How to Plan the Most Romantic Valentine’s Day Ever


Most of us are familiar with the standard Valentine’s Days drill: wine, chocolate, flowers. But what if the holiday is starting to feel very “been there, done that”? To spice things up, we’ve planned for you the ultimate Valentine’s Day with help from a few must-have products.

Of course, Wine Enthusiast’s version of an over-the-top V-Day involves wine, whiskey and anything else you can sensuously sip. That’s why our how-to guide is packed with everything from the perfect mood-setting serving ware to a plush, wine-themed robe. Snag a couple of the items below for your sweetheart—or, if you’re feeling it, for yourself.

But planning a swoon-worthy Valentine’s Day celebration is about more than buying stuff. It requires considering the objective of a specific goodie. Are you trying to set the mood? Dress up an intimate dinner spread? Bring a party on the road for an al fresco moment? We’re here to help you answer those questions and more.
