Romantics have turned to stargazing for over a thousand years. Shakespeare is credited with 128 references to the stars. Our language is filled with themes of the stars:
- I love you to the stars and beyond.
- I love you to the moon and back.
- They are star-crossed lovers.
- You are my sun, my moon, and all of my stars.
If you want to go beyond the cliche of roses and chocolate for Valentine’s Day, I’ve curated a list of great ideas for stargazing romantics. But honestly, get the roses and chocolates, too.
PERSONALIZED STAR MAP
A personalized star map is a great way to commemorate a special date. Choose the day you met, the day of your first date, your wedding anniversary, or some other special occasion, and get a star map of exactly what the sky looked like that night. Get it as a framed poster or as a piece of jewelry.
Plan an evening outside under the star for Valentine’s Day. But since February is a chilly month, bring along a constellation blanket to snuggle up and stay warm together under the stars.
