What you need for a romantic Valentine's Day date night in

If you're reading this article, there's a high chance you've already decided to swap the Valentine's Day traditions this year in favour of something a little more low-key. We don't blame you! Between the romantic gifts, surprise roses, expensive dinner reservations and the outfit that has to be just right, it's an expensive occasion most of us can live without.

But of course, Valentine's Day is also a great reminder to slow down and celebrate the love of your life, whether that's a husband, girlfriend, best friend or even yourself!

This year, keep it simple by putting together a rendezvous in your very own lounge room. We've got you sorted with a few wining and dining suggestions, but we also highly recommend fluffy robes, face masks and a cheesy movie or two to make it absolutely perfect.

Happy Valentine's, lovers!
