Why not go ahead this year and enjoy a movable feast with your Valentine's sweetheart? All you need for example is an authentic old time hand-woven picnic basket a meal filled with love, and a romantic bottle of wine.
With Valentine's dinners running over $200 at the better restaurants, and a dozen of here-today-gone-tomorrow roses topping out at $100 in some markets, a romantic candlelight dinner for two, served on a picnic hamper, is one of the most romantic things two lovers can do.
If the weather is too frosty for an outdoors picnic , just pick a warm spot in front of the fireplace or headboard.
There is a wide variety of designs and styles to choose from, with many including dinnerware, flatware, wine glasses or champagne flutes, and even a built-in cozy to keep the vintage bottle warm or cold.
It's like having the restaurant come to you without the takeout containers and the delivery guy.
Long after the flowers are wilted, the memory of romantic picnic for two will play on, and one can be pretty sure that your special someone will be the only girl in her group with the bragging rights to a romantic evening.
Unlike flowers or an evening at the Big Bucks Buffet, these ideas will continue delivering love all year long. Leave the Roses to the amateurs this year.
