Floral Brunch in Bed
On Valentine’s Day, the killer crowds at the restaurants can kill the mood real fast. So why not just stay home? All you need to start when it comes to Valentine’s Day ideas for her is a bouquet of roses and some champagne! There really isn’t anything more fun and romantic than being brought breakfast in bed and sprinkled in rose petals.
That’s not all you can do with roses. When you are serving her blushing rose mimosas, your honey is going to be blushing her way through the day. Brunch isn’t complete without a delicious stack of pancakes, and with the French lavender and honey pancakes, you both with be full and relaxed. Who knows what could happen when your Valentine’s Day meal starts in bed.
At Home Spa Night
A day at the spa can be expensive, and getting a reservation on Valentine’s Day can be tough. Don’t bother fighting the crowds; create your own spa night right in the comfort of your own home! It’s intimate, and you and your boo will be working together to show each other how much you really love each other, and isn’t that the spirit of Valentine’s Day?
Start the night by pouring each other a glass of bubbly and lighting some candles. Get cuddled up with your boo and put on a DIY floral face mask, like this one. Valentine’s Day flowers don’t just look pretty! The roses that are so popular on Valentine’s Day also pack a punch when it comes to skincare, too. Roses contain vitamins and a bunch of anti-inflammatory properties for the skin, so go ahead and pour yourself another glass of champagne and let the roses do some work.
After you rinse off the face mask, take turns giving each other full body massages with one of the floral-infused soothing body oils like these ones on Live Simply. These buddies smell good and are packed full of Vitamin E, so you and your bae will be simply glowing after your at-home spa night.
