What would be your ideal date night for Valentine’s Day 2014?
“I’d love to cook an elaborate meal together at home, pop some really great wine, and just keep the TV off. Wear comfortable clothes, listen to records in bed—that sort of thing!”
Describe your best Valentine’s Day ever.
“I had my best Valentine’s Day ever last year! I had just met my now-husband, and we shared our first kiss that night. Joe and I have been inseparable ever since.”
What would you like to see your Valentine wear during your date?
“Joe is a well-dressed guy, but I love seeing him in his favorite jeans and a T-shirt. There’s something so relaxed and intimate about being that casual at home…I find it really attractive.”
What would you love to receive as a Valentine’s gift?
“A Shinola watch! I love this brand so much.”
