Celebrating a big Valentines night in with Moonpig
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Moonpig are here to help us couples prepare for the big night in, Lockdown style!
Yes, we can’t go out for snazzy meals, or perhaps a trip to the cinema as we would like to the current lockdown, but why not make Valentines Day extra special this year by staying home and making the most of it with Moonpig!
I for one am looking forward to Valentine’s Day. Although we are spending every day in each others company due to being furloughed, it will be nice to have something to look forward to and plan something that is a little more special than a standard home cooked meal on an evening.
We have all been through so much within the last year, so let’s make this one a good day/night to remember.
How are We Planning Valentines Day this Year?
So in the morning we will make Valentine’s Day extra special for the family. We have three children, so we will be gifting small Valentines Day gifts to them. Nothing big, but just a small gift to show how much we love them on a the most loved up day of the year.
So we have heart shaped lolly pops, along with love heart sweets and a small teddy. Our kids are little warriors with what they have been through and missed out on within the last year, so yes, some small gifts to just remind them how much we love them.
Some days have been harder than others, and little do they know how much their hugs and kisses heal us parents more than they will know. Sometimes it really is their hugs that we need more than anything!
We all love to indulge in good food, so this year we are planning to make a three-course meal and cook this together on Valentines Day evening. Daddy A has decided he would choose to do the starters and deserts, where I will make the main course.
We are thinking Mushroom Soup followed by Chinese curry and egg fried rice and for desert a lovely apple crumble. Everything will me home made from scratch following a few trusted recipes we have used in the past.
But let’s talk about Moonpig gifts
We like to give gifts that are meaningful and we have some great ideas to share for your perfect other half. Well let’s talk about gifts for a certain lady in your life this Valentines Day
I think a candle would be a perfect gift, you can’t go wrong with a Yankee Candle and they will always be greatly received.
Yankee Candle are so fragrant and really do make the room smell magnificent in no time. I do particularly like this scent of lush, delightful apricot and soft petals. Fragrance Notes: Top: Sun Drenched Apricot, Nectarine Blossom Mid: Apricot Roses, Gardenia Petals Base: Sheer Musk, Soft Powder.
I love how long lasting Yankee Candles are, I have one I was gifted two years ago, and I am still using it, yes I don’t burn it all the time but it must have been lit about 30-40 times and just over half way gone so they really do last a great length of time.
The great thing about Moonpig, is that you can buy gifts from the comfort of your own home and get them delivered to your destination. So you are completely staying safe within your home and have your thoughtful gifts delivered to your loved ones by letting Moonpig take care of the rest.
