(BPT) – Valentine’s Day has changed a bit over the past few years. Instead of reserving a table at a fancy restaurant or securing tickets to the opera or theater, most people nowadays celebrate the annual holiday of love from the comfort of home. For the many who are staying in rather than heading out this Valentine’s Day, there are plenty of ways to enjoy a romantic time with that special someone, from cooking up a delectable dish made with the freshest foods, to creating a luxurious home spa for some pure relaxation.
1. The best meal with the freshest food and perfectly kept wine
Top-rated restaurants with star chefs, flawless table service and atmospheric surroundings really set the mood for a memorable Valentine’s Day meal. Flavorful dishes and sumptuous experiences all begin with the freshness of the ingredients.
The good news is, with the LG SIGNATURE Refrigerator, it’s possible to keep ingredients at their freshest at home too, so you can create your own restaurant-quality meal to share and savor on Cupid’s favorite day. And why not complement your culinary masterpiece with a bottle of wine (or two), perfectly preserved in the LG SIGNATURE “Wine Cellar” refrigerator.
Advanced technology known as “linear cooling” ensures the temperature inside the refrigerator remains incredibly stable, maintaining temperature fluctuations to within just 33.8 degrees Fahrenheit (1-degree Celsius) and helping to keep your ingredients fresher for longer. Meanwhile a fresh-shield thermal barrier of cold air that drops downward whenever the door is opened helps maintain the fridge’s internal temperature and locks in freshness as well. And then there’s the wide, deep storage drawer called a custom-chill pantry with quick, customizable settings for storing a wide range of items, including meat and produce, at the ideal temperature. Struggling for inspiration on what to cook this Valentine’s Day? Why not look up some “can’t-miss” recipes and instructional cooking videos on one of the many smart recipe platforms available.
A glass of Champagne or Rosé is always nice when enjoying an intimate meal for two, and that’s where the Wine Cellar fridge comes in. Chilling wines to perfection, each shelf of the advanced appliance provides the optimal conditions for preserving different wine varieties. With precise temperature, humidity and vibration control, and preventing V+UV light from damaging its precious contents, the Wine Cellar offers everything needed for professional-grade wine preservation.
2. Relax for a Luxurious and Cozy Spa Day
A luxurious spa trip most likely graces the very top of your Valentine’s Day wish list, but many couples haven’t yet realized just how easy it is to create a DIY luxury spa day experience that’s just as relaxing and revitalizing as spending a small fortune on an exclusive resort — not to mention more intimate with the comforts of home helping you feel safe and letting you spend your time together in complete privacy.
But it can’t be called the perfect pampering day without a leisurely soak in the bath — or hot tub if you’re so lucky — accompanied by fragrant bath salts, a bottle of your finest wine and the perfect pairing of drinks and bite-sized canapés. Set out these delicacies on a marble bathtub caddy tray and lose yourself in the tranquil sensations created by the feeling of warm water against the skin and the smells of sweet aromas, because nothing really beats a classic bubble bath with good food and your soulmate close by. Next, try turning the romance up a notch by giving your partner the most unforgettable massage, and gift them aroma oils and hydrating masks to make them feel extra special.
3. Enjoy a Luxuriously Lazy Movie Marathon
Follow up your meal with a romantic movie night on the sofa. Dim the lights, get cozy under a nice, soft blanket, and get set for the perfect, private viewing experience.
And since it’s Valentine’s Day, how about replacing the typical movie-watching snacks like beer and potato chips, with some artisan chocolates and wine? There’s no need to worry about spills either, as they can be easily taken care of by the latest washing machine technology. For instance, a sophisticated new LG SIGNATURE “twin-wash” washing machine comes with a special Stain Care 24 feature, designed for flawless care of 24 different types of stains to keep your finest garments — and blankets — looking great.
Mix it up by watching one of your favorite romantic flicks and then something you’ve both never seen before. New technology called “8K” is TV that has 33 million pixels — 16 times the resolution of HDTV. With an ultra-large 88-inch screen that expresses outstanding colors and details that rival a movie theater, the new LG SIGNATURE OLED 8K makes it feel like you’re watching your favorite movie for the very first time, even if you’ve already seen it a million times. And if you’re not looking to spend most the evening simply selecting your perfect movie list, the AI TV even recommends the best films for a rom-com marathon or a night of endless laughs. Can your local cinema do that? Don’t think so.
Home really is, as the saying goes, where the heart is — so what better place to spend the most romantic of days with your one and only? By transforming your home into that romantic getaway you’ve been missing out on the last few years, let this Valentine’s Day be the most special yet without even leaving the comforts of home.
