A Romantic Staycation Wishlist

Le jour de St. Valentine is upon us. Rouge is everywhere. In Travel Gourmande, a romantic getaway would be the most ideal gift. But for those planning a staycation, here are a few ideas for the home.

1. Potion Magique Carafe by Pied de Poule  / 2. Marimekko Oiva Teapot by Crate and Barrel  3. Sahara Teapot Handblown Glass, Havana French Summer Tea,and Rainbow Tea Cup by Mariage Frères  / 4. Chaise Bridge Ava by  Roche Bobois /  5. Esprit Circle Red Area Rug  / 6. Sensual Aromatherapy Massage Oil (Black Currant Vanilla) by Bath and Body Works   /  7.  Love Collection Set of 6 Napkin Rings Design by Setsu and Shinobu Ito for Guzzini / 8.  Cast Iron Fondue Set by  Crate and Barrel  

The hubs and I usually don't celebrate it even though this has been one of my favorite occasions. I used to enjoy giving a single red rose to each of my best friends every 14th of February, when I was in my teens till we finished university. I remember back in the office in my last employment, the women also received single red roses from the Regional Director each year. He didn't have to but I think that was nice.

Do you celebrate Valentine's Day?
What have you planned?
Happy Tuesday everyone!

{P.S.I wrote this post while the twin baby nieces are sleeping during their afternoon nap and their sister is outside for a swim. I'm enjoying the happy time with the family at the moment at home.}
