Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, I am planning the ultimate date night in. And yes, you read that right…I’m planning Valentine’s Day this year.
Ladies, we have to admit that we set our Valentine’s Day expectations a little high.
Sometimes, they’re met or even surpassed. Other times, we’re left wondering where the disconnect was. Either way, there’s a lot of pressure on our partners to create a great date, and this year, I am taking the pressure off of my husband and preparing a date just for him:
A Valentine’s Day Date Night In
When I thought about what the perfect date night in would look like for my husband, I thought about a few of his favorite things, and tops of the list is a good beer. Admittedly, I am not a huge beer drinker, but for this sweet holiday, I can make an exception.
I also knew that a great date night in couldn’t stop with beer…we had to eat, too! And that’s when it came to me: we love charcuterie platters when we go out to dinner, and while typically paired with wine, who says you can’t pair beer with cheese? Finally, we would need a little entertainment, and for that, we’ll be relying on good old Netflix (complete with candy, of course). After all, the couple that presses play together, stays together.
