Valentine’s Day is widely known as the most romantic day of the year. But how do you celebrate the big day when your significant other is hundreds or even thousands of miles away? Lifestyle expert, Justine Santaniello joined me for an interview recently to share great Valentine’s Day gift ideas for couples in long distance relationships and those who are fortunate to celebrate the day together!
Candace Rose: What’s the secret to making this Valentine’s Day special?
Justine Santaniello: “I think it’s just embracing the holiday and embracing its traditions, so for example, giving the person you love flowers. I am loving Teleflora’s new collection of professionally arranged and hand delivered Valentine’s Day bouquets. Here we have (please see video above for details) the Sweet Embrace. This is a three in one gift! You’re getting a beautiful arrangement in a handblown glass vase and a sparkling hearts bracelet.
I also love their Hearts of Gold arrangement, it’s filled with red roses, which are the ultimate symbol of love. You can get these bouquets and lots of others at Teleflora.com.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any suggestions for those who will be staying home this Valentine’s Day?
Justine Santaniello: “Yeah, I really like the idea of staying home and making dinner together and avoiding the crowds outside. You can make your favorite meal, its really intimate and romantic, and nothing says romance more like bubbly. Here we have Enza Prosecco, it’s really crisp and refreshing. It’s a classic Italian Prosecco, perfect for celebrations like Valentine’s Day because it pairs really nicely with the classics like chocolate and strawberries, which by the way makes the perfect dessert for your night in and really easy.
Not all of us, Candace are lucky enough to be able to spend Valentine’s Day with the person we love – 7 million couples in the U.S. are in long distance relationships, that’s huge. If you’re one of those people, probably the best gift you can give is helping to stay in touch with a sleek and stylish Android device like the Moto E on Net10 Wireless which offers all the latest smartphones on America’s top 4 networks for up to half the cost. The best part is it’s under $100. You choose the data that you want and the plans start as low as $40 a month. I really love that as an out of the box gift idea.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share with us?
Justine Santaniello: “It might sound cheesy, but just tell the people that you care about (no matter who that may be) how much you love and appreciate them. Just make sure and take the sentiment of Valentine’s Day and carry it beyond just the one day.”
