Create Million Dollar Moments, the Smart Way
Valentine’s Day is probably one of the busiest times of the year – for restaurants, hotels, and florists alike. If you’re part of the 61.8% who celebrate this occasion, here are 3 smart tips on how to create unforgettable moments with your loved ones:
- It won’t come as a surprise if your favorite restaurant has a long line on February 14th. Make sure to call ahead and book a reservation to secure your table. Leave early to beat the heavy traffic and to arrive in time to catch your reservation.
- They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. This surely goes both ways, as who doesn’t have a love for good food? Whip up dinner in your own home and prepare something personal for your loved one. Create a cozy ambience with indoor candles, or globe lights in your background for an evening picnic.
- As much as the typical Valentine’s present can make your loved one feel special, anything you create personally may give the same impact (or more!). The possibilities are endless with DIY gifts—from scrapbooks and home videos, to old school mixtapes—something you devote your time and efforts on makes this day extra memorable.
Whether it’s flowers, cards, dining out, or creating something personal for your loved ones, we’re sure you’ll find a special way to make this day worth remembering. Have any other interesting Valentine’s Day trivia or tips you’d like to share? Chime in with your comments below!
