Valentine's Day Guide

Valentine’s Day is the one day a year you’re allowed to be shamelessly cheesy and over-the-top romantic—but how are you going to say ‘I love you'?

First, think of something that’s going to create a romantic experience. Don’t just give a gift and be done with it: give or do something that will create a memory. The problem is, creating an experience takes planning and planning takes time… and who has extra time!

The solution: give a gift that will lead to a night of activity. For example, don’t give a box of chocolates, give a chocolate fondue set.  

Here’s a list of other great ideas:
  • Smoker (buy a small meat smoker and smoke some fun creations together)
  • At-Home Sushi Set (mat, seaweed, sticky rice, sushi-grade salmon, etc.)
  • Mussels (make more than one pot to experiment with different wines and sauces)
  • Lobster (bring home live lobster for an authentic seafood experience)
  • Lebkuchenherzen Decorating (large German gingerbread hearts—decorate them together with nice messages to keep forever) *good family activity
  • Carcassonne (fun board game for 2-5 people) *good family activity 

Second, create a romantic (but safe) atmosphere. That means Candle Impressions® flameless LED candles, please!

Don suggests the Iridescent Icicle Flameless Candles—they are his absolute favorite. Wait, you don’t know who Don is? Be prepared to meet Don, the love expert, on Valentine’s Day for something special.

“[While] all of the flameless candles can be used in every aspect of entertaining, the Iridescent Icicle Wax Pillars add that extra punch,” says Don, the mysterious love expert. These beautiful flameless candles are available in 4, 6, and 8 inch heights and feature a programmable timer. Get your flameless candles in time for Valentine’s Day in 4 inches or 6 inches at

Another great choice are the Mini Wax Flameless Candles, specifically the Mini Hurricanes.

They come in packs of 2 and are made of beautiful cream wax with a subtle vanilla fragrance. We love these flameless candles because they look good anywhere and for any occasion. They’re great for placing on coffee or side tables while you sit back, relax, and enjoy a nice glass of wine. If you want to make them “love” themed, simply add a heart sticker to the front. Voila! A Valentine’s Day candle. Pick up your Mini Wax Flameless Candles at Bed Bath & Beyond, batteries included.

Every night you light your flameless candles, you’ll be reminded of that special night you shared together.

Good luck with your Valentine’s Day preparations! Remember: it’s the thought that counts.
