Going out on Valentine’s Day can be a bit much. First, you battle to get a reservation. Then, if you’re successful, to spend a lot of money on a prix fixe menu to sit in a red and pink confetti-decorated restaurant where a jazz singer is inevitably (and poorly) crooning Frank Sinatra songs. What happened to romance?
When we put our heads together to create the perfect collection for a date night in, it was clear that everyone loved the idea. But it was also quickly evident that there were different...needs. Those of us who only recently began dating were looking for a fun alternative to an awkward conversation at a fancy restaurant... Those of us with young children (or no babysitters) wanted a romantic getaway in our living rooms.... Those of us who are simply busy and over-worked were looking for a tasty way to surprise our partners.
No matter what stage you're in, we've got you covered.
Picture this: A spread of rosemary and lemon crackers, salty olive-Parmesan tapenade and fig jam to greet you at the door, white truffle popcorn ready by the couch for movie-watching, a bottle of red wine breathing in the kitchen, and a Tub of Love Hazelnut Spread whispering sweet nothings in the dark. Sigh.
Yes, whether you're looking to win over someone new or surprise your steady, the way to their heart remains via their stomach and these snacks will have anyone swooning. Now the only real question left is: "Casablanca" or "The Notebook"?
