Valentine’s Day Movies for 2014

Young couple sharing a glass of red wine in restaurant, celebrating or on romantic date If you’re planning to impress this Valentine’s Day with a romantic night in, you know that the evening hinges on the details. Mood lighting, place setting, and a suitably impressive recipe are all de rigueur for any Pinterest-er worth one’s salt, but of equal importance is your wine choice. Instead of simply selecting a Tuscan Sangiovese to enjoy with rack of lamb, take time to pair it with a movie too! Below are some of the best Valentine’s Day date movies (displayed in random order), which we’ve paired with a selection of wines to take your date to the next level:


Memorable Christmas Gifts He’ll Love

When it comes to Christmas gifts for the man in your life, there are a lot of what-ifs. Like what if he completely out gifts you? Or he doesn’t think that heinous sweater is funny? And what if that thing you were unsure about but convinced yourself to buy anyway is something he completely hates? Exactly – you see the point – one wrong purchase and things can go terribly awry. That’s why, this year, you should skip the mob scene to the mall, save a small fortune on wrapping paper, and give him the gift of an experience, which eliminates basically all the what-ifs of tangible objects.

Christmas Gifts For Men

For the Sports Fan

Take him (and possibly his friends) out to the ball game! (Of course, “his friends,” means include yourself if you want to and by “ball game,” understand that you can treat him to whatever sport he likes most.) It’s fun, unique, and a total thrill because how often does he get to do this? Basically never. If he plays golf, a round complete with a reserved golf cart for him and his friends is a great substitute for game tickets. And in addition to becoming the object of his pals’ affections, this act of kindness also puts you in the running for Best Girlfriend (or Wife) of the Year Award.

For the Artsy Guy

Music and museums and movies – oh yes! If artsy things peaks your guy’s interest, check out events in your local area, including plays, exhibits, concerts, and film showings, that appeal to him. Make sure to find out what’s playing in IMAX 3D because films from yesteryear frequently make comebacks on the big screen, which he’ll no doubt love. And since these outings are generally pretty inexpensive, consider getting tickets (or gift cards for tickets) that can be used for something different every month. That way, he’s got a hot date a pre-planned at least every 4 weeks, which is pretty thoughtful (not to mention adorable).
