Have you left it too late to book an extravagant trip for Valentine’s Day? Or maybe, you don’t have the funds to splash out on a romantic weekend away. Whatever reason there may be for your lack of Valentine plans, don’t fret! If you are going to spending your Valentine’s Night in with your loved on this year, then why not bring the romantic weekend home with a Rome-antic night in?
Personally, I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. I never have been. But, I am a fan of cosy nights at home with my partner. I would much rather spend a night in together than spend it at a club. So, when eShores kindly gifted me a hamper so I could create my very own Rome-antic night in I just knew that it was my idea of a perfect night.
Enjoying a Romantic Night In
As much as I love traveling, sometimes it just isn’t possible. And that’s okay too. Instead of feeling glum that you aren’t jetting off somewhere new and exciting, use that time to make new memories from the comfort of your own home. Whilst you’re at it, you can also get planning those future adventures.
Priced from as little as £438, eShores offer Multi-Centre holidays allowing you to tick off more than one dream-destination in one trip away. Their newest arrival is known as the Ultimate Romantic Holiday as it stops off at Venice, Rome and Paris over a 10-day trip. With travel and hotels included, it takes the stress out of planning your holiday. All you’ve got to do is pick a date, get saving those pennies and start making a list of all the best brunch places to visit – an absolute must-do for any holiday, am I right?
The Perfect Pasta Dish for a Date Night at Home
Whilst I’m busy saving my money to do work on my house, I’ll be swapping the romantic European break for a cosy night in. We started the night by breaking open the amazing hamper from eShores and whipping up a delicious pasta dish. I always enjoy nights spent cooking together. Talking about everything and anything whilst we share the duties of cooking and cleaning definitely beats nights spent cooking for one.
Of course, a generous bowl of pasta isn’t complete without a helping of garlic bread or copious amounts of parmesan. The best part about eating home-cooked Italian food? You can’t be judged for using half a block of parmesan cheese on top of your pasta dish.
Watching Movies by the Fire
After our tummies were filled with all the beautiful carbs, we retreated to the front room to light the fire and hunker down for the evening. Installing the log burner is potentially one of the best things I ever did and I’m seriously going to miss it when I move house. I just hope whoever lives here after me loves my log burner even half as much as I do.
Lighting the fire is a must for a romantic evening at home. There’s just something about the flickering flames and glowing embers of a fire that increases the cosy factor of any night in. Once the fire was stoked, we popped dessert in the oven and chose a film to watch on Netflix.
I’m a sucker for a cosy night in so, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect, relaxed night in. Especially after having a busy day together. We were able to go over some important decisions that cropped up from earlier in the day then break off for some more lighthearted chit-chat and laughter, simply enjoying each others company.
The Importance of Romantic Nights In
Creating time for a night in together, means you don’t get distracted by life-admin or any other little bits and bobs on your to-do list. Instead, it gives you the opportunity to truly spend some quality time in each other’s company. That quality time is something that, honestly, I don’t think enough couples do. Spending quality time together and having meaningful conversations is so important to the health of any relationship. So, whether you’re planning on jetting away this Valentine’s or simply enjoy a night at home together, make sure you spend it free from distraction.
As much as I would love to be going away, a night in suits me just fine. Even more so, knowing that we’ve booked to go back to North Star Club in Yorkshire in a few weeks for a few nights of off-grid exploration and relaxation.
What are you plans for Valentine’s Day? Or, if like me, you aren’t a huge V Day fan, what will you be doing instead?
