Whether it’s Valentine’s Day, your anniversary, or Friday date night, staying in can be as if not more romantic than going out. Here are a few of our favourite things for setting the mood.


Uncork a bottle of red, such as Summerhill Pyramid Winery’s Organic Pinot Noir. Pour it into these chic stemless glasses from West Elm.


Serve a snack alongside the wine; we’re eyeing this Grilled Ciabatta with Caperberry Relish from goop. Simple yet unique.


Our sultry new Velvet Essential Oil Blend, made with Frankincense, Bergamot, and Amber, is the perfect aroma—a little spicy, a little smoky, a little fresh. Add 20 drops to a diffuser.

Velvet vibe


We’re so excited about Velvet that we made a Spotify playlist inspired by it. Think sexy yet sophisticated tunes that will inspire some at-home dancing.


When it’s time to cuddle up, do so under this soft grey throw from Parachute Home. Handmade in Peru from 100 per cent alpaca yarn, it’s warm, cozy, and comfortable.

Staying in is the new going out.
