With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, the pressure is on to find the perfect gift for your sweetheart. As more and more couples are looking to skip the gift and focus on the experience this year, DoubleTree by Hilton has tips for planning an affordable and uniquely romantic evening or weekend:
– Plan a getaway… at a hotel in your own backyard: A romantic escape in your own hometown is a great way to “get away” from life’s daily stresses without having to go too far – or breaking the bank. Plus, with Valentine’s Day on a Monday this year, you can add an extra day of romance to your weekend together.
– Pack a picnic: Fill up a picnic basket with all of the foods and luxuries that you both enjoy most – think chocolates or gourmet take-out from a favorite restaurant. This allows you to spend time one-on-one, without the hassle and high price of dining at a restaurant.
– Fill the day with little surprises: Take a bubble bath, plan a movie marathon, and make a playlist of favorite songs that you can both relax to. Remember – Valentine’s Day is really about the experience and enjoying every moment together.
– Find deals that let you indulge yourselves. Look for deals that do the planning for you with some great value-added bonuses. DoubleTree by Hilton’s “Sweet Romance Getaway” package greets couples with a bottle of sparkling wine waiting in the room so you can kick off the Valentine’s Day celebration in style. Plus, you’ll even receive a full breakfast in the room or in the restaurant, and perks like early check in and late check out so you are guaranteed extra quality time with your sweetheart. And who could forget that the hotel’s legendary, warm chocolate chip cookies, are a guaranteed sweet treat for everyone at the end of the night!
