So you think you have all the important romance dates down, Valentine’s Day, your anniversary, and your love’s birthday? Here’s one more date to add to your calendar – August is National Romance Month!
In the midst of summer vacations, pool parties and family cookouts don’t forget to set some time aside for romance! Here are four simple tips to keep your summer sizzling:
A Gift Idea To Set The Mood
Start off by making sure your one and only is wrapped in something appealing. A negligee is so cliché. We recommend his and her Seersucker Robes from Coyuchi – with nothing underneath! It’s made from organic cotton, starts out soft and only gets better with washing. So you can both enjoy it for ‘the long haul’! It feels great on the body and on your conscience.
Whip Up A Batch Of Brunch Worthy Waffles For A Romantic Breakfast In Bed
Breakfast in bed is a perfect way to say, “I love you so please stay in bed!” Whip up your favorite homemade waffles, top with KRUPS Strawberry Mint Waffle Topping and jump back in the sack for a relaxing morning together!
Strawberry Mint Waffle Topping
2 cups chopped strawberries
1/2 agave syrup
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Place strawberries, agave, and mint in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; cook until syrup dissolves. Place the strawberry mixture in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Strain and stir in lemon juice. Pour over waffles.
A Romantic Morning Mimosa
If preparing waffles is a little more than your skill set – or time – allows, surprise your partner with an AM Happy Hour. Whipping up a Summer Kiss is quick, easy and will set the mood for the rest of the day. If you include waffles with Strawberry Mint Waffle Topping we guarantee that there are bonus ‘romance’ points in store for you!
