It can be a hard to get concert ticket or dinner reservations at an upscale restaurant, anything that changes the mood right away.
#4 – Plan a cozy eat-in
If you are both into cozier and intimate moments rather than going out in public then plan a cozy dinner in. Whoever cooks best can take up that duty while the other sets the table and the atmosphere. Or opt for a takeaway and then cozy up on the couch before the fire. The fact that you are celebrating love cocooned away from the world can be a heady feeling by itself.
