Expressing your love doesn't have to be done through grand or extravagant gestures. In today’s fast-paced and plugged-in world, being present with your significant other and spending quality time together is probably the most cherished Valentine's Day gift you can give. Here are a few ways you can design impactful moments to relax and connect with your beloved this Valentine’s Day:
Enjoy a thoughtful home-cooked meal
Whether you plan on whipping up your signature dish or experimenting with a new recipe, be sure to create a table setting that’s warm and inviting to foster meaningful conversations with your number one as you feast upon your culinary creation.
Simply drape a fine European linen tablecloth by The Alfred Collection over your table for a touch of warm elegance, and dare to step away from conventional tableware by choosing unique ethically-made artisan pieces.
Complete your table arrangement with a floral centerpiece: Opt for a simple vase, for instance by repurposing Skagerak’s sustainably made Nordic Jug or a porcelain carafe by Ignorance is Bliss, which is stylishly glazed with recycled metal waste.
Unwind with a cozy night in
Stay in this Valentine's Day and spoil your sweetheart with a peaceful and undisturbed evening at home.
Put soft background music on, light a few candles or lanterns, and prepare a few tasty snacks to nibble on with their favorite wine. Then serve using a sleek, responsibly made Edge Brass Plate by Skagerak for eye-catching appeal. When you’re ready to settle in for the evening, curl up on the sofa together, grab a snug blanket and pillows, and get cozy while watching classics.
Handwoven from delightfully soft mohair and extra-fine wool, the colorful handwoven Matisse throw by Ezcaray is perfect for snuggling up.
Whisk your loved one away for a romantic escape
If your sweetheart is longing for a change of scenery, why not surprise them with a relaxing getaway à deux! Whether you’re headed for the slopes, a seaside location or a new city, pack up eco-friendly personal care essentials that you can slip into your carry-on and share.
Handmade with 100% natural ingredients, the Cleanse, Exfoliate & Moisturise Gift Set by eco-conscious skincare brand Haeckels is just the perfect size for a weekend trip. Its pared-down combination of exfoliating bar soap, facial cleanser, and moisturizer is all you’ll need to keep your skin looking healthy.
Besides, packing a Goodee Hoodie is always a good idea! Responsibly crafted in collaboration with ethical fashion brand Kotn, this ultra-soft piece in authentic Egyptian cotton is a tried-and-true wardrobe staple you’ll both want to wear all weekend long.
