Show Your Love: A 6-Step Plan for a Very Special Valentine's Day

Get the formula for an intimate, caring, at-home-celebration-of-love.  Skip the restaurant scene (and madness) and start the night with a dish you have spent cooking for two days. Then, make sure you are wearing the proper outfit—we have some alluring choices for you to adopt into your wardrobe. Music is mandatory, and we've got the set-up that can turn your entire space into an amorous den. Provide some not-so-serious bubbly in adorable packaging for a light touch. Create romantic keepsakes with a new "polaroid-style" instant camera by Lomography (enter our contest to win this baby!) so you can cherish the night for years to come. Finally, come clean with a shared shower, for the ultimate in togetherness! See the details at http://hobnobmag.com/issue/25-valentines-day/
