Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and if you’re anything like me, you haven’t planned a single thing yet! It’s fine. This romantic day is about spending time with the one you love most and showing them exactly how special they are. I can’t think of any better way to do that then with a picnic!
Now I know what you’re thinking, “Chris, a picnic in the middle of February! Are you insane?” No, I’m not! I just like to think outside of the picnic basket. Why not move that picnic indoors? Your apartment might not have the great view of a park but the sentiment will mean a lot. Plus, you won’t have to worry about any ants crawling all over the place.
Clear out some space in your apartment and lay down a blanket and some pillows. You might as well get as comfortable as possible since you are inside. Fill a picnic basket with all of your favorites. You can craft a nice cheese plate, cut up some fresh fruit, buy some chocolates and drink red wine all while staying warm. If you play an instrument, I highly suggest composing a love song and performing it!
Just remember that Valentine’s Day is a time to show your loved one how much you care. Filling the picnic basket with their favorite things does just that. If you can incorporate items that are unique to the two of you, they’ll swoon for you all over again!
