It is possible for men to think outside the (cheapest chocolate) box when celebrating Valentine’s Day. Instead of falling back on the default settings like the nearest bunch of roses, why not consider something a little bit more thoughtful to make Valentine’s a more romantic experience for a wife or girlfriend.
Chinese Love Heart Lanterns Glow in the Sky
glow.co.uk is an online retailer that specialises in a myriad of glowing products that can radiate the intimate warmth needed on February 14. Based in the North of England, the company has some great ways to fire love into the sky, like their Chinese Love Heart Lanterns, which have a design of two entwined hearts. Their mysterious glow can be seen climbing for several miles into the night for around 20 minutes and it’s a lot more romantic and biodegradable than a firework! If it is too cold to contemplate that gesture, then their red heart canvas light-up wall (pictured) will do the trick in making a romantic and glittering backdrop to a couple’s cosy night in.
