Here we are, two days before Valentine’s day and let’s just say you’ve barely had time to eat three balanced meals daily or sleep for more than 4 hours let alone plan something for the upcoming holiday of love. For those in long term relationship, budding love or just want to show that you took the time to plan something out, try these last minute valentine ideas.
FOR THE LOVERS:
A helicopter ride around the city will surely take your love to new heights, bonus if said lover is heavy on the ‘gram, he/she will have material for days racking up those likes, you win and then win ?
GETTING TO KNOW YOU
Sweat it out together during a morning session at Soulcycle before heading out to brunch. 9:45am with Anthony. Light on the conversation but you will be able to see how competitive he/she gets.
Treat her to a blowout at DreamDry at the Waldorf Astoria location and then meet for drinks at Bernard’s Bar @ Waldorf Astoria. Order the “Cupid’s Crush” and if your date asks what is Lillet rouge you can drop this knowledge. Lillet is an aperitif from France in the Bordeaux area, founded by brothers Paul and Raymond Lillet and Lillet rouge is a red wine twist.
Coach floral oblong scarf because Spring is coming and if your relationship ends before then, they will never forget you because of their new favorite scarf.
OH SH!T IT’S TODAY?
