Here at The City Market, we love helping you celebrate the Valentine’s Day traditions that make this day so special. Everyone has their own traditions and do them in their own special way. It’s what makes Valentine’s Day such a special holiday: to go above and beyond to show that special someone you love them, it’s such a beautiful thing. Below are a few of the many Valentine’s Day traditions we absolutely adore here at The City Market. Stop by today, and let us help you to partake in these traditions like so many people have been doing for generations!
‘I Love You’ cards
There is nothing more special than having that special someone give you a Valentine’s Day card that expresses their love for you. From writing a heartfelt note inside the card to finding that perfect, pre-written card that perfectly describes your relationship, I Love You cards are cherished by the receiver. It’s a simple way of showing that you care about someone, and a great way to put a smile on your loved one’s face. Want to make your I Love You cards even better? Gift it with a bundle of roses!
What is it about chocolate that says, “I love you;” maybe because everybody loves chocolate? We don’t really know what the answer is, but chocolate is certainly the ‘candy of love.’ The beauty of giving chocolates to your loved one on V-Day is that you don’t necessarily have to purchase chocolate candies in heart-shaped boxes (though those are delicious as well). Rather, it’s fair game to find chocolate your special someone loves, wrap them in a festive, heart-shaped box/bag, and give them to your loved one. Whichever method of gifting chocolate you decide to use, your significant other will love it!
Just like chocolate is the candy of love, so too is wine the ‘drink of love’ Nothing spells romance quite like a fine bottle of wine at a candle-lit dinner, and it’s a great way to show your loved one that they are special to you. It’s one of the only times of the year when splurging on an expensive bottle of wine is acceptable. What are you waiting for? Do it!
A dinner made with love
Take the money you would use on a nice, romantic dinner and use that on wine and fresh ingredients at The City Market! This approach is a great idea anyway. While many people opt to dine out on Valentine’s Day, there is arguably nothing more romantic than cooking a meal at home for your loved one. Most people will agree that a meal ‘made with love’ is more meaningful and special than sharing a meal at the finest restaurant in your community. Thus, we present to you one of the more popular, modern Valentine’s Day traditions.
Your significant other has a favourite dish, so why not cook it for him/her? They will be over the moon as the two of you enjoy a nice bottle of wine, good food, and a private dinner reserved for two – to us, there’s nothing better!
