Romance Ninja

As Valentine’s day draws nearer, I can’t help but overthink how this day has often passed down in infamy. And for a good reason. 

If you are in a relationship, you must make this day memorable, spend ridiculous amounts of money to impress your SO, make reservations to some snobby, overpriced venue and somehow find a form of after-dinner entertainment that will play well on social media.

If you are not in a relationship – what’s wrong with you? Why doesn’t anybody love you? You may be left debating a losing argument with your bottle of chardonnay.

If you don’t care - and, I must confess, this is the team I most often belong to – you might have a shot at living through this day without severe anxiety attacks and with your bank account almost intact.

Whether you are in love, or not, or simply don’t care, you can organize something unbelievably cute and memorable that won’t break the bank. In fact, if you simply order Upicnic, there’s a very real chance of you not only surviving Valentine’s day, but actually rocking it!  Here’s Upicnic’s road-map for a successful celebration of love so you can effortlessly wow your friends, dates, and loved ones:

Make it easy: stay home, because everywhere else will be overcrowded and overpriced.

Make it cozy: it’s the middle of February – who wants to deal with snow anymore? Snuggies, blankets and other woolly layers will keep you comfortable, warm and toasty. I’d throw a lit fireplace in there too, but we all know that, in NYC, that’s just wishful thinking. 

Make it yummy: nothing too fancy, yet delicious - finger food is what you want to aim for. Playful, mouthwatering, healthy and, what’s most important, outsourced – so the house doesn’t smell like food and you don’t have to worry about shopping, cooking and cleaning.​

Make it fun: you watch cable every other day of the year – but when was the last time you played Uno? Or how about a Cards Against Humanity tournament?

Make it memorable: staying home, doesn’t mean being lazy and predictable. Sure, flowers and candles will help, but you know what’d be really cool? Push the furniture aside, lay a blanket in the middle of your living room and turn your apartment into unexplored territory.

Personally, I would also advise to keep it small - a few friends, or your SO, is all you need. Because, honestly, you don’t need to be surrounded by hoards of strangers passing judgement. But maybe you’re into that, so.

Upicnic has you covered, so you can be the romance ninja you were born to be. Cue blankets. Cue intimacy. Cue November babies.
