So tomorrow’s the big V-day. For those who are single, that doesn’t necessarily mean V for victory, or perhaps it does? At least there’s no pressure in trying to find the perfect Valentine’s Day present, or activity.
For couples, studies have been done indicating although the traditional gifts of flowers or chocolate are appreciated by some, as it turns out (as shared on MSN’s money.com), most women, and men, would rather receive something else. No big surprises here – men overwhelmingly want electronics. And women, just as overwhelmingly, would love some jewelry. Both indicate they’d love a date night out. In a way, as the article stated, giving your loved one candy, a stuffed animal or helium balloons, is something you might give a child! Match.com actually included those traditional gifts, and also, jewelry in a ring-size box that’s not an engagement ring, in their top 10 worst Valentine’s Day gifts!
So whether you’re single, or a couple, one way around this dilemma is to go out, with friends or as a couple, and enjoy the evening! Here in Maine, we’re lucky to have many outrageously delectable places where we can dine, from clam shacks to nationally-acclaimed restaurants. Recently, Bon Appetit magazine posted a list of the top 20 most important restaurants in the U.S. One of Maine’s own, Primo, from Rockland (just up the coast), was included.
Of course another option, especially in colder climates where there are still feet of snow covering the ground, is to stay home, snuggle up with your sweetie in a cozy comforter, or silky smooth sateen sheets, like our customer favorites at Cuddledown! And if you’re single, just pop in a great movie, (preferably something fun or action-oriented, none of that mushy stuff!) and enjoy the evening. It’ll be February 15th soon enough!
