Sweetest Day tipsHave your love delivered

It might sound cliché, but it’s still true: A gorgeous bouquet delivered straight to your loved one’s door is a sure fire way to set the mood for a romantic Sweetest Day!  This move isn’t just for the men – Ladies, get in on the action by sending a single long stem rose to your sweetheart, along with a romantic card, and watch the sparks fly!

Cook up some romance

Why not celebrate with dinner in and avoid the crowds? Cooking dinner together and trying out new or exotic dishes can be a fun, and relationship building, activity.  Share a bottle of wine, light some candles, and serve up a romantic dinner for two from your own kitchen. For inspiration, check out the great deals and recipes at Jungle Jim’s International Market.

Choose wisely

Go for nostalgia and plan a date at the first place you ever met, your first date night destination, the spot where you shared your first kiss, etc. You’ll definitely get points with your special someone, and you can build on that idea by including a special song, flowers, or activities to help you celebrate.

The Written Word

It will add a sparkle to your sweetheart’s eye!Sweetest Day Gift Tips
