Not sure what to do for your sweetheart? Be inspired by the French! Here are 6 Valentines Day Tips that are guaranteed to win you an enchanted evening!
First you’re going to want to take your lady out for a lovely meal – at a French Restaurant of course! Make sure they have real candles on the tables (not those unromantic LED’s). After dinner, take a lovely stroll to gaze at the stars. A delicate French kiss might be just the perfect thing before bringing her gently home.
Then (and only then)…
1.Start with something sweet to eat… 💋
Try your hand at making these treats, or take the easy route and purchase French Ladurée Macarons from www.goldbelly.com.
Another idea would be to make Valentines shaped and frosted sugar cookies. Pillsbury even makes an addictive sugar cookie dough for those not into baking from scratch.
2. Continue with something sweet and bubbly to drink… 🥂
Moët Rosé Impérial is a spontaneous, radiant, romantic expression of the Moët & Chandon style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity.

3. Don’t forget the something sweet to smell… 🌹
Nothing better than the classic large bouquet of red roses. Skip the grocery ones, you want the quality that only comes from a real florist.
4. Let her hear a sweet poem… 💌
Try reading her a French love poem (and don’t forget the appropriate accent!). Here’s a favorite of mine, but any poet that speaks to you is perfect. If that’s not your game, then write your own poem or a love letter – bonus points if in French.
“A” – poem by Laetitia Sioen
And don’t forget to sprinkle in some romantic words of endearment throughout the evening…
Mon amour — My love
Mon/ma chéri(e) — My dear
Mon cœur —My heart
Ma biche — My doe
Mon trésor — My treasure
Mon chou — My cabbage
5. Dance with her to the sweet sounds of Johnny Hallyday or Edith Piaf… 💃🏼🕺🏻
6. Give her a tiny sweet thing to wear… 😳
Exquisitely comfortable. So comfortable in fact, that she will wear it again and again (a good investment for you!). This is one is the “Panama” model. It ships directly from France, but shipping is cheap for these little nothings.

The rest is up to the two of you.
Sweet dreams… 😴
