Thrill Your Sweetheart This Valentine’s Day Being credited as the month of romance, time spent in February is centered on Valentine’s Day and finding the most romantic gesture for a sweetheart. Rather than hunting for the most extravagant and expensive gift to surprise, take one of these simple measures of romance to heart. The top ten ways to be romantic in Warrenton constitute ideas of tradition and creativity, and especially, romance. 10. The classic flowers and candy. No matter what type of relationship a pair holds, this gift remains touching. Flowers comprise a loose spectrum of feelings, spending budget and time frame. Visit Village Flowers or Designs by Theresa on Main Street or Like Water For Flowers on Third Street for an array of floral assortments. Whether you want to send a single rose as a secret admirer, send a bouquet of flowers to your lover at work, or simply do a last-minute pickup, the florist is always appropriate. 9. Sipping warm drinks with a significant other. Take a break during the cold February day and treat him or her to a beverage at a coffee shop or café. Earthly Paradise, Essentials, and Black Wolf coffee shops are cozy and comfortable for an afternoon chat. Blue Sage Café, Waterloo Café, and Café

Torino welcome paired customers kindly. 8. The ultimate gift. If there is that special someone who you feel is worthy of a longlasting representation of your love, a well thought out gift comes to play. This is the reason why boutiques were created. Pull into any of your preferred shopping centers in Warrenton and you are bound to find a tiny shop with a. jewelry, b. household décor, or c. appealing articles of clothing. Warrenton Village Shopping Center, Warrenton Shopping Center, Oak Springs Plaza Shopping Center, Waterloo Station Shopping Center, Huntsman Towne Village Shopping Center, and Old Town Warrenton all contribute fine jewelry and specialty shops. 7. Fine dining. A dinner date is a romantic way to spend Valentine’s evening with the love of your life. With the burden of cooking eschewed, time one-on-one with the person can be rather relaxing. Restaurants such as Old Town’s The Depot, Napoleon’s, Legend’s and Warrenton Shopping Center’s Tadpole Café serve well. 6. Hand-made gifts. Nothing denotes the effort of affection like a gift made from the heart and crafted by hand. At whatever level of skill you stand, your endeavors will

be apparent in the time you find to decorate and personalize pottery at Earth Glaze & Fire or create bead art at The Bead Shoppe, which contains an array of jewelry-making products. 5. Lovely entertainment. Poetry is one of the sweetest and most sophisticated ways of expression. If writing poems are not part of your pastime, reciting rhymes composed by distinguished poets is just as tender. BJ’s Books always has a great selection of gently used books and the new Borders covers just about everything else. If an expression of love through literature is not suitable, then consider celebrating feelings by watching a romantic film. Love stories always help to re-inflate hidden emotions that should be brought to life on Valentine’s Day. There are many places in Town to purchase a DVD or video. Gift wrap it, accompanied with a package of popcorn. 4. Romantic homemade dinner. Even if expenditure is tight, there is still hope in romanticizing the evening. Just stock up on main course meal ingredients and prepare a candle-lit dinner. If dinner is not an appropriate time, a secluded picnic will do. All that is necessary to set the feast in full swing are a set of candles, soft music, proper etiquette, and a well-prepared meal. Find a favorite recipe of your date’s to cook if you are a natural in the field of culinary. Need assistance? Head over to Jimmie’s Market for some tips and premium ingredients and accompanying beverage. The Grapevine and the Town Duck also have terrific selections of fine wines to go with your meal. 3. A walk in Warrenton. Holidays are usually all about family, events and always, celebration. V-Day is one exception to the acclaimed dates - it is about two lovebirds and no more. No other holiday allows for such intimate one-on-one commemoration. Take the opportunity to walk through nature with your loved one and experience the same forces that brought the two of you together. Rady Park, the Green Way, Old Town, even the neighborhood streets or backyard is appropriate. 2. An evening outdoors. The Valentine’s Day sunset is the most wondrous naturally occurring symbol of beauty to be witnessed. Find a secluded spot where the landscape does the day justice and sit side-by-side in satisfaction. 1. “I do.” Follow your heart on Valentine’s Day to an evocative location, get down on one knee, and profess your love. Need I say more?

A Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift Stuck on a gift idea for your sweetie? We’ve got a sure-winner for you. By Amy Petty


h, Valentine’s Day. The time of year when romance is alive and hope springs eternal for sweethearts young and old. Looking for something other than a box of chocolates for your special someone? Then Salon Emage Day Spa is just the spot to find the perfect pampering gift to suit the needs of anyone who holds a special place in your heart. From the moment I was led into the changing room, Salon Emage Day Spa set the tone for relaxation. My locker had been personalized with my name, and held a luxurious terry cloth gown, robe and slippers for my transformation from harried to tranquil. I was ready for my first facial. Once I was settled in my new spa wear, I met Charla Malone. As Salon Emage Day Spa’s aesthetician, she offers a wide variety of facials (see below), as well as other services. I quickly learned that getting a facial also includes getting an education. As Charla shared a wealth of information on skin care, it was clear her training at the Aveda Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida was extensive. The setting for the spa services is calm and serene. Quiet music, soft lighting, and rattan chairs help create an environment that is as inviting to the senses as it is soothing to the spirit. The heated bed doesn’t hurt, either. Charla began the facial, which includes energy balance and movements, power cleansing (sometimes with steam), exfoliation, hand and arm massage, upper body massage, mask, and finished with a toner to restore the Ph balance and mois-

turizer. Every facial is personalized to meet the client’s skin care needs. After the facial, I think I was beyond relaxed. Imagine what would happen if you followed it up with a massage? Salon Emage Day Spa has two certified massage therapists, Alissa Jones and Emma Stuparu. Following a similar model, the therapists meet with their clients to discuss the treatment. Clients can choose between several offerings to find the massage to best meet their needs. Crystal Charnock and Christen

From the front desk and pedicure massage chairs to the heated beds and sauna... relaxation is what it’s all about.
