1. Romantic Hot Spots at Home
Find a romantic spot within your home to romance away the evening. Dress up the spot with candles and flowers and/or plan what special activity you can do there together. It could be sipping wine, watching a movie, cooking together or anything else you truly enjoy doing with your partner. If you are married and have kids, just lounging together and talking about ‘non serious’ stuff is in itself a great thing to do on Valentine’s Day.
Finding a romance spot right at home also gives you the luxury of ‘not having to drive back‘ after a fun and relaxing hour.
Our top favorite romantic spots within the home are:
Bath Tub or Jacuzzi
The bathroom is the perfect place for a romantic rendezvous. Create a comfortable warm temperature. Light a few candles, put on romantic music and make a bath ready. Use rose petals and soft fragrant bubble bath depending on your mood. Invite your lover in by a trail of rose petals.
Especially in the colder months, and during cool nights, the fireplace is an excellent place for a romantic date. For added ambience, place candles around the open fire, spreads a soft blanket and put out your favorite treats to nibble. Share a glass of wine, cuddling together, talking together or play a game.
An often overlooked romantic hot spot is your own bedroom. Since it is your own bedroom, it gives an immediate sense of confidence and is the perfect place for a relaxed, sensual evening. Use luxurious linens, lit the room with candles and turn romantic music. Alternatively, you could watch a romantic movie or give massages.
Under the Stars
Head out in the garden or on the balcony, if you have one, and get cozy with your partner inside a warm blanket watching stars and sipping wine.
Your attic can be a romantic hideaway. Hang some paintings on the walls, prop a mattress on the floor with lots of pillows and a soft blanket and you are ready for a secret rendezvous with your Valentine.
Good food and romance go hand in hand, so it is no surprise that the kitchen is a part of this list for romantic hot spots. Have a romantic cookout together and then enjoy the prepared meal right in the kitchen.
