February is a cold and dreary month. It’s smack-dab in the middle of the winter season, and most people are eagerly anticipating the arrival of spring. But there’s one day in February that most people look forward to, and that’s Valentine’s Day. Whether you celebrate it with a partner or on your own, it’s the one day out of the year devoted entirely to love.
Some people give it a bad rap because of the corny greeting cards and clichéd TV commercials. But if you peel off those cheesy layers, underneath you’ll find a holiday focused on the importance of not just reciprocal love but also kindness and compassion. It’s an opportunity to show your partner how much you appreciate them with a unique, customized gift. And, it’s not just a day for relationships. If you’re single this Valentine’s, celebrate self-love and treat yourself to something special.
This Valentine’s Day looks a little different than it did last year. Most people are stuck inside the house waiting out the lockdown restrictions. Since you’re probably spending most of your time inside the house, we’ve created a list of at-home-friendly Valentine’s Day gift ideas for you or your loved one.
A Stellar TV Package
Have you exhausted your online streaming accounts and are bored with what’s on there? Have you ever considered adding satellite television to your entertainment viewing mix? You can find satellite TV packages in Ontario that have significantly more content to watch than the average online streaming platform. Treat yourself or your special someone to a satellite package full of the best channels, customized to your interests and lifestyle. For example, are you a sports nut? You could enjoy a cozy Valentine’s night watching all your favourite NBA games snuggling with your other half.
An Organic Wine or Beer Delivery
You head to the liquor store to choose the perfect wine for Valentine’s Day. You stroll down the aisles, searching for something exciting to pair with the dinner you’ve been preparing all day. But you don't see anything eye-catching. You want something new. Did you know that you could order unique wines, beers, and ciders from organic wineries and breweries all over the province? If you love exploring all sorts of beverages and are interested in organic products, a delivery from a natural winery or brewery might be the perfect Valentine's Day gift.
A Personal Spa Night
Sometimes the best gifts are the pampering kind. Run yourself a hot bath, put on a cleansing facial mask, and relax. A little bit of self-care can go a long way, especially when you’re cooped up inside in the middle of winter. After your bath, indulge your senses even further and order from your favourite take-out restaurant.
You may not have the chance to go to a fancy restaurant or the movies this Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. With some new TV to watch, delicious wine and beer, or a night devoted to self-care, you’ll have a special night to remember for years to come.
