be daring and create a new memory together, go rock climbing, book a bungee jump or sky dive!
8. Mystery trips are for all ages
Put aside a day or two and take a trip to nowhere in particular together! Just get in the car and drive.
9. It feels good to give!
Spend some time volunteering for a cause you both support. Helping others can be a great way to spend time together and do some good in the process!
10. Give a gift
Oscar Wilde once said 'With freedom, books, flowers and the moon, who could not be happy?' So considering this, a first edition of their favorite book, a posy of flowers you picked, or an evening out star gazing at the local Observatory.
Happy Valentines, Love the French Country House
