Saturday, October 17th is National Sweetest Day. The holiday was created over 60 years ago by a Cleveland man who wanted to show the city’s orphans and the underprivileged that they were remembered.
In modern times, Sweetest Day is a good excuse and time for singles and couples to do nice gestures for each other. Fill the day with random acts of kindness and have a reason to celebrate.
Here are some suggestions and my dating advice for exchanging simple gifts and honoring your online date on National Sweetest Day.
A Single Rose. Bring your date one single rose. It has the same impact as the full dozen.
In Home Dining. Create a date night on Saturday night where the two of you cook together at home. Set the table with candles. If you don’t have time, bring home take-out or stop by the grocery store.
Love notes. Write a love note to your significant other and leave it on their pillow in the morning.
Simple Gifts. Buy a bottle of massage oil or foot massage cream for dessert.
Candy. ?It is Sweetest Day, so pick up a heart-shaped chocolate from your local chocolatier and present it to your date with a bow.
Music. Select a romantic CD of love songs to play in the background for your romantic dinner for two.
I hope you enjoy national Sweetest Day and if you get lucky in love, please do let us know!
