Valentine’s Day - Checklist of Services You’ll Need


Valentine’s day has always been about the romantic gestures and gifts.  According to Zagat, the quintessential Valentine’s day celebration includes dinner for two, twelve red roses and at least 2 sweet treats.  Sounds easy enough to pull off? Let’s not forget about the service providers who help you look your best and plan a very special day to celebrate your love. 

Twelve red roses. While you could chance it on February 14th by getting some flowers from the grocery store, a nearby deli or bodega, you’re probably better off ordering them in advance from the local florists. Better yet, why not order it for delivery to her (or his) office and get the extra admiration of the co-workers?

Looking your best for dinner.  What does that entail? Let’s start from the top, with a haircut or blow dry.  Better check if your favorite hairdresser or barber is available or find a backup? For women, a trip to the nail salon and a wax treatment at the spa might be called for? Is your dress or shirt for the evening in need of cleaning rather than just an extra spritz of perfume or cologne? 

Getting to dinner. If you’re a parent then it’s time to make sure you’ve booked the babysitter for Thursday night. Did another parent beat you to it? Ask you friends for some quick recommendations. Does the night warrant a special car service so that you can both enjoy the bottle of wine and drinks with dinner?

We’ve just scratched the service with the basic checklist of service providers who can help you pull off a great and hassle free Valentine’s day. Below are a few more ideas to make it the most memorable yet.

Couples massage. It is Valentine’s DAY, isn’t it? It doesn’t need to be just a romantic dinner. So why not include a relaxing massage at a day spa that you can both enjoy?

Dinner made by a private chef. Have your candlelight dinner at home with the meal prepared by a private chef and skip the crowded and noisy restaurants. It’s a night to focus on the two of you right?

Serenade your love. Probably better left to the professionals. Many local chorus and choirs such as Chorus of the Atlantic and Capital Accord Chorus are working on Valentine’s day to deliver special performances to offices, homes and restaurants.
