Imagine, for a moment, a brass lock. Think of the curvature of the shackle, the smoothness of the outer case, and the jagged, yet familiar keyhole. The inner complexities are hidden to the outside world, but somewhere there exists a key—a perfect match that releases the pins and opens up the lock.
Its a romantic notion, that there exists, out in the wide world around us, a key for every lock. For this very reason, people throughout the world use Valentines Day as a way to recognize their perfect counterpoint with the simple gift of a key.
At Belli Fiori, we take this tradition to heart, but believe there’s more than one way to find the key to your beloved’s heart. To better explain, here’s our top choices for Valentines Day dates that will win the heart of any wife, girlfriend, or significant other.
1. The Great Outdoors
Bundle up with scarves, hats, and coats, then make your way downtown or to your favorite hiking trail. Beforehand, draft a simple, handwritten note saying how much you love kissing your sweetheart. Make sure the note is easy to read and slip it into her hand as you walk together. Take her by the arm and gently move her into the nearest store alcove or behind the nearest tree and give her a romantic, swooning kiss.
2. Message in the Mirror
Make sure you get plenty of sleep the night before and wake up extra early the next morning, before your significant other. You’ll need time to get ready for your day and to write a special Valentine to her in her lipstick on the bathroom mirror. Make sure the message is short, caring, and above all else, romantic.
3. Splish Splash
Plan a relaxing, amative post-dinner bath with your sweetheart to escape winter’s cold embrace. Belli Fiori is the perfect place to stock up on essentials for this romanic soak. Light a few Lavender Vanilla Candles, brew a bag of Lavender Tub Tea, even lather each other with luxurious Lavender Almond Body Wash. Make sure you have two large, fluffy towels ready for after you get out and a tub of Belli Fiori’s Body Butter to rehydrate each other’s skin after you’ve sufficiently removed the winter’s chill from your bones.
4. Four Wheels and Meal
You know the restaurant—the one she always asks about or constantly takes company to. You probably even know the dish she wants already. Order for yourself and her and arrange for it to-go, picking it up around dinner time. Don’t reveal where you’re going just yet, but take your Valentine to the local lover’s lane or city light overlook. Light the candle you brought with you, placing it gently on the dashboard and surprise her with the perfect meal. Share an cozy moment by candlelight, high above the vista below, that you’ll both remember forever.
5. Rhythm and You
Dancing is the world’s great equalizer—bad or good, if you try earnestly it is always a special and intimate way to get close to that special someone. Find a local club or concert venue and secure two tickets. Plan to eat beforehand and start the dancing early—there’s plenty of time to sit down later when you’re both tired, but use the energy while you still have it and create a musical memory to last a lifetime.
Happy Valentines Day!
