Valentine's Day Alternatives for the Too-Tired-to-Celebrate
Cook an “Interesting” Meal Together
A fun idea I learned about from my friend, Barb, is to order a unique dinner that you and your spouse can cook together. Barb and her husband are ordering a Lobster Gram this year. The company ships packages of ocean-fresh, live Maine lobster to arrive the day you wish to cook them. The Lobster Gram dinner for two includes two live Maine lobsters (you select the size), two shell crackers and seafood forks, two Lobster Gram bibs and moist towelettes, fresh whole lemon and butter, and a Lobster Gram cooking manual. If you aren’t a lobster fan, the company also offers a variety of Surf and Turf options as well as Gourmet Steaks and other seafood choices.
Sometimes, it can be daunting to think that we always have to celebrate Valentine’s Day as if we’re a newly dating couple. As couples journey through the years, tougher times, diapers, and tantrums together, perhaps a more appropriate way to spend the holiday now and then is by celebrating how comfortable they have become with one another. Should you so desire, you should absolutely head out to dinner and a movie together. Stop in to Victoria’s Secret if you’re so inclined. But know that there are other, equally romantic (and practical) options should this sort of celebration not float your proverbial boat this year.
